MADISON, IL - JULY 17: Trevor Bayne, driver of the  Out!

(Photo by Jason Smith/Getty Images for NASCAR)Everyday, at least that’s what it feels like, I get press releases or newsy items about teams, sponsors, charities and drivers in the world of racing. I probably get around to posting like 10% of it. It’s not because it’s bad or uninteresting it’s just that I don’t have time to post ‘em all. So that’s why I created a new sub-section here for The Fast and the Fabulous called ‘Fabulous’ News. It’s where you, your friends and PR people can post any kind of newsy news and press releases for everyone to read.

This way you don’t have to wait for me to post ‘em. They still have to be approved before they’re shown on the site but they won’t go through my filter so it’s still a lot better than languishing in my email box.

Of course, if something piques my interest I’ll still highlight it here in the main area of The Fast and the Fabulous.

You can post a photo, text or a video.

In addition to posting your own news you can ask me questions. Questions about anything, how I became a blogger or what I think of so-and-so, etc.

It’s all thanks to the cool platform that is tumblr. I’ve always wanted to have an area on my site where people can post stuff on their own and now it’s here! So check it out and get postin’!

In other news…

– Yesterday the No. 29 Shell-Pennzoil pit crew participated in a grocery bagging competition at a Kroger store in Indianapolis. The minute I heard about this challenge, the pit crew guys went up against local fans, I knew I needed the photos from the event. They didn’t fail to be funny (see below).

Kroger and Shell have teamed up for a special promotion, too:

Shell and Kroger have teamed up to help customers earn fuel savings at the pump. The exclusive alliance provides Kroger shoppers in several U.S. cities the opportunity to earn savings on fuels, including Shell Nitrogen Enriched gasoline and Shell Diesel fuel, when using their Kroger family of brands loyalty card at participating Kroger stores.

This offer is valid up to 35 gallons per fuel purchase. Customers earn one Fuel Point for every dollar spent at participating Kroger stores when they use their loyalty card.
