There’s something you need to know about us.  We’re major NASCAR fans.

The folks at Lionel NASCAR Collectables aren’t just punching a clock every day – we enjoy racing just as much as you do.  Most of us were fans long before we started working here and we still can’t wait for race weekend to roll around.

That’s why we’re so excited after our trip to Daytona Speedweeks.  We took nearly 1,000 photos and we’re still amazed with everything we were able to see and do.

A few of the highlights for us were having dinner with Bobby Allison and our RCCA members – and Chocolate Myers walking into the room.  Getting to  hang out in Victory Lane after the Drive4COPD 300 and the Daytona 500.  Talking to Brian Scott, Joey Logano and Clint Bowyer during our RCCA tour.  And seeing the hundreds of folks who showed up to the pre-race Tweetup to get an autograph from Bobby Allison, our special guest.

A few of our favorite Daytona photos are below.  We hope you enjoy seeing them as much as we did taking them!
