There have been numerous observations made when trying to describe what it is like to race at Bristol Motor Speedway. But this weekend Darrell Waltrip made two that seemed to sum it up in a nutshell! One of his observations was; put a bunch of fruit or vegetables in the blender, turn it on, then take the top off while it is still running!! That is Bristol!!! The other observation that was equally appropriate was; take 43 of your neighbors’ cars and put them in a cul-de-sac and race 500 times around that cul-de-sac!!!! Both of these observations would leave your feeling either sick or very messy!! In either case there is a mess to clean up!!!!!
There are two things that get hurt at Bristol Motor Speedway, your race car and your fellings!! As a driver you can try your best to protect your race car. But short track racing is such that you cannot protect your feelings!!! When you put 43 cars weighing 3400 pounds on a track measuring .533 of a mile, things happen. At the start of the race all the drivers are very kind and caring, they practice the old game of “give and take”. But as the race lingers on and the laps start to wind down, the name of the game changes from “give and take” to just plain TAKE!!!!! They are willing to put their nose in a place where the end results is a broken nose, or at least cuts and bruises abound!!!
Watching a race at Bristol reminds me of a few songs. One of the songs is one from Martha and the Vandellas, “Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide” !!!!! Another song is by Steeler’s Wheel “Stuck in the Middle with You“!! I have linked both of these songs with video for your listening and viewing pleasure, just in case you forgot just what those songs sounded like!! Check them out!!!!
Ol Kylie (aka TLVW) really stunk up the show at Bristol! TLVW led 378 of the 500 laps Sunday. That is almost as many laps as TLVW last year at Bristol when he ran up front for 411 laps but last year he did not win that race!!! TLVW is the first multiple race winner of the new year. In fact the last three races have been won by a dude named Busch, Kyle-Kurt-Kyle!!! Is this year going to be a repeat for TLVW??????
It has been brought to my attention by one of our illustrious fanatasy league members that I need to call out a couple of individuals that just happen to be kicking our collective butts!! Prior to the Bristol race they have averaged a second place thru the first four races. That is unheard of in this league!! It would appear that both Jim and Jerry are trying to do what only one other person in this league tried to do, that would be Richard the NASCAR Picker! We were able to stop Richard the NASCAR Picker by our collective espionage work! Therefore, I call on my fellow players to rise up a stop this BUTT WHIPPIN’ WE ARE EXPERIENCING!!!
I NEED YOUR COMMENTS, ADVICE, AND THOUGHTS ON FOMULATING A PLAN!!!
