This week Nascar returns to “the last colloseum”, the world’s fastest half mile, better known as Bristol, baby! This is the track where we may see some paybacks from drivers that feel that the were wrongly treated by other drivers in the first seven races this year. Actually, I can expand that thought. The short tracks are where the drivers may/or may not extract their retribution for anything that may have hapened to them in their entire NASCAR career! (Jimmy Spencer never forgot!)
Our Bristol Picks
This week, once again we have a wide variety of support from our players. There are four drivers that have three players each firmly in their rooting section this week!
This week Dawn, “Doug The Former Mudslinger and Psychic, Turned Kettle Corn Dude”, as well as his son, “Doug Jr. The Crowned Prince of Kettle Corn”, are all hoping that the 2015 Daytona 500 winner, Joey Logano, can log his second victory of the year.
Meanwhile, “Jim, aka Chiefy”, “A&M Aggie Sue”, and Brandon sure would like to see Carl Edwards get his first win with his new ride, Joe Gibbs Racing,
Not to be outdone this week “Linda The Cookie Mom”, “Cole The Natural”, and his uncle, “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie”, are sticking with The Biff at Bristol.
Additionally the last of the heavily supported drivers, Kyle Larson, has in his corner “Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle”, “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and Password Queen”, and yours truly, “Leon The Retired Airline Captain, Part-Time Cardiologist and Strawberry Picker, and Your Most Humble Sheriff”.
Both Carole and “Dan The Numbers Cruncher” are hanging with and hoping that “The Delivernator”, Denny Hamlin, can grab his second victory of the season this week.
If you are doing the math, that totals up to 14 players who have like minds. And as we all know, a mind is a terrible thing to waste! But on further review, it can’t be overlooked that a few of these players did a very good job of wasting their minds all on their own!
Now for the remaining eight players, who are such great independant thinkers, that can only mean that they are “in bidnez” for themselves at Bristol!
I will repeat my often repeated phrase because we are at a bullring this week. ” All crewmembers please check your egos, your tempers, and above all your weapons at the pit gate”! You are not “ten feet tall and bulletproff!”
Good luck to all this week!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN”!
