As I was saying, this is the best time of the year for sport.

I’ve been watching the NASCAR qualifying and the heat races. And, of course, the lame story of domestic abuse:

Kurt Busch suspended indefinitely by NASCAR, won’t race in Daytona 500

Which I’m not certain, makes a hell of a difference to Mr. Busch. Just watching his public face seems to tell me that. Maybe later, after the race, after the full impact of waking and knowing he isn’t needed at the races – or perhaps when he needs to pay the IRS with limited deductions and income.

Speaking of money. Up to Friday morning they had deleted twenty-eight cars from the inventory. That was using the new qualifying formats.

Now I don’t know if the car engines are figured in the cost of those cars or not – but I’ve heard the announcers say the engines are generally worth $300, 000 and the cars generally go at $120, 000, up, if built from scratch, which the Daytona 500 deserves and get. Scratch built.

A little math and one wonders if the advertising of sponsoring one of those beasties is really worth the cash.

Of course, other companies give an equivalent amount to political candidates with equivalent results at times.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
