      I spent about 35 minutes in the divine presence of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. today. Yeah, I can’t believe it either! My husband and his best friend have a website (rubbingsracing.com) and they are now registered as media with NASCAR and have credentials to cover the upcoming Atlanta race.  

      Today, AMS had an event to publicize the first ever night race (that I won’t be attending with the guys...grrrr...) with Dale, Jr. The Managing Editor couldn’t make the event today, so I got tapped to go with my husband, who is the photographer. It’s the first ever event like this for rr.com and we thought it would be huge and I’d never get anywhere near him. Surprisingly, only a few media people were there and I got about 10 minutes of one-on-one time with him. You can see pictures on rubbingsracing.com or on my facebook page. (Lisa Cooper DeSpain)

      Sweet guy. Very polite (called me ma'am, I could have shot him!). Gorgeous blue eyes and the nicest smile. I was going to pinch his butt for all of you, but my husband threatened to kill me and leave me in Buckhead. I could have gone for dead, but in Buckhead? Yuk! Yuppie city! i wouldn't be caught dead there! grin Anyway, great day, great guy and even though I'm not a special fan of his, I hope his luck turns around. He deserves some success.

      Ok, I just wanted to let y‘all know how I spent my day.estatic
      Can’t wait for Michigan!

      Dale’s nice but...Go Tony! (you knew that was coming!)

        • How fun for you, Lisa! I’m a Clint Bowyer fan, myself. He’s a local boy. Hoping I’ll get to meet him someday. My hubby just got back from the Brick after spending some time with Clint’s family, but didn’t get to meet Clint.  

          We got to ride for about 2 blocks in the Woodward Dream Cruise one year! That’s some crazy traffic down a fairly narrow roadway. We happen to be in Detroit for a Heritage Museum special event. Hubby is in to Camaros big time!

          Thanks for sharing your excitement with us!

        • Haha! Vikki, I wouldn’t say we were actually “in it“, but we were trying to get out! it was pretty cool though, we were in a bright yellow SSR, and people did think we were part of the cruise. My hubby was eating that up!
