JD's Blog, a place where sight and sound have no meaning, where time and space are illusions, and where a DJ posts his slightly off-kilter take on this, that, and the other thing.
 
I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to get paid to do it. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I play several musical instruments and write books for fun. And I'm a huge fan of the Philly teams: the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers.

Race Season Is On (And I Like It)

by JD posted Feb 24 2014 4:34PM
Any race fans out there? How about that Daytona 500. I'm a Junior fan, so I thought it was pretty awesome. But honestly, regardless of who wins, the Daytona 500 is usually pretty exciting. They don't call it the Great American Race for nothing, amirite?! 

The 500 is different in that it's considered NASCAR's equivalent to the Super Bowl, yet it's the first race of the season. Typically, whoever wins the 500 will carry a good head of steam into the season and as often as not that carries all the way through to the Chase. Consider this: Jimmie Johnson won the 500 in 2006 and 2013 and went on to win the championship both years. So for someone who is a Dale Jr. fan, the possibility that this could be a championship year for him is an exciting one indeed. 

So enjoy, race fans. Another season has begun. NASCAR has the shortest off season of any major professional American sport, and that is a good thing. Cheers.
