SPRINT says "We will continue to sponsor this sport IF everyone involved mentions twittering at least once in every sentance they say...
they use the excuse for Brad having his cell phone in his car that his mother was not sure if he was OK after a horrific crash.. well,#1,, does she have a TV??? is she at the TRACK with him???#2,, will this be a hazard.. the guy does not remove his safety net to escape because he is trying to call his mom?... and furthermore... I have Sprint and when I am at Daytona,, you have to stand outside the stands to get service..

Maybe they can add a seat to his car and he can mommy can ride shotgun. That would give Darrel,(King of the twits), something else to talk about besides Danica.

Apparently, the word 'raincheck' is not in the NASCAR lexicon.

<quoted text>first off "sewer" is a way for water to be taken away.. SUER is a person who would indeed SUE NASCAR for endangering not only her own sons life.. but how many other people's by not calling the race before midnight when people had been on call for 2 entire days, wet and cold...Usually the BEST lap of the 500 would be the LAST one.. but since the track was damaged.. the entire last batch of laps were a parade and a waste of time even for TV fans.. The Daytona 500 is the superbowl of the sport and it deserved to not be run with half the seats empty when people who go to that race travel from far away.. do you think I was the only person to have to leave??? we passed hundreds of vehicles on Monday returning home from the race on 95 North alone... NASCAR truly screwed up with how they ran that illegitimate race IMO.. the stands will be LESS filled because of how they yanked around the fans on the stands..
TV ratings all they care about??? well, they get their wish then... because people will stay HOME to watch pathetic coverage since there is no way the TV can show all the racing continually going on in a normal Daytona 500.. you have to understand.. NASCAR uses all it can to save it's own face.. I can guarentee you the tracks will suffer financially this season and next and guess what??? without TRACKS to run around.. there is no NASCAR..NASCAR does NOT own the tracks that they end up hurting by fans deciding to NOT return.
when you go to a concert at night.. you KNOW it will end late and you PLAN... NASCAR was in hurry up mode all night to get the race in but ESPN must have given the A ok to say "Look... NASCAR is even DANGEROUS",,the FANS in the stands matter MORE than those who say "I'm going to bed,, give me the remote so I can DVR the rest"
Debi shit runs through a sewer < Get it ??? I think the poster was saying U R full of shit.

You have just cleared up a lot about you and your family. You keep stating that you would sue over this and that and now I know that I have always been right in my vision of you as a sewer. Next you give a vision of your son as a complete idiot who is incapable of knowing when to go home and when he is too tired to drive, I guess his stupidity comes from being the offspring of a sewer.
Now we get to that crap hole that you call home, Camden, N.J., I bet that you live in the Shadow of the Walt Whitman Bridge.
You are about an idiot, do you think that NASCAR is the only outdoor sport that deals with problems with the weather? What about the SanFrancisco Giant fans who bought tickets to a World Series and had to wait because of the results of a major Earthquake? You are one small minded little girl with a very inflated ego, despite what you think it is not ALL about you, your old man and your sleepy brat.
Seldom do I agree with you on anything but this post is on target. You said it well.

God, once again you are so very proud to place your ignorance on display, NASCAR does not own the tracks? Well, for your edification only Pocono is still family owned, between International Speedway Corporation and Bruton Smith, owner of Charlotte Motor Speedway they do, indeed own over 90% of the tracks run on by the Cup series.
You are so very typical of the "Johnny Come Lately" NASCAR fan, you bitch moan and cry about being put out. Do you understand that real long time fans have suffered through the heat of The Firecracker, when it was run in the middle of the day. They have camped out and I do not mean in motor homes all week in the rain to see races that have been late starting, ended early, ended under caution and posponed all together because of weather? You can cry me a river about being put out and I can not stop laughing at your poor, poor pitiful me, little whine of indignation.
If you really want to see races that are run, rain or shine, go to SCCA road races or motorcycle races where "REAL MEN and WOMEN" change to treaded tires and report to the grid. I, once, raced in rain so hard that I asked an older driver how to get through a bad turn that had about four inches of standing water on the track and he laughed and stated to pump the tires up and hope the car would float.
Feel sorry for you and your brat? Not at all, does the old saying, "Yous Pays Your Money and Takes Your Chances" ring a bell?
the France family owns Daytona,, NASCAR does NOT own the tracks.... International speedway corporation is NOT owned by NASCAR.. the France family OWNS NASCAR.. period.....
