Nascar Thread

Recommended Posts

I used to live 90 miles north of Daytona, and I went to both the Daytona 500 and what was then called the Firecracker 400 (on July 4) several times. Of course, this was long before NASCAR became more about sponsors and big money than anything else, and I could actually afford a ticket. Independent drivers ran on the circuit, which could never happen now. In 1972 I had a ticket for the 500 on the front row of the main grandstand, three seats from the start/finish line that I bought mail order without any connections. If I could even get that seat now, I shudder to think what it would cost me.

apparently during the rain delay fox ran tape of last year's 500. tons of fans didn't realize it and posted all kinds of comments online. jimmy johnson, last year's winner, even got a bunch of phone calls and texts from friends congratulating him. he was inside watching "the jungle book" with his daughter and had no idea what had happened on tv.
