Are you not sports or commercial entertained?


hollywoodreporter.comView Full Size

And now its time for...


Commercials about drama!


Commercials about women problems!


Commercials about men problems!


Your weekly NASFARK checklist!  Ever changing and hopefully not interrupted by TNT needing to show 55 more commercials in between.


(Created by DanZero & bluorangefyre, with contributions from Professor Farksworth, QueenMamaBee, Mzltplx, and a bunch of other Fark racing fans!)

1) Every 25th post is "DANICA," every 500th post is "CHECKERED FLAG!" and every 1,100th post is, "Screw the gredunza, I just did the double!"
2) Somebody asking "ARE YOU NOT SPORTS ENTERTAINED?" before the 10th post
3) Somebody comes in with a humorous "left/right turn/going in circles" comment
4) BOOGITY in some form when race starts
5) Idols/Buddhas/Transformers/Reactors being fired up
6) Complaints about TNT & ESPN race coverage (or if in TNT/ESPN coverage, how bad it is and how we pine for FOX again) ONLY VALID FOR 2014!
7) While we were away
8) Green flag pit stops
9) The inevitable race commentator foul up
10) Phantom cautions
11) "Austin Dillon driving car number three... the number made famous by the late/great Dale Earnhardt."
12) MLP deployment ONLY in the following instances: sad Rainbow Dash when Princess Crumplefenders (AKA Danica) inevitably wrecks, happy Rainbow Dash if she's running in the top 20, charging Rainbow Dash if she's in the top 10, and whatever the evil pony is that is the sister of the queen pony if we need some extra mojo to help the idols and Buddhas defeat car #48
13) Complaints and such if Jimmie Johnson wins again and celebrations from his fan(s)
14) Race is official when Kvapil, Reutimann, Wise or Danica bring out the caution (can be more than one)
15) BONUS OFFICIAL RACE: Mikey brings out the yellow
16) Something to do with potato salad and/or sugar free gummi bears
17) SPECIAL BONUS: One of us is actually at the track
18) Something not meant to catch fire does
19) We are reminded about how a track is famous for The Big One/Darlington Stripe/Eating tires/Fuel Mileage races.
20) "Because #3 car"
21) Race is boring... what are you drinking?
22) "Lord baby Jesus, smite Logano's engine!"
23) Somebody asking why they don't run in the rain followed by a quick explaination why its not a good idea
24) Idol collateral damage warning
25) DanZero's commercial recap from last week and running throughout the thread
26) DOUBLE SECRET OFFICIAL RACE:  If JPM causes the caution or blows something up.

I was busy last night and had to get SOME sleep this morning..

What happened to the #7 Toyota? It was leading by a whole lap for about the first 12 hours, then something knocked it out?

Don't know exactly, but I seem to recall it going into the garage, then coming back out...then stalling again in the pits.

By that point, my BAC was in the mid 0.2's...

There's a "Sunoco Rookie of the Race" award? Do they just automatically hand that to Larson every week? Hell, I think if any of the 3 BKR drivers ever won that, I'd count that as a win for the season for them.

Yeah after that it stopped out on the course during the night and no one could find it for a while, which was funny and confusing. I think the electrics broke, not a collision.

TNT was told by NASCAR last week

"Your 20 commercial breaks, while about the same as FOX's average, WASN'T GOOD ENOUGH! Now you see why we chose NBC instead next year!"

Same story with any big oval, IMO. Short tracks and road courses are awesome live. Especially if you can walk around the road courses and check out different corners.

Well, Sao Paulo was on the schedule because some local interest businesses were willing to pay a much larger sanctioning fee, and I believe Indycar then used some of that to help with travel expenses, or at least shipping the cars. I assume a return to Brazil and a Dubai event would both be along those lines.

Meanwhile, they are "in talks" with Michigan, Phoenix, and Nashville, but they're more reluctant to cough up even the standard domestic fee.

QueenMamaBee: bluorangefyre: QueenMamaBee: Where are my Murder In The First commercials??? Chill with the boner pill ads

They're doing it to annoy you.  I'd try to DVR it but I think I'd end up with 55 minutes of commercials in a 60-minute show.

the commercials weren't too bad during the actual show. Not that they were particularly lacking, but not as bad as during the race.

Not enough shirtless hottie though


Fine...

You're assuming TNT is broadcasting a race.  They're broadcasting more commercials than you can shake a stick at.  Ten laps from halfway and I think we're at ten commercial breaks.  They're gonna squeeze in more for the second half, I'm sure.

Interesting moneyquote:
Asked about the Canadian engineers working on his race team, he said, "It's probably a larger story that the American engineering pool is very shallow right now.
"It's just very hard to get engineers with the educational background and commitment that we need to be successful at this level from the United States.
"There's certainly a shortage, not just at Penske but throughout the garage."

I think the "O, Canada" anthem as an MIS corollary of Fontana marketing heavily to Hispanic sports fans, & being quite successful.  I'll bet that's a strong reason to bring JPM back into the stockcar fold as well

The ARCA race was entertaining despite having a long green flag run. The Nationwide race was interesting strategy wise and had a nice ending.  The Truck race was probably the best oval race of the weekend so far. Le Mans was Le Mans, so it was its own thing. But when you consider the stock car races, it seems once again the Cup race will be outshined by the lower series races.

Nationwide is running Road America next weekend. We definitely need a thread for that. Especially if Villeneuve decides to enter again.

But beyond that, I still think it's time NASFARK expands to posting general motorsports threads for Friday and Saturday, or at least we make an effort to submit more truck, Nationwide, and ARCA threads.

/That said, there's still hope for this race. Strategy lulz may ensue.
