Dale Jarrett Racing School

I’ve been going to races for 35 years and never been in a car on the track. I’ve dreamt about it. I suppose most race fans have. I received an email from the Dale Jarrett Racing School asking if I was interested in blogging about their race school. I make no secret I’m a huge […]

Say What? Ricky Rudd & David Gilliland

“They say that “A picture is worth a 1000 words.” But sometimes, I’m more interested in just what it was that they were saying. David: “Go ahead and look in the trunk Ricky. I swear I ate all of them. I don’t have any more M&M’s.”

Say What? Mike Helton & Dale Jarrett

Say What? Jeff Burton & Ward Burton

“They say that ‘A picture is worth a 1000 words.’ But sometimes, I’m more interested in just what it was that they were saying. Jeff Burton: “The idea is to go as fast as you can on that qualifying lap. Then they will let you race in the race on Sunday.” Ward Burton: “Gribble-grabble-hmmm-hmm” What […]

NASCAR 2007 Badboys: #1

“My NASCAR Bad Boy Moment™ #1 of the 2007 NASCAR season goes to Nextel. #1: Nextel Bullies Sponsors Yep, that’s right. I think the biggest Bad Boy of the 2007 NASCAR season is none other than the series sponsor. I’ll label their dastardliness as actions detrimental to stock car racing sponsorship under section 12-4-A-OBW of […]
