Vlogiando: I’m a Latina NASCAR Fan
Ed. Note: Please click the headline to see the video
I still remember like it was yesterday when my now husband faxed me a copy of the tickets for our first date: It was the last NASCAR Winston Cup race at Homestead!
At that time, I had no idea what I was getting into… NASCAR and golf are the two events my husband enjoys and I have learned to like them because, after all, marriage is a team, right?
I still enjoy watching the confused faces on my family, friends and acquaintances when I tell them I am a NASCAR fan. They look at me like I am talking about aliens. Y ni hablar when we try to watch a race while visiting Puerto Rico!
Nowadays, I know about a few stats and rules, met a few drivers, have visited a few tracks and am comfortable talking “NASCAR” although my hope is to be able to do so with many more Latinos.
I guess my husband is right, I’m getting a little country, after all.
