Who Is 3WideAlley Member 55CrownVic?

May 20th, 2009

Hey!  I thought I’d contribute my bio for Lefty to use if he wants to.

I’m 42 yrs old and a NASCAR fan since I was about 5 yrs old.  That was when I attended my first race at Atlanta- the Atlanta 500 in 1972.  AJ Foyt won the race driving the Wood Bros #21 car.  We went to alot of races at Atlanta and Talladega thru the late 1980s.  I saw Dale Earnhardt and Bill Elliott win a bunch on those tracks.  I was a fan of Bobby Allison growing up and I became a Davey Allison fan when I saw him race at Talladega in 1986 in Neil Bonnett’s car.  I really loved Davey and was crushed when he died of head injuries from a helicopter crash in 1993.  I was also a fan of Dale Sr- he was definitely the best driver the sport ever had or ever will have.  I really like Matt Kenseth now and I’ve followed his career since he came to Winston Cup in 2000.  He’s a class guy and a cool hand driver- one of the best.  I’ve always been a Ford fan, but that hasn’t kept me from cheering for drivers who drive other makes- especially Dale Sr, Tim Richmond, Bobby Allison and Neil Bonnett.  I’m married since 1996 and the Dad of two children, girl and boy, who I love more than anything!  I’m also a small town attorney in western NC- our town’s a lot like Mayberry!  I can see Andy Griffith walking into our office as if it were 40 yrs ago.  I really enjoy chatting with everyone on 3wide and I’m very thankful to ‘ol Lefty for putting the site together for all of us.

No Junior in New York

Failed to live up to expectations after move to Hendrick

So it’s Champions Week in the Big Apple.

It’s time to rain down more confetti on the head of Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, who became the first driver (and only second ever) in 30 years to win three consecutive championships in 2008. It’s maximum exposure time for other drivers and their sponsors as well.

But something will be missing in New York this week — or at least during this Friday night’s gala wrap-up festivities in the Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

The most popular driver in NASCAR will be sitting this one out. Again.

Sunday November 30th Notes

November 30th, 2008

 

Matt Krueger, 19, was recovering from his first colon cancer surgery on the day he confessed his dream to a hospital nurse.

He wanted to get his 1999 Camaro Z28 out onto one of NASCAR’s big tracks, to see if it would actually go the 155 mph promised on the speedometer.

What Krueger didn’t realize, was that his nurse knew somebody at a tire store, who knew somebody at the Carquest Corp., who knew somebody at Lowe’s Motor Speedway, who could make his dream come true.

And so it did. More
