i laughed

For once i'm seeing headlines in NASCAR and not getting mad, i'm chuckling instead.

Let's start with this one.

Waltrip and Bill Davis and an unknown team get Toyotas. and this is somehow supposed to translate to Toyotas winning races and being competative? are you KIDDING me? look, i like mike, he's a nice guy and total entertainment to watch, but let's be realistic. he didn't start doing anything till he joined DEI. what in god's name do you think he's going to do in a unproven make that has virtually no support?

Then come this one which had me rolling for a good 10 minutes.

IOWA!?!?!? let me get this straight Rusty..... you want people to go see racing..... in Iowa...... in Iowa..... in IIIIIOOOOWWWAAAAA......??? bless Rusty and his hard work but he's gotta be smoking something to be saying this

"This track, I'm really proud of it," said Wallace, who has won 55 Nextel Cup races, the eighth most in NASCAR history. "I've got my name on it and people have put their heart and soul into it and I really want everybody in the world to know about it."

then you might want to start with putting the track somewhere where people will want to go. does he really think people are going to be saying, "screw those Daytona tickets, i'm hitting the Iowa Speedway baby!!!" more like.....

Husband (H): honey, i got great news....
Wife (W): what is it sweetie?
H: i got us NASCAR tickets!!!
W: oh my god that's so awesome!! i love you so much, this is great!! which track?
H: Iowa Speedway
W: Daytona? oh my GOD!!!! wait till i tell my friends they're going to be soooooo jealous....
H: uh dear...
W: that bitch Susan always bragging about her trip to Talladega.... i'll show her, i'm going to wave these tickets in her stupid face and LAUGH..."
H: ...um...sweetie....
W: oh we can go have so much fun at Daytona beach, i can go lay out and get a nice tan. oh my god i have to go bikini shopping....
H: sugar....um....it isn't Daytona....
W: say what?
H: i didn't say Daytona. i said Iowa.
W: WHAT?
H: yeah Iowa Speedway. Rusty Wallace himself designed it.
W: WHAT?
H: it'll be cool. it's located in a nice place called Newton.
W: Iowa.....
H: I mean, this is right out of Field of Dreams. If you build it they will come. Well he built it baby.
W: Iowa.....
H: While we're there we can go check out the old Maytag plants that closed.
W: Iowa.....
H: We can also.... uh.... well.....
W: Iowa.....
H: Well i'm sure we find something else to do. Honey? Where you going?

Mikey can buy his way into anything....but the real test is being a good race car driver and that's just something he doesn't have the knack for.

Whats even more surprizing is how quick Napa and Toyota have bandwagon'd him. Like he's this super conglomerate racing HERO, when in all practicality....what has he even done is racing? He has no substance in his career to even warrant a backing of this magnatude. Terry Labonte..maybe? But Mikey? He won 1 500 fair and square. The 2nd one...was rained out...so he really raced it hard and earned it uh?

He consists of nothing...and by the end of the year...he'll still be nothing....Regardless of huge finacial backing of Napa & Toyota. You can have all the financial backing that one needs to race good...but if you don't have a good driver...what good is it gonna do?

He's a very big nothing with huge endorsements.....he'll never produce again like he did with DEI...Leaving DEI and driving for Bill Davis racing is like Leaving Macy's to buy your prom dress at K-mart. Yeah, BDR won the 500 in 2002? A huge wreckfest BTW taking out almost 1/2 the field and a bunch of GOOD drivers.What have they done lately? Nadda...a whole lotta Nadda!

IOWA??? "If you build it they will come" He must be talking about the cows coming!!!! That is a little rediculous! If he wants to have a track I think he should build one in the south. I mean everyones expanding to the north and west and are starting to close down the good old southern tracks that have hosted years of Nascar racing!! Maybe he should reopen Rockingham.
