Congrats to @Amy_Reimann & @DaleJr on their wedding day! A healthy #NASCAR marriage is simple - Dale turns left, but Amy's always right.

Well hell. Carl Edwards is my favorite driver. And he is retiring at the young age of 37. The reason hasn't been publicized, but some are speculating that the horrible grind of the season is a problem.

June Bug Tweeted this:

Dale Earnhardt Jr. ‏@DaleJr 5h5 hours ago

Interesting about Edwards. I can see him being lured back into the right situation. Although drivers retiring "early" doesn't surprise me.

------------------------------------

In minor news, minor league racer John Wes Townley is also retiring. He's 27.

Rico Abreu lost his ride in the truck series because of sponsorship issues. He is the 4 foot 4 guy who has done well in some of the other series. This sucks.

Take this for what it's worth: MO political commentator says Carl Edwards will run for Senate in '18 (last 'graph)

-----------------------------

MO stands for Missouri, which is where Carl is from.

I'm interested in Hoob's take on the new NASCAR rule that says "fix your car in the pit in 5 minutes or forget it".

My first thought was "Gee, why are we trying to trick shit up? Again?"

I wonder what caused this. I read the statements about safety and it reminded me of an incident during the year:

There was a case this year where somebody came on the track after a wreck and a part broke, causing him to hit the wall at high speed. Seems like it was Kyle Busch, but it might have been someone else.

I have more of a problem with crippled cars coming back out and shedding parts on the track. I would rather they fix that.

I guess the safety aspect deals with the fact that cars coming out of the garage are usually running way off of the pace. I think this rule creates more of the scenario you mention: rush jobs and sending the car back out half ass. I've always wondered if there's really that big of a difference in a DNF and finishing 50 laps down.

I forgot to mention that Danica's team is suing their former sponsor for breach of contract. She had signed a $15 million per year deal with Nature's Bakery. I thought at the time that they can't afford to do that, can they?

They can't afford it, and her team is suing their pants off as a result.

It won't be long before we see her as a back marker, struggling in an unsponsored car.

Maybe they can afford it if she would win something... ANYTHING... every once in a while.

Former driver Mike Wallace got the crap beat out of him after a Rascal Flatts concert this weekend. He was knocked out cold but they kept kicking him in the head.

I didn't like this guy at all when he drove and fuck him for going to a Rascal Flatts concert, but not even he deserved that.

I've been to a half dozen country concerts in my life, and the amount of young rednecks looking to fight someone is mind-boggling. The worst one of all was a Bellamy Brothers concert, which doesn't make any sense. I've never been to a bro-country gig, but I bet it is way worse.


The trial ended up in a mistrial several months ago because of a screwup. Today, Wallace and his family decided to drop the charges.

The season-opening clash at Daytona was today. Hamlin dominated, but stupidly blocked Crashalotski at the end, wrecked, and this caused Logano to win. But that's not what got my attention.

It was the large-titted, smiling black nookie girl in victory lane waiting to hand Joey a towel with the Monster logo on it to dry off with. He declined. That dumbass. I would have thrown her back for a big smooch.

The 2017 Monster season is under way. Kurt Busch, sponsored by Monster, won. Dick Hicks tweeted a "Hell yeah!" and was immediately told by some guy that it was rigged. Ain't no way that ending was rigged. I was hoping Kyle Larson would win and he nearly did.

This was the biggest wreckfest I have ever laid eyes on. Jamie McMurray caused two of 'em. Mark Martin called the race the Ambulance 500. He's right, forum.

I was just glad that turd Joey Logano didn't win.

35 out of 40 wrecked and only 25 finished. I had to take my kid to a birthday party and didn't get home until there were 75 laps to go. I stayed away from this race as long as I could.

About 15 years ago, there was a commercial for the IRL race at Texas. It was really odd, and the announcer ended the commercial by yelling that you can bring your cooler inside, and then he broke it over his head.

I just saw a commercial for NASCAR at TMS by Knoxie, and the bit was crazy and obviously was done by the same people. Knoxie mentioned a cooler, but he didn't break it over his head.

Lots of talk about how bad the start of the season is. Today at Atlanta, Harvick dominated the shit out of the race, but got a speeding penalty on pit road and lost. Krashalotski passed Larson with a handful of laps left and won. Even with this unexpected ending, this race was just damned awful.

A lot of things have been implemented in the past 10 years that haven't bothered me in the least. Pit road speed limits. Lucky dog rule. I can even live with Overtime, also known as the give Junior a chance to win rule.

But this segments thing blows goats. Let's put a few figure 8 tracks in the mix while we are at it. Or make them drive part of the race in reverse. What a mess.

Today's race at Las Vegas was really boring and I dozed off on the couch. I woke up and noticed it was still boring, so I went to wash the car. Came home and learned there was a fight in the pits afterward.

Kyle Busch went after Joey Logano but was intercepted by Joey's pit crew and ended up scuffling with them. Kyle ended up with a cut forehead. Not sure who I'm for on this one.

Martin Truex won the race and while being interviewed in Victory Lane, asked who won the fight.

Some people call Joey "sliced bread." The great Nascarcasm had this tweet:

HEADLINE: "SLICED BREAD VS. SLICED HEAD."

It looks like Kyle did connect with a right before being rassled down. I would link the video but I'm old and lazy.

Ryan Newman won at Phoenix on a pit stop gamble. I didn't want him to win, but after giving it some thought, I was ok with it. One of the things I love about NASCAR is sometimes people can gamble with strategy and steal a win. And that happened today.

I just noticed that Pete Hamilton died Tuesday at the age of 74. Pete drove a Petty Enterprises team car in the late 60s, early 70s and won Daytona in 1970. Young Hoob loved the guy.

Those cars are noted for their wild-ass wings they had. They were awesome. NASCAR had to make rule changes as a result of them.

Pete pictured with his 1970 Superbird.

I didn't know until today that Pete was a dirty yankee, from Massachusetts.

Stay away from this race.

The highlight of Martinsville was Ricky Stenhouse pushing Kyle Busch out of the way to avoid going a lap down before the end of the first segment. I laughed like a hyena when it happened, because it caused Kyle to lose the lead and someone else won that segment. Gentleman Kyle had this to say over the radio:

Hahahahah, fucking 17. What a fucking fucker. All that work for absolutely fucking nothing. Nothing!

Texas is this weekend. Stay away from the intersection of 114 and I-35W.

And stay away from this race.

Joonyer has decided to retire after this season. Unless something odd happens, he will finish his career with 26 wins, 4 concussions, and no championships.

Oh good grief, DW will break down in tears on the air this weekend. I think I will stay away from that race.
