Hello From North Carolina & A Long-Time Racing Fan!

Post by Tony Trout » 1 week ago

Howdy, everyone!!!

I'm a long-time motorsports fan who is a big NASCAR fan who is, I am ashamed to say, is just getting back into the sport after a self-imposed 17-year hiatus after the day that tragic day in February, '01 when we lost Dale Earnhardt. I was a huge fan of Dale's and like everyone else, thought that he'd last forever and was absolutely heartbroken when we lost him.

Personally, I'm 42 years old and mildly disabled with Cerebral Palsy & Hydrocephalus (water on the brain) and was born with the above condition. Other than being a fan of motorsports/NASCAR, I'm a singer/musician who plays a good amount of musical instruments (I won't list them all here so I won't bore anybody).

I'm so glad that the admins have allowed me to join!

Glad to be here!

Take Care,
Tony Trout

Welcome Tony to TFL. We dont seem to have a lot of current day NASCAR followers here although we do discuss it. I think many are more interested in the period before the latest format changes. That may of course be a personal belief and wrong! :dunno:
Anyhow, we dont bite, and you are sure to find it a friendly environment, so enjoy your time here. :thumbsup:

Welcome!

Thanks for the welcomes, everyone. Unfortunately, I don't have any music up via YouTube or anything. If I did, I would gladly share it.

Unfortunately, my gigging days seem to be over due to my health. I'm just not able to go out and even play a one-hour set because it just tires me out physically (that's due, though, in part to having congenital heart disease.... :( )
