Today was qualifying day, so we got up somewhat early (5:45 or so) and headed down to the track. We got ourselves some nice seats up in turn one (section E penthouse). I started taking a couple of pictures of the track when one of the ushers asked me if I wanted to go up to the roof and take some pics from there. Can't pass up a chance like that! So, he removed the "Do Not Cross" rope and we climbed the ladder up to the roof of the grandstands where the spotters stand. The view from up their was spectacular!! I'll post some pictures later, though they really don't do the view justice.
After qualifying, we walked around the infield for a while and checked out the new Chevy cars and trucks. After that, we came back to the hotel for some relaxation and swimming. Tonight, we'll probably just eat somewhere here in Crawfordsville, and then hang out and relax. Tomorrow will be a busy day.
