yes i miss rockingham also, always was the 2nd race of the season. my favorite was 1996 when bobby hamilton driving pettys STP 43 bumped earnhardt for the lead in turn 4. then the next lap around in turn 4 bobby hamilton tapped the wall, lol. then earnhardt went on to win the race with a little bit of that petty blue scuffed on the right front. and 1994 when earnhardt clinched the title in the fall race with around 18 laps to go holding off rick mast for the win.

I came in from the yard and sat down for a 5 minute break with a coffee. Clicked on the tube and did a bit of channel surfing. Stopped and watched two laps of 40 mph demo derby at Bristol and then hit the "next channel" button. If I wanna watch THAT kind of racing there is a figure 8 track not too far away. Did any cars survive long enuff to actually win? Did anyone get up to 50 mph?

I enjoyed it for the most part. Corner speeds were in the high 90/low 100 mph range. Any time you put 43 stock cars w/800 hp on a 1/2 mile concrete 'clip, there's gonna be hurt feelings. And bent sheetmetal. I'd rather watch 10 Bristols than one "big one" at the beach or Talladega.

I'm the opposite there. If they're not running speeds over 180, then I'll just go get busy doing other things instead of watching. Each to his own

I used to go to bristol,charlotte,daytona and richmond every year. From the looks of the stands today I am not the only one that has lost interest in nascar.
Lets see
No bumping
Over priced tickets
Over priced food
Hotel rates are nuts for a race weekend
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.

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..
