I will keep up with the young drivers more ..

    READ about a javelina in the news sorta same deal as babba . FROM 1986..babba was a family pet the state took away from buddy and patsy thorne .babba was very friendly ate ice cream cake and mainly people food .I knew the thornes well and babba the pig .my dad younger brother and sister lived fence to fence with the thornes and babba … my dad was a wielder and always had pipe right against the fence , one day we needed some pipe for Robert driggers race car I took him with me, he did not know babba was next door no clue ,so I thought I would have a little fun I positioned Robert facing away from the fence as he looked for what was needed .babba walked up against the fence and if he did not know you he would take his natural alert stance hair standing up tusk showing and then snorting Robert heard that strange sound and turned face to face with babba he screamed so loud and jumped so high I thought he had a heart attack .I have tears from laughing as I type this .he had to make a fast run to clear his pants wasn't good .but funny as hell .WHAT WASNT FUNNY the game warden was called after 10 years of babba living there ..and many of you should remember it became a popular news item all over the world .. I moved to leon valley in sa just as that was going on and got a shock walking into circle k .and finding every one knew of this ..I handed out where is babba stickers a few days later and later on I am mad too babba stickers ...the thornes never gave up looking for babba and when I drive by the house I think of those two fine people never getting the chance to see him again I know buddy died I dont know about patsy ..I do know many tears for years pasty cried over this .. you know I missed babba too.

    my years long best friend who passed last year said to us in the hospital . man I was somewhere else ..his wife told him you passed away twice ….. the moment my mom passed away hugging me the last time I happen to look over at her clock in front of me .. 11,11 .. many poeple know about that time .. I didnt at the time .. but it seems like just about every day or night I just happen to look at the time and its 11,11 …even when I am around poeple I say high mom thanks for checking on me ……… its great that we didnt lose another racer .

    I DONT WATCH THIS race to see the wrecks .. but I sure hope those who love this kind of racing and wrecking wakes up and takes notice there is a live person inside that bucket of bolts .. glad he will make it . its easy to forget a human is driving that car .even a low speed wreck at our local tracks can hurt you but to admit to and want to see carnage isnt sportsman . a more destructive nature ..I want to see wrecks but dont want no one hurt . sorry cant have it both ways .you can bet many drivers wont tell you but they hurt during the following days or weeks after even a local crash .. BEEN THERE . . THIS WRECK I could hear my wife scream out behind her closed door with the dogs and I bet she heard me .. a lot of omg hope he isnt hurt .I could cared less about who won or how many finished ..

    LOOKED TO ME RICKY HIT 24 TO HARD AND TURNED HIM . .that was what Byron said .. so who knows but I am in line with Byron .. and yes nick I watched the race and I know Toyota will have something to say .. but knowing Toyota he loved the wrecks and hope ryan is ok .. I dont like wrecks like that you just never know as an old driver what the out come will be .. that was why after I wrecked one driver I never went out to wreck anyone else ..
  11. daytona

    I agree .they turned his car over .. I hope he was talking to them during that time .. but I did not look good at all ..

    NICK with trump there put the icing on the cake even if Obama would have been treated the same .. It was not so political to me .. what it did show was America is still the greatest country and politics aside what party you conform too . didnt show up .. everyone was one ..that can still happen in this country and if anything nascar helped showing America we can all still be free and get along .

    here we go again . the stands dont matter .. I PASS BY any eatery that has no cars when its lunch time or supper time .. when people dont fill the stands advertisers lose money the tracks lose money nascar or not . the feel of a live race will keep poeple talking than seeing on tv . . when the stands are full like that . the economy is doing great and nascar is doing a better job .

    nascar helped kill the Saturday night short tracks ..now they want to help glad to see they woke up ..nascar future is Saturday night local tracks ..

    KEEP THINKING THAT I dont think nick would even agree with that .. some of cars he worked with didnt have the money you think it takes to win .. we darn near pulled off a championship in 20 17 . with a junk car .. I won many races in my racing days by out smarting and out running money cars cuz I sure as heck didnt have money ….I even beat most of them with their hand me downs .junk stuff .I just had to work harder .. so dont cheapen low budget teams with that attitude …… . now does money help .lol I wont turn it down .but all the money in the world would not make you a winner . I takes a lot more than that . buy a race team with unlimited budget with out the talent and see just were you go .. I know nick may agree I think the fastest race winner year after year was rick rapp .. poor boy but kicker on the track ..I learned from him it can be done .

    BUDMAN I wont question where she came from of how she got wealthy so much lol.. I am not saying Danica wasn't good behind the wheel ..nascar brought her in to bring the everyday lady into racing get them interested .. and it worked to a point .but what it did do is give your old worn out eyes some eye candy .it helped nascar more in that sense with the men .. , but in all reality she could not really handle a stock car .that takes years to learn .she could not tell the team just what the car was doing where she could be helped …….nascar did get what they wanted . Danica got rich ....but to a racing fan like me where talent behind the wheel means more to me than a perfect body .nice combed hair and clean face .and great on tv she didnt impress me ...and neither do the male racers .. talent behind the wheel .. that makes a racer . looks is one small reason nascar lost a little luster …looks never won a race ..the talent inside did .
  24. Ford and Hailie Deegan

    you can bet he was looking in the mirror wondering where did she come from she is a rookie ..she isnt Danica for you bud she makes Danica look like a rookie ..Danica was just a gimmick .she little lady is for real .
