Boogity, Boogity, Boogity!

By Wyatt Earp | September 26, 2009

By the time you read this, I’ll already be here:

Today, my friend Bill and I are taking Kyle and Erik to their very first live NASCAR race at Dover International Speedway. We’ll be seeing the Nationwide Series, which is the minor leagues of NASCAR – think Camden Riversharks, NFL Europe, or the Cleveland Indians. Heh. That being said, a lot of the Sprint Cup drivers will be participating in the race, including Kyle’s favorite driver, Kyle Busch, and one of Erik’s favorite drivers, Denny Hamlin.

The good thing about a Nationwide race is that it is not the all-day marathon that a Sprint Cup race is. The race is only 200 laps, half the distance of the big guys, and we can leave a lot later to get there in plenty of time. For the spring Dover Race, Randal and I left at 5am and were home by 10pm. Today, we left at 8am, and should be home by the kids’ bedtime – 8pm.

Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and the kids will enjoy the day. I’ll be sure to take plenty of photos. Let’s go racin’, boys!

    In other news, there’s 9 minutes to go in the 4th, and IU is actually ahead of Michigan. A winning football team? Wow. Whatta concept.

    With any luck, Kyle Busch will hit the wall and total his car on the 1st lap…

    And maybe do a repeat in the Cup Race tomorrow too… :P

    Texas Fred and I share the same exact sentiments about Kyle Busch.

    I do not follow NASCAR that closely, but almost everyone I know that does hates Kyle Busch. Why is that? I thought Tony Stewart was the whining little weasel that needs to be bitch slapped.

    Compared to Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart is HE-MAN, Master of the Universe..

    If you look in the dictionary for the word dorky-assed cry baby, there’s a picture of Kyle Busch…

    I need a win from the old man tomorrow so I can move up in The League Too Tough to Tame.

    RT – It was a fantastic day, and the boys really loved it. Kyle loved it more when Kyle Busch was dominating the first half of the race, but . . .

    Prof – Michigan 36, Indiana 33. Tough luck, pal. Heh.

    TexasFred – I told Kyle to expect a lot of boos, but apparently we sat in the Kyle Busch section. He got a lot of applause there.

    Randal – You know he’s not my favorite guy, either, but I had to play diplomat today. Although Erik and I both cheered on Denny Hamlin.

    Becky – It was. I’ll post about it soon.

    Ingineer66 – I hate no one more than Tony Stewart. He’s still pretty hated, but Kyle is catching him. They have the same obnoxious style.

    TexasFred – As long as tyou don’t rip Gordon here, we’re good.

    Jim – I just need a decent finish from a few guys. Haven’t had a strong week for a while.

    K – We walked past on Saturday, but I didn’t see ya. Don’t have tickets to Sunday’s race. Too much for the kids.
