Trip Rewind Arizona 2002 : Phoenix International Raceway, Avondale Arizona

Visiting Phoenix International Raceway
the entry to Phoenix International Raceway

I find it ironic that Phoenix International Raceway is called Phoenix when it is actually located in Avondale Arizona but whatever we will let them call it whatever they want :-).

I still remember vividly walking up to the NASCAR track for the first time. My heart was filled with excitement as I had spent most of my Saturday nights or Sunday afternoons watching races since I was 16 years old and now I was going to watch a race live!

I set my alarm for 6:30am. Waking up this early in Vegas seemed unnatural. Not that people are up at 6:30am, but most of those people had yet to go to bed from the night before. I had gone to bed early the day before as I had an important task for the day. I had purchased myself a 3-lap ride along in a NASCAR stock car at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
