A few random racing thoughts on a cold, windy Thursday morning in Georgia:
There once was a time when I started my day by picking up the newspaper first thing in the morning and reading a great columnist like the late Lewis Grizzard.

I’ve gotta get Larry the Cable Guy to come over and take a look at my set. Apparently I’m not picking up the same race telecast that the boys in the booth are watching.
Last week at California they kept raving about the “close racing” and “tight competition.”
Somehow I missed it, just […]

Whenever I hear someone mention NASCAR’s Lucky Dog I’m not sure if they’re talking about a freebie pass under caution or Jimmie Johnson.
Johnson seems to race with Lady Luck riding shotgun. Last Sunday at California was a perfect example. A caution came out just as Johnson entered pit road. It couldn’t have been timed more […]

Pedley: Bye-Bye To La La Land?

Good advice can come from some pretty unlikely sources. Like, say, the following advice:
“My grandmother had a saying: ‘Go little where wanted, go not at all where little wanted.’ ”
It’s advice that NASCAR might want to consider in the coming months. And for a couple of reasons; because of its high degree of common sense […]
