    Been a busy silly season week. Chase Briscoe will be driving the Joe Gibbs Racing #19 next year replacing Martin Truex Jr. Christopher Bell accidentally let that slip out during a New Hampshire practice interview. Gene Haas has decided to keep the last Stewart Haas Racing charter and run one Cup car next season as well as the Xfinity car team. It's expected that Cole Custer will drive the cup car next year.
  2. Yep haven't slept well since. Last Saturday I planted flowers for her as she said she wasn't feeling good. She really didn't look good either. I contacted one of her friends and let them know they should check on her. They called her and apparently she told them she was great even though she wasn't. She asked me to grab her mail and leave it on her little table on her front porch if I happened to be grabbing my dad's mail so I did. Tuesday I noticed that Monday's mail was still there. Contacted her friend again and was told that if she's not feeling well she needs to call someone on her own. Wednesday I didn't get a text from her about trash day like every Wednesday so I tried calling both her phones and didn't get an answer so I contacted her friend again and told them she's not answering either phone. Also contacted one of her neighbors and they pounded on the door and didn't get an answer. So her friend called for a wellness check but police didn't have a key so didn't enter the house. We meet her friend there after work because she had a key. She refused to go in so my wife and I did and that's when we found her.
  3. What a week this has been. Dad got out of the hospital Tuesday. Found one of the elderly lady's I mow for dead in her bed Wednesday. These mid to upper 90's all week long have done a number on the plants and us. Wife had my birthday today planned out but of course "Mr. Dependable" was needed . So after the plans were ruined, might I add by the way for nothing I figured I'd get the lawns done so I could at least sleep in and relax tomorrow.

    Personally I think team radios should be off limits to the public because drivers are adults and will let the cuss words fly and other remarks not fit for PG tv. Children shouldn't hear that anyways. So far it doesn't appear NASCAR will be punishing Martin Truex jr. In other news Fox and Indycar have reached a deal. Fox will broadcast all 17 Indycar races of Fox stations. To make this happen Fox has moved all but 5 of the cup series races they will get next year to FS1. As an Indycar fan this is great news...but as a NASCAR fan this means I'm only watching 5 races on Fox next year. Though some of those were already moved due to the USFL games anyways.

    After getting stuck in traffic during one of the pit stop cautions he ranted about the other drivers and calling them retarded. And of course it is now making the rounds on social media with people hoping he gets fined or forced to go to "sensitivity" training.

    In the NASCAR Rumor mill today.... Kyle Busch is rumored to be possibly going back to Joe Gibbs Racing if Martin Truex Jr retires, which is a possibility after his R-word rant at Sonoma he might get cancelled by the easily offended. Noah Gragson is rumored to be heading to RCR and RCR is rumored to have bought a 3rd charter, possibly one of the SHR charters.
  8. Will Will Power just won the Indy Road America race.
  9. Since apparently they were told to do that by the district manager I figured I'd take it a step further and soaked the ground in weed and grass killer this morning since we're not allowed to have flowers there anymore so nothing will grow there for a long time. I am so over dealing with all the BS from this new district manager. Can't have this can't have that can't do this can't do that, fine for this fine for that. About ready to tell her to stick a 2x4 where the sun don't shine.
  10. It's based off the video game of the same name. Years ago Nissan did a tournament with Gran Turismo and the best sim racers got a shot at a Nissan factory race team. Got home from picking the car up at the tire shop today, turned out to be something I ran over though I've never seen a screw like that before, anyways the lawn crew was nice enough to weed whack our asters and allysums.
  11. It's been a fun past few days... Tuesday at work I came out to a flat tire. My hypothesis is that the lawn crew accidentally shot a screw or bolt into the sidewall because the tire was fine until the mowed and left. On 1st break it was fine, on lunch it was fine, after work flat. In my wife's building they have a portable air pump so they brought that out and was able to get it to hold air long enough for me to get it to a nearby tire shop. Got the call yesterday that the tire is unpatchable because of where the screw/bolt was but they didn't carry the brand tire that was on it so I asked if it still held air and told them I'd pick it up after work since I found another shop that sold the same tire. Well somewhere between the lift and parking lot the object fell out and left a hole and the tire wouldn't hold air anymore. So I finally gave in and told them just give me the cheapest tire they got that they can get on it today since the only options I had to choose from where Chinese knock off brands anyway. Guess I'll ride on that for a month or two and buy a whole new set. Ever since a regional chain out of Detroit took over that locally owned shop last year it has gone into the crapper. Also yesterday my boss got all defensive when I told him what happened with the tire. Thought to myself I'm not blaming you, just said it was most likely something got shot out of the lawnmower when they were mowing. During the winter when these guys plowed and salted the drive 4 coworkers got flats too so it's not like I'm the first one to complain about them. Heck if I didn't need the money I would call off from work today.

    The Xfinity race Saturday was way more exciting especially the victory lap Shane VanGisbergen did with burnouts and drifting almost the entire Portland track. A bit of sad news...Parnelli Jones passed away today. He won the 1963 Indy 500, Baja 1000 twice, 4 NASCAR Cup series races and multiple other disciplines of Motorsports races and championships.

    Kyle Larson finally got the waiver so he can continue in the championship hunt. Austin Cindric won the race Sunday in a surprise twist. Christopher Bell was the dominant car but blew up late in the race. Ryan Blaney would have won if he didn't run out of gas on the last lap. Another interesting thing I've noticed about some of the younger drivers this year, they're doing snuff during the race. Austin pulled a snuff pouch out of his lip during his victory speech. He isn't the only one either.

    Oh yeah Dale Jr said multiple times in his podcasts over the years that to run a competitive cup team requires $20+million a year. I could see Hendrick and Gibbs probably spending close to $150 million a year for each of their 4 teams. Haas was sponsoring one or two of the SHR cars almost every race so he was dumping more money than other teams. Floyd Mayweather has backed out of co ownership deal of whatever team it was he joined that ran a partial schedule last year. I could see Michael Jordan jumping ship from 23XI within a year or two if he sees it's not at least breaking even. Currently he's sponsoring either car a few races.

    I listened to the Dale Jr Dirty Air podcast this week, I see he's turned into a NASCAR corporate man now. Don't think I'll listen to that podcast anymore. Basically said he's sorry for the fans that stuck it out for the rain delay but that's the way it is and always was with them not restarting the race. Also said Kyle Larson shouldn't get a waiver. One thing I did agree with that he said they should just go back to 25th or better in points instead of being at every race in case something like this happens again or someone is having a family emergency they have to tend to.

    Clint Bowyer is getting back behind the wheel for the Nashville truck race. Will be in the #7 Spire Motorsports Chevy Silverado. https://www.jayski.com/2024/05/29/clint-bowyer-to-pilot-spire-motorsports-truck-at-nashville-superspeedway/ Front Row Motorsports did buy one of the SHR charters and will expand to a 3 car team https://www.jayski.com/2024/05/29/front-row-motorsports-obtains-third-charter/ I expect at least one of SHR's drivers to go there since I think 2 are contracted to Ford and Ford would want to keep them in a Ford. Josh Berry unfortunately isn't and I think chances of him finding a cup ride next year are very slim.

    NASCAR news

    If Front Row Motorsports is getting a charter that would explain why they let Michael McDowell go since 2 of SHR driver's are contracted to Ford and they will most likely go to FRM, one in the 34 and the other in the new charter team. Apparently the last charter available from SHR is going for $20-30 million depending on who you listen to on Twitter.

    NASCAR news

    Stewart Haas Racing will cease operations at the end of the 2024 season, sell all charters and all NASCAR related vehicles and tooling. According to rumors 3 of the charters are already spoken for; 1 going to 23XI, 1 to Front Row Motorsports and 1 to Trackhouse Racing. 4th one is still available. https://www.jayski.com/2024/05/28/stewart-haas-racing-will-shut-down-following-the-2024-season/

    NASCAR news

    A lot of the fans in attendance were pissed to because NASCAR execs kept saying the race will be restarted only to call it even though the track was mostly dried. Heck even the journalists were calling NASCAR out on it. Some people on Reddit are saying Fox had a lot to do with NASCAR calling it because it went over the allotted tv schedule.
