Oh yeah? You're so fat, you had your baby pictures taken by satellite.
You're so fat, when you walked past my TV I missed three episodes of "CSI"!
You're so fat, I had to grease the door frame and hold a Twinkie on the other side just to get you through.
You're so fat, that you have been declared a natural habitat for Condors!
You're so fat, we can use the elastic in your underwear for bungee jumping!
You're so fat, you farted and launched yourself into orbit!
You're so fat, you masturbate while reading cookbooks!

Tony's "outspokenness" is wearing off...
Or the fact that everyone is fed up with this bullship is just rearing its ugly head.

NASCAR is far from "racing" anymore. Shame.

HAHAH figures winers would have to go crying and complaining as usual. Always something. NASCAR got really wild with bumpdrafting just before the COT and in fact they made the bumpers line up just for that. Now after drivers were getting carried away with it and trying it in corners, NASCAR needed to step in and try something to keep it from getting worse.

They said not to do it in turns - a very reasonable precaution, and people still did it, but not so recklessly. And throughout the rest of the race where drivers were spread out - thats the nature of the race. Its end of the season and people aren't trying to take themself out trying something stupid when the final lap is 1/2 hr away still.

I still enjoyed it cuzz Dale got some lead laps in, Gordon shuffled himself to the front a bunch of times, there was still use of bumpdrafting, but not overdoing it. And Jimmie - what can we say about him? The dude almost got top 5 and made matters worse for the competition AGAIN.

Its really too bad for those chasers though. but hey - NASCAR tried to keep it civilized and the drivers still manage to wreck. lol

Yeah, and like Kenny Wallace said "Where did they wreck? In the spots NASCAR told them they could draft. Not in the turns." So.... so much for not drafting in the turns

No, I don't think they will. He also talked about how he knew as soon as his car went backwards that he was going airborne. He threw out there that he does have a degree in engineering, and that he wished they would give him some respect for that and listen.(Not exact words, but that's the gist of it). I was so glad to hear him let loose like that! Mark Martin sounded like he wanted to go off too, but he stuck to the PC line. But his was probably for Brad K.

What has NASCAR become? The so called race yesterday was about as far from racing and competition as you can get, each and every fan, whether at the track or watching on TV had to watch 475 miles of pace laps where nobody was racing and soon to be four time champion Jimmy Johnson did not even attempt to make it look like a race.
On Saturday I drove 300 miles round trip to watch a real race at a small bull ring called Wake County Speedway where there was a big U_Car race, this is a division where they race four cylinder front wheel drive cars like Cavilers and Hondas. I enjoyed each and every lap and will drive another 250 miles next weekend to see the same group run on a dirt track near Raleigh NC.
Yesterday I switched the so called race off and watched reruns of Andy Griffith and only found out who won about 30 minutes ago. If NASCAR calls this racing then the "NASCAR Bean Counters" have won the war and the real racing people are gone with the likes of real tracks like North Wilksboro and Rockingham.
Next year when they run Dega, why not just have a 20 lap race with real racing and not force everybody to watch the hundreds of pace laps they call the rest of the race?

Awww what a big ol fat crybaby. If you don't like it, don't watch it. But don't effort to insult people's intelligence like they weren't doing near enough the same thing they've done in previous races. You act like it was altogether absolutely different from anything that's ever happened and it wasn't. Only whiny crybaby people who're still pissed about something else like Johnson Dominating need to vent and complain about NASCAR at every opportunity.

I clearly remember at least SOME previous races that start off 3 wide, go to 2 wide, and single file, shuffle around during pit stops and when cautions come, they gather up and it starts again. So basically if there's no cautions, they WILL log laps. They SHOULD be smart enough not to risk wrecking out. And Johnson isn't the first to minimize the risk by riding in back.

Anyway, how often are you going to come around and announce how you no longer watch NASCAR races? LOL Oh and your little 'I drive weeely far to watch dirt track' crap was soooo inspirational! I am really impressed by your dedication to real racing...

I agree with everything you said with one exception. NASCAR should have a 50 lap race, after all it always wants to give it's fans their money's worth!!!! I took a nap!
