NASCAR

I had the opportunity to attend my first NASCAR race over the weekend in Martinsville, Virginia. It was an entirely new cultural experience for someone who has lived in California their entire life. The fields surrounding the speedway become home to thousands of NASCAR fans for two days leading up to the event and they create the biggest tailgate of any sporting event. The prayer at the start of the event led by raceway ministries was also another culture shock, and once the race started these were some of rowdiest fans I've ever seen at any sporting event.
