Cars can contribute to a lot of fun and excitement in many ways. Whether it's a lovely Sunday drive with the family, or you're zooming 100mph down a 1/4 mile of asphalt.
Some people say you have to be able to drive cars to enjoy them. I disagree. I have enjoyed cars for as long as I can remember and still can't drive, legally on the road, yet.
One of my favorite things about cars is racing, especially drag racing. Even though I haven't been screeching down the track at 100mph, I wish I have. I can't wait until I can sit in a car (hopefully somesort of Nova) and wait for the lights on the Christmas Tree to go down to the green. Racing isn't just fun for the driver of the superfast sports car that wins against every competitor it competes against. It's just as much fun for every driver aswell as the fans and supporters in the grand stands.
Some things that got me involved in racing and why I enjoy it so much might just be that my Grandpa has been a major Nascar fan forever, or at least since I can remember and you always had to be quiet when a race was on, no matter what. Also, a couple of years ago my dad encouraged me to read the books, Hot Rod Road and Drag Strip Danger. These are both great reads and I encourage you to read them as well, if you enjoy spending time at the strip or not. The television shows Pinks and Past Time have also influenced my love of Drag Racing. When I was younger, my dad took me to many different Car Shows and Swap Meets and I didn't get much of a choice. Now, I still go to many Car Shows and Swap Meets with him, and I choose to do so instead of being dragged along, even if it means I have to work. One of the places we've been to, is Norwalk Raceway Park, for the Blue Suede Cruise. Even though it was a couple of years ago, I remember it like it was yesterday because it was so much fun.
