Roger at the Price Chopper 400 Race
Sunday, Oct. 4th, my first experience at the Kansas Speedway, 100,000 strong for the Price Chopper
400...glad I brought my Bose noise cancelers, IT"S LOUD!!!!
Kelly and I were guests of Time Warner Cable and enjoyed a tour throught the tunnel (under the speedway)
out into the race pit, where the pit crew take things very seriously!
The classic rock band, Kansas were sounding great on stage with "Carry On My Wayward Son", then it was
race time! You MUST take in NASCAR, it's just impossible to explain the roar of 42 cars burning rocket
fuel at the green flag. The smell, the extreme sound, the pride of American machinery, and then the
Steath's do their fly-over....AMAZING!! Watch out Arrowhead, there's a new game in town (even though the
speedway has been racin' for 10 years now)
And what about the Racing stars?? Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin, Dale Jr, Kyle Bush (all, household names) and
the winner to take that golden trophy?
Congrats to Tony Stewart, now a 2 time Sprint Cup winner at the Kansas Speedway, what a Sunday!
