Yea, sears is really nice now. I was there, but I was sitting at turn 7. You can see most of the track there too. That was the best seat (it's where everyone was spinning out) :shock: I loved that 3 car tandem drift on turn 7. I thought I was watching an options video :D. Traffic wasn't so bad on the way up. I went up 121 around 11-11:30. It was smooth sailing. Unfortunately, it took aboiut 1hr just to get to Napa on the way back. It was fun, tho. Made me want to take my car out on the track!!

I haven't been to Sears Point since they levelled all the mountains. I've been to pretty much all the NASCAR races there since the started up to a few years ago. I've spent many 6hr drives just trying to get out of the parking lot. The best way is to come in a motor home the day before and stay after the race and cook dinner and let the lot clear out. Leaving Sears Point just plain sucks. I've been to Fontana and we got out of the parking lot in less than 15 minutes. Although the racing at Fontana was just boring, it looks a lot better on TV. My dad is a big NASCAR fan and I just tag along. Did I tell you I beat Jeff Gordon in a 2 lap race in NASCAR Racing? We usually went to the Dupont Hospitality tent and I got randomly picked to race Jeff on the computer. This was when I was practicing like crazy in the game at the time. You could say I smoked him :) . I got a signed jacket out of the deal, which I gave to my dad. NASCAR drivers are actually pretty cool in person. Ran into a lot of them at local resturants, especially when we were going to Phoenix.
