Couldn't pass through Texas without a visit to Texas Motor Speedway. Another hot, sticky day - and OMG, the traffic around Dallas/Ft. Worth - YIKES! Anyway easily found the track entrance and had a super time. Tony Stewart was hosting his annual special "Smoke Show" which hosts folks who pay an obscene amount of money to take to the track in a competitive race car - complete with instruction from Tony's crew and many other activities (this as told to us by parents of one such participant).

We had a wonderful tour - mostly to ourselves so lots of time for Q&A and of course the traditional van-on-the-track experience. Our host/guide was fab!

Took a picture of the Earnhart goat "Lil' Dale"which is in the lobby of the Speedway Club. A good story which can be Googled ---

Need to get further west, so heading for Abilene ---
