#TBT – NASCAR’s All Star Race

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. We’re doing a special edition this week since there are some all stars who need to get their game on and go play (or in this case, race).

2007

The Busch brothers were racing each other towards the end of the race when disaster struck and they crashed into each other. If I remember correctly from a segment on Race Hub last season, Kurt still isn’t thrilled about it – and it was 10 years later (although he missed out on $1 million thanks to a wreck with his brother, so can you blame him?). Here’s some footage of the wreck.

 

2017

This was Dale Earnhardt Jr’s final All Star Race. In it, Matt Kenseth’s car blew up and Kyle Busch took home the win. Here’s some sound bites from it.

#TBT – ISM Raceway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. We’re staying in the desert this week with ISM Raceway.

November 2017

From a fire in the SAFER barriers to Matt Kenseth’s final win, last year’s November race was eventful to say the least. Here’s the Radioactive from that race.

 

This video also shows highlights from one NASCAR fan’s day at the same November race, some of which didn’t get TV coverage.

Retired Odd 6

Retired Odd 6 – Matt Kenseth

Remember 30 Odd 6 during the season, which focused on the 30th driver in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series? This is the same idea, only for retiring drivers instead. Next up, someone known for his dry humor.

Name: Matt Kenseth

Age: 45

Hometown: Cambridge, WI

Team: Joe Gibbs Racing

Odd 6

  1. Sort of a no-brainer since he’s from Wisconsin, but his favorite NFL team is the Green Bay Packers. He even got to swap helmets with Brett Favre in 2003.
  2. He and his wife wrote a book called Matt Kenseth’s Race Against Bullying, which helps teach kids on what to do if they’re faced with bullying.
  3. His cats are featured every year in a “Pit Road Pets” calendar that benefits Greg Biffle’s foundation.
  4. Outside of the car, he likes motorcycles, fantasy football, mountain biking, skiing, cycling, snowmobiling, hunting and reading.
  5. Thinking of his love of reading, he was featured on a “READ” poster for the American Library Association
  6. He has four kids – Ross, Kaylin, Grace and Clara. You may know Ross, who made his Xfinity Series debut in 2015, through his own auto racing career.
