Column: NASCAR Fantasy Fusion
Read Carol's work
Carol D’Agostino is founder of Purple Cat, a niche public relations agency on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Born and raised above the Mason Dixon line in Pennsylvania, her journey with NASCAR began shortly after the death of Dale Earnhardt. Like many women she watched her first NASCAR race on TV on the sofa next to her now former significant male.
Carol received her first Fantasy NASCAR game as a Valentine’s Day gift, and began planning trips to races soon after. She has seen races at Dover International Speedway, Martinsville Speedway and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “I still remember the first time I saw Dover Speedway. … how the track seemed to jut out of the landscape and then the smell of the track and the sound of the cars taking their laps. I was an immediate goner,” she says.
At the beginning of the 2011 NASCAR season Carol created a blog called justdebris (justdebris.wordpress.com). An avid fan of Fantasy NASCAR, Carol hopes to help you groom your Fantasy NASCAR skills through the Shirts & Scuffs column NASCAR Fantasy Fusion.
Carol earned a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and a certificate in Women’s Studies from Penn State University.
