"Hey, back'er down. You gotta turn around"

Just when I think I have seen it all, NASCAR partners up with another product that makes me giggle (not in a bad way, this is pretty funny). I was playing around on Twitter and came across a blog entry that NASCAR Nuts and Bolts did.

For $229, you can own a GPS navigation device featuring the voice of Dale Earnhardt Jr. RightWay GPS is releasing "The Spotter" in May and it will be available at, Best Buy and Radio Shack. Dale will guide you to your destination with key phrases such as "Hey, back'er down. You gotta turn around", “In one mile, hang a right.” and, “Park it. We’re here.”. It comes pre-loaded with NASCAR and Dale Jr. points of interest including: NASCAR tracks, NASCAR parks and a tour of NASCAR race shops/garages in Charlotte. You also have the ability to have a GPS pointer in the following images: Amp Energy car, National Guard car or the Team Hauler as the GPS pointer.
I wonder if Dale will go all crazy on you if you don't follow his directions. Or as RadicalBender stated below, he may threaten to hit you with a hammer if you turn the wrong way. Maybe you could sympathize with Tony Eury Jr. I must admit, I would love to get my hands on one of these. Hearing Juniors voice is much better than the computer animated ones all the other systems have. I personally yell at my GPS lady who I named Betty, whose voice I eventually turned off. I can see it now, driving down the highway and screaming "SHUT UP JUNE-BUG".

I wonder if it will space out occasionally and make you miss your turn or threaten to hit you with a hammer if you turn the wrong way.

That is hilarious. I am adding the hammer part to the story!

BTW, forgot to mention. RadicalBender = Restrictor Plated, not just some random person. :)

OMG that is truly to much. I love Junior but I would turn him off.
I love reading you blog ladies.
