DAUGHERTY: A LOT OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS LOVE NASCAR

ESPN racing analyst and team owner Brad Daugherty says that just because you don't see many African-Americans at the track, it doesn't mean they don't love the sport. Daugherty said it will take a black driver competing at NASCAR's highest level to get more African-Americans to attend races. If only those folks knew the legend of Tyrone Lighting. (Warning: Heavy swearing, mild smoking and light laundry.)NASCAR TV analysts have a job worth talking about (Richmond Times-Dispatch) ...

BRISTOL DRIVER INTROS

Did you miss the driver introductions at Bristol on Saturday night? Kyle Busch was introduced to 160,000 fans as Lesley Gore's "It's my party" blared from the speakers. (Oh, if only that was true.) OK, for real, each driver was introduced to a song of his choosing and was given a chance to say a few words to the crowd. Busch chose "Amazing" by Kanye West. No, I don't think that song will be charting in eastern Tennessee anytime soon. Props to YouTuber Cube11679 for the videos ...

KYLE BUSCH WINS SHARPIE 500

Kyle Busch kept his Chase hopes alive with a victory over runner-up Mark Martin at the Sharpie 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday. Busch sits just 34 points behind 12th-place Matt Kenseth for the final spot in the Chase. The win was Busch's fourth of the season. Martin had several chances to put the bumper to Busch in the closing laps for the win, but the classy veteran raced Busch clean, as you can see in the video below. Marcos Ambrose finished an impressive third.  ...

WILL HURRICANE BILL HIT BRISTOL?

When I heard that Hurricane Bill was forming in the Atlantic, I naturally assumed it was headed straight for Bristol, Tenn., site of Saturday's Sharpie 500. You know that's where this season is headed, right? Sometime between now and Nov. 22 a hurricane will cancel an entire race, destroy a track and float Paul Menard out to sea. (So it won't be all bad.) We have had rain delays, rain-shortened races and races postponed by rain. Why not a hurricane? It's the logical next step. Much like Carl Edw ...

HOW DO NASCAR DRIVERS USE THE BATHROOM?

 Today I will answer the most commonly asked question about NASCAR, acording to ask.com.  It is not "Who will win the Chase?" or "What brand of hair gel does Jeff Gordon use?" It is "How do NASCAR drivers use the bathroom?"  The truth is, NASCAR drivers are real people just like you and me, and they use the bathroom just like us ... one leg at a time.  No, wait, I must be thinking of something else, because the merchants of speed have their own u ...
