Now when I watch the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, I see rich value in it. Not from all the sponsors and where money comes from or the talent. I look for the personality in it. Jordan Anderson to be specific. A 25 year old Camping World Truck Series driver from Forest Acres, South Carolina. Who on Saturday was collected in an on track racing incident and his only Truck to race with all year. Which is shame because he is a really polite humble guy. I've never met him, but the reason I took to him well is because of that. That's what it takes for me to be a true fan. Ones that I can relate. Same reason I'm a fan of Logano. Logano and I are about the same age. When the Kenseth/Logano incident happened at Martinsville I felt for Logano. I know what it's like being the young guy doing the right thing and you're trying to respectful, but everyone wants to ignore that. Now obviously The same incident didn't happen to Jordan as it did to Joey. Jordan Anderson being only one Truck for the whole is the epitome of an underdog story. It's an operation like the local dirt track drivers go through having the same car every week, but in this case it's on a grand scale with limited resources and money. One and done is nothing but heart brake for the rest of the season. Week in and week out he does his job to entertain his fans with both personality and talent and shows respect to his fellow drivers. Giving them room here and there to live onto the next event. His gift of racing in the third tier series is what you can call "fragile". Unfortunately for Anderson it's went from that to broken because of one race. Being the underdog and having one to root for just like him gives the lower series life and makes you forget the same winners whether it being Cup or Xfinity drivers. He's also very engaging with his followers on twitter. He says very positive things to his fans with the return of the respect factor that gives them a reason to watch him run. With no truck to drive it's likely his season is over unless a miracle happens to where he can get it fixed. I certainly hope that he does get something going to where we can see him continue and this along with many other writers in media like me that this doesn't define his season.
