We've said it once and we'll say it again, there are no better fans out there than ours. To celebrate how much y'all truly mean to us, we're kicking off a new Fan of the Month program to highlight Texas Motor Speedway's biggest fans.

Keeping with the throwback trend for the race this weekend in Darlington, we decided to jump in the fun. From the two-door Monte Carlo to the four-door Impala, the sporty Camaro and this year, the Chevy SS... pace cars are more than just a car leading the field to green. Each year the new paint scheme is something to look forward to, something that Eddie Gossage works closely on with the designer to create something... special.
Which year is your favorite?
Failure is not an option for the Red Rocker
From Montrose to Van Halen to Sammy Hagar and The Circle, Hagar has consistently fronted successful groups. He’s earned the highest respect of the music industry with a Grammy Award and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Van Halen.
Van Halen hits #1 with Sammy Hagar
Hagar joined Van Halen in 1985 and released the album, 5150. It was the first of four No. 1 albums recorded with Sammy Hagar, who replaced David Lee Roth. Needless to say, Hagar took Van Halen to new heights. Van Halen… Van Hagar… wait, what?
He literally can’t drive 55 (and we can’t either)
If anyone can understand Sammy’s issue with the nationwide 55 mph speed limit in 1984, it’s us. The story, as told by Sammy, “ Cop stopped me for doing 62 on a four lane road when there was no one else in sight. Then the guy gave me a ticket. I was doing 62. And he said, 'We give tickets around here for over-60.' and I said, 'I can't drive 55.' I grabbed a paper and a pen, and I swear the guy was writing the ticket and I was writing the lyrics. I got to Lake Placid, I had a guitar set-up there. And I wrote that song there on the spot. Burnt."
Cabo Wabo – need we say more?
Cabo Wabo is the name behind a successful chain of nightclubs and restaurants AND tequila. All founded by…. You guessed it. Sammy Hagar. Hagar turned his lifelong passion for great food, music and spirits into a thriving iconic lifestyle brand.
And last but not least, a little shameless self-promotion
We think it’s pretty bad@$$ that Sammy Hagar and The Circle is playing in the Loud and Proud Pre-Race Show fueled by American Ethanol. Not only is it their ONLY show in Texas, it’s their LAST show of the year. Which means it’s sure to be a great one.
