BIG BOSS HOSS
Not a big NASCAR fan but the fathers day race in Sonoma was fun to watch. Our own Kasey Kahne from Enumclaw WA won the race - on a road course.
sabastien loeb did actually say that :sadbanana:This is Fookin Hilarious!! Cam, remember you PMed me friday for help, and I said I was out the door soon on a trip? Well, that trip was to INFINEON, yes I was at the race, yes if F****n ruled, yes, you all really dont get it, Oh this thread ROCKS....There was video of IROC porsches as part of the warmup....I have a pic of my wife "drifting" her wheelchair in Turn 11....Didnt Ayrton Senna start off in stock cars? Didnt Juan Manuel Fangio? Didnt Loeb(Current WRC Dominator) once say racing stock cars was "too hard"?
Thats like alot of sporting events actually. I was never a fan of Hockey until I went to a game...what a drunken brawl! It was a blast.i think i need to experience a nascar race one day!
yes it did actually happened once LOL in japan i believe, they pretty much had to stop the whole race because the drivers couldnt handle the conditions of the rain hahaLike to see those Nascar guys on rain tires. LOL!
Not to get all top gun on you, but to quote Robert Duvall from 'Days of Thunder'yes it did actually happened once LOL in japan i believe, they pretty much had to stop the whole race because the drivers couldnt handle the conditions of the rain haha
eh i believe real racing is rally racing, next is f1. wrc drivers have to go through the hardest and most dangerous stages all around the world for racing. its not just about tarmac wet/dry lap racing like f1, but the best driver in all conditions going as fast as possible on public roads, like wet/dry/mud gravel, wet/dry/icy tarmac. common there's nothing that beats it.You guys want real racing watch Formula 1. Thats real racing i have tons of respect for those drivers not to mention Danica Patrick woot woot. :naughty: Wow.

"You're driving a car with twice the weight on half of the tires" or something to that effect. I do like F1 racing, but there are great differences in the two cars. Stock cars do not generate near the downforce that an F1 car does. They also are racing in a car that weighs nearly twice what the F1 does and the tires are no where near the same width of the F1 tires. Hence in rain, the stock cars tend to hydroplane a lot quicker and easier than the F1 cars. I love watching the F1 cars running in the rain. The rooster tails off of the tires are most impressive.
Speaking of F1 racing, everybody remember this shell commercial?
My favorite is the second car from :23 to about :55 Although the 3rd car is pretty hot!
