I live less than a mile from the track & can not wait for the weekend to be over. I’ll be glad when all of the drunken idiots leave town!

This is the modern version of the Roman Circus. All they need is someone to drive by throwing bread & coins to the crowd!

Half mile... I can imagine that would be a circus. Probably worse if you’re not a motorhead. The traffic has to be awful.

Oh it is, all the highways in the area are one way to the track before the race & one way from the track after the race. Most are drunk before noon, with fights, and a lot worse going on. We do not even go all weekend long, and feel like prisoners in our own home during these weekends! We can not even let our kids play outside, on race weekends in fear of what goes on out there.
The amount of beer & hard liqure that is sold on this weekend goes up at least ten fold or more, just instant wacko just add booze.

Due to the weather situation last weekend, we never got around to (a.) thawing the Cornish hens, (b.) photographing the Cornish hens, and (c.) rotisserier ... rotisserierin ... rotisseiering

we had bratwurst. I’m gonna burn some little birds this weekend and take pictures. You can look when you get back from the folks’ :o)

I live about 15 miles from the Bristol track and with a minimum of planning I can totally avoid any inconvenience at all during the two race weeks while welcoming the multiplied millions of dollars that the fans deposit into our economy.

They don't publicize numbers of arrests during Race Week, that I have seen; but last weekend at a two day music even in downtown Johnson City, there were 86 arrests. Oddly enough, there was an interview with a beer distributor who offered that on a normal weekend he would stock 15-20 kegs for the bars, but was delivering 140 for that weekend.

Shrub’s a good driver. It will be interesting to see if he can keep up his wins working for a different team. I’d like to see him go RCR. He’s a touch wild, but he’s a great driver.... hmmmm...

Gibbs?

He’s going to be great wherever he goes... and he’s got a track record to back him. If his young and stupid wears off (yah, tell me most every good driver didn’t have that) he’s going to be around a long time.

You people in hot weather are like tea bags. Dip em in and out.

Nice and cool here in PA after some storms. Gonna get hot next week.

The race last week was the worst I have ever seen. It almost seemed fixed. They had 4 hours of daylight remaining to get some laps in. Pure Horse Puckey.

I just don't get this move. Just when he had his act and team together.

A move for more money to Gibbs seems evident.

cuz by the time race day comes, it will be showing the current weather...every time you reload this thread, the radar will update also! Planning ahead so some folks around here can HAVE ENOUGH BEER! in case it rains they got something to drink while they watch the radar thing go around and make blips on the screen. I think it has something to do with the colors.

The GRIMEY PITS FRFL Racing Team will be running the JR car in honor of him Joining up with Hendrick. This is a FIRST in the History of Grimey Pits GMC-CHEVY-NOKIA Racing! (Goggles Paisano - Head Spotter)

I think we need more air in the tires Teddy.

With all of these changes it's gonna be interisting to watch their attitudes the rest of the year.

Of course, they will all try their best. Or will they?

Personally, I don't like Jr. going to the Yankees. Ho-Humm.
