jason leffler dies in crash

I don't usually post on here anymore but I have to add some info to this subject. It is very, very expensive for race car drivers to get life insurance and then it's usually only through Lloyd's of London. Even though Jason had raced in NASCAR, he was not one of the high profile drivers. The race in NJ paid $7,000 to win. He was racing wherever he could for the joy of racing. An article published yesterday said that he provided for Charlie Dean in other ways for the little boy's future.  (Jun 18, 2013 | post #14)

Indy 500

I agree with Tony...it was a great race! He texted the CEO after the race that it was the best Indy 500 he had seen. I had forgotten what it was like to have lapped cars mixed in with the leaders on the restarts...lol The tributes to Dan were tear-jerkers!!  (May 28, 2012 | post #3)

This race fan is 'bummed'

I heard you on Sirius, Debi. And I also heard "Bags" ask you over and over why you didn't get ticket insurance when you bought your tickets. I always plan to stay over through Monday when I go to a race for this very reason...you can't control Mother Nature. If, for some reason, I couldn't stay over on Monday, I would certainly buy that insurance which only costs a few dollars.  (Mar 2, 2012 | post #38)

Tony will be in the Daytona Nationwide Race

He's only driving for RCR because they took over KHI's cars! Looks like that's the only way he can drive Nationwide until he develops his own NNS team(s). He will make it 5 in a row!!!  (Jan 25, 2012 | post #4)

Sports Illustraded Nascar 2012

Thanks for the info, ruttro! I really miss the ODR calendar too. I printed a monthly calendar and attached it to last year's calendar so I can enjoy those great pics again!!  (Jan 22, 2012 | post #5)

Stewart captures Fort Wayne auto race

Forgot to mention he won again on Sat. night at The Rumble. Took the lead on lap 18 and never looked back...lol Now, how could I have forgotten that...hehe  (Jan 1, 2012 | post #9)

Stewart captures Fort Wayne auto race

I have seen him race at Macon Speedway, which he is part-owner of near here. He always spends tons of time signing autographs, etc. And he doesn't always win...lol This last summer he brought Trevor Bayne with him and taught him how to race on dirt for the first time. Funny thing was...Trevor ended up during better than Tony! My personal opinion...that was how Tony planned it...lol I would highly recommend going to a dirt track to watch Tony race. It's entirely different from NASCAR racing!!  (Jan 1, 2012 | post #8)

Stewart captures Fort Wayne auto race

The Smoke winning streak continues!! Hope this lasts through the Chili Bowl and the Daytona 500! And he did it at Fort Wayne with a 20 year old car...haha  (Dec 31, 2011 | post #1)

Nascar Illustrated

I am bummed out too about OD not doing the calendar for 2012. Looked all over the ODR site for it to no avail. There were several great pics of Tony on the 2011 one!! Thinking I will complain to ODR about not doing one again. Going out to get my copy of NASCAR Illustrated today and my very own "Tiny Tony" that's in it...lol  (Dec 31, 2011 | post #6)

vegas championship celebration

I had told a friend of mine a few days ago that I thought he would take her to the Banquet...very sweet of him just like when he had her on pit road with him at one of the last races!  (Dec 2, 2011 | post #5)

darian fired????

Earlier in the year, Eury Jr said that he would like to be on the pit box for Danica in the Cup races as an observer but he had not been approached about being her Cup CC. In all his interviews since Sunday, Tony has evaded the question about Darian's future. Seems clear to me that Darian is not remaining at SHR, although I would like to see him stay there in some capacity. In fact, he has talked to other teams since he was told he is leaving. And, as far as rumors go, I can't think of one NASCAR rumor this year that didn't come true! So, Steve Addington will be Tony's new CC and I think that will be a good thing.  (Nov 23, 2011 | post #37)

Well ladies we need banquet dresses

Apparently, Debi you haven't seen Reba do a hosting gig! She is an excellent host, no lame jokes like the guys in recent years. She is very funny, IMO!! Great choice by NASCAR, for a change. She also has insight into the racing world, since her son races!!  (Nov 22, 2011 | post #5)

Just saw that MM is running 25 races so that plus Mikey's 4 makes 29. Guess it's all in your interpretation of part-time!  (Nov 5, 2011 | post #14)

Mikey's only running Daytona and Dega so that's only 4 more races, still not full-time.  (Nov 5, 2011 | post #13)

It's not entirely Mark's fault. My understanding is that Aaron's wanted to go part-time which coincides with Mark's desire for 2012. IMO, Reuti didn't want to go part-time so, once again, sponsors rule!  (Nov 4, 2011 | post #5)
