Rub it in, Eric! Thats awesome you were there. That was some race, wow. Typical Taladega. No reason for that 1st big one, w/ so few laps. Thats great that David Regan won w/ his team mate finishing 2nd. Giliahand (38) really gave him a push=wow. That was the best shovel of the race & when it counted to, up the middle.

Dega is on my bucket list! I'd really like to go to the fall race this year.

Man that was one hell of race or rather last lap. Good for David Ragen though, he seems like really nice guy!

So what'd you guys think? Better than Daytona? I think so. Busch's flip was insane. Glad to see 3 blue ovals in the top 3. Just wish NASCAR would fix the racing a little more so the bottom line can actually push forward.

O and question. You saw they reinforced the area where the fence can break. Do you think fans have a right to sue if something like that happens again? I personally don't think so. They know the risk of sitting that close to the track so they shouldn't have that ability.

America's legal system in so messed up when it comes to lawsuits, it's not even funny. It's people choice to put their lives in danger but when something does happen, it's always someone else's fault.

Great race and great ending. Hey, I even got to help put a new door on a car during the rain delay. lol

It really doesn't matter what nascar does, someone is always wanting something different. Do you want pack racing or tandem racing. To give you an idea, look at Nationwide vs the cup cars. A lot less blocking w/ tandem racing. It comes down to the fans= what do you want?

So many people are sue happy now a days. Its basic common sense, you'd think its ok & no problem sitting there. Look at the baja races including the 1000, people are right there standing while the cars go whizzing by.
