Christianity, Brought To You By Ford™

In an event that threatened to destroy the Nashville Superspeedway with fire and brimstone, Pastor Joe Nelms christened a NASCAR Nationwide series race the most sacrilegious and heavily-sponsored pre-race prayer in history.

Florida’s Leaders Really Get It Now

By | 4 Comments

As a Florida resident, I like to keep up on the state’s top news, and I’m not talking about stupid stuff like a Sun Rail that could create thousands of jobs being shot down or the governor creating a new drug testing system for state employees and welfare recipients that directly benefits his own medical clinics.

DAYTONA 500

NASCAR Reporter Fired For Being A Fan

By | 2 Comments

As a casual fan of NASCAR, I’ll be the first to admit that watching cars turn left can be incredibly intense at times, so that’s why I was a little upset when I read a story about Sports Illustrated recently firing NASCAR writer Tom Bowles for cheering in the press box after 20-year old rookie Trevor Bayne took the checkered flag at the Daytona 500 on Feb.

The New Marriage Of NASCAR & Hip-Hop?

By | 25 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=164509"> The closest I've seen Black folks get to car racing is when everybody wore those god-awful Jeff Hamilton jackets, now relics from a sad sad time in urban fashion history. "Hardly anyone associates stock cars with musical sensations such as Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane. But NASCAR, a rival of the Indy 500 for fan dollars, is trying to bridge the countrified world of race tracks and the urban aura of hip-hop. "Music chronicler Vibe magazine is slapping its logo on rookie driver Darrell Wallace Jr.'s race car and promising extensive editorial coverage in support of NASCAR's Drive for Diversity program. Vibe is working with Wallace's race team, Revolution Racing. Team drivers were chosen in a tryout camp catering to women and minorities." <a href="http://www.indystar.com/article/20110123/BUSINESS/101230349/1003/BUSINESS/Watercooler-NASCAR-driving-hard-hip-hop-fans">[Indy Star]</a> There's no way I'd watch a race.

JIMMIE JOHNSON

Meet Your 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion

By | 8 Comments

<a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/rpm/nascar/cup/news/story?id=5835698"> Actually, make that meet your five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Jimmie Johnson. Jimmie Johnson wasn't the best all year. Not even close. When it mattered, though, he couldn't be beat. For the fifth consecutive year. Denny Hamlin and Kevin Harvick took the champion all the way to the edge this season, waging the most serious threats yet to Johnson's reign atop NASCAR. Only the outcome didn't change, and Johnson maintained his ironclad hold on the Sprint Cup. <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/rpm/nascar/cup/news/story?id=5835698">[ESPN]</a> I'm not even remotely a NASCAR fan, but you have to give credit where credit is due and winning a championship five years running is pretty impressive.
