i think that its a risk that the fans take much like us motorcyclist, shit happens but since the track is willing to take care of medical bills and what not then leave it alone. that is why the country is in the shape its in. when i had my wreck on the bike because the guy didn't stop at the end of aisle way in a parking lot and broadsided me. since it was private property no fault ticket was issued so had to sue for medical bills and bike repair and loss of pay due to being out of work with a shattered ankle but that was it. no suing for millions and that crap. so my answer is i don't think they should be plus

i'm so mad at myself right now. I missed out the awesome qualifying session for the all star race. I even missed out on the re-run! I'm loving the fact that they let the drivers go all out in the pits and get it slowed down. Just wish i could find it online. All i can find are the videos fans took which is alright with me. You can't beat the sound of a big, downshifting v8.

Yeh, you missed some interesting stuff. Was cool to see them dive off the track at speed, then watch them modulate throttle and brake while trying to be sure they came to a complete stop in their box. A couple of interesting pit procedure modifications (jack passed over the car roof), but no one really came up with much success.

So who's gonna win tonight at Daytona? My picks Dale Jr; he's came in 2nd place out of the last 4 races at Daytona, been running very consistantly and is needs a win. (DVR'd so I'm at lap 50). I miss the old bump-drafting, it was much more interesting & entertaining!

I loved Kyle Petty's remarks this week on racehub and in the media about Danica, it was funny as hell but the truth.

Can't wait to go to the Bristol Night Race for the 5th year in a row. I live in Indy & go to the Brickyard every year but Bristol is 10 times better!

I like the nationwide race better then the cup race.

Long 500 mile races give some guys a chance to get torwards the front. The pitstops are entertaining also, as a lot of action goes on.
