I agree. Seems every race got to change the rule. Guess they did the change for just Talladega. Had they stayed with rule of 3 GWC My boy would have won. Later RJD

We generally travel with the trailer and then set up with this or some twisted form of it generally flying a
  • Canada flag
  • protect and serve thin blue line flag,
  • fire dept flag
  • It's 5 oclock somewhere flag
  • NB flag (which is like a pirate flag knowing who is heading the Government here)
  • Dale Jr flag
  • Mark Martin flag for old times sake
  • and several track flags where we have been at.
with exception to the track flags and driver flags - they are easily replaced because i sell them.

Have you noticed that almost every week, more and more of the seats are covered with large advertising banners trying to hide the fact that people aren't buying tickets. ten years ago there was a waiting list at most tracks. NASCAR is quickly moving away from the culture that made it was . Not unique as many companies are doing the same Harley Davidson is another.

Just got back from the FCOC rally in Charlotte, NC and camped just across the street from the Charlotte Raceway. No race the weekend we were there but took a tour of the track and Rouche and Hertrich to see how they build the cars. On the tour of the track we saw how they painted the seats each in a different color (red, white, yellow, blue) to make it look like the seats were occupied. We could see the stands and from a distance it looked like the raceway stands were filled. I guess they really are starting to feel the pinch of smaller crowds.

Must admit, as an 88 fan last week was hard to swallow! Not sure where the sport is headed, but I will still watch.

Nascar (not)

Nascar used to be a great orginization, When it really was Stock Car Racing. Now just a bunch of corporate greed,

I'm a 88 fan as well. Not only did the finish stink it wasn't on our cable so I could watch it at home. Between the stupid chase and swapping the tv coverage around its getting to be more trouble than it's worth for me.

Yes lots of fifth wheels in there! Converted school busses, pop ups, travel trailers and any type of camper
you can think of are in the infield. I've been in the infield of Charlotte go a long time now and see them all! Our friends used to bring their 5er until they just bought a motorhome.
