    we were highly disappointed due to the rain & thunderstorm’s .sorry to hear that people were injured & 1 passing away.we had spent $300.00 in tickets that included the pit pass to but was not offered the hot pass whatever that is.we wanted to be able to see the driver’s & talk with them but it wasn’t possible to do cuz we did not have the right pass.then when we were walking around from the pits to grandstand we asked to show tickets to prove we had pit pass when we had the orange wrist band on so that should of been self explainable to security.the grand stand seats weren’t right.we went up the c-level seating & some guy told us to move rudely.so it was a experience yes but do we want to do it again no way!!! all i wanted is to get a picture signed by bobby labonte & talk with him but it wasn’t possible.
