The shrill sound of this adorable fan’s scream could have been heard for miles!

But it was warranted, because she just met her favorite NASCAR driver, Kyle Busch.

“Stop it!” and “Oh my gosh!” were a few of the exclamatory phrases being shouted from this “Rowdy Nation” super fan’s camper as the driver of the No. 18 M&Ms car approached in his yellow fire suit near the site of Sunday’s Daytona 500 in Florida. (Rowdy is Kyle’s nickname, for those who may not be fans.)

“I’ve always wanted to do this,” she told Kyle. “My birthday is the 24th [and] every year I put sand in my living room.”

Bless her heart! Girl’s just trying to get to Daytona Beach.

She finally made it, and we think Kyle was just as excited as she was.

He needs this kind of hype in his life, because he’s going all in for 2018. There’s even a hashtag cheering him on: #18n18.

Check out this insane helmet Kyle will be wearing during the upcoming season.

“Ready for action!” one photo of the helmet is captioned. So are the fans. One commented, “Yup, definitely his year … Go get ’em Kyle!”

Kyle definitely has his eye on the prize this year. In 2015, he clinched the NASCAR Cup Series Championship and he’s ready for another. So count on No. 18 going all in when the Daytona 500 airs this weekend.

It’s going to be a huge day: Rascal Flatts is set to perform a pre-race concert, Dale Earnhardt Jr. will serve as the official Grand Marshal, NFL legend Peyton Manning will drive the pace car and Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron will wave the green flag to get it all started!

We can practically hear those engines already rumbling. Can you feel the excitement? Our goal is to get as excited as that sweet fan who got to meet Kyle.

The Daytona 500 airs Sunday, Feb. 18 beginning at 1:30 p.m. on FOX.
