I never have been a fan of NASCAR racing.  This point was made quite clear thirteen years ago at my younger daughter’s first birthday.  With a February birthday, I chose the Sunday nearest to it for a family gathering in the afternoon. At some time during the event, my parents mentioned that it was a big day for my daughter and a big day in the world of racing.  Apparently, I looked quite puzzled, and they informed me that it was the day of the big Daytona race.

I was familiar with the Daytona 500, but it could have been held any month of the year, as far as I was concerned.  I had no idea that the race was a February event.  As luck would have it, for many of my daughter’s birthdays, the Sunday that was the best day to schedule her party was. . .Daytona Sunday.  Of course, my parents always came to the party, and at some point we turned the tv on to check the status of the drivers.  However, I never gave the race much thought.

Moving forward to present time, I am well aware of the day of the race and not because of my daughter’s birthday.  As WMG has a racing publication, Gas Pedal Addicts, I keep current with the NASCAR schedule and to a lesser degree the drivers in the different leagues.  I still am not a fan of racing, but I am better versed.

Having a diversity of niche properties is one of the things that I like best about Wasabi Media Group.  Building this company, I wanted to cover a wide array of topics in the hope that we would offer a little something for everyone.  For those of you who enjoyed this past Saturday’s Budweiser Shootout and are eagerly anticipating Daytona 500 next Sunday, give Gas Pedal Addicts a peek.  For those who are in my family, yes, the fourteen year old’s party is on Daytona Sunday again this year.
