August 2010


NASCAR just announced the schedule for 2011! Phew, Martinsville kept both dates and the west was re-sorted just a bit.
The season will also see an addition, Kentucky Speedway. The Bluegrass State hasn’t had a Cup race since 1954. Hop on over to NASCAR Ranting and Raving for a peek at 1954.
You know that I don’t have that much to say about another 1.5 miler being added to the season. Really. Short tracks! Give me short tracks!!
ahem.
Here you go!

Enjoy!

Clicky! Another 1.5 Miler? Let’s Talk 1954!

Hi all!
Usually, I would push my own column, which you should of course read:

This week, instead of focusing on Watkins Glen, I thought that I would look at the year that NASCAR stepped away from the track. I hope you enjoy it.

But today, I found the column written by Jeff Gluck, (a fellow SBN columnist) extraordinarily interesting.
Head on over and read a first hand account on what it is like to be a NASCAR spotter. Gluck had a super unique opportunity to spot for Boris Said at the Glen yesterday. I really enjoyed reading about it, and I think that you will too!
