Let's keep this thing goin'!

I hate to use this venue for this but SportsChump holds the EVER so slimmest of leads in Ballhyped's Blog of the Year award. Voting for this round ends tomorrow.
I know everyone's busy today and some of you have already voted, but if you could take a brief second out of your day to vote for me, it'd be HUGE!!! Spread the word if you could.
Thanks, all, and Merry Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the garage
Not a car was stirring, not even a Dodge
The tyres were hung by the rafters with care
In hopes that Ace Nicholas would fill them with air.
The Volkswagons were parked all snug in their stalls
With visions of winning Indy dreamed by them all.
And Opel in her mag wheels and I in my slicks
Had just zoomed in from a drag in the sticks.
When out on the track, there arose such a roar
I started my engine and yearned to learn more.
Over to the door I zoomed like a flash,
Narrowly missing a Mercedes and avoiding a crash.
The moon over the top of the newly built track
Seemed to be beckoning old race cars back.
When what to my wandering headlights appeared afar
But a souped-up midget and eight other race cars.
With a little old driver so shifty and quick
I knew in a moment it must be "Leadfoot Nick."
Faster than rockets toward us they roared
Recognising them, my timing just soared.
There was Nitro, and Speedy, and Smokey, and Slick
Even Reckless, and Loser, and Pokey, and Brick.
Down through the chute, narrowly missing the wall
Roar away, roar away, now roar away all.
So on through the straight over asphalt they flew
With a midget full of goodies, and Ace Nicholas too.
And then between pingings, I heard in the back
The throaty sound of the whole wild pack.
As I turned down my lights and squeeled around
In came Ace Nicholas wearing a frown.
His jumpsuit was silver with a permanent crease
But lo there were stains from oil and grease.
A string of parts was hung round his waist
The tools he carried showed he had taste.
His boots were black hightops, his gloves of red leather,
And lo and behold he stepped light as a feather.
His gaze was real straight, his arms quite hairy
A scar on his cheek shown red like a berry.
A big ole cigar was clamped tight in his jaw
He just didn't believe in the "No Smoking Law."
A stubble of growth quite covered his chin
But what a man and what a grin.
He was skinny and thin and really quite nice
Yet somehow I knew he could grip like a vice.
He bellowed and cussed but was quick to do work
He tuned all the cars including the "Merc."
Grabbing his creeper and stowing his tools
Boy Oh Boy! Did he look cool!
He honked to his buddies, to the engine gave gas
And away they all peeled each trying to pass.
And I heard him shout as he set the pace
Merry Christmas you all and have a good race!

Here is their famous blue starfish...this is a little guy but as you can imagine the ones the size of manhole covers are spectacular as is the rest of the snorkeling/diving. Saw octopus, sea snake (deadly poisonous so glad I saw him from the beach not the water) and a billion tropical fish!
Listened to Dega on our drive to LAX - the wrecks sounded brutal but missed Martinsville entirely as for some reason the DVR didnt tape it. Had no internet access there so no way to get my 'fecta picks in!
Back to the harsh reality of work...

SPEED TV will show both the Bathurst 1000 and the Gold Coast 600 races live...not 100% sure if it's starting this year or not but I am excited to be able to watch 'my' Daytona 500 live instead of a week later with the editors cramming six hours worth of race into a two hour time slot *laugh*

An interesting perspective on what's made NASCAR racing so different this year.

Ran across this contest today... A cool million wouldn't be too bad to handle. Wonder how much would be left once the Feds got their share? Might buy a tank of gas... Maybe not...
Anyway... Here's the link to enter: http://sports.sprint.com/speed/
Good Luck! (and if you win you've got to share with all your Lug Nut buddies!)

Not entirely sure where our resident host is...so I'll have to make up an excuse; she's waiting in line for the new 'Harry Potter' movie so it's up to her whether or not this counts :P
If SB decides to post one, that shall take precedence over this...so check here more than usual!
We've got all three NASCAR series in action, with the Nationwides going first on Saturday afternoon, followed by the Trucks that evening and then, I shall guess based on history, the snoozefest that is a Cup race at Loudon.
And, in case one series doesn't take your fancy this week, the Moto GP guys are in Germany. It goes early Sunday morning (for us on the West Coast at any rate) with, I presume, a delayed broadcast by Speed showing it after lunchtime. I'll put the points standings up for it as well since I doubt any of us are familiar with them...me included.
1 - Nationwide at Loudon; 3:30pm EST Saturday (entry list)
2 - Trucks at Iowa; 8pm EST Saturday (entry list)
4 - Cup at Loudon; 1pm EST Sunday (entry list)
Hmm...looks like the order for any tiebreakers is as follows: Kristen (with the first 'pefecta' this season I believe), CR, Hanny, Moseby, SB, Dwindy, Tez and Jon...with anyone else welcome to give it a bash.
Usual trifecta rules apply of course :)
