I'm nowhere near any of these events. But I'd be glad to break out that schedule by state if you think a lot of people will be interested.

I honestly don't know a single NASCAR far who is voting for Kerry. If they get energized to vote then look out. There are a lot of them in these swing states.

I'm trying to figure out how I can goto this.

I'm about 20-25 minutes away from there where I work in Willliamsport.

I have an hour lunch.. It'll be cutting it tight getting there, and I couldn't stay long...

Actually, the Montoursville visit at 1:15 would work better.

Sure most NASCAR fans support him. This is important to make sure they actually make it to the polls.

Jeff Gordon & Rick Hendrick not listed as supporting Bush. Interesting. Makes you wonder if they're Kerry supporters. If they were, it would be a bad move to come out and say it. The boos for Jeff Gordon are already pretty loud. Imagine what it would be like if he endorsed Kerry!

I haven't seen a Kerry/Edwards sticker on Flash's bumper so don't jump to conclusions like some folks did with Junior earlier in the year when he made a comment that got twisted out of shape.., besides if he did come out for Kerry, that would sink both of them. ;-)

Jeff Gordon is a Republican, but he seems to choose to keep his cards a little closer to his chest. Maybe having a house in New York has something to do with it. I Watched his 10 questions segment on Fox earlier this season, he answered Republican.

BTW that house in NYC comes in handy at the end of the season, it will really come in handy at the end of this season!

I am suprised that flash has not thrown his name in the hat. That makes no sense to be the lone outsider especially from a financial side. He must really hate the President. Even Jr. says he is for Bush and I have a feeling he is wishing to head to hollyweird sooner or later. He also took his pit crew to see moores false documentary. That action makes me think of a wolf in sheeps clothing.

I really like Brendon Gaughn. He is a good young man. He is very polite and he even played point guard for Georgetown. I dont know for sure but I bet he is the most educated driver. I am glad to see his name mentioned

Earnhardt Jr. loses appeal on 25-point penalty

October 18, 2004

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. lost his appeal of a 25-point penalty and $10,000 fine for using a vulgarity during a postrace TV interview.

Instead of leading the Nextel Cup standings Monday by a point with five races to go, Earnhardt trails Kurt Busch by 24 points.

``NASCAR had issued repeated warnings to contestants regarding the use of inappropriate language during live event broadcasts,'' the National Stock Car Racing Commission said Monday in a statement. ``The infraction occurred on-air at the racetrack during the live broadcast of a NASCAR event, not in a casual private conversation or off-site activity.''

NASCAR punished Earnhardt on Oct. 5, two days after he cursed during a live television interview with NBC after winning a race in Talladega.

In its denial of the appeal, a three-person panel called Earnhardt an important ambassador of the sport and a role model.

Hmmmmm. Did Jr step up and fight for the other drivers who were fined and lost points? Or is he only upset now that they are enforcing the rules against him?

NOT TRUE! Martin was told that He would be giving the 'toon the tour at the Daytona 500. He in no way was happy about it.

the reason the job was pawned off on Martin was that He was from Batesville, Ark.
