It’s been 90 days since a NASCAR race and 161 days since I’ve watched one. I’m still miffed at NASCAR because of all the bullshit at the end of September’s Richmond race.
I’m still pissed because Richard Childress Racing is bringing back the “3” car; a number that, in my opinion, should have been retired on February 18th of 2001 when Dale Earnhardt died in that car.
The season unofficially begins tonight at Daytona with the Sprint Unlimited, which is merely a preseason money race to kick off what’s known as Speedweeks in Daytona. Qualifying for the front row is tomorrow, qualifying for the other 41 cars is Thursday and the 56th Daytona 500 is next Sunday.
Danica Patrick, who sucks at racing, will be in tonight’s race.
It’s sorta funny, the
winningest biggest cheater in NASCAR history, Richard Petty, put dear Danica on blast this past week, saying she would win a race if “Everybody else stayed home.” He also said:
If she’d have been a male, nobody would ever know if she’d showed up at a racetrack.This is a female deal that’s driving her. There’s nothing wrong with that, because that’s good PR for me. More fans come out, people are more interested in it. She has helped to draw attention to the sport, which helps everybody in the sport.
Dear Danica responded by saying, in part:
There’s still stuff that I look underneath the hood and I really don’t know what I’m looking at.
Anyway, instead of watching NASCAR tonight, I recommend you check out the Olympics! Tonight’s coverage features Alpine Skiing, Short Track, Speed Skating, Ski Jumping and Skeleton! Sounds awesome to me!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend folks!
