Team FSL at the Auto Club 500

Team FSL was able to obtain all access passes to the NASCAR Auto Club 500 yesterday.  This was my first NASCAR event and it was pretty cool to be able to walk the pit row, and meet a bunch of the drivers/crew.  Below is the line up in pit row prior to the race.

We watched the driver introductions from the track.  Below is when Jimmy Johnson came out. 
All access means you get to meet the Auto Club Speedway girls as well.

There was some light rain that caused a few cautions during the race.  There was not a single crash, which I guess is disappointing.  We watched the last part of the race from front row in turn 1.  The race was basically decided by a late pit stop where Matt Kenseth Picked up 3 positions and took the lead coming out of the pits.  We had a great view of the pit stop exit where we were sitting.  Below are the cars buzzing around with about 20 laps to go.

If you turned your head quick enough, this was the view as the exited turn 1.

We had a ton of fun while spreading the word about Fantasy NASCAR at Fantasy Sports Live.  If we can get some more all access passes we may make an east coast trip to Bristol this year.

Where is the FSL gear? It pays to advertise!

I bet if you walked around with a sharpie in your hand, someone would've asked for an autograph.
