Rain, rain go away Saturday was Day 7 of the Yellowstone Trail Tour and had us dealing with rain all day. The rain was pretty light in Hartford in the morning, got worse in Hales Corners at noon and was pretty heavy in Kenosha late in the day. The 1917 Oakland is going to be a little waterlogged, although that big “convertible” top was doing a pretty good job […]

Trail of Smoke Friday started at the Comfort Inn in Oshkosh under cloudy skies. For the rest of the day, we would cloud the air a little bit more with white or black or blue exhaust smoke. Dave Sarna said, “That’s patriotic,” but there was no red smoke ever! The day ended at the Super 8 in Hartford, Wis., with a roll of duck tape, some borrowed plastic wrap […]

Dave & Bob Get the Oakland Rolling (and yes, she is old enough to smoke) Dave Sarna and I wanted to get to Gunner’s Great Garage by 8:30 so he could work on the Oakland engine. Bob Hansen (sen) starts work at that ungodly hour and would be there to help Dave. Bob Buchman was also meeting us at 8:30, as was Bob Hanson (son) of WPAK Radio 106.9 AM […]
Talladega Superspeedway- NASCAR’s home for wild, crazy racing. From it’s inception, the Alabama track has been a source of edge of your seat racing, crazy wrecks, feel good stories and controversy.
Talladega Superspeedway was once Dale Earnhardt Jr’s personal playground. Back in the early 2000s, NASCAR’s favorite son won four races in a row between 2001 and 2003. Between 2001 and 2004, Junior racked up five wins and two runner-up finishes in a seven race span. Now are you going to tell me that plate racing is blind luck? I wouldn’t be so sure.
They once said of Earnhardt’s legendary father that he was a man who could “see air.” In reality, it seems that both Dale Earnhardt and his son had/have an astute understanding of the effects of air on one race and its relation to another car around it. While critics have thrown their lion’s share of shade on Dale Earnhardt Jr. concerning his talent in relation to his popularity, there is ample evidence of his savvy regarding the draft.
Drafting partners are a big part of the equation at Talladega. Of additional assistance to Earnhardt is his popularity within the garage, as well as with the fans. If there’s a driver out there that doesn’t like Earnhardt, you don’t hear about it much. You know you can expect some assistance up to a certain point, and then when it comes time to chase the win, you will be raced hard but clean.
This may all make yours truly sound like an Earnhardt apologist, but it’s not meant to be. Life doesn’t always present the Hollywood ending, but a victory at Talledega during his farewell tour seems like a fitting closure considering a championship is not in the offing. Between the playoff scenarios and this story, there’s plenty of great reasons to tune in Sunday. It it is to be, a Junior victory may just happen here.

When we woke up it looked like it was going to rain. My 1917 Oakland has no side curtains (as well as no spare tire). So, we prayed for no rain as we continued on to Marshfield. Car collector Guy Carpenter, of Marshfield, called to tell us that he had arranged for us to use the two-post lift at the home of Al Breu, another area car collector. Dave Sarna […]
