vegaswench: Professor Farksworth: Wherever we go we need to do like a kickstarter or something and raise a large amount of money, then just buy seats in one section of the stands. (Anything left over can be divided up to help with travel or something.) That way we're all in one spot and we know we won't be separated by non-Farkers.

Great point.  I hope this happens.  Tailgating with you farkers would be awesome.


The wheels are turning. What has been set in motion can not be stopped. There shall be copious amounts of boozing. There shall be nipple rings. There shall by idols that even the gods have not seen.

I didn't want to jinx it so I never mentioned it, but I was afraid the weight they took out of the Gen6 and the increased range of rear camber would make it a better road course car. Which is the opposite of what makes NASCAR on road courses fun. It's not a huge difference, but it's been noticeable in the half of the race I watched. Lots of saves that wouldn't have been made in last year's vehicles.

Oh well. Road courses are still the short tracks of new NASCAR, as far as beating and banging, retaliation, and impatience goes. And there's always Nationwide/trucks.

Good lord, one more caution, and Kurt is back on the lead lap!

he is driving his ass off!!

Kurt got the lap back while I was typing this. Dude is incredibly fast today. Let's just hope he can keep the speed off on this next pit stop.

I've been a passenger for at-speed laps at Sears Point.

I'm tellin ya, it's a helluva ride! you're not just driving like normal, because of all the turns. Through the carousel and the S's you're bouncing up and down while slamming to the left and right in your seat. And coming off the S's into turn 11, you need to cut your speed by a good 80mph to keep from crashing in the hairpin.

It's goddamn fun, but I could never drive that track at speed, not with my bad knee. Something in me would break within a dozen laps.

I'm not sure if Nationwide has the wets any more. If I remember correctly, those were left over from a demonstration race at Motegi cup ran years earlier.

No they actually make the wets for Nationwide now. They used them at Montreal a couple of times.

I thought they only did that once (in recent times, that is) and it was a dissaster.  Crashing and spinning under caution.  It *was* fun to see, but I don't think they'll ever do it again.

I also remember hearing (I think, I could be wrong) that there are no wets for Sprint Cup and never will be.  It was a fun thing they tried once (?) for Nationwide.


They still bring wets to every Nationwide road race. They practiced on them at the Glen last year. And had wipers on for RA yesterday if needed.
