The NASCAR teams are heading down to the deep South this weekend. The haulers are dodging all the bad weather, torrential rain, tornados, and possibly an errant right cross from Ambrose, on their way to “Sweet Home Alabama”, Talladega!
Could “The Pied Piper of Talladga”, aka Dale Earnhardt, Jr. pick up his second win of the season? However, it has been a few years since Junior rolled his hot rod into Victory Lane.
Having said that, there was a time when Junior ruled Talladega back in his old DEI #8 Budweiser Chevy! We all know that he is extremely good at both of the plate tracks of Daytona and Talladega. For years now there is this eerie unspoken idea that he, too, like is Dad, can “see the air”! If you question that idea, check out his finishes over the last six years at Daytona.
Our Talladega Picks
This week the redneck gang is really widespread on their choices for Talladega! There are five drivers that have two players each in their rooting section!
This week both “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” and “Jeremy The Coach” may be contemplating hanging out down at the National Guard Armory, watching the race. I am not sure if they have a flat screen TV there, but nevertheless, both of these guys will be wearing their red, white, and blue, all the while rooting Dale Jr. on for the victory!
Likewise, “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle” and “Jim, aka Chiefy” might be seen down at their local Fastenal store trying to find an appropriate set of nuts for their project, all the while hoping that Edwards drives his Ford Fusion into Victory Lane!
Edie and “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit”, once again, may be hanging out at The Dollar General Store, purchasing a few last minute things for their weekend endeavors, and looking for that yellow #20 JGR Toyota of Matt Kenseth leads that pack to the checkered flag.
Additionally, Carole and “Dan The Numbers Cruncher” are rooting very hard for the “beer wagon” of “Blazingly Bad” Brad Keselowski to roll into Victory Lane Sunday,
Lastly, “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie” and his father, “Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff” will be pounding down gallons of 15Hr Energy Drink, and hoping that Clint Bowyer can log his third Talladega win Sunday!
That leaves the rest of The Redneck Fantasy League, six players, who are “Lone Wolves” this week, and, as such, are “in bidnez” for themselves this week.
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
