Man, I could use a set too.

once the powder settles in the track and sticks , they should be OK.. or so they hope. be a shame to run out of t’ars

They were just talking about Rubby's car catching far and attributed it to tar "powder"? I'd never heard of it being referred to like that before. Usually rubber chunklets is the form that it usually took, seems to me. They just showed some of this ground-up tar by-products freshly retrieved from the track sweeper. That is wierd. How's come Tony doesn't run in the Nationwide Series hardly at all anymore?

I scored some "free" tickets to Charlotte a few years ago. We were on the bottom row, on the first turn. The track was just low enough that we saw the tops of the cars go by.

By the end of the 600 miler, we had a black coating all over. It took two showers to remove that rubber "grit"...

Next time we went to Charlotte, we were on the fourth turn abut 26 rows up!

Wow. I had no idea. Ya learn something new every day. I would have thought maybe you’d be encased in some sort of exhaust-related sooty layer but I hadn’t thought that there would be rubber involved.

Reports have said the surface is very abrasive and they don’t run here very often and don’t test here at all so the tar compound is in essence, grinding off.

Grandsons have collected “marbles”, the normal wear from the tars, from multiple trips to TMS. Wife say we have enough to make a full set now.

I was just happen to be watching the Indy Car race. Dannica Patrick was running in 9th place. Her team mate Macro Andretti was claiming she was holding him up even though it seemed to me she wasn't. He got close enough to bump her sending her off track where she stalled. He ended up damaging his front wing at lost quite a few places and had to come into the pits. She eventually got started but both ended up as back markers. Michael Andretti is the team owner. Should be some interesting team meetings this week. Don't know if she walked down to his pit. LOL

Just watched one fighter who would not give up, tho it looked like he lost a pint of blood or more. He had blood all over his chest (and shorts), and "flaps" of cut flesh, but refused to quit. Idiot.

I guess I just like that gory tuff. For the tame stuff, I could watch bingo, or Nascar!
