Randy Moss Motorsports has gotten its first win. Yes, it is a strange day when we post about NASCAR Truck Racing, but ya know, its Randy Moss’ team so cut us a little slack. Mike Skinner was the driver who delivered RMM’s first win on the circuit last night despite wretched weather which caused two weather delays and a shortned race.
“We got us one. It’s just really, really cool,” Skinner said. “We have a lot of effort going on here to build this whole program at Randy Moss Motorsports. We’re just going to keep digging and hopefully we can get another one or two of these things before the year is out.”
Yes, one or two more wins. Way to reach for the stars Skinner. But really, what do I know about NASCAR? Nothing at all. I do know that this is probably a better investment of Randy’s money than say thoroughbred racing or something. I wonder if more players are going to try something like sponsoring a team in the future.
Not like Gilbert sponsoring a video game team, that is just crazy, I can just foresee someone like Albert Hayensworth buing into a NASCAR team with his 100 million dollar contract…just pray they’re more better than he is behind the wheel. It could be a new trend! I mean, Joe Gibbs has done pretty well with it, why not some more athletes! Screw that dying industry of horse racing or opening restaurants with your name on it that are doomed to fail, get in on the not as badly dying industry of automobile racing! GIT R DONE!! Or something…
My ears! The goggles do nothing! What the hell is NASCAR thinking? Normally we wouldn’t bother writing a post about NASCAR but something should probably be said about Kevin Costner signing on with them to provide music and personal appearances.
Bitten and Bound reports that Costner’s band Modern West will be featured on NASCAR.com and presumably this means NASCAR broadcasts as well. They must want to drive people to Formula 1. You think we’re being too harsh? You be the judge.
I’ll suffer through The Postman before I listen to any more of this. I may not know country music but I know bad music is like pornography. I may not be able to tell you what it is but I know it when I hear it. I’d tell Costner to stick to acting but we’d still lose. No one needs to be subjected to his movies if he’s going to offer up crap like that Coast Guard movie with Aston Kutcher. Anyone see Dan Duquette lately? This smells like one of his personnel moves.
This might just be the coolest thing I’ve seen all year. Auto racing is for wimps, rocket racing is for real men. The Rocket Racing League yesterday displayed its prototype “formula one” rocket powered aircraft that will be the vehicle the league will use to run its races. That is freakin cool. How does one race rocket planes you ask? Well the planes will fly through a three dimensional course that shows up in the HUD (heads up display) of the pilots, and i assume on monitors for people on the ground. Think of it like that old nintendo video game Star Fox, only in real life…and without the dumbass animals talking to you the whole time.
If you want to watch an example of the racing, watch this video
Its about time that someone does something cool like this. I have never gotten into NASCAR or INDY or F1 racing at all, seemed too boring to me watching cars go around circles or closed loops, but this…this is different. It could be like watching a race scene out of a bad star wars movie in real life, only much better because that bastard Jar Jar Binks isn’t shucking and jiving all over the place. The only question is, which ESPN channel with this be on…or has Versus found something else to add to its programming besides the NHL?
The fact that NASCAR is involved with a discriminatory policy probably comes as no surprise to many of you. However it wasn’t enacted by NASCAR and it harms a group not used to oppression. NASCAR fans who attend races.
Tennessee passed the Non-Smoker Protection Act which bans smoking in public places such as arenas and racetracks. The result is that smoking is no longer allowed at Bristol Motor Speedway. That doesn’t sit too well with racegoers.
“You can drink as much beer as you want and get in your car and drive home, but you can’t come in here and smoke a cigarette,” [Freddie] Lochner said Saturday, while waiting out a rain delay in the track’s concourse. “Now, which would you rather have: A guy smoking a cigarette sitting next to you, or a guy who drunk all that beer driving down the road next to you?”
Cars can smoke but not people?? Well let’s not be too harsh. Drunk gets you laid and makes you funny to your platonic and sexual mates. Secondhand cigarette smoke just gets in your eyes and causes cancer. It also interferes with the awesome smoke coming from the #3 car and incredible amounts of smoke coming from the other cars and race equipment at track level.
This does seem rather silly at a track when there are numerous other ways to kill yourself like getting in the way of flying debris or as Freddie said, getting hit by a drunk driver. One could also get cut real good by a ripped tall boy can. There’s always the option of going as any other black guy besides Brad Daugherty. NASCAR ain’t no joke.
