JAY LENO AND NASCAR: IN PERSPECTIVE

 NBC is a mess. NASCAR might be a mess. So as I read about Jay Leno’s future and how it impacts all of late night television, it got me thinking the two worlds are pretty comparable, so long as you put things in perspective. Jay Leno is Rick HendrickBoth get whatever they want. Jay Leno wants $25 million a year and his old time slot back. So what if it was promised to another guy five years ago? Done.Rick Hendrick wants a juggernaut of winning drivers and big names like Dale Jr. ...

NASCAR CABIN FEVER REMEDIES

The Daytona 500 goes green on Valentine’s Day. The stock car portion of Speedweeks begins the previous weekend and for NASCAR junkies that seems like a millennium away. However, there is some quality racing action in between now and then. Racing fans fortunate to find themselves in certain areas of the country will be assembling in droves for some hot winter racing. Coincidentally, races two through five on this list all take place over the last January weekend. 1. The Chili Bowl. The T ...

THE NEXT DECADE OF NASCAR

Over the last few weeks many writers have reflected on what they considered to be the most memorable moments of the past decade. Some of those moments included the loss of Dale Earnhardt Sr., the safety improvements that followed his untimely death, the formation of the Chase and a landmark television package. While others have decided to take a look back, I am looking forward to the decade ahead. There are a number of events that will change the history of this sport for years to come. Much ...

NASCAR AND AVATAR: IN PERSPECTIVE

There’s no racing on TV. As a result, I’m stuck spending time with my wife. That recently included a trip to see the movie "Avatar." Much like Talladega, it was a visual show with a crappy story. Turns out "Avatar" is a lot like NASCAR when you put things in perspective. Here’s how:  Sigourney Weaver is Dale Earnhardt Jr.Both are big names. Both haven’t done much in awhile. Both have new endeavors that might lead to a comeback. Weaver’s ...

Here's a look back at "the year that was" with my top-five sexiest mustaches.Fifth place: Tony Eury Jr.If this mustache had legs, they would be tired, because this 'stache has been running through my mind all season.

2010 NASCAR SPRINT CUP PREDICTIONS

I’m bored.Like many of you, I work between Christmas and New Year. I’ve done all the work I can do at my real job, cleaned up boxes of photo albums at home and helped install a new bathroom. While listening to my wife advise/nag me about accomplishing these tasks, my mind wandered to the weekends of 2010. I can imagine it now. The sound of engines and Darrell Waltrip will force my wife away in disgust, leaving me alone with my beer, nachos and Paul Menard crashes. It’s under th ...
