2nd Annual Cruisin’ For Paws Event Coverage

The 2nd Annual Cruisin’ For Paws Cruise In to raise money for Rabun County Georgia’s Paw’s For Life, a no kill animal shelter, was a huge success! We raised $3706 dollars for Paws For Life! Several dogs were also adopted! We had just over 80 cars! A big thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, people who donated items for the silent auction, The Eric Leach Band for coming to play at the very last minute, Clayton Police Chief Lindsey Owens for all the help, and most of all, everyone who came out, gave the money, and help support the cause!

TMD “Fired Up Friday” Response: 12-7-2012

My reply to “Fired Up Friday” on the daily Sirius-XM satellite radio show The Morning Drive with Mike Bagley and Pete Pistone. Because of work I don’t have time to call in every week but I will respond on here! Comments to the blog are more than welcome!

FUF #1: “Of the states that do not have a NCWTS, NNS, and NSCS race, which state should get one next?”

Washington state. There have been several rumored tracks but nothing ever seems to come to be. Maybe Evergreen Speedway could make a return to the NCWTS or NNS series in 2014?

FUF #2: “We are in a new era in @NASCAR, when do YOU think this began?”

I don’t think you can pin point any certain date or time when the new era started but it had to be some time between when Dale Sr. died and the introduction of the Chase. With the Chase brought the COT and safety innovations along with a wave of new super stars. It was a changing of the guard so to speak.

FUF #3: “@NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is considering a GIANT procedural change as it pertain to kickoffs. In your opinion, what is the biggest change in our sport in recent years?”

The first thought is the Chase, but I don’t think that is the biggest change. I think the biggest change is a combination of the “C.O.T.” and the soft walls. Look at how many violent or hard wrecks that we have saw since they both came out, wrecks that in the 90’s meant a trip to the hospital for sure or worse. They have no doubt lengthened the careers of many drivers and made the sport much safer. Whether they will admit it or not everyone likes a good wreck now and then but no one wants to see anyone get hurt, so in turn these improvements have made NASCAR more enjoyable to the fans.

#1 ” What is the best event of Champions Week and why?”

By far Nascar After The Lap. Where else do you get to see the driver’s let their hair down so to speak? Well besides in Brad Keselowski’s 2013 Championship celebration…..
The Stewie Awards come in a close second but without Tony being on the air each week on Sirius XM they have lost some of there appeal and credibility. The rest of the Championship week festivities are just like going through the motions, does anyone even watch the awards ceremony?

#2 “What is your favorite new car design for 2013”?

Wow, this is a tough one. Honestly I can’t decide. They are all awesome. The Dodge sticks out in my mind I think because for one its the first one we saw. It has probably the most unique nose piece and that really stands out. I like the nose on the Toyota but it looses me with the flat side, same for the Ford. I really like the side body lines that Chevy and Dodge put into their cars. So since Dodge is gone I guess I would have to pick the Chevy SS.

#3 “Should the Most Popular Driver Award be matched with the results on the track?”

What? No! Why in the heck would you do that?? We have that award already, Brad Keselowski won it this year! It’s the Most Popular Driver Award, it has ZERO to do with performance, heck Danica Patrick won it in Nationwide for goodness sake! Base it of souvenir sales, base it off twitter mentions, base it off whatever you want the result is going to be the same. Are we really that bored two weeks into winter that this is an issue for people to complain about? Give me a break!
