DID YOU KNOW?...

Joseph says "I was born and raised in Talladega, and have lived here my entire life. I was an avid Davey Allison fan growing up and I have gone to at least one race a year at Talladega Superspeedway since 1990. I have been married for 12 years to my wife Julie and we have three kids: Katie (age 11), Mychal, pronounced Michael, (age 8), and Vincent (age 7). We spend a lot of our free family time traveling to either Knoxville/Gatlinburg/Great Smoky Mountains or to Alabama's Beaches several times a year, or out on a fishing trip. Other than a racing fan, I am an avid Tennessee Vols and Indianapolis Colts football fan. I am a Horror film fanatic and have visited sites near me where some of my favorite films have been made, and attend a Horror/Sci-Fi Convention every year in Pigeon Forge, TN."
