It seems that Kurt Busch's temper got the best of him again after his transmission failed and he was forced out of Sundays final race of the season at Homestead. Kurt went off on an apparent "profanity laced tirade" when ESPN analyst Jerry Punch tried to interview Busch afterwards. Punch took one too many low blows from Busch, and decided the interview was not worth…Continue
A couple of years back NASCAR decided that instead of their never ending rules changes pertaining to how they rule on incidents between drivers taking things out between each other, they decided (due to fan feedback) that "boys have at it" would be the best way to go.
Well to me, as always when NASCAR makes changes to their never ending rules changes, they always seem to create more changes to their rules. Now follow me if it is…Continue
NASCAR officials said on Saturday there is no evidence to support allegations that Paul Menard spun out intentionally to bring out a caution and affect the finish of last weekend's Sprint Cup race at Richmond International Raceway. Spokesman Kerry Tharp said officials listened to audio of Menard's radio transmission before he spun out with 16 laps remaining and found nothing to indicate he did anything deliberately.(…Continue
I have listened to Larry McReynolds and Kyle Petty lambaste and ridicule Dale Jr and the 88 team stating that in their opinion they do not have what it takes to be competitive in the final 10 races of the Chase. Who the heck to these two run of the mill fools think they are. Especially you Kyle Petty. If you look up in Websters Dictionary under the epitome of a run of the mill driver there is a picture of you.
I know I am running off at the mouth tonight, but I know that Jr is better…Continue
"What I heard was something about some communication about needing a caution, not needing a caution, and then they were giving the gaps between me and the 29 car, the distance as I closed in," he said. "I think after I passed them and they said something, and Paul asked, 'Do you need the caution? Don't need the caution?' Then they said 'Go to Channel 2' and then they spun out."
Those were the words of Jeff Gordon after the conclusion of the Richmond Race this past weekend. Now from…Continue
On a night where everything that could go wrong did go wrong, Dale Jr and the 88 team fought off what seemed like endless adversities and held on for the final regular Chase position. It was bad enough that Dale Jr had to fight his way up thru the pack due to another poor qualifying effort, but he had to do it in a car that for most of the race looked like it was on…Continue
Back in the day, when I was a very young boy one of the things we did to amuse ourselves was to build these "race carts" built out of a 1x12 board about 6 foot long, and axels from baby carriage axels and wheels we got from the dump. We would nail the back axel to the 1x12 board with the big wheels, and then connect a 1x4 with another axel nailed to it with two smaller wheels secured to the axel to the front of the 1x12 board with a…Continue
Hi everyone, My son Seth is one of the thousands who have been isolated from the rest of the world in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene in Vermont. Attached are pictures Seth took with his cell phone right after the storm subsided as he was trying to find a way out. All roads and bridges were washed out or taken away by the raging waters that have devastated most of southern Vermont. These small towns and communities have been left with no power, no phones, no water and no means of…Continue
When Rick Hendrick signed Kyle Busch to drive the #5 car for him, he knew that Kyle was a great driver, but he also hoped that he would be a great driver that did not come with a lot of baggage. In my opinion it did not take very long for Hendrick to realize that Kyle Busch was more trouble than he was worth.
The tantrums and outburst were something he could not condone, so Hendrick made the decision to let the young and…Continue
Over the years I have watched as Dale Jr has won 2 Busch Championships, 18 career Cup Victories and become the most beloved NASCAR driver of all time. But the thing that sticks in my mind the most was watching as the TV cameras caught Dale Jr climb from his #8 car immediately after the conclusion of the 2001 Daytona 500, and running to the crash scene to find out if his dad Dale Sr was all right, only to find out his dad had passed…Continue
