We were all very excited to go last year. We went and hung out at the Pit Party and got plenty of pictures, autographs and free stuff. It was rainy off and on and there was a lot of walking around. By the time the race started, we were cold, wet and miserable. We still enjoyed it all, but we (the kids mainly) could only take so much and we didn't stay for the whole race. We left with about 30-40 minutes left in the race.
This year as the time grew nearer, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go. (not sure why) I guess I just didn't want to get rained out again. Hubby of course wanted to go and asked me to get tickets. I decided I'd go with him, but we'd leave the kids this time. So I found tickets and got us a hotel downtown. I was lucky enough to get hooked up with a nice suite at a nice price thanks to a cousin in law.
At least John got to get his picture taken with Travis Pastrana.
(Ok, so it was just a cardboard cutout...) That's ok, we have met him twice before. Bummed to not see the Nitro Circus Crew, but later John did run into Greg Godfrey.
We did get to meet these 2 cute guys.
