Yesterday was our second rainout in a row for the Fast Friday Series at Seekonk Speedway.
What this means for the OTR/DCW Motorsports team is that we only have 7 races now in Dj's chase for the championship, He is currently in 2nd place in the points. With him 16 points out of 1st from here on out he needs to concentrate on finishing ahead of the points leader each week . While winning is great he cannot afford to chance wrecking his equipment going for the win if he is going to…Continue

I would like to start off this week's blog by apologizing for not putting up blogs the last few weeks. I have been busy busy. Today was my Dad's birthday. Lets just say hes at a point where he stops counting his age. Happy Birthday Dad! Your the best father I could ask for. Now lets talk a bit about poker. This week I am going to discuss my new found addiction to HORSE, the games of HORSE, and which are my favorites!
With 5 races done and one rain-out, there are 10 regular season points races left, so i figured an update was in order.
Our rookie driver Hans in the 02 car seems to be unable to catch a break, of the 5 weeks run he has had 2 good qualifying runs where he finished 3rd and 2nd. Other than that he has been wrecked or spun-out by other drivers because they see a rookie and don't give him the respect he deserves on the track, while a few may have been due to his own mistakes, most were…Continue

It's been an incredible World Series of Poker leading up to the 2012 Main Event. I've watched several hours on the live WSOP stream and almost all have been in the various forms of mixed games. The final tables have been littered with some of the most recognized pros in the world. David Tuchman (@TuckonSports on Twitter) has done an incredible job announcing and interviewing, talking strategy with tons of the pros and old timers. All the events have been archived for…Continue
As I get older, I find myself thinking of the past more and more. Not just a reminiscent jaunt through the good times, but a sincere view of all the decisions that were the vehicle of my journey through this life. What major events changed my life course? I suppose the true life changers can be summed up by loss or gain. As a child I lost an older brother, he drowned at the age of 13. I know that it drastically affected our family as a whole and my parents as a pair. The process of…Continue

It was a great night at the track, once again Dj was the fastest car in practice driving the 22 and Hans was very happy with his car.
in qualifing Dj started 7th and was able to 2nd by lap 6 of the 8 laps but did not have enough time to catch the leader,in Hans qualifier he started 2nd but was spun on lap one and then got into a wreck under caution to end his race.
In the main Hans was starting 3rd and Dj was starting 10th in the field of 17 cars in the 20 lap main. On lap one…Continue

Please understand that these ‘observations’ are from my own personal experiences playing on-line poker for over 10+ years and are in no way intended to disrespect anyone. These are just some things I noticed throughout the years:
I've been looking into the DNS-changer worm that's scheduled to hit on Monday for Gellin. The bottom line is probably most people dont need to worry.
