Hi Ladies,

Any Nascar fans amongst us?

I can't wait for them to rev the engines and get started.

I had the honor of meeting and chatting with The King,Richard Petty. I was schoolgirl awestruck. It was something I will never forget.

Let' go racing boys!!

The Intimidator was awesome. There will never be another. Such a loss. I remember standing in front of my TV that aweful day sobbing.

I like Jimmy and Carl also. Tony Stewart is MY BAD BOY guy. Just love his scruffy face!!

Saw a race in NH.

Soon ladies soon. But oh it is so hard to knit watching the race. I get crazy screaming at the TV. My dog thinks I've gone bonkers!!

Keep knitting
Linda

:thumbup: HI you can count me in as a NASCAR fan! Never watched it until my gentleman friend got me hooked. Now, I plan my weekend activities according to when a race is on. My favorite driver is Matt Kenseth. Boogety, boogety, boogety-- Let's go racing,boys! My name is Carol (also known as finn55)and I'm a Cheesehead from Northern WI. We are SO proud of our Packers, and, especially, Aaron Rodgers. (Bret,who??)

I don't think Jr. will ever come close to his dad as a driver either.
Jr. doesn't seem to have the aggresivness Sr. had. Of course NASCAR keeps changing the rules, adding more rules etc. making it difficult to be a hard nosed race car driver.

You are so lucky..Talladega

I can't wait.

Everyone is so right, there will never be another Dale Sr.
But he probably wouldn't be the same with todays rules.

Little E is his own person.

Let's all think positive for a safe season for all the drivers and pit crews and fans.

Open your window and we can all shout..boogety, boogety let's go racing together in a very few days. Wouldn't that be an awesome sound?

Dale Sr. will be sadly missed by everyone who was involved with NASCAR. The world lost a really good driver. Jr. won't be like his dad because his dad got away with the "tricks" he pulled while on the track.....thus the Intimidator was born! I'm now a Jeff Gordon fan an can't wait for the Daytona!!!!

I love Nascar too. My favorite idriver s Jeff Gordon. I met him once at a fan event in Chicago. He's quite a guy. Our family have been fans ever since the Richard Petty days. We run our own pool every week and go out for a Nascar dinner together with some of the money after that last race. Won't be long now.

By the way, I'm Linda from Rochester, NY. I'm in the middle of knitting a baby blanket too. Now I know why I usually do something smaller. I'm going to send it to Debbie MaComber for one of the charities she supports. I then hope to do some other knitting for local charities. Maybe will have some things done by next winter.

Very soon now we will hear the roar of the engines and sit glued to the TV.
It is so hard to knit and watch. I get so caught up in the race. Love when they start bumping..good ole days of racing.

They guys are getting "old" and each race seems to have a new baby.
