What's up everyone...
Just got back from Los Angeles and I have to say that it was the best trip I have ever taken!

In the one week I was in SoCal I hit the Busch & Nextel Cup races at Fontana (my friend's mom had free tickets from her employer, who incidentally loves being close the the starting line...), and I must say the Cal Speedway is beautiful (Fontana leaves something to be desired)

I have to say tho' that Busch was cooler - In the last 2 laps Darryl Waltrip got manhandled by Biddle to win the race... Being my first NASCAR race I almost peed myself when the winner did 3 cookies and a walking brake stand for about a minute!!!! Needless to say I was like a little girl at NASCAR... PLUS! $3 closeout on all Cal Speedway gear... got 10 tshirts and 6 hats for $48!!!!!

I visited UCLA, USC, the Staples Center, downtown (of course), Long Beach (where my family is from), CalPoly, Santa Barbara, Pt. Mugu & Pt. Hueneme Naval bases (my friend is active USN), Hollywood, Bel-Air, Beverly Hills....you know the drill...

I have to say tho', the best parts were 1. Visitng Wesk Coast Customs... 2. Going to a Dodger game (vs. AZ Diamondbacks) - LA won 8-2 due in part to a grandslam from Mr. Ventura....
3. Hitting up the Santa Maria Antique Car Show, and 4. doing 85 MPH in bumper to bumber traffic down the 405!

Pictures will be posted soon for those interested...
Oh yeah, and I had to work today.... :(

Well Kevin, it's simply really....

you could listen to one v8 in your driveway and get all excited (as I do..)

or...you can listen to 30.

there is nothing better than NASCAR... experiencing the real thing is impossible to explain with words.

holy$hit! do i love nascar!
