Those sissy NASCAR boys drive at 150 - 200 mph for 3+ hours nonstop, with 40 other cars on the road.

But it must be really tough to drive at 320 mph for 5 seconds. In a straight line. By yourself. :rolleyes:

It should be a good NASCAR season, When will Toyota win their first race? How will Tony Stewart race in a Toyota? Will Jr. make the chase? Will Villeneuve race cup? And how will he do? How many times will Robby Gordon crash? Will team Penske get back to winning ways? When will Tony Stewart punch Kyle Busch? Will Michael Waltrip make a race in 08? And when will JJ announce his LOVE for Jeff and ask him for his hand in marriage and run off to Massachusetts?:rolleyes:

yes tony and gibbs will win some races!! toyota finally has some good drivers and they will throw a boatload(not an MC i mean like the queen mary) of money at Gibbs!! plus the COT helps them catch up!!! waltrip and his losers picked the wrong year to start teams. they should have waited till this year when all cars are the "same". instead not they are stcuk with crappy points from last year!!!!

all you JR fans better be ready!! he only has one excuse for not winning left now!! if he does not do well this year say adios to his cousin and he will get a decent crew chief!!!!

Hey boys be nice to my man Jeffie!! Can't wait for race season to start again. You can bet I'll be glued to my TV on Sun. Feb. 17. I even got myself a Jeff Gordon cardboard man so we can take him with us camping to the tracks. We are trying to figure out how to handle a four month old baby and the Brickyard 400 this year. That is the track we'd like to go to this year. Anyone want to babysit a four month old for five days so MOM and DAD can go to the Brickyard? J/K

I wondered about that at the Brickyard. I probably wouldn't go for that reason. Charlotte is a real nice, fan-friendly track. I hear Bristol is awesome if you can get tickets and don't mind long hilly hikes from the parking lot. If I ever go to another NASCAR race, it will probably be Atlanta.

Here's a few pics (not that great) from the Dollar General 300 in Oct 07
I've had pit passes for the last few years and have a lot from the cup races but nothing with me at work. I'll dig through them and post some later tonight.

The Coca-Cola 600 is one awesome race to be at even though it is extremely LONG....

Earnhardt fan for a long time, first dad and then onto Jr. The most diappointing part about Jr.'s move to HMS is that he took his cousin with him. I was hoping that Hendrick would hand pick him a crew chief. But, even with Eury Jr., along Dale Jr. has no excuses now, he needs to win early and often.

I jumped up as Jr. crossed the finish line and hollared, " Take that Teresa Earnhardt"! Scared hell outta Lynn! And you know that wasn't a set up either, cause Stewart had something serious to prove for Toyota and would have won it for them if he could have. This next week and next weekend will really be interesting!

I don't think Jr. has lost any fan base from his switch to the Hendrick organization. When he took the lead for the first time, right before the first caution flag/break, the fans went crazy and my TV started shaking from the fans jumping up and down in the stands!:rolleyes: :D

I was thinking having Eury Jr. was not the right person for JR. but I was wrong…. it looks like it is working well …………………… 2 for 2
on Sunday he needs some luck, and keep his tires from blistering and it looks like the Toyotas have a lot of power???? I don’t like Kyle Busch but at 13 to 1 odds to win…? Sounds like a good bet to me…?:rolleyes:

Do you mean Nationwide series (formally Busch)!
What do you mean, "if he gets his primary car back from NASCAR"? I can't find anything about that on the NASACAR site! What's the problem with his car, please elaborate!

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway hasn't been perfect for Dale Earnhardt Jr. (http://sports.espn.go.com/rpm/driver?seriesId=3&driverId=150) after all.
The No. 5 car Earnhardt will drive in Saturday's Nationwide Series opener was impounded by NASCAR on Thursday night after officials discovered the team altered the spoiler to create an aerodynamic advantage following inspection.
The car was returned on Friday morning minus the trunk lid and spoiler, repaired and sent back through inspection. It will be allowed to run in the race.
Joe Balash, the Nationwide Series director, said further sanctions against the team and crew chief Chad Walter will be issued on Tuesday. NASCAR officials considered sending Walter home because the offense was considered blatant, but opted to hold off on what could result in a suspension.
Rick Hendrick is listed as the car owner, but the car is co-owned by Hendrick and Earnhardt and run by JR Motorsports in Mooresville, N.C.
Tony Eury Sr., the competition director at JR Motorsports, said Earnhardt and Hendrick weren't "too happy" with what happened. He said the company could take action against Walter on top of what NASCAR does.
"That's not something either of them approve of," Eury Sr. said. "Neither side [NASCAR or Earnhardt] is happy about it."
JR Motorsports officials learned of the incident during the first of Thursday's 150-mile qualifying races for Sunday's Daytona 500. Earnhardt, who won Budweiser Shootout on Saturday, won the race to keep his record at Hendrick Motorsports perfect.
Earnhardt was not told about the infraction until later.

Yep NASCAR rushed the start, it had been raining off and on all weekend, they should have never started that race, I have raced on that track, and they have 3 or 4 big cracks that run the around the track and they are big!!!!! That is where the water was coming up from

But last night on ESPN they said Cal. Speedway was thinking about changing the track to 31 degree banking and change it to a Restrictor Plate Track at a cost 10 million that would be way cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

Last year or maybe it was the year before, it snowed on Sat. at the Spring Bristol race and they had snowball fights on the frontstretch, I'm jus' sayin'!

well you busch haters will be glad to know that kyle just cut a tire in the nationwide series race and stuffed it in the wall

I was glad to see it happen. He is a great driver. He just has a $hitty attitude and I cant stand him. Hes been just dominant this year so far though.

I saw that. It was rather bitter sweet seeing as how the logo on the front of his car is my company logo..:confused: Still not a fan of the attitude...

I think the difference is smoke has earned his stripes. He dosent run away crying and acting like a baby when he dosent get his way. Maybe when Kyle accomplishes something people will care about him and what he has to say. He wants attention plain and simple.

I cant believe the interview he gave. What a stuck up *****. You blew a tire it happens. That was uncalled for. Instead of my car ran really good today, I really hate it for everyone that we blew a tire, it was all who can I blame this on, I am the greatest thing walking on God's green earth

My thought exactly. Everytimne something happens to him he finds someone to blame.

I can't stand the shrub but fair is fair and rather than cuss on t.v. he held it in. All the rest of the comments are right on about him but I think in this case he was P.O. rather than arrogant. You want a killer on the track and the kid has it. The downside is when they lose they can make an a$$ out of themselves. It is wrestling after all. Stir the storm! Bring it baby!

You make a good point that I never thought of. My only argument is when have you never seen him not arrogant? I used to think Jimme was bad but he never got under my skin the way Kyle does. I understand he drives the wheels off of his cars but I think alot of his problems are of his own making. I think he is pushing it a little to far and that is what is getting him in trouble on the track. I may be completley wrong as well.

Toyota Wins their first Sprint Cup Series Race. I still don't understand why Rick Hendrick kept Casey Mears over Kyle Bush???

You mean Kyle, Kurt never raced for Hendrick. There was talks about it when Jr was leaving DEI. It has something to do with the relationship Casey had with Ricky if I am not mistaken. Kyle stirs up tomuch stuff and I dont think Hendrick wants that among his teams. Look at how he got rid of Vickers as well. If your not a team player at Hendrick your out.

I understand that. I drove race cars for years, and no doubt it is very emotional. Its one thing to be wound up on the track, but you have to have a different image off it. IMO it was a s**tty interview and if MY company pays him to represent me, and personally it just wouldn't fly with me.

I would venture to say that NASCAR gets on him about what he said about the Goodyear Tires. Tony is quickly taking the "Cry Baby Title" since Rusty Wallace is gone.................:rolleyes:

I think this weekend he went a little to far with it. We all knew he was upset. I like smoke but I think he made himself look like an a$$. He was the only driver making that big of a deal out of something that everybody had to put up with. Maybe he was taking one for the team and speaking for all the guys in the garage. Just seems like everyone else chose to deal with it.

As much as I hate the guy. I have to give credit where credit is due. He has been dominant in everything he has driven so far. I expected Gibbs to have some struggles with the switch over to Toyota. So far I see none.

you know the difference between a NASCAR driver and a puppy?...


a puppy WILL stop eventually whining

Tony Stewart is the worst
