Resort Livin'

From the outside, most people see the NASCAR life as glamorous. And sometimes it can be. But for the most part it consists of long days at the race track, a ton of traveling, most nights spent at hotels, and a lot of hard work. But for those of us who choose to work in the sport - we love it. Weekends like this one make it even better, though. We are staying at Split Rock Resort on Lake Harmony, which is only 7 miles from Pocono Raceway. Amid the scenery and wildlife, you almost forget how close you are to the track. You can see why this is such a popular honeymoon destination. There are deer everywhere - and you have to be careful driving down the windy roads not to hit one! Two people from the team have even seen a bear cub.

Today when the Cup garage closes at 2:00 pm, the team will get to take advantage of a rare free afternoon and enjoy the outdoors. Of course the fact that both Red Bull cars are in tomorrow's race makes it all the more enjoyable!

Wow! Picture is simple amazing. It would be great to be sitting on the beach with a drink in my hand(it's gonna be another hot one in Alabama today).

Hopefully the boys hit on something in Happy Hour. 2nd practice didn't look too hot.

Good luck to both teams and enjoy the outdoors.

Remember, sunday is all about durration. Today, they were probably just feeling out the tires that they have, and making a few adjustments. The cars have to make it to the end to take the checkers. Practice isn't always about being the fastest.
