Yes! Finally finished with work. Had to run a very important errand with the wife! So, back to our little discussion from this morning. We should all know by now that NASCAR has changed the qualifying procedures in the upcoming 2014 season. I first heard there was only going to be a change in the lower divisions. Then word started to spread around twitter, until I saw the official release on their website. For those who may not know, here is a brief synopsis of the EPIC change; Read more
So for anyone who may have a Twitter or those who read NASCAR’s website on a daily basis or, unlike myself, have television… Knows there has been a few changes to the way NASCAR will qualify this coming season. I’m not really here to break it down and analyze it much like the NASCAR website will do. [Here is a link to the story, with a video the help explain] Read more
So our most recent driver Molly Helmuth has released her new paint scheme for the 2014 season. I took the liberty of adding her photo to her page. It’s a HUGE change from the previous paint scheme (black & green, with red numbers. I thought it looked pretty sweet). She went with complete white car, black & red trim plus red decals. Head over to her section of the blog. Drop a line in the comment feed to let her know what you think. Also don’t forget to head over to her we page and Facebook page for more information!
Good morning everyone! Today we release another featured driver in The Driver series! I am really excited about this one! For a couple of reasons, she is the first female driver to participate in my new blog, so I want to say thank you very much! Not only that she is from the west coast! Running Late Models in Washington state! Read more
Well guys and gals! Tomorrow is the release of another new driver to The Driver series. I really like this weeks post. It will certainly be an eye opener in more ways than one. This driver will break more than just one milestone for the blog. Just working on some final touches, looking to have it posted by noon tomorrow!
I also wanted to announce a mini story to the blog! Working on some details but I really want to right a short story around the racing community. Once I get more details ironed out I will be sure to post them. The way I will work this out is every so often, possibly the weeks between the driver series, a new chapter of the story.
This is also something new to me. I have written small stories for personal use and then of course educational purposes! I’m in the process of laying characters, plots and all that jazz. PLEASE if you have any constructive criticism or things you like to see out of a blog let me know. I would love the input! Always welcome to leave a comment bellow!
So the other day I had this dream. Now this dream is how you know that sports is a major part of my life. The dream was set in a mixture of three venues I have been to. At first it was one of those fuzzy dreams where you can’t really see in clear who people are. So let me set this up a little bit. Where I come from we have a summer baseball league for college students. For some reason the dream started underneath the grandstands. A pretty old stadium too so the least, all steel beams and wooden bleachers, old school ticket booths with an iron gate around the complex.
So I have been getting some decent feedback on the Driver Series page. Seems like a good amount of drivers like the idea and want to do it. Just a matter of trying to find time to answer some of the questions in-between all of the other things they do on a daily basis. The way things are working out I want to try to bump the series up to posting twice a month. Just want to throw this out here, if the responses slow down I will back it down to one driver a month.
Go check out the newest addition to this month. Mr. Kevin Morgan. Driver of the #11 UCAR at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Virginia! I have to thank all of the drivers so far who have responded, they all seem so excited to answer the questions. I know I am not some big time magazine with some national recognition that is sold in Barnes & Noble and Wal-Mart. What I am though is just like the divers of this series, local guy with a desire and passion for racing with dreams of making it big one day.
I appreciate all the excitement, hopefully this little blog can be just another stepping stone and getting your name out there for fans and potential sponsors to see. So head on over to Kevin’s page, get to know the guy a little more, check his pictures out, share his page on Facebook and Twitter, leave him a comment to read (remember no bashing I will take it down and require all comments to be reviewed before posting.)
Make sure to check back January 18th for the next featured driver!!
