YEY – Speedweeks are officially (and finally) here and so is the first TQMS (The Quotable Mr. Stewart) of the season:

“You look at marquee events around the world, and not only in NASCAR but in all of motorsports – the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 24 Hours At Daytona, the Indy 500, the Knoxville Nationals – and to be a driver that can cross off one of those marquee events as a winner, that cements your legacy in motorsports. To be able to win the Daytona 500 is the ultimate dream of a racecar driver.”Tony Stewart, Team Release, February 11th, 2015

I know several people who ride motorcycles. It’s popular here because our local race track, LAGUNA SECA holds several major bike races, plus a neighboring town hosts a 4th of July bike rally.  During these peak times our local roads and highways are inundated with motorcycles of every type and riders of every skill level.

I just wanted to alert you to two fabulous opportunities you have to interact with NASCAR drivers next week ONLINE!

First one is on July 10th on Facebook. Fans have the chance to interact with NASCAR legend Richard Petty and his driver Aric Almirola.  Aric will host a Facebook chat with King Richard Petty live on Wednesday July 10th at 3:00 PM (EDT) on the STP Facebook page.

And STOP THE PRESSES- Tony Stewart (our favorite driver and beloved twitter-aphobe that we all know and love) will be doing a TWITTER CHAT!  From what I can tell it looks like he will be taking over the Indianapolis MotorSpeedway twitter account (@IMS) at some point on July 11th. There wasn’t a time listed- but you can start asking questions to him now using #SuperWeekend.

Qualified: 25th

Finished: 20th

Race Winner: Matt Kenseth

Points After Kentucky: 16th.  Sigh. 22 points out of 10th, and 153 out of first- another tumble.

My Mood After Kentucky: Not good.

Unfortunately I really don’t have much to say…so here are some pictures from the race that I dug up surfing the web: (more…)

When the opportunity to give one of my readers a GoBowling.com 400/Pocono Raceway prize pack came across my desk I admit I jumped at the offer! Who doesn’t love free stuff? (more…)

It’s funny to me how sometimes I start a post planning on it going in one direction and then something happens and it ends up going in a totally different direction to me. That happened with this post. AMY

It all started with a fun fact.  Yesterday (today is 6-12-13) I was checking my calendar that I have in my office at the day job when I noticed this little tidbit at the bottom- which is kind of funny since the tidbit is about June 11th and it just happened to be June 11th:

June 11th, 2006, Tony received his 100th career top-five by placing third in the Pocono 500.

I posted the picture above on my instagram (click the picture to see it on Instagram.com) with the following caption: A #TonyStewart fun fact of the day… I wonder how many Top Five Finishes he has now… Anyone know? (more…)
