    I don’t actually follow Nascar, but I do love Jeff Gordon. This article kind of made me love him: http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/23797310/

    Nifty article. He definitely has the same sort of love him or hate him reputation around the track. And I heard at lest one guy singing some version of his own made up song “Jeff Gordon is Gay” as we were leaving the track.

    He’s not my favorite but I have no real hard feelings towards him either. Of course, I don’t really have much of an opinion on any of the drivers since I don’t know enough to care. Listening to the various other conversations I heard around the track, the hotel, the casinos and the rental car shuttle and hearing how the fans were so atuned to the idea of which drivers they were actually direct fans of and then ancillary fans (i.e. if your driver is out who else can you cheer for) and then who they vehemently hate. It is a very interesting social experience to experience a race like that.
