Whiskey Riff Mailbag: What’s Your Craziest NASCAR Story?


If you’ve never been to a NASCAR race before, I promise you, it is an experience.

The best way I can really describe it to someone new to racing or who’s never been to one is that it’s literally just a free-for-all.

They used to even allow coolers in (at least in Charlotte, not sure if they still do now) and you could bring whatever beer you wanted and camp out in the baking sun with the thick scent of Sunoco race fuel in the air.

Guys walk around shirtless in the grand stands with a Coors in one hand and a Marlboro in the other, and endless possibilities for good times abound.

I wish I had a better story for you of my own, but unfortunately, the best I can do is ramble on about a few cat-calls and a nasty comment I heard one time when I wore a shirt that said “Dale Yeah” over my chest.

NASCAR has gotten stricter about rules over the years in terms of what fans can and can’t do, but I know that doesn’t stop any of y’all from having a good time.

I’ve talked about some of the best stories when it comes to different drivers over the past few weeks, like Dale Sr.’s, Junior Johnson’s, and even Dale Jr. and Jimmie Johnson’s wildest times, but this go-round, we want to hear from you.

What are your best stories from a race? What crazy shit have you done/seen in the infield or the grand stands?

I know y’all have them, so tell us anything when comes to something you’ve seen, done, or experienced at a race, some sort of NASCAR-related event, or even a wild experience with a driver if you have one.

Whatever comes to mind, we want to hear it all.

All of your responses will be anonymous and we’ll share the best ones, so show us what ya got by filling out the form below and don’t hold back:

Lookin’ at you Talladega…
