From Beyond the Cockpit: Austin Wayne Self Geared up for Title Run in ARCA

"
It’s more work now. I guess I’m becoming an adult, and it’s a little hard to wake up and pay the bills. You live in North Carolina and you’re basically living racing. Before, you lived racing, but now you live, eat, breathe and sleep racing. It’s around you all the time. I think I saw Greg Biffle at Starbucks yesterday. I call it 'Redneck Hollywood' because it is nothing but race car drivers and the race car life up here. My friends at home ask me what it’s like and I’m like 'man, it’s different.' If you want to be a race car driver, you come to Charlotte and you live it." - Austin Wayne Self on moving to North Carolina and living the life of a full-time racer

Huge Racing Doubleheader Saturday At Fairgrounds Speedway
Racing To Take Green At 6:00 PM April 11
 
(NASHVILLE, TN - April, 10, 2015) The green flag is just about to wave as the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards and the Southern Super Series Late Models return to Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville.  Excitement and buildup is huge for the event which will take place Saturday night, April 11 at the historic facility.
 
The ARCA Racing Series has 32 competitors, representing numerous states and two countries.  The longtime tour is very diverse, running anywhere from Daytona and Talladega to short tracks like Mobile and Nashville, to the dirt tracks at Springfield and DuQuoin.  Grant Enfinger will have his work cut out for him, if he wants to stay unbeaten in 2015.  The talented driver from Alabama has won the first two races on the tour.
While the Troop Aid 200 has a plethora of talented drivers in the starting field, the Southern Super Series list of drivers for the Federated Auto Parts 100 is equally as strong.  Last year’s All American 400 winner John Hunter Nemechek will be one of the favorites.  However, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rookie Daniel Hemric, Donnie Wilson, Harrison Burton, Hunter Robbins, Bubba Pollard, Chuck Barnes, Jr., Kyle Grissom, Casey Smith will all aim to claim a Nashville guitar in victory lane. 
 
The event will also have prerace singing from T Graham Brown, Mark Collie, and Ronnie Bowman, as they perform God Bless America, The National Anthem, and other patriotic songs.
 
            Practice gets underway on Saturday, April 11 at 11:30, with qualifying at 3:15, and racing at 6:00 PM.  Advance reserved seating is $25 for adults and $15 for kids 5-12.  Advance reserved seating is being sold for the top eight rows and is available by calling Fairgrounds Speedway at 615-254-1986.  General admission and the remaining unsold reserved tickets will be on sale at the gates, starting at 11:30 AM Saturday.
 
            In addition, the first 500 retired or active military with proper military identification will get a free grandstand pass for themselves and one family member.
 
            The event is a combined effort between Track Enterprises, Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville, The Fairgrounds Nashville, and So Good! Entertainment.

Now for the reason for creating this site
 
This site was created by me because of frustations with other internet service providers, and is for the use of anyone who's interested in anything about NASCAR. 
 
  However,over time I hope to add other auto racing news,from other auto racing series / venues ,in the hopes of having something here for everyone to enjoy.
 
Now for a little bit about me ,
 
 
I'm Joe,from New Jersey. I've lived in the Garden State for most of my life.  It's also where I've been fighting,to get a major NASCAR track built somewhere in the NYC/NJ area for many years now.

My favorite current driver : KASEY KAHNE
I'm also a fan of :Martin Truex Jr. ( Hey ! He's a "Jersey Guy" !!! I was rooting for him since I first saw him racing .and winning,as a 17 year old,in the modified division at Wall Stadium ( now known as Wall Speedway ) !!!
