As the NASCAR Busch Series heads to Gateway International Raceway (the NASCAR track closest in proximity to the corporate home of Anheuser-Busch) for a Saturday, May 10 race, this is one of the extremely rare weekends without a NASCAR Winston Cup race. With no Winston Cup race on the calendar, we offer - ahem, purely as a public service of course - some suggestions for reading material to fill any void from the lack of live racing action on Sunday.
"The Hottest Driver in America's Biggest Sport"
That's the headline on the cover of the June 2003 issue of Men's Journal Magazine. Dale Earnhardt Jr. is the coverboy, smirking confidently on the front of the first-ever "Sports Issue" of Men's Journal. The June issue, which includes a lengthy feature story about Dale Jr., is expected to hit newsstands this week.
Drivin' and Singin'
You know summer is almost here, so get the convertible out of the garage and dust off those old 8-tracks! Have you ever wondered what vehicles Driver No. 8 rates as the best street cars in the world? (Hint: at least two are classic Chevrolets.) Or maybe you can't go another week without knowing what music-lovin' Dale Jr. lists as his eight favorite CDs for driving? (Hint from Junior: "if you don't like Pink Floyd, get out of the car.") Find the answers to those questions and more in the current June 2003 edition of Playboy Magazine. (Hint for the youngsters: 8-tracks are not where the red Budweiser No. 8 car races at amazing speeds... Although, if you're too young to remember 8-tracks, you may not be old enough to read Playboy. Now go to your room...)
