Snake in the Dirt
At Phoenix International Raceway, it’s hot as hell with dry desert all around. There’s a mountain that overlooks turns 3 and 4 where fans can go to watch the race and of course, have a few brews. Where there’s Phoenix desert – there’s Phoenix snakes – rattle snakes at that. Before each Cup race the track has people come in and remove all of the snakes from the hills. When the race weekend ends, the snakes are returned back to the hill. Consider it a weekend getaway for the snakes. We went looking and listening for some rattlers they missed, but couldn’t find any.
