NASCAR Road America - Elkhart Lake WI - Live Video

Now, let's be honest.  I've been to a lot of NASCAR races, a LOT.

I've begged, borrowed, bribed, impersonated, conned, stuffed a SunTimes contest w/3X5 entries, known someone, known someone who knows someone, lied, snuck into, and straight up PAID for access like we got this w/e.

Sargento 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series @ Road America, Elkhart Lake, WI
4.048M/14-Turn Multi-Elevation Road Course in Central WI.

A Half-Price $40 Ticket (from Menards) got us free parking, gen adm (most good seats open), Paddock and Pit Access before the race, Driver Paddock Access, and no traffic.

Never been to a Road Course Race.  This was Awesome.  We tagged Great Seats on a hot corner and watched half the race on Big Screen on the Track.

Literally close enough to kick dust up at us.  No Traffic!  Easy In/Out.  Unbelieveable.

And, half the track is in the freakin Woods.

Walking up to see intros, I literally almost tripped over Chip Ganassi, and Scott Pruett getting out of his LeMans car, chillin', He just won the prior race!

Oh, and Danica.  Yes, Danica drove her fuckin ass off and got punted late in the race by some Canadian Prick (Villaneuve).
The winds were calm, so I prayed for her hair to be down as she got into the pickup during intros.....
Pardon Me, I have to change religions I think.............................

NASCAR Northwoods Style!
