Nascar Sprint Series Watkins Glen

We took these pictures of the the Nascar Sprint Series Race in Watkins Glen New York. The day of the race the weather was good initially. We never had been to a  Nascar race before so we weren't sure on what to expect. Once we found our seats we then took a walk around the inside track where all the action is. We soon found out its a big party with plenty of beer and music with even some free give aways like Helluva Good Cheese & Nachos and Monster Energy drinks. Also there were plenty of aromas in the air - a combination of burning rubber and fried foods. While we we waiting for the race to start with anticipation ominous clouds were building. After announcing all of the drivers on stage they finally started their engines and lapped the track and were ready to receive the green flag to race. .Just then the skies opened up with a ferocious lighting and thunder storm. The race was stopped and a few hours later it was called cancelled and rescheduled for the following day. We returned the next day and took in all the sites and the race for a second time. Below right is a picture of a group of "Said Heads", fans of driver Boris Said, who all wear matching shirts and big, bushy wigs. It was an experience.
