Being a writer, I have a mind for detail. I notice and use the five senses daily. And at a NASCAR race, it is always an eventful time to use them.
Oh the sights we see. Tailgating, promoting some new product, rowdy fans all night long, and of course the fans.
We will start with the, "CRAZY" NASCAR fan. This fan is always decked from hat to shoes in their drivers attire. A brand spanking new Jeff Gordon hat on the top of their head, a t-shirt from Gordons,"rainbow warrior," stage, a classic of course.
Rocking the Jeff Gordon pajama pants and would never be complete without the white sneakers plastered with the No.24 written in red and black. Oh yeah cannot forget the tattoo. Dedicated is this persons middle name by far.
How about the, "I really don't belong at a NASCAR race," style. Women who walk by me in 4 inch Steve Madden stilettos. Holy cow, how can you manage to walk in the grandstands like that. Talent I guess.
Then I notice a knee length dress on this woman. Black and spaghetti strap, and tight. Now of course I understand this look attracts the opposite sex, but I'm pretty sure they are too drunk to notice.
And to top of this professional and sophisticated outfit they have on hat of their favorite driver. Usually Kasey Kahne or Carl Edwards for some reason.
Maybe it's just my opinion but that's not really that appropriate for a NASCAR event.
And then of course you have the business suit men. The ones that hate NASCAR but come because they are the president of a company like Pepsi or Smart Water.
They have to show they are superior to us true blue NASCAR fans. Ha—I laugh in their faces.
Of course we have the, "crazy drunk", fans who are too drunk to pay attention to the fact that there is a race going on like 50ft from them.
They are thinking more about the tailgating than who might win.
As we make our final stop through the fan sights we hit the "Fan" This is the category I find myself under. I wear jeans, and National Guard Dale Earnhardt Jr shirt, (of course), sneakers, and my Amp Energy green hat.
Though I definitely am an obsessed fan I don't show it at races. I mean I want to be able to run if I hear there was a sighting of Dale Earnhardt Jr.
As I walk though the race tracks these are the sights I come across and I can't help but laugh.
