[welcome]

I looked for a Nascar thread but couldn't find anything. Hopefully there's enough fans on here to make this a fun ongoing thread.

I'll start by stating AJ Allmindinger is a DUMB[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]! He ruined his career and a Penske ride all bc he wanted to take prescription speed medication that's cleary against the rules & he knew so! You'd a thought he would have had a little more respect for the sport and learned my that idiot Jeremy Mayfields mistakes.

Went to the Brickyard last Sunday and it was AWESOME, really a great race! Johnson dominated and is now a 4 time Brickyard champion. I'm not personally a "five time" fan but you gotta give the guy respect, bc he's talented as hell, a class act and great for the sport.

Dale Jr's in the points lead for the 1st time since 10/2004 (GO JR NATION), now he just needs to win a couple more races and hopefully he'll win the championship! If not him maybe Smoke will repeat?

Anyone going to the Bristol Night Race on 8/25? Will be my 3rd year in a row and THE best place to watch a live Nascar race; IMO of course. Hopefully my man Tony "smoke" Stewart pulls out a win at Bristol! That'll make my Bistol 2012 weekend all the more better!

So let's hear from all you Nascar fans...

Just to get this out there early: Jr is way overrated. In 2004 (the first year I really followed the sport), he may have been worth all the hype, but now, he's just an average driver who gets above average exposure.

And yeah, I'd love to go to Bristol someday if in fact the new track does improve the racing again. I got a little boring the past couple years.

I'm a fan of car racing, including NASCAR. I have a number of issues with NASCAR, but it has it's moments too.

I was a JR fan until he went to Hendrick.

I am a Brian Vickers fan. I was a REDBULL Racing fan until they folded.

With that being said, I am very disappointed with AJ. How the hell do you throw all he had away? But, I digress...

So, discuss away... ;)

[nutkick] What was A.J. thinking? I wish I was getting paid big bucks to drive a race car. He will never be back in Nascar. Even if Nascar lets him in, there is not an owner that will take a chance on him. Besides he has never ran good enough to keep his ride.

As far as Dale Jr, go Dale go! I would love to see him win the championship. But that is not going to happen. And yes he is over rated, but I would still like to see him win the cup. But he can not win enough races this year to make that happen.
I am a Ford guy so that being said I think Matt K. is going to win the championship for Ford. And then go drive for the enemy [gunfire] toyota next year.

Also my pick for Pocono Carl Edwards. And I look for the Biff to run top 5.

Go Roush. [race]

I was looking forward to watching AJ in a Ford again next year but that obviously won't happen anymore. I don't know who will be in the 22 next year, but I can almost guaranty it won't be Hornish.

The Biff & Kensith are the top Roush drivers, where Edward's

Cousin Carl hasn't been doing great compared to the Biff Or Kensith.

I think they are referring to the consensus that he's still not good enough for a high profile ride
^^ This.

AJ had flashes of potential while still at Petty, but outside of Nationwide, Hornish hasn't been more that a mid pack driver who also happened to crash a lot.

Wow, I just looked at the news. That is some crazy, sad stuff there.

^^ No not at all. Especially when there is only one team running the motors and chassis out of the entire field. Dodge started going down after Evernham left.

But it's still a bit of a bummer to loose one of the brands. I'm not a Dodge fan, but I hope Nascar never goes the way of WRC were it's just two competing brands. There's no fun in that.

Thats no good

Thats no good ^^^^ It'd be great if Penske built motors for other people, like say RPM since they don't do their own motors. Or if Dodge could pick up the slack.

No they will probably down size the motors to turbo v6's in the future so they can incorperate Nissan, Honda and Hyundai. I hope they don't but they way everything is going, who knows. Just like Formula One and Indycar when they downsized the motors. I dont think it will be better racing, might even be a downfall acually.

Whats up w/ that? ^^^^ This is nascar your talking about. If they want to play, then they'll have to bring v/8's. I w/ lots of fans can't see nothing but v/8's for nascar. Look at the Assie Super cars, Can you see them w/ v/6 turbo's? Same thing.

Problem is that Honda, and Hyundai dont make a production v8 or have a v8 block setup. I'm not saying its what they will do, I was just making a educated guess. Who knows with everyone going green or suppose to be.
