It’s a holiday weekend here in the US.  We celebrate our independence and this occurs every July 4th!   Its a great time for family barbeques, going out to see the fireworks at night, see a baseball game and if you are a fan of NASCAR – you can attend or watch the Coke Zero 400 in Daytona, Florida at 7:30 PM EST.    I consider myself a casual fan of NASCAR.  I do enjoy watching the races and follow the standings.   For the past years my sister has had Daytona 500 tickets.  I have attended 4 races so far.  I have been to manydifferent sporting events and must admit…the Daytona Raceway is one of my favorite sporting events ever to attend!

Its a full day of enjoyment.  If you have never attended a race…I’d say its a must!  The sounds and crowds are fantastic to be a part of.  If you are lucky enough to be at the race today…summer in Florida can be tough!  Please keep cool!  I’ll will be at Daytona again this upcoming February.  And will post more info as the race nears.  Here is a photo I took of my favorite driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. from the Daytona in 2008 (50th year of Daytona 500!)  We had “Pit Passes” so we were allowed to get close.   I added a little photoshop touch to the pic to add to the shot.    Enjoy the race and the 4th of July!!!
