  1. Harvick Penalty after Texas

    I read a book Darrell Waltrip put out years ago. He talked about a couple of things they did. He said they use to fill the frame rail full of BB's. When he got on the track he would loosen a bolt for his jack pad and let the BB's out. They also took some lead and shaped it and painted it to look like one of those old brick radios. Of course after tech they would replace it. But I still say rules are rules and everyone has to obey. If your transponder is off 1 inch you're in violation. I had my car always in spec. I've had people tell me to do this or that but I never would. Not my style. I'd rather race someone clean and legal and lose then to race someone and win while cheating. To me that would actually take the thrill away for the win.
  2. Harvick Penalty after Texas

    I'm glad they found something and penalized him. If only they would do that to all they find and increase the penalty each time for the same infraction. It does hurt but he is still 4th in points. He's also going to a track he runs very well at. As lone as he doesn't get into any trouble he should be ok to race for a championship in Miami.
  3. Nascar Martinsville

    I for one have no issues with how Logano raced Truex. Would have been better though if it had been Kyle Busch.
  4. Nascar Martinsville

    I wonder how everyone would have reacted if it was Kyle Busch instead of Truex.
  5. Fantastic job with the video.
  6. Talladega

    I don't think Danica could have gotten the job done. It was a strange race to watch. Nothing like I can recall for a long time. One string of cars and the rest of the field scattered. In my opinion the rest of the pack should have stayed organized and the Stewart-Hoss cars may not have ran away.
  7. Nascar "Ro-val" race at Charlotte

    I thought it was interesting. Something different. A tweak here, a tweak there and it will be a great race.
  8. Saturday, September 29th

    HiTech, you can take them out on SPID Saturday night. That should be just as enough excitement as they would have seen at the speedway.

    It seems to me Hamlin does not have a contract in place for new year. Truex to the 11?
  10. Can someone provide a ticket cost? Is there a different price for ticket from Saturday to Sunday? Is there a discount if you buy a ticket for both days? Is there a senior citizen discount and what do you consider to be a senior citizen age? What are the ticket cost for youth? Thanks much!!

    I agree with TheCloser. With your vast knowledge you should attempt to put one together.

    Oh yeah, the Earnhardt rule.
  13. Nascar

    I didn't think what Busch did was right. Larson got in there a little hot and went up the track. Probably working on the slide job. He got into Busch a little but Busch didn't back off hoping to maintain his momentum and keep the lead. Larson got around him but then Busch intentionally drove into Larson"s rear bumper with the intent on moving him out of the way. Larson not intentional for the hit. Busch intentional for the hit. I have the ending of a race last year at Las Vegas where Busch got some blood on his forehead. I like to go back from time to time to review it. Busch had gotten into Lagono and moved him out of the way. Lagono got hot in the next corner and drifted up into Busch spinning him out. Of course you may remember what happened when they got to pit road. The interviewer asked Busch what happened and he said he flat out got dumped. He said Lagono races like that all the time and he had one coming. Funny how Busch doesn't remember how he intentionally slammed into the side of Lagono and how he felt that he got dumped and was upset about it and turns right around and "dumps" Larson. Selective memory.
  14. When I raced I wasn't in it for the points championship. At that time I was traveling a lot and there was no way I could run for points. I never had the money or time it took to be that competitive. Sure it was nice to win a heat race once in a while. I raced because I love the sport and always have. I tried to be as respectful to all the other racers on the track the best I could. If I saw the leaders were coming up on me I would signal for them which side to go around me. Usually it was to the right. But for some reason it always seemed that people had to go to the inside of me going into the turns. My left side was beat to crap. Sure I could have been on top but we were always told low is slow. Some individuals would just slammed the hell out of me just for their own kicks I guess. I always let it go. I'd rather take the hits than to confront. Just go about my business. This is one reason I decided I had had enough and quit racing. I cannot stand racers who have hot heads, disrespect other drivers and all they want to do is fight either on the track or the pits. It took the fun out of it for me. I had "Playin' It Straight" across the back of my car. That's how I wanted to race, straight and clean and wanted other racers to do the same.
