ClosetNASCARFan.com is a lot like the single car teams of the NASCAR garages. We’re small. We operate on a shoestring budget, and don’t have the staff or resources of the big boys in media. But we’re nimble, growing and getting our foot in the door. We love what we do, and love sharing it with you all.
As NASCAR fans, we’re positioned in the right area of the country. We’re in central North Carolina, and are just a couple hours drive to multiple NASCAR race tracks, as well as the majority of the race teams in and around Charlotte — something a lot of NASCAR fans can’t say. So part of our charter is giving everyone insider looks in and around NASCAR, something we’re able to do more and more of.
Martinsville Speedway Rocks
In the past, Martinsville Speedway has been gracious enough to get us access just like the big media boys and we’ve taken full advantage of that. I’ve been able to capture photos, video and content I wouldn’t otherwise get without that access.
It’s also allowed us to expand on the interviews we’re able to get. In the Spring, I interviewed both Michael McDowell and David Ragan from their haulers parked in the small infield of Martinsville Speedway.
The teams and drivers were completely gracious to us, and ClosetNASCARFan.com is building its reputation and readership through these interviews.
Richmond Raceway Bound
Now, we’re happy to announce that Richmond Raceway has also granted us media credentials. So for the next two days (Friday and Saturday), we’ll be at the track, in the garages and in a few haulers from the morning through the end of the two nights’ races.
We’ve got interviews scheduled with No. 23 driver Corey LaJoie, No. 34 driver Landon Cassill, and Elliott Sadler / Clint Bowyer’s spotter, Brett Griffin, and possibly more to come.
I’m so thankful to the staff of these tracks, teams, and drivers that have given us a few precious moments during their busy race weekends.
If there’s something you want us to capture from Richmond, drop me a line on Twitter with want you want us to try to get to.
We don’t make a cent running this site and we’re honestly not trying to do so. It’s not my full time job. It’s squeezed into moments between work, coaching soccer, and raising two high-energy boys.
We love the sport, love supporting it, and love experiencing it.
I’m so excited for what’s going to be a whirlwind weekend, and hope you’ll support our efforts as the little web site that can.
