The World of Outlaws Finals covers three days. The first day was qualifying and we were only there a couple of hours. Friday night we watched races and wandered around looking at the various vendors. It was the coldest of the three nights and I was freezing even through four layers of shirts under my jacket! Saturday the weather was better and we walked around the Pits before watching the races.
The food is expensive...$5 for a bottle of water, $6 for a cheeseburger, $4 for fries...and not very good, but it is part of the experience. Brown dirt is also part of the experience and I was sneezing it out for two days! So is the four abreast formation around the track part of the experience and the fire works as well. Most important is that we had fun!

While in Charlotte, we also made a visit to the Social Security Office and I changed my name! Several more places still to make the name change...driver's license, bank accounts, credit cards etc. but Social Security is the big one. Wonder how long it will take me to finally get used to my new name?
