Kyle Busch’s Fiancee

If you didn’t already dislike NASCAR driver Kyle Busch then I think this little diddy will push you right over the edge into pure hatred. Kyle “King Douche” Busch is engaged to 24-year-old bombshell Samantha Sarcinella and two are set to be married New Year’s Eve in Chi-Town. Not only is Samantha a beauty she also has a degree in Psychology from Purdue and is now working on her master’s degree in organizational psychology through Austin Peay. I have never done this before and I will never do it again, but congratulations Kyle!

Mayfield Mud Slinging Continues

The Jeremy Mayfield saga continues unravel with more and more bizarre news and accusations and the latest coming earlier today. Mayfield who was suspended a few months ago from NASCAR for allegedly smoking crystal meth has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against his stepmother Lisa Mayfield over the death of his father. Mayfield and his legal team filed the suit late last week in North Carolina Superior Court. The lawsuit doesn’t state specifically how his stepmother was involved in the death of Terry Mayfield, but claims her “intentional actions” were a key role in his death. The investigation performed by police stated Terry Mayfield died from a suicidal gunshot to his chest, but it seems Jeremy thinks his stepmother is the culprit. This story has already been an ugly one for the Mayfield family, but it could get a lot worse before there is resolution.

Is Watching NASCAR Safe?

ATTENTION NASCAR FANS: Before you buy your next ticket to the track, ask yourself one question – Is my last will and testament up to date?

If you missed the final lap of the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway Sunday, then you not only missed a thrilling ending to the worlds fastest sport, but you also missed one of the most terrifying situations in racing.

A last lap crash, on the front stretch…with a car going airborne…and heading straight towards the fans.

In case you missed it here’s a replay…

If that catch fence fails or Carl Edwards’ car is a few feet higher, then we would have an awful tragedy being broadcast all over the news today. Eight NASCAR fans were treated for minor injuries as a result of the accident, but no one, including none of the drivers, was seriously hurt. In fact, Carl Edwards stepped out of his car and jogged to finish line in a symbolic finish to the race

Is it a testament to the technology and engineering that no one is mourning a loved one today or is it just divine intervention? Maybe its a little bit of both. The fact that no fan was seriously hurt is amazing. The fact that Carl Edwards isn’t in a hospital is a amazing.

So the question remains: Even though no one was seriously hurt, is it safe to sit in the stands and watch a NASCAR race?

I think the answer for race fans is yes.

First, consider the odds of being in position on a track to witness this type of wreck. They are pretty big and you would have a better chance of getting in an accident after the race just trying to get out of the parking area.

Second, this doesn’t mean that NASCAR and the track owners will not be investigating the mechanics of this crash for months to come. You can say what you want about this sport but I believe on thing to be true…safety is a number one concern for all involved.

There were at least 3 other cars that I saw yesterday hit the wall head on (similar to a crash that killed Dale Earnhardt) and they walked away. Why? Technology like the Hans Device and softer barrier walls, which a few years ago didn’t exist, kept those drivers not only alive but unhurt.

I would put my money on the development of a safer catch fence in the near future…possibly one that does not allow debris through, as a result of this accident.

Like racing or not, the finish to this race was thrilling, terrifying and amazing all in the span of about 10 seconds.

You will definitely see me at the track…and I just looked…my will is up to date!

Michael McDowell Qualifying Accident

Rookie driver Michael McDowell was involved in an horrific accident during qualifying this past Friday at Texas Motor Speedway. Check out this video clip of the Michael McDowell crash and then tell me how he was able to walk away from the mangled mess!

Little E En Fuego

Little E

Dale Earnhardt Jr. won his second race in a row today for Hendrick Motorsports at Daytona by crossing the finish line first in qualifying race Duel 1. Earnhardt led 26 of the 60 laps in this victory and he is quickly proving that NASCAR’s most popular driver will bring many smiles to his fans this year.


Little E Wins Bud Shootout

Dale Earnhardt Jr

Dale Earnhardt Jr. won his very first race for Hendrick Motorsports last night at Daytona International Speedway. We are one week away from the Daytona 500 and Hendrick Motosports looks better than ever with the addition of Little E alongside Jimmy Johnson and Jeff Gordon. This should be a very interesting Sprint Cup (yes, now it’s Sprint rather than Nextel) season and SportsUnderground.com looks for Earnhardt to be strong candidate for Sprint Cup Winner in ’08.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s New Number

There are whispers in NASCAR that Little E and his camp have asked Nextel Cup rookie David Gilliland for the #38. Brilliant! This combines the dearly departed #3 of Earnhardt Sr. and Jr.’s #8. I hope this is true.

Harvick vs Montoya

Check out this video clip from the race at Watkins Glen yesterday when Kevin Harvick and Juan Pablo Montoya fight like two little girls.

Daytona Pepsi 400 Final Lap

McMurray edged out Kyle Busch in a phenomenal race to the finish line last night at Daytona. Check out the final lap video clip below.

Dale JR Departs DEI

Dale Earnhardt Jr

Well, it’s official that after this year Dale Earnhardt Jr. will not be racing for DEI. This is the same company his departed father Dale Earnhardt Sr. created back in 1998. Little E stated in a news conference today that he was never even close to a deal with DEI based on negotiations with his step-mother Teresa Earnhardt.

Let me first say this will be a very quick end to DEI because without Jr. I can’t see it surviving. Secondly, there is going to be a circus following Jr. everywhere he goes to try and bring him to their racing team. Good luck because it’s going to take some SERIOUS cash to land this icon.
