Now that's my kind of woman.. lol..

Gas there actually beginnings were in Livonia but yes they have plants all over now.. Jack starting in like Trans Am racing and tinkering with Ford Mustangs, etc. and it all blew up from there.. Mark Martin, Roush's first cup driver, is by far the best overall driver in Nascar of all time.. No he doesn't have the # 3s 7 championships, no he will never be called the intimadator, no maybe he isn't the "coolest" guy out there, people make fun of him because he is older and has Viagra for a sponsor, etc. But they can all blow me after I run 6 miles with three pair of black sweatpants on in the desert sun.. He is not only my favorite driver but he is my mentor in how to live life.. The guy is outstanding.. You just have to see a few interviews with him to understand what I am talking about.. Sure alot of other drivers talk a big game like golden boy Rusty Wallace or Jeff Gordon or alot of the other punks - they make love to the camera and then go spit on the fans and their team.. Martin is consistent through and through - on and off camera - I have talked to numerous people that can back up that he is a geniuelly (sp.) good guy off camera as well.. I am sorry to see him retire this year.. He is the true king and true class of Nascar.. I would love to see him bring home the 3rd championship in a row for Roush this year.. He deserves it more than anybody out there..

So the weather looks great for tommorow in Brooklyn - 79 and plenty of sunshine.. I am getting pumped just thinking about it.. All you non left-turning fans you have no idea what you are missing..

Pics from the Cup Race

If you don't think MIS is Roush country then please refer to the following pictures:

1. A message to Jeff and Jimmie.. lol
2. Oh what's that? 5 of the top 6 at lap 111 are ALL the Roush cars
3. 6, 97, 17 - great lineup there.. Mid-way during the race and they dominated just like they did AFD!
4. He said he'd rather push a Dodge than drive a Ford and he is his chance.. lol.. Common sight at Nascar tracks everywhere - a fugged up Dodge
5. In the end they passed out crying towels to Hendricks and gave the Batman Begins 400 trophy to its rightfully owner - Roush.. Note 4 out of the top 5 including the winner are Roush cars.. The 5th Roush car was 12th - Kurt Busch - who was running good all day and slipped back in the last 20 laps for some reason.. The best Hendrick finish was 9 - Kyle Busch the rookie.. Welcome to Roush Country mfrs.. Come back in August to get smoked again..

It was good to see them dominate like that at their home track. I'm with you on Martin....he's one of the good ole boys and I would love to see him win a championship this year.

Mark Martin was on that NASCAR 360 show the other night, I caught a little bit of it. Class act for sure. This is his last season too, right?

Yep...this is it for him and he doesn't have a championship yet. Would love to see him go out on top.

I didn't mean in racing, just overall in my opinion. I had an Escort (1st car, bought with little money) and then a Mustang. Bought the mustang for $3500 and within the first six months, I sank over $4000 into it fixing it and that was after THREE different mechanics checked it out. However, if I kept it, I was going to throw this 600+hp streetlegal engine in it until the dealer said the engine alone cost like $4500 and it would be like $5-6K to install it.
