In the Pits...

Why were we in the pits?
Thanks to Farm American and Furniture Row Racing,
we were in the pits at Talladega Superspeedway!

We were their featured farm family for this week! (Read more about that here!)

This is us with our tour guide Charlie!

We got to hang around the #78 race hauler and the garage area before the race. We saw drivers, crew members, and team owners, and watched cars go through pre-race inspection.

Check out Clint Bowyer's #15! Roll Tide!

Even the crew had their houndstooth hats!

We got to stand on pit road before the race. Check out all those gauges and switches! No way would I be allowed to drive, haha.
 Here's Charlie on tire duty. He's checking air pressures.

We got to sit on the pit box during the race. The pit box is where the crew chief and other team members sit. There are tons of computers and tvs with race data on them.

Unfortunately, the #78's motor expired before lap 20. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted!
