Meeeeeeeee!!! Lol, same situation..I absolutely refused to go until my FH (boyfriend at the time) made me go…and now I’m hooked!

This is going to sound like I’m a raging hillybilly but I don’t care…I named my dog after my favorite driver, Carly (Carl Edwards). I also bought my FH tickets to the daytona 500 last year for Christmas. Oh and I won a trip to Las Vegas last year to go to the awards banquet.

I uploaded some pics of us at daytona and of me and carl 🙂

I don’t know that I’d call myself a “NASCAR girl” but I do enjoy watching on occasion and DH never really watched NASCAR before meeting me.  I grew up in Indiana and my parents had tickets to the Brickyard 400 every year (and the Indy 500 for that matter).  DH and I are going to the AAA Texas 500 in Fort Worth this November though!!

I grew up by the Charlotte Motor Speedway and to school with a bunch of race car drivers kids. When Dale Earnhart died, our school was closed for 3 days! I don’t really follow racing, but I LOVE going to races. They are so much fun! It is the best people watching ever… and who doesn’t love a sporting event where you can BYOB!?

My DH is into racing sports, and he used to watch NASCAR every weekend.  He encouraged me to pick a car so that I’d be more into watching.  I watched a race, and ignored everything but how they were driving.  I decided I really like the 99 car.  He didn’t win that race, but he also didn’t drive like a jerk.  So yes, to this day, my driver is Carl Edwards.  Still love him and think he’s a class act.  It’s a little frustrating sometimes because he is VERY consistent.  But very consistently second or third, or in the top five.  He’s not going to win the championship, but he’s always in the race.

Lately though we’ve strayed from NASCAR into F1.  NASCAR actually seems boring compared to F1!  And I’ve developed a few favorites there too.

I think more women would really like racing sports if they understood that it’s not just a person driving in circles for hours.  There is actually strategy and skill involved.  It’s just more subtle than, say, football.

I love me some Jimmie Johnson!  My FI’s bachelor party is at the Dover race this Sunday!  He doesn’t know that 11 of his best guy friends are taking him!
