Sexy Saturday ~ For Once, an Ass I Don’t Like!

Outside of a great personality, a sense of humor, loyalty, honesty, generosity, etc…

Pink Ass

…I sure do like a fantastic ass on a woman. Definitely my favorite physical feature!

As everyone knows, you just can’t be critical of any woman’s ass, at least not out loud!

So let’s shift gears a bit today and be critical of an ass that really doesn’t look too good.

That would be the 2015 Mustang. I’ve been seeing spy photos of this thing for the last year or so and haven’t been very impressed, because I really like the current body style..

2014 Front

… nice from the front…

2014 Rear

… and equally nice from the rear! It certainly isn’t as sexy as Eleanor, though it bears some resemblance…

Eleanor

Okay. I take that back! Not even close!

Ford has decided to mangle rework the body of the 2015, or 6th generation, Mustang.

I scraped some pictures of the thing from Ford’s website! So here goes…

wheel-detail

 

… the rims are definitely pretty!

The speedometer shows your ground speed which is nice!

One thing I’ve struggled with is the new front end treatment.

front-end-tarmac

It looks a lot like a Fusion.

Fusion Front

C’mon, Ford, why make your sports car, the ultimate pony car, look like a grocery go getter? I understand a lot of automakers like to make their entire lineup look similar, but the real hot cars, like the Mustang, should stand out from the rest of the cars on the lot!

I have warmed up to this car a bit because, shot from the right angle, anything can look decent.

I just don’t like the ass end of this car for some reason.

desert-rear

It looks squashed and slanted all weird!

I like what ya did with the body lines and rear quarter flares but ya totally screwed up the rear treatment for this car Ford…

1965 Mustang

Now that’s a nice lookin’ ass! Remember that, Ford, when you re-engineer this car in several months because sales are down!

Other notable Mustangs for Sexy Saturday?

John Force’s, who is leading the NHRA Championship…

John Force Night

… or Trevor Bayne’s Mustang which is tied for the NASCAR Nationwide Series lead…

Bayne

… Even Carl Edwards’ Fusion is leading NASCAR’s premier Sprint Cup Series!

Edwards Fusion

… so Ford is kicking ass in all forms of four wheel motorsports!

Anyway… that is all the sexy Ford I can handle right now…

For the women, and men who like men, here’s the Australian engineered and Canadian built Holden car that Chevy likes to call a Camaro…

2010 Chevrolet Camaro

Not a Chevrolet… Not a Camaro until at least 2015 when it might be built here in the states!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks!

Dale Earnhardt… April 29th, 1951 ~ February 18th, 2001…

Dale Earnhardt Shades

On the final turn of the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500, Dale Earnhardt passed away from injuries suffered in what appeared to be a “routine” crash…

NASCAR really hasn’t been the same since that day 13 years ago…

I present to you the tribute video from the 2001 NASCAR awards ceremony featuring Garth Brooks who is, somehow, still relevant today. It’s an emotional video…

… I encourage you to watch all 10 1/2 minutes… definitely touching even though I can’t stand that jackass, Brian Williams…

R.I.P. Intimidator…

What to Watch Tonight Instead of NASCAR!

Sochi Toilets

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.

Danica Makeup

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.

Dumbass!

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!

Navigating the road with other “Drivers”….

I consider myself an above average driver. In almost 24 years of driving I’ve lost control of my vehicle only twice; both times before the age of 18 and both times in this wonderful Ohio snow.

The first time, I think I was 16, I was driving my girlfriend home in a pretty good snowstorm and up ahead I saw what I thought was a raccoon or something… I swerved around it, it was actually a plastic bag, and the car turned sideways into a ditch…

The second time, and I believe it was only a few months later so maybe I was 17, my buddy Vince and I were coming back after tearing down the audio at the end of a wedding reception (Vince and I would help his girlfriend’s Dad, a DJ, set up his equipment before wedding receptions and then tear it down after) in a blizzard and I lost it in the snow, turning the front end of the car into the guardrail, effectively killing it!

Since then, all of my cars have been safe and uncrashed…. that includes an ’87 Mustang, a ’93 Mustang ragtop…

Mustang

…a ’97 F-150, an ’01 Focus, an ’03 Taurus (man I miss my Fords!) and my current ’08 Jetta!

Nowadays, cruisin’ around town is basically an exercise in protecting my Jetta, and its contents, from idiotic drivers on the road! Here are some types of drivers that aggravate me the most… in no particular order…

  1. What’s a Turn Signal? ~ These drivers are extremely dangerous! They’ll be driving ahead of me and, out of the blue, stab the brakes at a side street and turn! Every time, I’m like, “JESUS” and wanna chase ’em and wreck ’em! A variant of this type is the “late turn signal” driver. They’ll jam on the brakes, then hit the turn signal. I wanna hurt those ones too! What’s a Turn Signal?s also create mayhem where 4-way stop signs are involved.
  2. Slow Poke ~ These are usually old people. They go 17 in a 35 zone and hit the brakes every 12 seconds for some reason. Slow Pokes are usually a polar opposite to What’s a Turn Signal?s as they’ll hit the turn signal about 3 miles before they actually turn!
  3. The Accelerator ~ Grrrr… these ones really piss me off! They’re usually young punks in pimped out Asian cars. When turning onto a street, I see the oncoming car is about 300 feet away, so I turn in front of them… AND THEY ACCELERATE to ride up on my ass even though I turned with more than enough room! To combat those douchebags, oftentimes I’ll slow down and just let’em ride on my ass or, for even more fun, I’ll turn on my turn signal for a bit so they’ll fall back, then turn it off… Repeat… Repeat… A word of caution: NEVER brake check anyone, especially The Accelerator, because they’ll rear end you and ruin your shit!
  4. The Brake Checker ~ This is usually The Accelerator drivin’ slow in their cheap ass slammed Civic, thinkin’ people are checkin’ it out, though it can even be a Slow Poke… either way, if ya get too close they stand on the brakes with both feet hoping you rear end ’em. I’ve never met a The Brake Checker I didn’t want to decapitate!
  5. The Teenager ~ Need I say more? The only thing in their car they know how to operate is their cell phone.

That summarizes all the idiocy I encounter just driving around town… Once on the turnpike, the dynamic changes. See, I make pretty regular trips out to Hanover, PA, so I spend a lot of time on the Pennsylvania and Ohio turnpikes… Here are those offenders…

  1. Holiday Drivers ~ These drivers have no clue. Left lane, center lane, right lane… it doesn’t matter! They’re all over the freakin’ highway, normally changing Spongebob Squarepants DVDs for their kids while not paying attention to the road. The only times I’ve seen accidents on the turnpikes is around a holiday. Go figure…
  2. High Speed Lane Hoggers ~ These are the idiots who get in the left lane and set their cruise at the posted speed limit, which nobody adheres to! Holiday Drivers always do this because they don’t understand that whole “slower traffic stay to the right” thing. When it’s not a holiday, Michigan and Indiana drivers are the biggest offenders…
  3. Low Speed Lane Hoggers ~ These fuckers hang in the right lane at about 140 miles an hour. They’re usually from The Accelerator crowd…
  4. Drowsy Truck Drivers ~ Need I say more? These dudes are either extremely tired or gettin’ a blow job from the girl they picked up at the last rest stop. Either way, they drift off the side of the road and hit the rumble strips for a quarter mile; then wave at me when I accelerate past them!
  5. Multiple Lane Changers ~ Drift across lanes with no apparent agenda! I’m actually one of these while avoiding all of the above…!
  6. Those Not Ready to Pay their Toll ~ Holy shit, idiot… when you got on the turnpike, you received a ticket that said how much it would cost you to exit that turnpike. You knew 236 miles ago that you had to pay $21.15 to get off, yet you get to the toll booth and dig through your purse for 7 minutes to scrounge up the cash. Fuck you! You are wasting my very valuable time…

I’m sure I’ve forgotten something, but this is what I’ve got for now….

~ Until we meet again…

Danica Said She Wasn’t That Tight Sunday ~ The Immature Giggled Uncontrollably!

Danica Tight

Oh yes! I count myself as one of those immature NASCAR fans!

See, Danica, you sort of need to work on your post race/crash interviews and use the proper verbiage so those of us whose mentality can devolve to that of a 13 year old boy throughout the course of a race have nothing to pick on you for!

I actually felt bad for Danica Sunday at Phoenix. She never really ran well after struggling in practice and qualifying, but on lap 184, her right front tire blew causing the car to hit the wall hard, bouncing off of it and taking out David Ragan in the process…

Danica Phoenix Crash

… And then she said in the post crash interview, “I wasn’t that tight either….” I knew exactly what she was talking about but I giggled nonetheless!

Danica, you have to say THE CAR wasn’t that tight, dear! Thank God you didn’t merely describe yourself as loose!

~ NASCAR Lingo Time ~

“Tight” is a condition in which, as much as a driver tries to turn, the car doesn’t want to. The opposite of “tight” is, in fact, “loose” and means the car turns fine, too much actually, and feels like the ass end is gonna come around into a spin…

What happened to Danica Sunday happens to a lot of rookie drivers (and veterans, too, who have ill handling cars)… She wasn’t comfortable with the way her car was handling, so she pushed it on the straightaways and punished the brakes in the corners. This type of driving causes the brakes to get extremely hot and, ultimately, melt the tire right off the rim. That’s what happened to Danica, and coincidentally, her teammate Ryan Newman. Who knows, maybe Danica’s car had the same setup under it as Newman.

Anyway… the crash relegated Danica to a 39th (of 43) place finish. Not too good after her “historical” 8th place finish at Daytona just a week before.

Oh and guess what? I switched drivers this year, dumping Carl Edwards to follow Brad Keselowski in the Miller Lite Ford. So of course, Edwards won the race in dominating fashion after leading 122 laps…

Edwards Phoenix Win

… and that’s his post race back flip! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike Edwards… I’ve just moved on to a more exciting race car driver in Brad!

It’s Not about Race You Idiot! It’s about Racin’!

Antron Brown

I know, I KNOW… I posted about drag racin’ just this morning, but THIS article came up in my newsfeed and it features a video about current NHRA top fuel champion, Antron Brown. I have no intention of making this blog only about drag racing, ’cause I’d rather look up and post stuff like this…

… that’s Brooklyn Decker by the way… she’s sort of a model…

But go to the link above to watch the video I’m all pissed about…

In short, the video is sold as Antron being the first African American to ever win a motorsports championship in America. He is… but Antron’s never been about race… just racing! He’s no different than any other race car driver… he grew up in a racing family and ultimately reached the pinnacle…. this past year!

It’s sorta funny…. when you watch the video, race never comes up in the conversation between Antron and the interviewer, though the voiceover from the interviewer makes it about race. Also notice how the interviewer seems to slight the women and Hispanic drivers in the series early on in the video…

So who’s racist? Definitely the media… because they didn’t give two shits about Antron Brown until he kicked ass this past season…

Again… Antron is and always has been a race car driver first! Hell… I’ve followed him for years from when he drove those crazy ass pro stock motorcycles and he never talked about race!

I met Antron shortly after I took the picture at the top of this post… he asked if I had family at the race and thanked us for coming out… and was an awesome dude…

… Just like all the drivers… because that’s what he is.. A top tier driver in the NHRA.

Forget Lent! The NHRA Season Starts Tomorrow!

Ya know what I’m giving up for Lent? I’m giving up leaving the TV off all day because there are no sports on! 

I know… Super Bowl XLVII, that’s 47 for those of you who don’t know, was just last week, but that was only one game in 14 days! By the way, I bet the NFL drops the Roman numerals soon, because in 3 years I really don’t expect them to call it “Super Bowl L”… as in LOSER!

Have no fear, folks, ’cause racin’ is back! That’s right… The NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) 2013 Mello Yello Series rolls into Pomona, CA on Valentine’s Day tomorrow. This will serve as a primer of sorts for the upcoming season.

For starters… What is drag racing?

Simply put, it’s an acceleration contest. Two drivers stage, in separate lanes, before what is called the Christmas Tree, I guess because it has a lot of lights on it…

NHRA Christmas Tree

… Not counting the individual LEDs, there are 42 lighting elements on that thing! The only ones that count are the green ones, however, because that means GO! But there’s a system in place… The Christmas Tree works from top to bottom. As the drivers approach the start line the front tires of their cars will break two beams that are fired across the track. The first beam broken is “pre-stage,” about 7 inches before the start line and will light the top half of the blue circle on top. The second beam broken is “stage” and will light the bottom half of the blue circle. Once the entire circle is lit, the driver is at the start line; and when both drivers are staged the lights bisecting the blue circle will light and the tree is active. Since I’m talking about the NHRA here I’ll describe what happens next in that sense. The three amber lights will come on simultaneously, followed by the green light 0.4 seconds later. That means GO! The only time you’ll see a red light lit is if a driver goes before the green light comes on. When they do that they are disqualified!

Damn… I just wrote almost 200 words describing the start of a drag race! In short it goes like this: BLUE. AMBER. HOLY SHIT GREEN MASH THE GAS GO GO GO!

Once the gas is mashed, other beams fired across the track record the following:

Reaction Time: Time from green light to vehicle movement. This is huge and is the difference in a lot of races! More on this in a bit..

60 feet time…

330 feet time…

660 feet or 1/8th mile time…

1/8th mile speed…

1000 feet time… more on this later…

1/4 mile time…

Final MPH…

The first vehicle across the finish line wins!

Prior to the race the drivers perform what is called a burnout…

The burnout serves three purposes.

  1. Clean the tires.
  2. Heat up the tires.
  3. Add a fresh layer of rubber to the racing surface.

Speaking of the racing surface… Holy shit is it sticky! I’ve walked the track at Norwalk Raceway Summit Motorsports Park and both times my sandals Jesus slippers stuck to the track and were removed from my feet! The NHRA applies a compound, known as VHT TrackBite Concentrate, to the racing surface that increases the traction of the race cars’ tires.

What’s the true distance of the race?

Drag racing has been based on the quarter mile (1,320 feet) for pretty much ever. Back on June 21st of 2008, however, Scott Kalitta died in a horrific crash during qualifying (you will begin to cry at the :20 mark)…

… That made the NHRA change the distance the top two classes race to 1,000 feet instead of the aforementioned 1,320 feet… for safety purposes…. The following video will make you cry again… because it’s the next day’s race between John Force Racing’s Robert Hight and his would be opponent…the late Scott Kalitta… Hight merely idles his race car down the track in a tribute to Scott…

… Holy SHIT was that sad… Loogit team Kalitta huddled around his start line mourning the loss of Scott…

What are these different classes you mentioned?

There are four classes of vehicles that are driven in the top series of the NHRA.

1.) Top Fuel Dragsters…

Tony Schumacher Top Fuel Dragster

Long… (up to 25 feet) and skinny with huge tires on the rear and tiny ones on the front to maximize their straight-line acceleration and speed.

Powerful… without getting all technical, good ol’ fashioned pushrod V8 up to 500 cubic inches that sits behind the driver. Huge blower to suck in the enormous volume of air required to mix and burn with the fuel… which is 90% nitromethane and 10% methanol. All this produces anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 horsepower… about double the power of a modern locomotive!

LOUD! Holy shit, it’s the loudest sound I’ve ever heard! They say 150 decibels! And you more than just hear it ~ ya feel it. It’s hard to describe, ya almost have to experience it live, it feels like your brain is being tickled. I’m sure it’s not healthy!

Top fuel dragsters are the fastest sanctioned category of race cars, with the fastest competitors reaching speeds of 330 MPH and finishing the 1,000 foot runs in less than 3.8 seconds.

2.) Funny Cars…

Courtney Force

Funny cars have forward-mounted engines and carbon fiber bodies over the chassis, giving them an appearance vaguely approximating manufacturers’ showroom models. The Dodge Charger and Chevrolet Impala sedans, along with the Ford Mustang and Toyota Solara coupe, are now commonly used in the NHRA. That’s the lovely Courtney Force’s Mustang above!

Power, volume and speed are all pretty similar to the top fuel dragsters, though funny cars are a bit “slower” because of the full body. They still nail over 300 mph and around 4 second 1,000 foot times.

3.) Pro Stock…

Erica Enders' Cobalt

This class can be known as “all motor,” as the cars cannot use artificial induction such as turbocharging, supercharging, or nitrous oxide, and there are very strict rules governing the modifications allowed to the engines, and the types of bodies used. And their fuel is limited to 118 octane racing fuel!

These cars and their 500 cubic inch engines still produce upwards of 1,500 horsepower and run over 200 MPH in around 6.6 seconds for a 1/4 mile run. Still impressive, but it’s hard for me to get into this class… Pictured above is Erica Enders’ Chevy Cobalt.

4.) Pro Stock Motorcycles…

Holy shit! I dunno how these men, and women, are able to comfortably sit on their bikes because of their enormous balls! They’re pushing 200 MPH on 2 freakin’ wheels in 1,320 feet with no protection at all!

That’s the four classes of vehicles in the top level of the NHRA. Now, within each class, competition is very tight, and barring a major malfunction, most races are within .01 or even .001 of a second. Oftentimes you’ll hear the terms fast and quick mentioned; these two words are not interchangeable in drag racing.

Quick refers to the time it takes the vehicle to go from start to finish, aka elapsed time or ET.

Fast means speed…as in miles per hour!

One would naturally assume that the fastest or quickest car wins the race, but that isn’t always true…

Earlier, I mentioned the importance of reaction time and that is huge! If both cars are just as fast and just as quick, the driver who launches, even .001 seconds ahead, wins!

Then there’s the sometimes confusing “holeshot” victory… no this is not a term borrowed from the porn industry… a car runs a quicker ET from start to finish, but the driver’s reaction time was absolute dog shit, and loses the race!

See… reaction time is key in drag racing!

Soooo… what to watch for this season?

Brittany Force

Brittany Force will be making her debut in top fuel. This is the first time ever that John Force Racing has fielded a dragster. Look for her to struggle at times, but I think she’ll be alright.

Mother, Laurie, and Dad, John with Courtney!

Mother, Laurie, and Dad, John with Courtney!

In funny car, Courtney Force is entering her sophomore season. Last year she was inconsistent with her reaction times early on, but tightened things up later in the season. She’s got a legitimate shot at the title this year…

<br />

In pro stock, I expect Erica Enders to win a slew of events this year. Championship? Very possible!

And in pro stock motorcycle, Andrew Hines and Eddie Krawiec might struggle on their Harleys this year after dominating the previous few years… Why? Because the NHRA doesn’t seem to like the American bikes dominating, so they placed more restrictions on ’em this year… It’s bullshit!

Sexy Saturday ~ I TOLD YA SO!

Back in November, Danica Patrick posted this on Facebook:

I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage. This isn’t easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that’s how we will remain moving forward.

It only took a few minutes for me to figure out the real reason for the split, and I predicted it HERE. Yes, Slick Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has been parking his car in her garage!

I don’t think he’s attracted to her because of her ability to drive a race car…

Danica Patrick Crash

… but rather her dexterity with his “stick shift!”

Anyway, let’s take a trip down Danica Lane, shall we? As always, click to embiggen!

And for the ladies and men who like men, here’s Danica’s new boyfriend, Ricky!

Ya cant say “new” boyfriend, because they’ve been doin’ it seeing each other for months now! And she’s still married… Dirty whore! I’m happy for them!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks!

Week 33 NASCAR Update ~ Danica Finished and Dale Didn’t Start…

HUGE reality moment here, people… Prior to 2006, I watched a LOT of NASCAR. I’d watch most races in their entirety. Other, bigger, races (Daytona, Bristol, Talladega) would be marked on the calendar to have parties for.

My occupation changed all that.

From 1993 ’til 2006 I worked in the automotive industry; selling auto parts on a retail basis, selling tools to auto parts stores and, ultimately, selling auto parts to mechanics. Those guys were the Cletuses I mention. 97% of them were into some form of auto racing. I almost HAD to watch all the races so I knew  what was going on. That’s all the repair technicians talked about. If I could join in the conversation for a few minutes, I knew I could eventually segue into having them place an order for parts for the cars on the lifts. It was all another sales tool. Throughout that time, I became a Cletus.

Do you see how I stereotyped NASCAR fans by calling them Cletus? Cletus is, I assume, more of a southern name; at least that’s how it sounds! I just put the southern, good ole boys, hillbilly label on NASCAR fans. NASCAR isn’t only a deep south sport any more, and their fans aren’t “hillbillies”. Have you ever tailgated before a Browns game? Whew! At times I’d prefer NASCAR fans to party with.

Anyway, now that I’ve been working, for almost 7 years, at a job where 0.7% of my coworkers are into NASCAR and talking about racing isn’t an icebreaker with potential clients, I can’t get into racing as much. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a deep appreciation for the skills of the drivers, the ingenuity (Read: ability to find a way around the rulebook for performance advantages) of the teams and all the corporations that drop huge amounts of sponsorship dollars to make the sport “go ’round.” NASCAR, the teams, the sponsors and the drivers give tons back to the communities they’re involved with; probably more so than any other sport.

But writing about it every week is wearing me down. It’s become a chore. Ya know… cars goin’ ’round in circles and all. I don’t disagree with that statement now.

I’m gonna finish out the season, keeping tabs on Austin Dillon, Danica Patrick and Dale Earnhardt Jr., as I set out to do back in February, but if I do this series next year, it will be heavily re-formatted.

On with your regularly scheduled post!

In case you’ve been under a rock the past couple weeks, let me be the first to let you know that October is breast cancer awareness month, or as I like to call it, breast awareness month. No… I’m not joking about it. And neither is NASCAR as they are doing their part to continue to raise awareness and money for treatment and research.

This past weekends action took place at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which received a pink start/finish line for the events…

The Nationwide Series race was ran Friday night…Austin Dillon had a great night, as usual, rolling off second and finishing sixth.

Danica? Well, she was there and she raced and she didn’t crash anyone, so need I say more? Actually she didn’t do too bad all night. She started eleventh and finished eleventh, ONLY ONE LAP DOWN. Good girl!

Joey Logano won AGAIN, his eighth win in 18 Nationwide starts. En route to the win, he led 6 times for a total of 62 laps. Not too shabby.. the kid can drive a car!

Alright… I think I’m on to something here…. Logano wins a lot of races and then poses with his steering wheel in his hand. Does NASCAR inspect the steering wheels? Does Joey NOT leave it in the car for a reason? Maybe his team found some sort of advantage where the clues are in the steering wheel!

The Sprint Cup series raced on Saturday and I did not watch it. I was hanging out with Frank The Mayor at his house Funtown. That Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey is pretty good, by the way!

Sorry, back to racing… My dude, Carl Edwards, isn’t in The Chase and Dale Earnhardt didn’t couldn’t even race. I may have had a knee jerk reaction about Jr. I knew he had a bad crash at a tire test in Kansas several weeks ago. I never put it all together, though. Don’t blame me… these dudes are all top secret about everything.

Jr. had a press conference last Thursday in which he clarified things. Apparently he was sort of messed up after the crash at the Kansas tire test, headaches and all. Then he felt pretty good before last weekend’s race at Talladega; and the last lap crash happened in which he was possibly concussed again. That’s not good. So he was out of the car this past weekend and will miss next week at Kansas. I understand that. Just keep us informed, JR. and I won’t put you on blast!

Clint Bowyer won Saturday night… He led 29 laps, one of ’em being the final lap, which is the goal for any race car driver…

And the team goes crazy! Nice job, fellas!

Week 32 NASCAR Update

Austin Dillon and Danica Patrick were idle this week, as the Nationwide Series was off. That just means that Austin didn’t kick ass and Danica didn’t destroy another racecar!

The Sprint Cup series raced at Talladega Superspeedway yesterday. This joint…

…and I watched parts of it, but it was pretty boring overall. Dale Jr. rolled off twelfth and ended up with a 20th place finish due to a huge accident that happened on the very last lap. He led 18 laps en route to the crash… Wanna know who caused the crash? Tony Stewart… He’s the guy who owns Danica Patrick’s Cup car… Apparently the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.

 

The car you see the bottom of? That’s Tony Stewart’s. Everyone ended up okay and unhurt… His idiocy took out 24 of the 36 cars on the lead lap… OUCH!

Anyway, Matt Kenseth won the race, which was bitter sweet for me… His sorry ass is going to drive a Toyota next year, but he won yesterday for Roush Fenway Racing…

I’m sorry if I appear to just be going through the motions here, but I am… Not much into writing tonight…

Numbers after week 32:

Austin (not pictured…):

Starts Wins Top 5 Top 10 Avg. Start Avg. Finish

Here’s Dale, driving his lover, Jimmie Johnson, back to the pits after the big crash.
