So, after leaving Alexander City we headed down to Montgomery Raceway to catch some drag racing before going up to Memphis. It was a great day and a lot of cool cars
After our two days in Memphis we drove east to Nashville where we spent another two days drinking beers at Broadway, listening to great music and did some more touristy things like visiting the Ryman Auditorium.
We got a tip from someone that we should visit Floyd Garret’s Musclecar Museum in Sevierville, TN as it was pretty much on our route inbetween Nashville and Martinsville, VA (where we headed next for Nascar). The museum had a shitload of cool cars!
After buying tickets on Saturday, we went down to Greensboro, North Carolina to find a place to stay before Sunday. The motel prices up in Martinsville were crazy so we figured we rather drove south for an hour instead of paying $225 at Econolodge.
Got up early on Sunday and had a look outside the window and the rain was pouring down and the forecast said that it was a 50% chance of rain during the day. We got in the car, drove up To Martinsville and the rain got even worse the closer we got to Martinsville. Anyway, we found a place to park the car and hoped for the best. By noon, the sky started clearing up and it looked that we’d witness a live NASCAR race anyway!
Having nothing like this in Europe, we were pretty blown away by watching the race along with 50 000 other screaming fans!
When we got up this morning, we were facing a 6-hour drive in serious bad weather. By late afternoon after a loooong drive (with a lot of accidents along the way), we finally made it to McDonough, Georgia. It was time to pick up the order at Summit Racing!
