My Hero

June 7, 2012 - Luna Rossa Cafe [Miller Lite Appearance] / Gilbert PA
This was the first time I got to meet Brad, and it was honestly one of the happiest moments of my entire life. I remember being so anxious as the line inched closer to him, but when it came to be my turn, that all went out the window. Brad is such a down-to-earth guy, and it made one of my biggest moments feel like an everyday conversation. 
I asked him to sign a couple trading cards I brought with me. Fully expecting him to just sign them as fast as possible and move on, I was stunned when he took the minute to actually look at them. Of the four cards I had him sign, two featured other drivers -- the first with Kurt Busch on the other side. Brad flipped it over to see that Busch already signed it [Through the Mail], and really thought that it was cool. He then got to the next card which had Carl Edwards on the other side, as he chuckled and said "Edwards," in light of their past rivalry. Overall, it's still a night I think of, and one I will never forget. 

August 2, 2012 - Shenanigan's [Miller Lite Appearance] / Lake Harmony PA
With the two Pocono Raceway events so close together on the calendar, it took away that same feeling I had when I first met Brad only two months before. As much as I regret it today, this was the only time I chose not to get a picture with him. I still had a great time that night, and started counting down towards next June when I could do it all over again!
