Anyone else pumped up that NASCAR is less than a month away?

Page 4 of 2017 was the first year I ever watched NASCAR (and my favorite Formula 1). All I can say is I am so glad I opened my mind to the world of Auto Racing. ... 56 comments | 1276 Views | Go to page 1 →

    I am thinking about sneaking down to KY Speedway one night, probably for Xfinity or Trucks, and then zipping back home. I am only interested in the race. Sorta like going to a Bengals game, I am only interested in the game and not really the tailgating or other hoopla.
    At Sparta, I think I would choose trucks over Xfinity. Just my opinion.

    Eldora is the Daytona of dirt racing, much like Talladega the camping for World/Dream weekend can be an event in itself.

    I went to 53 dirt races this past summer, as I help a friend with his car. I wouldn't trade a $30 dirt race ticket, for a Nascar ticket any day of the week.

    Even though I grew up in a town that hosts two NASCAR races every year, I've never been able to get into the sport. Much of my family back home, are huge fans, but I just can't watch more than a few minutes of it at time. About 15 years ago, at a former job, there were a bunch of NASCAR fans, and they talked me into playing in a NASCAR fantasy league. Despite not watching much at all, I'm did keep up with the drivers and what was going on, and somehow managed to win the league.

    DAYTONA 5 - Daytona International Speedway

    A couple of takeaways from this article: the last 2 years the 500 was sold out. The other-Dale Earnhardt Jr will be there as Grand Marshal for the 60th Anniversary of the running of the 500.

    I can't say I'm a diehard nascar fan but I do enjoy watching a good race. I've been to the 500 before & was not let down.
