Start Your Engines…It’s NASCAR 2012
Ladies and Gentleman Start Your Engines!
For so many years I couldn’t understand for the life of me the excitement and enthusiasm that surrounds NASCAR and the Daytona 500, but after attending my first Daytona 500 race a couple of years ago (not my first NASCAR race) I could clearly see why this event marks to the beginning of what is always an exciting, electrifying and drama-filled NASCAR season.
Even though in 2010 we had the opportunity to watch Danica Patrick race at Daytona, this will be NASCAR’s newest darling’s first official race as she steps away from Indy cars to what some would call the ‘Big Leagues’. Racing in the car sponsored by Go Daddy let’s hope even with the inexperience of racing in NASCAR Danica does the ladies proud.
Now I haven’t forgotten about the usual suspects like Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Bush, Jeff Gordon, Kurt Busch, and the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Tony Stewart, these guys always show and prove in each race.
But I have to introduce you to the NEW Jersey Girl favorite, Trevor Bayne, the 2011 Daytona 500 winner. If you haven’t had an opportunity to read the interview on this down-home NASCAR cutie that we did last week, be sure to check it out to get better acquainted with Trevor.
Courtesy of our wonderful friends at NASCAR, Jersey Girl Sports will be giving away autographed merchandise from the defending Daytona 500 champ himself. Also be sure to watch the Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 26th at 1pm ET on FOX because if Trevor Bayne receives a better finish than other drivers that we are racing against, YOU could win a trip to the NASCAR All-Star Race in May in Charlotte, North Carolina with one of us from Jersey Girl Sports. How Cool!?!
So here are the 5 things that you need to remember…
