I think I've been in a cloud this past week. What heck are they getting rid pf preseason thunder? Geez, you know how long that has been around? Now they wanna reduce the hp and weight..

Crap, Mauro's/Blaxman will go ballastic for his Gen 6 stuff. :evil:

Can't say I'm gonna muss pre season thunder. I think it's actually a good measure, saves teams some costs, and spares drivers a boring plate test.

Weight reduction sure does suck though, then again, it's NASCAR, so what else to expect

I've always enjoyed the preseason thunder. Kinda like the playoff's going into the superbowl type of thing.

Now about the weight reduction and all that stuff, yep Nascar has really done a number in some areas for the sport.. We could probably sit here and write entire book on the subject..

But as everyone knows, they are more in it to line there pockets with as much $$ as they can. To them it's more about being a business model worth billions and making as much money as they can, instead of thinking of it as like a sport.

How about Matt Kenseth going after Brad Keselowski :lmao:

I first thought it was a crew guy, but no, it was Matt Kenseth himself.

Pretty awesome, always knew he was a badass 8)

Pretty sure I also saw him get a swift left hook in (is Matt a leftie?).

No doubt NASCAR will love it because it gives them their much desired TV drama, but it probably wasn't the best thing to do in front of a TV camera, I didn't see it but several drivers were also reportedly using their cars as weapons post race too, bet that Sprint Car drivers lawyers were loving all that.

Not sure, but don't think he is.

I tell ya the only reason Kenseth even got to him is probably because no one would have expected him to jump on BK :lmao:

The cam guy who followed them definitely deserves a raise. Bet it was the same dude, who chased Bowyer through the pits at PIR, best post race all year for sure :lol:

Right now watchin the cup race on youtube, cause I missed it on Sunday.

I tell ya, Andy Petree, Dale Jarrett and Alan Bestwick are pure torture, I can't stand these f***s.
They even worse than DW, LarryMac and Mike Joy, I think.

I hope I can make it through without stabbing myself in the ear

Well well well, F1 team threatening boycott for US GP. Doubt that it'll happen though.

But I'd really really like that, cause Circuit of the Americas is just another Hermann Tilke cashgrave and pinnacle of boredom. Certainly not deserving of a full grid of anything.
I hope F1 passes NASCAR on its way down the sewers. Or have they already? I don't know, but definitely a close race

Watkins Glen say they're gonna repave the entire venue next year :|

Guess we all know what that means. They're gonna turn it into another smooth as glas piece of shit.
They're probably gonna remove 50 percent of the tracks character. :roll:

Sure, why not double the surface width, remove all armco and grass strips, increase run off area to state borders and just turn it into a huge parking lot, where no matter how much you f**k up, a flat tire is the worst thing that can happen to you :roll:

gg :wall:

That's what the FIA does, fortunately NASCAR's lift goes nearer the top floor...
