If thought this was an interesting question so I did a little googling.  About 8 hits down I came across a site that makes castefootball look like the rainbow coalition.  That aside, I was always under the belief that it was because they try to treat the cars as a team, rather than just a driver.    Then again, I don't watch much nascar.  :dunno:

Wasn't aware we had a thread for this...

Kyle's just disgusting at Bristol right now.  Last year, no one had ever done the trucks, Nationwide, and Sprint in one weekend, and he did it.  Well, he did it again this weekend, minus the trucks.

Love how Dale is getting his groove back.  Of course, as you know, I'm a Hendrick guy.

Carl Edwards can suck a dick.

Post by: WillieWatanabe on March 20, 2011, 10:24:45 PM
:D I figured you'd be around sometime.

Kyle Busch just wins races...curious to see how long he'll race 2 -3 times a weekend. He's still young with a bangin hot wife.

Sounds like Dale and Steve Letart(?) make a good combo...pretty cool to see him in the top 10 in points again.

Speaking of points...i'm still trying to figure out the point system. I think Gordon is like 19th...but i'm not sure how long it'll take for him to get up in the top 10. Seems like this system kills you on bad finishes.

Yeah, it's simpler to follow though...I think.

Points based on place makes sense to me.  I haven't dug into how they give bonuses for laps lead, etc.

It seems like this system really, really puts a strong emphasis on keeping your car on the track.  Wreck your call all of the time, and you have no shot at the chase.

Yeah, great race. Kinda wished Jr. would have pulled it off, just so his winless streak would get out of the news. I'm always glad to see Busch fail. Looking like Hendricks' crew chief swap has been a pretty good move.

In all seriousness, Carl needs to drop from first.  I hate that guy.

I've been looking at the replays, and it looks like Gordon tapped Boywer, which knocked him off just enough for Jimmie to get in there since he and Dale were clean on the line.

I was about ready to throw a big "eff" out there when I saw Jimmie start crossing the line on the final turn.  I couldn't believe they pulled that off.

I'm just glad a Ford didn't win.

fairly certain watching it on your EVO app takes half the white trashyness away. But yeah, his save was ridiculous. Then to avoid the 3 wrecks and push Kyle to the front. Crazy.

5 races left i believe. Chase standings will be determined by the number of wins during the first 26 races. 3 points for each win. Take top 10 drivers in points, plus 2 drivers(if there are any) between 11-20 with at least a win, to make 12 max.

So, Jr and Stewart could be seeded 11 and 12?  (I don't think Tony has won one yet?)  And then it's just straight wins?  I'm not sure what the F is going on but I kinda like what I think is going to happen.  Nice way to reward race winners.

Right now, Jr and Stewart better hope that they stay inside the top 10. Otherwise, without a win, they'll be cutting it close.

The two wildcards will be 11th and 12th no matter what. They can't move up at the start.

just a matter of time before every track has it. But ESPN put out an article earlier this year saying the soft walls are in short supply and they install them as quick as they can.

Jimmie Johnson says he's Jimmy Spencer's "biggest fan." Spencer once punched Kurt Busch.

jeff_gluck Jeff Gluck
Johnson said he got the "maddest" when Busch started "running his mouth." Never seen Johnson talk like this before.

Personally, I didn't think what Busch did to him a few weeks ago was THAT bad.  But there is history between Kurt and Jimmie, and while Johnson isn't really a smack talker or inflammatory, I think when you get him mad, he doesn't forget it.

I don't think anyone should be running their mouth at the five-time consecutive champ, but hey, what do I know?

I wouldn't mind seeing Edwards win it. Other than driving for Roush, I'm ok with him.  Probably will be pulling for Tony though. I don't get how he went from so mediocre most of the season, to this. Crazy.
Title: Re: Official NASCAR 11 thread
Post by: MakeItRain on November 16, 2011, 11:10:25 AM
I respect him for turning his season around but he's still a chode.  It was 13 weeks ago when he was talking like he gave up on his team and the season and he was bullying female reporters.  Also "he better watch out" quotes from two weeks ago were lame.  Was he really trying to intimidate Edwards?  The way Carl handled that was great, essentially laughed at the troll.  The perfect ending to the season is Stewart is in the lead late & has locked up the most laps led bonus, Edwards is in second and hasn't lead a lap and Edwards is forced to dump a blocking Tony Stewart to win the race and the championship.

Bumpity! Bumpity! Bumpity! Let's go racing!

Getting a head start this year compared to last. But they've started Daytona testing this week and it's got me in the mood. The Bud Shootout kicks off the season on February 18.

Potential story lines to pay attention to this year..

1. Fuel Injected Engines making their full time debut this year. Will they be as durable? more power? who develops an advantage first? new ways to cheat??

2. Danica Patrick's part time ride. Did Tony know wtf he's doing?? Will she win a race? even a top 15?? when will she get naked??

3. New Ride/Sponsors. Kasey Kahne in a Hendrick car?? Clint Bowyer driving a Toyota?? A.J. Allmendinger in a Penske car? Kurt Busch driving for PHOENIX RACING??? No more Red Bull Cars??

4. Plate Racing. Will NASCAR eliminate the two car draft and bring back pack racing at plate tracks by limiting driver communication and tweaking the car(radiator, water temp, ect.)??

5. Can Jimmie get back on track.
Will Tony repeat? Will Carl, Kyle, or Kevin finally win their first??

Kasey Kahne picking on a poor woman nursing :facepalm: not a good way to start your life at Hendrick.  Learn some decorum from your teammates, boy.

Can't wait to cheer for Danica, anything to piss the Talledega necks off.  She will be my favorite when 24 hangs up the driving boots and hopefully she'll win enough to move right into JGs seat when its time.  She was doing much better than expected in Nationwide considering she had 0 stock car experience.  If she's as good as Juan Pablo she'll be insanely popular and will grow the sport even more than Gordon and 3 did in the 90's.

you were bothered by Kahne's tweets? i thought they were overblown. He obviously should keep some comments to himself, but i didnt think it was that bad.

I will be surprised if Danica wins 1 race. OK, i can see her winning a fluke fuel mileage race or something(I mean Joey Lagano won a race for christ's sake) But i don't see her winning 2. It would be good for the sport if she does though and she should have the best equipment.

Him being grossed out didn't bother me.  I think its stupid and just another sign as to how unrefined most of this country is, but to each his own.  My issue was the language he used with the breast feeder, I think he used the word disgusting, and the tone of exchange he had with one of the ladies who called him out.  I wish I could remember her handle, she was quite funny and clownsuited Kahne.  I was going to add her as a follow but her timeline, while good, is way to busy.

they said it takes at least 2 hours to dry the track during the day....even longer once the sun sets. I don't think they wanted to risk having the biggest race of the year end after midnight EST.

curious how the weather will play out.

If it stays clear until 7ish...and then rains a bit...that will be very frustrating.

NASCAR made the right call though and took a chance on primetime racing. Hope it works out.

good read. I don't really have anything against NASCAR, maybe I just don't have the time to get in to it. I also dislike hardcore NASCAR fans (throw pillows of their favorite drivers number, colors, etc). Maybe casual fandom would be better for me.

Watched bits and pieces while switching back and forth between NCAA tourney games. Great finish to the race. Also liked Tony Stewart going after Logano after the race. Smoke had some rough words for Joey...said he was going to "bust his ass." Joey better look out. Smoke keeps his word.

LOL, I seriously doubt that Fat Tony has ever gotten in a fight in his life. I loved the two interviews he granted yesterday, but he is a hypocritical crybaby for having a tantrum about blocking on the last green flag. Who the hell hasn't or wouldn't have blocked there.

Yes WW the whole race was good. I watched the 2nd half of the race after the ISU/OSU game finished. Lots of passing, pit road speeding issue, tire and mechanical problems; there was constant action. Looking forward to Martinsville.

good to hear. Maybe the new car has potential.

And i think Tony's thing with Joey was more of a cumulative effect. What Joey did yesterday did not deserve Tony's rage. I think it was more of trying to knock Logano down a peg or two.

Hope so and also that he bumps Kurt Busch out of The Chase. The Busch brothers are pretty good drivers, but they leave a lot to be desired as far as human beings go (IMHO). Jeff, on the other hand, is a pretty good human being, as are all the drivers who work for Rick Hendrick...especially Dale Jr.

Kasey Kahne.

Also, anyone else wish they would add Bristol and Richmond as actual Chase races? Love the short track night races.. Get rid of Talladega aka.the nap until "the big one" and one of the mile and a half tracks.

Although short track Martinsville is already in the Chase, I'd rather see Bristol in rather than Phoenix or Homestead.

After Gordon was added to The Chase as the the thirteenth Chaser, he said he and his team are fired up. It will indeed be interesting to see how he does.

I have no idea why the change was made this isn't going to bring in more fans or anything. That being said I'm okay with it I guess. I would have been more excited if they added a road course to the chase and changed the finale from Homestead to Atlanta or Martinsville.

Agreed for the most part. The gradual elimination of drivers every few races throughout the Chase might be interesting (I emphasize "might"). That said, Homestead is no place to have the last race of the season. I could live with Martinsville, but would love Daytona--start and end the season there, with the July race retained.

Daytona would be horrawful because the chasers would literally ride in the back the entire race and then move up the last lap. I hate restrictor plate racing, they have to make it better.

I'm pretty meh on it. I didn't care for the current chase, so i'll give this a shot. Seems like it has a better chance of keeping a Jimmie Johnson type run from happening.

At the end of the day, fans will watch because the racing is good. If they can improve the actual racing, that's all that matters.

Would like a Charlotte/Atlanta/Martinisville/Bristol finish... Homestead is bad.

I get what they are trying to do and I guess its ok.  Guessing it has more to do with TV viewership than track attendance.  I'm not a big fan of the change but I wasn't a big fan when they went to the chase format either and that turned out ok.  I agree that if you are going to have a winner take all type race then it needs to be moved to a better track (Texas, Atlanta, Marti, Richmond).

I do like the new qualifying format though.

I actually like it, but agree on the finale.

Agree w/ either of those as the last race, too. But I think Bristol would be perfect for it. Go night race, a more stadium style set up, would feel way more big time I think.

He'll get in without a win and he and Gustafson know it. I have been very frustrated with Gordon the past few years, he isn't an aggressive driver which I have no problem with. I do have an issue with the crew chief never ever taking a swing with pit strategy. Every stop is on schedule with four tires and a full tank, shuffle to the back, move into the top 5, rinse & repeat. A combination of Hendrick, Gordon, and Gustafson have turned him into a safe top 10 machine :zzz:

JG admitted that restarts have been his weakness the last several years, and vowed to work on it...haven't really seen anything definite...but a couple times i noticed he's gained a few spots on restarts, instead of his normal lose 3 spots, then get them back in 50 laps.

Curious how Letarte and Junior seem to have hit their stride...only for Letarte to leave next year.

will be cool to see if that becomes his signature celebration. I have seen him do it many times in midgets and sprint cars, but with the stagger, you can just do donuts without the steering wheel locked in, not as easy in a full body stock car.

Question for you Nascar aficionados. What happened to Dodge teams? I know they didn't have the presence of Ford, Chevy, or even Toyota but they fielded some good cars. Kasey Kahne had a good Dodge while he was driving for Evernham and didn't Keselowski win the chase with a Dodge a few years ago?

Yikes, definitely not made up. I just listened to a witness on the radio who gave a pretty good summary.  His best guess was that it was an accident due to the guy coming to confront Stewart, he was in a dark firesuit, no helmet, darker than normal track, etc.  A different report from deadspin says the guy gestured to Stewart and then Stewart gunned his engine.

Most people are guessing he didn't make it  :frown:.  They lit flares for the helicopter, but put them out before a helicopter got there.

Edit - now reporters are saying he was at least admitted to the hospital, so  :dunno:

New report from Deadspin...

Quote
"Tyler Graves, a sprint-car racer and friend of Ward's, told Sporting News in a phone interview that he was sitting in the Turn 1 grandstands and saw everything that happened.

"Tony pinched him into the frontstretch wall, a racing thing," Graves said. "The right rear tire went down, he spun on the exit of (Turn) 2. They threw the caution and everything was toned down. Kevin got out of his car. … He was throwing his arms up all over the place at Tony for most of the corner.

"I know Tony could see him. I know how you can see out of these cars. When Tony got close to him, he hit the throttle. When you hit a throttle on a sprint car, the car sets sideways. It set sideways, the right rear tire hit Kevin, Kevin was sucked underneath and was stuck under it for a second or two and then it threw him about 50 yards."

Police dept. is supposed to be making a statement soon.

Watched the video multiple times, and after growing up around racing/dirt track racing, there is no doubt in my mind Tony did not hit him on purpose..

First, he was a cocky young kid cause he had no reason to be pissed. Tony slid him and the kid didn't check up and drove himself in the wall. Also, when he gets out (completely rough ridin' idiotic), he almost gets hit by the car in front of TS and then jumps back down after, Tony probably barely saw him (black fire suit, helmet, dark track, car in front of him, etc.). He hit the gas when he saw him to get down the track, but in a staggered car on a slick/not tacky track, he kicks the back end out instead of moving the car down, and that's what clipped him.. Sad deal

Wouldn't a "pro" racer know this fact too?  I'm sure didn't mean to hit him but I'm sure there was some "i'm going to blow some dust on this young punk" type of thinking going on.

Yes and no.. if he locks up the brakes, in a sprint car, he hits the kid without a doubt (possibly doesn't kill him, tho). Hit the gas, and he has a chance to not.

Point is, by coming down on the track, that kid put his life in the hands of TS to make a split second decision, and it didn't work out for him.

Gordo dominated the race, was clearly the best car. On a restart he was 2nd and had to restart outside, he got shuffled back to 5th, Junior had the chance to let him in and he didn't. Two different times in the last 25 laps Jeff and Junior had to quickly work up to the front and they did. Junior won, Jeff finished 2nd and the only reason Jeff finished 2nd is because Junior refused to let him in. Post race Jeff was obviously disappointed he couldn't clinch the final four but he didn't express any frustration with Junior or this stupid outside lane thing.

This outside lane issue has to be fixed, it's absurd. They have people literally stopping before the line during pit stops to get the inside row. People are willing to give up spots too get inside. I've never seen this happen and I've been watching the sport nearly my entire life.

Oh there were two red flags, never saw even one here.

Absolutely but that was not the spot on the track to try to fit your car in. Gordon had to come down or he was going to flirt with scraping the wall. The problem with Keselowski is that he gets into a mode, Harvick called it bash mode, when he has no regard for anyone else on the track and the code that these guys have for how to drive so that you don't tear up cars. A stock car is essentially 4 wheels on a hunk of tin, in the world of auto racing its a crude machine, and with safety advancements its easy to feel bullet proof in those cars. The problem is that no one drives like that, no one but Brad anyway. He is racing by a whole different set of rules than everyone else including the Busch's. He can keep driving like an bad person if he wants to, its his prerogative, but he can't keep wrecking these guys cars and not expect the drivers and the crews that work on these cars to get pissed. He and his defenders bring up Earnhardt but Dale didn't drive like this, those good ol' boys would have beat his ass. Later in his career Earnhardt would use the chrome horn and if that didn't work he might spin you. Keselowski has no patience and uses his car as a battering ram, he would have had no problem passing Gordon the right way if he waited 7 seconds to reach turn 3.

Ricky Craven was too nice when he said that was not the place to pass (Kezeffup passing Gordon at Texas) . . . of course he went on to say that's the stuff you get in this Chase format, so in essence he backpeddled a bit.   But, that pass has now cost Gordon a chance to win 5, because even though he finished 2nd today, the 29th at Texas finished him, because Harvick won today.

Next year, five Chase races are on NBCSN (not as many people get it as ESPN). That includes two of the elimination races (Dover, Talladega).

No, I'm pretty sure this is a good thing, meaning the other 5 chase races will be on NBC, where as there was only previously 1 chase race on ABC

Busch offered up specific examples of her returning from missions, sometimes with bruises.

Once, he said, they were in El Paso, Texas, where Driscoll had left that night in camouflage and boots. She returned later to the hotel at which he was staying wearing a trench coat. Under it she was wearing an evening gown splattered with blood and other matter, Busch testified.

Neither Driscoll nor her attorney refuted the claims during the hearing.

Driscoll, 37, lives in Ellicott City, Md. She heads two organizations, both of them based in Washington, D.C. One is the Armed Forces Foundation, a veterans advocacy group that partners with NASCAR. The other is Frontline Defense Systems, whose website says Driscoll "spent the majority of her career in the narcotics and intelligence world."

What I don't get about Kurt Busch's "defense" is that if she is some kind of trained assassin (seems to me that she is just a lady who loves guns and isn't some kind of hand-to-hand badass) what kind of abusive wack job does he have to be that she needs an order of protection from him?

went to the chili bowl yesterday, and crossed paths with Tony Stewart after,s he sat out this year for health reasons, but took on the role of prepping the track. the god damn dude worked 12-14 hours every day this week working the track. anyway, I've always loved the chili bowl. It's a fun experience, and I'd suggest anyone who loves racing and party rockin to attend at some point in their life.

P.S. No female assassins were in attendance, that I saw.

it's a little different, because I hate being in insanely smokey bars now (you can still smoke in bars in Tulsa) but don't mind being in there at all. for most people, the fumes are the worst part, and it's the only part that has ever got to me (they burn straight methanol, so it'll get to your eyes). but the only other time it can be annoying is on long runs after multiple races and the track goes dry slick, the dust can be irritating. But for the most part, they re-work the track throughout the day and it never gets too bad. I wouldn't really compare any of it to living inside a heater, tho.

you can also upgrade to a pit pass, or just do a pit pass, so you walk right out of the bleachers and into the pits to get away for a few if the fumes get to you. you can go meet/hang out with Kasey Kahne, Kyle Larson, Tony, Kenny Wallace, Ricky Stenhouse, etc. it's a pretty cool experience.

Before Ray Rice he wouldn't ?ave been suspended at all. I'm sure he'll be back because he's talented. I mean he called a well respected person in the sport a rough ridin' man of taste and distinction on camera and race teams didn't even flinch.

Jeff was superb in his first race as an analyst. I'm also glad to see Larry Mac did well in his transition to a new role.

And the race? Great, great finish.

Watching the brickyard because JG88 is running.  It's a boring race as they tend to be and IMS is maybe 40% full. 

NASCAR needs a shake up and some stars.   The hyper equalization rules and constant tweaking are killing them.

I went to the dirt races at Eldora last week. Way more fun to watch than Sprint Cup.

Just took a great nap with Brickyard playing. Now for the final stretch.

I can't believe how detached I have become from NASCAR this season since my guy is gone. I started watching Cale Yarbrough as a lil tyke with my mom, I've literally been watching the sport for 30 years. Now I haven't seen a single race to completion, I haven't even seen 100 total laps all season. It doesn't help that my new guy, Larson and my gal, are poop.

Jimmy, Kyle, Brad, Kevin, Joey, Matt :zzz:

I saw my first race in 1997.  Was back in the corporate area right next to the DuPont tent when JG had to be brought in by a van and wade through 500 people to get inside.  I had no clue before that how big a deal he was.

Wasn't sure where to put this, but I'm sure the guys that follow racing have already heard about Bryan Clauson dying from injuries at the Belleville Nationals (in Belleville, KS) last weekend.

Was questionably the best open wheel dirt driver in the nation and has dabbled in different Nascar series.

Have friends that knew him and said he was a pretty amazing dude. Sad deal.

I was there. Knew it was bad when they hauled off his car covered with a white sheet. Didn't realize how well known he was until all these drivers were tweeting about him.
Stud was an organ donor and saved some lives though.

Oh and NASCAR races need to be shortened to like 250 miles. Make the gas tanks smaller and the tires wear out faster so you can still have all the pit stops. 3 - 4 hours for a race is rough ridin' stupid.

They've shortened a couple 500 milers to 400. Would like to see a few more done that way.

The Daytona commercials during the Super Bowl made me realize I know nothing of this sport anymore, so I decided to look some stuff up and Jesus.

- It's now THE MONSTER ENERGY DRINK OF CHAMPIONS NASCAR CUP SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP or something. Man, I miss Winston Cup.
- They're running segments, kind of like heat races with a long final segment now, instead of full races.
- Tony Stewart is retired with Bowyer driving his car, and his team is now running Fords, WTF. TS is doing a lot of dirt racing this year.
- Chase Elliott will have a Hooters car this year.
- I think Jr. is still sketti brained and really doesn't want to run plate races anymore.
- Go Kyle Larson

I don't think there have been any good NASCAR games for a long time (haven't played video games in years, so could be wrong). Thought about getting into iRacing (for paved and dirt racing) on PC, but appears it would cost way too much money for a competitive set up.

I'm warming up to some of these younger dudes. Still team Larson, but Blaney and Bubba are good by me and I found myself pulling for them Sunday. Not so much Jones, Bowman, kid in the 24 car, etc., yet.

So glad I only watched for about 10 minutes.

Plate racing may simply be the stupidest thing in all of the top racing divisions.

The teams have to spend a ton to create a plate program.   If they're so afraid of the cars on the big tracks, then put a smaller motor in for those races.

Can be hard to watch for extended periods, but it's Daytona and I'm ok with it a few races a year. I rarely watch the 1.5 mile tri-ovals but will sometimes watch the Kansas races. Bristol, Martinsville, Darlington, Dover, New Hamp, and Richmond are more my style.

I think the Bristol night race and Darlington are the best two races of the year.

Man, dead on.

I must add one other issue: Races on NBCSN.  How many people even have access to this channel.  It has to murder efforts to maintain, let alone expand, the fan base.

That said, I have to be honest.  I could get used to the new, young drivers.  I can even put up with some of the car changes as they try and reset things to keep it competitive (but it gets really old every 3 years).  However, I have absolutely no idea how the F the points system truly works, how this year's playoff format works as it is carried out, and I actually follow NASCAR.  If you are disengaging your engaged fan, I can't imagine the impact upon the casual fan.
