Just wanted to send everyone a quick note about my schedule. I'll be in Richmond the next few days covering NASCAR.

I plan to update The Insider if any Caps news breaks, but, unfortunately, won't able to do much else. Thanks for understanding.

Wow. That's gotta be a change of pace from the Caps beat!

Awesome Tarik, look forward to reading your coverage from Richmond. I usually go to the spring race down there but can't make it this year (hoping to hit the fall race instead). NASCAR is at its best under the lights, have fun this weekend!

Hey, Tarik - everyone here will buy you a round if you can sneak the phrase "Dale Earnhardt, Jr., driving the Number Eight Ovechkin Budweiser car..." into the WaPo.

Please accept my apologies as well. Sorry for this bad news.

I'll be there for the Busch race. Commonwealth, section d, row 27.

Come by and I'll buy you a beverage if you are covering that race.

BTW, big Denny Hamlin fan. Hoping he pulls of a Busch/Nextel win on his home track.

I'd rather cover nascar then the nats (or baseball for that matter).

Have fun. Drink a lot, and pick a driver and stick with'em.

I laughed out loud. Thanks for the chuckle.

Hey, he aint covering football. Humph.

Sounds like a cool gig every once in a while. I hear the spectacle of a NASCAR race these days is quite a sight.

Hockey, racing and golf, in that order, have been my favorite sports for a long time. And I get to cover all three this summer. So I'm not complaining.

sucks for you

Why NASCAR and not hockey?

I'd rather watch moss grow than a NASCAR race.

Non Athletic Sport Centered Around Rednecks


They gotta PAY me to cover a bunch of rednecks turning right!

HEY Tarik, find out why THE QUEEN went to the Derby instead of the race. Probably because there aren't any ball caps in those hat boxes she carts around.
