    Across the border is one thing. I just think logistically it's too difficult/costly to justify going overseas. But I guess if China wants to open up the wallet, they may consider it

    I figure it is just a way to find out if there is an interest in NASCAR style racing. I can see a NASCAR style series in Asia, probably a branding deal. But I don't think any future series will be part of the current series.

    It is remarkable the impact branding and culture have in different parts of the world. Levi's jeans are the be all and end all in some areas all because of a little orange or red tag and some people will swill the worst tasting beer around just because of how it is marketed and packaged. Buick automobiles are a status symbol in China and in the US and other places the brand and version of your phone is of the utmost importance. IDK if it is the marketing that has made people so shallow or that people are so shallow they are easy to manipulate.

    Oh, they weren't the best races by any stretch, but having them in Japan didn't cause anyone to heat up tar and cut open Grandma's feather bed.

    That clip proves that it isn't US NASCAR. They are racing in the rain.



    (Its a joke about the rain delays we've experienced lately before you jump in and reply that NASCAR has rain tires for road courses).

    Makes you wonder how spoiled we are. What if what we have is actually cool to somebody else. Might temper the bitching just a bit I think. I follow WRC, and those fans actually talk about the racing. Side by side, attendance, and TV ratings are irrelevant. Cars, drivers, courses are the topics of the day. Imagine that.....I should add that there are plenty of fanbois who get roasted, however. Warms my heart.

    I'm fine with NASCAR starting a new racing series in China.

    That said, NASCAR should not host a points-paying Cup/Xfinity/truck race overseas.

    Drivers and crews in the top 3 series should not have to travel overseas to participate in a required race.

    After the cluster I fear the Roval race will be, a Chinese road course would look good.

    Not sure that the teams will like the expenses and travel time required to race in China. Particularly when teams are complaining about travel costs already and have even formed the Race Team Alliance to supposedly do something about it...

    They also complain that the season is already too long... will NASCAR cut an existing race to fit a China race in?

    This will be a series like they have with the Pinty, and Whelen Euro or the Mexico series. A stand a one series with their own stars. If it comes to fruition.

    NASCAR steps up international push, eyes China and Brazil
    NASCAR is stepping up its international expansion efforts, including ambitions to start developmental series in China and Brazil, as the sanctioning body eyes the NBA’s model to grow the sport overseas.

    Over the last several weeks, NASCAR has moved three executives to new international roles: Jim Cassidy, chief international officer; Chad Seigler, vice president of international business development; and Jimmy Small, senior director of international
    business development. Small, who was formerly president of the NASCAR-owned Iowa Speedway, will be based in Los Angeles and focus on China and Mexico.

    While getting into new markets such as China and Brazil is a priority, NASCAR is also focused on improving its existing international series. Cassidy cited a crowd of more than 50,000 that was on hand in Mexico City for the NASCAR Peak Mexico Series finale in November as proof that NASCAR’s international efforts are catching on.
    Cassidy noted that if not for the Mexico Series, Suarez may have opted for open-wheel racing. That’s traditionally been the preferred form of racing in Mexico, which has produced several Formula One drivers over the years.

    It would almost be worth it it, wouldn't it? If you ask me the ONE defining moment when NASCAR jumped the shark, it would THAT. If I had never seen a NASCAR race before, and tuned in and heard that, I'd have the channel changed before the cars got to turn one, and I actually LIKE Darrell as a person....

    I think the name is "Win One Soon" driver of the 36 horsepower, decaled skin braced (really just throw it away with the used skin after the collapsing event ) Jiangnan TT.
    Note: Horsepower is actually measured in units of Greyhound Chihuahua, not horse.

    Oh, wait a minute. You originally said Buick, but I mentally heard 'Oldsmobile'. I can never keep straight which one of them was discontinuted.

    Some marketing pukes at GM probably would have had a cow, but I could never tell any difference between Buicks, Olds, and Caddys. To me, they're all land yachts driven by blue-haired AARP members peering under the steering wheel, along with Chryslers and Lincolns. But then, I was never much of a car guy.

    You probably have no idea how many Buicks GM is making and selling in China. 8 to 1 ratio. There's no need to make that case with drivers in China, where Buick, outsells Honda, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
