I have taken up Fantasy #NASCAR again and am reminded how much I am NOT good at it. I had one semi-good season several years ago but I am pretty much convinced that was a fluke. Actually I think that it was because the group I played with used a simple version- you have a set team of drivers for the season. The ones I play in now you have to change your drivers weekly and I am terrible at remembering to switch drivers out. Do you wonder who you are playing against in these big public leagues? I do- because as this article proves- you never know whom you are playing against.

Which Celebrities Play Fantasy NASCAR?

The professional nerd in me loves how much NASCAR and it’s drivers have embraced social media. It’s a great way to engage the fans and create new ones. Nationwide driver Elliott Sadler gets this:

“Social media provides such a amazing opportunity for fans to engage with their heroes and people they really look up to,” Sadler stated. “Heck, I even get excited when I get a message back from guys like Larry The Cable Guy or Darius Rucker. I want to go one step beyond social media interaction and bring fans to the track for an unforgettable experience.”

So Sadler is using social media to reward his fans the race experience of a lifetime!

Prior to eleven Nationwide races fans will have the opportunity to win a VIP racing experience that includes a private meet and greet with Sadler, a tour of the No. 11 OneMain Financial Hauler, as well as pit and garage access throughout the Nationwide Series Events. All fans have to do to enter is tweet “#takemeto (race track)” to @Elliott_Sadler on Twitter and they will be entered to win the experience.

I know I would LOVE that kind of VIP experience!  The tracks this promotion will be available for are Auto Club Speedway, Iowa Speedway, Michigan International Speedway, Road America, Kentucky Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Watkins Glen International, Mid-Ohio, Kansas Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway. For more information on this #takemeto promotion, interested fans are encouraged to visit www.onemainracing.com.

If you are like me you love to watch the pit crews work. I have just spent some time in the NEON GARAGE at Las Vegas Motor Speedway watching all the teams work on their cars. This really cool video shows how Team Hendrick pit crews strive to stay in tip top shape for the rigors of their very physical job over the wall so that they can perform the ultimate pitstop and get their driver out on top. These guys are true athletes!

How do Hendrick Motorsports Pit Crews Stay in…

The training for the Hendrick Motorsports pit crews goes beyond lifting weights and practicing live stops.

FINALLY! I thought it was slightly cruel of Mobil 1 to only give us a small teaser of Tony Stewart Webseries!!  The first webisode of Mobil 1′s series Smoke IS The Bandit is out for our viewing pleasure!

Here it is for your viewing pleasure if you haven’t had a chance to see it:

Absolutely LOVE the giggle!  I love this series so far (of course I am quite biased because not only is Tony Stewart my driver but I have loved this movie FOREVER! I would love to know how long it took to create this series. I hope they will release a blooper or behind the scenes video (hint hint hint).  What do you think?! I love Hermie Sadler and Ricky Craven! Can’t wait for the rest!

Next Episode will be released March 11th! Keep your eyes peeled at the Mobil 1 Facebook Page!

NASCAR Driver David Gilliland took an interesting side trip on his way to Las Vegas Motor Speedway this year. Check out the story on Fan4Racing’s blog! I love these kind of personal interest stories that I might not otherwise catch! A fun read!

I have been waiting and waiting on this since someone (Stewart-Haas Racing likely- but I don’t remember who exactly) tweeted out a picture of Tony dressed up as Burt Reynolds in Smokey and The Bandit last year. Well today we find out that this is going to be a six part web series- and we even got a little teaser video released today for Smoke IS The Bandit:
