Day 129

Tonight was a sad night for Carolina fans everywhere. Carolina played a very uncharacteristic game letting Kansas lead by a huge margin. They fought their way back but wasn’t able to play through. Both semi-final games were upsets leading up to a bracket busting championship.

Car of the Day:

1997- 2006 Jaguar XK8

Character of the Day:

Candace has one of the greatest stories I’ve heard. She is originally from Oklahoma City and was on the scene five minutes after the bombing. Her parents own a towing company, Arrow Wrecker Service, which was called upon to remove all of the damaged cars in front of the building. Attending college in Dallas, she earned a degree in fashion & Marketing. After working in a retail store she gave in to her urge to race. Candace started out drag racing in the streets for money and grew up at the dirt tracks. Being a grease monkey she worked on all her cars herself. Then she went racing… and got 7th in points her first year at Mesa Marin Raceway in Bakersfield, CA. Ever since then she has followed her dream to become a NASCAR driver. She is sponsored by Jesse James the Chopper builder on Discovery Channel. She is excited to be in race city USA, after moving from Fullerton, California, and being one step closer to her dream. Her favorite thing about Birkdale… ‘meeting you”.
