    10. Winning a race, then getting passed on the way home by some dork in a Hyundai.
    9. You're eight laps down, and the only advice your pit crew comes across with is "Go faster."
    8. Kids in the back keep asking, "Are we at Lap 236 yet?"
    7. Right in the middle of the race, your N'Sync tape gets chewed up.
    6. You're doing 200, and Letterman still passes you.
    5. After a fill-up, your pit crew doesn't give you a free NFL drinking glass.
    4. Guys who think they have a lot in common with you because they once did 70 on the Interstate.
    3. I won the Winston Cup, but did they send me any free smokes? Heck no.
    2. Tell crew chief you need to use the restroom, and he says, "Well, you should have thought of that before you left the house, mister."
    1. Guys who drive only 160 in the left-hand lane.

    I could only think of 5 ...

    5. The cussing and swearing.
    4. The fighting like its men's soap opera hour
    3. someone who gets out a car and throws back a nice cold mountain dew ... just dew it!
    2. ESPN showing the major wrecks over and over again
    1. Even the drivers's chicks fight ... I saw where a wife and girlfriend got in to is like it was a mud wrestling hoe down.

    this all adds up to ... WWE

    Hey, Pete, did you get to see any part of Ambrose running a truck at Martinsville? I knew he was going to run it, but didn't get to watch the race.

    I like Supercar racing. We get to see it every once in a while on SpeedTV.

    cc, I'm a Holden man so don't take much notice of what Ambrose gets up to ;) :D

    I don't catch much of any racing, I mainly just wait for the big one (Bathurst) and throw a tape in for that. The races are on at a bad time, I'm either in Church or asleep :(

    I reckon another 3 years of Holden wins on the mountain to give us 10 in a row then we will let a Ford win again so it doesn't get boring ;) Actually I'ld like to see Seton get a win or two, poor bloke goes out every year, is up with the pack, and something always goes wrong to knock him out.

    Something slightly on topic for a change: I don't know how many million years ago, but some mob started AUSCAR out here (an Aussie version of NASCAR (don't know if it's still going, will have to surf later ("starting in 1986 and continuing until 2001", thank you wiki)))...So anyway, I saw an ad in paper from a mob looking for drivers, being a lead-foot I went to check it out...turns out they wanted 1000 people to give $1000 each so 1 of them would have chance of getting a spot in the team. I was almost as broke then as I am now, and almost as big then as I am now and probably would not have been able to climb in car, so just didn't bother [​IMG]

    Being a cabbie is more exciting and challenging than any brand of racing anyway :eek: :D

    You mean you'd settle for a mere decade of dominance at Panorama? ;)


    I learned about that recently. Bob Jane was the driving force behind AUSCAR, bought Calder Park Raceway, opened the Goodyear Thunderdome, and convinced FIA to run the F1 Aussie Grand Prix at Adelaide.

    Took seven weeks to win the NASCAR contest in one of our local Penne-Savers.

    The only down side - it was the entry that had my mother's name on it!
