Burning Nitro With Patron Funny Car Driver Alexis DeJoria

To some people, Alexis DeJoria is the wife of Moster Garage star Jesse James. To others, she is the daughter of Jean-Paul DeJoria, billionaire businessman and co-founder of Paul Mitchell hair products and the Patron Spirits Company. But on the NHRA Mello Yello circuit, Alexis DeJoria is one of the most successful Funny Car drivers on the tour.

We spent two days with Alexis and her team from Kalitta Motorsports at the Kansas Nationals at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas, and inadvertently found ourselves in the middle of the most exciting weekend in the history of the sport.

In this video, Alexis talks about how her car accelerates faster than anything on earth (yes, even a fighter jet), how she got into racing, and her career-defining victory in the 2014 NHRA U.S. Nationals, it’s 60th anniversary, a feat akin to winning the Super Bowl.

The day before we arrived in Topeka, during the second day of qualifying, DeJoria ran the best run of her career, an Elapsed Time (ET) of 3.994. ET is the time it takes from the car to get from the starting line to finish line.

Carl Edwards and Goodyear Launch NASCAR ‘Tire Talk’ Videos

NASCAR legend Carl Edwards is helping Goodyear to kick off the 2015 Sprint Cup season and this weekend’s Daytona 500 by talking tires with consumers in a new video series aptly named “Tire Talk.”

To help fans better understand the role tires play in delivering superior performance on and off the track, Goodyear has teamed up with Joe Gibbs Racing driver Edwards to roll out the newest videos.

The three new Tire Talk videos highlight a range of Goodyear technologies, including the balance of grip and endurance engineered into multi-zone tread tires, water evacuation for enhanced grip in wet weather, and improved fuel mileage from low rolling resistance tires.

Scores Report Sits Down With Falcons Tight End Tony Gonzalez

I remember when Tony Gonzalez had a down year in 2010, his second year with the Atlanta Falcons. A “down” year for Tony G consisted of 70 receptions for 656 yards and 6 TUDS.

The whispers began to circulate about his days as a premier tight end being over and speculation was rampant that his career was nearing it’s end.

In the ensuing two years, Gonzalez accumulated 173 recs for 1,805 yards and 15 TD for an average yearly stat-line of 87 rec for 903 yards and roughly 8 TUDs.

The longtime Kansas City Chief enters his 17th NFL season this year; does that make you feel as old as it does me?

In the video below, I spoke to Tony about the secrets of his success, longevity and his new partnership with Clear Men Scalp Therapy. You can read the full interview here.
