Mikey's 1000th NASCAR Start - Take Two 
  autumndandelion
 
15th October 2008 @ 21:06
  Hi, everyone! Yesterday, I said that Mikey's 1,000th NASCAR start is coming up at Martinsville this weekend. Turns out, it's not until Atlanta next weekend. Duane Cross from NASCAR.com corrected me when I emailed him today to ask if he could mention this when writing about Mikey leading up to Martinsville.

This is what he wrote: Hey Kellyanne – I’ve been tracking this for a while … and our database is one race off. He did not drive in the Race No. 26 of the 1992 Busch Series (so he has 270 N’wide starts).

Instead, Race No. 1,000 will be at Atlanta – and we have a very nice package that will roll out on Wednesday, Oct. 22.

So it's another week away, but how awesome is it that something special is in the works for Mikey over on NASCAR.com?

  Is anyone going to Martinsville this weekend? If you are, and you happen to see Mikey, be sure to congratulate him on making his 1,000th NASCAR start this weekend.

That's right - 1,000th!!!

Martinsville will be his 721st Cup start. Add that to his 271 Nationwide starts and 8 Truck Series starts, and that's 1,000. It's a major milestone, and I hope it's recognised this weekend. So spread the word!

  Hey, y'all! I just wanted to let you know that Mikey is currently on the large cup at Wendy's, along with some other people you might recognise. The image appears to be faded on all the cups, unless I got the only two that didn't come out sharp, but they're still cool.

We pick a new person to try to eliminate each day and today (Jan 8-9) it's Rusty Wallace. Tomorrow is possibly Schrader. Vote for Rusty here. Save Mikey.
Do not vote for Mikey or he can be eliminated.

Mikey's New Look!!!

Everybody has GOT to check out this picture!!!

http://users.ameritech.net/tazz013/D6NAPA4277WA.jpg

WOW!!!! That is AWESOME!!! That's my new wallpaper on my computer!! WOOOHOOOO!!!

Look at how many sponsors went with him! I would like to thank Napa Domino's Best Western Klaussner's Coca Cola Remington... and hello CAT! Wow, it looks like he has more sponsors than he had before! Although I did notice that Nabisco didn't come with him. They're the only ones though, right?

And it looks like Klaussner's is promoting their Sofa Express affiliate. When I saw it on the deck lid of the new paint scheme, I was wondering if Bill Davis Racing had a conflicting sponsor or what was the deal. But no, that's Klaussner's too. They didn't used to be on the deck lid. That's cool to see them there! They've been with Mikey for several years now, and whenever I buy furniture, I'm sure going to look to buy Klaussner's loot!

EDIT: And this picture too!!

GRRRRRRR!!! What the hell does Mikey have to do to get a damn break!?!?! He couldn't buy a break right now to save his life. This sucks! It's one thing if a driver causes his own problems, but it's so upsetting when they get involved in something they had nothing to do with. I'm not saying Kasey purposely caused that, but DAMN!

Also...I hope Tony Stewart gets out at the end of the race and beats Jimmie AND Chad with a Coke bottle. Enough said.

ETA

It's a good thing I'm on Prozac and don't have a way to get to all of the drivers that are fucking up Mikey's day. They'd have one very UNHAPPY Mikey fangirl on their hands!!! Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com

If you could see me right now, you would see my angry face. I hate that Johnson won, and I hate that Busch came in second. Mikey was doing so well damn it! He didn't want to pit but they told him he had to. I just wish they had listened to the man! He had a car to win the race!!!


Wow, when Jimmie got out of his car at the winner's circle...did I hear BOOOOs?! ;0)

  Man, what's going on with Mikey's Busch team? Two straight weeks not making it in. That makes me so sad!! Hopefully tomorrow night will be a good one for the #15 team. I know he's out of the chase, but I still want to see him do well the rest of the year.

I just hope that if there are as many wrecks during the race tomorrow as there have been tonight...Mikey is NOT in them.
