Damar Hamlin’s collapse sparks NASCAR concerns, chili bowl cheerleader, Lightning Strikes Dale Jr. team. Suarez Birthday – OutKick

The NFL common season is over, school soccer has wrapped up tonight, and I spent eight hours yesterday watching a NASCAR Daytona 500 business each 5 minutes on FOX.

This, of us, is when racing season is nearly right here.

However, after all, not right here but. We nonetheless have a couple of Blended drink remaining out of season (Shout out to all these Dry January braves this month.) So we’ll preserve scraping the underside of the keg till our nails flip to mud!

And by the underside of the keg I imply… Ryan Newman?

Ryan Newman!

The Ol’ Rocket Man himself trended fairly large final Monday for the unsuitable β€” but in addition proper β€” causes, so we’ll get to him in a second.

We’ll even be speaking Mom Nature beginning in 2023 with BANG at JR Motorsports, Tyler Reddick and his lady trying out the Broncos’ season finale, Daniel Suarez celebrating a birthday, and sure, the Chili Bowl!

4 Tires and Two Scuff Goodyears (we’re not losing sticker tires right this moment), Monday Morning Pit-Cease – “For the love of God, is that this season over but?” Version – is GO!

Damar Hamlin’s collapse invalidates Ryan Newman’s NASCAR recollections

I hate to do that, as a result of, yeah, I will admit I am bored with this story at this level.

However, that is the primary time we have spoken for the reason that cardiac arrest that Damar Hamlin suffered final Monday night time throughout the Payments-Bengals recreation, so I’ve to a minimum of contact on it.

One of many first issues I considered because it occurred was Ryan Newman’s horrific crash within the 2020 Daytona 500. I used to be on the monitor that day, and the whole lot I noticed Monday night time was eerily comparable.

The FOX broadcast, just like the ESPN broadcast, had no thought what to do. They did not present us Newman, and ESPN–and couldn’t–show us Hamlin. That is after I knew one thing was unsuitable.

It took what appeared like endlessly to chop Newman out of his automobile, get him into the ambulance and throughout the road to the hospital. Then I waited days for solutions. At one level, let’s be trustworthy right here, you thought he was gone.

I do not bear in mind a second throughout a sporting occasion when these ideas entered my thoughts till Damar Hamlin fell final week. Apparently, I used to be not alone.

Like I stated earlier, Newman takes to Twitter virtually instantly.

Newman survived, and so did Hamlin. Thank God for each.

Let’s not Lower it off with this closure once more.

Lightning strikes Dale Earnhardt Jr. NASCAR workforce

Properly, now that the damaging stuff is out of the way in which, let’s discuss lightning!

How about that video that has now gone viral hitting JR Motorsports’ truck (Dale Jr.’s Xfinity Staff) automobile park.

yuza. Rising up in Florida, you have been taught to be afraid of lightning. There are only a few issues you do not mess with, and lightning is close to the highest of the checklist.

If there was the slightest thunder within the sky, my spouse would not come out. I cannot do this. The sky could possibly be fully clear with one small darkish cloud, and we would sit inside for an hour till it cleared up.

We will do alligators, leopards, snakes and sharks right here, however not lightning. That is the place we draw the road.

And truthfully, are you able to blame us? Take a look at these movies! Need that gap by you attempting to stroll the canine? I don’t suppose so.

Christopher Bell is not among the NASCAR stars at this year's Chilean Bowl.
No Christopher Bell on this yr’s Chili Bowl.

We have come to the Chili Bowl a part of the offseason

Ah sure, it is lastly Chili Bowl week. The annual week that largely marks the tip of the season and the start of the motorsports yr.

The week-long midget automobile occasion in Tulsa has over 370 entries this yr, together with a few NASCAR guys. Shockingly, no Kyle Larson and Christopher Bell -Two Chili Bowl vets – are battling it out, however Alex Bowman and Chase Briscoe give it a attempt.

Different names chances are you’ll acknowledge embody JJ Yeley, Josh Bilicki, and Carson Hocevar (Vans).

Oh yeah, former Oklahoma Sooners cheerleader Taylor Reimer, who made midget automobile historical past final yr when she grew to become the primary feminine driver to win a nationwide midget race, will even be within the area after ending eleventh final yr.

Boomer sooner!

Tyler Reddick takes on the horrible Bronco persona, Russell Wilson

A few fast notes on our approach out…

Weeks after Ross Chastain was on the Chargers area Recreation with Miss North CarolinaTyler Reddick and his girlfriend (spouse? I do not know!) Alexa De Leon discovered themselves on the sidelines at one other Chargers recreation – this time in Denver.

I am unable to think about spending a Sunday watching Russell Wilson, however hey, to each certainly one of us.

Anyway, Riddick was clearly there for the soccer, whereas his spouse was simply attempting to catch a sneak peak at Wilson’s spouse, Ciara.

Enjoyable reality, by the way in which, on these two birds. Apparently, that they had a deal in place in 2019 that Tyler might identify their first baby if he received the Xfinity Championship, which he did.

Born the next January, Child Beau Reddick is completely a STUD. What a rattling identify.

Daniel Suarez turned 31 on the finish of the week

Lastly, we will not get out of right here with out wishing NASCAR’s favourite amigo, Daniel Suarez, a cheerful thirty first birthday.

It has been a large season for Suarez, who obtained engaged to Julia Pique in November, Engaged with Ross Chastain in Decemberand attended Bubba Wallace’s star-studded New Yr’s Eve marriage ceremony.

Have a rattling trip, Danny!

Properly, that is all I’ve for right this moment. I really feel like we did our greatest resulting from the truth that actually nothing occurs.

Maintain your claps!

Anyway, we’re simply right here, women and gents. The Rolex is 2 weeks away, adopted by the Busch Gentle (yum) Conflict in California (ew) and one thing referred to as the Daytona 500.
