I see the gaping collective yawn regarding paint schemes, so let's stir the pot with a purely hypothetical (emphasis added) question: if there were a book written about Dale Jr's "Budweiser" years, what events would you most like to read about? What behind-the-scenes stories are you most interested in learning? Here's your shot to have your say, so let the suggestions fly in the 'Comments' section.
What I'm Reading These Days:
The Lefsetz Letter: Unless you're really into music or the music business, some of this is a little 'Inside Baseball,' but there's no mistaking his passion for the music. I don't always share his taste in artists, but I love the energy.
Awkward Family Photos: Oh, devilish good fun. Who doesn't have a few of these stashed away in a shoebox somewhere?
Jeff MacGregor: Some might recognize Jeff from his NASCAR book "Sunday Money," but he's now doing a column at ESPN.com on the question of "what are sports for?" A superb literary writer who's scary smart and always set on full power.
Corn Flakes with John Lennon: the new book by Robert Hilburn. Sadly, it's not available for the Kindle.
Autosport.com: All fast things not-NASCAR. (And some NASCAR too, if you must...)
Wired.com: 'cuz it's good to be informed. And wired.
Google FastFlip: New and interesting. For interesting news.
UPDATE: For those who enjoyed the Greg Moore blog entry (see below), here's a lengthy piece about Greg from a Canadian paper. A lot of good memories with Dario Franchitti, Jimmy Vassar, Max Papis and Tony Kanaan. It will be 10 years ago on the last day of October.
There is one here as well (with several nice photos), and I'm sure more to come in the next couple of days.
