Summary of the 3 Female NGOTS Drivers in the Last Race

Decker - Cobb - Ruch

Natalie Decker

  • Born: June 25, 1997
  • Home: Eagle River, WI
  • #54 N29 Technologies Toyota
  • Owner - David Gilliland
  • 19th Start
  • 16th Finish
  • Laps: 97

For the 2019 race season Natalie signed with DGR-Crosley in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series. She has raced sixteen events with the best finish of thirteenth at Las Vegas. Despite being caught up in an incident in turn four on lap eighty-nine, with resulted in a three lap caution, Natalie was the highest finishing female driver in the 14th Annual Sugarlands Shine 250.

With oil sprayed on the track, Cobb got loose on lap eight and the resulting spin ‘flat-spotted’ her tires. Her tires were toast. With no funds immediately available for Cobb, she sat on pit road watching the laps roar by – when two NASCAR fans, who happened to be nearby Cobb’s truck heard about the circumstances and jumped in and bought a set of tires at $2,400 – allowing Cobb to return to the race track and finish the race.



Ms. Cobb has competed in the truck series since 2008 and has participated in one hundred and eighty-eight truck races. In 2011, she captured her first and only top-ten finish with a sixth-place finish at the Daytona season opener.

The Lost Story of The Original Speed King

The Lost Story of The Original Speed King

Mickey Thompson - In His Own Words

Scheduled for release in December 2019, this book, by the late motorsports writer (and former drag racer) Tom Madigan, offers a now-impossible (Thompson and his wife were murdered in 1988) first-person telling of the legendary racer and motorsport impresario’s high-speed life.

The chapters rocket the reader from Mickey’s earliest days through the height of his competition exploits on drag strips, at Bonneville, the Indy 500, Baja, and more!

The pages are complemented by some two hundred (200) rare images culled from family archives, the NHRA museum, and the collections of friends and fellow racers.

In the early 1970s, Madigan and Thompson embarked on a project to write the latter’s autobiography. After two years, extensive interviews, and a near-finished manuscript, the enterprise fell apart for several reasons. Type-written sheets were boxed, stored, and mostly forgotten, sitting in a desk drawer, not seeing the light of day until Madigan brought it to publishers Motorbooks in 2018.

‘Mickey Thompson’ features a new foreword by SoCal Speed Shop founder Alx Xydias and epilogue about Mickey Thompson’s son Danny, who returned to Bonneville Challenger II to claim one record that eluded his father – Danny’s son, Travis Thompson, wrote this:

Like nearly every accomplishment made throughout his life, Marion Lee “Mickey” Thompson faced every challenge without fear and with very little compromise. This book is no exception. Mickey Thompson: The Untold Story of the Original Speed King is an amazing biographical artifact that follows in the spirit of the Thompson legacy.

About the Author

Tom Madigan, an award-winning automotive author and journalist who documented more than 50 years of automobile racing, died peacefully in his Sonora, California, home, March 28. He was 80 years old.

Madigan spent the past 50 years in the midst of the high-performance automotive culture. He was the 2005 winner of the Motor Press Guild’s coveted Dean Batchelor Award for his book, Edelbrock: Made in the USA, the story of the famous Edelbrock family, Vic Sr. and Vic Jr., and their high-performance business.

Madigan was also the owner/driver of a fuel dragster in the ’60s before joining Argus Publishing Co. in 1967, where he quickly became the editor of Motorcade magazine. Later in his Argus career, he became the feature editor for Popular Hot Rodding magazine, and then the editor of Off-Road magazine. After nine years, Madigan left Argus to start his own company, Tom Madigan Productions. His client list soon included Petersen Publishing Co., and he provided articles for Hot Rod, Motor Trend and Car Craft, and also wrote many Petersen “one-shot” publications.

Madigan created the Concours Automotive Video Series and wrote many of the episodes featuring Tony Nancy. He also teamed with Dave Marcus to produce a NASCAR episode for the TV program, “Those Who Dare.”

Spencer Boyd Nabs his First Upper Level NASCAR Win

Spencer Boyd Nabs his First Upper Level #NASCAR Win

“First Win Is Pretty Sweet” Spencer Boyd

“First Win Is Pretty Sweet” Spencer Boyd #NASCAR


Spencer Boyd crossed the finish line .132 seconds behind Johnny Sauter in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series Race. However, NASCAR informed the teams that the 'Sugarlands Shine 250' finish was under review and subsequently awarded the victory to Boyd. A penalty for blocking Riley Herbst below the yellow line in the final 200 yards of the event cost Sauter the victory. Spencer’s previous best series finish was a fourth in the 2019 season opener at Daytona.

“You know the first one you always dream of since a little kid. Its pretty crazy – I have been a race fan for a long time and I’ve been racings since I was five. So at twenty-four now, to go get that win with Young’s Motorsports, I’ve been driving the twenty for most of the year and this deal came together pretty late. . . . to drive this Alabama Roofing Professional Chevy this weekend. It was a total team effort; we worked really hard - - - the truck drafted really well. Just driving for a family owned team Tyler Young and his parents, Becky and Randy worked so hard and it is just a pleasure to be here at Talladega.” Expressed the excited race winner.

Wallace's #43 Darlington Poster Honoring Adam Petty Auction


Eleven-Year-Old Supports Victory Junction with Hand Drawn RPM Bubba Wallace Poster #NASCAR


Mitchell is an eleven-year-old who loves NASCAR, everything Petty, and Bubba Wallace! He goes to lots of NASCAR races with his dad and always make posters to show support for his driver, Bubba Wallace, driver of the #43 and his team, Richard Petty Motorsports

For the Darlington race, Bubba drove a throwback scheme, designed to honor Adam Petty's win in the ARCA series, and the sponsor of the car, Victory Junction Camp. Mitchell made the poster in honor of Adam Petty, his legacy, and the camp.


That poster (pictured above) is autographed by Bubba Wallace, Kyle Petty, and the King of NASCAR - Richard Petty.  You can bid on this NASCAR artwork with all the proceeds of the sale to benefit Victory Junction Gang Camp Inc.


Eleven-Year-Old Supports Victory Junction with Hand Drawn RPM Bubba Wallace Poster #NASCAR

Interview of Mitchell by his Father

1) Mitchell, why did you make this poster?

Answer: To support Bubba Wallace and Richard Petty Motorsports. In memory of and honor of Adam Petty because of how good of a person he was. I am just happy Bubba got to drive that car.

2) Mitchell, why do you want to auction this poster off?

Answer: Because that is what Adam Petty would do. He would donate money to Victory Junction and he would do everything he could to make kids smile and I think something I dedicated to him should help a camp he wanted to make. I am just happy that my poster is gonna go for money that I can donate to get somebody to go to camp. My goal is to try to do the same thing that Adam would do. I want to be able to help that camp. I want to be a counselor when I turn 18. I want to help as much as I can to honor Adam Petty.

3) Why is Victory Junction special to you?

Answer: Because it is Adam Petty's legacy. It is what he wanted to make. I have been to Victory Junction Camp twice (not as a camper). When I was there I felt proud to be a 43 fan and to know about Adam Petty. It is a special place, just for kids who might not be able to go to camps like 4h or other camps I can go to.

4) What makes Adam Petty special to you?

Answer: He was just a great person. Everything he did for everybody was remarkable. There are not many people like that and I think that's pretty awesome.

Darlington marked Mitchell's 7th NASCAR race of the season and his 7th #43 poster this season. He makes them all for Bubba Wallace and the #43 team. He wanted to give the poster to the camp, but I made the suggestion that he auction it off for proceeds to go to Victory Junction Camp. He jumped all over it. He is so excited! His goal is no small one. He wants to raise enough money to send one camper to camp ($1,500-$2,500!). While I understand he likely won't reach his goal, I hope we can raise some funds for Victory Junction and some exposure as well! Mitchell's Dad

Adam Petty

Adam Kyler Petty was an American professional racing driver. He was the fourth generation from the Petty family to drive in races in the highest division of NASCAR racing. He is believed to be the first fourth-generation athlete in all of modern American professional sports.

Tragically, on May 12, 2000, in a practice session for the Busch 200 race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Petty's throttle stuck wide open going into turn three, causing the car to hit the outside wall virtually head on. Petty was killed instantly when he suffered a basilar skull fracture. He was just nineteen years old.

The Petty family founded Victory Junction in honor of their son and to honor his dream of helping children.


100% of the sale of this item will benefit Victory Junction Gang Camp Inc.

Victory Junction enriches the lives of children with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses by providing life-changing camp experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering; all in a medically-safe environment at no cost to the camper or their family. Located in the hills of Randleman, North Carolina, Victory Junction is spread across 84 acres, allowing children to do what they do best - be kids, play, imagine, make friends and enjoy the adventures and experiences of camp life.

Kurt Busch's Ex-Girlfriend Get Prison Time for Fraud and Tax Evasion

Kurt Busch's Ex-Girlfriend Get Prison Time for Fraud and Tax Evasion

Karma for Busch and Driscoll?

Couple In Happier Times (2013)
Remember back in 2015, when NASCAR’s 2004 Cup Champion, Kurt Busch was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR after a Delaware family court cited "more likely than not" that Busch had abused his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll?

Driscoll had made the domestic violence accusation after the couple split up. She had used Busch's personal entrance code to let herself into Busch’s motor coach at Dover International Speedway. She alleged that the driver strangled her and slammed her head against the wall of his trailer three times.

Kurt Busch applied for reinstatement ten days after the Daytona 500, and began his reinstatement program. On March 11, 2015, NASCAR lifted Busch's indefinite suspension after prosecutors in Delaware determined there was not enough evidence to bring a criminal case against Busch, making him eligible to compete again. Additionally, Busch was granted a waiver by NASCAR, making him still eligible for the Chase if he won a race between then and the autumn Richmond event. Despite missing three races, Kurt finished eighth in the point standings with two wins (Fontana & Fort Worth)

In November 2018, Patricia Driscoll, age 41, was found guilty of using her position as the executive director of the Armed Forces Foundation to steal from the nonprofit and donors while simultaneously hiding her salary from the IRS and the public.

On September 13th, she was sentenced to **twelve (12) months and one day in prison. She will also serve 36 months of supervised release, a period of home confinement, 360 hours of community service and pay $154,289 in restitution and $81,779 in a money judgment forfeiture.

A jury found that Driscoll was using the foundation’s money for personal use and to pay her for-profit business expenses.

Previously, Ms. Driscoll stated about the abuse claim, “I’m telling you, it’s better to take the beating that day and keep your mouth shut than it is for anything that has happened after . . . . . . It is not worth it at all. I should have stayed quiet.” 
In a statement, Driscoll’s attorneys said: “The jury did not get it right — Patricia Driscoll is innocent. We are very disappointed by the verdict.” The statement, from attorney Brian W. Stolarz, added: “We will appeal. This is not the final chapter to this story.”

NASCAR Race Mom has no idea if Ms. Driscoll’s allegations against Kurt Busch held merit – but ***karma has seemingly made an appearance in this NASCAR drama.

**Twelve Months and a Day Sentence - For anything up to a year, the convicted serves county time at day for day. Which means you must do almost 6 months in custody. However, after a year you go to prison which means you have “good time” further reducing your sentence.

***Karma - the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
