Up Early at the Track

Heading out early in the predawn hours is something I’ve been accustom to for many years. Often times I am greeted with solitude, but a racetrack is buzzing with activity in the early am. I walked through the parking lot seeing other souls going about their jobs, directing cars, herding attendees, preparing food carts and heading in for early meetings about the day’s events. After making a semi circle around the track I crossed the highway and ascended one of the hills that enclose part of Bristol Motor Speedway. Shortly thereafter the Sun peaked out from the opposing hill and spread its light onto the arena.
