    Pre-season media day, Daytona 500 media day, playoff media day, Homestead media day...It's no wonder why these guys look completely annoyed by the time the awards banquet and all the stuff that comes with that rolls around.

    Charlie Spencer Short tracks and road courses rule.

    It's the same with most sports' media days, esp. at the beginning or end of a season. The media pools are chock full of twits who don't normally cover a given sport, don't know squat about it, and expect those involved to waste time giving them an introduction to it.

    "Hey, that 'Chase' thing is starting! It's a slow day on the society beat; reassign Bobby to cover it"

    Yall see that Kyle Busch went partying with some of the young guns the night before media day and nursed a hell of a hangover during media day? Samatha said he passed out in the elevator in the hotel and there are photos of him laying on the ground during pressers.

    I live here and as soon as they announced the date, I knew I wasn't going. :eek:

    The forecast temperatures for this weekend are actually about 5 degrees warmer than usual. But at this point in my life, I wouldn't even want to sit out in ~94 degree weather. I spent enough time during my career working outside in temperature extremes, I'm okay with limiting my exposure nowadays. :)

    At least it's a dry heat! :D

    A dry heat still feels like an oven

    Coming from Utah I would have went if the hotel prices weren't still pretty sky high.

    Dry heat isn't terrible though compared to the eastern humidity. At least the racing will be better in the daytime than night.

    We're planning on making Sonoma next year but the other western races aren't in the wife's 2 month vacation window. I gotta talk her into retiring. :D

    You know Starcom is a small team because had they had to bring their Darlington Throw back car because of the wreck Monday at Indy.

    Absolutely love the look of Bowman’s car. When I was younger and my parents got me into NASCAR, Mark Martin was my favorite driver and always loved the look of the Valvoline cars. Wish that was his primary scheme. First post here, happy to have found a solid NASCAR forum!
