NASCAR heads to Texas this weekend. Friday night qualifying found Martin Truex, Jr. setting fast time, winning the pole for Saturday night's Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway. Truex turned a qualifying speedway of 190.369 mph in his Michael Watrip-owned Toyota. Last year's winner, Matt Kenseth will start second.
I love it when the son or daughter of a major sports star tries their hand at singing professionally. Especially when they try country music. Football legend Terry Bradshaw's daugher is the latest to give it a try.
One of NASCAR's oldest continuously-operating race tracks is running this weekend- Martinsville Speedway in Virginia. The first NASCAR-sanctioned race at Martinsville was held back in 1948. It
actually started as a dirt track, but was paved in 1955. Fifty-six different drivers have won pole qualifying positions in NASCAR's top division over the years. For Sunday's race, Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey Kahne will be on the pole.
Over the last few years we have all lived through some bad economic news in one way or another. Hopefully, things are starting to turn around, and in some areas the economic picture beginning to look a little brighter, but certainly not everywhere. Budgets continue to be tight in a tough economy (especially in local government), but here is something you don't typically see- a manager firing himself.
Dancia Patrick is now a full-time NASCAR driver in the Nationwide Series. She is also racing part-time in the Sprint Cup Series this year for her team owner Tony Stewart. Prior to coming to NASCAR, Patrick was an IndyCar Series racer, but she has never raced on dirt before. Well, almost never.
I just heard that Andy Pettitte announced on Friday that he is ending his retirement and is heading back to the New York Yankees. So to confirm, I headed to the Yankees website and there it was: Pettitte comes out of retirement, joins Yanks.
Greg Biffle has started the 2012 NASCAR season very consistently. Three great third-place finishes in a row in the first three NASCAR races of season. That consistency has taken Biffle to the top of the Sprint Cup Series point standings. Now he will start from the number one starting spot at Bristol Motor Speedway as he qualified for the pole in Sunday's Food City 500 race.
What do you do with old NASCAR race cars? If they are still in good shape you could sell them or maybe use them as show cars. But if they are wrecked? I mean really wrecked. Destroyed. A deposit in a junkyard is probably a good bet. But what if there is some significant racing history associated with it. Think Juan Pablo Montoya's No. 42 Target Chevrolet that was involved in the fiery on-track collision with a jet dryer during the Daytona 500 this year. What would you do with that car?
Little Big Town will perform pre- and post-race concerts at the 34th annual Budweiser Shootout on Saturday, February 18 at the Daytona International Speedway as NASCAR kicks off the 2012 racing season. The group is known for such hits as "Boondocks," "Bring It On Home" and "Little White Church."
We all know there are many reasons to watch the Big Game every year. From the pre-game entertainment, the commercials, the half-time show and the game itself, it seems there is something for everyone - even if you are not a football fan. Part of the attraction is the entertainment value of the ads. Every year there are some great ones. Scott Blaine gave you his top-5 favorite Super Bowl commercials of all time the other day. But do you know what celebrity has been in more ads during the Super Bowl than anyone else?
