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...
And The Chase for the 2014 NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP is ON!
Is everyone sick to death yet from all the NASCAR 'media' with their prognosticating and grandstanding on who they think will/should/won't be in the final 4 come Miami-Homestead in November like we are? It's okay - you don't have to raise your hands. We know. We feel your pain.
Keselowski 4 wins
Gordon 3 wins
Johnson 3 wins
Earnhardt 3 wins
Logano 3 wins
Harvick 2 wins
Edwards 2 wins
Kyle Busch 1 win
Denny Hamlin 1 win
Kurt Busch 1 win
Kasey Kahne 1 win
Aric Almirola 1 win
A.J. Allmendinger 1 win
Matt Kenseth - 0 wins, in on Top 16 points
Greg Biffle - 0 wins, in on Top 16 points
Ryan Newman - 0 wins, in on Top 16 points

First 3 races is called the Challenger Bracket:
Chicago, New Hampshire and Dover.
The 4 lowest finishing 'Chasers' are eliminated. Leaving 12.
Second 3 races is called the Contender Bracket:
Kansas, Charlotte and Talladega.
The 4 lowest finishing 'Chasers' are eliminated. Leaving 8.
Third 3 races is called the Eliminator Bracket:
Martinsville, Texas and Phoenix.
The 4 lowest finising 'Chasers' are eliminated. Leaving 4.
Final race, Miami-Homestead is the Championship Race.
This one is a bit different; no points for leading a lap, the most, previous wins, etc. All points are wiped for the remaining 4 Chasers. Whoever finishes the best of the 4 is the champion. They could all 4 finish 37, 38, 39 and 40th, but the 37th place would win. Weird, huh.
Lots of speculation that the teams of Allmindinger and Almirola are 'sure thing' first round go-homers... but not all of us at Loose Lugs believe that line. It can just as easily be say, Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Joey Logano and Kasey Kahne licking their wounds after Dover. You. Just. Don't. Know. Karma has a lot to do with it. Oh, and luck. Lots of luck. Good or bad, but luck, too.
Are there drivers who are IN the Chase that surprise you? Who were you surprised to see NOT in the Chase? Do you think this is the year for a first time Cup Champion, or a repeat offender?
Who were you hoping to see have better results this season? Kyle Larson? Danica Patrick? Matt Kenseth?
Here's hoping the Playoffs are a great boost for NASCAR, the drivers and the fans!
Until next time,
Love, peace and taco grease -
From the little office way in the back corner here at Loose Lugs, we are sending glad tidings to you and your families and wish every one a
and we look forward to kicking this joint into overdrive in 2014.

I'm beyond thrilled that Brian Vickers won yesterday. To say that it's been a long time coming is an understatement. Hopefully he'll have a full time ride next year. :)
