First day on the flats, pretty amazing, and a zillion people.
There are four tracks on the flats, two for the faster cars and the other two for some of the slower cars and the motorcycles. The longest track is eight miles long. Spectators and racers line the tracks on the one side.
We met up with some of our contacts, saw some neat cars, but only lasted in the heat, about 110 today, until about 2:30, so we went back to the hotel to cool off and jump in the pool. We’ll go eat some dinner and then have to go do some laundry.
Tomorrow morning, if we can show up at 6:00am, we might be able to get on the car chase crews and help bring the cars back after the run. I just have to get the three lazy kids up early enough.
