Getting to KNOW Angelique
How did you first become interested in NASCAR?
“I first became interested in NASCAR after my mom moved to Palm Coast which is 30 mins from Daytona International Speedway. She was the one who suggested I watch it and pick a driver. The first race I watched on TV, I picked Kyle Busch because he had the green crispy M&Ms car which looked awesome. Since I didn’t know much about NASCAR at the time I didn’t realize until after watching that race for a little while that Kyle was in first! Haha! From that day on, I continued to follow NASCAR and haven’t stopped watching since.”
What is your favorite part of NASCAR?
“The rivals. The racing. The strategy. I witnessed Kyle Busch’s win at Pocono July 2017, where he had a pit strategy that helped him win the race. It is so much more than just driving around — which is what some people think of. It is calculated moves that add up to taking the lead and winning the race. It is exciting.”
Who are your favorite drivers?
“Kyle Busch. My first ever race my mom and I waited in the pit/paddock area and I got Kyle Busch’s autograph! My first race and I got an autograph. What other sport can you get this close? I couldn’t believe it. And Martin Truex, Jr. He is a great driver as well. He is also from NJ, which is awesome.”
Do you have a favorite in any of the following categories?
Place to Watch a Race: “At Pocono – Top of turn 1, at Dover top center, at Daytona top center!”
Sponsor: “M&Ms because Kyle is my fav driver and I used to live in Hackettstown, New Jersey where they make them.”
