I don’t know if it was just me or what but that race in Charlotte seemed to be the LONGEST race of the season. It just seemed to be the race that would NOT quit. I find that it’s especially trying to watch race when my driver’s car gets damaged in the first 20 laps of the race. On lap 16 Tony Stewart damaged the nose of the 14 Mobil 1/Office Depot Chevrolet when cars in front of him checked up during the second restart of the race, causing him to effectively rear end another car (Brad Keselowski I think?) at high speeds. The results were not pretty: (more…)
I know I have been absent lately…I apologize and promise to get back into the posting groove very soon…but I had to share two things with you:
First I wanted to to share these pictures provided to me of Tony Stewart with some of the backpack recipients because I think the pictures are precious! Tony, with the help of the Office Depot Foundation, donated several thousand backpacks filled with school supplies to various organizations supporting children and education in the Charlotte NC area just yesterday.
I have made it no secret that I absolutely ADORE office supplies (especially pens and stickie notes) and when I was a kid I was always excited to get new school supplies. I still can’t go into office depot and come out with just what was on my list….I usually come out with about three times as much stuff (usually pens and stickies but all kinds of other stuff too). And sometimes when I was a kid my dad would come home with swag from promotions at work and I would always beg for the free pens and pencils (you know like united way or benefit fairs -those kind of things). So I know these kids are probably really stoked to be getting the backpack filled with goodies!! It’s a great program!
Secondly…Badgroove was given an honor of sorts (YEY me!!). We are ranked 10th on this website’s list of the top 20 NASCAR Blogs. How cool is that? We are in some GREAT company…so YEY!!
