NASCAR is starting to suck.......

Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems to me the TV and the powers that be are ruining NASCAR......the production is so big that the show comes on an hour before the race starts, some of the announcers have no idea what they are talking about, just run their mouth, the rules change so often that it is hard to understand, fuel cell sizes, tires,you can only run this tire or that tire, etc....there is always a caution near the end...debris on the track, someone must throw it out on the track, I think the races are starting to be scripted...now we are going to have the "car of tomorrow" so all the cars will be the same........pretty soon the races will be run on a computer and scripted....guess its time to watch wrestling......JMO SC

What you guys need is a real race track nearby. This was taken on March 3rd at the one where my son and I are tech inspectors.

If you can only see a box with a red "x" in it, right click on the "x" and select "Show picture."

Yeah, but can a drag car smoke its left rear while going sideways on CLAY? But as a former drag racer, I agree that they are awesome unless that chicken sh-t "bracket racing" crap is involved.

Rick, that was the same #59.

You mean like that one?

No, I didn't take them - I'm not much of a photographer and struggle to take the ones that I do take for my articles right. Central Pennsylvania is blessed with an abundance of 410 sprint cars teams that give the Outlaws a hard time as well as several good photogs who post their work for free viewing and downloading on the Williams Grove Speedway website.

Click on the link above, click on Message Board and scroll down to the Picture Forums and select "Open-Wheeled Cars". You'll find hundreds of excellent photos there and the selection will grow as the season unfolds. We've only had one race around here thus far, and most of the ones there are from that March 3rd show at Lincoln Speedway, where my son and I are tech inspectors.

Rick - it's only dirt and it washes off! They come out looking like this one.

Seriously, the trick is to scrape the heavy clay deposits from everywhere with a plastic spatula-like gadget every time the car comes off the track. Then when the races are over, remove the air filtration system from the injector stacks and bag the magneto before leaving the race track. Then you stop at the local high-pressure car wash before the remaining clay on the car dries and hardens. A few bucks later, you have a clean-as-new race car!

It will come out even cleaner if, prior to taking the car onto the track, everything receives a good coating of a substance that can best be described as baby oil in a pump sprayer. The stuff is sold for the purpose of keeping clay from sticking to the car and really helps with the post-race clean-up chores.
