#88 Showcar at Ona Saturday
Listen up, JR Nation - the #88 National Guard showcar will be at Ona Speedway from 1 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27.
The season at Ona is rapidly coming down to the checkered flag, with just a few more weekends of local action between now and the end of October.
There will be a full schedule of racing Saturday night, plus a kids' bike race before the motorized races begin. You gotta love the kids' races. Little ones get at least a half-track advantage. But the big kids still catch up, pass and win. Just one time I'd like to see one of the little girls win. They're so cute with their pink bikes and matching helmets, tassles on the handlebars flapping in the wind.
Well, we digress. Back to JR's car.
The appearance is sponsored by the West Virginia National Guard and members will be there answering your military questions and recruiting. They will also have giveaways, games and challenges for anyone so inclined.
And remember, the Sprint Cup isn't over yet, it's just getting started. JR's in 4th place, just 50 points behind co-leaders (?) Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards. It could still happen. Seriously. Well, maybe if he gets on a big-time major league hot streak. OK, maybe next year. But surely you haven't given up hope. I still believe Tony can win one for the coach this season. Well, maybe.
Speaking of Carl, what a finish Sunday at Dover. The Biff, Matt Kenseth and Flipper, a fight to the finish between the Roush boys. Jack actually smiled Sunday - a rare sight from the usually frowning Cat in the Hat, but it was back to back wins for Biff, so he must have been a little happy.
