Normally I can describe myself as a wife, mom, photographer, scrapbooker, flea market hunter, cat lover, Victorian and country lover, lace and frills...BUT, there is another side all together.... the one that showed up this past weekend. The speed lover, high octane, rubber burning,roar of the engines, backflipping (not me, my favorite driver) NASCAR lover. Yes, I'm hopelessly addicted to Nascar, for a long long time.
This weekend was my first race of the season at Pocono Raceway. I count the days till June rolls around. Spent two days at the track. Friday I got to see and talk to my favorite driver Carl Edwards. =) You know you are addicted when he recognizes you and says "nice to see you again". Got my hug and photo with him. Carl is one of the best out there. What a great role model and all around nice guy. Even non fans have great things to say about him.
Had fun, a photographer took some pics of me and a friend and we made it in the online edition of the Pocono Record. My "HAND" was also on the front page of the paper... Sillyness, but fun.
Sunday was a misty rainy day. Thought for sure that the rain would come down on us as it often does at Pocono. We made it through. Seeing a race in person is awesome with 75, 000+ other fans. My guy Carl, had car trouble but he was able to finish. He still holds the Championship lead by five points.
Congrats to Jeff Gordon on winning the race. He is also a very nice guy!
Now I'm counting down the days until the next race in August. I told you I was addicted!!!
