Mike Helton without a mustache is just plain weird
Why watch rerun races? Unless your a young'n & have not seen them before you already know who the winner is.
I stay busy in my workshop, no weekend racing = more time for R&D working on my perpetual motion device.
If you happen to have a pilots license for flying a desk every day suggest that you borrow a shovel & plant a tree.
Apologies to the board for the above I watched a George Carlin show last night I am cynical this AM.
You could catch me in a Chargers one playing NASCAR 94 on Sega Saturn after I had watched Top Gun with my Dad for the 50th time.The races during the tire wars are fascinating! The 1988 600 was absolute carnage! It nearly killed Buddy Baker, cost Rick Wilson a likely win (dominant car) and escalated/popularized the Bodine/Earnhardt feud.....
I love watching races from my young kid days. I remember them in context but obviously didn't absurd a lot of things past a typical 6-10 year old level. I still remember having all my NASCAR matchbox cars/hot wheels/winner circle ones etc. out creating my own race while it was on tv. During football season I'd have my Hutch NFL uniform on and run into walls. I'd still due both if it was socially acceptable at my age...lol
I just watched a rerun a couple of weeks ago of that one and the one that Danica almost won.1989 Indy 500, Emmo vs Little Al Battle! Also, arguably the greatest intro ever into a motorsports telecast. ABC used the "Delta Force" theme for several years in the late 80's, early 90's but they were all a little different. The '89 rendition is the "Grand Daddy of Them All". Take 4 minutes and watch it. Your day will be better for it. This is the IMS official youtube channel so the quality is topnotch.
Petty won again.This thread brings to mind the old days of taping races on the VCR and starting every conversation (until I got a chance to watch it) with DON'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE RACE!!!!!!!!!!
On that note...…......……. DON'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE RACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s incredible isn’t it. It’s the only reason I’m not totally against the “new package”. The engineering improvements in racing have gotten to the point where we can reliably hit 220 with 750 HP and a small spoiler at Michigan and 202 at Charlotte.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, power steering failures, brake issue......

RR says he was entered but withdrew.(did you know during that Riverside race Rick Hendrick said Paul Newman was going to race for HMS at Watkins Glen?)
