All Nighter

With several Cup drivers competing in this years marathon race I am following it closer than I normally would. A.J. Allmendinger was leading late last night when he developed engine trouble... too bad for the kid. He has tons of potential but cannot get a break. Latest news is the Ganassi Team with Dixon, Pruett and Montoya is running up front. That's no surprise.

Tune in to the Speed Channel at 7:00 am for live coverage.

Thursday was NASCAR's (poor) state of the sport address.
It seems Mr. France took full charge as the reining head honcho and made it clear as Mike Helton sat on the bench.

I don't envy Brian's position right now as it just seems to be the repetitive barrage of questions by the hungry Media folk. He'll do the right things and make solid choices... at least we better hope and pray he does. Perhaps he and Barrack should have lunch.

Yes Mr. Esquire... I am a member of NASCAR Media and have written permission to use their photos.

A cold day in hell....

Nice photo heh... yeah well with the economy continuing to falter many of us may find ourselves using these again. I personally like this relic.

Daytona is so close!! Nice and warm there.

A Long Winter

My Golden Retriever "Chase"

The last post was three months ago. Like the rest of the world, I too have been going through many changes. I watch and read as NASCAR also rolls with the economic downturn with massive team layoffs and mergers. It's hitting nearly every market.

The construction industry is as slow as I've seen it in my 30 year career. As a self employed contractor with an established client base it's rare for me to be out of work, but this is proving to be a very long winter.

I fight and never give up and my constant perseverance pays off with finding small jobs. These are not paying the bills, but it keeps things going in a forward motion.

We will get through this.
