Skirts and Scuffs Fan Spotlight from Kansas Speedway: Kim Olsen

Race Fans, I would like to introduce you to this weekend's fan, Kim Olsen, spotlighted at Kansas Speedway.

Kim is originally from Des Moines, Iowa but has resided in the "Sunflower State" for the past 11 years. She became a NASCAR fan while growing up because her father and brothers closely followed the sport. After taking a brief hiatus from watching racing, Kansas Speedway was built and Kim's interest was once again sparked.

Initially, she was placed on a list for about five years before being able to get race tickets. Kim's brother would give up his Nationwide ticket for her to attend those races at the track.

"First time I came, I was hooked and I've been coming every since. Season ticket holders for about eight years."

Twitter Handle: @kansaskim88

Favorite Driver(s): Dale Earnhardt Jr. and reigning Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski

What Kim likes about Skirts and Scuffs? "I just like reading about everything that is going on. You all keep everybody up to date. You know especially the female thing which NASCAR doesn't really cater to, so that is awesome."

I would like to thank her for taking time to take a part in this weekend's Skirts and Scuffs Fan Spotlight column.
