So far Richard Petty is right.

To: mountn man

Wasn’t her fault.

The Petty’s are not known for their intelligence. They suffer from that disease my father always accused me of, “engage brain before operating mouth”.

He needs to thank her because she is one of the major drawing cards for taxi-cab racing spectators. Even at that nascrap is still losing track spectators as well as viewers and many of the tracks are having financial close calls.

The cost of racing has gone thru the roof and sponsors keep getting harder and harder to get.

Besides, Petty should know there are realistically approx. 10 cars that can win on any given day. The other 33 are fillers to provide “sizzle”, Danica included. After all, who wants to watch a race with 10 cars in it?

Good Morning Race Fans!!!

Round 2 2014 PHOENIX

Now we move to Sir Chode Qualifying Rules for the remainder of the Season.

Entry List for the The Profit on CNBC 500(k) Sprint Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway is posted, 46 teams/drivers [for 43 spots] are listed, including: #32-Kvapil, #66-Nemechek, #87-Shepherd, #95-McDowell, #33-Scott. With 46 cars entered, 3 drivers will miss the race. #41-Busch has no owners points (until the 4th race), so he must qualify on speed or he could use a past champions provisional as long as #14-Stewart or #2-Keselowski do not need to use it. Two drivers must qualify via speed and do not have a provisional available: #26-Whitt and #77-Blaney. See the full entry list at my Entry List

Patrick passes 1 million Twitter followers:

Daytona 500 winner #88-Dale Earnhardt, Jr. may be known as NASCAR's most popular driver, but when it comes to Twitter, he's got some catching up to do. #10-Danica Patrick became NASCAR's first driver with over 1 million Twitter followers in the days leading up to Sunday's big race, ranking her among the top racing drivers and female athletes in the world. Of course, Dale Jr. didn't even have a Twitter account before the Daytona 500, but celebrated his second win there by opening an account and quickly attracted over a quarter of a million followers.(as of this Post, Jr has 507K and counting) The 1 million mark easily tops all NASCAR drivers. Next highest is six-time champion #48-Jimmie Johnson's 530,000 followers. Juan Pablo Montoya leads all IndyCar drivers with just under 800,000. Patrick's boyfriend, fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr., has 126,000 followers.(Associated Press)(2-26-2014)

Heck it was a Zoo at JRM & HMS Shops on Monday, Fans everywhere at both.

I haven't heard anything yet but I would imagine MV will be a Ticker Tape Parade down Main St. when He get's back home.

He's not going to be back until after Vegas.

I would think He will have the plane land at Concord Regional as that is close to HMS so He can go "Ring the Bell"

NC man reaching for cane shot in SC traffic stop
AP via [Myrtle Beach] Sun-News ^ | February 26, 2014

Posted on Thursday, February 27, 2014 2:02:34 AM by Slings and Arrows

CLOVER, S.C. — York County deputies say an officer shot a 70-year-old man reaching for a cane during a traffic stop because he thought the man was grabbing a rifle from the bed of his pickup truck.

-snip-

Sheriff’s office spokesman Trent Faris said Knox stopped 70-year-old Bobby Canipe (kah-NYP’) of Lincolnton, N.C., for an expired license plate Tuesday evening. Investigators say Canipe got out of his pickup and reached into the truck bed for his cane and Knox fired several shots, hitting Canipe once.

-snip-

Faris says the shooting was unfortunate, but appeared to be appropriate because Knox felt an imminent threat to his life.

Wendell Scott decal on cars in Phoenix:

Since 2010, NASCAR has designated the first race weekend in March as a time to commemorate Wendell Scott's first career start. Scott is the only African- American driver to win a Grand National (now Sprint Cup) Series event in NASCAR history. Cars in all four NASCAR series competing at Phoenix International Raceway (NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series) will sport a commemorative decal. The decals will be applied to the B or C post of each vehicle during the inspection processes throughout the entire weekend.(NASCAR)(2-27-2014)

New Jeff Gordon viral “test drive” video filmed in Charlotte area:

#24-Jeff Gordon is at it again. A year after his hidden camera “Test Drive” ad for Pepsi Max went viral, he went undercover again for a part two. But this one came with a twist. Gordon took a lot of flack after the first video with many people across the internet saying it wasn’t real and that the entire thing was faked. One of the loudest voices - a blogger named Travis Okulski. So with the help of a friend, Gordon and Pepsi Max teamed up to shoot another video - this time with Okulski as the unexpecting “victim.” Okulski was flown down to Charlotte earlier this month under false pretenses. He thought he was getting a chance to get in the brand new Corvette Z06. In order to keep things quiet, Okulski was told the project was top secret and lots of money would be lost if people knew. That’s when Gordon, dress with fake neck tattoos, a wig and fake facial hair, pulled up in a cab to pick Okulski up from the motel. After a few minutes of small talk, a state trooper pulls behind the cab and Gordon said something Okulski didn’t want to hear. “There’s a cop behind me. I get nervous when cops are on me.
