Weekend Recap: VIR (Virginia International Raceway) and Clarksville, VA

This weekend we traveled to VIR (Virginia International Raceway) to watch the MotoAmerica Races.

It’s about a 3 and a half hour drive from our house.  It is a beautiful drive with lots of farms and limited cell phone service…or as I like to call it “mobile stress”.

On our way we stopped at Lover’s Leap just before dark and I took a few pictures.  They really don’t do it justice.


Lover’s Leap at dusk.


This kid was so ready for bed…


Until he saw me taking pictures!


Then I started getting some good funny faces from him!


Quick family selfie while we all were snacking before the race.


He’s such a ham!


He loved running around.  VIR is definitely a great, family friendly track.


Clarksville, VA – Old buildings downtown.


You can see the lake (Kerr Reservoir “Buggs Island”) from downtown.  Jason comes down here a few times a year to fish but I had never been.


I can’t wait to go back to shop.  I found some really good deals in an antique shop and I plan on going back when I can take our covered tailer to bring everything home.  I know if I find deals like I did this weekend I’ll need it!


Really enjoyed watching Roger Hayden get 3rd in the first race and 2nd in the last race.



He didn’t even make it off the VIR grounds before he was out!loversleapday

Lover’s Leap during the day.  I took this on our way home.  The view is spectacular.

We didn’t get home until probably around 11pm and I had somethings to do to get ready for this week.  I was able to get in bed around 12:30am so I feel okay today, probably better than I should.

It was a great trip and I can’t wait to do it again.
