shortcuts: attending the sprint all-star race, racing wags on pinterest

I have some super duper awesome news to share with you guys. Thanks to the wonderful people at 3M I get to go to the Sprint All-Star Race weekend in Charlotte! They’re paying for the trip and to make it more fun I get to bring my boyfriend. I’m really looking forward to sharing my passion for NASCAR with him, especially since it’ll be the first time he’s ever attended a NASCAR race. He’s also serving in an official capacity as my photographer.

Plus I’m really excited to get to do this with 3M because I LOVE their products and they’re not paying me to say that. I’m genuinely in love with office products like Post-it® Notes and pretty much any of the Scotch® Brand products and I was before this opportunity came up. I could seriously talk your ear off about their decorative shipping packaging tape that I recently discovered at Target the other day. I got the red zig zag pattern and my package looked so cool. I’m a nerd. :)

While I’m there I’ll have access to Greg Biffle and the rest of the #16 3M Roush Fenway team. I’m especially looking forward to touring their race shop and attending the Pit Crew Challenge for the first time. It’s going to be wonderful and I’ll be tweeting and writing all about it as usual. I’ll also be at the Coca Cola 600 the following weekend in Charlotte. So it’s going to be an awesome week of fun! Can’t wait to share it all with you. Let me know if you’re going to be there too!

In other news…

– I’m attending my first ever American Le Mans Series race at Laguna Seca next month, the week before I go off to Charlotte. I’ll be the guest of Extreme Speed Motorsports. I can’t wait to see what ALMS is all about! :)

– Are you on Pinterest yet? Where have you been? I love pinning stuff to my boards because it’s fun to see what patterns emerge in terms of my style choices (I really enjoy striped wallpaper). Anywhoo, since Pinterest has gained a buttload of attention over the last few months everybody is joining up and I noticed that a lot NASCAR ladies, including some NASCAR WAGs, have joined up, too. So far I’m following Amy Reimann, girlfriend to Dale Earnhardt Jr., Samantha Busch, wife to Kyle Busch, Shana Mayfield, Jeremy Mayfield’s wife, Jordan Fish, on & off girlfriend to Denny Hamlin (are they still together??), Beccy Gordon, wife of IndyCar driver Ryan Hunter-Reay and Montgomery Lee, Kyle Petty’s daughter.

Who do you follow on Pinterest? Let me know if I’ve missed anyone in the comments and include the link to their page! :) Pinning is fun!

UPDATE: I’ve added links to WAGs Pinterest boards on The ‘Fabulous’ Girl’s Guide to Racing. Check it out.
