preseason thunder: not interested in dale jr.’s chips

NASCAR drivers reported to Daytona International Speedway yesterday for two days of Sprint Cup Series Preseason Thunder testing. This was supposed to be an extra-special testing session because they were driving the new sixth-generation car.

It’s that time again! Who do YOU think is the supercutest NASCAR driver? We’re ready to find out who will be crowned the hottest driver of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for 2013! This year’s field is compiled of the drivers that completed 34 or more races in the 2012 season. The brackets were seeded randomly and we have five rounds (each round lasts a week) of action to determine the ultimate winner.

interview: talking baby & marriage with denny hamlin’s girlfriend, jordan fish

I had the wonderful opportunity to chat with Denny Hamlin’s girlfriend, Jordan Fish. Jordan met Denny when she was a dancer for the Charlotte Bobcats five years ago and since then their relationship has grown to the point where they’re now ready to welcome their first child — a girl — into the world later this month. Jordan is super sweet, honest and open. I had a blast talking with her about her life with Denny and learning more about who she is as a person.

interview: a conversation with ryan newman

On the day of the last race of the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season I had the opportunity to interview Ryan Newman (as you can see in the photo above). This was all thanks to his sponsor Quicken Loans who brought me down to Miami last month. It was a quick but really interesting conversation.

"No, I don’t keep trophies at my house. I don’t believe in building a shrine to myself. It’s kind of weird."
Brad Keselowski on if he'll ever keep his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship trophy at his house. (December 11, 2012)

Since I’m not in Las Vegas (*sniffle*) for NASCAR’s Champion’s Week festivities all I can do is post photos. Above is what I’ve got so far from Tuesday and Wednesday. I’ll post everything else on Saturday.

homestead: penske persistence pays off (say that ten times fast) and other stuff

I was going to write a whole paragraph about how traveling sucked but I figured what’s the point. You guys have been there, you know what I was dealing with on my flights from San Francisco to Charlotte and then on to Miami. Although I have to say I have NEVER been on a flight so full of babies & toddlers as I did that Saturday. It was crazy and it made me vow that if I ever have kids I’m not flying anywhere with them until they’re adults. :)

i’m going to homestead-miami speedway this weekend!

Awesomely fabulous news! Thanks to the awesome folks at Quicken Loans I’m attending the final race in the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule! This weekend’s race will be my first visit to Homestead-Miami Speedway and to Florida in general. I’m REALLY looking forward to it, especially since I didn’t think I was going to be able to attend any more NASCAR events this year.

samantha-busch-interview

a NASCAR wife interview with samantha busch

The thing I love the most about interviewing wives & girlfriends of NASCAR drivers is that you get to see them through a different perspective. That different view, of seeing them as regular people, is my number one goal for this site (well, that and getting to do this full-time) and it’s the reason I was really excited to interview Kyle Busch‘s wife, Samantha. I sent Samantha a bunch of questions that she’s answered — awesomely — below. I really think you’ll dig this interview and maybe look at Kyle differently as a result.

fight, fight, fight! jeff gordon won’t back down, neither will clint bowyer’s crew

I don’t know if you heard but there was a little incident at Phoenix International Raceway yesterday. It was so small that it caused #NASCAR to be a trend nationally on Twitter and for The Today Show to mention it this morning. Just a bunch of dudes getting in to a fist fight in the garage that’s all.

steve letarte didn’t go to prom, went to ‘hendrick high school’

Diet Mountain Dew created a series of videos available to view on YouTube called “Getting to Know the Dew Crew.” The series includes interviews with various members of the No. 88 Diet Mountain Dew team, including Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his crew chief Steve Letarte (above). I didn’t watch all of them but I find it REALLY interesting that none of them have received over 1,000 views yet. It could have something to do with the fact that the content isn’t that thrilling and no one told you about ‘em, but I guess I am now. :)

why i’m not going to champion’s week this year, unless…

It seriously pains me to say this, er type this, but I’m not attending this year’s NASCAR Champion’s Week and Awards Ceremony in Las Vegas. I simply can’t afford it. I could go but then I’d have to not pay rent, or at least not pay all of it and I’ve heard that my landlord frowns on that kind of thing. So I’m stuck not going to one of my favorite events of the year.
