As the season is quickly approaching,
I have revamped/revived my Nascar LJ
communities and hope to gain some new
members. Please join if you'd like!

nascars_sexiest is a yearly competition to find the hottest driver in Nascar. You vote for the drivers throughout the contest, and at the end I'll be making banners for the winning drivers for your userinfo. Come join us! Voting starts at 50 members, and JON IS IN THE RUNNING! :D

casey_mears is a community for Casey/Hendricks fans to talk Mears. He doesn't have to be "your driver." So, if you root for him at all, we'd love to have you!

nascarljaddme is a place for Nascar fans on livejournal to find each other, connect, and talk. I know I post a lot about the sport during the season (especially the Chase) and I love to have my LJ friends weigh in. Come get more Nascar fans on your friends list!

Like I said, the season is upon us, so please consider joining up. The more the merrier!!

I know Cara is an open wheel charity but Nascar drivers have been supporting this. If you want one there is a link to the site. These are for charity and is sponsored by Toyota. Pass this on to anyone you think will be interested.

Haha, this is a good story... [03 Apr 2005|09:32pm]

[ mood | exhausted ]

That same morning, Jon Wood was feeling wound up real tight, and to kill some time before he had to baseline the truck again, he hopped into a passenger car and began racing a crewman in another vehicle around the old track.

Sammie Yarborough was not amused. He is Cale's cousin, and he is the longtime track superintendent at Darlington. He wears a hat like Roush's, and he can be as mean as a rattlesnake, especially when someone sets a wheel on his track without his permission.

Wood and the crewman were pulled over on the front stretch and quickly surrounded by security vehicles. They might have gotten off with a withering scolding, but Yarborough was at full rage, and his attitude evoked a wise-ass comment from the crewman, who, taking note of the fact that Darlington used to have two major NASCAR races a year but now only has one, said, "No wonder NASCAR took a race away from you guys."

So it was off to the Darlington jail for Wood and the crewman, facing formal charges of reckless driving—a crime committed on the very asphalt of the storied track itself. Sam Belnavis, Roush's diversity director, had to drive downtown with $700 in cash to bail them out. By the time they all got back to the track around noon, the test was well under way, and the trucks had long since been set up by another Roush driver, Carl Edwards.

Wood is a respectful young man—he's a Wood Brothers offspring, after all—and he was terribly embarrassed by the incident but retained enough humor to quip, "Of all the stupid things I've done in my life, I can't believe I got caught for that."


I just love that kid.

Okay, and it's from this article, which is mainly about Todd Kluever and the Gong Show:

Found an short interview Interview Link

Jon Wood, driver of the No. 47 Clorox Ford, took a couple of minutes to talk about his move from the Craftsman Truck Series last year to the Busch Series this year. Wood finished 12th in Saturday's Pepsi 300.

IRN: Last year we talked to you about going from the Craftsman Truck Series to the Busch Series. You said that Jack Roush was going to loan you out to another team and your hope would be -- to go from that into the No. 6 Cup car when Mark Martin retires. Are you still thinking along those lines?

Jon Wood: "I don't know, I still think that Roush Racing has some kind of a plan. I know that I have a two year deal here with this team -- and I'm more than excited about this race team. I really didn't know what to expect going into the Busch Series, but I have high expectations now about how we perform but it's starting to show every week. It's a top-notch race team that hasn't had a whole lot of opportunities."

IRN: Are you where you want to be at this point?

Jon Wood: "Yeah, we're qualifying in the top-5 and top-10 every week and doing really well, we just need to keep our stuff together during the races and finish well."

IRN: I talked to your dad at the end of last year and he indicated at that time -- that possibly you would run a Cup car at Matinsville -- is that still in the plans?

Jon Wood: "It was in the plans but it would be really hard to do that in the fall race. I think in the spring race -- it got here before we knew it and the fall race -- we're in Memphis. So that's probably out for this year."

Nashville [27 Mar 2005|04:09am]

I am home from Nashville and wow. They finally have Jon's shirts in at the merch. trailers so make sure to get one (they also have car decals stickers and hats). I will post a picture of it but minus the autograph of course :) . Jon saw me on the way to qualifying and stopped to sign the ticket and shirt. He was pretty shocked to see me since he knew I went to mostly to IRL races since I was working for an IRL team. I told it was an off weekend and came down to see the race. He hadn't seen the shirts until he saw me wearing mine. Later, I went back to the trailer to get a freq list and meet Jon's mom! She is a sweetheart. I see where her son gets his charm. She was buying stuff for everyone back home. And he looks a lot like her too. Jon was running as fast as Reed when that accident happen. I was so mad and it was my friend that hit him too. They thought he would go a lap down but thank god for a caution to save him for the most part. He was running so good when he was 2nd and I believe he lead that one lap which was cool. But he would of had a top 5 if it wasn't for that accident for sure. I hope he does good at Bristol.

Hello from the moderator of this community. This is my new LJ name...used to be breezybird.

Sorry about how the community is...well...lacking lately. I will work on updating it over the next week or so. I'll add a background, change some of the interests, and hopefully we'll get this going again.

If someone knows how to make a banner to advertise the community, that would be great. ;)

Let me know if you have any ideas! :D

Posted that he won yesterday but heres a little more info [02 May 2004|08:59am]

Nextel Cup veteran Ken Schrader held off Busch Series rookie Clint Bowyer to win Saturday's King Taco 200 at California Speedway. Schrader, who won by 0.259 seconds following a five-lap shootout, now has three NASCAR Grand National Division, West series, wins and three second-place finishes in seven races at California. Bowyer, who is sharing driving duties with Kevin Harvick in Richard Childress Racing's #21 Chevrolet this season, started from the pole and was making his first series start. Scott Lynch was third, Scott Gaylord and Kevin Conway completed the top five.

Jon Wood's Diary [01 Aug 2003|07:58am]

Roush Driver Diary: Jon Wood
Wednesday, July 30, 2003

Hey everybody,

We’ve got a big weekend ahead of us. We leave for Indianapolis on Thursday afternoon. I will be at Ford Fan Appreciation Day that evening to sign autographs and help unveil the new 2004 Ford F-150. Then we have a one-day show at Indianapolis Raceway Park on Friday. It’s always a long day to practice, qualify and race all on the same day, but it’s also nice to race on Friday night and still have your whole weekend off. I haven’t decided yet if I will go back to Charlotte on Saturday, or if I’ll stick around Indy and watch the Winston Cup race on Sunday.

We moved up to sixth place in the point standings after Michigan. Now we’re only 14 points out of fifth place, so we’re closing in on the top five. The sixth place finish at Michigan was a little disappointing because I think we could have finished a little better. Nobody could touch Brendan (Gaughan), but we could have been in the top five. I got together with the guys we were racing there a little bit at the end. Someone got up into me coming off turn two, and I don’t know if I crunched the fender in or what, but it got terrible after that. We were contenders all day long. We just need to keep finishing the way we have been and we’ll be in the hunt for the points at the end of the year.

I better get going since I still have laundry and packing to do before I leave for Indy. I spent the early part of the week in Virginia so I haven’t been home much to get anything done since we got back from Michigan.

I’ll talk to you again next week. Have a great weekend and enjoy the racing from Indy!
