What's with the no-speed-limit-on-pit-road stuff? I thought it was a safety consideration. The crews are all still there behind the wall, right? If one of the drivers racks the wall and goes over it at 120 MPH there's going to be hell to pay.

Appears to be for the lulz.

Vickers just missed his pits. The speed limit rule burns the very first driver.
 
2014-05-17 07:25:00 PM  
How many will completely miss the pit stall like Vickers?

I'm guessing 90%.

I can already imagine the chaos this will cause when certain drivers come barreling down pit road at 125mph and lock their car up trying *not* to enter the pit box in front of theirs while it is occupied... and fail.

This qualifying is screwy as f*ck
 
2014-05-17 07:26:18 PM  
Stewart blows the pits too. This is turning out to be very entertaining in spite of the dumbness of it.
 
2014-05-17 07:26:31 PM  
Smoke is
 
2014-05-17 07:26:32 PM  
Whoops, look like Stewart screwed up.

Finally got Dad to change the channel.
 
2014-05-17 07:26:56 PM  
Ok so how does this qualifying format work
 
2014-05-17 07:27:04 PM  
The no speed limit rule is only good for this qualifying session, I think.

Race conditions would be asking for death.

Three laps, with a 4 tire pit stop on the 2nd lap. Total time for qual.

Correction. Two laps. Rest the same.

Ordered mine a couple of days ago.

I want to super-vote this as "Funny" like the Redditors did for Doge.

During All-Star qualifying I suddenly recall how insanely unsafe it was when there was no pit road speed limit.
 
2014-05-17 07:35:40 PM  
Smoke scragged his transmission. Genius.

I love him to death, but *lord* can he be an idiot at times.

No, because reddit can choke on a dick.
 
2014-05-17 07:39:41 PM  
I love the fact that Dogecar got into the race over Danica - who, BTW, is sponsored by one of the biggest TECH MARKETING companies in the country.  Nice job, Go Daddy!

good_2_go: Anybody ordered a Doge crew shirt yet?


not even if someone bought it for me.

I f*cking HATE Doge
 
2014-05-17 07:40:25 PM  
Up until Ricky Rudd killed Bill Elliott's rr tire changer there were no pit road speed limits.

Why even pit? You can have the pit crew just latch onto the car with grappling hooks and just swap tires at speed! Like those refueling planes!

...have I just written some sponsor's next commercial?

No, because reddit can choke on a dick.


I love how the Reddit/4Chan/Fark is just a circle of hate
 
2014-05-17 07:41:11 PM  
Well, Denny Hamlin completely blew that pit stop right up.

You already know that, so nothing is lost. Their advertising works.

Wait, Cole Wright? Where's Jill Arrington?

Too much Denny time on pit road.

I wouldn't want it any other way :-)

Danica's fans are legitimately pissed that she's not in.  Reddit was making fun of her facebook butthurt.  Considering GoDaddy loves to send emails for every farking thing, this is awesome.  There's talk of Doge car at Talladega, and why not?  All of these races are complete crapshoots on who can win.

Yeah, but their primary spokesperson isn't in the race and a grassroots effort got in.  So they won the battle but lost the war.
 
2014-05-17 07:45:23 PM  
I want somebody from California to win in honor of the Fark Preakness thread that never was.
 
2014-05-17 07:45:43 PM  
Trannys are just getting destroyed left and right on these pits.  Good lawd.
 
2014-05-17 07:45:53 PM  
Another whiff at the pit box. Then Newman stalled it.

Someone is bound to lose it on pit road. There have already been some bobbles.

So many trannys are getting killed, GLAAD is now protesting in Charlotte.

I could definitely see her racing her own way in. She can run a good qualifier when called upon to do so. The race itself is a completely different story.

She didn't.  The qualifier was last night, and she came in 10th.

Watching these guys haul out of the pits at full throttle and make their way up through the gears is farking awesome. I now want to see a standing start in NASCAR.

/Couldn't go any worse than Indycar

Oh. I thought this was a qualifier too. Because it has the word 'qualifying' in it, you know.

Why do we even call this qualifying then? Just call it a damn time trial.

Only those who are racing tonight are qualifying.
