How about an early Dale Earnhardt Sr. car?


This one isn’t exactly a NASCAR race car, but its close enough. A.J. Foyt’s USAC car and the last car he ever drove to a championship.


All you need to go with these two is an Alan Kulwicki number seven to complete your 1992 NASCAR collection!

Kyle Larson In The Daytona Spotlight For All The Wrong Reasons

When you search Kyle Larson’s name on yahoo this morning the top story that comes up is  “Kyle Larson’s Car Flies Into Catch Fence And Injures Fans”. If you look on down you find “Kyle Larson Takes Controversial Win At The Battle At The Beach”. Not exactly the two headlines young Larson had hoped to take away from the 2013 Speedweeks. Number one, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time in the last lap wreck on Saturday. Number two, his bump and run on C.E. Faulk last Monday night was just good old fashioned short track racing, a young kid going hard for his first short track victory, nothing wrong with that! But instead of focusing on what has already been covered, I want to focus on some of the highlights that haven’t been mentioned near as much as they should this week. (In no particular order)

NASCAR Diversity Driver Of The Year

Kyle Larson was awarded the 2012 NASCAR Drive For Diversity Driver Of The Year Award last week.

Qualifies 21st In His 1st NASCAR Nationwide Series Start

Not a bad starting position for his first career Nascar Nationwide Series start. Kyle will be running the entire 2013 season for Turner-Scott Motorsports in the #32 Chevrolet Camaro.

10th, 16th and 1st Place Finishes At The Battle Of The Beach

10th place in the K&N Pro Series race, 16th in the Whelen Modified race, and 1st in the Whelen All American Series race. That’s a 9th place average. Not bad! Not to mention he had only ran five career laps in a Modified before!

2nd Place Finish For Larson In Arca Race

Larson Falls To 13th In Nationwide Series Opener

Not the way Kyle wanted to finish his Nationwide debut, he still comes home 13th in the final standings which should make him 10th in points once you take out the Cup regulars. While I’m sure he wished the end of the race would have played out different, its still a good finish considering all the torn up race cars.

Larson Comes Out Of Speedweeks With 7th Place Finish Average

Not bad right? 7 races, 7 different series’, 3 different race tracks, I’d say all and all it was a pretty impressive speedweeks for Kyle Larson, lets give the kid a little credit!
