"The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading..." and I need to make it clear that restrictor plate racing isn't going away. As usual, yesterday's GEICO 500 was quite the show of excitement and carnage. We saw cars upside down and a whole gaggle of cars caught up in one wreck, 37 lead changes among 17 different drivers and mayhem coming to the finish line.
TALLADEGA, Ala. -- In the 12 years I went to races as just a fan, I can't say I attended one that resulted in a first-time winner. But in just my second year on the NASCAR beat, that changed.
"The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading..." and I need to unload on who's been performing and who's been lacking so far in 2016.
The point I'm driving at here is that the race track is a dangerous place and you must have constant awareness of your surroundings. If you don't, you're going to get yourself injured or killed. If fans continue to not pay attention, NASCAR will start coming down harder on you and make hot passes harder to get.
BRISTOL, Tenn. -- One term I've heard used by those attending the Short Track Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway this past weekend has been "Corporate NASCAR," meaning NASCAR's desires to grow the sport has made it lose touch with the interests and desires of its core fans. After watching yet another lackluster All-Star Race that was overhyped by both NASCAR and Charlotte Motor Speedway, I believe there's truth to that "Corporate NASCAR" label.
"The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading..." and I need to unload my thoughts on the idea of a relegation-esque system for the charters.
"The white-zone is for immediate loading and unloading..." and I need to address a rather disturbing trend of "fans" wishing death to a sport they claim to "love."
"The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading..." and I need to unload on the idiotic decision to go to one green-white-checker attempt.
