    Getting into short/dirt track racing

    Costs and time were the main reason we didn't run karts for very long. We always wanted to field something competitive but he worked out of town far too often to maintain it. Dad and I do many things together but now that he's retiring I'm hoping we can commit to our shared dream of racing. If...

    Getting into short/dirt track racing

    @gone Thank you for a very detailed post this is exactly what I was hoping for when I posted this. 311 speedway would be my home track/track I would attend most often if and when we start running. I've looked over the rules and you're right on the money when you say it's a crap shoot if you want...

    What Do you Think of the New Package?

    If NASCAR mandated spec car based on the early-mid 90s cars (Gen 4 as they call it now) with better driver safety and only a nose to differentiate the various makes how would you guys feel about it? It would come along with several rule changes to put adjustments back into each teams hands to...

    Yea, it's a hard call to make for sure. When the jet dryer got taken out they spent hours attempting to get the finish in and the fans that attended were pretty burnt out by the time they did. I can't remember how late it was but IIRC it was 1 or 2am before most of them went home.

    It's still raining all around Daytona. I got the impression they didn't want to risk drying it again only to lose the track as soon as they got it ready. Most of the field was out of the race and the fans had already been there a day longer than they expected. I would have loved to see it finish...

    Nascar can't go a week without making fools out of themselfs

    I for one am happy they don't start the races at 11am anymore and so is everyone else that attends Sunday service. Someone is going to complain no matter what they do.

    He's obviously no count, all 30 of those top ten finishes in the truck series were flukes.

    I've seen a lot of "fans" of various things get outraged on twitter over the years. I tend not to pay much attention to them anymore because they are almost always a vocal minority with an agenda. Not saying that's true for everything but the folks on twitter are certainly not worth listening to...

    2019 –Kentucky Quaker State 400-- Pre-Race Thread

    Where do you prefer to sit? Do you get a hotel for the weekend or do you camp? I've never stayed in the infield before but I think I might change things up for this race.

    I don't know about the other two but I'm positive they'll let Michael into the HOF at some point just due to the circumstances of his Daytona 500 win.

    2019 –Kentucky Quaker State 400-- Pre-Race Thread

    Have you guys been to this track before? I'm thinking about going next year because it's close-ish to where I live and I've never visited the state. How's the track in person?

    Remember This Name-Justin Haley

    Same but I think he'll get a shot with a bigger team in the future. He's an K&N series champ, has done decent in the truck series (30+ top tens, 3 wins, and a pole) and he's still young. He's put in the butt time and I'm happy to see a kid like that get a cup win.

    Rate The Cup Race: Daytona 2

    7 Serious answer for sure. I was worried we'd see a parade after seeing the Fords team up during stage 1 but the racing was really good before the weather moved in. I haven't been a big fan of this package and I hate what stage racing has done to the sport but that 50 laps or so before the...

    My driver is going to win at the Glen for sure.

    As someone that lived in the area for years: Sometimes it's obvious that it won't stop raining for days. I haven't looked at the radar but I can understand why they called it if it doesn't look like the rain will clear within an hour or so. Florida is just like this in the summer time. As much...

    I don't think it's a PR crisis. If anything it'll be presented as a feel good story about a young kid getting lucky. Kurt isn't the most well liked driver either so not many will care he got "screwed" by NASCAR. If it were an Earnhardt I could see an out roar but not many people are going to go...

    Probably NBCSN but I haven't seen anything official. For those of you that can't get it on cable I'm sure you can find a stream. I know a lot of people are concerned about viruses but there are some good ones still out there now that youtube has gotten rid of most of them. There are still guys...

    Why is everyone so butthurt about this kid maybe getting a win due to rain delay? We've seen countless people that "didn't deserve the win" snag one like this over the years. The best thing for NASCAR to do is: 1. Call the race and award him the win 2. Attempt to finish the race...
