Why NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing)? My Dad didn't watch a lot of TV, but he as a big time motor sports guy. Given the chance, he'd watch Indy car, stock car, motorcycle dirt track, or motorcycle cross country. If it had at least 2 wheels and an engine, he'd watch. Since I was a big time daddy's girl when I was little, I'd sit and watch the races with him. It was our hang out time for about as long as I can remember.
I quit watching once I started working during the high school years, weekend time was money making time. But I discovered when I was in graduate school that a NASCAR race was something I could put on the TV that would allow me to drown out my noisy neighbors but would play in the background so I could still study, well at least until someone crashed. I've watched on and off over the years. When I started quilting, I got interested again. It's something I can turn on the TV, let it hover in the background and sew until something interesting happens.
The NASCAR Sprint cup race has become known in this house as Mom's sewing time. So how can that not be a favorite thing?
