Presenting NASCAR content from around the web

Editor's note: On Wednesday at noon ET, "High 5" will present some of the best NASCAR-related content from around the web. 1. Teardrops on my piccolo Villanova University band member Roxanne Chalifoux took the Internet by storm this week when she was shown on television playing the piccolo with tears in her eyes just prior to Villanova’s loss to N.C. State in the NCAA basketball tournament. Chalifoux's waterworks caught the attention of millions, including late-night host Jimmy Fallon, who invited the dedicated musician to perform on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon." After playing with Fallon’s house band "The Roots", the host had another surprise for Chalifoux:  Tickets to Taylor Swift’s world tour. Chalifoux -- a huge fan of the pop star -- almost started crying … again.  We bet Denny and Jimmie are jealous of those tickets. Well, Jimmie’s daughter Evie, at least.   RELATED: Watch out, Denny: Jimmie sings Taylor Swift Read More
