New Hampshire “News” and Notes

—We’re looking at one of the shortest, quickest Cup races of the year on Sunday, with only 301 laps (and about as many miles) to battle for the win.  Unless it rains.  Again.

—I h pe tha NBC N doe n’t have t e same a dio prob ems t ey had d ring the I dyc r ra e.

—While I’m always glad to see a smaller team pick up ANY sponsor, I wish TBR hadn’t signed up FW1 Wash & Wax.  Now they’ll have “marketing associates” bugging people to try out their products during pit stops.

—And finally, band Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr has changed its name to JR JR.  This won’t affect my cover band, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr Jr.
