Sometimes I like to think back on my childhood and the fond memories that I have stored up in the old noggin. There are many reasons why I had a great childhood and experience growing up, and the biggest reason definitely has to do with my parents.
You see my parents were never the type to put a damper on my dreams. If I loved something, they let me go after it or be a part of it until my hear was content. That can make for a very happy kid.
One thing that brought me a ton of joy as a child was NASCAR. I loved cars and racing. Every Sunday when the race was on, I would grab my Dale Earnhardt fan paraphernalia and pop a squat right in front of that big wooden encased TV and not get up but on commercial breaks. I was hooked.
What goes with NASCAR better than country music? Okay, maybe a beer or a plate of hot cheesy nachos might go better, but country music is pretty high up there too. Last Friday night the country singing sweetheart from Oklahoma, Reba McIntire hosted the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort & Casino on the SPEED channel.
