It is the “dog days of summer” and “the boys of summer” will be “back home in Indiana” this weekend!
NASCAR rolls into the intersection of 16th and Georgetown Streets, the mecca of open wheel racing, the very historic and holy grounds known as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. There is so much history associated with this old, but yet very vibrant, racing facility in the heart of Speedway, Indiana.
Our Indy Picks
Leading in this weeks picks to win the race at Indy is Kevin Harvick. In “Freaky Fast” Harvick’s hip pocket this week are Dan The Numbers Cruncher, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit, Lonna The Quilt Angel, Kathy The Church Forecloser, as well as Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff. All five of these players, if “Happy Harvick” is successful in logging another victory, will more than likely rush down to Jimmy John’s and grab one of their favorite sandwiches Sunday in celebration!
In observing the supporters this week for Jimmie Johnson, it is an all guy thing. Strange you might think? Or could it be that these four guys, Jim, aka Chiefy, Jeremy The Coach, Skid-Marc, as well as David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey, who were spotted this week at Lowe’s, are just all superb DIYers! I’m just sayin…..!
Meanwhile, Karen the Highly Opinionated Southern Belle, Carole, aka Rudy, as well as Doug the Ageless Sprint Car Driver are hoping that “Rowdy”, Kyle Busch, could finally post a victory and break his year long winless drought!
Lastly, both Snoopy Dawn and A&M Aggie Sue are solidly behind the hottest Cup driver this year, Martin Truex, Jr.
This week we have a very high number of independent thinkers, seven in all. Those seven players, as week all know, are in bidnez for themselves!
Good luck to all!
Can you hear Don Henley faintly in your ears?
“Nobody on the road,
Nobody on the beach.
I feel it in the air,
The summer’s out of reach.
Empty lake, empty streets,
The sun goes down alone.”
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’ GO RACIN’!
