Phoenix

Well, today's was 3 hours of my life I'll never get back. I kept falling asleep and didn't feel like I missed anything.

For those who hate all the "Danica" talk, I was about ready to throw something through the TV if I heard one more mention of the Gordon/Bowyer thing.

What I saw was that the Daytona was FAR better. Daytona was much more like it was back in the late 60's where if you made a mistake and attempted a pass you couldn't complete, the entire field blew on past you. In today's race, there was almost no penalty for getting it wrong - a screw-up would only cost you one spot!

If you think the "good ol days" were those with Richard Petty, Cale Yarbrough, David Pearson, Hemi Superbirds and 429 Fairlane Cobras etc etc, then last week's Daytona was a 100% return to that style of racing, while today's Phoenix race was the ultimate slow motion waste of time and effort.
