    I think they should do more road courses. It's so awesome to see these heavy beasts slug their way around the road courses. Half of them are sideways through the corners.

    Damn it's fun to watch. As a driver, I wouldn't want to bother running ovals any more.

    This makes me like NASCAR again.

    My dad said they are running rain tires too. That must be why they are all over the damn place, and they are running without practice too. Alot of bad setups out there.

    IIRC, they use entirely different cars on the road courses.

    I agree that it's a lot more fun to watch, and should be more fun to drive. Ovals are boring in every way.

    Yeah, the setup is so different in the chassis and suspension they probably have to.

    :tongueout: Was watching what I guess was qualifying yesterday in the rain. 152mph on that long semi-straight away then watch them brake down to 50 mph for a right-hand turn...awesome. I do not watch Nascar but I could watch this all day long.

    Road course racing is the best. I don't care what you are racing... go-karts, grocery baskets, camels, NASCARs, etc.

    Crap end to the race. Carl Edwards should have backed off and let Ambrose win out of sportsmanship. Ambrose ran off every single time, he led most of the race. He ran a perfect race, and made a single mistake.

    Not a fan of that end, and the way Carl Edwards handled it, especially after causing the last caution of the day.

    I could never get into it. I do have some friends that moved to North Carolina to follow the races closer.
