In The Groove - March 25, 2009

A new weekly series dedicated to bring you, a peek at the Highs and Lows of racing randomness. Welcome to In The Groove.

The High Groove

Running first in the High Groove is Andy Kane, the winner of the contest to name Kurt Busch's backwards victory lap. The winning name? "Unwind Lap." Thanks to KLVALUS for giving us the heads-up on the contest.

Running second in the High Groove is Tony Stewart and the Tony Stewart Foundation for donating an undisclosed amount of money to cover surgery costs for a three-year old Shih Tzu with a broken back, and the cost of the dog’s special "wheelchair" to make up for losing the use of his hind legs.

Running third in the High Groove is the Indy testing out at Barber Motorsports Park here in Alabama over the past weekend. Great weather, great speeds, and check out the great pics of Dario Franchitti’s hair nowadays. Dude! Hopefully, our State officials, the track officials, and the entire experience of 20,000 fans showing up throughout the weekend will convince Mr. George to bring an Indy race here, soon!

The Low Groove

P1 in the Low Groove goes to Paul Menard this week. Daddy Menard, can you pretty-please stop the cash flow? Cut it off! Immediately! I know he apologized, but punting Morgan Shepherd in the Nationwide race at Bristol is just uncalled for. Hey Paul - Mr. Shepherd doesn’t have unlimited resources like you and you messed up like one-third of his inventory. You’ve had your 15 minutes of LAME. But, he’ll be praying for you, I’m sure. Additionally, Mr. Shepherd’s news release about his Bristol weekend didn’t even call Menard out. Bummer.

P2 in the Low Groove is NASCAR. Making changes to the All Star Race. Will it never end? I know, the answer is NO.

P3 in the Low Groove goes to Clint Bowyer for appearing on a show called The Biggest Loser. Why? Just because. It is ironic, isn’t it?

In The Groove’s thought for the day.... do the drivers Google themselves?
