This one is for my niece, a rabid racing fan, and her husband, a stock car pilot and stand-up guy, who will be flying out to the desert to attend the NASCAR event this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. I’m not a huge NASCAR fan, and I normally don’t include the more recent model years in my Impala collection, but I appreciate the contribution that Danica Patrick has made to this male-dominated sport. She has had great success in open-wheel racing, including her 3rd-place finish in the 2009 Indy 500. Although she finished fourth at last year’s Las Vegas NASCAR race, she has been given 50-1 odds to win it this year.
Anyway, I hope my niece and her husband have a great time at the races!
