Just so I would be sure to go through with it, I booked a motel room just inside the Illinois line for Friday night. I finally plan to hit the Horseshoe Hammond after several previous weekends have had familial obligations. Although I thought I might’ve gone this weekend, I ended up going up to the Whitecaps game Friday night, spent the night in Kentwood, and did some shopping Saturday. I then came down separately so I could spend the rest of Saturday with my brother at a dead Strike Zone before he was driven down toward Indy tonight.
Carl Edwards won at Michigan today, and my friends who went will definitely have to regale me in their experiences at the track. I’m also looking forward to knowing how Roxanne (a big Kyle Busch fan) took the result. :p One of these years, I’m going to have to get to a race.
