Vacation Days 1 & 2

This is where it all started, we started watching a series called Madhouse which is about a local racetrack in Winston Salem, NC. When we started thinking about where we could go and what we could do on vacation we decided to go see one of the races. This is a local track that has been around for a long time, nothing fancy just racing. It was a lot of fun especially after watching the series and getting to know the drivers and all the drama about everyone. We left home on Saturday around 7:00 and go to the track around 6:00 pm, what a long drive!

This is one of the cars.
They didn't have too many wrecks.
This next set of pictures are backward, I couldn't move them around and didn't want to load them again it was taking too long. After the race on Saturday night we stayed at Richard Childress Winery and Sunday we did a tour and testing through the winery. It was a beautiful winery and the wine was wonderful. This is some of the barrels used during the process.
The grounds around the winery are gorgeous, just right of the picture they having an area with tables and a band set up for picnics and of course drinking wine.
The vineyards.
The beautiful sign with the vineyard in the background. If you are in the area and love wine you really should check this vineyard out.
