OK, I’m not scholarly enough to see if there is any connection between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and NASCAR.
So I consulted Dr. I.M. Smarty, Chair of the Trivial Knowledge Department at Mugwump State (home of the Flying Squirrels), for his opinion.
Dr. Smarty said there is indeed a strong connection between Trump’s bid for the White House and NASCAR races.
In both endeavors, torrents of sound are a Thunder Dome cascade of noise that pushes past eardrums and enters brains.
With so many brains fried, now you know why Trump is running away with the GOP race after his dominant performance in South Carolina Saturday.
And now you know why so few NASCAR fans are working on their doctorates at Harvard or Yale.
Yep, there is nothing wrong in Trump Wonderland right now, not a cloud in the sky.
Ditto NASCAR, which often is a cure for insomnia with its boring and endless races.
But not Sunday when Denny Hamlin nosed out Martin Truex Jr. by inches to win the closest Daytona 500 ever.
You don’t have to be Dr. Smarty or Nostradamus to predict that the Republican presidential race will not have a similar photo finish.
