Best of RaceDriven.com of the 2000s

Hi, my name is Brian Vermette and I started RaceDriven.com almost five years ago, March 12, 2005 to be specific and since RaceDriven is being upgrading from a personal blog to a niche blog on January 4, 2010, where I will blog on NASCAR and the Auto Industry, I though a best of 2000 was in order. These are the articles and postings that are simply the best of the best on RaceDriven.com in this decade.

Cruise Night Car Show featuring Jack Roush at Imperial Ford in Mendon, Massachusetts. Best article of 2009, most traffic, most exposed including being listed on the dealership’s website and Roush Performances blog. Most incredible event of the 2009 and I took it in with my sister and brother-in. I couldn’t believe I meant Jack Roush. If you haven’t read this article and you’re a car enthusiast, it’s a must read.

Highlights from the 2007 Barrett-Jackson including an all new record of 5 million dollar bid for a Shelby Cobra. The most expensive car hammered away in Barrett-Jackson history, a $5 Million dollar Shelby Cobra owned by Carroll Shelby.

Emotions, Emotions, Emotions – Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin as Clint Bowyer wins the 400 at Richmond. If you’re a NASCAR fan, you remember watching back at Richmond 2008 when Kyle Busch took out Dale Earnhardt Jr., in turn made Kyle Busch famous and a NASCAR bad boy.

Taylor Swift does it again with her performance of “Should’ve Said No” at the 2008 ACM Awards.

How we got rid of our junk car. & Can you really afford not to check your auto insurance policy regularly? These two articles go hand in hand, with the junk cars, it’s a personal experience of getting rid of my junk car that I will never forget. The second is a encore of my first article on car insurance back in 2008. It turned out to be on premium article that explains everything.

From the garage to the pits: The Best Seat in the House in New Hampshire. My first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in person and sitting on top of Kevin Harvick’s pit box.

My Take: Dale Jr. will be driving the #88 Mountain Dew, Amp Energy & National Guard Chevrolet for Hendick Motorsports in 2008. Dale Earnhardt Jr. leaves DEI to join Hendrick Motorsports to drive the #88 Chevrolet.

NASCAR penalized Kurt Busch for last weeks Dover pitroad incident, not suspended. A bad call by NASCAR period.

800hp biodiesel 65 Chevy Impala on Pimp My Ride.. Most searched posting on RaceDriven.com.

New England Intl Auto Show: Camp Jeep and Gillette Bike. Camp Jeep, you get driven around a course in a Jeep, cool experience, it left me breathless and speechless.
