I feel bad for Jr.

Because of NASCARs past race maipulation, you never know if a win is really legit.

Well, JR didn't win so your case is shattered... It was however pretty amazing that NASCAR made all those wrecks around Jr. and fixed it so he escaped everyone of them.... :roll:

I think that was the smallest finishing field I have ever seen for NASCAR.... like 12 whole cars....

The stands were absolutely packed...I guess they got their moneys worth if they were there for the wrecks...

His comment was about all the :tin: idiots who were already saying those things....

and...he did not 'escape' all of the wrecks; thus the issue on the last laps as he ran into his teammate's rear bumper during the cluster that happened with Chase and Daniel....

How many red flags?

Yeah yeah yeah....and I knew a guy who won big in Vegas, so that shatters the case that the odds favor the house. :banghead:


If NASCAR didn't manipulate the races so much, there wouldn't be so many people with legitimacy questions.

But, they do. So, there are.

There were at least three red flags. That race - I hesitate to even call it racing - was shameful for NASCAR. I guess it's a good thing NASCAR has no shame these days. I didn't watch, I listened as we were outside burning a woodpile and doing some general brush cleanup that was long overdue.

On the upside, NASCAR got them lots of footage for ticket sales advertisements next year. I hear the crowd was good, but everybody knows why that was the case. This was the last time an Earnhardt was going to be racing at Talladega. An Earnhardt worth a damn at any rate. I came close to going myself, just to see it one more time. I'll just have to live on memories of a special race weekend at that joint back in 1999.

Ya know, I remember the first time I took the family to Talladega. Four tickets, I think the prices came to $300 and that was before we filled the car, bought the camping gear and the food and everything else we needed to do a four day race weekend up there.

I had a lot to lose if the guy I went to see run well or win, got wrecked out and never had the chance at either. This was back in the mid 90's and it wasn't cheap then.

So there we have it, two guys that didn't watch criticizing the race.... Yeah, it amazes me.... You don't watch it cause you don't like it, I get that, but to not watch and criticize what you didn't see totally befuddles me....

I watched the last crash to the finish.

That's all I needed. No need to waste time on the entire farce. Unlike you. :wave:

That's why I record it.... to watch, commercial free.... but my statement still stands, I'm no less befuddled...

I understand not watching it cause you don't like it, I do the same for Football, Basketball and baseball... they're all ridiculous, grown ups getting paid for a kids game and yahoos paying to see it and then the players whine about it... I see the whining but that's about it and I rarely ever comment .... why? because I don't watch the games... that's why I don't understand..
