Parents Name Baby Chevy Dale Karr (You already guessed which state)
PLANT CITY - Roger Karr Jr.s first wheels were a Chevy El Camino. In fact, hes driven nothing but Chevys ever since.

So it seemed only fitting that he named his first-born son after his favorite brand of car, with the name of his favorite NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. thrown in for good measure.

Chevy Dale Karr arrived at Brandon Regional Hospital on June 13.

His father had been mulling over names for months, ever since a sonogram confirmed the baby was a boy.

I wanted something interesting, the young father of two said of the moniker.

3. Guess I assumed it was Michigan where they used to make Chevies...
...and maybe still do.

The article does not indicate the state, though it does say that the father was in Alabama as a youngster and that the newspaper is in Tampa, presumably in Florida.

4. The kid dodged a bullet
His old man could've been a fan of Dick Trickle.

8. Well, I don't know about that.
I'm pretty sure they can't trademark just "Dale."

10. I one was a bouncer in a bar in Plant City FL - tough town
if the kids there didn't get into a fight when they went out on the weekend, they didn't think they had a very good time.

12. If he had been born just two days earlier, the parents might have named him "Bud"
What a major f-up that would have been.

NASCAR fans should get it.

14. freaking bizarre
name your kid after a car? some messed up priorities there, exactly backwards at the least. I didn't guess the state right, I thought it could be just about any state in the south, or texas, or even the mid-west, lol.
