    Today I was reminded why I stepped away from NASCAR. It's too much like Formula 1 nowadays. I sure miss the beating up fenders and grass passing of the old school days, but back then NASCAR actually had street legal stock cars that could take a beating. The current templates would fall apart if you sneeze on them.

    Just watched it. It what was I expected. Single file racing first 190, then got to racing the last 10. It was a new car, so I didn't expect good racing for most of the race.

    Finish was good. Happy for Danica. She was smart and patient. Made me eat my words. Told my wife she would fall back early and stay mid pack.

    Two of my three got wrecked early( Harvick & Stewart ), but Jr finished 2nd. Good start for him.

    Aye. That is the definition of real racing. Back when the manufacturers actually competed against eachother.

    Any kind of car on that track for 200 laps is like watching grass grow. I was ready to hang myself after 10 min. Do not get NASCAR one bit? I tried yesterday though...just couldn't take it.

    Well thats the idea of the new car, I'm not ready to bash on the new car after one race. I miss the racing of early 90s.

    I don't watch racing, so I'd rather just see her with her clothes off. But that's just me. lol

    I think we will finally get to see the new car at it's fullest potential in Bristol.
