Long Time Fan

I have been a fan of NASCAR for nearly 20 years.  I've got to admit, I enjoyed it much better in the '90s.  Esp., since my favorite drivers are either racing part-time/retired (Geoff Bodine, Harry Gant.)  I do still pull for Mark Martin.  I find it pretty neat that he now drives the #5!  None of the newer/up-and-coming drivers have really caught my eye.  I've been to a few races, all of them at Rockingham (boy, do I miss that track!)  And, I've met a few drivers:  Geoff Bodine (twice), Brett Bodine, Harry Gant, and Ricky Rudd.  Racing certainly has changed over the years, but, my love for the sport is still strong!

My son LOVES to watch NASCAR, I think it's because of the Disney/Pixar movie Cars....and Talledega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby...but, I don't let him watch that one anymore, he's starting to quote movies. He will watch NASCAR races all day if I let him. He tries to get me to watch with him, but I just can't get into it. The only sport I can watch on TV is football.
