I think I might have mentioned at one point or another that I was working on a plan/idea to make this blog bigger & better. Well, I’m finally ready to tell you about it!
I mean, if you told me that Jimmie Johnson hadn’t wasn’t going to win anything 8 races into the season, I would have told you that gnomes were real and where could I get one?
Clearly I have missed some races. I watched all of them just haven’t written about them yet. I didn’t go to Fontana yet again which really hurt my heart but I just couldn’t swing it this year.
So I just realized that I didn’t write about Phoenix. Whoops! Kevin Harvick totally dominated that race, but there are probably two reasons why I didn’t post anything.
So this video is absolutely wonderful and totally worth your time to watch.
I don’t know if you’ve heard but a little known race car driver named Dale Earnhardt Jr. won this year’s Daytona 500.
I mean, A LOT of graphics! I think the theme of the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season will be ‘Explanation.’ Everybody is going to be explaining how the new qualifying system will work and how the new Chase format will work, so get ready for a bunch of segments dissecting the new formats and whether or not Jimmie Johnson will be able to adapt to them.
Do I have a crush on Tony Stewart? I think I have a crush on Tony Stewart!
You might have noticed I haven’t been posting a lot, OK, anything in a long time. I’ve been busy with my work life. I switched day jobs and honestly, as I’ve said in previous posts, I haven’t been as inspired to write by NASCAR as I would like.
Ryan Newman won’t be in the No. 39 for much longer, which makes this contest even better. Thanks to Wheat Thins I’m giving away 5 (five) #39 hats that have been autographed by Ryan himself.
This video, you guys. I am OBSESSED with this video. How awesome is Carl Edwards in this music video for Sara Evans’ song “Slow Me Down”??? I LOVE THIS VIDEO!!! Hubba hubba.
I haven’t written about a race in a few weeks, which is bad. The only reason I can give for not is that I just haven’t really felt inspired to write anything. I always want to but then by the time I think of something it’s late and irrelevant. So the fact that I’m posting this on a Tuesday, AT ALL, is a huge win.
Do I really need to say anything else?? I mean, c’mon. The video above is a behind-the-scenes interview and look at the photoshoot Kasey Kahne did for ESPN The Magazine a little while ago.
Yep, Brian Vickers married his longtime girlfriend, Sarah, in Wyoming this week.
Congratulations to Sarah & Brian!
And everybody has one. Especially about this whole Michael Waltrip Racing cheater McCheaterson thing.
The last laps of last night’s race at Richmond were chock full of WTF moments I’m not quite sure where to begin.
Jimmie and Chandra Johnson welcomed their second daughter, whose name has yet to be selected, early this morning.
This was my exact reaction to hearing the news about Kurt Busch joining Stewart-Haas Racing next year:
Some random things to share
Yea, I don’t know. I’m just going with it.
Congratulations to Joey Logano and the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil team on their win at Michigan this weekend.
