Going for Broke.: In one way, there's a lot of people saying, 'You can't do this. You can't run in NASCAR. You can't get that money; you don't have that money.' But, look, I know I don't have the money, but I've got the gumption, and I've got the chutzpah. I've got the grit, and I know that I can pull this off." Milburn doesn't have a sponsor—a few here and there, sure, but nothing bigger than The Electric Light & Power Company, a local film-equipment rental house, and Reverend Horton Heat.

I haven't checked out my Lotto 649 ticket yet ($25M up for grabs in the tax on people who are bad at math), but if I won, this mother fucker's got a partner. I wonder if we scratched up $500, he'd put our name on the truck. Great, great link, Ufez.

Unless you bought it in Quebec, you didn't win Fraze.

For every 100 or so ridiculous stories about whiny (Pavano) spoiled (Clemens) or downright criminal (Tank Johnson, Elijah Dukes, Pacman Jones, The entire Cincinnati Bengals) athletes its nice to read a story once in a while about a little guy chasing windmills like this article or the article about Sean Casey giving of his time and money to the soup kitchen a while back. If I lived anywhere near Texas it would be enough to make me want quit my job and go try and find the guy sponsers. Great story.

How could you possibly need more sponsors when you've got the Reverend Horton Heat on board already?

With the Reverend on board, you know that car is gonna move.
