I flew my second Nascar Nationwide Race last night, the Royal Purple 200, in Darlington, South Carolina. A great night for racing under the lights at the track they say is, "The Track Too Tough to Tame." Its been really hot down here with highs during the day into the 90's, and it stayed warm up in the gondola all night. With a lack of air conditioning, we had the windows all open trying to get as much air flow as we could up there. Over all though it was a good show despite the heat.
I was able to take a few pictures and shoot some short videos while I was up there. You may notice the egg like shape of the track which makes it one of the more unique tracks on the Nascar schedule.
Tonight is our last Nascar race for a while as we begin covering baseball. Next stop on the tour, New York City.
