LINCOLN, ALABAMA - People say you can go to nearly any town in the world and find an Texas A&M graduate. That proved true Tuesday in Lincoln, Alabama, home to the Talladega Superspeedway.

One of the bigger parts of the #AOroadtrip is social media. Dallas Shipp, with Aggieland Outfitters, and I tweet and post to Facebook along the way. Our goal is to virtually take you along on the trip. Kylie Easterling, an Aggie, was following the road trip online. She reached out and asked if we wanted to stop by her office. It happened to be one of the most well-known race tracks in the country.

Easterling, who got her undergrad from A&M in 2011 and a master's the next year, runs social media for the raceway. She invited us to swing by on our way to Atlanta and take a lap in the RV.

From West Texas originally, Easterling said she made the transition to Alabama pretty easily. She's especially enjoyed watching the Aggies transition to the Southeastern Conference. Her perspective is a unique one. She's only 90 minutes the University of Alabama.

After a few pictures and getting to walk through victory plaza, we loaded up the RV and hit the road.
