If you didn't know already, I'm huge NASCAR fan. Like, so huge that I can't bear to watch from all the stress. Yeah, that's what it is. That's the reason I don't watch NASCAR.
Regardless of my sports-viewing, there are plenty of Ricks that do pay attention to NASCAR. Take for example, Rick Hendrick (fun fact: his real name is Joseph Riddick Hendrick. I almost like that better. Riddick!), owner of Hendrick Motorsports. He is a retired racecar driver himself, and father of Ricky Hendrick, a driver who died in a plane crash in 2004.
Apparently, there's a thing called the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Collector Car Auction (Trying saying that three times fast) that recently happened. This year was the 12th edition of this auction, and Rick was in a good mood. He dropped a cool one million on the first 2015 Corvette Z06 Stingray. That seems like a lot of money to me, but probably not to Rick. He did the same thing last year for the 2014 Corvette coupe.
One additional note is that the money is going to the Karmanos Cancer Institute, so it's money for a good cause.
