So what car did he manage to blow the engine on doing 140?

I guess he wasn't much on the mechanic side.

They should get rid of him. He could give Nascar drivers and fans a bad name.
 
2010-06-01 05:58:46 AM  
I could not figure out who he is, so I read his website and blog - I still don't know who he is besides a drunk (and now a alleged rapist) but his plans to give 10% of all money raised by this website to his future homeless shelter seems pretty damned hinky to me. Read the part on the blog about the homeless couple burning down his camper - Comedy gold...

He has a message board but I can't bring myself to kick him when he is down or I would leave a note for his rapey self to read when he is out of jail.

I do understand where you are coming from - I wondered about it myself. It just seems that somewhere, long ago, I somehow came to the belief that dates were an exception, and you are supposed to put the apostrophe behind the date for shortening.

I could very well be wrong. Could someone clarify this for me?

I guess you could say Momma was a NASCAR fan,
I was born in Talladega up in the stands.
The fans all cheered the second I arrived,
the loudspeaker said "The boy's born to drive!"
We didn't have money for a pacifier,
so I sucked on the valve off a Goodyear tire...
a seven pound, eight ounce, son-of-the-south
born with a taste for racin' in my mouth.

johnphantom: Yeah, cause real Christians are rapists.

Imagine Hamish McDonald, a Scotsman, sitting down with his Glasgow Morning Herald and seeing an article about how the "Brighton Sex Maniac Strikes Again." Hamish is shocked and declares that "No Scotsman would do such a thing." The next day he sits down to read his Glasgow Morning Herald again and this time finds an article about an Aberdeen man whose brutal actions make the Brighton sex maniac seem almost gentlemanly. This fact shows that Hamish was wrong in his opinion but is he going to admit this? Not likely. This time he says, "No true Scotsman would do such a thing."

you put the apostrophe before the date. '85, '80s, etc.

Maybe he was trying to get back in to jail. It's pretty hard to get jobs these days if you've had a criminal conviction, I'd think.

I am sorry, but I still do not see a definitive answer for shortening dates.

Think of it as akin to a contraction. You would not write cant' (for cannot) because the apostrophe stands in for the n & o. With years the apostrophe stands in for the first 2 digits. Here's a nice little style blurb:

"dates For ordinals, spell out "first" through "ninth"; use numerals starting with "10th." Do not use "th" or "st" with dates (Commencement will be Friday, May 21. Not May 21st). When abbreviating years, use an apostrophe to indicate dropped numbers ('99). Use only an "s" to show plural (Health care policy has changed considerably in the '90s)." Taken from Link

Not exactly. Anyone with a NASCAR license driving in a NASCAR sanctioned race is technically a NASCAR driver.

TFA, while technically correct, is pretty misleading though. Of course, the guy's website does nothing to dispel that. A lot of guys who raced regionally in that era will make some claims to having raced against the greats, as just like now sometimes guys would race a level or two down on the same weekend as a big race. Some of the shadier ones will use that little bit of knowledge to try to further whatever it is they're doing...this guy being one of them.

I was going to say this.

He's just some guy who raced in some low level NASCAR sanctioned series a long time ago. NASCAR sanctions (or perhaps sanctioned) lots of small local race series. This guy was just another Saturday night racer at (probably) some podunk race tracks.
 
2010-06-01 09:29:10 AM  
Wow, yeah someone who raced in a couple of races in NASCAR's version of AAA in baseball.
 
2010-06-01 09:40:00 AM  
johnphantom: I am sorry, but I still do not see a definitive answer for shortening dates.

The apostrophe takes the place of the missing letters/numbers. 1980 or '80. If you want to say the decade you can say 1980s or 1980's. You can shorten than to '80s or '80's, or drop the front apostrophe for 80s or 80's. But never just 80'.

Its more like some guy who played Single A claiming to be a professional baseball player. While technically correct its obviously meant to misrepresent who you are.

Look, to be fair, this dude never got above the NASCAR Touring series. That's only a step or two up from the Saturday Night Races At The Fairgrounds.

To put it another way, it's like calling a career bench warmer for the Charleston Riverdogs a New York Yankee, just because they're a farm team for the Yankees.

When you talk NASCAR, be sure to tip your hat to Stroker Ace, whose book, "Stand On It" redefined how much fun it could be to be a reckless driving, womanizing, Seven and Seven(*) drinking, redneck NASCAR driver, back when it was fun. The book is a LOT better than the movie "Stroker Ace", starring Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson.

(*) Seagram's Seven and 7-Up. Accept no substitutions.
