    Bristol is far better to watch from a fan perspective.

    Your Danica report.

    She did well today. Her most impressive race so far, IMO. Daytona doesn't impress me. It's all car and little driver.

    Danica - Qualified 32nd but started 43rd because of an engine switch. Finished 12th. 26th in points.

    Stewart - Started 26th. Finished 17th. 22nd in points.

    Newman - Started 10th. Finished 31st. 23rd in points.

    Because it's banked. Higher speeds and usually a couple of grooves.

    She had a good day. Cant take that away from her. Liked how she raced her owner when he was on the outside.

    Rookie female driver goes from 43rd to 12th at Martinsville = "a good day" :lmao:

    I love how painful it is for you to give her credit for her talent.

    Painful? :lmao2: :lmao2: :lmao2:

    Painful is Romo throwing 3 picks and we lose to a battered RG3 lead Foreskin team.

    A 12th place finish - no pain at all.

    I liked Bristol a lot more when it was one groove. Drivers had no choice but to force the action.

    I've been fortunate enough to see races at Charlotte, North Wilkesboro, Talladega, Darlington, Martinsville, Richmond, Bristol, Dover and Pocono.

    Bristol, Dover and Richmond are my favorites. Pocono is my least favorite.

    I've been fortunate enough to drive a car around Pocono for 20 laps. That will make you love Pocono! :)

    Pocono is horrible, by far the most boring track there is. Speed walking is a better spectator sport than Pocono racing.

    Pocono is horrible. I wouldnt go there again if it were free.

    Richmond can be boring in person and better to watch on TV.

    Dover and Charlotte are great to go to.

    Daytona is my favorite. It used to be, but the racing there hasnt been very good for the last 10 yrs or so.

    Here's a different question. NASCAR on FOX or NASCAR on ESPN? I love Mike Joy, DW and Larry Reynolds on FOX. I can't stand it on ESPN. Those broadcasters are annoying and awful.

    I like Kyle Petty announcing races, not sure what network it is. DW? I want to punch him in the face right before the second boogity.

    Really? I like DW's boogity thing lol. I think Petty is on TBS, which is still better than ESPN.

    The boogity thing is stupid and needs to stop. But, the fox team is waaaaaaaay better than TNT (TBS?) and ESPN. Kyle Petty is awful. It takes him 15 minutes to try to explain something and he just bumbles all over himself in the process. He's such a beating.

    DW, Jeff Hammond and Larry McReynolds have forgotten more about racing than Kyle Petty will ever know.

    The FOX coverage is the only one that is bearable.

    Kyle Petty, Wally Dallenbach, and that lil clown, Bestwick, on TBS/TNT are awful. I dont follow it much once they switch over from FOX. The combo of not so good racing now, and terrible coverage is more than I care to tolerate.

    I just heard about this last week.........:D

    [youtube]6V7GJdn9rZE[/youtube]

    Eldora Speedway and NASCAR announced today another milestone event in the legendary half-mile oval's rich history as the 60-year-old track will play host to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2013. The Inaugural Mudsummer Classic on Wednesday, July 24 will mark the first NASCAR-sanctioned National Tour event held on dirt since September 1970 in Raleigh, N.C.

    "Eldora typically hosts 10 different touring series each year, and we're very proud to have NASCAR join the list of series that will compete at our track," said Tony Stewart, the three-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion and owner of Eldora Speedway. "NASCAR's history began in the sands of Daytona and on the dirt of the Carolinas, and having the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on the dirt at Eldora brings that history back to a new generation of fans, as well as Eldora's own fan base.

    Petty's fine, just not red neck enough for some fans.
