Kyle Busch, 23, won the Spring Cup LifeLock 400 in a Toyota Camry this weekend, but NASCAR is just as much about fans kicking back with beers on lounge chairs as it is about cars ripping around to earn championship titles.
This gallery highlights some of the NASCAR action from the viewpoint of spectators. Images of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series LifeLock.com 400 auto race, which was held this weekend at the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill, are also featured in this article, offering a good taste of the weather that caused the July 10 race to be postponed. Another image shows the Office Depot Ford which was autographed by employees from around the world.
