Damar Hamlin’s collapse sparks NASCAR concerns, chili bowl cheerleader, Lightning Strikes Dale Jr. team. Suarez Birthday – OutKick

The NFL common season is over, school soccer has wrapped up tonight, and I spent eight hours yesterday watching a NASCAR Daytona 500 industrial each 5 minutes on FOX.

This, of us, is when you realize racing season is nearly right here.

However, after all, not right here but. We nonetheless have a number of Blended drink remaining out of season (Shout out to all these Dry January braves this month.) So we’ll preserve scraping the underside of the keg till our nails flip to mud!

And by the underside of the keg I imply… Ryan Newman?

Ryan Newman!

The Ol’ Rocket Man himself trended fairly massive final Monday for the improper — but additionally proper — causes, so we’ll get to him in a second.

We’ll even be speaking Mom Nature beginning in 2023 with BANG at JR Motorsports, Tyler Reddick and his woman testing the Broncos’ season finale, Daniel Suarez celebrating a birthday, and sure, the Chili Bowl!

Damar Hamlin’s collapse invalidates Ryan Newman’s NASCAR recollections

I hate to do that, as a result of, yeah, I will admit I am uninterested in this story at this level.

However, that is the primary time we have spoken because the cardiac arrest that Damar Hamlin suffered final Monday evening throughout the Payments-Bengals sport, so I’ve to no less than contact on it.

One of many first issues I considered because it occurred was Ryan Newman’s horrific crash within the 2020 Daytona 500. I used to be on the monitor that day, and every thing I noticed Monday evening was eerily related.

The FOX broadcast, just like the ESPN broadcast, had no concept what to do. They did not present us Newman, and ESPN–and couldn’t–show us Hamlin. That is after I knew one thing was improper.

It took what appeared like ceaselessly to chop Newman out of his automotive, get him into the ambulance and throughout the road to the hospital. Then I waited days for solutions. At one level, let’s be trustworthy right here, you thought he was gone.

I do not keep in mind a second throughout a sporting occasion when these ideas entered my thoughts till Damar Hamlin fell final week. Apparently, I used to be not alone.

Like I stated earlier, Newman takes to Twitter virtually instantly.

Newman survived, and so did Hamlin. Thank God for each.

Let’s not Reduce it off with this closure once more.

Lightning strikes Dale Earnhardt Jr. NASCAR workforce

Properly, now that the harmful stuff is out of the best way, let’s speak lightning!

How about that video that has now gone viral hitting JR Motorsports’ truck (Dale Jr.’s Xfinity Workforce) automotive park.

yuza. Rising up in Florida, you had been taught to be afraid of lightning. There are only a few issues you do not mess with, and lightning is close to the highest of the checklist.

If there was the slightest thunder within the sky, my spouse would not come out. I cannot do this. The sky might be utterly clear with one small darkish cloud, and we might sit inside for an hour till it cleared up.

We will do alligators, leopards, snakes and sharks right here, however not lightning. That is the place we draw the road.

And actually, are you able to blame us? Have a look at these movies! Need that gap by way of you attempting to stroll the canine? I don’t suppose so.
