Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!!

Boogity, Boogity, Boogity!!! Yeppers, this southern gal likes racing. Spent all afternoon in front of the TV watching the Daytona 500 while sewing hair on Lil' Annie's head. Pretty good race...not great...but OK. I loved racing when David Pearson (my hometown favorite), Ned Jarrett, Richard Petty, Fireball Roberts, Junior Johnson, Cale Yarborough, Dale Earnhardt (of course) and a few others really raced. Those were the good old days. When these guys retired or passed on, I picked Dale Jarrett for my favorite and stuck with him through good and bad. Now, he's retiring and I'm deciding who my guy is gonna be. I could pick most anybody but Tony Stewart. Ouch, I bet I stepped on a few toes. LOL!! Nope, racing is not what it used to be and I gotta say, I miss the good old days when money wasn't the reason you got on the track.

Yeeee-Hawwww!!! But I agree, its not the same like it was. Its so commercialized, its down right ridiculous!

I've been a Jeff Gordon fan since way back! (I heard all the gasps!) Yep, its true. That boy can drive!
I'll step on a few more toes...I don't like Stewart either. :> )

I just started to watch Nascar a few years ago and really am starting to like it..I got a love-hate thing going on with Tony Stewart (don't hit me)...LOL

I love Nascar and for me its prime stuffing time. With three or fours its take for a race I can get alot of doll making in. I'm a Jimmy Johnson fan.
