Famous NASCAR Driver Dog Name Considerations

The biggest initial consideration is whether or not the name is being chosen for you or your dog. If it’s for you, then rest assured it will be perfectly suitable to select a name from one of your favorite NASCAR drivers and just start calling them by your chosen name. However, if you plan on choosing a name that has a bit more depth and is a little more personally tailored to your canine companion, there are a few different ways you can approach it. 

You can always take their looks into consideration. For instance, both Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt had distinct mustaches, so if your dog happens to as well, Petty and Earnhardt would both make great names. 

Personality can be a great way to go. Guys like Benny Parsons had a big heart, so if your dog does too, it might make a good fit. The same holds true for Gentleman Ned, who got his nickname for good reason, so if your Pug is perfectly patient and well-behaved, there you go. On the other hand, if they have big egos they like to march around, maybe Rowdy or Busch, after Kyle Busch, would be more suitable. 

Whatever you choose, don’t feel limited to the ideas we’ve laid out here. In fact, they don’t even have to be famous. You can always just roll with a favorite since, you never know, they might become famous anyway.
