Insider NASCAR Blogs(Filed under: Speculating)
So where are all the NASCAR blogs? I speculated a while ago that it'd be cool to see a blog from a shoestring team like Derrick Cope's. Or what about Morgan Shepherd's Racing with Jesus team? They seem eager just to get publicity and they're not exactly getting any TV coverage.
It doesn't have to be the driver blogging. How about a crew member? How about a truck driver? How about an insider somewhere? There has to be an enterprising person out there who realizes the attention a blog could draw. It seems like a no-brainer, especially for the teams at the bottom, those struggling to get attention and languishing outside the top 35.
Getting attention seems to be the only way some of these teams are still out there. Like Kyle Petty. It's not like he's going to win a race. But he still manages to get the sponsors and keep on doing what he's doing. It's not because he's successful on the track. It's because he can get the sponsors the attention they pay for. I think a blog could deliver the same thing.
Don't give me a journalist blogging. Don't give me another fan blogging (like myself). Give me a voice in the garage. Someone biased. Someone with something on the line. Someone who know's what's going on under the hood. Someone the networks will likely never cover. That's a blog I'd read.

I'm new here! This is my first time posting. I'm a huge Dale Earnhardt fan, and now I keep up with Dale Earnhardt Jr.
I want to let you know about a suit that's up for auction on eBay. It's a race-worn suit of Dale Earnhardt, and it's from 1998 when he won the Daytona 500. It also has the 50th Anniversary logo for NASCAR. This suit is so rare and it's awesome. Check it out.
It's item #300037708613 on eBay.
