The End of an Era

Today is kind of a sad day for me. It is Dale Earnhardt Jr’s last race as a NASCAR Cup driver. He is retiring from driving full time in the Cup series after this season ends, and today is the last race of the season. I started watching NASCAR during the 2000 season, which was … Continue Reading

My 2015 Chase Grid

It’s that time of year again. The Chase is starting this weekend. I should probably put together my Chase grid. I didn’t do very well last year, and I probably won’t even come close to getting it right this year. But it is kinda fun to figure out who I think is going to win. … Continue Reading

Our Government Hard at Work

While reading my tweets on my lunch break, I ran across a tweet by Nate Ryan about a House rep from MN proposing an amendment related to NASCAR. MILITARY MUSIC/NASCAR — Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.) has a pair of amendments that would prevent the military from advertising on NASCAR vehicles and limit to $200 million … Continue Reading

Aggressive vs. Tantrum

If you know me (either IRL or online), you know that I’m a NASCAR fan. I am a passionate NASCAR fan. I am a fan of Dale Earnhardt Jr, Martin Truex Jr, Brad Keselowski, Paul Menard, and Scott Riggs. I will always stand behind my drivers, but if they do something stupid, I’ll call ’em … Continue Reading

Open letter to ESPN

RE: NASCAR race coverage To whom it may concern: We need to talk about the quality of your coverage of the Nationwide series and Sprint Cup series race broadcasts. I can sum the broadcasts up in one word: POOR. You really need to improve the quality of the broadcasts. You are managing to piss off … Continue Reading

Who makes these decisions?

If I don’t write this post, I think I am going to explode. I’ll give you a heads up saying that this is not going to be a happy post. LOL Anyone who knows me knows that I am a NASCAR fan. I don’t miss a race unless there is absolutely no way to watch … Continue Reading

Not a good start

I mentioned yesterday that I found out that my name is on Dale Earnhardt Jr’s car for this weekend’s race. I’m still giddy just thinking about it. But I hope I didn’t jinx Jr by my name being on the car. During the first practice today, he had engine issues, and they had to change … Continue Reading

FOX has their head up their *bleep*

:soapbox: This weekend is the first nite of the 2008 NASCAR season. I was excited. I love nite racing. But the nite started off on a bad note. First, FOX decided to start the pre-race before it was even scheduled to come on. And then, they leave the broadcast right before the race was supposed … Continue Reading
