Once we got to there, we easily parked and hopped on a shuttle bus that took us right to the stadium. After a quick bag check, the security took precise measurements of our cooler and declared that we had to break off our lid for it to be allowed inside. Who makes these rules? We obliged and busted off the lid and headed to our seats.
The intensity of the race is something I cannot fathom. The pressure to perform and race for 200 laps is truly amazing. There were a record number of leader changes which made for an exciting finish and unfortunately the race finished on a caution.
I was having the time of my life with my friend Sofia. No glass? No problem. In a sea of large format American beer, my mini pink cans were killing the situation. Can you believe that the race allows you to bring in your own food and drinks? Three cheers for that.
