Nacogdoches NASCAR Fan Dreams of Checking Off ‘Bucket List’
I met Jason when I first moved to East Texas and he looked like a biker back then. In fact, he was a biker, complete with long hair and sleeveless muscle shirts. When I would see him around town, even the muffler on my pickup got quieter when he passed: we didn’t want to make this tough looking biker dude mad. Just like most bikers, when I got to know him, I found out he was one of the nicest people around. He was always doing good deeds for the less fortunate.
These days, Jason, looks more like Si from Duck Dynasty: happy, happy, happy. He drives a tiny Subaru fitted out like a miniature motor home complete with refrigerator, storage, camping supplies, and a bed for his tiny dog Charlotte.
Jason at the ripe old age of seventy has a dream now. He has always loved NASCAR and his driver of choice is Jimmy Johnson, #48. Jason’s plan is to go and experience all the NASCAR races in the 2014 season, living the life of a nomad race fan,until Jimmy Johnson wins another championship.
The problem is the money needed to follow his dream, and that’s how I hope the fans of KSFA can help. Jason will take any size donation to help make his dream come true, but for $48.00 (Jimmy Johnson’s car number 48), you can sign Jason’s car with your own message or put a sticker on it to promote your business or charity. I think this will be lots of fun and will also help promote the good will of East Texas as Jason travels over the country from race to race.
