REAL BRISTOL RACE FANS
By Shannon Baldwin, Ashland KY and Jo Ann Hlavac
FROM JO ANN: Race Fans are an interesting group. Colorful, humorous, resourceful, opinionated and a touch nuts! There is no group of fans more rabid than race fans. This website is devoted to the great race fans.
As many of you know we have a page called "Real Race Fans..." It has quips that pertain to race fans. Quips like "Real race fans ain't scared of no rain." OR "Real race fans love a first time winner." Or "Real race fans would rather see a good race than their driver lead every lap and win".
Anyway before the Bristol Spring Race I received an email from Shannon Baldwin from Ashland Kentucky with some quips that are for Real Bristol Race Fans. At the bottom I added a few of my own. Hope y'all enjoy.
Real Bristol Race Fans...
...are ready to see the ticket scalpers riding their bicycles
...who normally attend the race, know that TV coverage just can't do Thunder Valley justice!
... know FOX should have all the races, get rid of NBC/TNT, and hire some of the old familiar faces from ESPN (Jerry Punch we miss you!)
...have a standing appointment to have the Race Mobile washed/waxed and the "earl" changed the week of the race.
...have their jealous friends' numbers programmed into their cell phones, so they can be called and allowed to hear the engines roaring to life.
...have their Boogity, Boogity, Boogity signs laminated and ready for the TNT (FOX) TV cameras.
