Monster Mile… Here Come the Boys!
This weekend the boys are headed to the Monster Mile in Dover, DE for the last time this season. Who’s pumped? I can’t even sit still to write this post I’m so jacked up. It could be this Dale Earnhardt AMP energy drink or it could be the fact that we’re well into the start of the Chase For The Points! This track has broken many hearts and has also made many racer’s dreams come true. Dover seems to have been a “Make or Break” for so many drivers in the past. From 1969 to 1980, 21 of the 22 races were won by drivers who either already had or would go on to win championships in NASCAR’s top series.
This week the rumors have been flying stating “Kyle Busch is losing his MOJO.” What’s a MOJO? God only knows what a MOJO is and my definition is… something a racer has when he’s winning a lot and whining at the same time. So by my definition, I find it hard to believe Kyle Busch is losing his MOJO especially since I can’t see the kid stop his whining and I have a feeling he’s not going to stop winning either.
Kyle Busch looking his best!
Last week I picked Greg Biffle to win because I had that “Gut Feeling,” well this weekend I think Kyle Busch is going to win. He won in Dover earlier this year and it’s his time to win again. He had a rough start in the “Chase” but he’s ruthless and will do whatever it takes to win.
Carl Edwards is going to be another guy to watch this weekend. Obviously he’s leading the points but regardless of where he sits, the guy always does extremely well in Dover. He’s got a great track record and obviously has the skill and drive to win. He’s one guy I can never say anything bad about…
So Unfortunately I won’t be attending the race in person this weekend but luckily for me I’ll be watching it on my Direct TV. Right now Direct TV has a great promotion going on that if you sign up now they will include a NASCAR Hot Pass that allows you to listen to 5 individual driver’s channels as well as a number of other things. Make sure you call them today at 1-866-938-8469 to get signed up and let them know Ron Ripple sent you. (I’m trying to get my name out to just about everyone)
The one thing I’m excited about is the ability to listen & watch Kyle Busch whine while he’s crossing the finish line. As we all know, my picks are the kind most bookies hate… Hopefully Kyle Busch reads this post before he gets out there on the track so that when he’s giving his post race interview he can start out by saying… “I’d like to thank the infamous RON RIPPLE for telling everyone I was going to win, it seems as if he’s got some kind of psychic ability to KNOW who wins.” Unfortunately we all know this won’t happen, but I’ll probably get a call from the goofy kid thanking me OFF camera. I wouldn’t want to steal the spot light anyways!
Who do you think is going to win this weekend? Be sure to check back after the race as we’ll be giving away the gas cards next week. Also I have some great opportunities in the works so also check back as I’ll be revealing this next week as well..
