It’s Talladega Baby!!! Spring 2010 Edition

Tits at Talladega

It’s Talladega, Baby!!! It’s the race we’ve been waiting for!! The Aarons 499 from Talladega Superspeedway tees off tomorrow at Noon. Qualifying and all Satruday activities at Talladega have just been canceled as I write this up. The field is set by owner points and Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth start on the front row.…

The Jaws Of Victory

The old cliche of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat was turned on it’s proverbial cauliflower ear this past weekend in more ways than one. And one would have been enough, but unfortunately there were MORE ways. One way was Sunday’s Sprint Cup race, which, due to rain was postponed ’til Monday, and was…

Tell Me Something I Don’t Already Know

DAMN the damned ability of Jimmie Johnson and the evil mechanations of Chad Knaus!! The top of the lineup for this evening’s Subway Fresh Fit 600 from Phoenix is full of WTF?  I mean that sincerely. A.J. Allmendinger will tee it off first alongside Scott Speed. In the next row, Sam Hornish Jr and Marcus…

“In the 1st running of the Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway on March 29th 2010…” Once again, since the race was postponed because of rain, I had to hire an Observer to watch the Sprint Cup race for me. The Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500 was postponed to Monday, and since I’m…

Children By The Millions

Alex Chilton

Motorsports are different in Europe. Motorsports are different in Europe. AS are many things sporting, or sportif. Formula 1 vs. NASCAR. It sort of makes me wonder what it would be like if NASCAR actually staged a race in Europe. Hah! I could see it all now….instead of a race at Watkins Glen or Sears…

The Bigger Man

NASCAR has spoken! Brian France and Mike Helton give The Carl a slap on the wrist. The word has come down from on high and once again, the utter hypocrisy of NASCAR has reared it’s two-faced head and the bigger man, the better man, has lost the battle and the war.  The Carl gets a…

Jeff Gordon Speaks!!

Why I have not shot myself in the head because Jimmie Johnson won his 2nd focking race in a row at Las Vegas last Sunday, is an utter and total mystery to me at moment, especially in light of the fact that none other than Jeff Gordon (yes THAT homo Jeff Gordon) pretty much said…

The Shallow Men

shallow men beleive in luck

Last Sunday, at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana CA, the real 2010 NASCAR season began. The Daytona 500, after all, is a spectacle, an aberration, a crap-shoot, and where one finishes there is a no indication of future performance. ((Yes, I’m talking to YOU Derrike Cope)). The Auto Club 500 last Sunday was a more…

Along Nature’s Tortuous Way….

Matt Kenseth

One of my ongoing frustrations I’ve had over the years has been the general dearth of coverage by the  NASCAR press both mainstream and otherwise, of the inner workings of Roush Fenway racing in general and of Matt Kenseth in particular. A lot of times, it’s more a matter of trying to read tea-leaves, or…

Clowntime Is Over

Silly Season is finally over. There is a less than a day to go…23 hours and change as I begin writing this, ’til the start of the Daytona 500. And as I write some of this, Danica Patrick’s quest to save NASCAR has begun in earnest with the Drive4COPD 300 Nationwide race at Daytona. But…

Mpls in 73

“According to THIS book, someday you will publish a photo of us on the Internet.” Sometimes I just get caught up in my own format. It becomes a trap from which I can barely escape. Hopefully, by recognizing that and bringing it to light, I can indeed effect an escape. Format. Perhaps I should explain,…

Time For Me

The racing season has finally begun!  I’ve been watching the Rolex 24 hours of Daytona and as I type this with about 2 hours and change to go,  the #9 Action Express Porsche Riley team with Mike Rockenfeller currently at helm has the lead over Chip Gannasi’s #01 BMW Riley by about 1 minute 22…

In A Dark And Lonely World….

In keeping with the current theme and mood and mode of hopelessness and despair, it pains me greatly to report a VERY disturbing new development in the world of NASCAR, specifically in the Camping World Truck series. This is a development so shocking to me that I can barely find the right words to wrap…

No Possible Relevance To Anything But Itself

Yes, I know it’s the Holidays. Christmas, New Years and all that and I hope it’s happy. Also, it’s not only the end of the year, but also the end of the Decade. But if you’re expecting anything Holiday or Fin de Year/Decade related, or a sad parade of Top 10 Lists, well, best prepare…
