NASCAR in Martinsville

Tiredawg has a written a really good post on Martinsville history. There are also some new facts(?) about the Jeff Gordon controversy. I don’t know how he stays on top of all this, but he sure does. He must be a huge Jeff Gordon fan.
The great Diecast Dude has an interesting post, Kurt Busch: All American Boy! over at his abode.
Take a look at these while you wait for the next saga in NASCAR: Men of Daring vs The Aliens.
Coming to your area sooooooon.

Race car driver Paul Dana killed in crash at Homestead-Miami Speedway today.



Paul Dana was killed shortly after the warm up session began, in a horrendous two car crash with Ed Carpenter at Homestead- Miami Speedway this morning.
Ed Carpenter is listed as upgraded from critical to stable condition this evening. Our prayers are with him for a speedy recovery. We are very grateful he is ok.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Tanya and the rest of Paul’s freinds and family.
Paul Dana, age 30, was a native of St. Louis, and a resident of Indianapolis. He earned a journalism degree from Northwestern University and briefly covered motorsports for several publications. His race career started ten years ago in the Bridgestone Racing School Mechanics Championship where he scored two wins and six top-five finishes. Thereafter, he advanced to the Bridgestone Racing School Championship Series, the Skip Barber Formula Dodge Series and then to the FF1600 SCCA Nationals. Thereafter, he made his debut in the USF2000 series in 2001 and was a rookie in the Indy Pro Series in 2003. A year later he finished second in the IPS point standings with a victory at Milwaukee.
A year ago, Dana made his IndyCar Series debut at Homestead, finishing tenth in the Ethanaol Hemelgarn Racing entry. He competed in two more races before suffering a broken back during a practice session at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. He spent the remainder of the 2005 recovering from his injuries, and today’s Toyota Indy 300 was to be his first race since the accident.


You can post your condolences to his family here.
I will not post for 24 hrs in memory of Paul and out of respect for his loved ones.
God Speed Paul.
Preferably, on Ethanol.

We will miss you, Little Buddy.

NASCAR Astro Predictions – It’s Bristol Baby!!


Here are today’s scopes for Bristol. I am posting them in order of significant aspects in order of strength and influence. Pay close attention to Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch’s scopes. I swear I don’t just make this stuff up.
Guess who’s scope has the most significant aspect’s of all?
**There are a lot of scope’s that refer to sexual/physical energy. The days that these aspects are active,when it comes down to the action of racing, means they will be feeling a lot of passion. Aggressive root chakra passion. Think about what male animal’s in the wild are like during rutting season. Add a tiny little track and a bunch of cars going really fast round and round with no room to move and…well, I think you get the picture.
There are also several signicant driver’s that have scope’ of the exact opposite nature. Weird day. I should probably look at my own and the #1 #88 fans today too. Remember the last Bristol race we watched together.

Chad Knauss, born 5 August 1971
Theme: The loftier side
This is usually a very positive influence, making you feel very benevolent and generous toward those around you. Today during the day your spirit is inclined toward contemplation of the loftier aspects of life. You are not concerned with the nasty little details that make life less than it should be, although you are aware of them. But you simply cannot see any point in paying any attention to them.
Emotionally you feel quite good, for this influence promotes optimism and positive thinking. At times this influence indicates self- righteousness and smug arrogance, as if you considered yourself as the embodiment of social truth and wisdom. This attitude may not be entirely conscious on your part, but it may be subtly evident in your phrasing or in an unspoken attitude toward others.
Welcome back Chad!… (** A Clance’ confession: I sure do love this guy. If he were driving, h would be right up there with Tony, Robby, and Kenny Wallace)

Tony Stewart, born 20 May 1971

Theme:An ambiguous day
For most people this is a good influence, a time when you will feel like being with another person and expressing your love. For lovers this can be quite an amorous time. You will have a strong feeling that by yourself you are not quite complete and that you need someone else to make you whole. This feeling is not born out of personal insecurity; it is a real need and desire to give and receive love. However, for some persons at some times, this influence can have a negative effect, almost the reverse of the above. It can make you overly self-involved, so wrapped up in yourself that you do not relate very successfully to others. Or you may demand more love than you are willing to give. But for this to occur there must be a predisposition to it in your nature.

Matt Kenseth, born 10 March 1972

Theme:Physical attraction
This influence usually arouses your interest in finding or enjoying a partner and contributes to the physical side of a sexual relationship. But its energy may cause discord, especially if there are hidden tensions in the relationship. A reasonably healthy relationship will have little difficulty during this time. But if your relationship is in trouble, you will probably have arguments and other forms of discord, all arising from unexpressed sexuality. If you are not currently involved in a sexual relationship, you will probably be inordinately attracted to find a partner, without being very discriminating. Therefore this is not the best influence under which to start a relationship, since it may be based only on physical attraction.

Kurt Busch, born 4 August 1978

Theme:Indiscriminate affection
This influence can lead to rather indiscriminate affection, because your desire to love someone overrules your normal sense of discretion. This is not especially dangerous, although a certain amount of discretion is still desirable. It would be unwise to make a permanent commitment to a love affair that begins under this influence until you have had time to think about it. This influence might produce such extreme emotionalism between you and a loved one that you would not be able to handle your problems objectively. If you have been having problems with each other before, don’t try to have a calm, rational discussion just now, for it would lead only to an emotional confrontation with little communication. If all else is well, this should be a time of warm and friendly feelings between you and your loved ones.

Mark Martin, born 9 January 1959

Theme:Physical attraction
This influence usually arouses your interest in finding or enjoying a partner and contributes to the physical side of a sexual relationship. But its energy may cause discord, especially if there are hidden tensions in the relationship. A reasonably healthy relationship will have little difficulty during this time. But if your relationship is in trouble, you will probably have arguments and other forms of discord, all arising from unexpressed sexuality. If you are not currently involved in a sexual relationship, you will probably be inordinately attracted to find a partner, without being very discriminating. Therefore this is not the best influence under which to start a relationship, since it may be based only on physical attraction.

Dale Jarrett, born 26 November 1956

Theme: An overall plan

This influence signifies a great opportunity to know yourself through your relationship with and effect upon your environment. You are highly disciplined and able to channel all your energies toward any objective you wish to attain. There is a close relationship between who you are and what you do. So take this opportunity to examine your life and the structures you have built into it. Today you can organize and make an overall plan for the way you would like to order your affairs and then arrange them accordingly. Because you work very thoroughly and meticulously under this influence, your efforts will achieve lasting results. This is also a good time to undertake any intellectual discipline or technique that requires concentration and attention to detail.

Elliot Sadler, born 30 April 1975

Theme:Creative energies

*** This influence is most likely to arouse your interest in being with a partner, because it most strongly affects the sex drive. You may want to make love with someone even though you do not care for him or her emotionally. And if there is no outlet for this energy, it may cause arguments and discord between you and your lover. The effects of this influence are not limited to physical love, however. In a larger sense it arouses all creative energies. This is a good time to be involved in any creative work that requires you to be physically active. Abstract or intellectual creation, such as writing poetry or music, especially some of the current popular forms, would be excellent, as would vigorous work in sculpture or another art form that demands physical energy, such as dance.

Kyle Busch, born 2 May 1985

Theme:An understanding atmosphere

You are particularly perceptive during this time – you have an almost infallible feeling for the fine, often unnoticed sensitivities of others and can take these into account during team-work and in conversations. In this way you create an open, sympathetic atmosphere in which your counterpart feels relaxed and secure. This is an excellent background for all personal contact and private talks with people who are close to you. Perhaps small hurts that others have suffered, which have made them sensitive, will come up in conversation. Should you find out that you yourself – even if unintentionally – were the cause of this injury, you now have the opportunity to make this good. Even small wounds need to be healed.

PEEP!!PEEP?? (**sometime I just cannot control myself.)

Greg Biffle born 23 December 1969

Theme:Distorted views

Today during the day fancies and illusions may become more important than reality. With some people this takes the form of simple daydreams, which are not likely to be a problem. After all, daydreaming is quite harmless. This is not a good time to make decisions or to embark upon a course of action that requires clear thinking. Subconscious influences are often very strong during this time, and they can distort your views in just about any area. Old points of view, habits picked up in childhood, prejudices ­ all can mislead you under this influence. People with an alcohol or drug problem may have difficulty with this influence. It gives everyone a strong desire to leave the real world, which strengthens some people’s dependence on substances.

Jimmy Johnson, born 17 September 1975

Theme:Learning to trust
*** Valid during many months: Under this influence you will become increasingly aware that all the truly important events in your life occur without your conscious intervention. This will help you to act with more calm and composure in those areas where you had difficulties in the past or found it hard to make any headway. You should now find it easier to deal with things in a relaxed manner, not brooding so morosely over your own failings and inadequacies. This will also help you to be more understanding when others make mistakes, making you more forgiving. Most people’s perception contains blind spots which shield them from some of their deeper and more complex emotions which would otherwise reduce their ability to cope with everyday life. Under this influence you could have the opportunity to come to terms with some of the darker and more hidden influences of your nature, without falling into a state of despair and depression. You are also now more able to get to the bottom of any sexual problems you may have. Your increased intuition will help you to receive and interpret the images and dreams rising from your unconsious which would otherwise remain unnoticed. These will help you to become aware of hurt which you have suppressed since your childhood and adolescence, which can initiate the process of healing. And, provided that you can remain trusting and open, you may now receive healing energy from a wide variety of sources.

Jeff Gordon, born 4 August 1971

Theme: Beliefs and ideas
* Valid during several weeks: This can be a time when you do more creative intellectual work than usual and attempt to convey your experience and view of the world to others. You will assert and defend the beliefs and ideas that you consider true and important wherever necessary. Obviously this is valuable if you have to influence other people and make an impression on them, but it can also be a danger if you try to beat people over the head with your opinions and ideas. The problem is to avoid identifying your ego with what you believe. When you identify your ego with your ideas, you really believe you are those ideas, and you will defend them as if they were literally your own body. What you can do now is put all of your energy into expanding your mind. Look for experiences that will open up new dimensions of reality.


Dale Earnhardt Jr., born 10 October 1974

Theme: Clearing the air
***Valid during several weeks: During this time there is tension in your life, but it can be used creatively if you are conscious of what you are doing. If you are not, this influence can signify a time of conflicts, especially with those closest to you, such as your partner and others whom you must cooperate with. Even your intimate, positive relationships may suffer at this time. The problem is that you will find it difficult to give in and compromise as necessary to proper cooperation. In any close relationship, there is often too much compromise, so that the real complaints and grievances are not aired, which in the long run tends to weaken even a fine relationship. Now is the time when these repressed grievances can be brought out into the open, which should result in a real clearing of the air between you.

Martin Truex JR, born 29 June 1980

Theme: A compulsive quality
This influence intensifies your emotional expression throughout the day and makes your relationships more intense. You will feel your love for someone quite strongly today, and you will be able to express it meaningfully to your loved one. Sexual desire is also stimulated by this influence, but only as part of the overall emotional intensification. A new relationship that starts under this influence is likely to be quite intense. You feel drawn to another as if by magical power, because the other person represents something inside you that needs expression through a love relationship. It is really the power of your own psyche that you feel. Such a relationship can be quite good, although it is desirable that the compulsive quality wear off before you settle down to a long-term relationship.


Kevin Harvick, born 8 December 1975

Theme: Just a kind word (**ROFLAO**)
This influence makes you think a great deal about your relationships to others, not in unhappy terms, but quite positively. You are much more willing to give up what you normally consider your inalienable rights for the sake of maintaining peace and harmony. You are in a compromising mood and feel that few problems are important enough to warrant fighting over. Obviously this has its bad and good side, but for most people this influence has a very cheering and positive effect. You want to do what you can to help anyone who is having problems, even if it is just a kind word. Unfortunately, if you are alone now you will want very much to be with someone. Therefore this influence can actually signify a time of loneliness, if for some reason you have to remain alone.

Jamie McMurray, born 3 June 1976

Theme: Subjectivity
Today during the day your closest contacts will take on a more emotional tone. You will be able to communicate your feelings more easily to your partner , a close working colleague or anyone else whom you encounter on an intimate level. Although the effects of this influence are not very difficult to deal with, you should be aware that you are likely to be so emotional and subjective in your relations with others that you may have difficulty seeing someone else’s point of view. However, this influence favors situations in which you have to be sensitive to another’s feelings or in which someone else has to be sensitive to yours. In your contacts with others you will seek warmth, support and nurture, and you will be equally capable of giving these to others when necessary.

Denny Hamlin, born 18 November 1980


Theme:No loose ends
* This influence brings your personal, domestic and emotional life to prominence. You will feel more integrated and at one with yourself in many ways now than at any other time. And your relationships with other people, especially women, should be more harmonious as well. This is because you approach everything as a total person, with no loose ends hanging out to signify divided intentions. The only problems with this manifestation will arise if you are afraid of your feelings. Then this can be a turbulent and uncomfortable time, for you will be confronting an aspect of yourself that you do not like. But disliking your emotions is the problem, not the emotions themselves. If you find this transit disturbing, you should examine your attitude toward your emotions.

Kyle Petty, born 2 June 1960

Theme: Helpful words
This influence is experienced in different ways. Perhaps you are very bad-tempered at the moment, and overreact to the least sign of what you interpret to be criticism or rejection. Thus misunderstandings can quickly develop, and instead of trying to clear them up, you withdraw hurt and perhaps a bit sorry for yourself. If you can, however, estimate how much of this situation is the result of your own anxious expectations, this quality of time will help you to be empathic and understanding towards others. Then you will also find helpful words for everyone who is in a similar mood to you. Poetic and romantic music have a pronounced effect on you at this time.

Bobby Labonte, born 8 May 1964

Theme: Harmonious cooperation
Valid during several weeks: This is one of the best influences for all relationships: love affairs, relationships with partners, with coworkers, even with enemies. Ego forces are so in tune at this time that you can create the proper balance between yourself and everyone you meet. In your marriage or other love relationship, you will be able to express affection easily and make your feelings clear to your partner. In other partnerships, including professional ones, you are able to understand the needs of your partner so that you can arrive at maximum understanding and work together harmoniously. Be careful not to let your amiability prevent you from standing up for your own rights. You need not worry about alienating your partner, because you will be able to make it clear that you are working for your mutual benefit.

Casey Mears, born 12 March 1978

Theme:Do nothing
Weak, transient effect: This influence, although brief, can have a disruptive effect on your relationships. The problem is that it tends to make you feel very lonely and isolated, as if there is no one you can communicate with. And this can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Perhaps unconsciously you send out signals to others declaring that you do not want to be bothered. You may get into a depressed mood that baffles the people around you, so they give up on you for the time being and stop trying to help you. There is a strong tendency to look on the dark side of life and to react much more strongly to disappointments and failures than to reinforcement from others and success. The best way to handle such feelings is to do nothing. Don’t take them seriously and don’t make any decisions based on the way you feel now.

Ryan Newman born 8 December 1977

Theme:Good investments
You will have great sensitivity to beauty today and an appreciation of lovely and well-made objects. This is a good day for buying clothing and art objects or for planning to redecorate your home. You have a strong desire to gratify your senses, but not to the point of being compulsive or foolish about spending. If you spend a lot of money on something that you want, the chances are it will be a good investment. In fact the best purchases to make today would be objects that will increase in value as they get older, such as jewelry or antiques. Your relationships should be very positively affected, and you might even start a new romantic interest. This is also a good time to smooth out any difficulties you are having with another person.

Carl Edwards born 15 August 1979

Theme: At ease with yourself
This can be a very pleasant time. You feel at ease with yourself, benign and rather self-indulgent, which is fine as long as you don’t have work that must be done. You feel that there is nothing you do not deserve, and you are likely to buy some expensive pastime only to regret the cost later. Love relationships will normally be smooth during this time, although a problem may arise if you have a disagreement with a loved one or friend. Instead of defending your own position when you have a perfect right to, you may compromise on issues that really should not be compromised. If you have a difficult negotiation to transact, avoid doing it during this time. The negotiation may succeed, but the results may not be to your advantage.

Jeff Gordon, born 4 August 1971

Theme: Beliefs and ideas *
Valid during several weeks: This can be a time when you do more creative intellectual work than usual and attempt to convey your experience and view of the world to others. You will assert and defend the beliefs and ideas that you consider true and important wherever necessary. Obviously this is valuable if you have to influence other people and make an impression on them, but it can also be a danger if you try to beat people over the head with your opinions and ideas. The problem is to avoid identifying your ego with what you believe. When you identify your ego with your ideas, you really believe you are those ideas, and you will defend them as if they were literally your own body. What you can do now is put all of your energy into expanding your mind. Look for experiences that will open up new dimensions of reality.

Kasey Kahne, born 10 April 1980

Theme: Enjoy yourself
Under this influence you are likely to feel quite good about yourself in a positive way. Also you will want to be with other people, particularly to have a good time. You do not want to attend to anything that is not immediately enjoyable and gratifying. It is a good day for play, although you can get work done if you really enjoy what you are doing. With this influence you also seek to expand your daily routine. Today you won’t be satisfied to do what you usually do. You would like to learn more about yourself, the world and other people. This is a good day for beginning a trip, especially a vacation. It is a time to relax from the rigors of everyday life and enjoy yourself. Despite your present casual approach to life, in your encounters with others you are able to make an impression.

Robby Gordon, born 2 January 1969
Theme: A cheerful mood
Probably you will react to this influence by feeling quite good. Your mood is cheerful and optimistic, and you may feel as though nothing can go wrong with your world today. Obviously this can have both good and bad points. All that is necessary for this energy to work well is to avoid going overboard on any matter, but that is precisely what can happen at this time. You may spend too much money, overindulge in luxuries or be wasteful. On the other hand, you may feel courageous enough to do something you have never done before. This influence can really build up your self-confidence, but be sure to stop short of arrogance. Any negative energies that you put out will become the source of conflicts with others. If you overstep your bounds, you will step on other people, and they will tell you so.
