Hello everyone,

I am a student doing some research on Nascar fans. I was wondering if any of you can be so helpful as to answer a few of the questions below - even if it's just 1 or 2 it would be EXTREMELY helpful. Just please include your first name, age and where you're from in your response. Of course... if you want to answer all of them that would be great too !

Thank you so much!

first name, age, location?

1- How dedicated of a NASCAR fan are you?(Diehard, occasional follower, or in between) Explain.

2- Briefly, tell me the story of how you became a fan of NASCAR.

3- Do you have a favorite team/driver…? Why did you choose to become a fan of your current team/driver…? Was that a personal decision or was it influenced by friends/family?

5- What about NASCAR do you find most interesting and compelling?

6- Do you watch it on TV or in-person? Can you tell me how those experiences are different? How are they similar?-(If both) Which experience makes you feel closest to your team/driver/sport? Why?

7- Describe your feelings/emotions while watching or following NASCAR. What’s the overall experience like in the heat of the moment?-Hypothetically speaking, if you weren’t able to follow NASCAR anymore - what would you miss most?

8- What keeps you interested/watching/coming back for more?

9- What has it added to your life?(personally, socially, etc.) Has it driven your mood, social life, vacation decisions, etc?

10- Do you feel like being a fan of NASCAR, connects you to other people? How so? Why is that important?

11- Do your friends/family also follow NASCAR or do they follow other sports?- Do you think that sharing that connection to [NASCAR or a passion for sports, in general (if they don’t follow the same sport)] brings you closer together or further apart? Explain.

12- Tell me a story of your favorite "team"/driver moment - What happened? How did you react? How did you feel?

13- Now tell me about a “lowest of low” team/driver moment.- What happened? How did you react? How did you feel?

14- Do you think that experiencing the highs and lows of being a fan makes you feel closer to your team/driver/the sport of NASCAR as a whole? Explain.- Why do they think you internalize these wins and losses so much?

15- In your opinion, what does it mean to be a sports fan, in general? What are the characteristics/associations?
