I'm not extremely into Nascar but I certainly have a relative or 2 who is CRAZY about it. I've bought Nascar model kits as gifts and they've been very popular. But here's a funny side story:
I was invited to a White Elephant party where I had to bring a random gift that was kind of useless and kind of funny. So I brought a Nascar model kit I had bought for my nephew but hadn't sent yet (I bought him another one). It was a Dale Earnhardt model and everyone at the party was quite tickled with it. No one there was into Nascar, so it was funny.

“Everyone loved my White Elephant Nascar model kit.”
I remember watching my older brother build model cars when we were little. He'd let me help... sometimes. The pieces are so tiny and intricate, I never had the patience to do it, but I wanted to do whatever he did.
Model building kits are a great way for kids to connect with someone they love and trust. When it's a parent, it's a really healthy way to build communication skills between the two. Life gets really hectic when you're a parent, so what better way to learn new things about your kid!
