Roger Roger Crockett

Roger Crockett.    Like most sports and racing is a SPORT,  it takes money but there is NO other sport where fans can really connect with the driver.    Roger Crockett is the driver SKS Racing #11 and has been racing and winning for 24 years.

Like Babe Ruth in baseball,  short tracking racing has their icons too.        At his home tracks he wins and in fact last year posted 11 feature wins.   Those are your finales that happen each night in the respective divisions.

Most of these racing venues are family run and there is also the thing with sponsors that enable a driver to compete.     You will notice the wings are like billboards on the car and that is where sponsors put their business,  their name and generally their phone numbers.





Roger also races at Knoxville Raceway in Iowa, not Tennessee. lol

Knoxville is a kind of championship track and home of the Sprint Car Hall of fame.

Dirtvision – This site allows for you to chat with other fans and to listen to live audio and video of that night’s racing.

Chatzy – Another chat room run by Mike Struely who is also a veteran.

And and support your local track and if you can, be a sponsor.

Chances are…

If I had the chance to complain to my boss,  I would.    I would be beet red and my hair would sizzle.     After all,   I hate that noon whistle.   I would also tell him with unfettered zeal about my missing box lunch.   I tucked it away in the back of the fridge and it still disappeared.   I blame that big guy because his eyes are too close,   he drives an old Volkswagen Bus an listens to Tiny Tim.   He looks guilty and I am sure that he is.

If I could complain about my neighbor about his overgrown grass I would,  because I like no confusion and to be understood.   I would complain that the noise made by his kin,   would just be the start of my angry sin.

If a cricket were in my shed,  hiding, I would be certain and find something to drive him out.   He would beat his legs together somewhere else I say.

If could talk to the mayor I would get rid of all the cracks.    Because who want their mothers to break their backs?    And those guys with gun racks how dare they be that way,  because Bambi just wanted to come out and play.

Oh I’d complain that’s for sure because no one else’s opinions would matter.   If I cut you off in rush hour traffic,   I would rail at you for going shopping.   Why can’t you just play shuffleboard or something.

I would criticize the politician and those nasty little bureaucrats.   If you disagreed with me I’d fill out a petition,   I don’t want to hear about your sedition.  And for your comediennes,   I would steal all the punch lines then jeer at your misfortune and hold laughter hostage.

I would also send all the Martians back to Pluto,  because I hate the color green and I am Irish one day each year.    I would also put rings around it and AND shoot Jupiter the bird.    Why does J get all the rings?

I would also make January the middle month and ground hogs day on July 4th.   I would capitalize only in Washington DC and rename Washington State the state of No Hope.

But other than this and ten thousand things more,  I am far too busy to care about friends anymore.   I would also objectify myself and then file a complaint and then throw it out for one mizzspelled wurd.

Other than that,  my life is bliss.




Roger Crockett NW Legend


I talked to 32 year old Roger Crockett who hails from the Upper Northwest Wednesday evening and have decided to pitch his racing program while at the same time bringing more light to a very important cause.   Being a veteran of the Air Force and losing a close friend to ALS,  I think we can spread this message because ALD (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is dehumanizing and it kills a person.

For me,  finding out Floyd was kind of bitter sweet.   You see he was found out to have this dreadful disease for a few months.    Sadly,   I remember when he fell outside going to a Doctor’s appointment.     It was too long after that that his arms were gone too and before you knew it he could no longer hardly talk and died peacefully a few weeks later.

Was this a coincidence finding him in that way?   If it was one then it was a good thing.   Although the bitter pill of death had swallowed him up and he now sings the angels,  together in peace with heavenly bodies.

His family and especially Bim his wife and daughter Wendy.   Wendy told him how he always made time for her and misses him so much.   Bim also invited me to stay if I became incapacitated.     But my problems are not so important to this dialogue.

For more information about this disease and Floyd please go to my ‘about me’.  Even the site itself is named after a song,  from an artist he liked.
