How the heck did a guy who was about 300 or so points behind the points leader get to start the chase in 1st place? If the wins were so damned important why not give him the extra points for the wins during the "regular" season instead of after the fact??

I'll tell you why. If they did then Gordon would "still" have been ahead of Johnson by 200 points. Cuz he managed to win a few races himself folks.

Dumb ass system NASCAR currently has in place IMO.

WRONG!!!

Your worst nemesis, Weezo, is watching the Budwiser Shootout wondering who she will root for this year. Dale, Jr, not as handsome as his father, could be a choice - Jeff Gordon is interesting as a winner.

And, "remember when everyone booed him" Darryl is back sportcasting with his "boogity, boogity, boogity" again. The group that sang the National Anthem were horrid, but, as hubby quipped, better than when Roseanne did it a few years back.

And, remember, Utley, Nascar Racing is the sport of GENTLEMEN DRIVERS! Is that the reason you don't like it?

Don't flatter yourself. I don't have a nemesis. The fact that you are watching NASCAR indicates that shopping at Walmart is dumbing you down---further.

One continuous left turn is not a sport.


Title: Re: NASCAR

Utley,

I've been watching races since before there were any Walmarts around here.

Take your balls and stuff them where the sun don't shine. I'll continue to enjoy men and machines testing their mettle.

BTW, silly old man, not all races are all left turns. There are road races, drag races (pretty boring), and the NTPA puts on a great show as well. Men and Machines. Motors and lubricating fuels. The smell of gasoline and burning rubber. You really don't know what you are missing by watching all those boys scraping on fake grass.

"I been watchin' races since they done invented carburetors, boy." Aren't you s'posed to spit when you talk like dat, girl?

You seem to like talking dirty, weez...

And why is that?

Is that why your first husband left?

Is that what your second husband likes?

Does he put on his greasy overalls and then slide out from under that '78 Oldsmobile you just can't part with, stand up and wipe his hands on his thighs and say, "Talk dirty to me, weezy!"?

NASCAR is not a sport.

That it is entertaining to many folks, particularly those below the Mason-Dixon line, like yourself, doesn't surprise me in the least.

Ignorance begats ignorance.



I would like to see a "pineapple cat" turned into roadkill at Daytona, though. Might pay to see that. One lower form of "culture" destroying the stray ramblings of a foul-mouthed,low-rent, ill-informed Walmart greeter in a 220 mph blaze of glory!

Skip the Colt 45, and you've got it! But you really need to top it off with an apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream.

Yesterday, the Womb Broom, Jr. won the first round of the Gaterade Duel, and will start 3rd for the Daytona race on Sunday. The racing season is off to a fine start.

Too bad about baseball, but you can always turn to a better sport at the race track!

Daytona is all about the drafting. With the cars having this new higher signature profile and the slightly larger restrictor plate, they seem to bounce around a little more than they used to. With the draft affecting them much more than in the past.

Don't flatter yourself. I don't have a nemesis. The fact that you are watching NASCAR indicates that shopping at Walmart is dumbing you down---further.

One continuous left turn is not a sport.

Beats shopping at target or Macy's and spending more for the same item. Basically just because you don't want to rub elbows with the lowlife crowd.

On the flipside I guess the perks are that you can abuse the help to make you feel ever so much more superior.

Oh, and I would imagine turning left as fast as possible(150mph) without doing a 360 is probably not quite as easy as you think. Even though you get to do it 4 or 5 hundred time a race. I'm not so much an egotist to kid myself that out of 43 drivers in the race I have do doubt as to where I would probably finish if I tried it. 43rd, and probably with a very large headache.(If I was lucky)

I agree that you are not likely to look down your nose at "lowlife", but considering the cost of tickets, you are more likely to meet more lowlives at the ballfield than a racetrack, no matter what you are racing.

It was a beautiful night for racing last night in Richmond, and the sport was at is shiney and suspenceful best. The rain that was supposed to move in later, seems never to have arrived.

How many times we sat in the stands at Richmond, often under the only piece of shade available (that was when Richmond was always run in the daytime), and watched Bobby Allison race Richard Petty and Darryll Waltrip make an *ss of himself! We used to pay $30-35 for start-finish line reserved seats, and now the tickets are about $100.

Yes...I've also been to races here in Michigan.  Ticket prices....what to think?  On the one hand, you are glad that racing has taken off, on the other, it's sort of like a favourite old cafe that has been discovered.


Title: Re: NASCAR
Post by: weezo on May 04, 2008, 01:20:38 PM
Laurie,

You put things so succinctly. It is nice to see the pretty new cars with a single main sponsor, a company you've heard of, and the drivers sometimes doing ads for their sponsors, but it has become a bit less of a "blue collar" gathering. We had had tickets for the same seats for some 7-8 years when Steve lost his eye and we were too broke to buy the tickets in time to keep our seats, so we lost them. But, during those years, we were in the same spot every Richmond race, right on the aisle where the winners walked up to the press box --- got to shake a lot of happy hands that way! But, I wonder if fans get to crowd up for autographs after a race. I've still got a Bobby Allison hat that he signed after a win at Richmond. Steve was sure I would be overlooked since I'm small, that he actually pushed me into Bobby's car, on the floorboard and the man had to help me up to get his autograph!

Ah, the good old days!

Yeah, in those days if you were a Davey Allison fan then Waltrip was an ass. If you were a Waltrip fan then Davey Allison was a whiny snot nosed entitled to fame cuz of his daddy brat. Davey had a large case of the Jones for Darrel that was for sure.

Speaking of the "old days", I remember when they actually used to still sell tickets on raceday in Martinsville. Don't know if they do that anymore. Probably not. I remember watching the folks down in turn four getting peppered with rubber that was flying over the fence. Cool place.


Title: Re: NASCAR
Post by: weezo on May 05, 2008, 12:32:41 PM
Yeah, Martinsville!

We went to a race there years ago. Don't remember who won - probably Bobby ... We went to a spring race there, and the racetrack was decked out in beautiful flowers. It was a beautiful track, compare to Richmond which had been just an extention of the state fairgrounds in Richmond.

My good friend and colleague was a Richard Petty fan. Of course, no matter how good any other driver is, they could never compare to the King! She even had her license plate say "43 For Me". She may still have that license plate on her car.

Utley,

The only way to shop "wrong" is to overpay for what you get. For me, Walmart is a good investment, a good place to shop, a good community citizen, and a good place for people to get experience before going on to a better job, or a good place to wind down your senior years still getting out and about!

Curiously, I don't remember Walmart sponsoring a car in Nascar. Maybe they have one in another racing series. Guess they don't need the extra advertising - they have enough business no matter how much you like to bad-mouth them.

Now, for your pleasure, a little reminder of a race ....

The wheels on the cars go round and round,
round and round,
round and round.
The wheels on the cars go round and round,
barely on the ground!

Hey Utley,

I'm not the only one who finds good things at Walmart.

Go to this site: http://www.stephanaschwartz.com/home.htm
on the left side, click on "Magazine Articles", and scroll down to "Saturday Night in Wal Mart's Parking Lot" for a nice story about those nice people at Wal Mart! Just "met" the author today, in a discussion on Jefferson & Hemings, and he invited me to look at his writings on Ben Franklin which are also listed with the Walmart story. Of course, I had to read that one also! If you've ever seen the PBS children's series "Wishbone", the author of that piece was the husband of the creator and writer of Wishbone.

Never know who one will meet online!

I'm sure one met "nice people" at Nazi events in the 30's also.Wal Mart is a cancer on America.They kill small town buisness ripping apart the fabric of small towns with their smiley corporate approach.That on top of the poor benefits kicking a goodly amount of their employees onto the govt dole for health care since they don't provide it.Wal Mart makes millions upon millions while the taxpayer pays for the corporate welfare they get for free.Yeah I want to shop there and support them!


Title: Re: NASCAR
Post by: weezo on May 06, 2008, 10:21:15 AM
Bosox,

Please explain why you (and Utley) choose to compare Walmart to Nazism. In what way is it similar?

As I've told Utley before, it is NOT evidence in Blackstone that the Walmart has had a deliterious effect on the town. The previous department store has moved to a larger building. The number of restaurants in town has more than doubled. There are now three dollar stores for those who want merchandise cheaper than Walmart, and to the extent that Walmart provides employment it is no different than the previous employment in the area, since few employers provide any benefits. This has always been an anti-union community, and Walmart does not change that.

I cannot speak for what happens in other communities when Walmart moves in, but I can say with certainty that Walmart has been good for Blackstone, moving it from a small, sleepy town with little local shopping, to an area-wide shopping center which has spawned a number of new businesses to accomodate a growing number of folks visiting the community.

Nothing wrong with Walmart. Some folks just hate for no good reason. They do what they're supposed to do as a business, a good job. If individual communities want them kept out they can/could do it on the political level I suppose. Legislate manditory health care into the system. We need more communism in the world. It always worked before right? Nobody ever complained about K-mart or Hills or all the other Walmartish stores that used to exist.

I shop there every week. I shop other places too.

But then, I'm a Yankee fan and part of the Evil Empire so...

I am also in an Evil Empire, but not because I like the "wrong" baseball team, but because I have absolutely no interest in ball sports whatsoever. Utley and I have already had a go-round on why I do not have the right, as an American, and hubby does not have the right, as a male, to ignore the Wonderful World of Sports other than vehicle racing.

Title: Re: NASCAR
Post by: weezo on May 06, 2008, 05:30:59 PM
Utley,

Your disdain for the only sport I find of interest is noted. Just don't say it isn't a sport! The drivers are clearly athletes, not a plump in sight. They work out when not driving as any other athlete does. Driving in a race is a grueling punishment on body and mind, just like any other sport. Driving a race car requires skill which is developed over the lifetime of the driver, just like with other athletes. And, for the icing on the cake, ESPN considers Nascar a sport, as does Direct TV, wich has special packages for racing events just like the other sports.

If you don't like racing and don't consider it a sport, why do you bother to post on a NASCAR forum? Oh, that's right, you wear your stones emblazoned on your chest and can't resist the opportunity to show them off!

Post by: weezo on May 07, 2008, 04:11:49 PM
Utley,

As I said, from what I've seen of your on the forum the past year or however long we've been together, I've never seen you learn anything from such an exercise.

I will offer that thirty years ago, before I'd ever been to a race, I didn't expect to enjoy it. I went to a race with the man who later became my husband, and half-way through the race, was up and cheering, which I'd never been induced to do at any ball game (unless it was one of my sons making the play), baseball, football or basketball.

The "dirty talk", as you should recognice, was a double entendre. Sorry to learn you ain't that 'phisticated! But, what can I expect from someone who disdains Walmart!


Title: Re: NASCAR
Post by: MrUtley3 on May 07, 2008, 10:03:13 PM
I see. So you associate NASCAR with picking up men.

Tell me, deary, what exactly were you "cheering" for? Another crash?


Title: Re: NASCAR
Post by: weezo on May 08, 2008, 01:03:29 AM
No, Utley, I was cheering for the man who ultimately won the race to win, namely Bobby Allison.

At that time, the top speed on the Richmond track was barely approaching 100 mph. Today, the racers drive cars with restrictor plates that limit them to a top speed of about 200 mph.

As for picking them up, I will only point out that at that time of my life I was picking them up and putting them down. But, among them, I did find a keeper. I will also add that I have never attended a race without the man who introduced me to the sport!

And, yes, part of the thrill of the race is seeing the crashes and then cheering when the driver disentangles himself and walks away. They are not terribly different than the tackles used in plays in football. I am not sure if there is an equivalent in baseball, but I'm sure someone with more knowledge of that alleged sport can fill in the blanks.


Title: Re: NASCAR
Post by: MrUtley3 on May 08, 2008, 07:11:19 AM
So, essentially, weezie, you were on your knees most of the race "finding your man", as it were, when suddenly you were induced to "cheer" a man in a car because he went fast in it.

Fascinating.

That is such a touching story.

I really think if NASCAR is going to become a sport, someday,  it should allow betting, like horse racing----a far superior sport in most every way.

And, no I do not think that introducing better to racing would make it more "sporting". I went to a horse race once, and had more fun watching the twits drinking champaign out of crystal and sinking in the mud up to the tops of their pumps,  than being bored by the horse races themselves.

Nobody needs to justify NASCAR. To you or anyone else.

This forum is for fans, so if you aren't one then why not hit the road??

Sure, cappy. I can leave you two fans to keep up the scintillating dialogue about your favorite "sport" that's been going on in here for months, as evidenced by the plethora of posts regarding poll positions, engines "runnin' real good", "comin' out of the third turn", "pit crews", and weather conditions, and post-race fights between drivers...

Oh, wait...there haven't been any posts on here regarding the actual "sport".

You really should be begging me to stay and keep you company.

Well so far we've talked about Allison, Waltrip, the Richmond track, Martinsville and some other things Hamurabi.

You were always a great one for spouting "what have you brought to the discussion" weren't you?? Hmmm???




Should I call "you" an asswipe now? Or don't I know you well enough yet??  ;D

Here's a typical NASCAR article:

NASCAR Racetracker

Wednesday, May 7, 2008 3:25 AM EDT
By Hope Callahan, The Warren Record
 
 
 
The old saying, "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all," pretty much describes the night for several of the Sprint Cup drivers at Richmond International Raceway.

Denny Hamlin dominated the race, leading 381 laps.Okay, so he was ahead in the number of continual left turns

With a Nationwide win from the night before, Hamlin appeared to be on his way to having a dream weekend, winning both races in his home state. A leaky right front tire dashed those dreams as Denny tried to limp his car around the track to the finish. A leaky front tire? OMG! How will he overcome? Cue the dramatic music! Btw, This happens on the Garden State Parkway about 30 times a day, too.

The tire finally blew,DANG! and Hamlin stopped on the track, bringing out the caution.

"The caution" slow down fellows...

 
NASCAR gave Hamlin a two-lap penalty for stopping on the track, and he finished a very disappointing 24th. What if he had peed on the track? Does this bring any penalties?

Denny's caution angered Junior-nation, any relation to Red Sox Nation? who accused Hamlin of bringing out the caution on purpose so his teammate, Kyle Busch, would have a shot at then-leader Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

Cheating? In racing! I'm shocked! Round up the usual suspects.

On the restart, Earnhardt was trying to hold off Busch on the high side, unusual, as most bush appears on the lower extremities  and going into turn three cliche! "turn three" cliche!,  Kyle's car got loose and slid up into Junior.

Junior probably doesn't get slud up into too often!

Many felt Kyle raced Dale Jr. a bit too hard, while others felt it was strictly a racing incident.
In other words, no one in the stands really knows what the hell is going on, anymore than the idiot writing this piece.

Dale Jr. was trying to break a 72-race winless streak at the track he last won at two years ago; instead he finished 15th.

Kyle Busch finished second and took over the points lead from Jeff Burton.

The luckiest guy of the night was Clint Bowyer, who snuck by to take the lead when Kyle Busch and Dale Jr. had their incident. Bowyer held off Busch to claim his second career win.

I don't see how you get lucky holding off bush. Usually it's the other way around.

Mark Martin had another strong run and finished third.
Yawn.

He was followed by Tony Stewart in fourth and DEI teammate Martin Truex, Jr. in fifth.
 More yawns.  

Dale Earnhardt, Inc. has picked up the option to renew Truex's contract, but Martin has not yet accepted their offer.

The rumor mill has him in talks with both Richard Childress Racing and Penske Racing Team with UPS as the sponsor.

There's news we must have.

Racing returned to Rockingham Speedway this past weekend. For the first time since 2004, a race was held at the historic track affectionately called "The Rock."

Being as there is very little else to do in the area.  

The young superstar Joey Logano dominated the event, leading 257 of 312 laps.

He was challenged briefly by the veteran Kenny Schrader, but Logano pulled away and won the event in his first ever ARCA start.

A face-off between Logano and the current star of the ARCA series, Scott Speed, never materialized. Speed was involved in an early racing accident.


Accidents! That's what we come to NASCAR for! bloody entanglements of steel and rubber and fire and acrid odors!

It is simply as dimwitted an event as possibly could be attended, short of church picnic at the Ebeneezer Ellicott Baptist Church.

Drivel-by journalism.

Cap,

I really do think you know Utley well enough, at least based on his posting around these forums, to know that he can be an "asswipe", who mistakes chasing balls for having a life. He has a real pechant for pushing his POV as the only possibility.

His bringing up the fights after a race among the aggresssive young drivers reminds me of how gentlemanly such fights are compared to the fights associated with the sport of hockey. Well, maybe, since hockey is played with a puck instead of a ball, he doesn't consider that a real sport either! And, the death of a baseball fan by another fan who'd been heckled beyond her endurance. I don't know of any disputes between fans, even when it was traditional to boo Waltrip, that resulted in the death of another fan.

Title: Re: NASCAR
Post by: weezo on May 08, 2008, 05:34:54 PM
Ut,

The only defense of the sport needed, is that there are fans of it. Some racing fans are also fans of the sports you like (simple and boring as they are), and some are like me, fans of this sport as the exclusive sport followed.

If you don't like the SPORT auto racing, which traces its origins to the chariot races of Ancient Rome. There was a lot of butting and banging back then, just as there is now with Nascar. In the US, the sport originated as an sport to hone driving skills of those who brought the hooch from the stills to the dry throats of the townsfolk. Unlike the racing involving the specially-designed racecars which is common at Indy and in many European countries, the auto-racing that became NASCAR was not a sport of the gentle class, but a sport of the ordinary folks, the rednecks, the tradesmen, and eventually their wives. This is where its origins differ from the Indy races you like. It also differs in that, at the beginning, the mechanics who made their street cars into race cars were as likely to be the drivers themselves and their family members, rather than mere employees, as in the case of the rich boys in the Indy races.

I've watched Formula One races, especially drag races, which are mostly staging and less racing, and am not inclined to spend time or money going to them.

In today's NASCAR, the cars are backed by teams and well financed by corporate sponsors. The driver may not get his hands greasy very often. But, they still put on a good show for the fans, which is what the races are all about. As with other sports and pageants, the race begins with the National Anthem sung by those with or without talent to do so, and often features an air show at the same time. The Goodyear Blimp has always been a popular viewing point both for cameras and fans. Over the years, as television has expanded from three basic networks to many, the number of races televised has risen. It is probably worth noting that NASCAR races, which more often sell out than not (attesting to their popularity), are not blocked on local television. We watched the recent Richmond race on a local Richmond station. In this way, NASCAR is much friendlier to its fans who follow the sport but may not be able to attend in person.

The means of scoring has changed over time. When I began cheering for Bobby Allison, the emphasis was on winning individual races, and the race for the annual championship was less important. Now, the scoring allows for a variety of ways for drivers to score points during a race which count towards the annual championship. There is also more of an effort to insure the safety of the drivers than back when, as well as stricter rules on what can and cannot be done to soup up a car to win the race.

It is perhaps appropriate to note that as more women take an interest in auto racing, the number of women drivers is growing. This contrasts to those boys' ball sports in which the women are relegated to a back seat and not allowed to compete directly with the boys. Viva la fems, as they demonstrate they are just as capable of putting the pedal to the metal as the men.

My cheers go out to Dale Junior, and it is not with any special knowledge that he will do well at Darlington, but just because I liked his daddy. Of course, we will hear a lot about Jeff Gordon and some of the other newer drivers. Darlington has quite a reputation as a "black lady"! A place that separates the men from the boys and the drivers from the wannabes.

Good race last night. Kyle and Biff really had the rest of the field outclassed.

Speaking of class it was really classless of the Earnhardt fans to boo Kyle. Get used to it as he seems to be the new Jeff Gordon. Waltrip kept saying he needed to reign it in a little but it ain't gonna happen with this kid.

Biffle seemed to throw his teammates under the bus with his "I give 110 percent and I wish everyone else would too" comment.

Also I am impressed with the kind of beating this new car can take and still keep on ticking without so much as a blip.

Sorry to hear about the booing from Earnhardt fans. I remember when it was Darryl who was booed, and he took it, for the most part, like a gentleman. Didn't see the race last night since I've been taking pain meds for an injury and curling up with a book before nodding off, instead of sitting up to watch tv.

Any woman that tried to play professional football at anything other than someone who kicked the bean would not last one game. Whether it be because of injury(near death experience) or getting pushed up and down the field and sucking so much the coach would have to pull her off the field.

But, you are right, I have no interest in football whatsoever. Spent years teaching high school, never going to a game. I have better things to do that sit on a cold hard bench on a cold night, watching a bunch of boys/men run around grabbing each other's balls.

There is value in watching a game, as you can use what you learn to play the game better yourself.

But your off-topic, as usual, weez.

The real issue with the NASCAR suit is that the woman was alledgedly mistreated because she was a woman and because she was black.

Something no one has yet to disprove.

Hence, the appearance of NASCAR as the last refuge of white supremecist sports fans in America remains in tact.

Tim Knox and Bud Moore have been placed on indefinite administrative paid leave.
