This week both the Cup and the Xfinity teams make their first foray into The Lone Star state for 2019. If it is early Spring, then it must be time to let the big dog eat at the Texas Motor Speedway!
Yes race fans, it is time to head to the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex once again. For those who have never been to the Texas Motor Speedway it located about 10 miles to the northwest of DFW on some property once owned by Ross Perot’s Alliance airport confines.
OUR TEXAS PICKS
This week Carole, aka Rudy, Jeremy The Coach, and Linda B. The Cookie Mom are banding together to root for and support William Clyde Elliott, Jr. For most of us, we may better relate to his nom de plume, Chase Elliott.
There are four drivers this week that have garnered a pair of players (not to be confused with a pair of pliers) each. Alphabetically speaking the first driver to discuss is Jimmie Johnson. Jumping on the Mr. Seven-Time bandwagon is Jim, aka Chiefy, and Dan The Numbers Cruncher. Both players would love to rack up a big number to be added to their segment totals! Both Chiefy and The Numbers Dude would love to see ol J.J. drive his hot rod into Victory Lane Sunday.
The next driver to discuss would be Erik Jones. Rooting for Jones this week is Karen The Highly Opinionated Southern Belle as well as Leon The Retired Airline Captain, Cardiologist, Part-Time Strawberry Picker and Elephant Driver, and Your Most Humble Sheriff. Both are hoping that the Jones Boy can bring home the hardware at Texas.
Meanwhile, Snoopy Dawn and Wild Bill The Pretzel Man are firmly behind “Young Money”, aka Kyle Larson. Again both of these players would love to see “Young Money” end his 53 race winless streak at Texas.
Lastly, Bernie The Bay Area Bandit and David The Mudslinging Throttle Masher are on the Martin Truex, Jr. bandwagon. They may be using their Truex card at the right time, since we all know that for the past two years Truex has been killing them at the 1 1/2 mile size race tracks!
This week things are more normal regarding how the players picked their dudes for the race. We have seven players who are exercising independence this week, which really means that they are all in bidnez for themselves at Texas!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR BELTS TIGHT, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
