Sunday 160...I'm heading to the nascar race today!

A colorful crowd
the scenery a blur of color and noise
the speeds conquering well over 100
engines roaring, wall hugging
a sudden blown tire
isn't it "the pits"

**this is a sunday 160. How much can you say in 160 characters.  To learn more or take the challenge, visit Monkey Man from "Challenges I love"


  1. oh caty, your 160 is fantastic! i especially love the ending, very nice word play!! take care and be careful! my son went to a nascar race a few years back and he said that at the race's end, everyone in the stands was covered with tiny peices of shredded rubber from the races tires...left me with a such a funny picture!

  2. I started to race through this 160 but the yellow caution flag came out so I slowed down and enjoyed the ride. Great 160. Have a terrific Memorial Day.

  3. Excellent word picture! As I write this, my two sons and two friends are in Indianapolis sitting in the stands, waiting for the flags to drop. They drive out every year for this "guy pilgrimage" - no wives allowed (not that they'd want to go!).

  4. I went to Charlotte last year. I am about 3 hours away. Have fun!

  5. woohoo! have fun...hope you dont get stuck next to the over weight guy, without a shirt, sloshing his beer...just take an umbrella...smiles. i think he sat next to me at charlotte...

  6. Wow, look how wobbly the tread mark left behind.

    Fun 160.

  7. I've never been to such a race, but it sounds exciting. Neat 160.


  8. what exciting 160.
    race your way to a magical bay...
    Happy Happy Sunday!
