    I picked up a copy of USA Today and it looks like it's going to be the Danica 200.....

    I think I'll skip the race. I wonder if she was allowed to win the pole, just to get people to watch?

    I think racing is popular enough - and the drivers competitive enough - that that would never happen!

    Dunno about that.....

    Richard Petty's 200th career win SHOULD have been a DQ, as he had about 20 CI extra in his engine.

    I think NASCAR needs to change the design on their track dryers.......

    Fuel cell, anyone?

    Just because I am the luckiest man on the planet does not mean I have any pull with the 'gods of weather'.

    The delay after the JPM crash was so long, I forgot to watch the end of the race......

    LH,

    You figure they can keep fighter aircraft from flaming up?

    I wonder if they would mandate the location of the FC pickup, too?

    Wouldn't the pickup have to be in the pickup?

    From the looks of it that tank was just a diamond plate tank like you buy for farm equipment. SHould have been a bladder setup like is on the cars. That's not the first time the safety crew has taken a hit, just the most spectacular.

    How many Columbians does it take to stop a NASCAR race?

    Only Juan.

    I'll have to link the article later, but I just saw Ryan Newman is visiting Best Friends in Utah while they are out west this weekend. A camera crew is going along and it will be a story in the pre-race to help bring more awareness to animal rescue. Go Newman!

    Scary as hell to watch! It's a miracle that no one in the stands was killed. I can't imagine seeing a tire or anything else that was flying off that car, headed in my direction.
