I'll be there for a while in the afternoon/evening.

@slims_88 - I assume you have to work, right?

Yeah, what time you leaving?

eta: @coltgunner works out at the Speedway. I've met up with him both times I've gone out there. He'll take you up to security and let you get an air-conditioned view of the track. Even got to go up to the spotters stand.

He's a good dude.

Green flag for the truck race is 7:30. You're gonna spend a day at the racetrack, and then skip the race????

I should have said until at least 7 or so - not sure if I'm going to stick around a whole lot longer than that. Especially if I'm not drinking beer watching the fast moving circle

At least stick around for the first stage. Truck races only last a couple hours tops.

I always forget to get ahold of Coltgunner ahead of time and meet up with him.

Shoot me an IM if you have some free time tomorrow out there.

I'm fairly certain I'll have some free time.

You guys have fun out there today!

I'm having a good time, but I need more beer. I'm sure no one would mind if I had a tall boy. I haven't seen any PBR though, which is bullshit.

I got burnt out on that shit in high school.

We shut down early due to weather. I got soaked coming in, and I got wet leaving.

They were asking people to leave the grandstands, and some vendor tents were moving pretty good. Then someone with the speedway came and asked us to take our tent down, which we were in the process of doing anyways.

All the radar we could find showed a nasty storm coming towards Newton, so most people didn't think the race would go on, so I decided to take off.

And I slowed way down on 80 on the drive back home, because of wind first, and then rain. Most cars were going about 40 at one point.

Slims, I'll go out there some time to a race - it looked like fun.

It's pretty cool. I got within probably 15 feet of Kyle Petty. He was on the other side of some tinted glass, but I could still see him, and the booth they were broadcasting from!

Hindsight, I should have taken a selfie in front of the tinted out glass, even though you wouldn't have been able to see shit. I'd have known he was in the pic.

I know it short notice, But if anyone is interested in going to the NTT Indy car race tomorrow,
I was given 4 tickets today, They are in section 105 row 10 for tomorrow nights race. I have prior obligations and can't use them.

They are free to anyone that wants to them. I am in the DSM area and can meet in the DSM area
to hand off the tix if anyone can use them.

If vrmn8r was coming in from Omaha, I'd take you up on it, but we decided it's too fucking hot and neither of us felt like sitting out in this weather.
Link Posted: 7/20/2019 5:18:16 PM EDT
Yeah this heat doesn't help. O well. I figured I would ask hate for em to go to waste if someone could have used em.
Link Posted: 7/20/2019 6:56:58 PM EDT
With the rain, it's going to end up being a late race if they end up running tonight. I bet they postpone until tomorrow.
