Did I ever SLACK in writing here over the holiday or what? Sorry- but my “real” job gives me the week after Christmas off. Don’t be jealous- it’s really just the holidays we don’t get off during the year that everyone else does. So I got home and comfy and LAZY and totally did not feel like writing more than I had to. I did write this over at Racing In America- but it was like pulling teeth…I really didn’t want to do it. See how I get all lazy when given the chance. Anyway I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas filled will family and love and a prosperous New Year. Hopefully you didn’t spend your New Year’s Eve the way I spent mine- trying to calm a very freaked out Roxy while our neighbors set of fireworks and bottle rockets….at least that is what I hoped it was…either that or they declared war- because it was LOUD and Roxy hates loud.
So Tony is racing sprint cars in Australia and is doing pretty good so far- placing second in one race, and third in another. He races more down under on Jan. 14th and 15th! I hope he wins on the 14th. It’s his number and my birthday so it would be a doubly good time to win. While Tony is on his Australian racecation I have found some fun NASCAR related things to tell you about.
First off is the 2011 Hottest Driver Tournament over at The Fast and The Fabulous. It’s a random seeding of 38 drivers where YOUR voting will determine the “Hottest” driver. Of course you will want to go over there and vote (FOR TONY) for your favorite driver…it’s something fun and Valli is really excited to bring it to you! Do it now!
Also- you might want to check out Jeff Burton in his cameo on television this Saturday night. He will be playing himself in a cameo in the fourth installment of Fox’s Family Movie Night offering “Change of Plans.” It has a star-studded cast including American Idol’s Brooke White, Phylicia Rashad, and Joe Flannigan. It sounds like one of those good solid heart warming stories…with a small cameo by Idol Judge Randy Jackson and NASCAR’s Jeff Burton, playing…Jeff Burton! Check it out on your local Fox affiliate January 8th at 8 pm.
