"I believe anybody who tells you he is unbiased is a liar. Being human gives you bias, and you can't avoid that. The best you can ever hope to be is fair."

More to Life

By Carol Einarsson | 12/03/2013
Some of you may know I'm a Doctor Who fan. For those who aren't, or are unfamiliar with the BBC series, The Doctor can travel anywhere in space and time (and usually does so to save our world or another from some form of nefarious aliens) in his time machine known as the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space). Here's your first tie-in, but not the last or most significant - TARDIS is a six letter acronym like NASCAR. See, now you want to keep reading, don't you?

So recently, someone asked me if I could go anywhere in space and time, where would it be? Pondering that possibility, some ideas came to mind that I'd never before considered. Given that I have no "space" desires except perhaps the moon, my list covers Bible times to NASCAR.

Here we are, then, the first week of the off-season. It doesn't usually feel like it's really over until after the banquet, but this year, I'm feeling it right away. So many other things I enjoy in life that sometimes get put on the back burner between February and November are suddenly on the calendar. What? There's more to life than racing? Why yes there is! I'm glad you asked!

I'm developing a new column that will be called "More to Life". You may or may not find it listed on Jayski's page because it may or may not be race-related on any given week. If you come here looking only for technical race-only commentary (and I have no idea why you'd have any reasonable expectation of that), this column may not be for you. See, in case this has escaped you (and I know it has for a few), my interest in NASCAR has never really been of a technical nature. I don't write about valve springs or wedge or chassis adjustments too much of the time. Rather, what I like about NASCAR has always been from a human-interest story point of view. I like the players and the side stories. I like the humor and the rivalry and the families.
