NASCAR Headstone

There's a legal battle brewing between a big NASCAR fan's family and an Indianapolis church over a man's fandom as he rests in peace.

FOX News Radio's Chris Hoenig has the story:

NASCAR drivers and fans share a mutual admiration.

(Kenseth) "Thank you everybody, fans!  Thanks for picking us..."

...Like Matt Kenseth this weekend on FOX Sports.  So when Jason Carr passed on to that big garage in the sky, his wife decided to honor him the best way she knows how: a headstone designed around his favorite things.

It's shaped like a couch, with images of a deer and a dog, and color Colts and NASCAR logos - costing nearly $10,000.

But St. Joseph Catholic Church in Indianapolis is waving the red flag, saying the headstone doesn't fit with the secular nature of their cemetery.  Carr's widow says in the lawsuit that they didn't tell her this until a year after her husband died in 2009, the Church says that's not true.
