My name is Krysta and I’m from Plymouth, Massachusetts, yes where the Pilgrims landed in 1620. I’m 26 years old and have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Bridgewater State University. I currently work full time in the student financial services department at a local community college.
My dad has always been a huge race fan so I started off watching it when I was younger. I even attended a race at Pocono and toured Daytona. However, as I became a teenager I got “too cool” for racing and stopped watching completely. In 2013 a friend asked me to join his Fantasy Nascar league with Yahoo racing. Even though I hadn’t watched racing in a number of years I agreed. From that moment on I was hooked and determined to win the league. I have been a race fan ever since and oh by the way, I did win our Fantasy league that year!
When I first started watching again I wasn’t sure what driver I wanted to support. I leaned toward the younger generation of drivers, because let’s be honest, they’re cute. I started supporting Joey Logano because he was a fellow New Englander but soon began to take notice of his teammate Brad Keselowski. There was something about Brad that drew me in and made me want to learn more about him. It could have been his reputation as “Bad Brad” (which is a completely false representation of him by the way), his determination to work with his team for better results or his drive to have a successful business venture for his truck program, Brad Keselowski Racing. No matter the reason, I have been a huge fan of Brad for about 2-2 ½ seasons now with no end in sight.
I love to attend races and most frequently attended race weekends at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. I attended the Sprint Unlimited in February of 2016 and completely fell in love with Daytona. This is also where I got to meet Brad for the first time. He was super polite and gladly took a selfie with me. Our picture even ended up on Fox Sports 1! I also love to travel and have plans to attend the June race weekend at Pocono this year. I love country music and you can usually find me at a few concerts a year. My favorites include Kenny Chesney, Florida Georgia Line and Carrie Underwood. Aside from that I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
