Welcome to “Baby You Can Drive My Car” a new feature at Joy Daniels’ blog that shines the spotlight on the hot men who make engines race – cars’ and womens’ alike!
There no lack of sexy among NASCAR drivers but it’s been hard to find shirtless photos of them – aside from Carl Edwards, who I featured in this post. (Perhaps the fact that they’re required to wear a fire-retardant suit to protect them from burns makes them a bit reluctant to strip down anywhere near the track!)
But I was not to be defeated and after some diligent searching uncovered an uncovered photo of one of this well-known and popular NASCAR driver: Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Apologies for the poor quality photo – it clearly does not do justice to the man!)
Dale Jr. and the NASCAR Sprint Cup
Dale Jr. drives # 88 for AMP Energy.U.S. National Guard in the Sprint Cup series and # 5 and #7 for his own team, JR motorsports, in the Nationwide Series. As of today, Dale is in ninth place in the 2011 Sprint Cup series. In the nine years he’s been in the Sprint Cup, he’s won 18 races but never the Cup itself.
The Earnhardt family is all over racing. Dale’s father was of course, the late great NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Sr. His grand-daddies were racer Ralph Earnhardt and stock car fabricator Robert Ge. His brother and nephew also race and his stepmother was the first woman to own a NASCAR team. (She’s part owner of Earnhardt-Ganassi racing).
No question about what they talk about over dinner at Thanksgiving!
This One’s for the Boys (and Girls!)
My writing buddy and creativity guru Patrick Ross noted that my new website is heavy on half-naked men. (Personally, I think it’s pretty evenly divided between half- and fully-naked men, but who am I to argue with a fan). This week I promised to toss in a little something for those romance and/or NASCAR fans who prefer curves – and not just on the road.
Meet Danica Patrick, a driver who races in the IndyCar series and NASCAR’s Nationwide series. In 2008, Danica became the first woman to win an IndyCar race. She placed 3rd in the 2009 Indianapolis 500, a personal best for her at that track and the best finish by a woman in that race’s history. She joined the NASCAR nationwide series last year.
Did I mention that she’s also a model?
