Robert Taylor / LASTCAR Charity Auction Update!

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in last week's LASTCAR Charity Auction, including everyone who bid, and Jayski for promoting it, and of course artist Robert Taylor for contributing his incredible works!

Thanks to you, we raised $72.00 to benefit research for Parkinson's Disease through a donation to the Michael J. Fox Foundation!

To the winner of the auction, your drawings will be in the mail this afternoon along with your code for a free copy of my first LASTCAR book.

Happy Holidays, everyone, and stay tuned as we count down the final 50 days before the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona and the sixth season of LASTCAR!

LASTCAR Charity Auction! - Now Through December 23!

I am thrilled to announce an exciting new charity auction on eBay presented by myself and motorsports artist Robert Taylor!

Recall those three drawings Robert did for the Homestead posts of Michael McDowell, Jeff Green, and Chris Lafferty?  Now you can bid on the original drawings!  The auction can be found right here.

As reported here in October, Robert Taylor is an inspiring artist.  He suffered from Parkinson's Disease in 2005, which for a time prevented him from doing his artwork.  But, thanks to new treatments, he is churning out artwork more than ever before!  In honor of Robert's journey, I am offering three of his works for sale with 100% of the proceeds to be given to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research!

The winner of the auction will receive the following:

*Three original 10.5" x 14" drawings of Michael McDowell (#98 Phil Parsons Racing Ford), Jeff Green (#10 TriStar Motorsports Toyota) and Chris Lafferty (#0 Koma Unwind Chevrolet), all signed by Robert Taylor.

*PLUS a letter with a code for a FREE copy of my eBook “LASTCAR: The First Year-By-Year Chronicle of Last-Place Finishers in the NASCAR Cup Series (1949-2013).”

There is no reserve price, free standard shipping, so what are you waiting for?  Place your bid today and pick up a unique one-of-a-kind memento of LASTCAR history!

Formulast One: Statistics About the First Retirements of Grand Prix (1950-2013) - ON SALE NOW!

I am pleased to announce the release of another new last-place book, and my first non-NASCAR volume.  This is “Formulast One!”

For those of you who visited this site in 2012, the material in this book was originally on a second website of the same name.  The site used a similar format to LASTCAR, only it dealt with the last-place finishers of Formula One races.  Unfortunately, the site did not take off, so I decided to take it down and publish the statistics in their own book.

The good news is that for $2.99, you can now get those statistics and more!

*A complete annotated season-by-season, race-by-race list of the last-place finishers of every Formula One event run from 1950 through the present, organized by date, listing the driver’s nation of origin, car number, chassis and engine manufacturer, and indicating how many last-place finishes each driver had scored to that point.

*Season-ending rankings showing which driver(s) scored the most last-place finishes at the end of each season.

*Rankings originally published on “Formulast One,” now current through the 2013 season, which rank the most finishes by driver, country, chassis manufacturer, and engine manufacturer.

For $2.99, you can download my book to your computer on or in virtually any format, including Microsoft Word and PDF, at  Both web sites include a free sample of my book that can be downloaded on any device.

And, just like my other three books, those who purchase this book will also have it updated for free at the end of the 2014 season.

So, if you’d like a little something different, be sure to pick this one up!
