How long have you been a NASCAR fan? And who's your favorite driver, drivers? Or do you follow a specific manufacturer?
Growing up in Kannapolis and being the neighbor of former NASCAR crew member David Oliver (who was once married to Dale Earnhardt's sister), I was indoctrinated into being an Earnhardt fan from the start.
I would say that I knew of racing as early as the 1979 season, but probably really became a diehard fan around 1981 or thereabouts.
I've always been an Earnhardt fan and still pull for Dale Jr., but I also pull for most Chevrolet drivers and a few others.
I've probably been to at least 100 races or more. I started going to races as a kid at Concord and Charlotte Motor Speedway. I've been do dozens of Charlotte races, several in Daytona to include the Daytona 500, and races in Texas, Martinsville, and Rockingham.
