Buying gifts for the race fan in your life is not exactly hard. There are lots of products out here that any fan would love to have. There are just a few things you need to know before shopping.

Driver Loyalty – Most NASCAR fans are loyal to at least one driver possibly even two or more. What makes a fan loyal to a driver? Well that depends on the fan. Some decide loyalty based on nothing more than the manufacturer of the driver's car. For others it may be a driver they grew up watching, a driver they watched climb up through the ranks of NASCAR or a driver may be from their hometown. What ever it is that makes a fan cheer on his favorite and boo a competitor isn't as important as knowing who the fan is rooting for on race day.

Of course for some fans it isn't about who they want to win as much as it is who they don't want to finish first. You never want to make the mistake of giving them a gift from a driver or team they don't like. A lot of NASCAR fans feel as strongly about the driver they dislike as the one they like.

So before you head off to buy that gift for the NASCAR fan make sure you know what driver is okay to buy and which ones to avoid.

Know the Driver – Gift ideas are going to be easier to find for some NASCAR drivers than others. Some drivers have a name that is recognized immediately, these are the ones you will have no trouble finding gifts ideas for the race fan from. It's the driver that is just starting out or isn't as popular you are going to have to search a little harder for. Also keep in mind that drivers often change teams or sponsors so don't rely on looking for certain colors to recognize a driver, check the name also. In 2008 Dale Earnhardt Jr. went from driving the number 8 Budweiser car which is red to driving the number 88 Mountain Dew Amp/National Guard car which is either green and white or blue and white. Kasey Kane now drive the number 9 Budweiser car.
