Here's a Thought or Two (Or Three)
Random thoughts while trying to get my car to 128 mph.
I hope Jack Roush made Carl Edwards spend his entire week working on that car that he tore all to hell in his post-All-Star race slide through the grass. I’m sure he didn’t expect to almost flip his car while taking it to the nicely manicured lawn on the front stretch.
But he still should be putting that bad fast race car back together after ripping the nose off it.
My birthday is coming up. I want the new tell-all ESPN book “Those Guys Had All The Fun.”
Not real sure what is wrong with Trevor Bayne, but here’s to hoping that that young man gets back to wheeling a race car real soon. Roush Fenway announced that he is out for the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series races this weekend. Ricky Stenhouse will be in his No. 21 Cup car at Charlotte, and Matt Kenseth will be in his Nationwide car.
Bayne is scheduled to be back in the No. 21 at Michigan on June 16. Let’s hope that he is.
Danica Patrick is supposedly coming to NASCAR full-time next year. Her IRL contract with Andretti Green Racing expires after this year. So does her contract with JR Motorsports.
For her part, Patrick says she doesn’t know where the speculation is coming from. But Tony Stewart says he’s interested in signing her.
If the rumors are true, David Gilliland better be scared about his tenuous hold on those 30th place finishes.
RIP, Macho Man.
All kidding aside about Carl Edwards and his slide. That was the only interesting thing about that whole damn spectacle last Saturday night. I think it’s time to go back to the drawing board on the format for the whole event. The 50-lap opening dash is useless.
So much for that 2-11 start.
So Kyle Busch decided he wanted to go 128 in a 45-mile per hour zone in a residential area in a $375,000 Lexus.
He must have thought that Kevin Harvick was still chasing him.
And Kyle Busch wonders why people don’t like him.
David Newton had a great column on ESPN.com about Busch and his misadventure. And I agree that there should be some kind of NASCAR repercussions for his actions on this one.
I am sure he asked the cop at some point, “Do you know who I am?”
I think this Kimi Raikkonen cat will be pretty good.
He did a good job in the truck at Charlotte with a truck that wasn’t great in the early running.
From the files of my favorite superhero Cap’n Obvious: “Drinking linked to problems in the ballpark stands.” Thank you AP. Really? 1,600 words devoted to that?
I don’t think I would ever mess with Simona De Silvestro. She is racing at Indy despite the second-degree burns to her hands.
