Speedlinking: Taylor Swift on SNL and CMA's, GM expanding, and NASCAR.

Welcome to another edition of speedlinking. I have to admit, I love creating a speedlinking post, it spreads the word not about some interesting and/or helpfull articles that I am reading, but maybe sharing some other blogs that you didn't know about or haven't read in a while.

One of the biggest headlines over the last week has been 19 year old Taylor Swift. Most readers of RaceDriven.com already know that I am a huge fan of Taylor Swift, so it should be no surprise that she is in here. I am also talking GM and NASCAR.

1. REPORT: GM to let rejected dealers apply for new franchises - the reason why I bring this up is I think General Motors is going the wrong way. They have shut out several people world wide with their taking Federal Bailout money and then finally doing bankruptcy and leaving us with their debt. I'm not going to go into specifics, but they have already stopped the sale of Opel, Saturn wasn't sold and it will fall it Pontiac instead. What are they doing, going back to the company of old?

2. Taylor Swift holds her own hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time.

3. Review: Survivor Samoa - Tastes Like Chicken - If you haven't been watching Survivor, you are missing a good season. yes it started out a little slow, but Evil Russell just will not leave. I have to say that he is palying the game hands down. he has found two immunity idols with no clues. Judging by the preview of next week, all hell is going to break loss as Russell searches for a third idol as everyone else chases him. I have to say that Evil Russell has one more piece of business before he gets eliminated because we all know he will, get Laura out first.

4. Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum takes top honors at the 2009 CMA Awards. I'm still shocked that Taylor Swift won Entertainer of the Year, she deserves it.

5. Financial filing offers rare glimpse into NASCAR sanctioning stipulations - Interesting reading if its true, but keep in mind that NASCAR isn't Formula 1.

6. Modern Muscle Comparo - Personally, I love the look of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro and the 2009 Dodge Challenger, however while I love the look if the 2009 Ford Mustang, I don't like the new 2010 Ford Mustang. The look, styling just isn't there for me.
