Running Antelope Rides Again!

My amazingly kickass freelance writer of a wife chalked up another cover story this month, this time about the living legend of NASCAR, Jeff Gordon…

The modern NASCAR would never have become the modern NASCAR if it hadn't been for this guy, who totally changed this sport into a Tier 1 draw.

Of course, she interviewed him back in the summer during a weekend event. Which just so happened to be the same weekend as the Brickyard 400. At Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As in, Indy. THE Indy.

And knowing how much I follow and enjoy NASCAR…did she invite me to go along on this one? That would be a big neg-a-tory, good buddy. Not that I’m bitter or anything about it.

Enough of my sob story…there are some pretty sweet giveaways attached to this. First, a lasagna recipe from Jeff’s mom, Carol, so you too can enjoy the pasta of champions.

Second, there’s a giveaway contest. Up for grabs?

  • Grand prize: A 1:24 scale fantasy die cast car from the Jeff Gordon Foundation
  • Runner-up prize: Pit Stop in a Southern Kitchen, a recipe book authored by Martha Earnhardt (wife of Ralph, mother of Dale, and grandmother of Dale, Jr.) and Carol Gordon Bickford (Jeff’s mom)

As always, you gotta be in it to win it, so enter before 2.28.2009 if you want to be in the running.
