So Fox got an Emmy for Best Live Event Audio for ?Crank It Up?. Imagine. An award for racing sounds at a race. Isn?t ?Crank It Up? just the volume turned up on the racing sounds and the volume muted on the announcers? I wish I could do that at home. I?d turn on MRN in a heartbeat, but Charlotte, the world center of Stock Car Racing, doesn?t have an MRN affiliate. And then there?s that evil 7 second delay that makes it impractical to listen to PRN when they have the race.
I haven?t heard any complaints about Sunday?s Anthem performance. Normally, when a singer adds his/her own touches that are ?not the way it?s supposed to be sung?, there?s some criticism. Maybe we?ve moved on. Maybe only for a little while.
And finally, RIP Smokey?s ?BEST DAMN GARAGE IN TOWN?, 4.25.11. (Fire)
5.9.71: BP?s 1st win ? South Boston
5.10.73: DW?s 1st win ? Nashville
If Ned were in the booth we?d know what?s up with Jimmy Horton. (Isn?t he the last driver to exit Talladega via the wall?)
