Yesterday I asked Siri, “How many kids does Jeff Gordon have?”
Also–How many times has Kyle Busch crashed? Does Jimmy Johnson really shop at Lowes? Does Brad Klozowski live in the city or suburbs?
These are real questions I’m asked by my kids on a regular basis. Actually, they stopped asking me directly and now they ask me to ask Siri.
Two years ago I bought my son a small five dollar race car with an M&M’s logo on the hood and incidentally started this whole thing. These days names like Denny Hamlin and Trevor Bayne are as common as Elmo and Dora the Explorer. Joey Logano finally derailed Thomas the Tank Engine (thanks, Joey. I owe you, buddy).
To say that my 5 and 6-year-old love NASCAR is an understatement. They “played NASCAR” like it was their full-time job this summer. Parents/Grandparents/Caregivers, I’m telling you this set up was GOLD…hours of contentment if you toss in some snacks.
