Is there an ongoing thread for each track somewhere? I need some advice about my first trip to Bristol this coming season.
Paging @AndyMarquisLive and @dpkimmel2001 call on line one.
@Jeff Turner , which race, spring or fall? Where are you coming from? Do you already have tickets?
Going to the night race in the Fall, driving up from Atlanta with 2 of my little ones.
Really just want advice on where I should try to sit and what is a good place to spend the night afterwards, preferably in my direction.
I'd spend the night in either Knoxville or Asheville. Asheville's a little closer Bristol and I-26 has a bit less traffic on a Saturday night. Start with either of those towns and check hotels getting progressively closer on I-26 / I-81. Usually anything within 30 minutes is out of my price range, but your wallet may vary.
Stadium Super Trucks to join NASCAR Cup weekend at Texas
When I think of Trucks, I think of Trophy Trucks -- and I guess Robby Gordon has brought a version to Stadium. When I was down in Baja, I head Robby Gordon's name a few times.
The motorcycles are awesome, but the Trophy Trucks are amazing.
I honestly had no clue there was even a Drive for Diversity class in NASCAR.
Mentions of the #4's spoiler were up too.
There has been for a few years.
Did Hamlin's crew chief quit because Kyle gets preferential treatment or
because he got tired of Denny messing everything up with all his penalties?
There were some races that I thought only Harvick was racing. Didn't matter if he as 1st or 31st it was all they talked about. I would really like to see a stat showing how many times during those races they said his name.
I feel the same, only replace Harvick with Larson.
Pretty powerful picture here. I like it.
People forget how good Kasey was early in his career. I really think his health issues started awhile ago and played a big part in his downfall.
Outstanding picture. I give it a 10.
I'd see that movie
Since Kurt Busch car 1 announcement occurred i thought Suarez to the 41 announcement
would have followed about 2 days later.
That has not happened. What do we think we can read into that?
Not much. Paperwork takes time.
only thing I can think of is that SHR kinda thumbs their nose in the past about making announcements. They took forever to say if Kurt was going to race last year. Suarez has been making personal appearances for a SHR sponsor though FWIW.
Well, I hope you gents are right.
As for the paperwork, it seems they've had about a month to do that.
I think it was thought that Daniel was heading about a month ago.
And no reason to think anything else.
Glad to hear that.

Just imagine of they raced on the roval when it was covered in snow! Drivers sliding off the track and into each other and what not. Wild.
Track Sweeper @TrackSweeper
The new Snowval at @CLTMotorSpdwy! @NASCAR
^ that looks better than my highways and streets do this time of year.
Of course we cheat and use studded snow tires.
Haulers are back
Adding to the above post:
Back to the old way of selling merchandise. I think those trailers were great back when we were allowed to travel to the USA and see races live.
Well it looks like now they are making us wait till sometime in January......jeez.
Yes, the way it should be. The Fanatics tent at the track was an epic fail. The merchandise haulers were always a part of our day when attending a race. There were many times however that we walked right by the Fanatics compound with no desire to enter.
I am pretty sure @aunty dive will approve of this
And yes, it should be ready for when it 12days till the Daytona 500
Any idea why the car number is on the first sheet, separate from the rest of the side panel decal on the second sheet? Doesn't that make it harder to position the number properly on the door?
Separate names with a comma.
