DO “THE DOUBLE” TONY!

There’s an uncharacteristic buzz in the post-award banquet world of racing, and it has nothing to do with what Danica Patrick wore to Las Vegas. Championship racing impresario Roger Penske has the chatter class working overtime with his offer of an Indianapolis 500 ride to NASCAR stud Tony Stewart on the same day as the Coca-Cola 600.

COCA COLA 600 ODDS

Hello drawing board. I’ve been missing you. And like that stupid song on the radio, I need you now.After making fun of people who bet on all-star races, I bet on the Sprint Cup All Star-Race, stunningly lost (Jimmie Johnson got hosed, and I’m bitter) and now sit down a fake $350 as I bet every Sprint Cup race this year.This is why I sit back in front of the drawing board.
