RACE TRACK REPORT CARD - THUNDER VALLEY 
Hello Race Fans.  As many of you know, Bubbate & Both Bubbas have been to many tracks that run NASCAR races.  We decided to put out a report card.  We hope this will help fans when they are deciding on what race track to visit.  We are grading the tracks on what is important to us & the hundreds of fans we talked to at each track.  We also have additional notes at the end of each track’s grading.

The grades are in the following order: 
Jimmy, Frankie then Jo Ann with an average at the end.

RATED BETWEEN 0 & 10.  0 BEING THE WORST - 10 BEING THE BEST.

NOTES:
     
Jimmy: Loved watching the whole field at the same time.

Frankie: This is an exciting track to watch a race.  Every seat seems to be good – but getting to your seat after walking up & down the hills can be a task.  There’s a lot of bumping & hitting but sometimes too many wrecks & cautions.

Jo Ann:  Ditto the above.  COMPLAINT: Bathrooms had only 9 stalls and 2 sinks closest to our high dollar seats.  Not important to Both Bubbas BUT since Bruton said that his tracks have more toilets than some track’s have seating, I expected more.  Beware the old saying…”how the crow flies” is true here.  A campground might be only .5 miles from track as the crow flies BUT as the fan walks it’s more like 5 miles. Wear real good hiking boots.
