How much are tix?


base price is $100, but there are all kinds of specials. Like the Jeff Gordon deal where you buy one ticket at full price and get the second for $24. knocks about $40 off per ticket if you and friend go 50/50.

ski9600: mikaloyd: kteela: mikaloyd: AngryDesertDweller: Was that KFC commercial a little racist ??

Sergio Garcia doesnt think so.
KFC and other sellers of fried chicken have to walk a fine line. If they dont feature any black people in their ads they are racist. If they feature too many or featture any in even a slightly wrong waqy they are racist.

Its just a shame that fried chicken got a racist connotation. because pretty much everybody likes fried chicken.

I think fried chicken smells better than it tastes.  I'm always disappointed when I eat it.  I haven't had any home-made in awhile though, so that might be why.

I love it hot and also cold later picnic style

And microwaved, re-heated in the oven, boiled, made into leftovers, whatever

No, just Jimmie Johnson-full name, otherwise alcohol poisoning.

My college-era NASCAR drinking game was considered the most lethal idea ever. Whenever they showed a booze car on TV for a full second, you drank that thing. This was back when Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, Crown Royal, Budweiser, Miller Lite, and Coors Light were all regular cars, with guest appearances by Smirnoff. We never had the guts/funds to actually play.

I think it's time a lot of us just readjusted to the fact NASCAR is going to be about long green flag runs again. It's been awhile, but it's not like it isn't "actual racing." It's just different. Of course, NASCAR (the organization) chops any attempt at impressive domination off at the knees with its incessant phantom debris cautions, so that breaks long term strategy constantly.

Of course, my solution is to chop air dams and splitters off the noses of the car, but for some reason NASCAR isn't listening to me.

smerfnablin: Johnson went from 36 to 17 in 10 laps?

Not bad for a track he has never won on...


During pre-race coverage the 48 was shown being pushed late to the starting grid. Wendy Venturini said NASCAR kept them in tech inspection for a very long time. They have to know Chad is up to something but can't find it yet.

So far, the Allmendinger/Labonte ride swap is approximately 50% successful.

smerfnablin: What's with all the commercials? I thought TNT was better than fox?


They were. 5+ years ago. People have forgotten that ever since their partnership with NBC ended and they lost Benny Parsons, they've been freefalling. The past couple years they've been leading the race to the bottom with commercials, banners, race breaks etc. ESPN will give us side by side for part of the race, but at the cost of truly incompetent race coverage.

Fireproof: Jensaarai: Jensaarai: But '06 wasn't that long ago. Did you check to see if there was a Daytona 500 thread that year?

Found it. I think that was a bit before my time in these threads. Weeners is The NaSkAr hoping the 48 will explode. Heh.

FTFY. This is a 2013 NASCAR thread.

Nascar on NBC? If it was as good as IndyCar coverage, I'd not have a need for all these crazy network-bashing images anymore!

EatenTheSun: Ok, I realize NASCAR is trying to reach out to the black community, but that version of the National Anthem was about on par with Roseanne's.


I swear it actually gave me a headache.

On some other motorsports forums, they'll sometimes do discussion threads of old races. Try to generally start watching the vid around the same time and treat it live-ish. I kinda wish we could get the Fark crew together for some old 80s or 90s races, just to see what jokes we wind up with.

The Nationwide race was fun really fun. By the end, they were beating and banging at ridiculous speeds. Getting mad at each other in a pseudo pack. I don't think we'll get that today in Cup, but Gen6 managed to make California exciting, and California is just shiatty Michigan, so we'll see. Even if someone runs away with it, I'm looking for slingshots in the top 10 through top 20 to make this fun -- if the cameras will focus back there.

That reminds me.  I recorded yesterday's race while I was working but forgot to watch it.  Maybe tonight.

Last night I watched my (illegal) recording of NBC's coverage of the '06 Daytona 500.  One thing I couldn't help noticing was that there were NO commercials during the last hour of the race.

The good ol' days.
