    Nascar 2010

    NASCAR coverage returns to the Speed Channel tonight, with the nightly show "Race Hub" at 7:30 EST, so I figured it was a good day to start our annual NASCAR thread.

    Only 34 days til the 500, and 26 days til the Shootout...almost time to go Racing boys!!!

    I almost started a NASCAR thread yesterday when I posted the link to the History Channel program, "Madhouse". You have to watch it! It was funny and really good.

    Amazing what people will do and do to go racing! Check it out.

    It's a weekly series about racing in the Winston/Salem area at a track that's known as Bowman Gray. It follows two families that compete against each other during a four month 16 race series.

    I think they should change the name to "Nutcases".

    The best part of the program?

    One of the racers goes to a school where there are some 5-6 year kids to do a meet and greet.
    He brings his car to the school and the kids are into checking it out. They start to chant, "Start it up". THe driver starts the car up, the kids are more animated and the last shot is of one kid jumping around yelling, "Junior Miller sucks!"

    (Miller is the home track bad boy that wrecks people to win races...)

    IT was a great program and I really look forward to watching the series.

    But wouldn't a good scrap after a SC race be a ton of fun?

    I was LMAO at the previews of the fights.

    Imagine having to have a security detail walking you out to your car!

    I have my DVR set to record everytime a new episode is on. I watched last night...looks like the off season has been good to Tony, Denny and Kasey. They looked relaxed and happy. Course for Tony, who wouldn't be after a 2 1/2 week vacation in Australia?

    For anyone keeping score at home (and it may just be me entertaining myself!) Michael's team (which Marcos Ambrose was also a part of) was running 6th overall and had a good lead in their class when they got caught up in someone else's wreck. Not sure if they are completly out of the race or not.

    So many places I would have loved to be this weekend...Fn Fest in Daytona, Chili Bowl in OK, Watching the dirt races in Tucson, AZ (Kenny Wallace is running there).....but I guess being at home keeping up on all of it on Speed, Twitter, and YouTube works too!

    I noticed the other day that Joey Logano is left handed. Am I the only "lefty" that doesn't curl my hand around like a twisted freak in order to write?

    I don't know about the "twisted" hand, not being a lefty myself, but several of the drivers are actually left handed. Tony Stewart, Dale Jr, and Terry Labonte are the first to come to mind.

    I finally got to watch all of Friday's Fan Fest coverage. Jeff and Joey were really funny, and so were Ryan, Matt and AJ. Haven't got through Saturday's yet.

    looks like Hornaday and Kvapil are too. I know some lefties curl their hands around but Joey did it more extremely than most I've seen. It's like he was trying to sneak up on the Sharpie or something

    You know I didn't even notice that Joey was a leftie when we met him in Charlotte, but it's the first thing I noticed the other night when he was doing his autographs. I didn't know so many of the guys were lefties.
    Gosh and I even have a picture of him signing mom's shirt with his left hand. Boy am I observant

    Does anyone watch the "Lucas Oil/On The Edge" programs?

    I love that show. The racing is great, But, the announcers are the best.

    The yelling, screaming and "OHHHHHS" that come out o- their mouths is the
    -unniest thing, I am sorry that they just do the highlights o- each race/event.

    It reminds me o- watching the program with my stupid brothers and nephew.

    We do the same thing-scream and yell like morons when we watch racing.
