There are just 10 days left for massive Shocktober savings. If you haven’t already taken advantage of it, now is the time. If you buy 4 qualified Monroe shocks or struts, you get a rebate for one of them. That’s a free auto part folks! Does life get any better? Now, you may be asking yourself:
How do I know if I need shocks/struts? If your shocks/struts have over 50,000 miles on them – they are likely worn out. In that mileage, a shock/strut has cycled up and down 87.5 MILLION times.
Where is the rebate form? You can download it right here: Shocktober Rebate Form

We were able to sit down and chat with Ryan Blaney on Monday morning about his week in Kentucky.
Ryan challenged Kyle Busch for the lead during the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, and brought home a top five finish in both the truck series and the Nationwide series.
While getting my nightly fix of gear head TV, this AutoTrader.com Dukes of Hazzard commercial suddenly appeared before my eyes.
As a guy that grew up watching Bo and Luke Duke shoot a bow and arrow out of the window of an orange 69 Dodge Charger while out-running the law , it was great to see the old general at it again!
Dale Earnhardt’s win in Pocono last week marked his second win this season, it also marks the first time in ten years that Dale Jr. has had more than one win in a season.
With about ten-ta-go!, Dale Jr. laid the hammer down and passed Brad Keselowski who was having and issue with a piece of debris on the front of his car at the time. The 88 took full advantage of the situation, got to the front and was able to pedal the throttle once the nose of his Chevy has some clean air to to breath.
Restarts were downright crazy, as we saw the pack go 4 and 5 wide in an attempt to gain track position. It seemed as though if you could get your car out front, it was hard for the cars that were behind you in the dirty air to gain ground and pass.
The boys will be in Michigan this weekend which also happens to be a track that Dale Jr. runs very well at. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the 88 get a back-to-back win this weekend.

Americans have always been fascinated with souping-up and hot rodding cars. To honor this tradition, the U.S. Postal Service has decided to release a limited-edition Hot Rods Forever Stamp.
The stamps were unveiled on Friday June 6th at the National Street Rod Association (NSRA) Nationals East plus Conference in York, PA. Each of the stamps feature a 32 Ford “Deuce” roadster.
Barry Meguiar, a lifelong hot rod enthusiast and owner of “Meguiar’s Car Wax”, helped to unveil the new stamps that can now be purchased through the U.S. Post Office.
We were invited to do an interview with Barry of Friday, where he told us a little bit about these new stamps and also took a few questions from blog hosts Tony and Jeremy.
