Hey, if you think Danica's cute, try boppin' over to Xtreme 4X4
some time. Jessi Combs is right at home with pipe benders, grinders,
wrenches of all sorts, air tools, plasma cutters, MIG & TIG welders,
and puts together 4WD vehicles then DRIVES THEM. What more could a
man ask for? Did I mention that she's just as good looking as Danica
but Jessi has an even better personality? I'm in lust.
Xtreme4x4 is shown on Spike TV Saturday and Sunday, just before
Trucks! or at http://xtreme4x4tv.com

This subject is off topic. Just a few weeks back woodworking types like
Jodi Marks and the Hometime gal were getting all the attention. These hot
rodders and racers are tainting the woodworkers. Next thing you know,
you'll be having impure thoughts and grow hair on your palms and go blind.
I'm up to bifocals myself.

She and David Marks do about the same when reading scripted material.
Don't you watch/record the weekend morning PowerBlock on Spike? Danica
is the hostess for that and pops up between segments to usher in the
My truck, too, and I'd be happy to give her a full-body massage
afterwards. Internal and external. <domg>
After a few more sorties I'm sure you'll get it right.
http://hotrod.com/racers/ A lot of these gals got my attention, too.
Mo Powah to 'em! Disney made a movie about the Enders sisters.
If you turn the United States on its side,
everything loose will fall to California.
I can't watch much open wheel racing after watching Nascar. Open wheel
just seems so tame in comparision.
I don't watch much racing because each race is a two to three hour
investment of time. I will probably watch at least some of the Indy 500.
My time is better spent woodworking and similiar pursuits.
I grew up around racing. My dad used to build flat-head Fords for
Roger McCluskey (http://www.champcarstats.com/year/1973.htm ) when he
was starting out here in Tucson. I gravitated into the automotive
machine shop biz for a while until I got smart enough to go into EE.
I did drag racing and was the crew chief on a dirt track
super-modified (a sprinter with a full roll cage) until my driver was
killed in a light plane crash. I used to go to Riverside for the GP
races and saw the likes of Sterling Moss (the best race car driver
that ever lived IMHO), Dan Gurney, and all of the big name USAC guys
when they ran stockers on the road course.
But I've got to agree that NASCAR (live) is awesome. I've been to the
last two Phoenix races and didn't realize how good they were until
seeing it live. Being a guest in the best suite at the track isn't
But, that said, give me a wingless sprint car race on dirt anytime.
Alcohol fumes and dirt in your eyes. Doesn't get any better than
Get a DVR with a hard drive and record the races. You can skip
through the 4 minute commercials and watch the rest a 2X speed until
something exciting happens. I even do this on the races I see live,
that way I can see what I missed.
Sheese. How about an even cuter chick in a 6000 hp, 2000-pound car.
Your girl is here too but she can't hold a candle to Ashley.
Born 40 years too soon. Where were these women when I was drag racing?
For those who don't know who Danica Patrick is, these pictures in this link
should fill you in a little on her (includes her pictures from FHM):
But besides that, she does certainly seem to be able to drive.
Port Huron, Michigan
I take it from his e-mail provider that he is in Canada - do you know where?
It's very interesting living in a border city and having your metropolitan
area actually encompassing two countries. My daughter chose to take French
all through school here, as many of her friends were across the river and
were involved in French immersion classes, so learning to speak French
became very important to her.
Port Huron, Michigan
Well, Fred, 3 of my daughter all took French immersion, one of them
still is. It's very handy here in this 'officially bilingual' country.
My SWMBO (doesn't rhyme with BMBO) gets a few of her favourite groceries
in Port Huron. I still do the odd Lowe's or HD visit and stop in and get
a pretzel at Birchwood.
My sister, who lives in KC (Olathe) flies into either Flint or Detroit
so I'm across that bridge often.
Sarnia is my favourite place on earth. It has everything... just like
She's certainly got a great p.r. machine behind her. For somebody who's
never won a car race to get the kind of attention she has is pretty
remarkable. Saw some "news" story about last night, they called her a
"champion race car driver" again, pretty good p.r. for someone who's never
won a race.
I hope she does well, and then gets back to where she belongs, in Champ

Nope. That's racin'. Of course in open-wheel cars trying to spin
somebody out isn't done. Most, but clearly not all, of the crashes
are due to slower, non-competitive cars and drivers that probably
shouldn't be on the race track. A.J. Foyt IV leaps to mind.
This is not to say that they are unskilled, just that there are three
or four teams with the depth (deep pockets) who can afford limitless
hours of development, practice, back-up cars, etc. and dominate. The
number of driving positions on these teams is limited so other good
drivers are left to drive inferior equipment, with limited practice
time, so-so pit crews, and so forth.
from what I heard after the race, they're going to be looking hard at a few
other races that A.J. IV ran and was involved in crashes while being passed...
I'd guess that if there is a pattern there, they could suspend his racing
license or something??
Like one of the drivers said, if you're doing 180 mph and being passed by
someone doing well over 200, you should KNOW where they are and that you need to
get out of the way.. especially with the radios in all the cars now..
