For those who do not follow NASCAR, the Gatorade Duels are the 2 150 mile races that decide who will race in the 500 and who will go home. The field consists of 43 drivers; about 50-54 try to qualify for the big race. The pole is decided by who runs the fastest qualifying lap on the previous Sunday. Gatorade duels decide what 43 drivers are going to be in the race, and positions are decided by either your position of finish in the duels or the speed you ran in pole qualifying.
After the races, we met up with Bob's brother Tom and his SO, Susie......
So, if you have nothing to do on Sunday, Valentine's day, take a look at the race...we will be sitting in the Superstretch (aka, backstretch) near the Budweiser Party Porch..(imagine that!). I root for Tony Stewart, #14 Office Depot/Old Spice car...I have all the gear, and I will be cheering like a mad woman....look for us! Will post more pictures next week!
Until next time, Gentlefolk, start your engines and let's go racin'!!!!!!
