My father was born in Corbin,Kentucky so I have a little "briar hopper" in me! Obviously my grandma and grandpa are also from Kentucky. Grandma and grandpa and my father moved to Ohio so as to avoid working those coal mines.
Living in Ohio most of my life. I have access to so many racing venues including Tony's dirt track up in Rossburg,Ohio! The NASCAR tour oddly travels to many neighboring states.
Michigan,Indiana,Pennsylvania,Kentucky,New York to name a few. Means nothing, just threw that in!
Kentucky Speedway's first race last year was a disaster for the fans unfortunately. But, all those problems have been addressed.
Team #39's 2011 numbers there:START:18TH.....FINISHED:4TH. So, there's hope for this "ship sinking" race team at Kentucky as long as they don't mess up?
NASCAR practices will be Friday June 29TH at both 11:30AM(ET) and 1:30PM(ET) followed by qualifying at 5:00PM(ET). RACE is Saturday night 7:00PM(ET) on TNT.
Ryan Newman's career stats look like the following:16 wins/83 top 5's/155 top 10's.
Newman's 2012 stats look like this:1 win/2 top 5's/3 top 10's. No kidding folks, Team #39 needs to pick it up a lot or they may be on the "outside looking in" at this years Chase!
Paint Scheme will be the Tornado's!
Your feeling about Kentucky if any?
