As the Track Turns....

Stewart and Busch get in a door-bangin' battle in practice and get sent to the NASCAR trailer where Tony promtly pops Curt in the face...Jr. takes his new Hendrick 88 to Victory Lane, aided by a shove from current champ Jimmy Johnson as bad-boy Stewart tries in vain to hold off the Hendrick express...Jimmy takes the pole for the 50th running of the Daytona 500 lining up next to.....fan fave Michael Waltrip! Now look, I buying all the rest as great NASCAR irony, but Waltrip on the front row???? Now you're testing me! Even as big bro DW told us, "Things are looking good for Mikey" who thought front row!
No matter, NASCAR's peaked my interest again and it'll be very interesting how they handle the Stewart-Busch deal. NASCAR can't show us enough how Cale Yarbough and Bobby Allison duked it out on the back stretch at the end of the first fully televised 500 in '79 (Bobby's favorite line: Cale took to beatin' on my fist with his face!) and now they say they want a return of "Personality". Well, they've got plenty of that, and this should be a fun week on the beach!

I can't wait until March 29th and racing season begins. They'll be rockin' at Homestead.

Let's keep this in perspective. It's NASCAR for crying out loud. 100% completely irrelevant. You scoff at the NBA because of 'the foreigners & cornrows' yet you praise rednecks who talk about 'blown motors'? Again you scoff at the NBA yet you talk NASCAR & about a hockey team that most of Nashville could care less about.

that's blowed motors, not blown motors in NASCAR. As in, "she done blowed up!"
