tridentgum0;2653366 said:Daytona and Talladega are my two favorites to watch for that very reason.
iamtheddrman;2653390 said:LOL! Other than golf, I'd say baseball is the most boring sport to watch. I LOVE playing both of them, but they are flat-out awful to watch, IMO.So you like watching the guy who raced a perfect race lose because some d-bag screwed him on the last lap? That ain't my cup o' tea, lol. I like the races where the drivers are in control of their own destiny, rather than depending on other drivers to basically make them win.
tridentgum0;2653403 said:I enjoy the fact that no one can pull out to a 5 second lead the whole race and that even the part-time, unsponsored guys have a shot to win, yes. It gets boring watching the smae drivers in victory lane every week.
n4sc4r;2653423 said:There's a reason I put the etc. there. BTW go White Sox!Anyway with the discussion going I update the op's, only now it's all about the Sprint Cup series. Oh yeah, and Brad Keselowski is my favorite Nationwide series driver so seeing him win at Talladega was sweet! And to the whiny Edwards fans I still say Keselowski did nothing wrong. If Edwards would have been smart enough to block the inside he would have won.
Mega-Tallica;2653424 said:Agreed it seems either Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart, or Greg Biffle wins every race. It was nice to Joey Logano win at New Hampshire because it was a different driver winning finally.
Mega-Tallica;2653424 said:Jimmie Johnson
iamtheddrman;2653440 said:He's my favorite driver. And before anybody says I just like him because he wins every year, I picked him up for the Daytona 500 his rookie year on my fantasy team. So I've literally liked him since his first race in Sprint Cup It freaked my dad out when he did so well his rookie year. He was so pissed I got that good a driver for only 14.1 points!
tridentgum0;2653433 said:His fans can't say Edwards would have moved if he was in Keselowski's position. Carl would have held position as well.Johnson's my guy, so that one doesn't bug me. Also, rain-shortened races don't ****ing count in my book.
n4sc4r;2653463 said:Why is that? It's just another strategy race. It's no worse than fuel strategy races to me. The team with the best strategy won.
tridentgum0;2653475 said:Mainly because I hate the damn things and it makes the sport look like a tool. Remember Charlotte? They waited 3 hours to call the race because a no-name was winning. They called New Hampshire in 10 minutes because the hot young thing was winning. They should at least try it the next day, I don't care if you're halfway or not. I love NASCAR, but come on. The rain at Charlotte was 5 times heavier too.
Mega-Tallica;2653485 said:Woah, are you saying Joey Logano's hot?
n4sc4r;2653549 said:Hahaha well his girlfriend might think so anyway... I agree on the thought that rain stopped races should be continued the next day, but some people don't recognize how hard that is to do, and how few fans might be able to come back the second day. After the halfway point, it's fair to the fans because they've seen plenty of racing. Besides, going through the whole setup thing again just to do 30 laps seems stupid to me. I personally think the cutoff point should be eith 75% or 80% through a race instead of 50%.
iamtheddrman;2653668 said:I personally think they oughta slap rain tires on the cars and keep racing, like EVERY OTHER racing series does. I can count on one hand how many series actually call a race for rain, whereas I can name plenty that keep going. Sure the cars are heavy, and the race would slow down quite a bit, but it would definitely make the rain more of a "let's see what they do now" thing rather than a "who gets a free win this week?" kinda thing.
tridentgum0;2653674 said:According to the analysts, rain tires don't work on ovals. :rolleyes: RIIIIGGGGHTT.
iamtheddrman;2653681 said:LOL I'd love to see the "data" that backs that up. The only thing I could think that would complicate things would be in a torrential downpour, there would be sheeting down the track, causing lots of hydroplaning. But if it's just kinda raining, let 'em run.
tridentgum0;2653707 said:They call red flags for sprinkles now. It bugs me. I recall a Nationwide race using rain tires on a road course last year though.

mimic;2654369 said:I was a hardcore nascar fan up until this year. I stopped watching. It's horrible now.I just go to the website occasionally to make sure Jr is still a horrible no talent hack. It puts a smile on my face to know he won't be in the chase.If Kahne can move to a team that has good cars I might watch again.
tridentgum0;2654376 said:He won two weeks ago on a track he hates. Good enough? Not to mention he's learning from some guy named Richard Petty.
mimic;2654456 said:He learned a lot from Bill Elliot. It doesn't mean anything when the team he drives for is re tarded.
