It's not even the damn Brickyard 400 anymore!
What's next, the "'Can You Blow Me Where the Pampers Is' presented by Mel's Char Palace, not available on dish 400*"?

WTF?

I love going to Indy for the 500, been there the last 20 years or so. I went to the Brickyard 400 a few years back and didn't care for it, very little passing. Montoya should have won that year but for a (in my opinion) bogus penalty in the pits.

I was at Bristol about 5 years ago and Montoya wasn't even a factor in the race. Yet the guy in front of me could do nothing but yell racial and ethnic slurs about Montoya's (non-existent) Mexican heritage. I almost got drunk enough to punch him in the back of the head.

I just had a waking nightmare of Merideth 'Money Shot' Viera and Matt Lauer trying to call the Brickyard. Instead of green flag pit stops, we get Ryan Seacrest interviewing Danica, and then Costas and Lauer making AJ Foyt weight jokes anytime Tony Stewart is on screen.

One really big problem with NASCAR right now is that tickets don't reflect the current economy. I don't know about other track, but at Sears Point, individual tickets cost about $100 each, just for race day. $150 or so for the 3 day weekend. For a family of 4, that's $400 to $600 just to get in to the race. That's not taking things like parking, food, souvenirs, and whatnot into consideration. It's hard to justify that kind of money just for a weekend.

could be as simple as him taking some OTC Sudafed to help with allergies.
But he seems ready and willing to work with NASCAR to figure out how he got the positive test, and find out what he can do to get back in. So at least he's not going Full Mayfield.

One really big problem with NASCAR right now is that tickets don't reflect the current economy. I don't know about other track, but at Sears Point, individual tickets cost about $100 each, just for race day. $150 or so for the 3 day weekend. For a family of 4, that's $400 to $600 just to get in to the race. That's not taking things like parking, food, souvenirs, and whatnot into consideration. It's hard to justify that kind of money just for a weekend.


and the product on the track isn't close to being worth that, period...for me it would be at Sonama, but I prefer road courses...but that's just me

So much this.

Tickets for the Brickyard were running about $75 each earlier this week, plus $20 to park and $5 bottles of water inside. Then there's the standard 200% markup on travel-related items near Indy this weekend.

The weather is actually incredible since it has been basically 100 degrees since the beginning of June.

It's getting this bad, huh? Football is starting to bother me. There is like a 3-commercial break barrage when there is a score and resulting kickoff/change of possession/ It gets even worse if the first play is a turnover of some kind/. You end up with 3 or 4 commercial breaks for 10 seconds of game time off of the clock. It's why I record the game, and start watching after it's been running for about 45 minutes or so with instruction not to call or text me until the game has been over for an hour or so. I 'get' the concept of commercials, but the networks are getting ridiculous with this crap. To make matters worse, they keep saying that they are going to experiment with adding MORE commercials.

Thank God for DVR's... Funny thing is, I think I watch more commercials than I would before, only because I actually pay attention when there are funny ones. At least if you make me laugh, I'll watch your commercial, and even replay it for my wife if it's a good one.
