Martin Truex Jr. was removed from the Chase for the Championship and Ryan Newman was added. That's the first time in the 10 years of the Chase that NASCAR has dropped a driver who qualified for the Chase.
NASCAR fined Michael Waltrip Racing a record $300,000 along with issuing penalties to all three MWR drivers - Clint Bowyer, Brian Vickers and Martin Truex Jr. NASCAR also placed the crew chiefs for all three drivers on probation. NASCAR also indefinitely suspended the team's general manager.
Michael Waltrip Racing did a series of maneuvers to lose positions to help Truex make the Chase. NASCAR determined what MWR did was against the integrity of the sport and sense of fair play and thus issued the major penalties Monday night.
I think it's safe to say, "Everybody hates change." Change can be anything from your favorite ice cream flavor no longer being available to the legendary George Jones no longer being with us and passing just weeks before an Upstate appearance.
It's also the little things that are really "no big deal," but make you realize "change" is always certain.
For years when I wanted pizza for supper, I went to the same pizza shop. I could always count on Dennis or Curtis to be there....and sometimes both of them. Dennis was an ol' rock and roller who many times served as Curtis's straight man. Curtis was full of laughs anytime I stopped in including turning off the lights and locking the doors, wearing a Halloween Costume and pranking me, peering around corners and more.
I realize there is going to be turnover in the restaurant business. In the past two visits over the past month I didn't see either Dennis or Curtis or even any familiar employee faces. I'm guessing they sold the franchaise.
Pizza is dough, sauce, toppings, and an oven...but the relationships you have with your customers is what keeps bringing them back. I'll miss the laughs a couple of times a month, but it makes me know that giving one hundred percent to a customer makes a difference. I know Dennis and Curtis had bad days over the years, but it never showed. Wherever they are, we can wish them the best and take a page from their book.
Very simple post today. Get well Randy Travis.
....try doing this!
I'm not sure why, but earlier today "Full Service" Gas Stations crossed my mind. I guess I am showing my age a little, but I wondered if there were any still in operation. I remember when I first started driving growing up in Tryon stopping at the local Esso station. The attendant came out and you either said how much gas you wanted, or "fill 'er up." Plus, they checked your oil and washed your windshield all for the price of the gas. Even though you may have been loyal to your local station for more complicated repairs that were more expensive, that kind of service was customary everywhere.
Today, we pump our own gas. We're lucky if there is rain water in the windshield washer tub. Even luckier if there is a windshield washing tool and paper towels if you want to check your oil.
Things change fast in life, but still we live in the greatest nation in the world. Happy 4th y'all!

Craig Morgan used his EMT Training Sunday to assist worker at the crash site of a Semi. There's no question in my mind that Craig might be the only Country Star that would do that. Good Guy.
