Start your engines!!!
As the powerful engines roar, fans throughout the entire country prepare to watch 20-plus cars go head to head at top speeds.
Many fans of Nascar look forward to race day. They order wings, maybe some pizza, cook on the grill, whatever the preparation may be.
Many of those fans are right here at Penn Manor.
Penn Manor freshman, Ian Borden, claims he has always loved Nascar.
“I’ve always enjoyed watching Nascar, it’s quite entertaining” Borden said.
Ian Borden is a very committed Nascar fan.
“I watch Nascar as much as I can and try to fit it into my schedule.”
Though the opinion may vary when it comes to who’s the best driver, all fans have one thing in common and that is the love for Nascar.
But everyone does have a favorite driver.
“My favorite racer is Dale Earnhardt Jr., he is a great driver and seems like a nice guy,” claims Borden.
Preparation for watching the big race is key. You need the right snacks or food to intertwine with a drink to create the perfect meal to go with the race. Ian Borden buys a lot of snacks before each race.
“The best part are the crashes,” Borden said with high energy.
It seems many students at Penn Manor like Nascar. But they’re not always eager to admit it.
One local Nascar fan requested to remain anonymous. She didn’t want her name used but she said she thinks Nascar is good for her family.
“I like Nascar because my family and I watch it and it brings us closer,” said the freshman at Penn Manor.
Once again Dale Earnhardt Jr. comes into play.
“My favorite racer is Dale Earnhardt Jr. because my grandma really likes him and it rubbed off on me,” said the girl who makes wings and orders pizza before each race with her family.
“Some crashes are cool but when somebody gets hurt, it’s not too cool,” said the girl.
Nascar is a popular sport among American citizens. There are many fans to the Nascar world. Some are huge fans and some just watch it because it’s enjoyable.
Whatever the case may be, it’s safe to say that Nascar will be around for a very long time.
