Nascar took to the track last night… OR rather, they were supposed to. The rain had other ideas…
So, today, there will be racing! There will be 17 engines fired up and roaring around the track in Daytona at 11am! Next week is full of racing, too, starting on Thursday with the Duels at Daytona, followed by the Camping World Truck race on Friday night, the Xfinity race on Saturday afternoon, and the Daytona 500 on Sunday.
They’ve kinda change things up for this year, in terms of the races. Instead of one long race, they’ve decided to cut the races down into bite sized pieces. They call them stages. I call them shootouts.
But they’re heat races…
A little longer.
Personally, I don’t think it’s going to work at every track. I think the super speedways, like Daytona and Talladega are going to have problems with this format. It takes 10 laps just to get up to speed! My gut feeling is that by mid-season, they’ll have to tweak the format some.
They’re trying to make it more enjoyable and exciting. I guess we’ll see.
They’ve also messed with the points system again so each of these ‘stage races’ will count. None of them are just ride around races. There are points in every part.
How many wrecks are we going to have?
This should be nothing if not interesting. And I could be wrong. Change isn’t bad and sometimes the whole system needs to be rethought and revamped. It’s going to be a long season and it can’t start until the green flag drops so…
I am so addicted to this song. I listen to it on repeat ALL THE TIME!
Reminds me of some old 70’s rock… I can’t say why. But I’m in love with the sound, the lyrics, her voice in it, the melody, the harmony… I’m in love with the feel of it. That good old rock feeling… That’s how music should be. It should give us all the feels… Every last damn one of them…
I know it’s been a few weeks since I posted this and well, that was rather on purpose. I’ve been working through revisions on an older story and kind of lost my way. I wanted it to be better than it once was and while I thought I was doing the right things to make it better, I lost confidence in it, in me.
But, I finished the revisions and I need to figure out what to do with it. In the meantime, I have Black and White, Book 4 to finish and that’s what I’m working on this weekend. I’ve written the end and now I need to go back and write the middle. Yeah, I know… Just go with it.
So, I’m challenging myself and anyone who may read this to a 10K Weekend. I am also working on revisions of this challenge. I think I’m going to offer up a 5K Weekend For Writers, too. Not that I expect anyone to pay any more attention to that one than they do this one, but who knows. Maybe.
