I used to have a friend who would tell people "remember, we're not laughing with you." I laugh WITH Kyle a lot because he's an amusing guy, but I laugh AT Jimmy a lot because he's really not.

There was much rejoicing!

I've always thought Jimmy Spencer was a hoot....mostly because he can't form a grammatically correct sentence to save his doggone life. I will admit that I do find his style of criticism to be a bit lacking in class so I'm not particularly sad to have Kyle Petty taking over for him. Kyle isn't always entirely grammatically correct, either, but he's much more charming than Jimmy, and a lot more amusing in a good way than Spencer, too. (Kind of like I'm laughing WITH him and not AT him.)

They put up several billboards in Daytona.

Plus they are on Facebook

From the Bristol page on Facebook.


Tickets
"You belong at Bristol! Got yours yet? Call toll-free 1.866.415.4158."

Bristol Motor Speedway. "If anyone is looking for a "suite" experience at Bristol, ya gotta check out The Bristol Club. Fan 'em on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/bristolclub."

Sometimes calling direct is best. It may be they are only selling season packages right now. They switched over to Ticketmaster which is a pain in the posterior.
If you need the number I can get it but go to the BMS site and you should be able to find it. The area code is 423

There are Bristol tickets for the night race? I called and had my name put on the waiting list and haven't heard anything. Where'd you hear that tickets were available?

I still haven't made up my mind on the camp site yet. It's tough for me since I haven't been there before. I don't know if it's more advantageous to be close to the track or further away. So, paralysis by overanalysis has taken over. I haven't done anything b/c I just don't know what to do. emoticon

Yes, we will be going to MIS in June. We had planned on going to Bristol in August instead of MIS. Time will tell........

Oh, and back to JS, I've also heard other non-professional stories from sponsor reps at MIS. Apparently he's not exactly very popular, for various reasons, with many of the sponsors. Aside from that though, I just never liked him. Can ya tell??? LOL!

I was wondering what happened to Spence but I'm happy to see that as I like Kyle better than him.

Angie, that's a great take on his "professionalism".
Are you still planning a trip to MIS?

Oh and in case anybody wants to go, there are good tickets available for Bristol and here in Charlotte for all events.
We found a great campground in Bristol and will be staying a week there for both Spring and Fall races.

Doin' a great big happy dance here!!

I can't tolerate JS at all! He has no class and can't even speak a full sentence. He's just a big blow hard if you ask me. Someone who sits there and rakes others over the coals when he couldn't cut the mustard just doesn't sit well with me. Most of the drivers he trashes have more talent in their little finger than he ever had, which is why I could never understand how he got that job. I always thought it was interesting, when they had a driver on the show he was just as 'butt kissy' as could be, but when they were gone....they were fair game to slaughter. I hope they eventually just drop him completely.

So, I'm very glad to hear the news. Thanks for the update.

I for one am happy to see Kyle Petty on there. I like him and think he will do a much better job than Spencer.

Don't know if anyone knew this but I just found out SPEED has made some line-up changes. 'Spence' is out of the Sunday line-up and replaced by Kyle Petty for both pre & post-race programs.
This Week in NASCAR has been canceled and they will be announcing some new Monday nite programming. Rumor is one of the new shows will be a quiz show with Spencer as the host.
I know someone who knows someone with SPEED who said Spencer was pulled from Daytona for negative remarks he made about women in racing.
Personally, I think Spencer was too arrogant and opinionated, sometimes enjoyable but too full of himself.

Thoughts?
