Nascar Sprint Crown Royal Dan Lowry 400?

Remember when races just had names like Southern 500.

It was really tough.

I just now went into e-mail and the mouse pointer disappeared so there’s still something amiss.

Stars are on tonight, just as soon as Philly disposes of Montreal, minute and a half left.

Stars could dispose of the Sharks tonight.

From the show.......
Morgan said Kevin Harvick got him a car and he might be able to run better if he could just find some sponsorship and get some tires.

Matt said “Well, Tony and I are each going to get you a set of tires and maybe you can run Richmond”.

Morgan started to get choked up and started talking about what good friends they are and how he appreciates their help. He said sometimes he is driving down the road and starts thinking about everything the guys do for him and it brings a tear to his eye.

From Jayski...........

Stewart/Yocum to help Shephard at Richmond: Morgan Shepherd’s Faith Motorsports Dodge will hopefully be making a lot more trips around the Richmond International Raceway this weekend, thanks to the generosity of two of the veteran driver’s modern-day heroes. Two-time Sprint Cup Champion #20-Tony Stewart and broadcaster Matt Yocum will provide tire sponsorship to the #89 team this weekend in an effort to help Shepherd build on last week’s 13th place run at Talladega. Shepherd was a surprise call-in guest to the Tony Stewart Live radio show on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio on Monday evening, and before the conversation between Shepherd and the two hosts was over the duo had come aboard as tire sponsors for Friday night’s Lipton Tea 250 at Richmond. “You say you need some tires for this weekend,” Yocum said during the interview. “How about if Smoke and I each buy you a set of tires.” Stewart and Yocum said they would each set Shepherd up with a set of tires for this weekend’s 250-lap event at the .75-mile track at the Virginia State Fairgrounds. Stewart followed up by saying he would provide as many tires as Shepherd might need this weekend. Stewart went on to talk about how many modern-day fans of NASCAR don’t appreciate the personal dedication that Shepherd and many other racers from his era put into the sport. “I know how much you put into it personally and I can appreciate it,” Stewart said. “We’ll make sure you have plenty of tires for this weekend.”(PR)(4-30-2008)

Have fun...........It should be sold out.

Notes from Jr’s old PR guy now working for KHI.

Headed off to Richmond for Friday’s full day of action. It’s always a track I look forward to, so I figured I’d make a goofy list of my fave tracks to attend and a few reasons why. Your mileage may vary.

1.) Richmond — Nightmare traffic can hamper the experience, but there is absolutely no better racing at any other track on the circuit. Side-by-side action lap-after-lap. A short track that races like a superspeedway. Plus, they race at night, so watch the cars glitter, the pipes belch flames and the brakes glow cherry-red. A great atmosphere - and it’s really about the racing.

I’ve never been to a race at RIR, but I’ve lived in Richmond twice, and once around 1996, I got accidentally caught in Sunday morning raceday traffic on Laburnum Avenue headed toward the Fairgrounds. Oh man, never again. It’s a great facility, but access into the Fairgrounds complex is HORRIBLE. The only upside is that if you come in through Richmond on Laburnum, you get a nice slow drive through some very pretty old neighborhoods. And if that one morning is still any indication, you get a LOT of time to admire the houses...
