Four hours and two flights later, I am in Charlotte, North Carolina. I walked out of the airport to find a chill in air. Weather far from what I’ve gotten use to in Orlando, Florida.
I had to quickly grab a taxi. I was already late for the National Motor Sports Press Association Awards Ceremony. That’s where I spent my evening, hearing stories from those who have been in the NASCAR media for years.
This morning I woke up and got ready for the Media Tour.
I have no idea what to expect. I have never been to a media tour, much less, a NASCAR media tour.
So far this morning has been pretty easy. I had breakfast, checked-in for the week and got a schedule of events.
First up, I’ll have to go to this rookie meeting at 10:30AM. Then I’ll be headed to a luncheon where some announcements will be made. What they’ll be about. I have no idea!
Yes…no idea. That seems to be my motto for this trip! We will both be discovering what this journey is about together.
Later in the day, I’m looking at another dinner award ceremony. This one is the Catlin Media Awards, and tonight, a Dale Jr. and Richard Petty Announcement.
Now, don’t think I’m going to leave you hanging! Check back, because I’ll be giving you the latest updates throughout the day!
Now, if that’s not good enough for you, and you’re thinking, “I can’t wait that long! I need those updates now!” You can also follow me on twitter @LizCupScene
