The Food City 500 race thread is up.

If you are on this list and do not want to be, please let me know. It is not meant to be an offense, just trying to keep from missing anyone! Thank you!

Also, if the hyperlinks look fluorescent pink, sorry!

And finally, is there anyone we can lobby at Nascar.com to make them change their useless setup. I feel really bad for their website team, but this rendition is a failure. Ugh.

Seems way early for Bristol.

Must be because global warming has extended winter here.

Howz’ the eternal loser, Danica, doing. And why do we have to call her DA-ni-ca instead of Da-NI-ca?

I am so bored with having to listen to her fan-club announcers boring us with her losing each week.

Even though she had post position a couple weeks ago, I understand that the other racers admit that she’s afraid of the other cars.

I love short tracks too, better action, pit strategy, race strategy. Keeps the attention through the whole race better.

First of all, I admit I am not a big NASCAR fan. But I have a question that has never been answered to my satisfaction by friends of mine who are fans. Maybe the knowledgeable fans here at FR can answer it.

The World Series is held at the end of the baseball season, the Super Bowl is held at the end of the football season, likewise the Stanley Cup, and the NBA finals are held at the end of their respective seasons. Why does NASCAR hold their premier event, the Daytona 500, at the beginning of the NASCAR racing season instead of at the end of the season in Nov.?

The Daytona race does not confer any official special status on the winner or count for any more points than other races. It’s just a PR celebration.

Because Nascar owns the track and being that far south the odds of better weather are above average. Before the track was built they raced on the beach there but that would have been in your great great grand dads era...

Many of the drivers say that Bristol is their favorite track. It is easy to see why.

It dates back to the days before NASCAR gained such extreme control of the car designs. You work over the winter perfecting your design and debut it at the first race of the season, setting the tone for the rest of the year. Not sure if it's still true, but the general idea in F1 racing was you know who the series champ will be within the first couple of races, barring disaster, because that team has the best car/drive combo.

Excellent report. From the article:

That could cause some delays, but I think we have enough dry time that we get today's rain in.

Fair to Partly Cloudy with occasional flying cars

Sweet went airborne after messing with Gase in Nationwide practice.

Maybe they need more flaps. :-]

Wouldn't that be 'run in'? Definition of REIGN 1 a : royal authority : sovereignty b : the dominion, sway, or influence of one resembling a monarch 2 : the time during which one (as a sovereign) reigns

Kyle Larson looks like the next Jeff Gordon/Tony Stewart/Kasey Kahne.

Running door to door with Kyle Busch around Bristol in your 4th ever Nationwide race is pretty impressive.

Hi, people. Home sick. Gonna gargle some whiskey and curl up on the couch for the race.

Terrible news last night at a local track...

Penngrove teen wrecks at Marysville race track; 2 killed

It was later reported that the 14yr. old killed was the driver's cousin.

I agree. I don’t think it will be long before Larson is a top tier driver in NASCAR.
