Lets begin with intimacy. Is that word really being used in NASCAR racing blog? When we pulled into the speedway at Talladega I was amazed at how far away we had to park. I bet we parked close to two miles away from the track. Now don't get me wrong, the officials at Talladega should be complimented for the organization of their taxi services (tractors that pull trailors with comfortable seating). We parked and we walked probably 250 feet and got onto one of the trailors (sorry I do not have a better word for it) and we were at the speedway in a matter of minutes. Each time at Atlanta we have parked within a quarter of a mile to a half a mile away. It should also be noted that we arrived at each speedway approximately three hours before the race.
