That's why we plan a MC trip that weekend every year. Roads are clogged, restraunts are jammed, hotels are full and we live within 5 miles of the Texas Motor Speedway. During the race, if I go outside and the weather conditions are correct, I can hear the drone of the race cars! Talk about an economic boom to any town.
I love racing of all types but the NASCAR races with restricter plates are getting boting. Its like watching a prade of vehicles on the freeway. When one vehicle spins it takes out too many innocent vehicles and scatters the hopes of many trying to work their way through the pack. My favorite is usually taken out. I would rather see them cut the engine size drastically (3 Liters or lower) and let them do what they want with the engines. Overdoing it with engine mods has always been the equalizer because it takes longevity as well as speed to win. I am not interested viewing a parade. Anyone routing for Derick Cope this year?
