Yeah , go once, it is an all day party.
I went to the 40th Daytona 500(the year Dale Sr.won). I had seats in the Fritos hospitality suite right behind the pits. It was an awesome day.

That was some good racing yesterday. All the Stewart fans must be just a little angry with Harvick. Gotta love Bristol

I thought Bristol would be a little boring with no big straight-aways. I was wrong.

It was a great race. Kyle Bush has to be ready to sell his soul for a wreck free weekend.

the short tracks, imo are where the real racing is at. no aero packackage, slap a bumber on that ride and mash!

I'm not a huge maniac, but one of my roommates got me into a 2 years ago, so I watch it on a semi regular basis... The races are great, because you can start watching, at the beginning of the race, run some errands, come back and catch the last 30 laps.

Bristol and Martinsville are the two best traclks on the entire circuit. Forget Daytona and Talladegga, short tracks are where its at. Harvick is my boy but that was a pretty bum thing to do. Give Tony the chance and he would of done the same thing

I hear ya on the short tracks. But you gotta love the plate tracks too. 20 cars finish within a half a second of each other @ 190+ mph. I'm so glad racing is back in full swing.

I am pissed for a couple of reasons with Harvick! Totally screwed Tony. I am not sure that Tony would have won but he had no chance after that stupid move! Not only that it guaranteed that Tony would continue to look like a retard with that d@mn mullet! If they would just stop wrecking him near the end of the race he'd cut it off!
