    2021 Hall of Fame Nominees

    IMO there's no way that he should even make it the ballot. He's got 4 cup wins, all on restrictor plates, and his career in the booth can't be regarded as anymore than mediocre.

    Short Track iRacing Challenge 4/6 - 4/8

    I'm guessing it has something to do with the network being that he's employed by one (is it fox or nbc?) I like how Letarte said he selected Kyle for the the peacock because he showed the most consistency by finishing 3rd in both races.....how about the guy that finished 2nd in both????? I...

    NASCAR and the Coronavirus

    At some point they are going to have to take a serious look at running racing without fans if they want to get all these in. I could see them running for a couple weeks before they allow fans back.

    2021 Hall of Fame Nominees

    IMO anyone who doesn't think JR is a first ballot should probably get their head examined. However many consecutive years of most popular driver, couple 500 wins, 2 xfinity titles, couple more titles as an xfinity owner plus what hes done since leaving the car (Dale jr download and up in the...

    2021 Hall of Fame Nominees

    Glad I'm not the one voting. At this point I don't see Edwards making it. He did great things while in the sport, but since retiring early no one has heard from him.

    RACE thread ---- iRacing at Bristol

    Like I said I like the guy, but I don't who you are some of his actions on or off the track have been detrimental to his progression. Honestly I can't for the life of me see how he doesn't pull some major sponsorship from somewhere, I mean how great of a story would it be to be part of a...

    RACE thread ---- iRacing at Bristol

    Well didn't he actually start out in KBM equipment? Not sure you could get anymore top-tier than that. I like Bubba, but man alive he needs to get his poop in a group. He comes out saying he has depression, then goes on the Dale Jr download and says hes not getting treatment for it, then goes...

    Old races to rewatch while we're postponed

    Been watching old Bristol races. It kinda cool to see how the track has changed over the years. Conveyor belt on the bottom, progressive banking, grinding the top groove, and now the sticky stuff. Personally I preferred the progressive banking, I think it made for the best racing. Just...

    Tonight, iRacing Saturday Night Thunder at Bristol 4/4/2020

    I watched it tonight, it was entertainment. Kinda nice not having commercial breaks. I think Iracing will definitely have more followers coming out of this, but I still dont see it being significant competition for the real thing. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    '21 Generation 7 Car news

    I guess this opens up a lot of things that will need to be addressed. Will there still be an engineering freeze til the new car? How many chassis will they allow going forward? IMO I think keeping the teams limited as much as possible will keep more teams in the sport, but on the other hand...

    Nascar fans life style changes

    The company I work for provides parts and services for several essential industries, so my work schedule hasn't changed much. However travel has become worse. Planes are nearly empty and flights get cancelled without notice. Hotels basically want you doing nothing besides going directly...

    What are you missing most about the 2020 NASCAR season as it’s on hiatus?

    Actually its the daily discussion about the race on the radio. I drive an hour each way to work everyday and usually listened to the NASCAR channel for at least half of that. Good or bad discussion at least they were talking about the sport I like.

    But if you just keep taking it you end up like Joey with everyone running you over and using you up

    It would be nice if they had someone other than Denny on race hub prior to the race..... Someone else has to have a webcam Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Old races to rewatch while we're postponed

    Man watching these old races I think we all forget how bulletproof cars are now. Just watched one were someone broke a camshaft. A camshaft? When's the last time you heard that? Some many of these races seemed like more of a war of attrition than anything. Blown motors, transmission failures...

    2021 Silly Season

    I think 1 year contracts are more a sign of the sponsorship climate than anything. Look at some of the talent in the sport that are in their last year and haven't been locked down yet. 10 years ago that would have never happened. Also look from the sponsorship side how many full season...
