NASCAR is a bunch of sissy's.
 
I see the start of the 2012 NASCAR season at Daytona was rained out. Hmmm, imagine that.

Why don't they throw on a set of wipers, some rain tires, and send them wussies out there. If all drivers had to deal with a wet rainy track, then no one driver would have an advantage or disadvantage. They would all have to deal with the same track conditions.

And don't give me, "the cars handle like crap in the rain" excuse. Or its too dangerous. Formula 1 does it. Hell, even Superbike sends their riders out. Total downpours. And their on two wheels. Real men.

It's boring enough watching 40+ drivers all play follow the leader, driving in circles like clowns in a circus. Throwing in a rained out track might make it a little more exciting. Definitely would take more driver strategy/ability. As for the danger factor? So what. They wouldn't be able to go out and just slam gas pedal to floor and do 200mph. They would actually have to drive their cars.

All racers want perfect race conditions. Real men take the good with the bad. They mount their steed regardless of weather.

IMO, F1 is way better. Yachts in the harbor, not RV's in the infield. Just saying.

^^^No arguments from me. I quit watching NASCAR back in 1988.

I personally think 95% of the races should be road courses. Formula One is good for the glamour, but the race is usally over after the first lap. My favorite race is Monaco.

I suppose you'd like to see drag racing in the rain too? :-)

Snakebite64 03-01-2012 11:12 PM

not a bad idea ^^^^

I would watch drag racing in the rain more than without.

LMAO... You know, that's the one aspect of racing I did not take into consideration when writing the thread. And it's the only one that I can understand being "rained out" due to weather. Although, watching guys try to control 6000 horsepower on a rained out drag strip would be exciting...lol

The only two interesting races on the NASCAR circuit. Sears Point and Watkins Glen. I agree 100%. More road courses would make it more exciting. That and standing starts.

Love Monaco. And yes, once an F1 guy gets out in the lead, it is pretty hard to pass. And if that guy is Vettel, it seems to be a race for second...

Yeah, me too. I used to be a die hard NASCAR fan. Back when Dale Earnhardt was in the #3 Wrangler car. Before he was ever "The Intimidator".

I started watching F1 long ago. Can't remember exactly when, but I remember Michael Schumacher taking his first championship. He was my hero. Then I hated him. But now, I find myself once again rooting for him.

I sure wish America could put together an F1 car and team.

Daytona 500 in the rain huh. What a novel idea. 200 mph in the rain 6 inches away from the concrete wall. I don't think there are 43 herses in the Daytona area though.

I don't get the rain delays either - then again I've never gotten Nascar racing. I just prefer real driving not fair weather loop driving.

meh no concrete anymore as they are using the safer barriers. Nascar was when the Allisons Pearson Petty Yarborough Foyt Bakers Parsons Jarretts Trickle and not Cole lol etc etc

Formula1 cars will do 200mph. 1000cc Superbikes will do 200mph. That's what separates real men from rednecks.

Real men know how to drive their cars to their fullest potential in all weather conditions. If the track will not allow 200mph, then you can't go 200mph.

Rednecks know how to floor it and turn left. Whoooopeeee!!!!

buster 03-18-2012 09:03 PM

yes and they also have a 400 ft runoff and 4ft of tractor tires to run into. This is one of the stupidest posts I've ever read on here. And if you don't believe me go to youtube and search 1975 indy 500.

NASCAR doesn't need runoffs. They drive in circles. How exciting...

No need to be kidding. If the truth hurts, so be it. That is why 99% of people watch NASCAR. For the wrecks. Its the only thing that can keep one awake while watching.

Although, given the fact them rednecks can't drive in circles on a dry racetrack without crashing, maybe its a good thing they don't race in the rain. The entire race would be under caution and would last 16 hours. Probably a total of 5 guys actually finish race.
