Thread: Are ready for some racing?

    Are ready for some racing?

    My oldest son and I needed a father/son outing. He's volunteered to help me paint my home this I asked him (He's a major NASCAR fan). "If you could attend a race, which track would you like to go and watch a race?" He mentioned 2 tracks. So, I contacted a tour company that specializes in NASCAR race trips.

    One week from today.............we fly to Knoxville, TN and on 3/17 and 3/18 we'll take a tour bus to Bristol for the Nationwide and Sprint Cup series races.

    He's jacked and I'm looking forward to it.

    Don...would you believe this deaf old man bought some Bose QC-15 noise canceling headphones? I can wear them on the airlines.....they fit over the soundprocessor for my cochlear implant and over my HA on the other ear...they cancel the jet engine noise and I can still hear the overhead speaker announcements.....I will wear them at Bristol....for the noise canceling capabilities.

    And if things get really loud, I'll just take off the sound processor and the hearing aid...and this deaf guy won't hear a all. I do it every night when I go to bed.....LOL.

    I'll help paint, I'll help paint, I'll help paint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My son will be at one soon, he is coordinating the fly over. He would rather do the coordinating, he gets to stay for the race, the ones flying have to fly back to the base. He called me once fro Jeff Gordon's pit and held up the phone so I could hear what it sounds like.
