Misty texted me a picture earlier in the week that sums up her 2014 Chase Driver conundrum in a single photo:
It’s actually kind of a cool, yet slightly creepy picture. But it describes Misty’s chase conundrum perfectly. See Misty has been a Jeff Gordon fan longer than she’s be a NASCAR fan (yeah I know that sounds weird but it’s true-I can completely vouch for that). However, she has lately (within the last couple of years) been pulling for Jimmie as her number two with a catch: While Jeff Gordon is Misty’s number 1 driver, Chad Knaus is her number 1 crew chief. I know Misty would be OVER THE MOON if Jeff Gordon won the championship, but I really don’t think she’d cry in her soup if Jimmie won. So she is being pulled in two different directions but at least it is within the same organization.
Me? I am extremely singular in my fandom. (more…)
