I like Nascar,NTPA,NHRA,I love the ability to Inovate.I manufacture
parts for all these series.When they take that away they will hurt
themselves and just be another circus event.

I watch a couple races but not like I used to. Watching the Shootout now and if this is how it's going to be, I predict no more than 12 cars finish the 500 next week.

I'm no fan of Kyle Busch, but you can't deny his talent. A well earned win today.

I like it, smaller tracks, martinsville, dover, bristol, charllote. But the best racing one can watch is a local hometown track. Something like this. Racing my limited latemodel.

I'm strictly a fan of open wheel racing. From Midgets and Sprints on up to Indy and Formula one, if they are open wheel, I'm for it.

Yeah, the Shootout was a Beat-em-up kinda night. THROTTLEBODIES :shock: ????? When did they stop using carbs :?:
I think the rear spoiler is too big, why don't they make it smaller for the fast tracks. Easy way to make more wrecks!
Now they'll come out with a new rule that you can't touch the left rear bumper of the car in front of you!
Gordon looks good upside down :clap:

Any NASCAR Fans out there? Who's your favorite driver?

I used to go to 2 or 3 races a year. I havn't been to a race in 4 years now. NASCAR has become a "show" not a race.It's minulaped and you can almost predict the outcome before the race has even started.But I still like to watch them.

I live very close to NHIS, so now Danika will be some "Eye Candy With Attitude" instead of a Tide Baseball Cap on your head!
More hype than racin'. Welcome to 30 seconds of racing, 2 minutes of commercials on the TV side of things.
Makes jobs, and gives folks a focus that isn't political. :idea:

PS: Owners and management here are absolutely outstanding to the community and organizations. VERY GOOD NEIGHBORS! A Class Act!
Now if we could get the NHRA....... :idea:

It may not be what some would like it to be, but it is all I got so I enjoy it for what it is. You cannot beat the smell, and feeling of the thunder when you go.

I get to hear the engines roar all the time thru the woods. in season dont know whats worse the crows noise or the crows flyin few miles thru the woods...

was a regular race goer when i had the texaco's and ricky rudd flew thier flag..

we just lost dr matoli who owned and started pocono. he was a great man.


nascar is all hype these days. F-1 is my fave although John Force and the go fast guys is also a fave.
