Race number eight in the ten-race Chase for the Sprint Cup finds NASCAR's top touring division at Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth, Texas for the AAA Texas 500, November 4th through 7th. The Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series are also on the schedule.
Allmendinger made improvements in 2008 but it was more of the same finishing 36th in the points and he only scored two top tens. Allmendinger had by far his best finish in the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup season, taking 24th. Allmendinger also showed he can still wheel it around a road course, scoring a seventh place, in 2009 at Infineon Raceway, near his hometown of Los Gatos.
Although Daytona was Allmendinger's only top five in 2009, he would have three more top tens, Martinsville ninth, Dover seventh, and Infineon seventh. For the last three races Allmendinger's team switched to a Yates Racing prepared Ford, under the Richard Petty Motorsports banner. Allmendinger felt comfortable immediately switching from the Dodge and showed his fellow teammates he could compete at the highest level in racing comms.
Lets begin with intimacy. Is that word really being used in NASCAR racing blog? When we pulled into the speedway at Talladega I was amazed at how far away we had to park. I bet we parked close to two miles away from the track. Now don't get me wrong, the officials at Talladega should be complimented for the organization of their taxi services (tractors that pull trailors with comfortable seating). We parked and we walked probably 250 feet and got onto one of the trailors (sorry I do not have a better word for it) and we were at the speedway in a matter of minutes. Each time at Atlanta we have parked within a quarter of a mile to a half a mile away. It should also be noted that we arrived at each speedway approximately three hours before the race.
The majority of teenage boys are into some sort of sport. Whether it is basketball, football, baseball, or NASCAR racing, he most likely has a favorite team or sports hero. Buy him a jersey from his team. Even better, find a jersey with the number of his favorite player.
Children's bean bags are also used for a more fitting setup when having story times with kids. These bean bags are more comfortable compared to hard wooden stools.
In NASCAR the windshields are made out of a substance called Lexan. Lexan is the same material used to make bulletproof glass and it does not shatter and is strong enough to resist large objects.
