I have to own it. I haven’t paid much attention to it this year. Which is a little messed up considering it is his last year driving. And that he has been my driver for 18 years now. The reason I started watching NASCAR. The reason I’ve got boxes full of memorabilia (“shit” as … Continue reading Never Like Junior
I just read a great article in the Wall Street Journal about NASCAR’s declining popularity and revenue. I've been a fan since Dale Jr's rookie Cup season. Not by coincidence. Since that time the sport's popularity has declined steadily. After Matt Kenseth cruised around in circles in 2003 and won a title after winning one … Continue reading My Two Cents On NASCAR
