I wish that instead of bashing motorsports we should celebrate them with great stories like these. Nothing is perfect, but almost every weekend we can go somewhere and enjoy an incredible motorsports experience. I think we should celebrate that.
I said an audible “holy shit” when he drove it in that deep and it stuck. He drove in 6 car lengths deeper than Truex. Smart move by the #22 team. Stats show that there’s usually a caution with 20 or so to go, so they set their car up to run like a scalded dog for 20 laps.
I think the winner take all thing came from Johnson being so good in the Chase he won 5 in a row and ran away with several of them. NASCAR has been reacting to the last few years and changing the format based on the previous years results. What we’re left with a one race sprint to determine a champion. It might work…
Rick Allen messing that up in race really drove me nuts. He sometimes gets too excited for his own good. Accuracy should never trump excitement.
Honestly I love the idea of a teardown rule like many local classes have to keep things honest and keep prices down.
I’ve heard alot of this throughout the week. NASCAR fans are mostly gearheads who appreciate the work that goes into the sport. People want to see, with photo and video evidence, what NASCAR found on the #4. Show the other teams what they did as well. Be more transparent with the whole process and it might make it…
By week 3 someone will have what is in definition not a sucker car, but behaves much like one. Then what? They’re not technically breaking the rule but they’re achieving exactly what you’re trying to eliminate?
Now you have me curious... Post Qualifying that might be the case. Then, if they did not make a qualifying run they it reverts to points.
points. Driver higher in the points standings is higher on the grid.
Parker Kligerman is carving out a nice little broadcasting career after not being able to find a full time NASCAR ride. He’s a fantastic pit reporter for NBC’s live broadcasts. I’ll be interested to see how he does here.
Husets Speedway used to be the crown jewel of SD dirt tracks. This asshole bought it, priced it out of the market, and then couldn’t figure out how to make a profit on it. Now, it seems like it might go away completely and I’m sad about it. Growing up as a racing enthusiast in SD was tough. There were very few places…
I could be wrong but I think the drivers asked for the tire barrier on the exit of the chicane. They wanted a visual reference as to where the exit of the chicane was.
I found it very interesting that with the lack of prior notes or knowledge of the track there were something like 8 Chevys that qualified in the the top 10. There were speculations in the booth that maybe Chevys simulator had done a better job of getting these teams and drivers prepared. Interesting to think about…
If that’s the case Talledega would have been off the schedule years ago.
The mix of the road course and oval showed a stark difference in driving ability throughout the field, in a way only NASCAR could: Some drivers, the ones more familiar with road racing, were fantastic on the road course and lost loads of time on the oval. Others closed in on cars ahead of them on the oval and then…
I don’t subscribe to the idea that these drivers are “weak” at road courses. This isn’t the 1980s anymore. They get tons of simulator time, go to driving schools, etc to keep their road racing skills sharp.
Yep. Word on the street is that they might have already signed Truex and Bass Pro. If JGR is going to charge you an arm and a leg, take your driver and sponsor, how can you continue?
Yes, Matt’s Bar has Juicy Lucy’s, but you know what?? Juicy Lucy’s are fine and only fine. It’s lava hot cheese that comes shooting out at you after the first bite.
I rented a 2107 Electra Glide Ultra a couple of months ago and like the infotainment screen on it, however the Nav took a long time to boot up. Once it did, it was fairly easy to program and quite accurate. This version sounds even better.
speed is the enemy of long distance riding. When you’re in the elements the faster you go the more wind blast there is, the more fuel you use, etc. To go long distances takes efficiency. Minimizing stops, getting the best fuel mileage you can, and proper routing.
