Racing Has My Heart

Racing Has My Heart

As you all may know I am a huge racing fan. I love both dirt racing and Nascar. Racing has my heart there is something inside me that is unexplainable. The passion I have for racing is dear to my heart. Again feelings I can’t put into words, when I am at the race track I feel like it’s home, like I belong there and nowhere else. There is no better place to be the atmosphere, the fans, the experiences and the family you gain there is nothing better than knowing that your racing family has your back it is yet again an unexplainable bond.

You know we always tend to overlook the small things in life. But don’t forget those small things in life because they matter the most. There is nothing like the anticipation of waiting for the race to start as you watch the track being prepared for the upcoming race. There’s nothing like standing up for the national anthem putting your hand over your heart and praying to God that he keeps everyone safe out there on the race track. There’s nothing like taking a sip of your dirt covered drink.

There’s nothing like walking next to the fence as the cars go by, right there that’s one of my favorite feelings there’s nothing like it the big rush feels amazing, as you feel the rush and the adrenaline kicks in. Now we can’t forget the sounds of the engines when those cars are roaring around the track and the sweet beautiful smell of that race fuel, in my opinion, the best smell ever. Most of all the excitement of the fans cheering on their favorite driver or race team. There is nothing like the passion race fans have for their favorite drivers and teams. The bond us race fans have with each other and our drivers and teams is nothing like any other sport out there today. Racing family sticks together and the support you have behind you is unbelievable. Another thing I love about racing is that no one is afraid to rally together when in need that is one great thing about racing family like I said the bond you have with your racing family isn’t comparable to anything else. For me, racing will be a part of my life until the day I die. That’s just some of it I could go on and on but we would be here forever.

One day I would love to make my own impact in the racing world. Working on my dreams of becoming a Photographer & PR ( Public Relations) for the sport. Whether it be Nascar or Dirt Racing. If I can put the passion I have for racing into my work then I will be living the dream. They always say “ Do What You Love, Love what You Do”. Right there that is my motto because racing is what I truly love so why not. Getting there has and still is a struggle but this girl even though I have my dark days when it doesn’t seem possible is one determined girl to make those dreams become possible because I believe happiness is one of the best things in the world.

Just wait, This girl will finally be home one day traveling the country from racetrack to racetrack living her dream. Living the life she dreams of with the best racing family she could ever dream of. Great experiences and opportunity lay ahead of her. As she figures out what lies ahead she knows that it is her time to shine her time to get out on the race track and drive for those dreams. Lets Go Racing Boys. What can I say racing has my heart.

My Nascar Experience at Richmond International Raceway

* Richmond International Raceway 3/4 mile D – Shaped Asphalt Track with a Capacity of 71,00 located in Richmond VA *

Hello guys sorry , it took me a while to get this posted but do I have a Wonderful Blog for you. As y’all may know on September 10th 2016 I attended my first Nascar race ever and this blog is to tell you about the experience I had while I was there lets just say it was pretty much the best day of my life LOL I am not kidding it is one of the coolest things I have ever gotten to do so let me tell you about one of the best days of my life.
I had been given two hot passes for this race which gave me access to pits & garage area and I had no idea what to expect I was so nervous knowing I was going to be around the some of the coolest people in Nascar including Drivers, Reporters etc. in the top series of Nascar.

 

Saturday Morning Sept 10th, 2016

Saturday morning we all woke up @6:00am as soon as I wake up I feel all nausea and absolutely did not feel good at this point I thought let me get up and moving and it will go away but that was the problem this feeling didn’t go away at that point I realized it was my nerves getting the best of me. I could barely move without feeling like I wanted to throw up. I slowly sipped on a bottle of water and put in a piece of mint gum to try to ease the nausea feeling it helped just enough for me to get ready and headed toward the track. Before we headed to the track we stopped by Starbucks for some coffee and I couldn’t even drink that I think I took one sip and I threw it away once we got to the track, that’s how nervous I was. Once we got to the track and got parked and we got out and we used the restroom did that nervous feeling start to go way.
Pulling up to the Track was so exciting for me It was so hard to believe that I was finally there I was pretty much one of they happiest girls on earth at the moment but at that point, I had no idea what was in store for the rest of the day. We started out on the Aventure of finding the Nascar credentials trailer to get our Hot passes. After being confused we asked for help and the wonderful Guest Services at RIR took us to where we needed to be once we got there we had to fill out and sign a form for registration to get the hot passes. Once we got everything filled out and was ready to go we found out that we couldn’t get our passes until 12:30 but the ended up opening earlier because there were a lot of people waiting. As we were standing in line the realization started to kick in that this was happening and it was the most awesome feeling to be standing in line at the Nascar Trailer waiting to get hot passes.

 

 

Saturday Afternoon September 10th , 2016

After we got out Hot passes we wandered around the midway and checked out the huge fanatics Tent and then got some lunch waiting on the track to open. After lunch , we met up with on of my Nascar Friends from online and then Headed Down to Grid Side Live where different drivers made an appearance in front of the fans down on the track wich was pretty awesome to be standing on the Racetrack. As we headed in they handed us Nascar Sprint Cup Sweat Towel man did I need that because it was super hot out.
After hanging down on the track for Grid Side Live my Nascar Friend took us down to Pit road and Garage area as he has had this access before and so he gave us a tour of Pit road. We then eventually ended up at the hauler of Jeffrey Earnhardt and the GoFas Racing Team. Where we met the owner of GoFas Racing son Mason St. Hilaire. We then just stood outside of the Hauler for a bit and when I wasn’t paying attention Jeffrey came out behind me for me to turn around and see him I was like holy crap I am so nervous and he said why you so nervous LOL. In my head, I was like because you are Jeffrey Earnhardt that’s why and I was nervous to meet someone I admire so much. I am a fan I will always be there to support him each week no matter what team he is with or how he does in each race, plus he kinda gets me also because he is pretty darn good-looking to but that is such a bonus. I am glad that I can be there to watch him succeed and grow its good to see that for a person who has so much passion for the sport and I can’t wait for the day when he is getting top 10 finishes or even winning races that will be a day I will never forget. I also got to meet Teresa and Tom Keen which if it wasn’t for them I would have never had this experience and words can’t describe how thankful I am for they opportunity they gave me. They are a Sponsor of Jeffreys and own a Company called Keen Parts  you should defiantly check them out they are great people and I am glad to know them and have them as friends.

Saturday Evening September 10th, 2016

Other than meeting the person I admire the most Jeffrey Earnhardt which he got a lot of Good Luck hugs LOL I am not kidding he did. There were some other amazing things that happened. I got the honor of standing with the crew on pit road at the car before the race started. At that the point I thought that we were going to have to leave and go back behind the pit wall but that wasn’t the case we go to stand on Pit Road for the Pre- Race ceremonies. All of a sudden I heard lineup and I was like holy crap what is happening so I got in line then one of the crew members shouted you can stand by Jeffrey so I did and man was my heart pounding. This was so exciting standing next to Jeffrey and his crew during the Pre – Race Ceremonies it was such an awesome experience.

 

After Pre – Race Ceremonies we headed back to the pit box because that’s where we planned on staying for the race, we got there and we were told that we can sit in the Pit Box for the race man was this an awesome experience. They had scanners so we could listen to Wally Rogers the Crew Chief talk to Jeffrey during the Race. Man was it awesome  watching the first round of pit stops exciting. We have the best view coming from the person who has only seen a pit stop on TV. At one point during the race, I felt someone tap me on the shoulder it was one of the Crew Members he had handed me some Lugnuts of Jeffreys car. So I had the experience of a lifetime and trust me I could probably go on and on but I think this is a good stopping point.

There is one last thing I want to tell you. after the race was over we headed back to Jeffreys Hauler to Congratulate him you wanna know why because he hand gotten his Career Best finish in the Nascar Sprint Cup Series P27 and he had led the first two laps under the first caution when I found that out I knew before I left I had to congratulate him I even got hug and I said I knew I was a good Luck Charm and it looks like all those good luck hugs paid off.
P.S I would like to Thank everyone who made this Possible it was a dream come true and I am so fortunate to know such great people and I can’t thank you all enough for giving me this opportunity hopefully I can come hangout with you guys again and Thank You So Much for not only being my friend but being part of my Nascar & racing Family !!!

 Pre-Race 

       Hello guys,  I want to tell you about an upcoming experience of a lifetime. On September 10th I will be attending my first ever Nascar race at Richmond International Raceway for the final race in the Regular Season of the 2016 Nascar Sprint Cup Series. This race is the last race before the chase it all comes down to this race if you win you’re in for several teams this is the last chance to try to get into the chase. So tempers will be on the rise as they fight their way into the chase and I get to experience it all this upcoming Saturday night.

 
    Not only am I attending this race a really awesome & Special opportunity has come to me. I will be attending this race with two hot passes this gives me access to Pit Road and the Garage areas for the race. I can not wait to meet my Racing Family without them this all would not be possible and I can’t think them enough,they have no idea how much I truly appreciate them giving me this opportunity that I thought I would never have. If you are reading this you know who you are and words can’t describe how grateful I am to have you in my life and for what you have done for me I will never forget it.

 
    I can not wait to meet my favorite Nascar Driver Jeffrey Earnhardt it will be a dream come true to be sure. I am really excited to meet him and so nervous at the same time. I am going to be so shy , my words are going to sound like gibberish. It is definitely going to be a whole new experience and I am super excited.

 
    I will post Pictures on Social Media I will link my Racing Photography information below so you can follow my experience at my first ever Nascar Race. I will post another Blog Post sometime next week to share the experience I had. So Stay tuned & watch for my Nascar experience Blog.
