This past weekend at Texas Motor Speedway didn’t just bring race fans some awesome NASCAR racing. Race fans also experienced some mind-blowing fun. Starting off a great weekend on Thursday was Chevy Fan Day, where fans were able to watch two Nationwide Series practices and one Sprint Cup Series practice for FREE! Texas Motor Speedway also gave away hundreds of free Chevrolet “hot laps” with Team Chevy Sprint Cup Series drivers Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Jeff Burton, Ryan Newman and Juan Pablo Montoya! I spoke to one guy after he had just finished a “hot lap” with Burton and nothing could have wiped that grin off his face! Definitely an experience he will never forget!
Then on Saturday, prior to the Samsung Mobile 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, was the “No Limits” Garage Party presented by WinStar World Casino. What a blast that was! I was lucky enough to spend my whole afternoon at the Garage Party! Such a rough life I have! Along with all you race fans, I was able to watch two awesome performances by Le Freak, which never seemed to stop groovin’ up there on stage! They were hilarious! When Le Freak wasn’t stealing the show, the “Dirty Derby” Roller Derby was quite a hit. Those girls are tough! Couldn’t tell you how many times they crashed to the ground and got right back up again! The amazing spray paint artist attracted quite a crowd as he wowed everyone with his talented and unique artwork. I’ve never seen anything quite like it! Fans patiently stood in line to get autographs from and take pictures with “The Great American Sweethearts!” Who wouldn’t stand in line to meet these beautiful and down-to-earth ambassadors for Texas Motor Speedway? The fun continued as fans made their own personalized picture flip books, tried out the bungee trampoline, showed off their new “No Limits” temporary tattoos, and watched the “No Limits” logo be drawn from start to finish WITH CHALK! Then out of nowhere came guys walking on stilts, struttin’ their way through the crowd with big hair and the infamous ‘70s attire! Not to mention that there were numerous appearances by Sprint Cup Series stars like Jimmie Johnson, Denny Hamlin, Joey Logano, Brian Vickers, Michael Waltrip and many more! There was never a dull moment during the “No Limits” Garage Party presented by WinStar World Casino, that’s for sure! I know I had a great time and based on the smiles I saw on all the race fans’ faces, I’m pretty positive they had a good time too!
The entertainment didn’t stop there! After the “No Limits” Garage Party presented by WinStar World Casino was over, all race fans had the opportunity to see 3 Doors Down perform live on the frontstretch! They put on a great show and got everyone even more pumped up for the Samsung Mobile 500 race! What a weekend! If you missed out this time, you will have another chance to experience all the fun in the November during the AAA Texas 500 Weekend, Nov. 3-6. When it comes to pre-race activities, you definitely don’t want to pass up a party like the “No Limits” Garage Party presented by WinStar World Casino!
