Focus is the ability to believe in your goal even as your path twists and turns.

I has no pics, but it was freakin awesome.

We only went 155 MPH and turned 1:06 lap times at Talledega, but it's a lot different than riding that fast.

Also, you have to turn right to go straight, and the turns are so banked that you don't even have to turn the wheel. In fact, they are so banked that you have to be going at least 70mph around them or you will "fall off" the track.

I am sure it is different with a additional 40-45 mph. But at least yuo can say you saw 155! Not everyone can say that. I have hit that on track on my bike but that's serious fast for a car!

Glad you had a good time.

Yeah, I've always thought that with the offset tire sizes btw left and right, those things might be a bitch to keep them going straight on the straights.

I live near Lowe's Motor Speedway here and have done this and had a blast.
