NASCAR returns to the heartland of America, the Kansas Speedway, for a Friday Camping World Truck race and Saturday Sprint Cup race this week, under the lights. After the race last Sunday at Talladega, one would say how can there be more drama than Dale Jr. leading the last 27 laps with debris on his radiator inlet, water pressure pegged, and water temperature blowing through the roof? Well sports fans, get ready cause you just may see maximum drama once again!
Our Kansas Picks
Did the photo at the top of the page give away any secrets this week? One driver has five payers on his side for Kansas! Those five players, Carlton The Doorman, Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Jim, aka Chiefy, Cole The Natural, and A&M Aggie Sue all are in Ryan Newman’s hip pocket this week at Kansas.
Second in the amount of cheerleaders in his copilot seat this week is Carl Edwards. The four players hoping that Kansas is the race that Edwards will win his first race for his new team of JGR are; Lonna The Quilt Angel, Linda The Cookie Mom, Dan The Numbers Cruncher, and lastly yours truly, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff.
Matt Kenseth has a smaller cadre of rooters this week, just three players to be exact. That small list includes Jerry The Buschwacker, Brandon, and Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie.
That leaves nine players who profess to be independent thinkers for this week. But we all know that it really means that they are in bidnez for themselves!
Good luck to all, and when the race is over I hope that we are not just “dust in the wind”!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GOI RACIN”!
