Let's Go Racing, Boys

Today is the Daytona 500...the first race of the 2012 Nascar season !!!

This is a wonderful painting that a dear human friend had made fur my momma back in 2004, with all of her dogs at the time, acting as da Pit Crew for Mr. Jimmie Johnson's 48 car!!!   Sadly, everyone is now at da Bridge, except fur Brudder Rooney and Sissie Ditto (they are the tire carriers in the front of the painting)

Of course, we will be screaming and yelling and generally making a fool outta ourselves for Mr.  5-Time (aka Jimmie Johnson) and da Lowe's 48 car.  

Jimmie Johnson is our favorite driver.........because he is a 5-time champion and grrrreat driver (and most importantly, because my momma think he is soooooooooooo handome.  Hubba~Hubba)

Butt, we are also excited to be watching Smoke (Tony Stewart), Mr. Jeff Gordon, Mr. Cousin Carl Edwards, Mr. Happy Kevin Harvick, etc etc etc etc........

The New Year doesn't begin in January.......
It begins in DAYTONA!!!!!

Can you tell we are race fans????heeeheeeee

We'll be watching, too! Our dad is a HUGE fan. Mom will be cheering for Smoke, dad for Dale, Jr. but we're rooting for Danica even though she said lots of HBO words yesterday when she crashed!! (She kinda reminds us of our mom that way...) Have fun!!

I only know of Dario Franchetti, Ashley Judd's husband, but now that you've pointed out that Jimmie Johnson is another handsome driver I just might be persuaded to watch the race! Thanks!
