Nascar!!!!!!!!

Ky Bush and Ku Bush and Joey, Danny, Jimmie, and Ryan! Whosyerdriver?

Nor more of that silly-ass iRacing shit!

It's Sunday, NASCAR is on, the world is back to normal, all is right with things.

Darius Rucker with a nice rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner, and we're ready to light 'em up!

Three wide at 180 into turn 1 at Darlington; BOOYAH!

Buuuuuusch....

I lost interest in that spec car series years ago. Barely know what you are talking about!!

I find Moto GP much more interesting.

Eh, that's a bunch of effete wee men riding temperamental four-cylinder spec series bikes.

Next, you'll be telling me that you don't like Pro Wrestling, that it's not real or something.

I have three words for you on that idea. John Cena.

NASCAR's good and the Darlington Speedway is quite the showcase. I laid in some Miller High Life and went to Church's Chicken and picked up a "Sharing Size" box of fried okree (okra) for the race: wanted to be "all Southern and all."

Good on ya, @planalp.

Harvick wins, so it is a Buschhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh first race back.

He did a lame burnout. If he jumps out of the car and faces the stands and pumps his fist I'm going to be disappointed. Waiting....

Good, he went straight to the interviewer with a mike on a 10 foot pole. He properly said they miss the fans.

Wednesday! 500!

I'll watch Top Fuel. I enjoy watching them defy the laws of physics.

There's no suspense in Funny Car. Who do you suppose will win FC this year, eh?

After an hour and a half of track drying, Jewel is trying to sing the National Anthem at the start of Darlington's second race this week. One bar in and I knew it was going to be bad. She sounds like a sick bird singing at 3/4 speed.

Let's get the engines started...
