    2021 R-F Race Ratings

    Once again, I’ll keep track of our average ratings for the Cup and Xfinity races here. The usual caveats apply, but I’ll just post here as a refresher: - Only ratings for the race will be counted, will not count ratings for the winner or the TV coverage. Also will only count ratings if a...

    New Ride

    So I picked up a new-ish truck today. My Dad is getting up in years and had an ‘02 Silverado that was on its last leg, and he wanted a little bit smaller truck that would be easier to maneuver. So I decided to give him my ‘16 Nissan Frontier and this is its replacement, a 2019 Ford F-150 with a...

    2020 R-F Race Ratings

    I was a little bummed this year because I would always get a PM from Johali right before the Daytona 500 asking if I would be doing this thread each year. Well my friend, indeed I am. Same conditions as last year, I'll only be tracking Cup and Xfinity (the Truck Rate the Race threads usually...

    Drivers you used to hate but now respect

    Ok, maybe hate is too strong a word, but are there any drivers that you had a strong dislike for at some point that you came to respect or even like? The main one that comes to mind for me is Jeff Gordon. I had several reasons for not liking Gordon. For one, NASCAR and the sports media...

    My New Buddy

    I’m now in my 40’s, but for the first time in my life I’m a dog owner. This is Buster, a Pit Bull/Labrador mix who has quickly become my new best friend. He’s about 7 years old, we adopted him from my father-in-law, who is getting up in years and wasn’t really able to take care of him anymore...

    Ford killing off most of its cars by 2020

    In the continuing death spiral of the American passenger car, Ford has announced that by 2020 the Mustang and a new Focus hatchback (which will more closely resemble a crossover) will be the only cars it will continue to produce. Everything else in their lineup will be either a truck or an SUV...

    Tony Stewart's take on super-young drivers

    I gotta say, I kind of agree with Smoke here. http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2018/04/06/tony-stewart-absurd-kids-can-race-full-size-car-when-they-cant-get-a-drivers-license/ I didn't know until reading the article that there have been kids as young as 9 racing Late Model cars. That's a little crazy.

    20 Years Ago Today

    I never was a big Dale Sr. fan when he was racing, but his Daytona 500 win 20 years ago today remains one of my favorite moments in NASCAR. Seeing him finally get it done after being so close so many times was pretty awesome.
