    I knew that sounded familiar before I googled it. Sure enough, I've been there before. Not a broncos fan personally, but the energy in that stadium is great.

    It used to be the best racing on the circuit until they ruined the track by reconfiguring it.

    It definitely has a manufactured quality to it, but NASCAR puts on a hell of a good show, especially in person. It's kinda like the motor racing version of Queen. You may or may not like their music, but they had a great presentation.

    contradictory for sure. The commentary alone make Phil and Paul seem genius.

    Elitists.

    Bristol in it's heyday was unique. Not unlike gladiators in the Coliseum. One racing line, 43 cars, 1/2 mile, 37 degree banking, 120mph. A race of attrition. When the field was going full song, it created a vortex like the blades of a blender. I was there one April and it started snowing. During a caution, it was snowing. After the restart, it stopped.

    I clearly remember a "commentator" declaring-

    "if that boy wants to win this race hes gonna hafta git up there and pass that there number 24 car"

    brilliant.

    That was probably DW. He's been hit on the head too many times. NASCAR's Gary Busey.

    Try letting your F1 elitist guard down and watch Daytona for a bit. Listen to the racers, not the commentators.

    But to you, that would be like watching paint dry.

    If you don't get it, you don't get it.

    true, its not my thing...Im sure those guys are talented, but I grew up watching rally cars, and Euro touring cars, etc. And obviously Im from a motorcycle racing background.

    and speaking of Daytona (or Gravetona as I prefer to call it), Ive been on the high banks at 150 mph on a 2 stroke...and I can tell you that place is garbage; but I can see how its entertaining for spectators.

    thee fact that m/c racers come from Europe to race there blows me away.

    From the top of a trailer I watched Kenny Roberts and Freddie Spencer duel it out there the year I raced my 250. Pretty bad ass.

    To drag this briefly back on topic, having knowledge about the competitors, teams, etc. makes a big difference. Under the right circumstances you don't need to be a super-powerful animal of a rider nor particularly tactically astute. You just need to know what's going on.

    E.g. my last crit last season, a bunch of us were fed up with some big team (and especially one rider from that team) dominating the weekly crit series, so a couple of our different teams formed a plan to try and even the odds a bit. The plan was to attack the race continually until we got one or more of our guys into the break, then block. A simple plan, but between our teams, we had the numbers to make it work. My teammate attacked first, practically from the gun. About a lap and a half later, the big team had just about brought him back, and I saw their main rider, my nemesis winding up to launch a big move. I followed his jump, and a guy from the team we had allied ourselves with came along as well. Boom, race over for everyone but us on lap three.

    The point being that if you were in that field and weren't on one of those three feuding teams and didn't know who you should mark, you were basically screwed. If you knew the plan, it would have been easy to follow the right move. I'm not very strong in the wind; at 124 lbs and with a very average level of talent, there's no getting around that. I'm also not a tactical genius. I don't expect to be making the right break on a regular basis in my races this year. But I knew who was strong, I had extra inside information that if I was in the break, not only my team but another team would be blocking for me, and I had just enough of a jump (barely!) to go with the strong guy at the right time and hang on for dear life for the rest of the race. Netted me a podium spot.

    So try to know your fellow racers, and know who is annoyed at whom!

    When I was 5 or 6 years old, my dad was a hobbyist motorcycle racer in east Texas. About that time, a couple young brothers named Hayden were about 9 and 11 and smoking everybody. On 600s. Then, 8 years later, I got to see the same Nicky Hayden race MotoGP in Indianapolis.

    I missed the chicane in practice at Daytona. I was following Eddie Lawson...right through an opening in the hay bales.

    I thought he was braking a bit late. He was.

    Kenny will always be the king. If for nothing else than his win at the Indy Mile on the TZ 750. Revisited with a nice cameo with Rossi:

    I ran through the chicane my last year there, in the rain. I thought I was done.
