A little more form the Daytona 500….typically I get “Pit Passes” for each time I attend the race. Just adds to the enjoyment of the festivities. You do not actually get into the pits (that is for family and sponsors only)…but you get to walk by or see within a few feet. In one section you get to walk by the garages of each driver. They have windows to peer in. I was lucky Kyle Busch above had his small window open to let in air. This allowed me to peek my camera inside and take this photo. I added a little flare to the shot and thanks to onOne’s Photo Frame 4.6…the film border effect was a cool effect.
They allow you to walk around on the inside of the track until 30 minutes before the race. Walking on the track is a must. My tradition is to sign the starting line (get there early to get your name on the track!). You really get the feel of the track and see how steep the banks are! About 1/4 mile section is open for you to explore. I sat on the ground and grabbed this shot of the new pavement for the race…Turn 4 is ahead.
