I really need to stop being a cheap bastard and spend the money to get Speed so I can see F1 and the truck races.

And another TV, since right now I'm stuck watching via my slingbox since the kids are playing the Wii.

This has been the best race weekend so far this year. I got to see Nationwide, Sprint, F1, and Camping World. Indy starts shortly, then NHRA at 7 tonight.

Wooohooooo Life is good!

Sooooooo much better in person than on TV. The engines vibrate everything, from the pavement to the grandstands. Perhaps being a farkette makes this better?

We're under caution at lap 3.....Juanito comes out of the Mommy pits.....Wait! He's lost control! He runs right into the sprinkler head!

It's also useful during NFL season for games that aren't televised in your viewing area. Just make sure to click the "AM. Football" link at the top. The other "Football" link goes to soccer.

I learned that little girls are much more concerned about cosmetic damage to their little white dresses, but they are ruthless on the bump and run.

If they're not going to remove the rule, why not also penalize guys for blowing their motors?

Indy qualifying is going to be a clusterfark
