Remember, my content has moved!

Hey gang... 

This is a reminder that I have moved my content to the following domain, which is part of my larger, all-in-one website:

Tell me what you think?  Good, bad, want it all back in  one place here?

UPDATE: 1/30/12:  I'm getting pretty fickle, but right now, I'm experimenting with coming back to this location for all my NASCAR news, updates and opinions.  (I warned you... I did say fickle!)

Dale Earnhardt Jr. on SPEED TV Tonight

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be on NASCAR Race Hub tonight on SPEED chatting with Steve Byrnes
In the chat, they touch on a few thing, like the kind of season Dale is having, his old ways and some interesting perspectives he has.

Jr. touched on how, despite people are calling this his comeback season, he really doesn't equate the word comeback to the year.  He says he understands that the media has to spin things up to make them interesting, but he doesn't subscribe to the practice.

He says he doesn't feel like a celebrity or anything like that, but as he starts to get asked questions in interviews, he becomes more guarded as an interview wears on.  He gets guarded because he worries about getting too comfortable with what he says and replies with.

Dale Jr. has also toned down the partying days.  At least a little bit.  He used to pull all-nighters often, but not so much so now.

Dale also noted how a driver's performance is directly related to how well the car is doing.  He says in most cases, it's the car that is the primary factor, not the driver.

If you catch this article today (8/11/11), you can catch Dale Earnhardt Jr. on SPEED's NASCAR Race Hub tonight.

The Coca-Cola 600 Closing Laps and Race Finish

The Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway had been preceded by the Indianapolis 500 race which had its own exciting finish.  But tonight, after NASCAR having it's longest race ever, The Coca-Cola 600 definitely had a surprise and its own exciting finish to compare against the Indy 500.

It was definitely a long race, starting a bit after 3 p.m. and finishing up just before 8 p.m., but the closing 20 laps developed its own sort of drama.

Head on over to my entire article at, and read about NASCAR's Coca-Cola 600 race.

Kyle Busch Statement Released From His PR Camp

Below is a statement released from Kyle Busch's camp in regards to his speeding ticket that he received today:

Statement from Kyle Busch 

"Today I received a traffic citation in Iredell County. I was test driving a new sports car and I got carried away. I went  beyond the speed I should have been going on a public road. I apologize to the public, my fans, sponsors, and race teams for my lack of judgment. I take responsibility for my actions and I can assure you that something like this will never happen again. I thank the Iredell County Sheriff's Department and all law enforcement for the hard work they do every day to protect the public and to enforce the laws in a fair and equitable manner."

Kyle Busch Caught Speeding - Big Time

Kyle Busch, the wheel-man of all wheel men to date, has been busted for speeding.  Speeding!!!

He was pulled over by an Iredell County Sheriff for doing 128 in a 45 zone.  This was on Perth Road between Troutman and Mooresville. Those kinds of speeds, per the law, become a reckless driving ticket for most folks!

Ya know, I would have thought that he gets that out of his system over the weekends, but if it's in your blood, so be it!

My next question is this:  Is this something NASCAR would care about?  I ask because sometimes they take actions on events outside of the track.  I doubt they will, but hey, we'll see.
