And now for those most famous words in motorsports... Drivers! Start... Your... Engines!!
Beasley’s latest adventure took us to Texas Motor Speedway to watch our first NASCAR race, the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300!
After wandering around the merchandise trailers and winning several free prizes along the way, we stepped through the gates and went in search of our seats. Donning our ear protection, which included a small pair for Beasley, we watched at the NASCAR Cup drivers posted qualifying laps around the track for their race the next day. It was quite exciting! And loud! Of course, the best part of all was Beasley seeing her favorite drivers, Joey Logano and Brad Keslowski, zooming around the track!
Before we knew it, the race began and things really got exciting! Restarts, spin-outs, crashes, lead-changes… the list goes on and on. Beasley cheered along with the rest of us each time her favorite Xfinity driver, Erik Jones, led the restart!
During the race, Beasley munched on a giant wrap and mini bag of potato chips purchased from Buc-ee’s before the race! Simply put, it was delicious!
Doesn’t she look cute in her mini earmuffs? They were made using the caps off two bottles of body wash and a 3-D printed band.
With a great view of the end of Pit Road, between the Start/Finish line and Turn 1, Beasley saw all of the exciting action that comes with pit stops during the race. Even better, was the enormous screen called Big Hoss which showed fans what was happening around the track.
Needless to say, one of the best parts of the night was when Erik Jones won the race -Hooray! There were even fireworks to celebrate the big win!
One last photo before leaving the track – Beasley holding her ear muffs on the Texas Motor Speedway sign. What a great race!
