On Saturday, we spent the day at Dover International Speedway for the NASCAR Nationwide Series One Main Financial 200.

Kyle Busch: Lead Foot, Pea Brain

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Most of you know that I’m a huge NASCAR fan. That fandom has spread to my two oldest sons. Erik is a Denny Hamlin fan, as am I. Kyle is a Kyle Busch fan. Me? Not so much. You see, Kyle Busch is kind of an arrogant douche. He’s a very talented driver, but he’s [...]
