Ok, when Jeff Gordon came into Victory Lane after Kasey Kahne finished his interview with ESPN and said, “Dude, I’m so proud of you!” I almost teared up. I mean, c’mon, how cute is that?? That’s so sweet!

Congrats to Kasey and his No. 5 Farmers team, they won on my birthday! That’s special because fun fact: my birthday is an amazing day in the world’s history, you guys!

And as a birthday present to myself, I have confirmed that I will be going to the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway at the end of October! I’ve never been to TMS and I’m excited, I think it’ll be an awesome race to attend. Let me know if you’ll be there, too!

In other news…
