Q Give us a play-by-play of your experience? Did you travel from far? What was your favorite part of your experience?
A I actually live 20-30 minutes away from the speedway, but had to travel from the University of Arkansas. We got to the track early each morning and stayed till the end of the day each day. Friday and Saturday we spent a lot of time in the garage watching the teams go through practice and hunting down drivers for autographs. You could usually find us hanging out at the 24 hauler. On race day we waited around the Hollywood Hotel most of the morning to get autographs from Jeff Gordon. We spent most of the race behind the 24 pit box.
