Too bad the race wasn’t today - NASCAR would have had to break out the snow tires.

MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Max Siegel was abducted at 5 with his little sister by a father who convinced the two their mother was dead. He didn’t find out otherwise until he was reunited with his mother at 12 after his father died of cancer.
Siegel relayed that story to Dale Earnhardt Jr. when he took over the day-to-day operations of Dale Earnhardt Inc. in early February.

Earnhardt related to Siegel’s rough upbringing.

At 6, a fire destroyed his mother’s house. Unable to take care of Earnhardt and his sister, Kelley, she sent them to live with their dad, who had remarried. Dale Sr. was absent most of the time tending to his racing career. His wife, Teresa, according to Dale Jr., remained emotionally distant toward the children thrust onto her household.

I just heard on Nascar Now that Mikey was in an accident and left the scene. Apparently the car rolled, he has cuts on his face and hands.......apparently was speeding and fell asleep. I will see if I can find something else.

Here from Jayski........

Michael Waltrip Charged After Vehicle Accident Saturday: #55-Michael Waltrip is charged with reckless driving and failure to report an accident after a crash on Molly’s Backbone Road in Catawba County. The Highway Patrol says Waltrip was driving about 70 miles per hour in the 55 mile-per-hour zone when he went off the right side of the road in a curve around 1:50 a.m. Saturday. His car then traveled back across the pavement and off the left side of the roadway, sliding sideways and striking a utility pole as it overturned. The car then rolled over and came to a rest on its side. Troopers said a witness saw Waltrip crawl out of the vehicle and leave the scene. When a trooper went to his home around 2:30 a.m. no one was there, but when he went back at 8 p.m. he found Waltrip, who admitted he’d fallen asleep at the wheel. Waltrip, with scratches on his face and some deep cuts on his finger, spoke with Eyewitness News about the crash. He said he was on his way home to Sherill’s Ford from Charlotte. “I was almost home. I relaxed a little bit and ran off the road,” he explained. “I woke up with gravel hitting the car and I tried to correct but it was too late. The seasoned driver says he instinctively got out of his car, and then decided to walk home because he often runs the route and was only a mile away. Waltrip will be in court in Newton on May 14.(WSOCTV.com)(4-10-2007)

He could use one anyway. :) Who’s available?

The part I found odd was they talked to Ty Norris who said there were rumors going around about alcohol and that NONE was found on him. Well gee about how many hours later did they find him??...........sounds like Lil Brian’s stunt. This is allegedly and IMO of course.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Dale Earnhardt Jr. and sister Kelley Earnhardt Elledge showed off their impressive, new JR Motorsports race shop Tuesday afternoon.
But questions remain: Will Earnhardt Jr. also own another shop nearby - Dale Earnhardt Inc. - and when will that decision be made?"
Part of that is the fact that the [DEI] business is not where it could be over the last several years. It's going to take something to get that back, and we're in a position of time. We want Dale to drive 10 or 12 more years. We've got to get on the race track and win and get competitive and win championships. We have to have a situation that provides that for him."

Penske Racing crew chief Roy McCauley is taking some time off from traveling with the team to spend more time with his wife, Amy, who is battling cancer. Troy Raker takes over the role with driver Kurt Busch on an interim basis.

"Amy has been winning her fight with leukemia since it was first diagnosed back in February," McCauley said in a news release. "But, there have been recent complications stemming from her long-term treatment and I feel as though I need to spend more time by her side.

John Force Racing plans to return to action at this weekend’s eighth annual SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals, team patriarch and 14-time NHRA world champion John Force announced during a nationwide press conference Tuesday. The team sat out the last national event in Houston following the March 23 death of team driver Eric Medlen, who died as a result of closed head injuries suffered during a test session at Gainesville Raceway in Florida. Experts have determined that Medlen’s death occurred due to a violent side-to-side shaking of his head within the cockpit roll cage.

All four race teams will go to Vegas, but only three might compete. In an unprecedented move, NHRA is allowing JFR to test at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, site of this weekend’s race, to see if John Force Racing’s reconfigured race cars are drivable. Under the watchful eye of NHRA officials, no tuning data will be gathered during the test, where Force will intentionally drive his car into tire shake to see if newly installed padding around the driver’s head will help. Force is not fully committed to racing any of his cars, including the Super Comp dragsters of daughters Brittany and Courtney, pending the results of the test session.

DJ to TV?

Dale Jarrett to Make Debut as ESPN NASCAR Analyst at Texas: Dale Jarrett will begin the transition to what may be the next phase of his career this weekend when he joins ESPN2 as booth analyst for live coverage of Saturday’s Busch race at Texas. Jarrett will appear on 10 of this season’s Busch telecasts while continuing to race fulltime in the Nextel Cup Series. Jarrett has indicated that 2008 will be his last year of driving and has hinted that a more expanded television presence may be in his future. “Over the last few years, TV was something that I have taken more interest in and looked more at because I want to stay involved in the sport,” he said. “This is the perfect chance that ESPN is offering me to see if it’s something that I really want to do and want to look at after 2008 to do maybe closer to full time. And to find out if it’s something I can do and if ESPN would be interested in having me.”(ESPN PR)(4-9-2007)
