What's Hot Continued

A perfect Dream Fulfilled !!!

On Thursday May 29th Chase Weese Met his racing hero, Jeff Gordon. Chase has a inoperable brain tumor and at almost 12 now one of his dreams was to meet Jeff . I have become close to him as well as to his family. Being that I am his Bowling hero and having the connections to make this young man smile and forget all the pain, I had the chance at the Dover Nascar race. Frank, his Father, brought Chase to Dover thinking I was going to be bowling on Thursday but little did he know there was a surprise in the works. I had made calls, sent emails etc approx a month in advance and up till a day before to make this happen for Chase. I contacted Trish Kriger of Jeff's Foundation who contacted Jon Edwards, (Jeff's PR man) and we all figured out the date and time. On the other side at the track to get Chase into the pits , Derrick Stanley and Gary Camp were extraordinarily helpful. I can't thank these wonderful people enough ! I also have to thank Allen Bestwick of ESPN for his help with passes ! The voice of Nascar racing !!
Jeff was doing an interview and when that was over he came into the office where we all were at and WOW the look on Chase's face was priceless !!! Chase can't talk because of strokes he has suffered but there was no questioning the excitement he was feeling . Jeff was as always with kids fantastic with Chase ! Jeff asked questions and talked to Chase providing him with the most memorable day in his life ! I can't thank Jeff enough for taking the time out of his super busy schedule to do this for Chase. I will be at The Jeff Gordon Foundation's annual Bowling event in Indy in Late July again this year helping out with his event. Last year they raised $250,000 for the Riley Children's hospital in Indy.


NHRA Drag Racing in Englishtown NJ

The weekend of June 20-22nd I went to go see the fastest accelerating cars on the planet. I went to go see my friends Chuck and Del Worsham of CSK race as well as Morgan Lucas and JR Todd of Lucas Oil racing.Del got to the semi finals while Morgan and JR lost first round. JR let me climb into the cockpit of his 330 mph dragster and it was tight quarters. These guys take in 4-5 g's at the hit of the throttle and up to -5 g's when the parachutes come out at the end of the run. Unreal. It was awesome to see live as tv does no justice.Picture above is Morgan, me and JR. These guys are also avid bowlers and we all bowled the Pro-Am in Columbus earlier this year !!!

Indianapolis 500 2008

From May 21st to the 26th I was in Indianapolis for the Indy 500. What a week of walking , taking pics and enjoying one of the most unbelievable events on the planet. Pics will be added soon. The pic above is with Jason Sobush and Brian Goslee (Elvis) . Jason was the turn 3 spotter for the 500 winner Scott Dixon. Jason was the man who hooked up the deal at Target Chip Ganassi racing that aired on the PBA show a few months ago where a few PBA players got a tour of the facility and tried in vain to change an Indy car tire.


Live Strong for Chase

On Sunday April 6th, Joy Esterson (PBA Ladies series Champion) and I Helped out with a fund raiser at AMF Southdale Lanes for 12 year old Chase Weese who has a inoperable brain tumor. We had a silent auction with Ravens Jerseys, signed Items from Walter Ray Williams Jr,myself ,Joy and Mika Koivuniemi. Nascar items, baseball items, Terps Items and much more. We raised over $5000.00 for the family's medical bills.

We also had a beat the pro's in which many tried their luck to get high count per shot against Joy and Myself and a 50/50 raffle. It was 20.00 to bowl for 2 hours and we all had a wonderful time !
Chase and his little brother Cory are avid fans of bowling and watch every show. They are also fans of racing,football and baseball and they bowled for 3 hours straight Sunday !!! What fun they had !

Many friends and family showed up to support this event as well as Betsy Hanson, the Mother of Stephen (see below), Stash from 98 Rock Baltimore (thanks for having me on air Friday afternoon drive time talking about this event ) for coming out as well as Micky,Amelia and Speigel from 98 rock for having me on air on the morning show Tuesday about this event. I also would like to extend my gratitude to Sean Lepper and the Lepper family,Dave Bauer and Cheryl Hyatt of D&S Pro Shop and AMF Southdale Employees for all their help in organizing this Fund raiser.Amy Miller,Maureen Cocca and Dana Iannantuono for running the silent auction and 50/50 's.
A HUGE thanks to Rafael Visoso, the Manager of AMF Southdale, for hosting this event for Chase as this would not have been possible without his Center.

Chase has had many operations and has suffered a few strokes because of this brain tumor and for a young man of 12 he continues to amaze all who he is around living as if nothing is wrong! He has had countless MRI's Ct's and other tests and the Weese's medical bills are insurmountable. Frank and Chris Weese contacted me a few years ago about his son and we all became friends because of bowling !. I actually introduced Chase to another little sick boy , Stephen Hanson and they became friends. Stephen did pass in late May from a similar brain tumor last year but the memories we have from this brave young man carry on. View Story

If you would like to donate to help out this young man here is the address for the Weese family:

Thank you for any and all help !!!

Joe Gibbs Racing

While helping out at a Charity function for Chuckie Gardner after the Spartanberg PBA event a few of us were invited to Joe Gibbs Racing. To see the behind the scenes things that have to happen before a NASCAR Car hits the track. It's so much more involved then "cars going in circles" . Every little thing matters to get these cars to go fast. This facility is over 400,000 thousand sq. feet and has everything imaginable to build a complete car from the ground up,which is what they do.A few Pictures will soon be up in the pics section....

Last week I had a chance to see Del ad Chuck Worsham's Checker-Schucks-Kragen's Funny car hit the track along with PBA member Jim Tomek. All I can say is 8000 horsepower is unreal ! My head about blew off when the went down the track at 320mph in 3.8 seconds in 1/4 of a mile and that was with earplugs! Del Qualified #1 and lost in the Semi finals.

I couldn't pass this up in hope's that it would help them from my side(website) to obtain more sponsorship" "The amount of people that go to my site will hopefully help them in their pursuit of sponsors.In return just having My logo(website) on the car will attract more race fans into bowling. It will create a little curiosity for both sides plus it's cool as heck to have my website on a car"

Both Jack and Bart are avid bowler's. Jack averaged 221 and Bart is in the low 200's.
