The first segment has ended, the slate is clean, summer is in the air, we have honored our fallen war heroes, and now it is off to the Mid-Atlantic states, Dover, Delaware to be specific, for a try at the, high speed self cleaning blender, also known as the concrete “monster mile”!
For those not familiar to Dover International Speedway, the race track is just a short few miles from one of the two Air Force bases that house the gigantic C-5B Galaxy, that being Dover AFB.
In light of the fact that we just celebrated Memorial Day, a day of honoring all who have served this great country we call the USA, that freedom is NEVER free, There is one more interesting fact about Dover AFB that you may not be aware of. Dover AFB is the place that all of our men and women, who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom, are brought home and prepared for their final ride home.
We should never loose sight of the fact that it is our young men and women are the ones that secure our freedom, and allow all of us to enjoy the lifestyle that we all have grown to love!
The Dover Picks
This week the overwhelming favorite choice of this motley group is “Cousin Carl” Edwards. Those who are hoping to start out the second segment from atop of the ol Redneck Fantasy League totem pole with a win from Edwards are, “Jerry The Buschwacker”, the undisputed winner of the first segment’s prestigious “Outhouse Award”, “A&M Aggie Sue“, “Dan The Numbers Cruncher”, and “Doug The Former Mudslinger-Now Turned Kettle Corn Dude”.
Next in popularity for Dover is Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Our first segment winner, Carlton, Edie, and “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle” are all AMP’ed up this weekend, hoping that Junior can log his second win of this season.
Likewise, there are three players that have jumped on the King of Beers bandwagon of Kevin Harvick this week. If you look really hard, and in not so conspicuous places, you might get a peek at Carole, Doug Jr., and Zee grabbing a few Buds!
Equally as popular this week is Denny Hamlin. “Jim, aka Chiefy”, “Jeremy The Coach”, and “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit” are making a special trip down to their local FedEx office shipping “some whatever” they have to whomever they feel needs some of that “whatever”!
“Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie”, as well as his old man, “Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff” will be doing their best to help out ol Jeffie Gordon on his “Drive to End Hunger”!
Lastly, Marc and “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” are hoping that “Smoke Will Rise” this week!
If you add up all these players above, the total is nineteen, and therefore you will see that there is just one player left out, Let me add that it is very unusual that only one player has a pick all unto his or herself. Usually there is a few players that strike out on their own and have a driver all by themselves. However, not this week. One of our “newbies” has the honor of having a driver all unto herself, and that would be Lonna. We all know what that means, right?
She is “in bidnez” for herself!
With one third of the season behind us, it is once again time to “get your motor runnin”!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
