It's always baffled me that there are people out there that actually buy cars, and think they're getting something similar to what their NASCAR hero is driving.Kaiser said:I guess it's not as popular since you can't sell cars this way and you don't get fiery crashes
NASCAR has truly bastardized stock car racing. There used to be a saying, "Win on Sunday, buy on Monday," meaning that the winning stock car of a weekend race would be a big seller the following week. That was in a time when stock car racing meant that the cars on the track actually had to have a limited production run that was to be sold to the public. Now, there are so many rules and regulations that the cars on the "stock car" circuit aren't even remotely stock. They are tubular framed, fully caged, highly tuned specialty cars that are meant to turn in only one direction.erohver said:It's always baffled me that there are people out there that actually buy cars, and think they're getting something similar to what their NASCAR hero is driving.
I have to tap into the World Superbike schedule. I normally have to battle the SWMBO and kids for TV time.beergears said:what's next Goped racing..?!!?

Do you have access to full-length races (until they're pulled off, maybe)..??
That's called Trailer Racing and sometimes it's shown on Speed during the slow weekend hours, usually with a million Lucas Oil commercials......well, when Speed isn't showing NASCAR. They even had a combine destruction derby a few weeks ago.Bedlam said:Someone told me that there was a race where the drivers had to pull a boat or a camper or somesuch. I guess it ended up being more like a demolition derby than a race. I'd definately watch that!
Destruction is good.
Damn that's a bunch of guys that can ride the wheels off a bike. I'd watch just to see one or two of these guys I clipped from the list, but all of 'em? It's gonna be a great season to spectate!beergears said:Back to MotoGP...
