Welcome to Loose Lugs - a home for your reading pleasure of NASCAR fan fiction on the world wide web. Discerning tastes such as yours will find a bevy of delectable morsels upon which you may dine.
"Why 'Loose Lugs'" you ask? Well, to begin with, we're all a little off our rocker arms to read and write stories based on racecar drivers! How many times have you heard a driver shout "I've got a vibration!"? And what's usually the cause of said vibration? Yep, loose lugs. Besides, it's sorta cool to call each other 'lugnut'.
Please, take a moment and leave the authors feedback - even if it's just a quick 'like it a lot! post more soon'. They aren't paid to write or post here, so the least we can give them is a little feedback.
Enjoy the Shoutbox too. Use it as a chatroom if you like. It's always open! But remember: if you can't take it, don't dish it out.
Love, peace and rearend grease...
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
As of today, a few days short of January 1, 2015, we are a mere EIGHT SUNDAYS away from the Daytona 500! I don't know about y'all, but I'm sick of football (college and pro). And basketball (college and pro). And hockey. And the World Series Of Poker. I want my NASCAR, baby!
It's during the off-season that Loose Lugs - as well as the other NASCAR-centric fanfiction sites - sees a dip in both new stories and readers. How can we boost the membership here at LL but keep the quality aspect that we pride ourselves in offering? We're open for suggestions.
Things have been deathly quiet in this neck of the woods lately - so quiet in fact, that, as Head Lugnut In Charge, I've been doing some heavy housecleaning, as it were.
Seems we had a b0t get stuck in our wheel and it jammed the air gun on more than one author's page; took care of that problem, just to find out we haven't had any new stories or updates posted since the All-Star Race!
OH! THE HUMANITY!!
I am making it my number one New Year's Resolution - to get Loose Lugs out there in the NASCAR fanfiction reading public's eye. What do you think about a Twitter account? If there was one for Loose Lugs, would you follow it for the updates? We could maybe even perhaps gang up on the writer(s) we like and bombard them with PLEASE WRITE MOAR Tweets! Maybe even drag a few of those who've hung up their tablets and laptops out of retirement and come play with us again!
As always, our door is open and we take your comments seriously. Let us know what you think about the Twitter account - or if you have a completely different idea altogether, fill us in!
So, in the time between the gaudy crystal ball falling off the building in NYC's Times Square and when they fire up the engines for Speedweeks 2015 down in Daytona, we'll be seeing you (hopefully) in all the old familiar places!
Love, peace, and rearend grease...

WOO HOO!! I'm seeing people in the Shout Box! Sorry about the spam shit - I'm in here cleaning it out now and installing new filter. I hate that FFN is closing shop - but we're still open!

Yep, I just deleted a spam review. Hate those things.
11/22/15 08:35 pm
Anyone else dealing with spam reviews?

Finally updated some stories on here. Hope everyone enjoys. During this off season, my goal is to throw myself back into my writing.

I am moving all of my stories over from FFN...as soon as I have that done I will update them.

Beth, mine is uploading okay. I just pasted the text into the box though. I don't know if uploading them from files makes a difference or not.

Anyone else having trouble uploading stories? The page is SUPER buggy and won't let me upload.
