As a Twitter-oholic, I never could quite understand famous people who refuse to use the site. After all, wouldn’t sites like Twitter and Facebook give them yet another way to connect with fans?
But when I read Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s take on things, I began to understand his point-of-view. He says, “There’s tons of imposters out there. I don’t have a MySpace, a Twitter or none of that (stuff). There’s a bunch of imposters out there though that you have to beware of. I really would never get into social networking.”
I guess I can understand that. Then again, … [Read More]
I would like to thank John Beamer, one of the writers for F1 Pitlane, for contacting me recently to do an interview over at the site … to which, of course, I happily obliged. John is a great guy and they do a fantastic job over there, so I encourage you all to go give it a look and while you’re there, take a look at the interview.
A Stateside Perspective - NASCAR and F1
Ahh, yes … another glorious Friday morning, and I think you all know what that means!. Yup, once again here with me are Bruce Simmons from Bruce’s NASCAR Bits & Pieces, along with Charlie Turner from On Pit Row, and we’re about to get ”Loose in Turn Three” yet again!
We’re coming off a pretty big weekend in NASCAR, and it’s given us plenty to talk about throughout the week despite a bit a slower week as it relates to the news itself. Right here at Do You NASCAR, we’re going to rehash a bit of the same. With Joey Logano … [Read More]

It took 15 races with Hendrick Motorsports, and 76 races since Richmond in 2006, but Dale Earnhardt Jr. has finally once again reached Victory Lane - silencing his critics and giving Junior Nation something to cheer about. Earnhardt led five times on the day, last taking the lead from Jamie McMurray on lap 195. With the majority of the field making green flag stops for fuel in the last 20 laps of the race, Earnhardt fans watched nervously as the no. 88 team decided to stretch their fuel. Originally guesstimating themselves to be 2 … [Read More]

Take it as gospel if you like, but I personally find this one to be just a little too far-fetched for my realm of belief, and have promptly filed this story into my “We wrote this as a parody in jest of all of the ongoing Silly Season business that started 1 month into the season and 8 months before the season ended just so that we all have plenty to write about” file. (Yes, of course I abbreviate the names of the files on their respective tabs).
So, now that I’ve given you … [Read More]

Some of the most popular talk this year in NASCAR’s ever growing rumor mill has circulated around Tony Stewart and his contract with Joe Gibbs Racing, which currently carries him through the 2009 Sprint Cup season. With numerous rides potentially being opened for 2009, and offers reportedly being thrown at him all over the place, the media has long speculated that Tony has asked for an early release from his contract following the conclusion of this year, though sources have yet to confirm such allegations. Many want to believe him to be a … [Read More]
For those of you that have had yourselves so engrossed with the notion of Austin Dillon one day making it to the Cup Series level to run the Richard Childress Racing number 3 car that was formerly run by racing great, Dale Earnhardt, you may be unaware that yet another relative of a long-time car owner at the Cup Series level has embarked on his journey to future stardome through the ARCA/Re Maxx Series.

It’s another week off from points racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, but this week brings us something a little different … NASCAR’s annual All-Star weekend from Lowe’s Motor Speedway. For those of you unfamiliar with the format of this great race, it’s very different from what you’ll find in Major League Baseball, or the National Football League, or the National Baskeball Association. Instead of the fans voting in the best of the best, here in NASCAR, the fans will vote in only one entry. The rest of the … [Read More]
This week, I’ve decided to compile a list of the top-ten future potential stars in NASCAR. The basis for this list isn’t based purely on driving skill, but also on other aspects that can contribute to their future success such as their organization, or even gender.
