NASCAR Season is Back!
Other than playing golf with Scruffy and our pals, NASCAR is my favorite pastime. To tell you
the truth, I love golf, but the smell of high octane exhaust, the deafening sound of a track full of
forty-three 500 horse-powered engines all reaching peak rpms at the same time, just plain turns me
on! If you've never been to a NASCAR race, you don't know what you're missin'. I guarantee that if
you go once, you will be hooked.
My cousin is a NASCAR junkie, but until a few years ago had never been to a race, so I invited her
down to the one in Atlanta. If I could sell what I saw in her teary eyes when that green flag was
dropped and all those cars came out of turn number two, side by side, with engines screaming .... I
could make millions! You get a build up of adrenaline that makes you feel like your body is going to
jump right out of your skin. You really do owe it to yourself to go to one race and here is the
perfect way to start. Click on the icon below for SellBuyTix and you will find the only website
that allows you to purchase tickets or sell tickets that you have and won't be using. This is my favorite place to
buy tickets for all the NASCAR races. They also have tickets to other sporting events like tennis and golf, and entertainment events including concerts, broadway, and the theater.Hey, time's a wastin', check it out!
The History of NASCAR
Now that you have your tickets, I thought maybe you might like to learn a little more about
NASCAR racing. Bill France, Sr. and Ed Otto are the co-founders of NASCAR. They started promoting
races prior to WWII. Bill soon realized that folks would actually pay to watch racing, so they set out
to organize the sport. Mr. France knew that a formal sanctioning organization and standardized rules, along with a
regular schedule, would be needed, so they formed NASCAR as we know it today.
I've been doin' some research and have come up with some pretty neat places that
will make your NASCAR experience a good one. Did you know that NASCAR stands for National
Association for Stock Car Racing? And did you know that the first drivers learned how to drive
fast in the mountains of North Carolina while transporting illegal moonshine? It's true!

Here is another website that has everything you will ever need to know about NASCAR. I
MEAN EVERYTHING! Jayski's is the neatest and most comprehensive website on
the Internet when it comes to NASCAR, as far as I am concerned. He has over 1000 pages and covers more stuff than you can
shake a stick at. If you love NASCAR like I do, you will spend hours cruising on the site below.
