Although Sunday was a beautiful day, and I didn’t drive all the way out to Colorado to watch TV, it was also a race car fan’s dream of having three marquee races from three premier venues on the same day, with all three enjoying perfect weather. So I stayed in all day (well, I did put three miles on the car to go out and get a pizza) and watched the Formula 1 Grand Prix from Monaco in the morning (congratulations to Australian Daniel Ricciardo on his victory), the Indy 500 mid-day (congrats to Will Power on finally winning “the big one”), and of course NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600, their longest race, in the evening (and kudos to Kyle Busch for his dominating victory). Busch now has the distinction of being the only driver to have won a points-paying race at every Cup Series track he has competed on.
This was where I spent the day – in the comfort of my Airbnb (sorry for the poor quality pictures – it was 642 AM and there wasn’t much light coming in the windows yet.) My suite of rooms was in the basement of a home in Grand Junction, CO. I stayed with the same people last year and of the 130+ Airbnb’s I have stayed in over 4 years, this is my favorite. It’s like being in a Marriott… comfy furniture, king size bed, big screen TV with cable channels and I could even do laundry (so you see, I did do something productive!).
