Over priced tickets
Over priced food

Too many whiny drivers
Mystery caution flags
And don't get me started on Danica or Toyota's
Yep, I am just a grumpy old guy that likes racing the way it was in the 70's
Dang, I miss Dale Earnhardt Sr.
the hotels are a big deal breaker.. most want 2 or 3 day min. we looked at bristol, as this week end is our wedding anv.. but the hotels wanted a 3 day min.. thats why the tracks empty..(when interview burton (#31) said the hotels are killing the fans ability to come out for the races as they just don't have 5-600 bucks to blow on a hotel stay..
and yes I miss BIG E.. nicest guy off the track.. but on it.. nope.. he was a racer... more should be like that..
hoping to get to the winston (what they call the allstar race now) and then the night race the next w-end.. if the hotel rates are aval for one night both times.. or I can camp..
