Who is your favorite? Don't fret if I left your guy off, the only one left off on purpose was Matt Kenseth, because I know Rhonda likes him.

I voted Jimmie Johnson cause he was on Regis & Kelly this morning and he seems like a nice guy. I don't do Nascar. left turn, left turn etc.

How about Mark Martin? Our tractor we pull the 5er with was originally part of his truck fleet.:goodvibes

I voted Dale Jr. because his dad was my driver and I just followed him after Dale died. Nascar has turned into a 100% joke. I still watch the restrictor plates a little but not much. They ruined Nascar in my opinion.

We follow Dale, Jr. as well. We were huge fans of his dad's. Racing hasn't been the same since Dale died. We aren't as in to it as we use to be. It is all such a big Hollywood production. I don't think he would be very happy with the direction of the sport. It keeps going down hill. Don't even get me started on that poor excuse for a race last weekend at the Brickyard. What a joke! :headache:
Use to be I would never miss a race and we went to several a year. If I couldn't be home during the race we would be taping it and I would have it on the radio. These days if we miss it, oh well. I will look on Nascar.com to see who won. We even sell our season tickets to Richmond. Haven't been to that one since Dale, Jr. won.

I will show my age here. Bill Elliott was always my man. Although he is too old now and can't drive anymore. But at least he can usually get farther in the race than Michael Waltrip. LOL

So now as a Ford man I like Carl Edwards.

I always like Dale Sr. and I like Jr. but I won't just pull for him because of his dad. He will never be the driver his dad was.

No one will ever be the driver Dale was.

(Bill Elliott is such a nice guy- Awesome Bill from Dawsonville(sp?))

He races now and again but he is pretty much retired.

He finished 44th in that ridiculous thing they called a race last weekend.

I voted Dale Jr.....but I miss Davey Allison - he was my fave. I never really liked the Intimidator (I know, I know I'll probably be burned at the stake for that one but sorry I just didn't :scared1: )

Year before last when we were at the Atlanta fall race Mark sold us our tickets and signed everyone of them, that was pretty cool.

It would have been cooler if he had given you the tickets, then signed them.

NASCAR !!!What the heck is Nascar ???
Ain't that one of them things where you go an sit in the nose bleed section in the hot sun drink a beer and you stand up to see a car scream by and then once its gone ya sit down in the hot sun, drink another beer and wait for the car to scream around again so you can stand up again ???:rolleyes1
I've heard of that, I did that when I was 8 years old in our living room with my electric race car set on the floor ! Only my mom would'nt let me drink beer.:lmao:

I voted Stewart, he can be a real PITA but at least he speaks his mind, not like ssome of the other corporate robots.

Don't forget "front row" Joe Nemechek. He's from Lakeland, FL. Seems like a nice guy. The generation has definately changed. The drivers I liked were the one's who were raised dirt poor and worked for what they got. Todays drivers get everything handed to them. It's just like everything else. Things will change. Another thing is how Nascar made it a scripted sport. You can almost count on Jimmie, Jeff, Dale Jr and the other big name drivers winning. They've let money buy the championship instead of skill.

Yeah, don't give him any bad tires lol. I didn't watch the Brickyard but saw the news about the tires. Nascar takes your money and gives you a crappy show. Go figure. Back in the day Big Bill France probably would've ordered another race or given the fans a refund. How can they feel good about admitting, yeah we gave you a dud show at the most coveted track in history but we'll get it straight someday. This is why they don't get my money anymore.

You know, I'm not a big NASCAR fan, but I've seen a lot of these guys and met a few - my daughter has lived in Mooresville, NC for about 7 years and most of them have shops there. During race week the place is mobbed.

You're right Donnie, I've been to a few races and I was under-whelmed - the spectators give a better show! I'm more of an NFL kinda guy anyhow.

My best description is you're dying of thirst, you walk up to a vending machine and it takes your money but doesn't give you a drink. Nascar does this to the fans every week. Maybe InBev will buy them and turn it around lol.

Ok, Nascar isn't exactly my thing, so I'm not going to read 3 pages about it. Sorry if this has been mentioned.

Down near my MILs house there is a lot of stink about Dale Earnhardt, SR and how his name is being removed from various things...roads, and such. Al, you noticing any of that down there?

I dated a guy who worked for a little while for one of those drivers with a family history of driving. can't remember his name right now, but I met the SR of the family. He was out mowing the lawn. I wondered how fast he could get his John Deer.

I've been to one race. Coca-Cola 600. I think that Jeff Gordon guy won. We had box seats because some company was trying to shmooze Scott. It was nice.
