a saying from one of my favorite Presidents;
"If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business.
I do the very best I know how - the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end.
If the end brings me out all right, what's said against me won't amount to anything.
If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference."

Jayski also covers notes about Jayski faves like the Snowball Derby and Atlantic City Indoor Races. BUT mainly a SPRINT CUP SERIES site.........NO Plans to expand to other series. I cover what got me into the doing the site in 1996, Sprint Cup Series News. Rumors and Stats.

Questions concerning donations of equipment or software to Victory Junction and the Jayski Computer Lab should be directed to the folks at victoryjunction.org, thanks. Jayski still supports Victory Junction and the computer lab.
If you see news, rumors, links, images other stuff not posted on Jayski
feel free to email them to Jayski [do not NOT send to me on twitter or Facebook, ONLY email]
cannot and will not guarantee that it will get posted as I do not 'JUST POST IT'.
have a link or say what the source is, do not respond to questions on drivers plans, anything I know is posted.
I find yahoo and gmail account with silly names to be among the worse sources.
not interested in comments or complaints about the sport
take that up with NASCAR - see my Racing FAQ for their contact info....thanks
PETITIONS...NO: I do NOT post petitions or any sort
I DO NOT critique websites, webpage, blogs, etc
I do NOT post birthday's from anyone/fans but drivers, crew members, and Jayski's family and friends
One Man Show...sort of: just a tad of info about me, Jayski. I run, code, update, add images and design the Jayski NASCAR Sprint Cup site MYSELF. I ran the site by myself entirely until the start of 2005, when Scott came aboard. There no office [my home], staff, people [peeps], reporters, stats folks - Jayski does most the work on the Sprint Cup site myself and while ESPN owns the site, it is still controlled and run by Jayski....with a lot of help from Mark and Scott as well as help from ESPN's Ted Bishop and others. Scott handles the majority of my Nationwide site, Jay & Scott handle Truck site and other pages [contest, appearances, etc]. Scott takes over for me if I have someplace to go [Doc appointment, dentist, errands, shopping, vacation]. ESPN.com [started in 2005] handles my advertising and houses my site on their server and as of March 2007, owns the site, but I have control over content and still own Jayski LLC. I the best business manager out there, Mark Garrow [PRN broadcaster] who handles advertising and business deals so I can concentrate on the site content. Any advertising content sent to me, will be forwarded to Mark. More about me on my About Jayski page and THANK YOU for reading and supporting the site!

Sending Article / Column / Story / Blog Links: to submit fan or other articles / column / blog links, etc, please see my article link sending guidelines on my NASCAR Article Links page and THEN email the links in correct form to Jayski and Scott. Will consider some blogs, but many of them will not get linked or posted especially if the grammer/spelling is poor, it is just a rewrite from a press release, it is negative against a driver / NASCAR or is vulgar.
When sending info on an article, news or column you found, include the LINK, not the whole story, without a link, I cannot use it.
Problems or issues with NASCAR? or questions to them? You need to direct those questions to NASCAR. I follow and adapt to the rules and do not fret about changes. Best bet is to see the NASCAR Contact Info on my Racing FAQ/Contact NASCAR page
DO NOT HAVE: I do NOT have any NASCAR Officials [like Brian France or Mike Helton] email addresses and do NOT forward email to NASCAR.
COMPLAINTS about ESPN.com or TV coverage on ESPN can be directed to them at ESPN - contact info, I have no inside info on the TV coverage, how it works and do not run the ESPN.com's NASCAR site, so complaints and Kudos to them please. Psst...they all do an awesome job!
Problem with TV Coverage or lack of? contact the network, info on my Media Contact page, not getting NASCAR Coverage? contact your local cable provider or station, not me.
AT&T Text Message Alerts ended after the 2008 season. AT&T decided not to continue with the cool Jayski alerts. And after the 2010 season, Sprint decided not to offer them any longer.
BUT Jayski.com does use Twitter and Facebook but just for links, some race updates during the race and highlights, nothing will be posted there that cannot be found at JAYSKI.COM. All comments on the Jayski Silly Season SIte Facebook, will be deleted, to much NASCAR and driver hate/bashing, which I dl not condone or support.
If you wish to send/email a paint scheme / car image please, see my Paint Scheme Gallery - Sending Image Guidelines section [do NOT send driver shots, helmets, images with people in them or crash images.....haulers are ok]
Old Video Recordings/DVD's of races that aired on TV? looking for these? Sorry, I have no access to them, do not keep recordings of races, do not give, trade or sell any [don't have them to do so] and do not know where u can find them. Ideas would be to try eBay.com, google.com, the NASCAR.com store. Also see my Bookstore/Video page or try some Tape Trader Forums on my Message Board/Forums links page to see what is there.
SORRY - I do NOT sponsor teams, drivers, sims or other sites:
I get many requests from teams/drivers [not Cup] from all over the country asking me to sponsor their car. Sorry, it is not something I wish to do and not something I can afford. I have had teams place decals [I don't have any] on their cars, such as Rich Woodland in ARCA, he is a personal friend. I sponsored the Bandalero of Jason Haynes in 2005-2006 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Jason's Mom, Dad and crew chief Kurt, maintained and helped my Bandalero in my ill-fated 2004 try at racing and this is my way of repaying their kindness and efforts. Feel free to make a Jayski.com logo and put it on your car, just do not send me the bill....lol
