Dave Thompson, follow me @phillyfan17

Dave has been a long time fan of NASCAR but his passion for the sport catapulted after attending his first live race in 2007. His first attempt was washed out by rain at Richmond International Raceway. Four weeks later, another attempt was again washed out by rain at Dover. Determined to break the curse, Dave returned on Monday solo to watch Martin Truex Jr., win the first race of his Cup career. He was hooked after that and has attended over 60 races since breaking the curse.

Along with his passion for NASCAR, Dave is a huge fan of hockey, football and college basketball. He is a diehard fan of the Philadelphia Flyers and may even be seen at a track wearing the black and orange.

Dave is a technical person by trade and has spent the last 25 years working in the U.S. Air Force, Department of Defense and a few telecommunication providers as a Network Engineer and IT Specialist. In addition to work and sports, he enjoys photography in his spare time.
