    The Greatest Day in Racing...(probably going to have spoilers in it)

    Man.... blown away by today's action. Just superb racing. Today has always been The Greatest Day in Racing... but the 2022 edition might REALLY be the best we've seen. Monaco was wayyyy above average. Indy was also way above average with the top 2 entering turn 1 on the last lap...

    Moving/Penske Truck

    @dpkimmel2001 @Nitro Dude and anyone else with experience driving big trucks. I'm renting a 16ft Penske box truck for my cross-country move I'm taking next week. It's a long haul...Connecticut to Indianapolis to see the speedway museum, then to Bismarck, ND, and finally to the destination of...

    Horror Crash at Waterford Speedbowl

    Terrible terrible incident this evening with a modified clearing the turn three wall and getting into the catch fence. The car miraculously stayed on the track-side. Word is section(s) of the fence went down onto people in the pits. We saw at least 6 ambulances, cop cars, fire trucks, etc...

    Car Guys/Mechanics- Transmission Fluid

    Hi all, I've got a 2009 Rav4 with 110,000 miles on it. I bought it used and it has had a history of tranny issues (burning fluid and original owner went too long without changing it). I got the car at 85,000 miles, and my mechanic just did a drain and fill on the transmission fluid at...

    New Hampshire Motor Speedway....get the coffin, nails, and hammer?

    https://racedayct.com/2020/11/full-throttle-weekend-gone-at-nhms-whelen-mod-tour-currently-not-on-2021-track-schedule/ So if I say New Hampshire Motor Speedway most board members will either think of Jeff Burton leading all 300 laps the year they ran plates, or you'll think of "The Modifieds"...

    Slow down the cars at Indy

    Too many tire failures for NASCAR/Goodyear not to take action before next season's race. Corner speeds of 170+ on this surface and these flat corners is just too much for the tires. I don't think a harder tire is a viable solution as that would kill the racing (more so, although yesterday was...

    Midweek races not working....

    https://www.jayski.com/2020/06/13/martinsville-tv-ratings-3/ I find it hard to imagine midweek races are here to stay if this is the case, especially once other sports start up again. But kudos to NASCAR for trying something.

    Texas 2 Bonehead

    The non-traction traction compound. Gossage should pay for those wrecked racecars. Followed by the guy who left the tire on the ground for the #4 team (but I guess it turned into a non-factor).

    Take my 5 minute survey (for college, not profit)

    Hi all, I'm looking for as many responses as I can get for a project in one of my Marketing classes for college. The topic is on your perceptions on winter coat brands. You do not have to be familiar with all the brands to take it. The only requirement is that you are over 18. No personal...

    Fantasyland/Opinion Game- Shorten 1 Race Lengthen Another

    Pick one race you would like to see shorter and another race you would like to see longer. Lengthen- Bristol, even though it's 500 laps the lap times are so quick it's one of the shorter races on the schedule and almost always finishes in less than 3 hours. I'd like to see something of a...

    Lap Times

    While "The Package" (take a drink) has not produced the best racing, imo, it has been interesting to see the less hp and high downforce have an effect on lap times. Example was this past weekend at Bristol, where a new track record was set. I am really looking forward to Dover, where I think...

    What Do you Think of the New Package?

    Ok ok ok...one race in I know...but there's definitely some themes I picked up on. As far as air-goes...the cars were super stable today even in a pack. I think this was evident by no accidents due to on-track crashes. I miss cars being lose. Speaking of lose...Kyle Larson should have spun...

    NHMS Short Track Extravaganza (Modified Christmas)

    Get pumped!!!! :headbang: Tickets are $40 for the weekend. $10 Friday, $35 Saturday if purchased separately. Based on the disparity in ticket prices me thinks everybody will qualify Friday and run all the features Saturday. I think $40 for the weekend is a steal, given Thompson has been...

    Does Logano get in the playoffs???

    51 points separates the #22 from the 16th spot in points, occupied by Matt Kenseth. Remember when the 22 team was on fire at the beginning of the season? Top 5 finishes week after week after week after week...til Richmond. Then it was 20th on back finish after 20th on back finish. The...

    Indycar's Return Return to New Hampshire

    From a local racing reporter up here...talking to the NHMS general manager... With the loss of the second Cup race and the failure of the Boston event it *kinda* makes sense.
