Jr. Nation is what the people of NASCAR respectively call Dale Earnhardt Jr's fan base. He has the best and biggest fan base every year! I dare you to tell me otherwise... haha. 10 years ago I would have never guessed you would be able to include me in that group, but I am proud to say you can!
I was friends with my husband's little brother in high school. I knew who my husband was, but we never really ran with the same group. He was a couple years older than me and his brother was a couple years younger than me. The girls I hung out with had adopted some younger girls into our group and therefore some younger guys got added as well. That's how I first met my brother-in-law. We became friends and stayed in touch when I left for college. When I moved back home before Christmas my sophomore year (due to being too homesick... I never saw that coming! haha) , BIL and I had made plans to catch up. I was in town because I had gone to a friend's baby shower and went over to his house after. Hubby still lived at home and he was there, also. He was in his room watching the Daytona 500 and I made some smart response when I walked past his bedroom about NASCAR being for hillbillies. We laugh about that now.
BIL and I made our way over to hubby's room and out of nowhere we started to hit it off. We all sat there and watched the Daytona 500 and I continued to bash him for being a NASCAR fan. Shortly after that encounter, we had scheduled our first "date". From there it was all downhill, I'm now one of the oddest NASCAR fans you will ever meet. I follow it closely and completely love it! So lesson learned... Don't knock it until you've tried it! :)
