– The following photo is quite possibly the greatest photo of Clint Bowyer ever taken to date. Love it!

— This photo (below) of me with a cardboard Denny Hamlin was taken in 2008 at Infineon Raceway. At the Toyota tent roving photographers will volunteer to take your picture with one of the standee versions of their drivers and then they give you a little Pit Pass card that tells you how to download your photo once you get home. I didn’t have anything else to do at that point in time so I thought it’d be funny to take a pic with flat Denny. The cool thing is that 2 years later the photo was still available for me to download from the Toyota racing website. You’d think after a year they’d delete it to save space or something.

— On Thursday Kasey Kahne was in Johnson City, Tennessee to promote the upcoming race weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. He spent time with the media at Fun Expedition shooting hoops, hitting up the batting cage and climbing a rock wall. All of which got me thinking about what it would be like to go on a date with Kasey at a place like Fun Expedition. ‘Cause really, who goes to a place like that if they’re not a kid, a teenager or a person on a date. Just imagine playing Skee Ball with Kasey. Super fun! I’ve got dibs on Kasey if Infineon Raceway decides to do that (hint, hint) to help promote their NASCAR weekend this year. I’m just sayin’.
