Neon Garage, Las Vegas Motor Speedway 

I thought the most interesting part of our NASCAR experience was the day we spent at the new Neon Garage area on the practice and qualifying day, where we were able to watch the drivers and crews up-close – much closer then I ever imagined.  

From the Neon Garage, you could see into the car garage areas from the ground level, and from above.  There really wasn’t a thing we couldn’t see.  You could even stand about 10 feet away as the cars went through inspection.  It was fascinating.  The list of drivers we saw was long.  

I picked this photo of Carl Edwards because I liked the way he and the crew member were gathered around the car.  Most drivers tended to stand back about 10 feet with their hands on their hips – or more likely, scratching and shaking their heads.

  2. Is that true about the lawyers? When I went to the NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis last year I found that event to be very accessible. You can hang out with the drivers there. I imagine Nascar to have a similar type of atmosphere.

    I’m in Albuquerque right now, I’m going to try to get up to Santa Fe on Saturday and maybe Sunday. A lady at a gallery in Old Town here told me tonight about all sorts of places to see in New Mexico. You should stop by the state on your trip. It’s cool.
