NASCAR dot com Turd Polish

I think the cold weather down here in Texas must have me a little bit gripey. I’m starting to feel my own negative vibe coming from my past few posts. I’ve got to wonder about my mood when 6 of my last 7 posts are tagged in either the ‘Rants‘ or ‘NA$CAR‘ categories. This actually […]

The Cingular Nextel Sponsorship Solution

I was just reading the latest on the quandary that Richard Childress Racing is in over the Cingular and AT&T merger. I think I may have the solution. If this little sponsorship issue isn’t on your radar, here it is in a nutshell. Pre-season 2004, Nextel buys into a 10-year contract with NASCAR for $700 […]

The NASCAR Star Parade

“I’m not impressed with all the name dropping and star strutting that Mr. NASCAR continues with each and every week. If you haven’t heard, the ‘big party’ in a couple of weeks will have none other than Nicolas Cage gracing us with his presence as the Grand Marshall of the Daytona 500. Big whoop-dee-doo. Excuse […]

Wow! Just finished watching ESPN Classic’s re-broadcast of the August 29, 1992 Budweiser 500 from Bristol Motor Speedway. What a great race.

Behind the scenes Lowes Motor Speedway

“I’ve been lovin’ me up some SPEEDtv these past couple of weeks. I attribute my prolific pre-season blogging to watching the various SPEEDtv broadcasts. I was too tightwad last year to increase my satellite package, thus relegated to only Sunday races. Now I’m in heaven. One show that’s really interesting is 7 Days. Through the […]

1977 Daytona 500

The Daytona 500 thirty years ago has glaring contrasts and similarities to the Daytona 500 run just last year. The 1977 Daytona 500 was won by Cale Yarborough. He was driving Junior Johnson’s #11 Holly Farms Chevrolet. Cale, and our ‘ol buddy Benny Parsons, were the only 2 drivers left on the lead lap. Cale […]

Daytona: Preseason Thunder Results

“A little late, but ready for consumption are the results from both sessions of preseason testing for the boys of the NASCAR Nextel Cup. I created these pages new, that’s why I’m a tad behind. They’re a little hidden away, but you can easily get to the NASCAR Daytona preseason testing results here. I’ve made […]
