Aaron Rosser

NASCAR Contributor

I'm a lifelong NASCAR fan from Georgia. Lifelong only equates to about a quarter-century or so, but still. I've studied the sport religiously and clung to every detail I could, and its served me relatively well, I guess. On race day, I am as ferverent a Tony Stewart fan as you will find and even during the week I can be found on Tony Stewart fan sites and talking with other fans (or arguing with his detractors) on Twitter. He's been my guy since May of 1998. Its pretty cool to be able to say I was on Tony's bandwagon when short track fans around the country knew him well, as did the fans in the IRL (where I discovered him, obviously), but aside from his occasional starts in the Busch Series, most NASCAR fans had never even heard of the guy. As a writer, I'm a fan of all the drivers. Even guys I don't root for on race day, I find their good points (and the faults of the guys I DO pull for) and then try to write it out to the best of whatever writing ability I may have and without bias towards or against a particular driver. I may reference being a fan of Tony Stewart or the other guys I like (Bobby Labonte, Kevin Harvick, Mark Martin, Bill Elliott, David Ragan, Martin Truex, Juan Pablo Montoya), but I'll never write something driven by fandom. If I write it, its because as an unbiased wannabe racing writer, I believe it in my head and heart. As a cartoonist, I try to bring humor to this sport I love and to the folks I love: race fans. I get as much out of genuine laughter at one of my cartoons (well, as long as it's at the material IN the cartoon and not at the cartoon itself) as I do out of compliments on a story I've written. Besides NASCAR I'm a pretty big fan of the Atlanta Braves and while I have pretty diverse interests when it comes to music, my main man is John Mellencamp. I also love writing fiction, looking at pretty girls, collecting 1/64 NASCAR & Hot Wheels cars and stuffed animals, and daydreaming.
