Connecticut Should Turn Hartford into Nashville Northeast

26-year Connecticut resident here… and I admit our state kind of sucks. It’s better than it gets credit for though. I’d rather live here than Kansas or West Virginia, but we aren’t as cool as Tennessee or Texas. We are good at some things. Our location is mint. We have New York on our southeast boarder and Boston on the northeast. You could drive three hours and be in Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, or Rhode Island. I don’t even want to know how many billions of dollars get trucked through our state as a result (that we don’t get a dime from.) It’s also lowkey beautiful here. We have the ocean to our south, and the mountains to the north/northeast (ok hills to most but mountains to me.) We have New England charm in the east, and New York money all over the west. It’s the 6th richest state in the country, with a good quality of life.

Hartford, Connecticut, USA downtown cityscape.

So, what are the two things that hurt Connecticut and make it forgettable? In my opinion it’s the low state pride leading to a bad image, and lack of identity. Our government is often majority lib, so a lot of stupid decisions made. Everyone thinks we are stuck-up rich assholes, but really that’s the shoreline and New York boarder. Thats a very small part of our state. A lot of Connecticut folks are blue collar hard workers. Just because the state government only cares about helping the insurance industry and not its own residents, doesn’t mean we aren’t good people. A few years ago, we lost a bunch of our biggest companies like General Electric to Boston because they offered massive tax breaks we refused to match. Connecticut shoots itself in the foot a lot, but we still somehow keep going. With that being said, I have a plan to change the way the entire country views the state.

Beer. Why is Nashville so popular? Broadway. Why would anyone go to New Orleans? Bourbon Street. What can you get at both? Beer. Hartford needs to rejuvenate its downtown area to make it a party center. Its already well setup. The XL Center (hockey/basketball), Dunkin Donuts Park (baseball), and Xfinity Theater (concerts) are all within a few miles of each other. We already have Pratt St. our little bar and club center. It’s a cute little start, but we need to make those a lot better. We need to make downtown Hartford so wild that people traveling to New York or Boston decide they need to make the hour trip to see it themselves. We need to make it so good that people coming up to Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine to ski or hike want to make Hartford a part of the side trip. It’s possible, it has to be good.

Let’s take it one step further. Let’s make Hartford the Northern Redneck city. First off, lets legalize anything. ConnVegas baby. Second, let’s get some Broadway type bars open up. Give me bars that have multiple levels and front windows that open up to the streets. Let’s get some live music going. It doesn’t have to be all country, but that would be the best. Lets get some other entertainment going. The Connecticut river runs right near the area I’m talking about, let’s get some party boats or river tours running. We have a convention center right near the bars, let’s bring in hunting and fishing expos more often. Let’s get cool investors to get in, why not have the “No Shoes Nation” bar by Kenny Chesney? He loves New England. Let’s have a Seth MacFarlane comedy bar. Why not get John Mayer to throw his name on a bar? A WWE bar? I mean there headquarters are located in CT. Aaron Lewis, The “Northern Redneck” bar? Fuck, Dana White is from CT, he would blow the city up. It would be wild and give CT a lot of identity for the first time.

Hartford is sandwiched between two of the biggest cities in the world, and it’s a sad, bankrupt, embarrassment of a city. It’s the gateway to New England. It should be absolutely flourishing. People come up here to ski, be outside, and recreate. Nashville was a dive of a city 20 years ago. Charlotte was a dive of a city 20 years ago. Hartford doesn’t need to be the dive that it is, it has a hell of a lot more to offer than those cities did back then. Rednecks need a haven, not everyone can afford to fly to Nashville. Let’s make that place Hartford. Let’s give Connecticut the identity it needs. Let’s make it so that I want to drive 30 minutes downtown and get a hotel and party on the strip. Will it ever happen? Absolutely not. But if Beats Beer Bonfires has anything to do with it, we will have a county bar sandwiched between two other celebrity bars.


I Thought We Had An Outlaw

Can we get our outlaw back? Luke Combs came out of the gate hot in 2017 with This One’s For You. To this day, that album might be my favorite of all time. The album highlighted by “When it Rains it Pours” and “Honky Tonk Highway” is iconic, and a game changing album. Then in 2019 we got What You See is What You Get another masterclass from Combs. Although I don’t think it was quite as good as its predecessor, it gave us “Beer Never Broke My Heart” and “1, 2 Many.” Then… Growin’ Up happened. Yikes. Luke Combs made it painfully obvious that he was no longer appealing to an audience that included me in it. “Doin’ This” sounded country don’t get me wrong, but it was kind of boring. There isn’t a drinking song on it, there isn’t a party song on it. Its kind of boring, pop, love songs or songs about time.

Naturally when Luke Combs announced he was going to change up his style a little bit on Gettin’ Old. I was excited. Did Luke realize after the poor performing first half of the album that people wanted more than poppy love songs? Well… kinda. “Hannah Ford Road” and “Back 40 Back” sound more rebelous country than a lot of his newer stuff but its missing something. Neither of those songs have any bite or edge to them, it feels like manufactured music that they are trying to sell to us. I’m not buying. “Fast Car” is a cover of an old Tracy Chapman song that went viral. Luke is sending it to pop radio. I just don’t understand, Luke rose up to be the biggest name in the genre and turned his back on everything that made him him.

Remember when Luke released “Can I Get an Outlaw” way back in the day? He sang about how country music sucks and Nashville needs a rough around the edges artist to come in and change the game. Then HE WAS THAT GUY and it worked. Then as soon as he hit the top he decided to sing the “pretty songs” that he trashed earlier. I don’t blame him for going after the big money. I’m sure selling out has tens of millions of dollars more attached to it than not selling out, but the overnight transition bothers me. I want to be a Luke Combs fan, hell I even spend $150 to stand in his pit this summer. Don’t forget about us Luke, the day 1s who propped you up when Nashville told you your music sucked.

This isn’t an article meant to bash Luke Combs. Authenticity right now is at an all-time high and an all-time low. On one hand you Hardy, basically saying I’m going to write and perform country because I’m the best at it, but I really want to do rock. You have Chase Rice saying fuck it to his pop sound, and then recording an album in his living room. Than you have the other side of it. Luke Combs, Jason Aldean, and Kelsea Ballerini all putting out shitty music because they know it makes them money, then trying to tell us country people that we are stupid for not liking it.

That’s my TED talk of the day. I’m tired of being bullied by big name artists that think there shit doesn’t stink. Just because you live in Nashville and own a Rizzini firearm doesn’t make you know what country is. Can you listen to it working a farm? Can you drink a beer to it? Can you cry to it when your girl leaves you, or when your granddaddy dies? Can you hang out around the bonfire and jam to it? That’s country. Don’t give me some pop infused LA inspired trap beat song and get mad at me when I hate it. Don’t give me 25 inorganic poppy love songs in a row and get mad at me when I hate it. Anyway, I’m going to listen to some George Strait now.


PBR Team Series: Power Rankings 1.0

The PBR team series is back! I’m a huge fan of the individual part of PBR since lets be honest, bull riding is an individual sport. But I also love the team series. The 8 teams bring an energy to PBR that will only help it grow. Last year, the last place Nashville Stampede upset the entire field and won the first ever team championship. It goes to show how close each of these teams are. This year, every team should be pissed off that they let the worst team in the PBR win the title. They should all be focused on bringing the title to their city. Lets break down who the best teams are in the PBR, who should be the favorites this year, and make our preseason championship picks.


To decide on how these power rankings, we took into consideration each teams rider performance in the 2023 season, as well as the 2022 team series regular season and final standings. Then we entered them into a formula to get the rankings.

8. Kansas City Outlaws

Kansas City is highlighted by a roster that includes Kyler Oliver. But with only 4 protected players, a last place finish in the 2022 playoffs, and a 7th place finish in the regular season, the Outlaws have some work to do.

7. Missouri Thunder

Like Kansas City, the Thunder have a lot of work to do. Andrew Alvidrez is a stud, but a weak roster around him hurts the Thunder. They finished 7th in the playoffs and 6th in the regular season last year, so the Thunder have nowhere to go but up from here.

6. Oklahoma Freedom

The Freedom are in the next class up. They have some big names on the roster, including Chase Outlaw and Jess Lockwood. Yet, the rest of the roster is littered with injuries and unperforming riders. The Freedom do benefit from finishing 4th in the playoffs and 3rd in the regular season. If this group can get healthy and consistent, they are a darkhorse for the 2023 championship.

5. Carolina Cowboys

The #1 team going into the first ever team series regular season, the Cowboys have taken a step back in 2023. They are led by studs Cooper Davis and Boudreaux Campbell. They also have the injured 2022 champion Daylon Swearingen on the team. If that big three can get together, Carolina can get back to being the darling of the PBR. Until then though, they ride a 5th place finish last year in the playoffs and 4th in the regular season to the #5 team in the power rankings.

4. Arizona Ridge Riders

Last year, my metrics hated the Ridge Riders. This year, they start the season in the top half of the power rankings. While they don’t have a top 5 rider, they have the three headed monster of Eduardo Aparecida, Keyshawn Whitehorse, and Luciano De Castro, all killing it in 2023. Arizona finished 5th in the regular season last year, but made a Cinderella type run to a 2nd place finish in the playoffs.

3. Texas Rattlers

Texas has to be excited about their team this year. While they don’t have the superstar’s name, they have 6 quality riders who can hang with anyone. Technically, all the top 3 teams actually tied in my metrics. The Rattlers get bumped below my other two teams because they have the 3rd best projected roster going into the season, below the other two. Still, Texas has as strong of a chance as anyone because they finished 3rd in the playoffs and 2nd in the regular season. Doesn’t get more consistent than that.

2. Austin Gamblers

Any team that has the #1 player in the sport has to love their chances. Austin has Jose Vitor Leme and Dalton Kasel, currently ranked 2nd and 3rd in the world on the team. They also have a solid squad around them capable of getting points. The Gamblers were the #1 team in the regular season last year but laid an egg and got embarrassed in the playoffs. They won’t let that happen again.

1. Nashville Stampede

I didn’t plan on having the reigning champions at the top of my rankings. Yet when you have the #1 roster going into this team season, and won the championship, it’s hard to deny Nashville. Let by world #1 Kaique Pacheco, and followed by another deep team, Nashville is in a great position to defend their title. They finished dead last in the regular season, but after going 4-0 in Las Vegas they shocked the world and took it all.

So this is power rankings 1.0 for the PBR team series. Power rankings 2.0 will come out after the 2023 draft. After that, it’ll come out starting in July. With the PBR world finals a few weeks away, I’m sure the rider rankings will change as well. Hopefully we can see a little bit of power ranking movement before the season even starts. PBR is starting to heat up, and I couldn’t be more excited!


I Need To Experience Texas

            Is it possible to have your favorite place in the entire world be somewhere you’ve never been? That’s how I feel about Texas. No, I’ve never been there. I’ve visited New Mexico, I flew over in when I went from Fort Lauderdale to Denver, but I’ve never touched Texas soil. I continue to hear stories about the freest state in the union. Stories of sad country songs and cowboys. Stories of rodeo, Friday night football at the local high school, and a slow cooked brisket by a bonfire. But no, I’ve never been to the great state of Texas.

            I’ve been a huge Cody Johnson fan since somewhere between 2013-2015. As I’m sure most of his older followers did, I was introduced to CoJo with “Diamond in my Pocket.” That led to some of my favorite songs, “Dance Her Home,” “Never Go Home Again,” and “Jesus Ain’t Watching” among many more. After having Cojo on repeat for months I decided to take a deeper dive into Texas. Surly if Cojo is a hidden gem, there had to be others, right? There absolutely are. At the time I got into Granger Smith and Aaron Watson, right before both dabbled in the mainstream success. More recently Texas has been on a heater with artists. Parker McCollum, Kolby Cooper, Corey Kent, and Casey Donahew are all on the way to being household names all over the country. The entire Texas country music industry is a sleeping giant, and as artists like Chase Rice, Ernest, and Warren Zeiders are even trying to develop styles made popular in the Lone Star State. The “Don’t Mess With Texas” playlist on apple music right now is my favorite, mixing national stars with up and coming artists like Austin Meade.

            The music isn’t the only thing about Texas that I love, bull riding is the best. PBR is the best show on dirt. Anytime a human wants to sit on a 2000-pound animal who wants to kill you I’m in. Right now, my boy Andrew Alvidrez is sitting 5th in the world in the PBR standings. Jose Vitor Leme, maybe the greatest bull rider ever, is positioning himself to win a third world title in just four years. Someday I’ll make it out to the World Finals, but until then I’ll just have to settle for the events in New York around me.

            General rodeo is badass as well. I’m certainly not knowledgably in it like I am PBR, but i watched Jimmy in Yellowstone one time. team roping is a sick event, two cowboys having to be perfectly in sync to knock down a calf as fast as possible. Its art to me. Barrell racing, which we do actually have around us up here in Connecticut is another favorite of mine. Rodeo is just sick because it’s all about teamwork between man and animal, or conquering animals trying to cause you harm, in a beautiful way.

            I love the art of ranching as well. In forestry, we learn that there is a balance between art and science in writing a management plan. It’s the same as ranching, theres a balance between raising cattle in an efficient and practical way, but also still doing it the cowboy way. I love knowledge, and I love people that are able to maintain tradition while also evolving with the times. Obviously not every rancher is this way, some haven’t changed the way things are run since the 1800s. I also enjoy the romanticized parts of ranching. Last November, I sat in a hottub on a backpoarch, overlooking at least 100 head of cattle, with the mountains in the background. It unlocked a part of me that I never knew was there. I strive to someday own a ranch like that and feel that way again. Sure, its hardwork, but when you were raised on working hard everyday you can overcome that.

            I’m sure Texas isn’t all glits and glamor. I’m sure that it’s a lot less like Broadway in Nashville and Yellowstone and much more of a grind. Still, I can’t imagine what its like to fire up the truck at 4 am, drive out to check the herd with Aaron Watson blasting out the speakers. Cowboy hat on the top and cowboy boots on the bottom. Then on Sunday going to a Rangers or Cowboys game to celebrate another hard week of work done. Can you love something you’ve never been apart of? Is Texas everything that I want it to be? Maybe someday I’ll find out, but for now, God Bless Texas.


Top 10 Country Artists I’d Like to Party With

10. Justin Moore

            Justin isn’t on this list because I see him as a modern day rockstar. I wouldn’t expect to see cocaine at a Justin Moore party. But he’s been my favorite singer since I got into country, and I can’t see not having him on the list. I’d be happy to just have a backyard BBQ with Justin, a few beers and a bonfire. A good ole country hangout would be enough of a party for me.

9. Lainey Wilson

            Lainey just seems like an awesome hang. I’m sure she would be fun at a party, but I want to attend a crawfish fry with her and listen to her tell the story of her rocket ship of a life. I’d want to talk about Yellowstone, working with Hardy, and where she sees her own music going. That would be an awesome time.

8. Chase Rice

            Chase just seems like a good time. He seems like the buddy that says, “damn that girl is hot” and then next thing you know he has his arm around her. He also seems like the guy that will just sit back and get drunk but watch everyone else be stupid around him. I mean, the dude owns bison. He’s cool. Throwing down with Chase on his bison farm would be legendary.

7. Michael Ray

            I think the Michael Ray crew is widely underrated. I’m sure Michael is an awesome hang. If he brings Tim Montana, even better. If Tim brings Travis Pastrana or Billy Gibbons… better. If Gibbons brings Nickelback… you see what I’m getting at. Micheal Ray seems like a good ole boy who gets a little bit of a bad reputation from his early music, but “Whiskey and Rain” and “Holy Water” are two of the most country songs I’ve heard in a long time. I’m down to booze with him anytime.

6. Jason Aldean

            Jason Aldean seems like the type of guy that has parties where everyone would wear white and drink fancy shit. Still, the guests at the parties would be insane. Dee Jay Silver, Chucks Wicks, and Donald Trump? Sign me up. Maybe the party would be at his massive mansion in Nashville. Maybe it would be down in Florida on some yacht. I wouldn’t be going to chill with Aldean expecting a camo redneck party, but it could be fun to hang with a bunch of rich conservatives.

5. Kid Rock

            Take everything I said about Jason Aldean but making it white trash. That’s exactly what I would expect from Kid Rock. I want beers flowing, extremely illegal drugs everywhere, and people driving around on quads. I want a massive bonfire that someone is dumping wood in using an excavator. I want kegs all over. I want the most redneck shit ever, and I’d expect that from Kid Rock.

4. Brian Kelly

            Give me a rager at the beach cowboys house on Daytona beach. I want some fruity beach drink in my hand, the waves in the background, and everyone in bathing suits in the sand. I’d imagine that’s exactly what it would be like to party with the former FGL singer. Give me the tropical dream party.

3. Koe Wetzel

            A party with Koe Wetzel should be how the hangover started. I’d expect to walk into the punk-country singers house, and then wake up in another state the next morning. I bet Koe goes hard, and I want to try and keep up.

2. Midland

            These guys are wildin. If you’ve never heard them on the “Bussin’ With the Boys” podcast, do it. I want all the shenanigans. I’d expect a lot of boozing, a lot of ball busting, and a wild night with Midland. They do have a cruise next year… maybe that would be a good time to go hang?

1. Morgan Wallen + Ernest + Hardy

            I’m going to cheat here. Obviously Hardy and Ernest should be on this list, but it felt kind of lame to have 30% of my list be those three. So I sandwiched them all together and I’d expect them all to be together when we throw down. Ernest has the kid, Hardy has the wife, and Morgan still has the wild side, but 1 night with these three all going 100% would be unbeatable. I can’t even imagine what a night with them would be like, but I’d be willing to bet it would be the best night I’d never remember.

            So this is my list. Who did I miss? Let me know in the comments!


The Reel Forestry and Reel Ranch Plan

I have to admit, I hate social media. I don’t see any value in it, I don’t care what 90% of people I follow post, and I’m pretty sure 99% of people that follow me don’t care what I have to post either. I’m very bad at it, I only make a post once every few months, and maybe have a few stories a week. If it were up to me, I’d never use it and let it go away. But, that’s not how the world works in 2023. People love social media. The biggest celebrities in the world right now are TikTok stars. Billions if not trillions of dollars are invested into it every year. Pat McAfee got paid 150 million dollars for three years just to say the words FanDuel. Its a wild world. It would be stupid to not try and get at least a tiny bit of the pie.

Beats Beer Bonfires was my first try at the world of social media and the internet. While nothing very notable has come from it yet, I’ve created some very exciting opportunities coming soon. I have a blog that does well, a good Instagram following, and hope for the future. However, I recently posted about two other projects I’ve been working on.

The first is Reel Forestry. Reel Forestry got created in 2020 after I graduated from college during a hiring freeze. The plan was to develop management plans for Connecticut landowners, then get my CT Foresters license and eventually execute the plans. At the time I had a major issue, I didn’t have a place to practice forestry. I had a few minor options of 1 or 2 acres, but not enough to get the full effect of writing a management plan. Eventually, I broke through the hiring freeze, got a job, and Reel Forestry was on the backburner. I never gave up on my dream though. I had the logo put on a Yeti cup, and still use it almost every day as a reminder of my dream. When Kayla and I purchased our property in 2023 and it had 10 acres, 9 of which are forest, I knew the dream was back on. Sure, I’ve been focused on the boring housework. Building things, moving things, redoing things, etc. has been consuming my time. But that’s coming to an end very soon. The weather is improving, and the Reel Forestry business plan is in development and ready to go.

The second logo I unveiled is the Reel Ranch logo. Yea I know, I live in Connecticut, we don’t have ranches. Yea I also know, ranches are out West. Sure, most ranchers will hate me for calling my little 10 acre plot of land in Connecticut a ranch. Ok fine, ranches are known for growing meat cows and I’m growing chickens and crops… its possible I have a farm. Guess what though, Reel Ranch sounds a lot more badass than “Reel Farm or Reel Agriculture” does. I’ve always had a soft spot for agriculture. I grew up surrounded by dairy farms. I went to E.O Smith High School and was a part of the FFA. Even in college for Forestry, I learned about Agroforestry and never wanted to talk about anything else. Shit, you can throw a cow in a forest, and both will thrive? Sign me up.

The first members of Reel Ranch
The first members of Reel Ranch

Reel Ranch is a project that I’m especially interested in because I want to learn. There is so much about agriculture that interests me in a way little else does. I don’t know anything about livestock besides cows give me cheeseburgers and chickens give me pork. I joined the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity trying to find people that would teach me about farming, but I found beer instead and forgot to ask the question. Agriculture is crazy to me. People only want to eat organic and non-GMO. Those same people however are the first to get mad over fertalizer emissions. They expect farmers to sell off pastures for more housing. Its bananas. I also am a sucker for the romanticized parts of farm life, as is anyone who watches Yellowstone by the way. I recently stayed in an Air Bnb in upstate New York, where I sat in a hot tub, with a beer in my hand, while a light snowfall came down, overlooking a pasture of hundreds of cows, with the Catskill mountains towering over me. I mean come on man, what’s better than that?

So yes, my sporadic and unorganized self has put more unnecessary work on my plate. I now have a full-time job, 3 business ventures that I’m exploring, learning how to be successful in the 21st century online, getting various licenses and certifications that I need, getting a house ready to show off to friends and family, and trying to maintain friendships and my relationship… I’m an extremely lucky man. I love every opportunity I have, and while I stress myself out for no reason trying to keep up, I wouldn’t trade any of this for the world. At some point I’ll have regular content, not just content talking about what I’m up to out for you to enjoy. For now here’s the plan for Reel Forestry and Reel Ranch!


Neighborly Drama

I cannot seem to catch a break as of late. Baseball is in a weird place in the world, constant vehicle issues, and now I have to deal with my neighbors every single day of my life. Neighbors have to be one of the worst things in the world, and I have absolutely no idea what to do to fix any of it. There is a massive field with long grass separating me and one of my neighbors. I don’t think the field has been cut or trimmed even once. All the garbage and shit that resides in the field, you never know what you may find.

The neighbor on the other side of that field is a total asshole, and I’m pretty sure he is the owner of the field. He leaves shit everywhere, which normally would bother me, but around his home is exactly like the field in between, never cut or trimmed, and it seems he hasn’t showered in months. I went to a tag sale he had recently, and it was disgusting the smells that came from him. Have you ever eaten Taco Bell and it didn’t quite agree with you? Yeah, think about that, and picture my neighbor prancing around trying to sell crap to strangers. It should honestly be illegal, and he shouldn’t be able to be around the general public at all. And even HE doesn’t compare to my other neighbor.

My other neighbor lives right in front of me, and is always hanging around in my space. At least he cuts his grass a bit more often, so its not so bad, but I’d almost rather he didn’t. He “waters” his grass all of the time and for some reason, I happen to be watching him every single time. He isn’t shy at all, and has to be in and out of everyone’s business. His hair is also always a mess, like he doesn’t care how he looks one bit. He doesn’t normally smell, but everytime the mailwoman on our street comes by she looks at him grossed out.

When he gets excited about something and you’re talking to him, he has a tendency of spitting in your face. Instead of just being normal, he’s gotta shoot what he’s talking about right at your face. You almost need a towel when you’re talking to him like that just to wipe your face after. And even after all of this, there are many women that STILL go over and hang out with him. They must get sick of it though, because after an hour or so of them talking, usually they’re out the door. I’ve actually talked to a few of them myself, and the few that spend the night actually say he sleeps straight up all night, and it makes sleeping with him super uncomfortable. Good thing is, I guess I’m a bit more tolerable since I’m much more chill.

Now, I’m not a stand up neighbor all the time, but i’m a product of the 2 around me. If they dont cut their grass, normally mine won’t get cut either. There is no point in mowing my lawn, if my neighbors don’t care to do it often enough. But all I really do is just hang out, and I still have more important jobs than they do, and work far harder to make a living. The frustration is mounting, and i’m not exactly sure what to do. I’m really contemplating sacking up and laying it out exactly how it is, they are the worst neighbors ever. 

Thank you all for reading a short story about my balls. Have a great day!


These Are The 10 Hottest NASCAR Wives and Girlfriends-2023 Edition

            Well, better late than never, right? The 2023 Nascar season started back in February, with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. taking the first checkered flag at the Daytona 500. Since then, we have seen an electric season filled with world renowned Formula 1 drivers coming into our sport, the GOAT Jimmie Johnson running a few races, and Hendrick Motorsports dominating once again despite constantly running into penalties every week and superstar Chase Elliot missing the past month with a leg injury. Young gun Christopher Bell is currently at the top of the points, with daredevil Ross Chastain closely following behind. Kevin Harvick, who struggled mightily a year ago is sitting in 3rd, trying to close out his storied career with another championship. But this article isn’t about them, it’s about the strong women backing these warriors on the track each week. Some of these women are models, some are cheerleaders, and some have more normal jobs. It doesn’t matter what walk of life they came from; these are the 10 hottest women in Nascar for 2023.
