Just Holdin’ My line!

Kyle Busch hits the wall after he was involved in...

TLVW once again is involved in wild finish at Daytona.  He also was involved in the “photo finish”  in 2007, when Jamie McMurray squeaked out a victory over Busch in the July Pepsi 400 by .005 of a second!  That is close!

For more on this exhilarating race join me at:


Well, there was more than just one “Big One”  Saturday night! Many of our picks got collected up in various forms in those high speed gatherings of drivers!

It is such a “handling ” track versus a speed track, that the drivers are on the edge continuously.  there is one song that fits this race, ” Stuck in the Middle with You”. The lyrics from that old Stealers Wheel song rang true!  “Clowns to left of me, jokers to the right, here I am stuck in the middle with you”!!!

Only Karen and Carolyn earned  single digits from the race!  The rest of us ate double digits for our choices for the Coke Zero 400!!  Yours truly gobbled up 39 points sending me right to the cellar!

With those big numbers that I ate, I am now in last place, and leading the race for  the “BOUDREAUAX’S BUTT PASTE AWARD”! Somebody help  me!

What did you think about the Coke Zero 400 Saturday night?  Exciting or not?  Was there anyone person to blame for that “Big Crash” at the end of the race? Sound off!

The Fireworks Are Coming!!

Nearly halftime at NASCAR as the boys visit Daytona for the second time this season.  For my analysis of the first half of this season join me at:


This is the third of the four “wild card” races for our fantasy league.  These 160 laps Saturday night under the lights will be just one big “Saturday Night Shootout”!! The double file restarts will also add to the excitement of the pack of 43 bumble bees swarming around the 2 1/2 high banks of Daytona!

The 13 of us have picked 8 different drivers to win, that means there just might be some shifting in the standings when the night is over and the fireworks have subsided.  In light of his lack of performance this season, Dale, Jr. is longer the overwhelming favorite of the fantasy league to win at Daytona.  However, he is still one of the favorites picked  by 3 have picked to win the 2009 Coke Zero 400.  The other favorite, picked by 3 as well, is none other thanTLVW (ol Kylie).

So Saturday night it will be time to light the candle. twist the wick, press the loud pedal, pull the belts tight, and let the big dog eat!!!
