Every longtime NASCAR fan has that one race that stands out and gives them goosebumps. That one race that they bore witness to that they intend to tell their grandchildren about with a smile as they recall those moments when every fan watching the race wasn't sitting down at all.
My personal favorite was the 2001 Cracker Barrel 500 at Atlanta. As a 12-year-old Dale Earnhardt fan growing up in Oklahoma, I vividly recall standing in my living room with my father as we watched the closing laps with rookie Kevin Harvick somehow managing to hold off a pair of champions to win in just his third start. I remember screaming, asking to no one in particular who won, while Mike Joy screamed deliriously that it was Harvick, Harvick got him.
Of course, it's different for every fan. Some are bound to recall moments from Bristol to Daytona, or Talladega to Darlington. Still, these are the races that thrilled us.
