Kansas Speedway / NASCAR - good times

Had a great time at the Kansas Speedway this past weekend for the STP 400 race - nice facility and very nice area oveall with plenty of shopping and places to eat. It was our first NASCAR event and the crowd - was fun and 'interesting ' LOL - they loved to party and the racing action.

Stayed at the Comfort Suites in Olathe - not convenient to the track but since I made a last minute reservation it was one place we could find with a room available. Nice , clean place, convenient to I-35.

We ate at Oklahoma Joe's BBQ across the parking lot and that was an added plus - great BBQ - best I have had in KC actually.

Visited the Ameristar Casino Saturday night - this facility was quite a bit larger and nicer than the Ameristar 'boat ' up in Council Bluffs, IA near Omaha - it very nice, had a lot of food choices and was not as smokey as the small places. We had a good time there and we both went home with winnings compliments of Ameristar.

Hey there, we were there too. We stayed at the LaQuinta in Olathe. We had enough points for a free room so we loved it.

This was our second time at the Kansas race. We were there in October also. Thought we left our Texas weather at home but IT WAS A HOT ONE!!!!! Thanks Kansas Speedway for turning on the mister system. I don't think we would have made it. I bet the track sold a record number of tank tops & bandanas to wet down.

Thanks to our icy weather in February, we only made it to the Sunday race because I had to make up a school day on Saturday. I didn't feel bad that we lost the money on our tickets for Saturday because my husband found a guy from Big Brothers Organization to send the Saturday tickets to so a lucky little brother got to go.

Get that casino open, Kansas and think about maybe a night race next June.

Go Kasey & Dale Jr!!!!!!!!!

We were there too. So hoped Dale Jr would win. I think they really want a night race, it is up to NASCAR to give it to them though. Very hot, but I thought we had a good crowd.
