Hayden The Dog
CMRA racer Rich Wu of Edmond, Oklahoma--a suburb of Oklahoma City,about 80 miles from Hallett Motor Racing Circuit--sent in this photo of Hayden, a Westie/Jack Russell mix, along with a note:
"A couple of years ago I wanted a dog without the responsibility attached. After all, what racer has time to take care of a dog? So I told my girlfriend – 'you should get a dog.' She did…and I convinced her to name her after my favorite racer – Nicky Hayden. I wasn’t very forward-thinking as I now live with Hayden…."
Do you have a pet named after a famous racer, or know someone else who has a pet named after a famous racer?
Send an in-focus pet photo (as a jpeg file) along with the name of the pet and the name of their human or humans, to firstname.lastname@example.org . The photo may be featured on roadracingworld.com during slow news days.
