I am currently 29 years old and a recent graduate of Valparaiso University located in northwest Indiana. I have been a fan of NASCAR since I was but a little boy. I was a big fan Ricky Rudd initially, then Jeff Gordon came along and stole my heart. Looking back, I think I just liked drivers that drove brightly colored race cars. Rudd's Tide paint scheme on his #10 Ford Thunderbird is still my all time favorite car.
