Sunday, the Coca Cola 600 was cancelled for rain for the first time in 49 years. This was the 50th anniversary running of it at the Lowes Motor Speedway. It was postponed until Monday. (I,we, are NOT Nascar fans. Have never been to a race, etc.)
Sunday night, five free tickets for the tower fell into our laps. Landon and I decided that he and the big boys had to go. At least this once. He took Jason and Clay for the other two tickets.
A friend from up North was here, and had the tickets because it was his sons Make-A-Wish to go to the Coca Cola 600 and meet Junior. If you are from the South, you know who Junior is. His dad was simply, Senior, lol.
He had to fly back home on Monday to start his treatments for his cancer, so they gave us their tickets. Guess what? It was called for rain again.
So this no name won. Why? Everyone had gone in for a pit stop when they called the race. So, the boys didn't get to see the most exciting part of a race. The final 50 laps where everyone really starts racing and passing each other. And a wreck or two takes place. Oh well, at least they were dry, right?
