The 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Schedule for Google Calendar and iCal


The NASCAR season is almost here and being able to add the NASCAR season calendar to your personal calendar will help you keep track of when and where the races are. I already have the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series calendar and the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series calendar up so I had to finish the major races out by adding the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series calendar as well. Well, here it is! Just like with the other two calendars, there are four ways to get the calendar:
  1. Under Other Calendars, put the address ma6fajhcneccmhm49ovkrmpohc@group.calendar.google.com in the "Add a friend's calendar" box and it will automatically be added to you Google calendar.
  2. You can download the iCal file from my Google Drive. The iCal file can be uploaded into any calendar product that supports the iCal format. A list of programs that this can be used with can be found on Wikipedia.
  3. You can view the calendar on the Internet.
  4. You can embed the calendar on your site by pasting the code listed below onto it.

This is just a basic calendar setup but it includes the race name, which TV station it will be on (FOX SPORTS 1 AND FOX), which radio station will be airing the race (MRN), date, time, and location of the race. If you happen to notice any errors or issues please let me know in the comments below.

The 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Schedule for Google Calendar and iCal


Well, it's that time of year again where the cold is settling in, football is ending, and the engines are warming up. The 2014 NASCAR season is almost upon us and with all the changes that have been taking place with teams and drivers as well as the new qualifying rules, you will want to know when the races are so you can enjoy every minute. I have finally finished the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series calendar and made it live in Google calendars as well as the bottom of this blog. I made it a lot simpler to get this year as well. There are four ways to get the calendar:
  1. Under Other Calendars, put the address maunaak1bfgugljm6ppreaknlg@group.calendar.google.com in the "Add a friend's calendar" box and it will automatically be added to you Google calendar.
  2. You can download the iCal file from my Google Drive. The iCal file can be uploaded into any calendar product that supports the iCal format. A list of programs that this can be used with can be found on Wikipedia.
  3. You can view the calendar on the Internet.
  4. You can embed the calendar on your site by pasting the code listed below onto it.

NASCAR Sprint Cup 2013 Schedule for Google Calendar


I am a huge fan of NASCAR and love to either watch the race on TV or listen to it on the radio if I am out doing other things. It is always hard to remember when the races are, though, so I thought I would look for the NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule to put on my Google Calendar. The Tampa Bay Rays have their schedule that can be put on to the Google Calendar so why not NASCAR, right? Wrong! I searched and searched for the Calendar feed but could never find it. I did a search through Google to see if anyone had thoughts on how to incorporate it into Google Calendar and still nothing. So I did what any fan would do - I downloaded the schedule in Excel form from NASCAR directly and then modified it for Google Calendar.

I present to you the NASCAR Sprint Cup 2013 Schedule!! This is just a basic calendar setup but it includes the race name, which TV station it will be on (FOX, ESPN, NBC, etc), which radio station will be airing the race (PRN or MRN), date, time, and location of the race. If you happen to notice any errors or issues please let me know in the comments below.

Now the important part - installing the schedule to your Calendar. I use Google Calendar for everything since it syncs across all of my devices but the file you need to import is a .csv file, I am sure you can attach it to most calendars out there. Just be sure to realize that this was designed for Google Calendars.

  1. Download the NASCAR Sprint Cup 2013 Schedule .csv file
  2. Open Google Calendars
  3. Click the drop down box mark Other calendars
  4. Select Import calendar
  5. Click Choose file and then locate the NASCAR_SprintCup_2013.csv file. Click Open
  6. Select which Google Calendar you would like this to fall under. I created a separate NASCAR Calendar to put this under for now.
I am also working on the NASCAR Nationwide Series 2013 Schedule and will post that when it is done. If there any other calendars you would like to see, let me know in the comments below. Comments and Thanks are always appreciated.

Netflix "Just for Kids" now on the iPad


Netflix announced on October 1, 2012 that the kids friendly "Just for Kids" experience is now available on the iPad app. This great feature of Netflix only shows kid friendly shows such as iCarly, SpongeBob SquarePants, Good Luck Charlie, and so much more. Shows from Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, Cartoon Network and more are at your child's fingertips with no fear of them clicking on content designed for older audiences (i.e. - Jurassic Park, Die Hard, and others).

This feature has been available for some time on the Wii and computer but if you have an iPad you know your kids love to watch movies on it. Now that the "Just for Kids" experience is part of the Netflix app when it is updated, I have no worries that they will click on a more adult show. Thank you Netflix for this great addition and check out the video above for more information on this feature.
