There will be plenty of old-fashioned hard nose rubbing and grinding when the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series returns to the beautiful Northern California wine country for 24th consecutive year with the Toyota/Save Mart 350 this weekend at Sonoma Raceway.
Recently my wife gave me the green light to reserve a campsite for an upcoming camping trip. Being that we have a newborn and a nine year old, choosing where we were going to go was tough. What I found even harder was choosing the right campsite.
Back in 1989 my family moved to Manteca from San Jose. Before then, we would make the trip every weekend to fish mostly the Delta and Lake Amador. I was in my teens at the time, so I didn't mind the drive. Actually, I slept most of the way home but not the way there, I stayed awake for every mile.
The 2012 frustrations of Escalon's Eric Holmes continued in last weekend's NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Series Star Nursery "200" at the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Many of us spend a lot of time preparing our boats for our next fishing trip. What always frustrated me was that it seemed like once I was finally on the water, I ended up reorganizing everything that I had spent the day before finding the perfect spot for. This was especially true when fishing out of a smaller boat.
Memorial Day weekend is one of those weekends I plan on celebrating at home. There's sure to be a "Band of Brothers" marathon to keep me entertained and the weather forecast looks great for hanging around the pool.
Proving that you don't have to finish first to be a winner Dylan Kwasniewski, 16, of Las Vegas, picked up a victory in last Saturday's Graham Tire "150" NASCAR K&N Pro Series East & K&N Pro Series West combination race at Iowa Speedway.
At least once a year my family has a garage sale. We pull out the normal garage sale items like clothes, small appliances, tools, furniture, and anything else that's been taking up space. Usually, I set up a table with old fishing gear. This year I didn't have much time to prepare, so I left out my fishing gear. I did put out some old rain gear and a box full of plastic baits that I wanted to get rid of.
I've come to sort of a crossroad; I'm doing more trout fishing lately than bass fishing. There was a time not too long ago where I would toss back every fish I caught in my pursuit of catching bass. I've always known there was great trout and kokanee fishing around us but never quite had an interest. Call it old age or just being lazy, but sitting back while waiting for the fish to come to you is a whole lot easier than being pounded by the sun's rays while standing on a deck of a ...
Three-time NASCAR K&N Pro Series West champion Eric Holmes of Escalon grew up watching his father Steve Holmes compete against local legends such as Ken Boyd, David Philpott, Ron Strmiska and Harry Belletto at Stockton's 99 Speedway so, naturally, the closure of the historic short-track at the end of the 2006 season was a very big disappointment to him.
Recently I was able to get out and enjoy some of the beautiful weather we've been having. Unfortunately it came with a cost, while showering over the weekend I discovered that I had been bitten by a tick. I've experienced ticks before so I got my tweezers and removed it. What was different about this one was that the area where I had been bitten was more swollen then I can remember previous tick bites being.
Following a one week delay due to the weather, the new Stockton 99 Speedway is set to kick off its 2012 season tonight with the Spears Manufacturing 125 for the SRL Late Model Southwest Tour Series.
Last week I was able to get out fishing, it's been a while since I've been out. My partner became ill the night before, leaving me to fish by myself. I had my dog with me, but she wasn't much help lying on the bottom of the boat dead asleep most of the day. At one point I even heard her snoring!
The end of football season marks both a happy and sad time for me. Although I fish year round, football helps fill the void when I'm stuck at home unable to fish. The nice thing about the end of football season is the beginning of spring and with the weather we've been getting lately, we just may have an early spring.
Ricky Williams. The enigmatic running back remembered by many as that one guy who retired from the NFL to burn trees. The Heisman Trophy winner, one time pride of the University of Texas and former first round pick has retired for the second, and seemingly last, time.
These past few weeks my older sister, her husband, and two boys were visiting all the way from England. I was able to take my brother-in-law out fishing with me twice. Both times we limited out and really had a great time.
I'm pretty sure that all the talk amongst fishermen lately has been dominated with the water levels in our local lakes. It's definitely a concern of mine as I can't help to not think about how many of my summer fishing spots are already above water.
