EVRI: A Gambling Ticker That's Going to Valhalla

EVRI: The True Autists Gambling Ticker
Alright dipshits, I believe I have found a ticker that has huge growth potential over the next few months that is under the radar of many. So prepare your smooth brains and tell your wife's boyfriend to leave the room so you can jerk off to these potential gains.
EVRI is Everi Holdings Inc. Don’t know what that is? They’re only “the casino industry’s only single source provider of robust payments solutions, vital intelligence offerings, and engaging gaming machines that power the casino floor” according to Casino Vendors
(Source: http://www.casinovendors.com/vendoeveri-holdings-inc/)
Now if that doesn’t make your wife’s boyfriend cream his jeans, then the following information might just make your dick hard enough to satisfy your displeasured wife. I think that EVRI could see huge growth for the following reasons
EVRI has the versatility both online and on the floor for casinos
Taking a look at this source (http://www.casinovendors.com/vendoeveri-holdings-inc/) you can see that there products and services include…
  1. Gaming equipment and supplies: “Everi Games feature exciting original concepts, dynamic artwork, and thrilling game play that are designed to stop patrons in their tracks.

and… “Intuitive, flexible & designed Kiosks to provide a premium experience to patrons.”
  1. Administration and Finance: “Everi Compliance™ has new and innovative compliance products expanding our ability to service patrons and casino customers.

Based off of these services alone, any one of you extra-chromosomes gamblers can see why EVRI is able to make money both online and on the floor, physical casinos. They make online gambling games, provide systems to protect casinos, design on the floor games, have products to transfer money in and out of debit/credit cards at the casino to feed the gambler, and even have business in reporting casino data and marketing campaigns. IF THIS ISN'T A COMPANY THAT DOESN'T DO EVERYTHING THEN IDK WHAT TO TELL YOUR SMOOTH BRAIN. They are immune to COVID and can be profitable with/without it.
EVRI has great target prices from analysts and even has potential news coming up that can propel us Valhalla
https://www.casino.org/news/everi-soars-on-digital-wallet-deal-with-winstar-casino/
“But Roth Capital analyst David Bain previously said two agreements with tribal operators notched by Everi account for 15 percent of the company’s fintech business and were going overlooked by investors.” This made the price target shift from $20 to $21 for this guy.
This same article said this about David Bain as well “Today’s surge by Everi stock may not be a one-off event. Bain, the Roth Capital analyst, says another customer will roll out CashClub Wallet in the coming weeks. He didn’t identify that operator, but he did say it’s one of the largest casino firms in the world. The analyst adds that on a standalone basis, Everi’s fintech basis is worth $16 a share. When accounting for peer average multiples on gaming device suppliers, the stock could trade near $29, or more than double where it resides today.”
I know some you have a hard time reading, but that means we could see news of EVRI’s own product (CashClub) be announced to be integrated in one of the largest casinos companies in the world. If that doesn’t scream PUMP, I don't know what does
EVRI also has fantastic news of expanding, incorporating, and even being recognized as the best in their field

EVRI’s option chain are cheap for long dated calls
Because I am writing this after hours, the options chain will most likely change come market open, but keep in mind, they will still be cheap.
Looking at January 20c and March 22.5c, they are .18 with a .05-.3 bid/spread and .2-.25.
Yeah yeah yeah, I know what you’re thinking “oH tHE BiD aSK SpREad is TOO wIdE”. But if you guys seriously think the bid/ask spread is what has limited your autistic trades up to this point, then you’re just lying to yourself. Get your order filled, because were making fucking tendies.
THE MEME POTENTIAL OF THIS STOCK IS PERFECT FOR US RETARDS

WE ARE MADE FOR THIS TICKER, AND AS AUTISTS AND GAMBLERS WE NEED THIS PLAY. As many of you know, once a ticker catches fire in this sub it gets HUGE coverage. Look for yourselves at the countless memes and videos of WSB getting coverage on Cramers shows and news outlets. MEMES MEAN MORE ADVERTISING, MEANS MORE PUMPS, MEANS MORE TENDIES, WHICH MEANS MORE MONEY FOR DICK PUMPS.
I rest my case.
TLDR; EVRi is a fucking powerhouse in the online/in-person gambling/casino world. They have lots of news going for them along with having cheap calls, a well run business with great price targets, good price action movement, and most importantly infinite meme potential

Where to find poker games in DFW?

Is there a website with poker rooms/underground games/etc. in Dallas/Fort Worth? Where do I find more info on this. I used to play 1/2, 1/3, 2/5 NLHE or Omaha at Winstar casino but since the poker room isn’t open I want to play somewhere in DFW. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

AITA for not giving my mom 5 dollars

Am I the asshole for not giving my mom 5 dollars
Ok here’s some info. I’m 16 years old and my mother is addicted to gambling and has been ever since I can remember. She also owns an antique shop (will be important). She’s been on somewhat of a bender recently to say the least as she misplaced her antidepressants. She drives all the way to Winstar casino (I live in a small town just south of Fort Worth tx) in Oklahoma and stays there for 36 hours at a time gambling, multiple times a week. She’s cleaned out her shops account and the change drawer to go gambling. This morning, my wallet went missing with my id, social security card, and 40 dollars in cash. I needed that money to pay my dues for the technical honor society, so now I can’t be in it. I got the wallet back and all of my cards were misplaced, meaning she took them all out, and the money was gone. My dad gave me some more money for lunch, and she demanded I give her the change. I said no and she went ballistic. She pulled the whole “I’m your mother give me the money” and I still wouldn’t. My dad says I should have just given it to her to avoid the conflict and since it was a small amount of money, but I disagree. 5 dollars can turn into 10, 10 can turn into 20, and who knows where it will end. Was I the asshole for starting shit though?
Edit: She was trying to scrounge up some change for her shop since she spent everything in the drawer, although I fail to see how that’s my problem.

Best place to play 1/2 NL Cash in Shreveport?

I usually play 1/2 NL Cash games at the Winstar in Oklahoma. I am going to Louisiana soon and was wondering where the best place to play 1/2 is. Bonus points if you can tell me how the games at said casino compare to the ones at Winstar. Thank you!

Working at a game room. Need to know if I should quit.

Hi all. I'm looking for a little legal advice on working at a "game room" in Texas. Which means that I work at a hole in the wall, grey area casino. It's obviously best if I don't say where, so I'm not going to. What I'm trying to find out, is what charges can be filed against me for being an employee there. Is it just a Class C Misdemeanor, or is it more serious? All slot machines.
People come in, and they put their money in a machine. They play and if they win or want to cash out, they get a "ticket" made out to them. Instead of having the machine print one like they would at a big, legit place like Winstar. They then take this ticket up to the counter, where someone pays them out.
The slot machines are clearly just old models that some real casino somewhere, didn't want anymore. There's even video evidence because everything is recorded. There's a big camera system and everything is being recorded in the back. At least I think it is, unless the hard drive is disconnected inside that recording box they have back there. So all the employees will be on camera paying people out.
How does this place even exist? According to the other employees, some of them have been told by the owner that the county essentially turns a blind eye to it. There's supposedly 5 other ones that he (the owner) knows of, just in this county. I've seen one other one for myself. It's nearby. The reason the law turns a blind eye to it, is supposedly because they have an easier time "cleaning up the streets" as it were. Supposedly, the fuzz will go check these places and very often find the dregs they're looking for. More hearsay is: When the next county over had a problem with these game rooms popping up like weeds, they learned of this little benefit. This ease of finding people they needed to arrest, people that the police are looking for. They're known to frequent these kinds of places. Anyway, I've yet to see anything like that happen. I have my doubts, but that's what the fellow employees say that the owner told them.
I find it much more likely, that this "grey area" the owner finds himself in, exists because he "supports the community" if you know what I mean. He greases a few palms or some such. This is all pure speculation on my part, but I do know that gambling is illegal in Texas. So something odd is going on. Word of mouth would have that place already shut down, if the right people wanted it shut down. Obviously they don't. Or they don't want it all that much. But then, maybe one day those people change their minds.
And if I may, please, don't clog the thread with replies saying "Just quit" or "Why risk it" and all of that stuff. All I'm looking to learn here, is the real penalty for working there. Then I'll make my decision on whether or not to quit, based on that. Does anyone know what the actual law is? Keep in mind I'm not gambling myself.

How far do you travel for poker?

This is a thought I had on my ride home last night. How far do you all travel from home or work to your casino or card room to play poker?

I live in Houston's and it's an odd market. The 'Texas' rooms play way too big for me, so I'm left to travel to Lake Charles, LA (120-150 miles away) to the 4 casinos there - but the Texas rooms have taken a lot of that traffic away. None of the legit casinos ever have more than six 1/3 tables going on a busy Saturday night or Winstar at the OK/TX border on I35 (305 miles).

Basically, I can't get a live game that I want to play unless I commit a significant portion of a day or a full weekend (costing a hotel night, etc.). If cost isn't a factor, I can add 30 minutes each way to my travel time and get to Vegas for the time it takes me to get to Winstar. It's why I can't ever really get more than 300 hours at the table. Because I'm basically spending just as much time time travelling as I do playing.

When I fly to where I grew up to visit my mom, she lives 35 minutes from Sands in Bethlehem PA. It's super convenient and the gas costs/toll isn't ridiculous to go play for a few hours. It makes visiting my mom much more tolerable when I can jump out after she goes to bed and play for a few hours.

Anyway - how far do y'all travel?

Guys' trip to Shreveport + Horseshoe 1/3 NLH weekend review

I went to Shreveport this weekend for a guys' trip. This is my experience. This will be long and a lot will be common knowledge to live grinders. Believe it or not, I did cut out A LOT of unnecessary info..
I just want to start by saying the 1/3 game at The Horseshoe was AMAZING compared to the 1/2 games I've played 8+ years ago at Chocktaw/Winstar. I really hate low stakes NLH because of the 6-10x standard open and capped buyin, which basically turns the post flop game into a short stacked 2/5 game. 1/3 at The Horseshoe allows you to buy in and match the biggest stack. All of a sudden those $20 opens aren't so crushing. I've heard there is a 1/3 at Winstar. If you play there, please let me know if they have the same buyin setup.
First night, I get there, they just opened a new table, and I was able to sit down with people who also just arrived. I asked about the straddle situation. I do enjoy the button straddle element to the game, but rarely use it. They said if the table agrees, we can do a straddle/button straddle. We agreed. They put a small sign next to the dealer that indicates straddles are allowed. For those who don't know, a button straddle is where the button can double the big blind and take over as last to act pre. Once a button straddle is on, the small blind is now UTG and first to act. This table ended up being the best table I've played with probably ever. Most were drinking. There was a decent amount of action. Table talk was fun. I was immediately surprised how comfortable these players were that sat down. They all seemed to play very regularly and seemed like they would be good. Spoiler, they weren't. The players were limp/calling pre and very passive post for the most part. I get the feeling most would describe their game as TAG or LAG, but nearly all were completely Loose-Passive and Holdem Manager would label over half the table as fish. In online terms, I'd say this was a 45VPIP/10PFR table, which for my nitty game usually means cha-ching! I was right. By the end of it, I was in for $400 at 7:45pm and out at 11:30pm for $918. The free drinks were great and I got a bit drunky, which is mostly why I got up. I'm usually the worst drunk poker player ever, but managed to stick with the strategy this time. I didn't play a flashy game. I was nervous and had shaky hands for the first hour. I just played super tight, fold or raise pre(only limping blinds and rarely), big squeezes with premiums, and take it down on the flop or turn. I would have liked to have made smaller value bets to keep players in, but I was pretty determined to post a win and was quick to take them down. That way I can talk my wife into letting me play live more. I haven't played live at a casino in 2 and a half years and that makes me sad. Profit: $518 over 3.75 hours Stack: https://i.imgur.com/c2341xO.jpg My stack next to my buddy's absurd stack. He's a genuine LAG and much better than I am. https://i.imgur.com/6TDlVCh.jpg You can also see the button straddle sign in red next to the dealer
It was a guys' trip and we don't all play poker, so I didn't want to spend all my time at the table. I continued the drinky, including celebratory shots, and went to bed at 1am. Sadly, the dad in me woke up at 7am anyway. Two of my friends wake up at 8:30 despite staying up til 5am. We all get ready and watch Tiger play at the hotel until the only place we could find that has TV opens up, Hooters.
At 12:30, I'm back at the table. I'm pretty sure most of the players came from a dwindled 2/5 game because I look around and see some mega stacks from multiple OMCs. At least 3 have black chips($100) and I see a lot of green chips($25) out there. I think the big stack had about $2.5k. This table was a lot tighter preflop overall. I'd say this was about a 30VPIP/15PFR table. I play my same game waiting for cards. I end up about $150 up after an hour. I picked up queens and had a good flop. Took down $100. I did the same with an AK hand. Then I ran into a couple of OMCs that were not havin' it. I squeezed to $22 in position with AQo. OMC pops it to $225 after having limped originally. I let it go. Another hand, the King OMCs raises to $10. I raise to $25 with AJs. King OMC calls and the flop is AT3 with a flush draw possibility. I have top pair and no flush draw. Yay! I lead out for $25, which now I think I'd rather have checked. OMC pops it to $65. I think this is an easy call and see what happens, but this man has made zero plays so far. I mean, he has just sat there and I'm at times genuinely concerned he might be dead. Not this time. He woke up and I just folded. I had a weird feeling and let it go. Not long after that hand, and I shit you not, another OMC walks up to his king and at some point I hear the words "I wish they could hook this straight up to my veins." King OMC laughs in approval. I am not making this up. About this time, I'm ready to leave. I was super hung over, my hands were shaking even when I wasn't in a hand, and I had one of those back of the eyeball headaches. And let's face it, this table is not a great one for my game. In for $600 at 12:30 and out for $634 at 2:30. Profit: $34 over 2 hours (Did not take picture of my $34 profit stack)
I go back to my shithole room at Diamond Jacks and take a nap while my buddies hit up the pool. When I say shithole, I mean the tv is an old tube that cuts off the far right and left of every channel. Nice Jacuzzi tub, though. I can't complain too much. The room was only $250 for Friday and Saturday nights, which means I only paid $125 since we split the room. The TV: https://i.imgur.com/IeDtjtD.jpg https://i.imgur.com/EYaNrXJ.jpg Not bad Jacuzzi tub: https://i.imgur.com/5hKcyv5.jpg
After the nap, we eat and I'm back at the tables at 7:30. I'm super groggy this time. The table is great for action, but full of shady individuals who don't talk. I watched one guy pick up his big blind after the dealer forgot to scoop it in the pot. A few of us noticed, but didn't say anything. I later found out the guy he screwed out of $3 was his own brother. I have a few good hands. I had queens again that won me $40 preflop when I squeezed to $80. I picked up another $60 when I get AsJs and 5 $12 callers. I flopped two spades and bet $35 to take it down. Headache is gone, so that's a plus. Good news. After almost 2 hours, I'm up nearly $200. I decide to go ahead and pack it up. The trip has paid for itself, I'm too exhausted to concentrate, and time to get drunk one last night before it's back to reality. In for $400 at 7:30, out for $598 at 9:15. Profit: $198 over 1.75 hrs Stack: https://i.imgur.com/VwBOWbJ.jpg Again, my buddy's stack on the last night. He ended up winning all 3 sessions with over $2k profit for the weekend: https://i.imgur.com/hAoSVYP.jpg
Total of $748 over 7.5 hours ~$100/hr Yay!
TL;DR Went to Shreveport for a guys' trip. Had a great time. Found the 1/3 game is big and players are generally passive. Won some money and my friend won a lot more. I highly recommend it for those internet grinders who want to leave their basements every once in a while and try out live poker.

Rank 1 Legendary NA Season 3 (1 Legendary card shaman deck)

Rank 1 NA
I just wanted to show that it is possible to make it to legendary without having all the legendary cards at your disposal. I started out with druid and having 2 legendary cards (Pagle and Cairne) and I would buy a new pack every time I got 100 gold from playing. I eventually saved up enough gold for a tinkmaster. The Druid deck was able to get to legendary, but the Shaman deck was the deck that actually got to rank 1 and it only has one legendary card (Pagle) with could easily be replace by another Manatide totem. There are legendary cards that would make these decks more optimal, but the are not absolutely necessary. If you want to learn anymore about the decks or ask me any questions feel free to visit my stream or just hit me up on twitter. <3
Bio: My primary hobby for the past 15 years was Magic the Gathering where I wore TMNT shirts and was known as "T Webb" so that is where my name comes from. I played on the Magic Pro Tour on and off and was a gravy train pro for 2 years during college. I fell off the pro tour during my Senior year when I was focusing on school. I attended college at UNT in Denton and dealt black jack at Winstar world casino. While in Denton I lived in an apartment with Kitkatz and we played a lot of Magic the gathering online. Over the past couple years magic has changed and I have liked it less and less so I recently started playing Hearthstone. Six days after I ventured into constructed I got to rank 1 on NA with one legendary in my shaman deck.
The decks that I used. Very few legendary cards: Shaman Decklist Druid Decklist

ATAK: Android Team Awareness Kit....DHS App that might be responsible for some targeting situations

https://youtu.be/HdNy0YBfEvU

Tactical training where the target (adversary) is tracked using Geospatial technology and communicated to all team members in a defined area......Interesting. I have experienced very stressful situation at Winstar Casino where the stalkers were all very serious military-like men. There were no silly skits or color harassment. They would move as a group quickly in a parameter all around me then close in all at once. None of them ever got closer than 6-10ft from me. It happened in waves throughout the day and night. Maybe this was part of the development or deployment of a DHS mobile application?
Anyone else have a similar experience?

Race Sponsor Spotlight: Pocono/Texas

Pocono is the next stop for the Cup and Xfinity Series for the Axalta presents the Pocono 400 and the Pocono Green 250. About 1,526.8 miles away, the Truck Series joins the IndyCar Series and Stadium Super Trucks at Texas Motor Speedway with the winstaronlinegaming.com 400.
Since its first race in 2016, the Pocono Xfinity race has never had a title sponsor, so they won't be covered in this edition.
Cup: Axalta presents the Pocono 400
I suppose Axalta doesn't need much of an introduction for NASCAR fans, especially those who know it as DuPont Performance Coatings. For the sake of this series, let's go as far back as possible, when DuPont first joined the sport.
DuPont's involvement in NASCAR did not start with Jeff Gordon, but with Ricky Craven's #99 in the Busch Series in 1992. Running the full season with DuPont sponsorship, he finished 14th in points. When Craven started his own team in 1994, the #2 was also adorned with DuPont livery. In five seasons together, Craven/DuPont won twice (both in 1994).
At the end of the 1992 season, DuPont decided to sponsor a Winston Cup Series car: the #24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, driven by a young, mustachioed California kid by the name of Jeff Gordon). The youngster and DuPont's Cup debut did not go as planned, crashing on lap 164 and finishing 31st.
Gordon and DuPont moved up to the Cup Series full-time in 1993, where he earned Rookie of the Year honors before winning his first Cup races in 1994. The rest is history.
For much of the 1990s and early 2000s, Gordon's rainbow #24 featured DuPont as a primary sponsor, with occasional one-offs sharing the hood with the navy blue oval like NASCAR Racers, the silver NASCAR 2000 car, and the (in)famous T-Rex.
Besides Gordon, DuPont also sponsored other drivers in the lower series during the 1990s. In 1995, the newly-formed SuperTruck Series also featured a rainbow #24 car sponsored by DuPont.... driven by Scott Lagasse. Gordon's teammate Terry Labonte also drove a DuPont truck – the #5 – part-time that year. Over the next four years, DuPont made sporadic appearances on trucks: Lonnie Cox's #36 featured DuPont Thompson PBE sponsorship, while Bill Sedgwick and Austin Cameron had DuPont Stainmaster Carpet in 1998 and 1999, respectively. In 1999, Gordon and crew chief Ray Evernham's Busch Series team – Gordon/Evernham Motorsports – fielded the #24 Pepsi car for Ricky Hendrick, though Hendrick also drove a DuPont car on two occasions.
In 2001, Gordon announced he would be dropping the 51-time race-winning Rainbow Warrior and speculation arose regarding what its replacement would be. As every fan would know, in came the flames.
"I feel like the team has really worked hard and come together this year," Gordon stated. "That should put us in a real good position and I think the new paint scheme will be a great way to re-ignite this team going into next year."
"NASCAR has been a tremendous showcase for our paint finishes and this new paint scheme utilizes our latest undercoat and most productive clearcoat, and features brilliant, exciting colors," DuPont Performance Coatings president Lou Savelli added. "We think it will generate even more recognition of the DuPont name among NASCAR fans throughout the world."
Gordon would drive the blue-and-red flames car to Victory Lane 29 times, including his fourth and final championship in its debut season in 2001. Other DuPont variations began to appear on the #24 starting in 2002, such as the DuPont 200 Years car at the 2002 Daytona 500, DuPont Hot Hues at the 2006 Fontana/Indianapolis races, and Cromax Pro at the 2007 Fontana race. DuPont also served as associate sponsors for races like the Pepsi 400, appearing on the side panel as Pepsi adorned the hood; Nicorette and National Guard have also done the same.
At the turn of the decade, Gordon replaced the blue on the DuPont car with black. He won once in the new car at Pocono in 2011. During the year, DuPont's role as Gordon's sponsor decreased as he picked up AARP/Drive to End Hunger for more races; DuPont would serve as a primary sponsor for just 13 races each in 2011 and 2012. In 2012, Gordon and DuPont celebrated their 20-year anniversary with a Sam Bass-designed black-and-red car, followed by a silver scheme for the season-ending race at Homestead, one that would be driven to victory.
After the 2012 season, DuPont Performance Coatings was sold to The Carlyle Group, who rebranded the company as Axalta Coating Systems. The "new" company quickly formed a relationship with Rick Hendrick, becoming the exclusive paint for Hendrick Automotive Group.
With a new name came a slightly different paint scheme for Gordon. Axalta brands Cromax Pro and Imron Elite appeared on track before the main Axalta scheme, doing so at Texas, Talladega, and Darlington before the primary car made its debut at the June Pocono race, where Gordon finished 13th. Another Axalta paint, Standox, sponsored Gordon at the August Michigan race that year. In 2014, Gordon finally broke through to win his first race in an Axalta car at the spring Kansas event, and backed it up with two more wins in the same car at Indy and Michigan.
2015 marked Gordon's final season of full-time NASCAR racing. Axalta sponsored Gordon's car nine times during the year and even brought back the Rainbow Warrior for the Bristol night race. Although he was unable to win a race with Axalta sponsorship that year, a Chase win at Martinsville placed him in championship contention at Homestead, where Axalta unveiled a silver flames paint scheme; after finishing sixth, he ended the points battle with a third-place finish.
With Gordon's retirement, he remained close with Axalta, becoming its global business advisor and a spokesman. Axalta also opened a Customer Experience Center in 2016, located near the Hendrick Motorsports facility.
"I think this is a tremendous tribute to NASCAR and the race teams to have a sponsor as big as Axalta that is willing to put a center like this in the middle of your complex," Hendrick commented. "It says a lot about the way they use the sport and the success they’ve had on and off the track."
Axalta moved to Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s #88 car for the 2016 season. Earnhardt drove the car in five races before stepping aside due to concussion problems. Gordon and Alex Bowman served as Earnhardt's substitutes, both running four races each in an Axalta car. Bowman also drove a University of Michigan scheme at the Pure Michigan 400, the third time a college had partnered with Axalta and HMS (after Texas A&M and Penn State). During Earnhardt's own final season in 2017, his Axalta car featured a new Solar Flare design, which he has driven four times so far.
As a paint provider, Axalta has done so for Hendrick Motorsports and lower series affiliate JR Motorsports (with JRM drivers Regan Smith and William Byron driving Axalta-sponsored cars). Interestingly, Kyle Busch Motorsports also has Axalta as a partner (and can be noted when looking closely at their trucks). Stewart-Haas Racing also started receiving Axalta paint in 2014. Outside of NASCAR, Axalta's Spies Hecker brand provides paint for Mercedes F1, which team principal Toto Wolff has described as being light enough to reduce the weight of the Silver Arrows.
While DuPont had never sponsored a Cup or Truck Series race, it sponsored the first Nationwide race at Iowa in 2013, dubbing it the DuPont Pioneer 250 (won by Trevor Bayne). Axalta, on the other hand, began its sponsorship of races in 2015 with the spring Phoenix Xfinity race. Compared to its predecessor, Axalta had more "unique" race names, like the aforementioned Phoenix race being the Axalta Faster. Tougher. Brighter. 200 (lasting two years) and its first Cup race sponsorship, the 2015 June Pocono race, being the Axalta "We Paint Winners" 400. Ironically, the winner of the first Axalta 400 was not an Axalta driver (Martin Truex Jr.); SHR's Kurt Busch won in 2016. For 2017, Axalta simply named the race the "Axalta presents the Pocono 400".
Truck: winstaronlinegaming.com 400
WinStar World Casino and Resort is an Oklahoma-based, well, casino and resort. Originally known simply as the WinStar Casino, 2009 saw a big year for it as it underwent renovation, renamed itself to WinStar World Casino, and began to dabble in NASCAR race sponsorship with the both of the Truck Series races at Texas Motor Speedway. The first race is a support event for the IndyCar Series, while the second is for the AAA Texas 500 weekend.
Both races use kilometers to determine distance; from 2009 to 2013, they were the WinStar World Casino 400K and 350K; in 2014 and 2015, they became the WinStar World Casino & Resort 400 and 350; in 2016, WinStar withdrew their sponsorships as the races became the Rattlesnake 400 and the Striping Technology 350. For 2017, WinStar's winstaronlinegaming.com became the title sponsor of the June race, branding it the winstaronlinegaming.com 400.
Interesting, WinStar never sponsored a catruck (in the national series, at least) until 2017. At Texas' O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 Cup race, WinStar was an associate sponsor of Landon Cassill, who finished 29th.
Let's go racing.

Race Sponsor Spotlight: Road America/Darlington/Mosport

It's throwback weekend at Darlington Raceway (and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park)! The Cup Series runs the traditional Bojangles' Southern 500, while the Xfinity Series has the VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 and the Trucks battle the Mosport road course in the Chevrolet Silverado 250!
Last week, the Xfinity Series was the lone national series on track, racing its final road course of the season at Road America in the Johnsonville 180.
Road America
Xfinity: Johnsonville 180
Anyone like sausages? They're what Road America sponsor Johnsonville Foods produces.
Johnsonville's involvement in NASCAR seven years before the first Road America event was held (though in the same series). In 2002, the company became an associate sponsor of ST Motorsports (now JTG Daugherty Racing)'s #59 Busch Series car driven by Stacy Compton. In two full seasons with Johnsonville, Compton recorded 22 top-ten finishes and a pole at the 2003 Kentucky race. When ST switched to Ford in 2004, Johnsonville did not return to the team.
Six years after departing ST, the Busch (now Nationwide) Series introduced a race at Road America. In its eight years of existence, the race has been exclusively sponsored by Wisconsin-based companies: mining tool manufacturer Bucyrus, headquartered in South Milwaukee, sponsored the race in 2010 and 2011 (Eau Claire's Menards was co-sponsor); Plymouth cheese maker Sargento was the sponsor in 2012; Johnsonville, based in Sheboygan Falls, became a regular fixture in 2013 with the Johnsonville Sausage 200 presented by Menards. Milwaukee's Gardner Denver sponsored the 2014 Gardner Denver 200 Fired Up by Johnsonville, with the Road America 180 Fired Up by Johnsonville being the race name in 2015 and 2016. For 2017, the race was simply known as the Johnsonville 180.
Darlington/Mosport
Cup: Bojangles' Southern 500
Anyone like fried chicken?
Bojangles' began its sponsorship in NASCAR as early as 1982, when it appeared on the bright yellow #20 of Rick Newsom in four races, with a best finish of 19th at Darlington.. J.D. McDuffie drove a Bojangles'-sponsored car at the 1983 Atlanta spring race, where he finished 36th.
It wouldn't be until the 1990s that Bojangles' made its return to NASCAR, doing so sporadically with Bobby Hillin Jr. and Peter Sospenzo in the Busch Series and Eddie Bierschwale in Cup (1991). In 1993, the restaurant chain formed a partnership with Cale Yarborough Motorsports and Derrike Cope, sponsoring his #55 for the full season; he finished 26th in points. During the year, Jimmy Hensley's #7 was sponsored by Bojangles' in three races (North Wilkesboro, Martinsville, Talladega). Afterwards, Bojangles' pulled its sponsorships and didn't sponsor another car until 2001: Stanton Barrett's #90 Busch Series car. The partnership lasted through the 2004 season, the last of which also featured a one-off at the 2004 Food City 500, where he finished 32nd. Jamey Caudill also drove a Bojangles' vehicle when he piloted the #84 truck in 2002 at South Boston, though he was involved in a crash and finished 34th.
In 2012, Bojangles' took over title sponsorship of the Southern 500 from Showtime, signing a five-year deal with Darlington Raceway. Two years later, a five-year extension was signed.
"Just like Bojangles' famous chicken and biscuits, NASCAR is deeply rooted in the culture of the South," Bojangles' President and CEO Randy Kibler stated in 2012. "We are honored to be sponsoring the only NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in South Carolina, where we have been in business for more than 30 years and operate 110 of our more than 500 restaurants."
Xfinity: VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200
Anyone support veterans or like haircuts?
As its name suggests, the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) supports those who were involved in military conflicts in other countries. Founded in 1899, its first NASCAR sponsorship took place 106 years later in 2005, when it sponsored the #08 truck of Rich Bickle at Mansfield; he finished fifth. During the year, fellow SS-Green Light Racing drivers Sean Murphy and Johnny Chapman also received sponsorship from the fund, though they were unable to score any top-20 finishes. In 2006, VFW itself began sponsoring one-off cars on two fronts: Kraig Kinser in the Truck Series and Joe Nemechek in the Busch Series.
In 2008, VFW formed a partnership with Kevin Harvick Incorporated, sponsoring the #77 of Cale Gale in the Nationwide Series and the #33 of Ron Hornaday Jr. in the Truck Series. Harvick also drove the #33 VFW-sponsored Nationwide car in three races across 2008 and 2009 (Daytona twice and Charlotte). While the Nationwide cars were unable to win races or crack the top five (Harvick recorded its best finish of 10th at Daytona in 2009), Hornaday won twice (2008 at Texas and 2009 at IRP) and clinched the 2009 Truck Series championship at Phoenix while driving his VFW truck.
Sport Clips' first NASCAR sponsorship also took place in a similar timeframe as VFW, doing so at the season-ending 2003 Ford 300 with David Stremme. In 2004, Mike Wallace's #4 GEICO car had Sport Clips as an associate sponsor for much of the season, though Sport Clips was also a primary sponsor on occasion. Hank Parker Jr.'s truck was also sponsored by Sport Clips in two races (Atlanta and Charlotte). In 2005, Nemechek was sponsored by Sport Clips for the February 2005 Daytona Busch race, where he finished seventh.
In 2006, Sport Clips allied with Paul Tracy, sponsoring his #34 Busch Series car and #9 truck; Tracy ran the former in five races, while racing the latter at Texas, where he finished 20th.
In 2009, the barber chain aligned with Joe Gibbs Racing, sponsoring the #20 of Joey Logano in the Nationwide Series. A year later, while continuing to sponsor Logano, Sport Clips also began doing so in the Cup Series with Denny Hamlin's #11; in their first race together at Atlanta, Hamlin won the pole before finishing last after suffering an engine failure. Over the following years, Sport Clips continued sponsoring Hamlin part-time, doing so at Atlanta and Darlington; at the 2012 Atlanta event, Sport Clips won its first Cup race with Hamlin at the wheel. In NASCAR's second series, other drivers who have piloted JGR's Sport Clips cars have included Hamlin, Drew Herring, Elliott Sadler, Erik Jones, Kyle Benjamin, and James Davison. In the Cup Series, Jones and Carl Edwards have also raced with Sport Clip liveries, the latter winning the Texas fall race in 2016 while driving the red-and-white car.
As a race sponsor, VFW sponsored the Michigan Truck race from 2010 to 2013, naming it the VFW 200. Sport Clips, who has been a close supporter of VFW, sponsors the "Help A Hero Scholarship" program alongside Student Veterans of America, which provides veterans with scholarships at post-secondary and trade schools. In 2012, VFW and Sport Clips became the title sponsor of the Darlington Nationwide race, naming it the VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200.
Truck: Chevrolet Silverado 250
Anyone like trucks?
Like the Kansas race in May, Mosport's Truck race is sponsored by a manufacturer; in this case, it's Chevrolet with its Silverado brand. The Silverado was introduced in 1998 to replace the C/K line, one that had been dominating the Craftsman Truck Series' early years; in four years, the C/K had won 65 of 97 races and four consecutive Manufacturer's Championships.
For the 1999 season, the C/K was phased out in favor of the Silverado, which was run by four of the top-ten championship finishers that year: Jack Sprague (Champion), Jay Sauter (5th), Hornaday (7th), and Andy Houston (8th). The Silverado won nine races that year, trailing Ford by three. Over the next three seasons, although Ford and Dodge won the Manufacturer's Championships, Sprague won the driver's title twice during that span. In 2002, Xpress Motorsports' Mike Bliss won the championship in a Silverado, part of an 11-win campaign for Chevrolet as they won their first manufacturer's title since 1998. When Bliss moved into the Busch Series for 2003, Travis Kvapil replaced him in the #16 truck, which once again saw another Driver's Championship. Further Driver's Championship wins would occur in 2007 and 2009 (Hornaday), 2011 (Austin Dillon), 2012 (James Buescher), and 2016 (Johnny Sauter).
In the 19 years since its introduction, the Silverado has won 154 races, including a whopping 15 in 2011 (though just twice in 2014), four Manufacturer's Championships, and nine Driver's Championships.
This season, the Silverado is fielded by seven full-time teams: GMS Racing, MB Motorsports, Copp Motorsports, NEMCO Motorsports, Premium Motorsports, Norm Benning Racing, and TJL Motorsports; Young's Motorsports, JJC Racing, and Niece Motorsports also run Silverados, though they also have other manufacturers.
As a car sponsor, the Silverado appeared on Dennis Setzer's #46 Morgan-Dollar Motorsports truck throughout the entire 2004 and 2005 seasons, during which he won six races and finished second in points both years. In his part-time Truck schedule in 2005, Bobby Labonte's #47 Morgan-Dollar truck also had Silverado logos. Setzer switched numbers to #85 in 2006, while his truck featured a green-and-yellow scheme promoting the Silverado's FlexFuel E85 engine. He finished 13th in the points standings. During the year, Chad McCumbee's #08 was sponsored by the Silverado at Kentucky, where he finished 18th, while Nemechek's #46 also had the same sponsor at Atlanta, where he finished 35th.
In terms of race sponsorship, the Silverado has, unsurprisingly, exclusively sponsored Truck races, first doing so in 2000 with the Chevy Silverado 200 at Nazareth. In 2001, it was increased to three races with the Silverado 350K at Texas and the Chevy Silverado 150 at Phoenix; Nazareth was dropped in 2002, though Texas and Phoenix retained the Silverado sponsorships. Casino Arizona took over sponsorship of the latter race in 2006, reducing Chevrolet to just one event until 2007, when the Daytona race became the Chevy Silverado HD 250. In 2008, the Daytona and Texas races were rebranded to the Chevy Silverado 250 and Chevy Silverado 350K, respectively, before receiving new sponsors in NextEra Energy Resources and WinStar World Casino.
For the inaugural Truck race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, General Motors Canada (whose headquarters are located in nearby Oshawa) took over naming rights of the event, naming it the Chevrolet Silverado 250.
"Really, it was a no-brainer for us, it being in our own backyard," GM spokesman George Saratlic stated. "What better place to showcase our product."
Let's go racing.

[FIGHT PREVIEWS] Guillermo Rigondeaux vs Joseph Agbeko, Akira Yaegashi vs Edgar Sosa, Darren Barker vs Felix Sturm, Paulie Malignaggi vs Zab Judah + more

Friday December 6

From Metro City, Northbridge, Western Australia

Chris John 48(22)-0-3 vs Simpiwe Vetyeka 25(15)-2

12 rounds
WBO featherweight title
WBA super world featherweight title
From what I’ve last heard, this fight is in jeopardy of not happening, but let’s assume it is. Why is this fight a big deal? Well, for one Chris John is leaving his home country to fight. Two, Chris John is approaching a big number: 50 wins. Many have tried and failed trying to reach Marciano’s iconic undefeated record in boxing. Spadafora just recently failed. And three, John did not look good in his last fight and it will be interesting to see how he does. He still claims he’s on the world level, but it will take a very impressive victory to convince me.

From Coliseo Elias Chegwin, Barranquilla, Colombia

Darleys Perez 28(19)-1 vs Dunis Linan 22(16)-23-2

10 rounds
Lightweight division
Hey you remember Darleys Perez, right? He damn near (and to some did) beat Yurirokis Gamboa the last time he was out. Come on, remember… that’s the day Stevenson knocked out Dawson. Seriously, it was a close fight, I remember. Hey 50, you remember right? No? How come no one believes me? I remember clearly. Gamboa fought this tough dude who went down a couple of times, but it was probably from slips and balance issues. He made Gamboa reach all night and countered him pretty nice at times. Seriously guys. Oh well…

Kokugikan, Tokyo, Japan

Akira Yaegashi 18(9)-3 vs Edgar Sosa 49(29)-7

12 rounds
WBC flyweight title
Lineal flyweight title
Yaegashi is the flyweight who beat the flyweight. Of all fights this weekend, this might be the one I’m most excited for. Yaegashi fights in a crowd pleasing style and his fight with Toshiyuki Igarishi was a fight of the year contender. So was his fight with Kazuto Ioka. Sosa may have 7 losses, but this dude is a warrior. This fight should be a true war and I wouldn’t necessarily want to be the winner. The flyweight division has quietly become the most stacked division in boxing. There’s Juan Francisco Estrada, Giovani Segura, Milan Melindo, Giovani Segura, Juan Carlos Reveco, and of course Roman Gonzalez all waiting for a chance to fight the winner.

Naoya Inoue 4(3)-0 vs Jersen Mancio 18(9)-3-3

12 rounds
Light flyweight division
Naoya Inoue belongs on any top prospect list. He’s been fighting for a year and a couple of months, is 20 years old, and debuted against a guy with a 16-4-1 record. Inoue already has some better wins than some beltholders currently out there. Inoue is must watch right now, at least to say you saw him when he was barely coming up. Only Vasyl Lomachenko has had a more impressive pro debut. If Inoue continues to win, a super domestic fight could be brewing between him and Kazuto Ioka.

Ryota Murata 1(1)-0 vs Dave Peterson 13(8)-1

8 rounds
Murata won the Gold medal at the 2012 London Games representing Japan. He’s signed with Top Rank and is being fast tracked toward a title. Like his countryman Naoya Inoue and promotion-mate Vasyl Lomachenko, he debuted against a very capable opponent. He stopped his man in 2 and is looking to give Peterson his second career loss. Murata has the talent to be a future player in the middleweight division.

From UIC Pavilion, Chicago, Illinoi

Kryzsztof Wlodarczyk 48(34)-2-1 vs Giacobbe Fragomeni 31(12)-3-2

12 rounds
WBC cruiserweight title
Wlodarczyk originally won the WBC cruiserweight title from Fragomeni back in 2010. This is their third match against each other. Their first was a draw and the second a TKO for Wlodarczyk. Wlodarczyk’s only real loss was to Steve Cunningham back in 2006.

Andrzej Fonfara 24(14)-2 vs Samuel Miller 26(23)-7

10 rounds
Light heavyweight division

Jonathan Gonzalez 16(13)-0-1 Jaison Palomeque 14(9)-7-1

8 rounds
Light middleweight division
This is the Puerto Rican Jonathan Gonzalez. The one who probably burned some bridges not making weight.

From Little Creek Casino Resort, Shelton, Washington

J’Leon Love 15(8)-0 vs Lajuan Simon 23(12)-4-2

10 rounds
Middleweight division
In his last time out, Love failed to make weight and tested positive for a banned diuretic. His controversial win was changed to a no decision. Unfortunately, it should have been a loss. But now Love is returning against an opponent coming off 2 losses and he’s headlining a ShoBox card. Love is talented. He has yet to do anything truly special in any of his fights, but the dude is talented. I expect an easy victory.

Badou Jack 15(10)-0-1 vs Rogelio Medina 31(25)-4

10 rounds
Super middleweight division
Okay, maybe this is just going to be an episode of ShoBox where we say this is a showcase for Floyd Mayweather’s stable of fighters. Jack previously fought a close fight against solid contender Marco Antonio Periban.

Mickey Bey 18(9)-1-1 vs Carlos Cardenas 20(13)-6-1

10 rounds
Super featherweight division
Last time we saw Bey, he was on his way to an easy decision victory where he looked pretty good. Then he was stopped in dramatic fashion in the 12th. This could have been a title fight if he had won that night, but instead he’s on the rebound against a durable, but beatable opponent.

Luis Arias 7(3)-0 vs Cameron Allen 5(3)-13

8 rounds
Super middleweight division
The winner is likely to face Andre Ward.

Ashley Theophane 33(10)-6-1 vs Robert Osiobe 14(6)-7-4

8 rounds
Welterweight division
Just kidding. Just checking to see if you’re even reading.

Saturday December 7

From Porsche Arena, Stuttgart, Württemberg, Germany

Darren Barker 26(16)-1 vs Felix Sturm 38(17)-3-2

12 rounds
IBF middleweight title
Originally, Felix Sturm was the IBF middleweight champion. Then Daniel Geale upset him in Australia. Then Barker beat Geale on HBO. As the new middleweight champion, here were the options for Darren Barker. A. face fellow middleweight title holder and boogeyman Gennady Golovkin. B. Face another middleweight title holder Peter Quillin. C. Call out Floyd Mayweather. Or… D. Face Felix Sturm in his home country, with the judges likely ever so biased toward him, for more money and less risk than options A or B. Barker made the right choice. Unless, Sturm is about to be reborn in the ring. We shall see. Barker is gritty and has a very solid defense.

From Echo Arena, Liverpool, Mercyside, UK

Liam Smith 15(5)-0-1 vs Mark Thompson 25(15)-3

12 rounds
BBBofC British light middleweight title

Paul Butler 13(7)-0 vs Ruben Montoya 12(8)-1-1

12 rounds
Super flyweight division

Joe Selkirk 11(5)-0 vs Zoltan Sera 12(8)-0

12 rounds
Light middleweight division
Somebody's 0 has got to go.

Stephen Ormond 15(7)-1 vs Derry Mathews 34(19)-8-2

12 rounds
WBO European lightweight title
Here we are again, another fight where Derry Mathews is an underdog. The thing with Mathews is that he’s dangerous at all times. He can box just well enough. He’s got just enough power. He’s an upsetter and Ormond, if he hopes to reach past the domestic level, will need to beat Mathews convincingly.

From WinStar Casino, Tackerville, Oklahoma

Daniel Diaz 20(14)-5-1 vs Robert Marroquin 23(16)-3

10 rounds
Super featherweight
Marroquin is the guy who famously hurt Rigondeaux multiple times in a one-sided fight.

Gilberto Ramirez Sanchez 26(20)-0 vs Don Mouton 12(10)-7-1

10 rounds
Middleweight division
Prospect watch! Keep your eyes on Sanchez.

Alex Saucedo 11(8)-0 vs Gilbert Venegas 12(8)-12-4

6 rounds
Welterweight division
Another prospect watch! I really like Saucedo. He’s still very green, so don’t expect Vasyl Lomachenko.

From Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York

Paulie Malignaggi 32(7)-5 vs Zab Judah 42(29)-8

12 rounds
vacant NABF welterweight title
This is going to be our fight of the week and moneymizzlle will be preparing a longer preview. As for my thoughts, the only real thought I had is that I'm shocked that Paulie only has 7 KO's. I could have sworn he had more. Second, I like Zab in this fight.

Devon Alexander 25(14)-1 vs Shawn Porter 22(14)-0-1

12 rounds
IBF welterweight title
After failing to secure fights with British welterweights Kell Brook & Amir Khan, Devon Alexander returns against up-and-coming welterweight Shawn Porter. At some point, I expect Alexander to be a major player at welterweight. He’s talented, he’s slick, he’s got good sting on his punches, and knows how to adjust his gameplan. Since losing to Timothy Bradley, Alexander has only gotten better. Alexander in this fight not only needs to win, but he needs to show some fire. He needs to show fire and get the fans to want to see him. He’s been labeled as a boring fighter and if he is to ever get a shot at Floyd Mayweather, he’ll need to be someone people want to see consistently.

Erislandy Lara 18(12)-1-2 vs Austin Trout 26(14)-1

12 rounds
Vacant WBA world light middleweight title
This card features 4 of the top slick southpaws in the game. 2 are in this fight. Lara and Trout are fairly similar in style. Don’t expect this to be a brawl. This will be a chess match. Both of these 2 aren’t known for having spectacular offenses. They are both exceptional at making their opponents miss. Trout is coming off a tough split decision loss to Canelo. Lara recently stopped Angulo, but tasted the canvas multiple times.

Sakio Bika 32(21)-5-2 vs Anthony Dirrell 26(22)-0

12 rounds
WBC super middleweight title
This title is really Andre Ward’s. Weird happenings with the WBC made it a vacant title and Sakio Bika won it… Bika is rugged. His style is hard to describe. He has been called dirty in the past. Dirrell will look to outbox him and win on the cards. Bika, despite 5 losses, has never been stopped and he’s been in with the best. If Dirrell can stop him, that would be very impressive.

From Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey

Guillermo Rigondeaux 12(8)-0 vs Joseph Agbeko 29(22)-4

12 rounds
WBA super world super bantamweight title
WBO super bantamweight title
Alright, this is it. Many of you complained about the unfair treatment of Rigondeaux. That he slayed the beast they call Donaire and all he got was the runaround from HBO and the terrible promoter Bob Arum. Now he’s headlining a card in Atlantic City and his opponent is a fun one. Agbeko is a rugged guy who always fights hard. He had terrible luck in his fight with Abner Mares where Mares and referee Russell Mora defeated Agbeko by MD. I doubt Agbeko could ever outbox Rigondeaux, but what he will do it apply pressure. Now, there isn’t much to be said about Rigondeaux that could really summarize why you should watch him. How about… he’s a cross between Neo and a chessmaster.
Sidenote: Who do you think wins in a tag team match, "The Marvelous Ones" Mares & Mora or Smokin Smoger & Alien Hopkins?

James Kirkland 31(27)-1 vs Glen Tapia 20(12)-0

10 rounds
light middleweight division
Glen Tapia was the frontrunner for me this year when it came to the prospect of the year. I’ve since taken him off the list because he’s finally made it to HBO and I think this will be his grand arrival. His opponent is tough. Kirkland, with Ann Wolfe, is one of the most dangerous fighters out there. If Tapia is as legit as I think he is, Kirkland will be upset and Tapia will fight Demetrius Andrade for a junior middleweight title next year. Style-wise, Tapia is a former amateur standout who didn’t achieve as high as his talent probably should have taken him because his style was more suited for the pros. He is a boxer-puncher who can box if he needs to, but his preferred method is to do a bit of banging. Kirkland is an aggressive dude who comes forward. This fight could have a bid for fight of the year.

Matthew Macklin 29(20)-5 vs Lamar Russ 14(7)-0

10 rounds
Middleweight division
Macklin returns against an unbeaten opponent in what may be a win or go home fight for the Irishman. A win could set up a huge fight with Andy Lee in Ireland on St Patricks Day. That would be awesome.

Matt Korobov 21(12)-0 vs Dereck Edwards 26(13)-2-1

8 rounds
Middleweight division

43 Drivers in 43 Days - Day 17 - Nelson Piquet Jr. (Nelsinho)

Nelsinho Piquet. A bit of a more controversial driver, but a great one nonetheless. Good enough (well, sort of) for the hard world of both Formula One and NASCAR, and still decently young.
Jr. was born in 1985 in Heidelberg, West Germany to Triple F1 World Champion Nelson Piquet and Sylvia Tamsma. His parents seperated soon after he was born, and for the first bit of his life, Nelsinho lived in the high-rise world of Monaco with his mother. When he turned 8, his mother decided growing up in a world not surrounding him with fame and fortune would be better, so he went to go live with his father who had finally settled down, retiring from Formula One the year before. He would attend an elite school which provided both American and Brazilian accredited education until he would be 16, when he would go on to race full time
His first ventures in racing were Brazilian karting, which was the order of the day from the moment he moved to Brazil (in 1993) until 2001. Then, he transferred to Formula Three Sudamericana. He would do his 2 seasons in rather dominating fashion. His first year consisted of only 7 out of 17 races, where he would get 5th. His 2002 season was even more amazing, ending up with, out of 17 races, 16 poles and 13 wins, and he would win the championship with 4 races left. It should also be noted that this is his first venture with Piquet Sports, a team set up by elder Piquet to help his son's career (he would drive for them until he graduated to Formula One). His next step was to move to Great Britain, where he would compete in the British Formula Three championship. He would finish 3rd in the championship with 6 wins and 8 poles out of 23 races. He would also take 8th in the Macau GP, 2nd in the Masters of Formula Three race held at Circuit Park Zandevoort, and 3rd in the Korea Super Prix (all prestigious Formula Three races), with his performances winning him a test with the Williams F1 team. His 2004 season went his way, with him winning the championship with 6 wins and 5 poles out of 24 races. He did not do so well in the prestigious F3 races (10th in Macau and 8th at Zandevoort), but he then felt it was time for him to advance. He would also get more tests with Williams
In 2005, Nelsinho went with his father's team to GP2, the final stepping stone before F1. With the additional money required for GP2, Piquet Sports sports would merge with Hitech Racing. His first GP2 season went admirably, if not great, with Nelsinho only finishing 8th in the championship with only 1 win and no pole positions. 2006 went better, but GP2 would be the first series Nelson would compete in full time and not win a championship in his tenure. He would finish 2nd to Briton Lewis Hamilton. But Nelsinho is nothing if not ambitious, so set his sights on F1
By this time, RenaultF1 had lost it's golden boy Fernando Alonso to McLaren, so they brought up one of their test drivers (Heikki Kovalainen) to partner longtime Alonso compatriot Giancarlo Fisichella. To fill the testing absence, Renault would pick up Nelsinho to do the arduous job of testing, where he would complete many thousands of Km of testing. By 2008, Alonso wanted back in with Renault after McLaren went.... poorly is a kind word to use there. Renault looked at their two options (Fisi had signed with Force India) and picked Piquet to be the #2 driver. And with that, Piquet began his career in the world's top level of Open-Wheel racing
His 2008 year was very clearly a development year. Even with the hang-ups giving him a bit of lee-way for it being his first season, RenaultF1 would publically say that he needed to improve. At the end of the season, however, Piquet would shine, scoring a 2nd place at Belgium and a 4th place in Japan in two very well driven races. He would be re-signed for 2009, which didn't go so well. In his 10 races in 2009, he would score 0 points. After the German Grand Prix, he was fired from the team as a result of a falling out between him and his team boss/manager, Flavio Briatore. As a bit of revenge, Nelson revealed a little tidbit of info that showed how Renault had fixed the prior year's Singapore Grand Prix so Alonso could catch up after a Safety Car came out. This would send Briatore into a whirlwind of controversy, and make Piquet manager-less.
After that, Piquet decided to try his hand at NASCAR, first testing for Red Horse Racing at Rockingham Speedway in 2009, who would give him, in the CWTS, a drive at Daytona for the NextEra Energy Resources 250 being sponsored by Websense and ArcSight. Billy Ballew Motorsports would also have him drive for the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte, the WinStar World Casino 400 at Texas, and the VFW 200 at Michigan, sponsored by Graceway Pharmaceuticals and Hope for Haiti. He would also compete in the ARCA series for Eddie Sharp, where he would win the pole position at the Rattlesnake 150.
Coming in to 2011, Kevin Harvick Incorporated would give Piquet his first CWTS full season drive, where he would be sponsored by Qualcomm, Autotrac, Bozzano, and Piquet Realty (of no relation to either Piquet Jr. or Sr.). There, he would score six top 5 positions, ten top 10s, and 10th in the championship. Turner Motorsports would also give him a drive at the Ford 300 in Miami in the Nationwide Series, where he would be sponsored by Bienvenidos a NASCAR, and finish 24th.
In 2012, with the collapse of Kevin Harvick Incorporated, Turner was sufficiently pleased with Piquet's performance to give him another full season in trucks. This year would be even better, with Piquet scoring 2 wins, 3 pole positions, and 7th in the championship. He would also be a road course ringer for Turner in Nationwide, being given a drive in the Sargento 200 at Road America, where he would dominate the race from pole position, to give him his first Nationwide series win. He sufficiently impressed to where he was given a drive at the Food City 250 at Bristol, where he would finish 21st.
Coming in to 2013, Turner decided it fit to move Piquet to a full time Nationwide series schedule. There, he would finish in the Top 10 5 times, and finish 12th in the championship and a 3rd in the Rookie of the Year challenge to Alex Bowman and Kyle Larson. He would also compete in the Kroger 250 and the Ford EcoBoost 200 in the Truck series for Turner Scott and NTS Motorsports respectively.
For 2014, Piquet does not have a contract signed, but his past experiences seem to show him as a good driver that will get signed again, if he just keeps his finger of the “Tweet” button

[MF] [AA] Getting Out Stakes- A short epic that I had to write for class. Any feedback would be appreciated!

This is confusing and long and isn't that good (not really used to writing epic poems), but hey, it's something. Anyway, we had to write an epic poem and this is what I came up with. Tell me what you think.
EDIT: Nevermind, formatting fixed itself. Doesn't really matter either way.
Getting Out Stakes
The Driver
The girl on the radio drawled on about her muse while the knightish gargoyles cloaked my car in darkness as I drove out of the cheap, gated neighborhood where I was temporarily living. Where thirty minutes ago I shot Cassidy White with one of my own antiques, I’m proud to say- a 32 caliber by Smith and Wessen. Great gun, lots of firepower, easily concealed... Great gun, really...
“Beginning GPS waypoint tracking on account 02...Holden, Tennessee.”
The woman on the radio kept talking about some Madre casino, just down the road, too... as if I need my gambling addiction to get even worse. Already spent all my money and lost it. Speaking of, did you know that spending your money and losing it are two different things? You should, it’s a fact. Proven, by yours truly. Over two thousand times at a slot machine.
“Fifty-five minutes to destination.”
See, when you spend money, you get something in return. Goods of some kind, or a service, like my cleaning lady who used to come by every Tuesday. But when you lose money, it doesn’t go anywhere. Well, at least not back in your pocket. It goes on a pipeline, directly to the House- that’s a gamber’s term. Means that the casino gets the money, not you. Yeah, that’s right. All those bright lights and neon signs? Winstar? Cherokee? The gargantuan waste of electricity that is Vegas? It’s all paid for... by the losers.
The House always wins, they say. That’s why Cassidy was at mine- debt. Ten thousand dollars, all spent in a drunken romp, in some casino whose name escapes me down South. He’d been looking for me for a while. And I’d say that’s the long story short, but, heh- a gambling addiction and the aftermath.... it’s never a long story, really.
“Thirty minutes to destination.”
Always ends with some poor sap getting corked with something, perhaps a little higher of a caliber than what I used on Cassidy. I could tell you a lie, tell you some people make it, tell you not everybody dies in this business.
Including me.
But then, of course, I’d be lying. No, the only people who beat the game are the ones who don’t play. One or two trips every three years or so,win some money, maybe the jackpot, and then go home. The addicts aren’t the ones who don’t go home, though. They’re the ones who live in the goddamn casino.
“Fifteen minutes to destination.”
And as for me and Cassidy...believe me, it wasn’t an easy decision to make. Or an easy thing to pull off, for that matter. Still, though, I had to do it. You have to understand, he was going to keep coming. I couldn’t run f-
The car jolted to a halt and the GPS stopped yammering as I hit the brakes hard, the tires screeching painfully against the cracked and broken road as I slowed down fast. The empty, vertical dropoff in front of me where Elmer Bridge used to be and the headlights behind me told me that my story just got a lot shorter.
The Attendant
I’ll make this brief. My name is John Mercer and I’m almost retired. I’ve worked as a security guard at the Dinero Muerto for almost decade now, and, after doing some wetwork jobs for the higher-ups, I guess they liked me enough to promote me to Vault Attendant. That means I guard the Vault. Crazy, huh? Y’know, the big one that the suckers at the craps tables don’t get to see? Every last dime made at the DM is stored there in some form or another. Usually, that means massive piles of money scattered around the room. No, that isn’t an exaggeration- seen it myself. Mountains of cash just thrown around the room in the most haphazard way possible, almost like Sal himself said, “You know what, I think that whoever can break into that Vault deserves some kinda reward before Johnny kills ‘em. So next time just kinda leave the money out in the open, hah?”
The guy talks like he’s a real mobster. Well, he is a real mobster, but most mobsters don’t actually talk like that. I think.Don’t tell him I said that, though. As much as I’ve done for him, I’m still disposable. But not for much longer. After today, he’s not gonna have anything to dispose of. I said I was retiring? Yeah, well, you don’t retire. Not from Sal’s employment. If you get old enough, he just kills you himself so he doesn’t have to keep on paying a fossil who can’t compete with the newbies anymore. In this job, you either die by his stupid fat fists or by some goon during a raid. So how am I getting out? Simple. If he thinks I’m dead, he can’t really do much about it, can he? Nope. Not a single thing. Not a single damn thing.
My pager buzzed twice with the words WHITE DEAD, REPORT as the Vault alarm echoed through the casino.
The Nightowls
I don’t really remember when we got lost. We didn’t really mean to go too far from the house, but, I don’t know. After you drink a lot, things kinda become a big blur. And lots and lots of drinking equals a really, really big blur. My memory is not great right now. At least there weren’t any drugs at this party- I think. Not like last time, otherwise we’d have never gotten outta there. But oh, getting lost. Yeah, I dunno how that happened. I mean, how do you get lost? What’s lost when you’re not trying to get anywhere? Can you even be lost then? Define lost... ...How can you define something?
....Maybe there were drugs at that party.
But, hey, the cops are nowhere to be seen! That’s great. Like, really, really great. Sam looks like he’s doin’ alright. Victoria is doing really great, as usual. They’re as good as they can be, considering the circumstances. After all... Man, there were a lotta cops. Now we’re in the woods somewhere. Better than back at the house, at least. And hey, were people gambling there? I think somebody mighta been. “God, why are we in the woods?”
Now a sound’s ringing in my ears. A short whine, only for a second, then it stops. Victoria thinks she knows where it’s coming from, so I’m following. Suits me fine. Better than being lost, heh. Elmer Bridge is over that way, too, I think.
The Janitors
“Gunshot, but you knew that. .32 caliber, probably from over there...” My partner pointed at a raggedy armchair at the other end of the room. “...a clean shot to the chest.” He picked up the spent casing with his tweezers and put it in his bag. We had arrived maybe forty minutes ago at the guy’s last known location. Some junky-looking, walled-off apartment complex by a gas station. Almost missed the damn thing. It doesn’t really stand out, if you know what I mean. There are five other almost identical apartment complexes like it within a few hundred feet, all of which are listed under the same address for some reason. And it doesn’t help that the guy we’re tracking isn’t a moron, either. Rented the room with false credentials, used cash. Cash from the casino, mind you, so tracing it doesn’t do us any good. Just takes us back to the place where we fucking work. Big help, asshole.
“Hey Mark, whaddaya want with these?” Don had finished searching the body and now held up two charred toothpicks that looked like they’d been thrown in a fire.
“What are they, fags?”
“Looks like it. Really burnt, though.” He stood up from his crouch, delicately brushing off his suit.
“I don’t see a fireplace.”
“Yup.”
“So how did they get burnt?”
“..What?”
“I said, how did they get burnt? Nobody’s stupid enough to use a lighter on the entire freaking cigarette.” Instinctively, I reached in my pocket for the Lucky’s I always carry.
He was one step ahead of me, smoke already billowing from his stick. “Oh. ...Dunno. Maybe they lit a fire.” He took a long drag, closing his eyes for a second.
I caught up with him, tar filling my lungs as I put the fag to my mouth, inhaling. Cigarettes always helped me calm down, think more straightly. Straight. Straightly? Think...more....straightly...or straight? Fuck. Maybe I shouldn’t have accepted that kid’s offer. God, I think that pill I took was drug. Great. There were drugs at that party.
“You okay ?” Don looked at me with some concern showing on his normally blank face.
“Yeah, yea-ah...f-fine. Look, is..is that all? The evidence and all that, I mean.” I was getting nervous. The more I stayed in that room the more tempted I was to look at White’s sprawled-out corpse in the second armchair next to me.
He scratched his head worryingly and did a three-sixty, scanning the room. “Well...I think so.”
“You think so? We’re goddamn Cleaners, Don. Leave no trace and all that sphiel. You sure we got everything?”
He looked about the floor nervously, chewing on the end of his cig.
Well?” I knew what he was doing. He’d been trying to not look at the ceiling for the past few minutes. I gestured at him, made a noise. He got the message and looked back at the floor, worriedly.
“I-I’m just looking....” He stared at one spot for second. “.....wait.”
He bent down and tried to pick up something I couldn’t see, pinching his fingers together unsuccessfully a few times. He managed to grab it on the third try and held it up to the light.
Clenched tight between his fingers was a short, dark brown hair.
I moved closer to get a better look. “Holy shit.”
Don spit his cig on the floor and absent-mindedly ground it out with his heel, then looked at the hair again, confused. “What?”
“Cassidy was a redhead, right?”
The Boss
The cigar jutted out from his reddened lips like an iceberg that had sunk too many ships and was now worn down because of it. Smoke blew not only from it, but also from his entire mouth, toward the fan at the far end of the room, which in turn gave the entire place a hazy, fog-like visual effect.
The door opened shortly after Sal’s sixteenth puff. The V.A. stumbled inside, gasping for breath, gun drawn. The smoke choked out whatever words he had prepared and he started coughing violently. Sal turned around in his chair, looking away from the monitors for a moment.
He spoke with great difficulty as a mouthful of fumes erupted from what the Attendant could only assume was the general region of his face. If Sal hadn’t been serious, the sight might’ve been amusing.
“Mercer, good. How’s our vault doing?”
John paused, opening the office door the catch his breath for a minute. He returned to the room at Sal’s silent insistence (he had a way of telling you something without saying it, and that something was usually hurry) and spoke, barely.
“Sir...the vault is...well...”
“Speak up.”
“I..”
Sal pulled out what looked like a .44 revolver from his suit and pointed it at Mercer’s forehead.
“Speak up.”
“EMPTY. IT’S EMPTY, SIR.” He braced himself.
Sal thought for a moment and then started laughing- a hollow, deep chuckle that was muffled slightly by his trying to keep the cigar between his lips.
“...Empty? Empty? You’re telling me that the most secure cash depository within a hundred miles of this city has been broken into, all the contents stolen, and the culprit left without a trace? And under your supervision, no less?” The answer Sal wanted was not the answer Mercer or anyone else had.
The Attendant was trying to choose his words carefully. “Well, almost, sir...you see, although the vault was secure, and although it was broken into-”
Sal tightened his grip on the gun and cocked it with his free hand, slowly.
“-not everything was stolen, though! Not everything was stolen! And there is a trace! We know who did it, we know, sir!” His teeth were gritted and his eyes were closed. He opened one temporarily too see what Sal was doing.
He relaxed his grip on the gun slightly and scowled. “How much was stolen, Mercer? I need an exact amount.”
The Attendant made a quick glance at the computer screens on the wall in front of Sal. They showed various feeds from around the casino, a few body cameras from the guards. Twitching, he looked toward the lowest left monitor. The screen was filled with an image of two men in dirty suits standing around a corpse, talking. A ceiling view. Four other suits were now crowding around them, lifting the dead one by his limbs and starting to carry him out of the apartment. The two immobile suits handed them plastic bags as they left.
They just stood there, smoking.
C’mon.
“Mercer...”
C’mon..
“Do you want me to shoot you, Mercer? Because you’re getting really, really fucking close.” Sal sneered as his teeth clenched, crushing the cigar.
They’re still fucking standing there.
MERCER!” Sal peered down the ironsights from where he sat, finger quivering.
Suit number two spit out his cigarette and stamped on it as Sal fired two shots at the chest of the nervous figure standing at the entryway to the office. Mercer turned toward the door as the bullets carved their way through the smokescreen and smashed into his side. They hit their mark and he crumpled against the door, gun still in hand.
Sal stood up, throwing the gun down, fuming.
Suit number two dropped his bent Lucky’s package and bent down to retrieve it as the casino alarms sounded and the crumpled figure shot Sal Foreman in the temple mid-stride.
His bulk crashed to the ground, eyes rolling back. The two suits were now barricading the apartment door with two old armchairs and a desk while John Mercer was dying. He sent a message through his pager and passed out as guards flooded the office.
The Plan
The van outside blew up violently as four bricks of C4 were detonated remotely under it. The four Cleaners carrying the deceased were incinerated, along with all evidence of Cassidy’s murder. The firelight penetrated the walls of the apartment that Mark
I haven't finished the rest. Any feedback or comments are welcome, I'd like this to be good for when I turn it in.
