I felt pretty lucky when my neighbor Ron invited me out to Texas Motor Speedway to watch the Craftsman Trucks race in the Sam’s Town 400. We got there early to see the IRL cars qualify. (I got to see Danika run a few laps)
One of the historic events that occurred during this race was Kyle Busch’s attempt to race all 3 NASCAR events in 3 different locations. He flew between Texas, Nashville, and New York to get his qualifications and racing done, covering something like 5000 miles in the air and 1000 miles on the track in a few days.
