I don't think I knew he was ill before now. I wish him all the best.
Joey Gase tribute car honoring Sam Bass at Richmond.
May be the only die-cast the #66 ever sells.
I would like to see these kind of interviews, but I can never figure out when and what channel they will be on. With multiple daily shows and multiple pre race broadcast I find it impossible to watch all of them, heck I only get to see a few once in a while.
BTW, that helmet is a Chase Elliott helmet. Blaney said they had and agreement to swap first win helmets.
So who wore the Stewart-Haas bucket in the middle?
I'd say Tony it says Smoke on the sides and is signed by him.
I was curious what would come of that contact lol
Who's been to New Hampshire? How far up do you need to sit to see the whole race track?
I have been there, but sat between turns 1 and 2 about 15 rows up. No problem seeing the whole track.
Atlanta slashing ticket prices. I'm shocked. Why, how can this happen?
AMS announces more affordable ticket pricing for 2020 NASCAR weekend
I am glad to see this. When I went in February I paid over $100 for a ticket on the front stretch and it was not a prime seat. Hopefully along with the new date, this will help get a few more fans to that track. Atlanta is one of my favorite tracks.
Another change for Nascar, this one being Sonoma, they are going to run the carousel (hairpin) the shaded portion on the right
Good read, raises a lot of questions
Ryan: Kyle Busch has been the best, but is his Cup sword the sharpest?
Was it already announced that they're going to run 9A instead of 9?
Reading a bit more he provides this interesting tidbit.
"According to statistics provided by Smith on his Positive Regression podcast with Alan Cavanna, cars lining up on the outside retained positions 93% of the time while those on the inside kept their spots at a rate of only 9%."
I watched Blaney almost always start on the inside lane and drop a position or two. This is the kind of track where deciding at the "cone" which lane the driver starts in makes sense. Otherwise a team can actually be penalized by having a good pit stop or rewarded by having a bad stop.
They oughta put horns in the cars. I know, random. That's why it's here lol.. really tho.. could be useful.
Tony Stewart on Cup qualifying, team ownership and sprint car racing
Watching Barrett Jackson, and Rick Hendrick just bought Dale Earnhardt's #8 Goodwrench Nova he raced in the Busch Series in '86. Pretty cool. Sold for $190k
Not hating on NASCAR, but I found it funny that they keep doing these 4 wide salutes & the 5 wide salute they had a few races ago..
Guess they wanna be more like WoO because their racing is much better.
Pretty awesome race last night. I didn't mind Truex getting his first ST win and loved watching Kyle struggle once he got back to the top 5. Of course it was great seeing 2/3 of "Team Penske"
running up front. What's up with that Buescher running top 10 all day and gets a 22nd place finish?? That team seems to be on the verge of some good finishes.
JTG has Hendrick engines instead of RCR now. The 37 has been fairly competitive in a quite a few races.
I have noticed that, I just never thought the engine itself would make that much difference.
It sure hasn't helped the HMS car this season.
That reminds me, whatever happened to Runner from the old Hardee's ads?
They aren't. That picture looks like the IndyCar configuration.
I had it wrong, here's a photo from Nascar's site. down hill thru 6a, back up thru turn 7
Looks like they were able to pull alongside each other without dirty air preventing it, but they need to work on sideforce.
Meanwhile Jimmie fell behind early and there weren't enough yellows to get the Lucky Dog or wavearound. But seriously, he has my respect. I've never done any more than a half marathon, and it wasn't in race conditions. He maintained a 7 minute pace for the full 26. At his age, that's impressive.
I might finish a marathon in 13 DAYS. LOL
Way to go, Jimmie.
Lots of changes to New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Sounds cool
New Hampshire Motor Speedway announces fan improvements
I assume they aren't running 9a and the shorter turn 11.
Post 20550 has the correct course
Just caught that. Good lookin
