You know those berserk meters in fighting video games that fill up the more you get beat up? Imagine that, only above the 78 car.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: the biggest redneck here: Jensaarai: the biggest redneck here: Gyrocam is so rigged, what a crock of shiat. Actually saw them move it well past 90 degrees *to the left* on a straight a few weeks ago.

BTW, it's nice to have you in one of these threads. We need someone to push back against some of our whining sometimes. The results (like this thread) are usually pretty damn funny.

Thanks, although I'm actually not much of a 48 fan. More just 24/HMS in general, but the 48 hate here is awesome and has taken on a life of its own.

You know what I hate even more? When people refer to the drivers by numbers instead of by their names. That's easily the most redneck thing of all time. Then again, your username says it all, so it's not surprising from you.


You sound like an 18 fan. Or maybe the 1. Or even the 13.

NASCAR continues its way-too-late sucking up to Wendell Scott's family.

I heard when Wendell Scott won they declared the win to need further review to prevent a riot, since it was the South in the 60s.

They declared him the winner the following day after the crowd had dispersed.

ESPN did one of their 30 for 30 things about him. IIRC, they gave him the award money right away, but gave the trophy and victory lane celebration to Baker. Their justification was that they were afraid what would happen if the local pageant winner (a white girl) gave him the ceremonial kiss on the cheek in front of said derptastic crowd. The thing that is huge bullshiat is that his family didn't get the trophy until after he died decades later and NASCAR decided they needed to start fixing their "image."

Drivers don't have numbers, the cars have numbers owned by the race teams, such as HMS.  Evidenced by the fact that Tony Stewart, Joey Logano and Matt Kenseth have all been drivers of the 20 car in the last 5 years.

I know that. Yet they refer to each other as "the 48", "the 24", "the 10", whatever. It's common, and it's annoying. It's been a long-time biatch of mine. I guess I'm just not redneck enough for NASCAR.

A lot of the field had to spend time on pit road. But she kept her nose *relatively* clean for Martinsville and has managed to make up 2 laps while everyone else has been fighting it out and suffering the consequences. She's doing that Danica thing where she gets better as the race goes on.

Just briefly switched from Martinsville to #IndyCar, just in time to witness an IndyCar stack-up that reminded me a lot of Martinsville.

Do F1 cars even have numbers?  I can't recall seeing them through all the sponsor and team logos.

Meh. That big number is the most consistent aspect of any car visually, and it's good shorthand when so many drivers swap sponsors or even rides these days. The 11 is normally Hamlin, now it's Mark, later it'll be Vickers. The 55 can be Mark, Mikey, or Vickers. It's even crazier in Nationwide or Trucks, where they change rides so often even the announcers fark up who is in what car.

Then it's just good shorthand for live threads.

Plus a savvier poster can use it to distinguish between the way the car looks, VS how the driver acts.

I don't see it as a redneck thing, just a quirk of the visual presentation with a dash of practicality. Thinking it's a "redneck thing" comes from your pre-existing view of NASCAR as a redneck sport, so any quirk of the language associated with it becomes a sign of redneckery, even if the reason for the quirk has more to do with the sport, and less with how its fans and drivers would talk if those circumstances were different.

Yup.  Into the peanut butter patties right now.  Reading the nutritional info on the side (shouldn't have done that.)  A "serving" is 2 1/7th cookie.  Why do they even bother?  A real serving is one box!

I think it's a bit too early in the season to go nuts, but he is a few steps closer.

As unfathomable as it seems Tony Stewart 17th, about six car lengths ahead of Danica Patrick (20th). Smoke, worst in class at SHR?

22. And there's not nearly as much done in F1 to stop teams from just making things a technological arms race that you can tell who won from the moment they leave the paddock on Opening Day.
 
2013-04-07 03:53:09 PM  
Has anyone ever explained why Kurt Busch is still on a small team instead of one of the larger contenders?

Seems strange to me he hasn't picked up a real ride

Pretty much. Numbers are more practical than names when there's 20 relevant names exchanging often for 3+ hours, whereas names make more sense when there's far less passing/exchanging between just 2 or 3 (or ZERO) guys at the front for less than half that time.
