David Fallavollita

David Fallavollita You need a encyclopedia to look up how many names I have…. Fallavollita, Follow the leader, fajita, velveda, fav, hollahollaholla, etc…. or you can just call me Dave.

- Sports is all I know… and well food…. When I am not talking sports or trying to dissect stories for the FAN and KRLD… I am cooking great meals while also preparing for food eating competitions

- You might call me the “NASCAR Yankee”…. I can talk NASCAR with you all day long… Texas Motor Speedway is the meca

- Originally from Arlington… but I am the radio by play voice of the Wylie East RAIDERS

- I’ve once been described as “rangy” by RAGE

- Member of the Fan since its “inception” (great movie) back in 2008

- the quickest way to my heart is to make a Pizza Hut Big Dinner Box appear, preferably with Italian sausage and mushrooms

Rantin’ & Racin’: It Ain’t Over Till The Fat Lady…

Rantin’ & Racin’: The Itch Felt Around The World

What Clint Bowyer thought was a harmless little “itch” is actually a lot more than that. NASCAR has come down hard on Michael Waltrip Racing for their late race actions in Saturday’s last race of the chase.

Rantin’ & Racin': And Down The Stretch They Come

Saturday night the NASCAR “regular season” ends. After 26 races the 12 man Chase for the Sprint Cup field will be set. What’s the beauty of Saturday night’s race? We still don’t know the full field of competitors for the Cup.

Rantin’ & Racin’: Who’s The Favorite To Win The Sprint Cup Championship?

Every week, after watching and studying what just happened in that Sunday’s race, I seem to be contemplating a new favorite for the Sprint Cup Championship. Jimmie Johnson, or Matt Kenseth, no wait Kasey Kahne, maybe Stewart’s found his groove

Rantin’ & Racin’: Not Bad For A Big Ogre
