So Joey wins after his bold statement

Joey Logano, after boldly claiming the week prior that he was in fact the favorite to win the championship. True to the NASCAR way the other drivers put him down and simply dismissed his statement. Fact is Joey and his team are the ones who stepped up and took the championship from everybody else. A fairly big end to what was a most boring NASCAR season. Even the “chase” was quite a snoozer, despite the best efforts of the TV commentators.

Good job and congratulations  Joey Logano, and I hope that NASCAR can fix this downhill slide they are experiencing. I managed to get to my very first oval race this year and it was very exciting to watch. BUT, there wasn’t much else to see or do unless you did some sort of tailgating. Maybe it was the venue, but the other NASCAR race I went to at a road course there was a full days worth of things to see and do.

NASCAR Shenanigans


So Matt Kenseth with nothing to loose after wrecking earlier runs over and thru Joey Logano and gets a standing ovation from the crowd, and the darling of NASCAR Jeff Gordon wins the race getting himself a chance at the championship in his farewell year of NASCAR racing. With three eliminator races left and then the championship race on November 22nd. It seems all too much like a fairy tale ending. Is this more NASCAR “scripting” or is it just the way it happened to happen? Dont know, either way it is making for an exciting finish to the 2015 NASCAR year where TV ratings have been going down.

Pikes Peak Hill Climb

Rhys Millen in an all electric prototype in the Electric Unlimited class won this years Pike Peak Hillclimb , even after loosing one of the motors in his eO PP03 all electric car. He also set a new time record for battery powered cars with a time of 9m07.222s.

See the video of his run here:

You can hear a lot of things you normally would not hear without the roaring engine.

Empty Stands

One of the first things I noticed when watching this race.

There were NO SPECTATORS !

Robin Miller is spot on with this.

Sure you can, but why?

I’m all for making cool cars and all, but sometimes you really just have to ask yourself, not if you can do something, but should you.

Here is a prime example.
