(Nashville, Tennessee...) - Redneck Records artist Gretchen Wilson has been a racing fan ever since her uncle raced dirt tracks back in Illinois.

Gretchen hung out in Mark Martin's pit for the majority of Sunday's Aaron's 499 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race and stood at the wall to see first-hand how to change four tires and add fuel in less than 15 seconds. She was also invited to watch the race on Martin's pit box, which gave her a great vantage point to view the action and listen to the communications between Martin and his crew chief.
