Nascar's Carl Edwards


It's always fascinating to see purportedly straight male-oriented sports magazines just go straight for the beefcake, which ESPN has this month. I've never been a huge fan of NASCAR racing but I've got a feeling they're about to get a bunch of new fans because of this trip to the body shop.

  1. Jeff Gordon has a huge gay following. As a result there is a backlash against him with a group called FAG Fans Against Gordon. This guy is hotter

  5. ESPN has a huge female audience. I did some clerical stuff for EPSN related to their 2X Anniversary and, it is really amazing to see what ESPN's fan base is like. I mean, women saying the first thing they do when they wake up is to check ESPN?

    As I recall, all of NASCAR is essentially controlled by one family. I'm thinking that the Photo is directed at women in an effort to move NASCAR beyond its current base of fans. As I understand it, pretty boys don't do well with the NASCAR male fans. I heard so much hostility towards this one young good-looking driver (Jeff Gordon I think) on ESPN video tape of male NASCAR fans and, it all seemed based on the fact that the guy was good looking (and young).

    If anything, a beefcake photo of a driver will hurt a driver with the male NASCAR guys.

  8. I have to say that I like NASCAR a lot. When I lived in Alabama we would go to Talladega for every race. It was always a blast; much better in person than on TV. If you ever get the chance to go, try it, especially if it is a restrictor-plate race.

    And, oh my yes, Mr. Edwards is welcomed to the track. They didn't have folks like him when I was going. Actually, the people watching was just as much fun, but for the opposite reasons. Some of the strangest, ugliest folks you'll ever see.

  12. Yes, NASCAR has a white trash, redneck following, but it also has a big gay following. And, not just because of Jeff Gordon. I run an online discussion group for GLBT fans of the sport and the tastes in drivers runs the gamut. But yes, Carl is certainly one of the most popular. Glad to see Andy took the time to post his pic, as well as shed light on an oft overlooked sport and it's gay connection. Thanks, Andy!

  14. I lived down near Daytona Beach for a while. NASCAR people creep me out; nothing more than stoopid white Hooter-loving trailer trash. Them and this new age of idiot bikers that need to emblazen OCC everywhere.

    I knew several gay men who followed Jeff Gordon, always lamenting that the rainbow he painted on his car had the wrong sequence of colors.

    Welcome to the Bush base.

  17. Andy? Is your mom a big NASCAR fan, or is she trying to marry you off?

    My mom keeps suggesting "older, professional men" for me. Never anybody hot.

    LOL @ mothers. Gotta luv 'em.

  18. As the only female DJ at a country station it was learn to love NASCAR or leave. Now I go to at least 2 races a season, usuall with "hot passes" which allow you into the pits with the cars running and the drivers in the garages. These men are nummy! You should see some of the guys working behind the scenes! No wonder it's one of the fastest growing spectator sports in the country! Give me some sunscreen, and I'm set!

  19. ok I hate to break it to you people who think that all nascar fans are white trash, but anyone who has envested any money in the sport is loaded, I live in charlotte, and the richest people I know, the classest people I know from there are all nascar fans/are invested in the sport, so not white trash( and going to every race like most fans here do is not cheep) and damn Carl is hot, check out some of the other drivers too, there is a whole new hot generation.

  21. Oh yeah whew Carl Edwards! He is one sexy man and one of my favorites. My #1 favorite just happens to be Jeff Gordon, I disagree, he is just as good looking!

  22. Let me just say,Carl Edwards,WOW!!!!

  23. I've been a Nascar fan since before I could walk. Last year my driver decided to retire so I had to pick out someone new. I liked how Carl handled himself and his race car.
    Then I seen the magazine cover... If I hadn't been a fan anyway.. I'd have had to rethink it!
    Yum E!
