New Experiences: NASCAR

Kansas Speedway

Kansas Speedway

Last month my hubby got tickets to a NASCAR race at Kansas Speedway. I’m not a NASCAR fan, and had never been to a race, but I did enjoy the experience. It was exciting, feeling the rumble of the engines as the cars flew past the grandstand. Several things made an impact on me that day:

  • The cheapness of the parking (not just all the mud, but the inflatable doll swinging from a flag pole that helped us find our car at the end of the day)
  • The number of RVs in the infield (wow, lots of money there . . .)
  • Serious tailgating that made the Mizzou football games look like amateur hour (folks set up for days!)
  • Everyone walking around with earphones on, listening to scanners (note to self: this’d be a great place to have a truly private conversation, because nobody could possibly overhear)
  • Waving at the drivers as they passed the grandstand the first time

What have you done that was a new experience? What did you take away from the experience?

  1. At 45 years old I went to an art museum for the very first time. We went to the Nelson Art Museum in Kansas City. I saw pieces of art I have only seen in pictures. I saw Monet’s Water Lilies, Picasso, Kandinsky and others. I have to admit, some of the pieces of art I just didn’t “get”, but it was still an amazing day. I felt so cultured.

  2. Fun! I really want to go there some day! I don’t get a lot of what passes as art these days either, but some of it is amazing.
