This was the first night race of the season, third race for the Car of tomorrow and what an exciting race it was! It would appear, to this reporter, that the Car of Tomorrow produces a really close and exciting show for the spectators. It definitely has my vote for running the entire 2008 with that car!!!
Jeff Gordon finally won a race at one of the three tracks that has eluded him. He also tied Dale Earnhardt, Sr. for fourth place in toal wins in a NASCAR career, 76. For those who are not intimately familiar with NASCAR, Richard Petty has 200 wins, David Pearson has 104 wins, Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip are tied with 84 wins each. Dale Earnhardt,Sr. and Jeff Gordon are tied with 76 wins in their racing career. Jeff is the only race driver on that list that is still an active driver!
Now for more purtinent news. The investigation has gotten into full swing! “The Committe to Get Blackmarket Larry Baucum” has really come across some very “damning” evidence. It appears that Director of Competition, Robin Pemberton and NASCAR President, Mike Helton have gotten on the band wagon with this investigation! The Director of Competition has sent out a Notice of Compliance to all race teams. In that Notice, sources close to the investigation have revealed to this Committe, it states that there is reason to believe that the Lowes #48 crew chief, Chad Knaus has been leaking information to “Blackmarket Baucum” regarding setups and performance enhancing additives that have a chilling effect on their race cars. “Blackmarket Baucum”, it would appear, has turned those bits of information into a huge advantage of picking winners!
This is all that The Committe is willing to unveil at the present time, after all it is an ongoing investigation! If you have any information tha would lead to the arrest and conviction of “Blackmarket Baucum”, please feel free to contact “The Committee to Get Blackmarket Baucum” by leaving a comment at this web site.
The standings after Phoenix are as follows:
The New Sheriff
If you missed the race yesterday, you missed an exciting last lap!! Texas has had 13 races there and yesterday was the first repeat winner! Jeff Burton, who won the first race there in 1997, pulled out a last lap pass for the victory!!
Speaking of victory, we have to find out what Larry is doing!! It looks like I am going to have to write the check to him and we still have five races to go for this segment!! I believe that there are sources that have come forward to offer eye witness accounts of rules violations! “The Committee to Get Richard The NASCAR Picker” has reconvened!! It has changed titles to “The Committe to Stop Blackmarket Baucum”!!!! More to come later.
Which reminds me, you all need to start to get your picks ready for the next segment. I will send out to all the reminder with the tracks for that segment soon.
Here are the standings :
10. Rick————– 156
As we all know, last Sunday was Easter. It is one of those holidays that families comes together to visit, celebrate the occassion, and generally have a great afternoon. Jeremy and Stephanie invited Karen and I over for the afternoon and dinner was very good, thank you very much!!! Cole, my grandson, had a ball on his “Easter Egg” hunt in his back yard. It was so much fun to watch his face light up with each egg that he found.
Holidays and kids, need I say more??? Gotta love them both!!!
I hope that all my family and friends had a wonderful Easter Sunday this year!
The second COT (car of tomorrow) race has concluded and I am sure that all the race teams have found out what they need to do to be competitive!!
The standings are really changing weekly. The competition is fierce and the suspicions are starting to run rampant! It appears that Larry has tapped into some secret information pipeline!!! Somebody please help us in our preliminary investigation and fact finding mission. If there is any information out there that could help in finding the leak, please feel free to submit the information to me. I will protect your identity at all costs!!
