Pre-All Star Star Race Thoughts & Changing Tony Stewart’s Oil

Posted by Amy in General | NASCAR

I was thinking this morning yesterday morning (because I had to post THIS instead)- Stewart-Haas got their first win at the 2009 All-Star Race.  It is no secret that Stewart Haas Racing is struggling this season- especially my beloved #14 team.  I would love for them to bust out an awesome race and win at the All-Star Race in Charlotte this weekend. I think the morale boost alone could carry the 14 team into the Sprint Cup Chase- elusive wild cards be damned.  Yeah I am already starting to get nervous about the points. I am a points watcher and 21st in points – well it gives me heartburn AND heartache. But I am hopeful that this season will turn around SOON and Tony and the #14 team will go on a tear- if anyone can do it- Tony can.

Speaking of which- I occasionally will peruse my website stats and one of my favorite things to look at is how people end up on my page.  Someone recently did a Google search for “why is stewart haas racing racing doing so badly.” They ended up here at BadGroove as if I had the answer. If I had the answer I would tell the team straight away so we could END the bad part of the season.  Let’s just say the other day I came across my $2 bill and I remembered that eons ago I read that Tony said that he thought $2 bills were lucky.  Don’t make me send you mine Tony Stewart because I so will.

Anyway- the winner in the Mobile 1 Under The Hood with Tony Stewart was not me-but I didn’t think it would be.  Honestly I forgot to vote a couple days so I don’t think I got in enough votes. Anyway the lucky winner was Sandra Clark…here are some pictures from the event…looks darn fun to me:
