The Great American Race

I know some of you don't like oval racing, no problem.

For those of you that do, who's your driver this weekend? I love all kinds of motorsports, from bikes to boats to oval to rally. But, nothing beats Daytona or Talladega, IMO. 43 cars in a pack, 3 wide, 195 mph door to door is f'n nuts. And it's LOUD.

Never been to an oval race..... I work the Long Beach Grand Prix every yr, but I would definitely like to see a Nascar race in person.

YA THINK???

#8, #8, #8, #8...enough said.

Glad to see the racing season underway. I'm also excited to watch T. Labonte, Wallace, and Martin in their last full season of Cup. These guys are part of that crew that made this sport. Martin is the only one without a championship (of the 3) and a good ole boy...I'll be pulling for him all year. The "kids" will have their chance, this is Martin's last.

I am a Roush fan all the way - Michigan IS Roush country - 6, 16, 17, 97 & 99 all the way. I do like the ol' # 88 and of course the # 8 as well. We started a pool for this weekend - should make it interesting. Just like football squares...

I was betting the races last season, makes it interesting. But, you may as well just throw your money away doing that, at least w/ squares you have a shot. lol

You either love it or hate it. I don't watch the whole season, but I definitely watch the super speedways, Daytona and Talladega. I had a whole new respect once I drove one at Texas Motor Speedway. It's f'n nuts.

It's hard to get into it until you go to one. We sat in turn one at Texas Motor Speedway a couple years, it's unreal. Even w/a headset on (so my redneck azz can listen to the drivers and spotters), it's still ridiculously loud. 195 in, 180 out of the turns, bumper to bumper.

I went to Phoenix when I lived out there, it wasn't nearly as much fun..too small/slow, IMO.

Tomorrow I'll have it BLARING. My girlfriend will be hating life.
