Well thats several hours of my life I cant get back. And, because I wanted to watch Daytona, the girlfriend made me watch the Oscars. And if you think the pre-race commentary is bad; you should try pre-Oscar commentary...holy crap.

Now; What happened with all the TRD motors going south with a few laps left? Anyone want to hazard a guess (Please leave any 'jap'-related comments at the door)?

daytona 2013

what a bunch of crap,i have bean a nascar fan,but wont bother with another detona or td. restrictor plate racing is just a bore,i to had to watch the oscars,hate to sayit but they wher better than ths race.they shoul have hauled the cars around with the haulers til 10 to go,then unloaded them.just do not understand why nascar cant spec smaller stock type engines and have a proper race. no need for 200mph carnage.

That was the most boring race ( I use the term race very loosely ) that I have ever slept through. Going round and round in a line in not racing in my book. As far as racing back in the pack on tv you can't see that.

I had 4 seats, which I had to get for both days, which at the end were over $800.00 bucks, I gave them up.That was over 10 years ago.

I would just as soon see them go back to two +two racing.

X2 on the cost. Weekend RV parking at Seattle for August Drag Racing Nationals is $650 for an RV, in the background, not even trackside, and there are only 37 spaces! Trackside, there are 70 starting at the 1,000 foot mark, is $950 for the weekend. I don't believe they have power or water hookups.

Nascar

I don't have anything against Nascar, however it is so far removed from "Stock Car" racing, what's the point of even watching anymore. The nascar engine, chassis and complete car for that matter have no actual part related to any "Stock" vehicle manufactured by anyone. Kind of like Dodge's remake of the original Charger and making it a four door, which is a design flaw in my opinion, Sorry, Now I am just rambling. Well, at least we still have drag racing where a normal guy can still build a car and go racing and have fun within budget limits.

This is something I think that would be cool,now I know they will never do this but just thinking out loud.Pick one race a year that every team when they come to the track with just a dualwheel truck and just one car.And one spare engine,plus parts. Have one day to set up your car and that's it.some of those small time guy's would kick some butt I think. Tell me if I'm wrong did I hear that the trucks race at a dirt track this year.Don't know if I'm right or not.

as far as the way the t/v does the ads and the talking over the racing. thats so you'll go to the tracks instead of sitting in a chair at home.. they found out a few years ago that the coverage was so good ,many fans desided to stay home and watch..
only fans bored are the ones that only look and follow the front 6 cars
Dude...I build race cars for a living,had hot passes in the garage a Michigan for over 10 years,helped on a Busch team back in the day,Ive been to 100 cup races! It was boring!!!Jeeze...

they acted like they were too scared to try and make a move. nascar needs to put the emphasis on the track fences now rather than slowing the cars down.
