That’s an old poster on our studio wall, from the year that we had a great Daytona 500 party at Bear’s. It was a great memory, as the place was packed, and there were some crazy racing games for prizes. There are a lot of things in the 98Rocks studio, that takes us back to a certain space in time, over the past (almost) 35 years. That party at Bear’s, though, was a blast! Bear’s opened on Sunday, just for the occasion. Donnie Dodson’s favorite beer (Bud Light), was the main sponsor of the party. Donnie wrote a tribute to his favorite beer. The crowds always sing along with “Bud Light Night”, when Donnie & WTW are playing on the stages in the ArkLaTex. I’m ready for some NASCAR racing, though! The Daytona 500 will be February 18th. Between now and the Daytona 500, there are practices this weekend, the February 11th NASCAR Clash race, the February 15th NASCAR Dual races and more, to get us race fans fired up for the Daytona 500. So. Now, that we’ve passed New Years, ‘Bama winning the college football championship, Philly winning the big game & the area Mardi Gras parades, it’s time for … SPEED! I’ll be ready by April, to take the Tom’sMaHaul motorhome back to Texas Motor Speedway for their first NASCAR weekend of the year. Locally, there will, certainly, be great racing this year at Boothill Speedway (just west of Shreveport) & other area tracks.
