NASCAR Hats are the fans that wear themat NASCAR Races

Last weekend was the occasion of the Kobalt 400 NASCAR Cup race here in Las Vegas.  The weather was a perfect 72 degrees with a slight breeze and light cloud cover.  Perfect for racing .  But you had to have on a hat for sure.  Ballcaps with drivers names,  your brand of  alcohol laden beveredge, favorite auto maker, or hometown construction equiptment company were of coursr 90% of the hats on view. The other 10% was the fun stuff.  The cute blond with the Coors Light 12-pack carton hat was outstanding.  Aluminum foil hats with antenae to keep contact with the mother ship shined and shined.  Cowboy hats from the $300 George Strait models worn by those with the high value security access tags saying I'm special  to the real people cowboy hats with  wear holes, sweat stains, and beer logos.  Dale Jr and Richard Petty are hatmaking trackside icons you can see  in every direction.  Hats at a Speedway race  are as American as NASCAR, BBQ turkey legs, dyed blond hair, and rows of Harley-Davidsons.
