Lately it hasn't been, that's for sure, at least at the fall race. But hope springs eternal and I go to the shorttrack a lot more, anyways.

I think these guys are going to be back in Charlotte this fall. I'm going to try to go. I watched it on Speed last year and it looked like some good racing.
Aren't they having a full weekend at the dirttrack? Should be worthwhile.

Between that, the cup races, and now the dragstrip, I'd be about broke if I lived closer than 3 hrs.

Default Daytona 500 - 2009

Well, it was a fun race to watch...though the ending was kind of like kissing your sister.

Kyle Bush looked great until he got caught up in Junior's dumb@ss move.

Lagano had a pretty good run. 18 friggin years old and racing at Daytona. My guess is a few more years on the circuit, and he'd have been able to avoid that wreck.

It was nice to see them back on the track. I'll agree that was a dumb @ss move buy Junior. But Vickers move to block him wasn't that much brighter. I'm glad the first signs of spring are here.

I'm beginning to hate restrictor plate races. I takes a team effort to pass. And the only way to avoid being passed is to block. I can't wait til Martinsville & Bristol. That's real racing.

I think what made the JR. move so bone-headed is that he did it while both he and Vickers were a lap down and in front of the field full of good cars that had legitimate chances to win. And it was in the middle of the race. I mean if you are going to punt a guy that's blocking, then do it on the last turn of the last lap going for the win.

But, I'm sure their will be payback before the season is over. And when it happens the beer cans will rain down from the stands...

NASCAR is my sport. Yep just wait for the paybacks. I was gald to see Kenseth win. That's the SWMBO's driver. I watched all 3 races. The Bud Shootout. Trucks are always great.

I am HUGE Nascar fan and being in MA I feel so ALONE! My dad took me to the Daytona 500 in 85 when Bill Elliot won and I have been hooked ever since.

Crazy stat of the night for me was that Roush never had a winner at Daytona until last night. When I thought about it, it made sense, but I guess you just 'assume' he had won there before. I think he will have a lot more wins there in the future.

Looking forward to what I think will be a great season.

Yeah, nothing goes better with a brew session on cold winters days like a truck race, a nationwide or a sprint cup race. Towards the later summer days I drift away cuz the pool's open and it's BBQ season.

Im not saying what Little E did was right, however They were both racing for the lucky dog and they both knew that rain was coming. They did not know that the race was going to be rained out so they were fighting to be on the lead lap if it was just a delay. It was just a stupid move on both parts and the best car of the day was taken out because of it.

They were both wrong. When you are a lap down and up near the leaders at a plate race, you don't race aggressively.

Jr. said that he had a run on him and Vickers should have let him go. He's right.

Vickers said that Jr. didn't race him clean coming back up the track and that was wrong and dangerous too. He's right.

I doubt that Dale had thoughts of the 2006 Talladega race, but I am sure their racing is going to get interesting.
