We left after work on Friday and made a stop in Durham for dinner. We went to a local Brewery known as Bull City Brewery (http://www.bullcityburgerandbrewery.com/Bull_City_Burger_and_Brewery/Home.html).
We continued on our way to Richmond and got to our campsite around 10pm. We were greeted by our friends and enjoyed talking and beverages before hitting the sack.
The next day entailed lots of tailgating and perusing free gifts before the big race. Now this was my first Nascar race and I can say that it was quite entertaining. I really did like how everyone got really into the race and I was mesmerized watching the pit crews do their work. Our group made a friendly bet on who would win and the boyfriend won with his pick of Brad Keselowski.
The next morning we left very early to drive the 1.5 hours home to see my family and friends. We spent Sunday there, which was much needed and wonderful to spend time with everyone. On Monday we started our long trek back to Greenville.
Another successful weekend in the books.
