The Black Helicopters Are Circling NASCAR Again

I'm beginning to think Alex Jones must be a NASCAR fan. The father of some of the wildest conspiracy theories you've ever heard on the radio surely must be behind the story behind Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s victory Sunday in the Geico 500. "Jimmie Johnson let Junior win it, because they're teammates, he needed a win to get in the chase, and besides Johnson owes Junior for Johnson's win at Talladega in 2011." The black helicopters are out once again and there's a run on tin foil in the NASCAR natio ...

Earnhardt-Johnson Bond Stronger Than You Think

Some things aren't what they seem . Remember how it was with Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jeff Gordon. To Earnhardt fans, Gordon was a girly man; a mere boy; a driver more fit for the "hoity toidy" world of open wheel than the rough and tumble world of NASCAR. no doubt, The Intimidator's jokes that called the "Wonder Boy's" manhood into question only further fueled it.

Coming This Sunday, Martinsville Madness!

  If not for NASCAR, most of us couldn't find Martinsville, Virginia on a map. This quiet little town (population 13,821- 2010 census) once famous for making plug chewing tobacco cranks up the volume for full contact racing this Sunday. If they were racing at night, "Heartache Tonight" by the Eagles would be a perfect theme song. "Somebody's gonna hurt someone, before the night is through. Somebody's gonna come undone, there's nothing we can do." This is where it all started for N ...
