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.

When Oral-B® gave me the opportunity to ask Ryan Newman a question I instantly thought about dating. Not in the way that you think.

I don’t know why but lately I’m finding it hard to find things to talk about when it comes to NASCAR. Kyle Busch won at Watkins Glen, so there’s that. Tony Stewart’s out of the hospital, glad to heard it. And now Austin Dillon is filling in for Tony at Michigan, good for him.

Here’s a random list of things I’ve been thinking about NASCAR this week:

david-ragan-interview

interview: inside the actor’s studio with david ragan

My interview with David Ragan was a bit of a guerrilla deal. I didn’t schedule it ahead of time. At Sonoma this year, after I confronted Kasey Kahne about his Hottest Driver Tournament wins, we went in search of a another driver that I could interview.

ryan newman is a brick kisser

Congratulations Ryan Newman on winning the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway! You’re awesome, you deserved it and I sincerely hope this brings you sponsorship and a new Cup team/home next year.

interview: inside the actor’s studio with david stremme

I interviewed David Stremme at Sonoma Raceway last month and he was great. Drivers are never expecting these questions so it’s always fun to see their reactions. Stremme was no different, he was really funny and gave some great answers.

You know me, I hone in on the IMPORTANT news. :) While Brian Vickers was in victory lane celebrating his win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway today he dropped the news that he’d gotten engaged to his girlfriend, Sarah Kensington.

sonoma sunday: the best photos i’ve ever taken of addington, gustafson and logano

Sunday morning I woke up ridiculously early so that I could get to the track in time to get a ride in the pace car with Brett Bodine. This was my second time getting to ride around the Sonoma Raceway track but it had been long enough since the first time I’d done it to not remember what it felt like. Let me tell you this, Brett Bodine doesn’t lay off the gas pedal just because you’re not a race car driver. That guy went flat out and it was insane.

sonoma saturday: where I met dale jr.’s doppelganger

When I got to the Cup garage at Sonoma Raceway on Saturday the inspections process was in full-swing for qualifying.

Kristen attempted to explain to me how NASCAR started using lasers this year at one of the inspection stations to measure the car. It’s kinda neat how it’s able to find the center of the car. It’s all completely computerized.

For me, I just yawn and move on. So the things that I’ve been thinking about since Sunday’s race have nothing to do with what happened in the race really.

kicking and screaming at richmond

I didn’t see the kicking and screaming at Richmond after the Nationwide Series race because I was at work, or on my way home from work but I heard all about it. I think this year is all about drivers “not taking it anymore,” like, everyone suddenly remembered NASCAR saying “Boys have at it” but it didn’t sink in until this year.

on dating: i’m exhausted! where is he?!

On December 30th of last year my boyfriend of one year told me that we had to break up (our one-year anniversary was the day before). He didn’t see a future for us, not one in which we stayed together, got married one day and had babies. He didn’t see any of the things that I did.
