Cant say thats true, I just started collecting and ive been a fan sense I was young. My take on racing fans is because people can relate more to it, a lot of people play sports growing up but when you become a pro its about the money and business for most. Any able person can drive a car so people relate better. And the drivers are more down to earth and act like everyday people not stuck up clebrities.
Yes, I love my diecasts but love the sport much more. As I said before, I prefer collecting Danica's personal racing gear, team equipment, and unique, hard to find Danica items. These items mean more to me and hold more value.
Racing is just in my blood, I cant get enough of it. If diecasts were no longer available, I would still love racing just as much.
I am an open wheeler at heart and I love the sport just as much, even though Danica will not be there and I will not collect any Indycar diecast. Yes, I miss her tremendously in Indycar but I cant wait for the Indycar season to get started.
As I've related before, I discovered the sport on 12/26/92 when my uncle gave me a big box of Racing Champions cars. It's become the most important thing in my life...practically the only thing that makes life worth living sometimes. (lol)
