Musically Declined: Stock Car Racing’s Entertainers of the Year, I’m Doing the Best with What I’ve Got/T-Bone


Stock Car Racing and Country Music—two pillars of culture in the Southern United States.  And the two have mingled throughout the years.  So put on your racing shoes, make sure they match your cowboy hat, and settle in for a look back at some of Nascar’s biggest stars turned Nashville wannabes!


The Songs: I’m Doing the Best with What I’ve Got by David Gillon & T-Bone by Ross/Hanna


The Star: Dave Marcis & Richard Childress


The Clip: 



The Review: Hey Dave—nice attempt at singing!  You’ve always been good at doing more with less.  Just one word of advice—enunciate on “Chevy” or it’ll sound like a descriptor of most of your cars in the late-90’s.  Oh, and what’s with “I eat dill pickles”?  Hey Richard—nice voice!  Just one word of advice—I’m not a racer, but wouldn’t “the greatest fear of a racer’s life” be a fiery wreck, not just a “T-Bone”?  Oh, and wouldn’t YOUR greatest fear be Ricky Rudd strangling you?


The Verdict: Surprisingly good songs here—and that’s not the “Tangential Earnhardt Factor” talking.

May 22nd, 2024: Chase Elliott Changes First Name Back to Clyde



In response to his slow start to the 2024 Nascar Cup season, Chase Elliott has informed the media that as of this weekend’s Coke Molecular 600, he would like to be referred to by his given name, Clyde Elliott.

“Its time for a change”, Elliott told the assembled media at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  “All my life I’ve been going by another name that’s not really my own.  Well, that changes today—call me Clyde.”

Since narrowly missing out of the 2023 Nascar Cup Championship to teammate Kyle Larson, Elliott has had a dreadful start to the year.  While sponsors Napa and HootersBlockchain have pledged their support, Elliott has taken responsibility for a turnaround on himself.

“With my new—or should I say, REAL—name, there’s no more excuses”, Elliott said.  “As far as I’m concerned, the 2024 season starts now for Clyde Elliott and everyone on this team—the buck stops here, and the winning starts now.”

Hendrick Motorsports CEO Jeff Gordon pledged his support to Elliott as the season goes forward.

“Everyone at HMS is behind Clyde 100%”, Gordon said.  “The only downside is that Geoff(rey) Bodine is taking credit for doing this first.”
