Hey folks welcome to my NASCAR Updates & Other Fast Stuff. When I woke up this mourning I discovered I was still in America. The home of the free and the brave and all things good. It’d positive day. Life is good, I’m as healthy as I can be and it’s just a good day. Much to be grateful for even when it’s not perfect.
I mean look at Courtney’s Funny Car today. Bright, cheery and ready to kick some booty.
Watched the Hot Rod 2016 Showdown on a live feed on You Tube Friday night. What’s not to love about watching a 1992 Geo Tracker do a 10 second run down the drag strip. So wrong on so many levels but you gotta love it. Lutz didn’t get his 5 second pass like he promised but I’m sure he still won the Hot Rod coat. Yeah, they travel to 5 drag strips in 5 days only to win a coat from Hot Rod magazine. I’m sure Roadkill will have a recap of the whole event.
So what of the land of Left Turns?
MS DANICA HAS PLANS
She’s 22nd in the point standings which is about where she was last year. And she’s looking to her future. Her social media accounts helped her to see her 2nd passion which is wellness and health. Looking at her Instagram feed you’ll see pictures of healthy meals and snacks from her sponsor Natures Bakery. Danica says they’re a great fit for her.
Natures Bakery founder Dave Marson agrees about the fit and says that the business has grown 50% since joining up with Danica and the SHR team.
Danica also says she has a TV career in mind. And in January 2017, she’ll be releasing a line of cloths called Warrior. Girl is busy.
I have to say that I love the new chocolate snack bars Natures Bakery recently put out. I love the chocolate liquor taste. Very moist too. Yuuuuuuuu-my….( =
TY DILLON TO TAKE REGAN SMITH PLACE
Reagan has run off to Charlotte because his wife went into labor. Ty Dillon stepped into the #7 just to practice and qualify the car but since at this writing Regan’s wife hasn’t had the baby yet, Ty will stay in the car for today.
Also Ty Dillon will be driving the #95 Chevy for Circle Sport/Leavine Family Racing at Dover this coming October. Death Wish coffee has come on board as the primary sponsor.
Death Wish coffee is out of Albany, NY and it’s founder is Mike Brown who used to be an accountant. He quit his job and opened a coffee shop. Customers kept asking for stronger coffee so he developed the worlds strongest coffee.
I looked it up and your talking $19.99 for a pound. That’s not including shipping. I love the skull and cross bones logo though. So if any one gets some or has tried it, I’d love to know if it’s as tasty as it is dangerous. We all need a bit of danger in our lives now and again.
COWABUNGA DUDE!!!!! Todays the day folks. It’s the 1st race of the chase. And look at the swell trophy. Denny Hamlin won Richmond last week and he won Chicagoland last year. The line up was set per the rule book because of rain this week washing out qualifying. So that means Ky Bu is on the pole with his 4 big W’s as a cushion.
So lets talk drivers.
KY BU – He led 121 laps last year but didn’t seal the deal. Still a top 10 would be in order.
HARVICK – Wrecked on lap 139 after contact with Johnson on a restart but Mr Free Bloomin Onion is way too consistent to rule out for a top 10.
JOHNSON – It’s Chase time. Although he hasn’t been as reliable for a top 10 all summer, I will say Top 10 today.
KENSETH – Top 10
LARSON – He’s been on a tear. Finally got that elusive 1st win and I expect to see more and a Top 10 today.
KU BU – Hard to bet against the new improved and much more focused driver in the #41. A Top 10
KESELOWSKI – Has 2 wins her in the last 5 starts. Top 10
LOGANO – Top 10
HAMLIN – He’s your consult your local psychic pick this week. He should but I won’t commit.
DILLON – He also wrecked last year but I think Grandpa Childress will be giving him the best of everything in the shop since he made the Chase. Top 10
So I hope everyone is well and enjoying the Fall. The leaves will be changing soon. Can’t wait for that. Best time of the year in the north east. I really should get my lawn mowed. Time is just so elusive these days. Take care all
And I’m outta here….=^!^=
