As I mentioned in my last post, Tony Stewart appeared at a grand opening of the new River Run Xfinity Comcast retail store in Jacksonville, Florida. The store showcases the innovation and speed of Xfinity products, and is designed entirely around the needs of customers, offering consumers an opportunity to explore and interact directly with the latest Xfinity products and services. At the grand opening ceremony Tony was also present with a check for $15,000 for the Tony Stewart Foundation from Comcast. For those not familiar with The Tony Stewart Foundation- it celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary as a foundation last year and has awarded $5.2 million to outstanding organizations serving children, animals and injured motor racing drivers in 41 of 50 states, including Florida!
What better way to start the new year then posting a Tony Stewart autograph appearance right out of the box!
Yes that is right- Tony Stewart will be doing an autograph appearance for Comcast as part of a grand opening of their Comcast Xfinity store River City location grand opening on January 8th!! Tony will be on hand that evening with Comcast executives to help open the store and to accept an awesome $15,000 donation by Comcast to the Tony Stewart Foundation! After the presentation, Tony will be signing autographs for the lucky 250 fans who get wristbands.
Here are the details: (more…)
I am going to be the first to admit I was a little distracted during the race in Texas for multiple reasons but mainly I had been running around on Saturday trying to get all the stuff I needed done and taken care of because I am heading off for Phoenix Wednesday so during commercials I was doing exciting things like laundry.
And wouldn’t you know it the one day that I decide to forgo listening to the scanner that the 14 has a fairly decent run! (more…)
While I didn’t watch the truck race at Talladega- I did hear about the last lap melee that ensued and it had me sitting down on Sunday with my usual trepidation about Talladega. I know you probably think I kid but this track makes me very very nervous. From what I heard of the ending of the truck race- I had every reason to be worried. Luckily there wasn’t anything major that happened. Well if you don’t count Austin Dillon’s little flight on the last lap.
Ryan Newman was in the Big Apple yesterday helping Wheat Thins promote Wheat Thins BIG Bag Bold Flavor. I really want one of these big bags for no other reason than the fact that they are indeed What Thins in a BIG bag! They are available throughout the month of October at your neighborhood 7-11 in the following flavors: Chili Cheese, Spicy Buffalo and Zesty Salsa for the awesome price of 2 for $2.00!! Personally I am a Zesty Salsa girl- but I must say I don’t recall ever tasting the Chili Cheese flavor. At that price why not says me!!
Here are some pictures from the event:
There are only eight more races of the 2013 NASCAR season now- eight. Usually at this point in the season I am starting to dread the end of the season- but I find myself looking ahead to 2014 so much that I don’t have that usual foreboding dread about the season ending. The reasoning behind this is two fold I am certain. The big fold being I want to see (a healed, healthy, raring to go) Tony Stewart back at the helm of the #14 Chevy SS and leading the way for the new Stewart-Haas stable. I excited about the team dynamic for Stewart-Haas Racing next season- I have made no secret of that. Tony Stewart, Kevin Havick and Kurt Busch…I think that has potential to be HUGE because while I am a Tony Stewart fan- I see nothing but talent in both Kevin and Kurt and think that having them work together has AWESOME written all over it (and yes I know that I am in the minority here but I do think Kurt Busch has HUGE amounts of talent).
