Elitists are like cockroaches. A little spilled PBR and out of the woodwork they come.
spilled pbr? not cool.
Hipsters have moved on to Rolling Rock, leaving the PBR for us old men who were drinking it before those poseurs were born.
rolling rock at the horseshoe bar... good times.
pbr was the first beer i ever had. And being from Pa i had plenty of rolling rock back in the day. Now ive come full circle back to pbr.
but hipsters ruin everything-

I do like to watch the short-track stuff. The shorter the better. A lot more comes into play and you really see who has their **** together.
You might be surprised how many F1 refugees are in NASCAR. There's more money for a lot of team members in NASCAR than there is in F1 or other high levels of Euro racing, so the ones that can migrate west. F1 has _way_ more money per team, but they act like it's some sort of treat to spend 18 hours a day 350 days a year working on a car and don't want to pay. NASCAR has the work/life thing figured out a little better. It's still crazy, but at least it's liveable.
that was my 'stomping ground'...down the street were the others- the village idiot (country bar), psycho mongos, the spiral bar, downtown beirut (punk rock bar).
the memories are blurry.
I did...but didnt live there until 91-92.
I'm pretty new to this stuff, but I've had decent luck getting in breaks in RR's. These are mostly CAT4 or masters, so take that for what it's worth. At the start, I typically know of a couple guys that are strong and highly likely to initiate or bridge to a break. If they go up the road, I'll follow or blow up trying. Beyond that, I try to stay in the top 5-7 places and selectively chase. If I've feeling good, I'll chase anything with 3 guys or more. Less than that, and I might chase if I'm feeling good and want to stretch the legs or with the hope to motivate others to join. When I've initiated early breaks, it's never hard, just powering off the front for a while and getting some heat in the legs.
For those that say 4/5 races don't have breaks that often, I've seen more in the 4/5 road races I've done compared to masters. That last 3 4/5 RR's I did were all won with a break away. I made 2 of them and was in the first chase group in the 3rd. I have no shot at a sprint, so I'll kill myself all day long trying to get into breaks. Once I'm there, I'll work my but off unless I can see the group is unwilling or unable to make it happen.
