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.

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.

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.

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.

Fireproof: 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."

And yes, my foil hat is looking quite dapper, thank you.

Easy explanation: Because Jimmie Johnson.

Fark NASCAR threads are the Free Republic of racing. You folks are the freepers, and JJ is Obama.


No, it's more like we are MoveOn.org, and JJ is GWB.

I wonder if they will ever do the upward looking footcam on Danica's car.

Then they could have the Gyrocam Gynocam.

Even JJ backing off seems to have happened the same time as/shortly after the yellow. And that was the start of the chain reaction.

Seriously, is there an official cause for that caution? It seems like every bit of wrecking that happened occurred after the yellow came out. Fox is being utterly useless. What's MRN saying?

They threw the caution for JJ losing the lead, but since the wreckage happened, they can say that was why there was a caution.

I can neither confirm nor deny these allegations and shall simply say this:  Meat Gazing is the name of my Wham! cover band.

You've made me so proud, TK.  When I first joined these threads, you had a Kyle IdolTM, and now this.  Some day, when the conversion is complete, I will buy you a backup battery pack for your JJ IdolTM.

DanZero: Go Fast Turn Left: To be fair, I'm  Subby but I didn't put a time to the race because while I can tell you to the 30 second when the Henry County Board of Commissioners is going to go up and talk, I have on idea when it was coming on TV.  Someone else had a modmin put in a time.

Somebody was hitting up those hot dogs a bit much. I attempted to tell the modmin to "put a time on the thread" but I didn't provide them with one, so they came up with 2:00 -- yeah.


To be fair I've only had three this weekend.  Media center/press box food is all catered, but sometimes ya still have to drop the change on a hot dog or three.
