This is Dale Earnhardt, Jr’s last “official’ race at Daytona! It is the last time that he will be there driving for Rick Hendrick, it will be last chance to win a race iat Daytona before his retirement. I am not sure what JUNIOR NATION will do after Homestead. Me, I am trying to find my niche with a new “favorite” race car driver.
Our Daytona Selections
As was mentioned above, it is Dale Jr’s last race at Daytona, but it has not swayed many of the fantasy league players from choosing him to get just one more “plate” victory before he moves on to another phase of his racing life. This week nearly one third of the fantasy league, six players in all, have chosen “The Pied Piper of Plate Racing” just one more time to win at ths historic race track. Those six players include Cole the Redneck Understudy, Carole, aka Rudy, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Jim, aka Chiefy, Karen The Extremely Opinionated Southern Belle, and of course one of the charter members of Junior Nation, Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff.
There are four drivers that have put together a rooting section of two players each this week.
Alphabetically, the first of those four drivers to discuss is Kurt Busch, formally recognized as “The Outlaw” This week Bobby Blue Crush and Skid-Marc are hoping that old KuBu can add the Coke 400 to his win at Daytona in the 500 this year.
Meanwhile, Kyle Busch has put together a coalition consisting of Jerry The Buschwacker and Dan The Numbers Cruncher as his Daytona boosters.
Next on the table is last week’s race winner from deep in the heart of wine countr, Kevin Harvick. Both Jeremy The Coach and A&M Aggie Sue are hoping that “Freaky Fast” Harvick can go back-to-back with a victory at Daytona!
Lastly, Linda The Cookie Mom and Zee, aka Sissy have put together a deal to ride shotgun with Martin Truex, Jr. for the Coke 400.
Good luck to all this week!
This weekend will begin the independence day celebrations for this country. Remember that when you are setting of those fireworks it would not be possible without all the sacrifices that our brothers, sisters, moms, dad, our aunts and our uncles have made. Remember also that freedom is NEVER free! So when the National Anthem plays and the flyby roars by, stand tall and remember those that only received a one-way ticket to the battlefield!
There are many families that have “Broken Halos, broken wings that used to fly”!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’ GO RACIN’!
