Default NASCAR 2016....

GOLLLLLLLLY..... SHEZZZZAM..... Y'ALL.....

A friend of mine here, another older single guy/motor head...
Just bragging he is going to spending a lot of February in Florida..

Several races before, then the Daytona race....

I don't follow it... But it gives me the chance to use all my best hillbilly NASCAR fan jokes just to needle him... He does John Deere tractor jokes on me....

Anyway... Maybe it is a sign of spring finely coming...

Enjoy...

I've never been terribly impressed with NASCAR. You see, I've driven on the Dan Ryan Expressway on Chicago's south side on a Friday night. At least in NASCAR they're all going in the same direction.

But in NASCAR, you are only on the track with reasonably competent drivers....

Was it Cale Yarborough who said the secret to winning in NASCAR was to just hurry up and keep turning left?

[My favorite racing related quote was the sign over Carol Shelby's garage: "Speed Costs Money. How Fast Do You Want to Go?"]

I was also going to add above-- "in NASCAR they're also all wearing helmets."

That brings to mind the question-- Why do half the states require MC riders to wear helmets while it is illegal for car drivers to wear them?

Now NASCAR truck races they are going to throw a yellow flag every 20 minutes. That has got to be the stupidest thing they have ever came up with and they have came up with some very stupid stuff.
