BIG NEWS!!! My nephew Mike, the writer of this site, surprised me with an early birthday gift—he’s taking me to the Xfinity Series race at Dover on Saturday! And we won’t just be there in the stands—we got pit passes!!! Hope to have plenty of pictures and stories from the weekend, but I gotta go now—working overtime so I can take off on Saturday!
CUP SERIES Drydene 400: Mystery Picker (1 win) picks Martin Truex Jr. Favorite (4 wins): Chase Elliott—unlike last week THIS pick will park his car in victory lane. Next Favorite (3 wins): Denny Hamlin—didn’t FedEx used to sponsor this race? Dark Horse: Jimmie Johnson—used to own this place, now he’s the rarest of the rare—a Delaware tourist.
XFINITY SERIES Use Your Melon 200 (7 wins): Christopher Bell—using my own melon to make this incredibly dull pick.
