    My hubs likes Jeff Gordon. I like Carl Edwards. But most of all we just love to watch the races! We miss them!

    We watch too. I am also a Carl Edwards fan but my husband and son don't really say who they are for just who they don't want to win! LOL My oldest son was a Rusty Wallace fan and collects all kinds of NASCAR memorabilia.

    You bet!! We have gone to the race in Kansas since the opening of the track!!! It is a good 16 hour drive from our home in Canada, but well worth it!!!!!!!!!! DS love Jeff Gordon, DH was a #3 diehard, then moved on to Michael Waltrip and now this year I don't know who he is pulling for. Me and DD are Dale Jr. all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We didn't renew our tickets for this year's race, we want to go to a different track. Our Sundays are pretty sad without NASCAR!!

    I guess you could say I am :roll: I use to watch every race every week, now not so much. Quilting has moved to the front of the line :wink: I like Hamlin, my son Jr. . I will be in Daytona the week before the race :shock:

    We are #3 fans also and hope that Jr. does better this year. Sometimes I don't think he's got it in him to be a champion. I know he can never do as well as #3 did but you would think he could be better than he has been. We cheer for the RCR cars and some others. I like Tony Stewart but my DH can't stand him. LOL But we are all Hoosiers who go way back.

    I don't think Jr's heart is in racing since his Daddy died. :-(

    can't wait for the season to start again. I think that I will pick one driver to follow so I can really get into the season.

    Nascar racing is the only sport DH watches on tv! He's been laid up with a broken leg and is not-so-patiently waiting for Feb 14! He likes the older drivers and he roots for whoever is driving the Cat car. I'll watch it with him, but am not a die-hard fan. But I do root for Ryan Newman!

    I loved watching Nascar with my Dad when I was young. My favorites were Richard Petty and Cale Yarborough. Loved Bobby Allison until he died in a crash.

    then- Jimmy Spencer- our hometown NE PA boy. I have a tire from one of his car races at Pocono.

    Now- not really anyone in particular- Tony Stewart or Jeff Gordon, no one really strikes my fancy.

    I always said I wanted to be a NASCAR driver when I grew up, but until then I practice on the local expressway. :)

    I am a Jr fan...but my loyalty is waning. I think he needs to quit driving and just be an owner. He just doesn't have it in him. I used to think his driving stunk because of all the drama with DEI and his stepmother. Now he is with a new team and other than one race at the beginning it has all been downhill. It is not looking good for him. DH is a Tony Stewart fan, he actually did very well last year. I am now rally liking Denny Hamlin...he has a great future ahead of him. Clint Boyer is another good one. Dh and I are looking forward to Daytona also!!
