I am a NASCAR fan from Cali who enjoys writing and photographing this highly energetic sport. Ive been a fan for over 30 years, and was voted NASCAR.com Blogger Of The Year in 2008. I call Irwindale Speedway my second home, since I can be found there on Saturday night's during the racing season. I always try to write for the sport, without being biased towards any driver or team. Every driver deserves an equal chance, and what gives us fans the right to deny them that opportunity. I've had my articles appear on the front page at NASCAR.com, along with having them linked to USA Today.com, SpeedTV.com, DaleJrsPitStop.com, Yardbarker.com, Ask.com, CBS Sports.com, L.A. Examiner.com, Jayski.com, nydailynews.com, FanIQ.com, Rowdy.com, dallasnews.com, KyleBusch.org, racers-republic.com, as well as Jeff Gordon\'s, and Joey Logano's website.
