I hail from Rockingham, North Carolina. I'm currently a junior English major at UNC-Greensboro. I like football, drag racing, and baseball; but my passion is NASCAR. I've enjoyed writing since I was capable of holding a pencil in my fingers and have recently discovered through this website I can combine my passion for writing with my love for NASCAR.

    Been in negotiations. Came across an empty restaurant in an art museum in Baltimore. It's beautiful and I'm hooked again.

    Just like my dear friend Brett Favre I just can't say quit. Chef's are like that you know.

    Yeah, I read some of your stuff and it seemed pretty good.

    I have a Porsche 944 that I race in SCCA. I saw that you are from Rockingham, and there is an SCCA race there next weekend, but I don't think I can make that race.

    This will support some of the falloff.

    “The 48 car in general is a little behind there. We didn’t participate in some of the test sessions last year, just staying focused on, you know, what we had going on at the time (the Chase). So, no one’s had this car on the big tracks yet. So I think these guys got off to a faster start on the bigger tracks. We’re now getting into the shorter tracks and we’ll have to see how Martinsville, Richmond, Phoenix goes to really compare apples to apples with where we were last year.” Jimmie Johnson 3/19/2008 Frisco, Texas

    So, with that in mind, I ran the numbers comparing the 2007 and 2008 performances of the 24 and 48 cars at Martinsville, Phoenix, and Richmond.
