Mztlplx: Jensaarai: ClavellBCMI: And all of the changes that were made to come up with the 2012 car were in an effort to get rid of pack racing and freight-train drafting, which really only affected the races at Daytona and Talledega (and Texas, to a degree).

Yeah. Looks like the focus this time is on fixing the 1.5 milers, which is absolutely where it should be, if we're stuck with em for now.

The thing is, I get the feeling that NASCAR is mostly angling for an "at least they tried," consolation from the fans. They talk about reducing horsepower, but don't commit to it. They talked about reducing downforce, but added it all back and are now going in the opposite direction.

I'm hopeful for next season to have better side by side racing, but I'm not confident in NASCAR's ability to break its own groupthink which lands us in our current spot every few years.

Still, at least they're aware of what fans are saying, which is more than I'd have credited 'em with, and a lot better than the current "fark what the fans want" attitude over in Indycar. Heh.

Go back to using the 1970 body styles. Problem solved.


Use 'stock' cars right from the showroom. Complete with all the stock systems. Be careful bump drafting or you'll deploy the airbags. And carry a trunk full of moonshine.

emonk: Mztlplx: emonk: Shadow Blasko: Depends... Lets get the bondage chat going again... and it might be entertaining.

I once filled a rust hole in the fender of a Nova, but it fell out the following winter.

Oh...

I just removed and recalibrated the mechanical fuel injection system on my Mercedes.

/owning a 30 year old car is a form of bondage

Weren't you working on that thing a few weekends ago?


I am *always* working on that thing. Two weekends ago was the ignition system, though.

vegaswench: Okay, it's getting serious. Forget the idol, which has forsaken us. I say we all use our collective power to root for Keselowski and Bowyer the next two races.


Count me in.

These days it would be carrying a trunk-full of either meth or pot.

And Yes.

Wait.. if NASCAR ever goes full ethanol, wouldn't that technically count as moonshine in the trunk?

It eventually loaded. Looks like JJ, and Hamlin are on today's offal roster. Ragan too, but I'm not wasting negative vibes on him.

JPM, BK and JJ all together on the track. I'm scared for BK.

Well, except that they said that just before they went to commercial.

That crew workin on the Androgel commercial could sure be used over at the 56 garage
 
2012-11-11 03:46:55 PM  
I like how for this 60 second Androgel commercial, 45 of it is devoted to side effects and warnings.

Is it bad for car sponsored by auto-parts maker to blow an engine? Sort of like Bowyer pitting because he's very tired.
