Getting to watch your favorite NASCAR driver race in person is always a special treat, especially when he wins the race. But encountering that driver in a traffic jam after the race is a whole other experience.

Kyle Bush fan was on her way home from Martinsville Speedway in Virginia on Sunday after watching Bush win the STP 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race when she got the thrill of a lifetime:

NASCAR thrives on its relationship with fans and the class act by Bush all but completes the job of rehabilitating his image as one of the sport’s biggest villains just a few short years ago. A rehabilitation that made major strides last year after Bush came back from breaking both his right leg and left foot at Daytona to win the NASCAR championship.

Darienne Breazeale responded to Bush’s post — the video has been seen more than 8.5 million times — identifying herself as the woman in the video and she was just as excited in her commentary as she was in the video.

“I’m the one in the video Kyle!! You absolutely made my life!” Breazeale wrote. I couldn’t have asked for anything better to happen to me!! I am your absolute biggest fan and always will be! It was amazing to see you win twice this weekend!!! Absolutely amazing!!”

Bush also won Saturday’s NCTWS 250 Camping World Truck Series race.
