Finances & Money

Weekly Roundup: NASCAR Edition

Turns out we’re going on a trip next year. Stacie and I will be going to our first NASCAR race! We’ll be attending both the Nationwide and Sprint cup races at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC.

While I never grew up as a racing fan, and even wondered why people would watch cars wasting gas and driving in circles, I’ve picked up on why NASCAR is so popular since my father-in-law is a fan and has helped educate me on the fineries of stock car racing. And when the opportunity to attend an actual race came up, we jumped on it like a squirrel on a mullet.

So without further ado, here are the articles I liked this week:
