RIDGEWAY, Va. (April 5, 2016) – A NASCAR fan got the surprise of a lifetime when she realized she was riding right next to Kyle Busch.

The diehard van did a double-take and screamed when she realized the NASCAR driver was in the car next to her as she was leaving Martinsville Speedway Sunday. Busch had just won the race.

He didn’t get a response when he honked his horn and waved at the fan. Then he rolled down the window and delivered a memorable moment.

“Oh my God! It’s (expletive) him!” the woman, who was wearing a Kyle Busch hat, yelled.

Busch replied, “How are you?”

“I freaking love y’all!” the woman replied.

Busch then asked for her hat, and she gladly handed it over so he could sign it.

“You are freaking awesome!”

Busch posted video of the encounter on his Facebook page. A woman named Darienne Breazeale posted in the comments that she was the one in the video:

I’m the one in the video Kyle! You absolutely made my life! 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
