TALLADEGA, Ala. -- This weekend I had the privilege to view Talladega, with its storied past and colorful personalities, through virgin eyes.
But first I should tell you that I was warned, cautioned to "stay out of the infield, don't go out past dark and watch out for those 'Dega fans."
Well if any of you know me personally, you could probably guess I met the admonition with defiance and set out to form my own opinion of the company this track keeps.
Admittedly, I'm a bit defensive of the NASCAR fan base, because their avidity and love of the sport shows no limit and continues to impress me. That said, I sought to disprove the stereotypes and dispel the bad rap 'Dega fans have acquired over the years.

Things are pretty tame in the infield at MIS these days but I would consider it a PG-13 rated area.
I could tell you a story about an exercise bike modified “for ladies only” but I won’t.
LOL, that’s ok, it’ll let my imagination run..:)
I went to a NASCAR race recently. The caviar served was just atrocious and the champagne not properly chilled.
Does that purty Raygan thing clean windows?.. as long as she can pull weeds, that’s OK. :-)

I could tell you about a monkey and a helicopter and a bevy of beautiful young ladies from Mississippi, but my wife would leave me and shoot my dogs too! But, it was one hell of a time to be in Talladega and we all had a blast.
