mother’s day NASCAR style

Mothers of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers give the command to start engines before the Dodge Challenger 500 at Darlington Raceway (Photo Credit: Chris Trotman/Getty Images for NASCAR)It was a super sweet moment seeing the group of NASCAR moms standing the track telling their son’s to start their engines.

With that said though it sucks that Kurt and Kyle Busch’s mom had to take on the fans booing her son. It’s one thing to boo Kyle but not when his mom is being honored for Mother’s Day. That’s really lame.

Everytime I see Kasey’s mom, Tammy, I’m always in awe of the fact that she looks like she could be his sister and I don’t mean that in an Eddie Haskell kind of way either. She looks great.

Dale Jr’s mom, Brenda, wins for best outfit, I would totally go out and buy this entire ensemble. And I’m not just saying that ’cause she’s the mother of my favorite driver. Seriously, it’s a great look. :)

    Yes, Tammy looks great to be *whispers*50+*whispers*! She’s too freaking adorable and really nice, if you ever get the chance to meet her.

    And yes, I agree. It was very disrespectful to boo Mrs. Busch during the intros and I lost all respect for those fans. (Well, you know what I mean.)

    Are you ready? We have just over a week!!!
