Propped up on the back of a ’76 Lincoln. My parents made me into the car guy I am today.
Bubba Wallace us picking up where Wendell Scott left off in the 70’s. Just read this and thought it would be great to share that there is a new face emerging for the Richard Petty team for the 2018 season.
In the words of the most profound voice in motorsports “Momma, I wanna go fast! ” Thank you Ricky Bobby.
Great article by the Bleacher Report
First off, great story HBO and Bryant Gumbel. HBO did a Real Sports segment on Lewis Hamilton touching on his racimg career and the adversity he faced being the first African American in the sport of F1. What was also discussed in this interview segment was the younger Hamilton brother that not too many people hear about.
Nicolas Hamilton is Lewis’ younger brother. Very supportive, but in the shadows of his very talented and successful older brother, Nicolas has his own story that deserves some light shed upon it. Born premature and diagnosed with Cerebal Palsy, I’m sure it was difficult to follow in someone’s footsteps, but Nicolas seems to be taking it in stride. Very successful at online racing he was encouraged by his older brother to give actual racing a go. Given Nicolas disability he is overcoming the odds and is now competing as a professional race car driver. The sport of car racing is challenging, and having to heart and stones to compete is something to admire.
Nicolas we will keep an eye out for you.

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of getting my hands a little dirty and tackling a rear brake and rotor job on the Honda Crosstour. Very simple job…when everything goes smoothly. I was able to knock out the driver side in about 25 minutes, taking my time and taking pictures of the process. The passenger side is an entirely different story full of stripped bolt and screw heads. Thanks to Autozone for have new caliper bolts and guide pins in stock.
Doing the job myself, I was able to save a ton of money over stealership cost. Last I checked, they were charging a discounted price of $230 to do the front brakes and resurface the rotors. I ordered a new brake and rotor kit on Amazon for $100 from R1 Concepts. The new kit included both front and rear rotors and ceramic brakes. I only had to pick up some new brake fluid and grease for the calipers and rotors to keep the squealing away.
Now on to the pics:
All-in-all not a bad day. Next week…I’ll tackle the fronts.
