Getting to know Rosemary:
Why did you join the Official NASCAR Fan Council?
“I joined because I wanted to make a difference in the NASCAR Community. I wanted to express my opinion to NASCAR and not from my couch.”
How did you first become interested in NASCAR?
“I went to a race in Dover back in 2003 and sat in a Dale Jr. section, but was not really a Jr. fan because I didn’t want to be a bandwagon fan. Instead, I decided I was going to pick a rookie. Without seeing or know anything about any of the rookies, I picked Kasey Kahne as my driver. I live in Mooresville, North Carolina and Kasey’s shop is right down the street from where I live so I can stop in there anytime which is great.”
What makes NASCAR special for you?
“I just love the atmosphere when you’re at the track. It’s like one big family outing and getting to see, hear and smell the cars as they go by is just an amazing feeling. There is no other sport where you can be right up front to the action near your favorite driver.”
Do you have any favorite NASCAR memories or traditions?
“There are so many memories from going to the Daytona 500 and walking the track to going to Indy and watching them kiss the brick. My favorite track is Charlotte – it’s my home track and getting to see all the drivers at the track and the shops just makes it special.”
If you could go to any NASCAR race/track, where would you go?
Do you have a favorite in any of the following categories?
Driver: “Kasey Kahne.”
Track: “Charlotte Motor Speedway.”
Memorabilia: “All my stuff that is signed by Kasey Kahne.”
Where is your dream car?
“Ford Mustang Convertible.”
