Old News: Navy SEALS. Today's News: NASCAR

NASCAR Publishing Romance Novels... | The Huffington Post: "Strange bedfellows, indeed. Or maybe not. If it's true that opposites attract, then a licensing agreement between Harlequin Romance novels and NASCAR Inc., should be a marriage made in heaven. The first offspring of this new union, a racetrack romance entitled In the Groove by Pamela Britton, goes on sale Tuesday -- just a few weeks before the Daytona 500 on Feb. 19. Two other NASCAR-themed love stories will be published this year: On the Edge by Britton in September and A NASCAR Holiday by Kimberly Raye, Roxanne St. Claire and Debra Webb in November. At least 17 more, by various authors, are planned for 2007.

'It's a partnership between two extremely brand-loyal groups,' says Kerry Tharp of NASCAR. 'We're trying to reach out and do more to appeal to our female fan base.'"

Jackie's going to be very unhappy about the Navy SEAL thing.

I just hope she doesn't shoot the messenger, especially as I'm going to have to tell her this came from you, Bill.

Maybe she can learn to love the NASCAR guys.

I'll buy one if they title it Lube Job For Laura.

Probably John Dexter did that one for Nightstand did that one back in the '60s.
