A NASCAR fan’s first race experience can be exciting, crazy, and maybe a little scary. But it will certainly be something they will never forget. We’ve been asked periodically by first time race goers to offer advice on what to do, what to see, what not to do, etc. when they attend their first big time NASCAR event. Both myself and Journo were once first time race fans, and we always try and give some tips.
I just recently had a reader email and ask for some advice on attending her first race. She had tickets for the Auto Club 500 weekend at California. I responded with a few paragraphs about what I thought she should do, see, and be prepared for. After emailing back and forth a little bit, and seeing her great race photos, I thought it might be a good idea to run a post where you (our readers) could offer up some advice to first time race attendees.
So here is what I’m thinking. If you’ve been to a Cup, Nationwide, or Truck race we will call you an expert. Using the comments section below, let us know a tip or two that you would give to somebody attending their first race. It can be anything from where to sit and what to eat, to where to buy tickets and what to see while at the track. Any little piece of advice that you think would benefit that first timer.
Then, when we get some responses, I’ll put this post in the “Insider Favorites” box over to the right. That way, any folks that drop by the site will easily be able to find advice to aid in their race experience from you, the experts.
So, whatcha got?
