I went to NHIS today to watch open practice for the nascar cars. WOW, I thought I was flying into turn one. The drivers don't let up on the throttle until they are into the corner. When they come down the straight the engine sounds like it is just going to explode. I don't know what those v-8's rev at but I am telling you they are wound right up tight. It's really cool to stand up against the fence at the start/finish line and hear/feel the power. A far cry from are vintage stuff.................

i went to the truck race at dover in june. dovers about the same legth as nhis but with banking. we saw some cup qualifying. then the truck race. it was sort of fun to watch but overall it was pretty boring. too many rednecks, all of those people wearing the headphone things, and way too much shit to buy. i mean way too much. one weird thing was all of the people yelling at the cars as they went around. reminded me of going to the movies. and it was so damned loud. you cant talk to someone next to you. which i remembered from going there back in '86. on the good side, it was 36 bucks for 2 days of entry. and it was general admission. so its a great deal if youre a fan. we went with an english kid who goes to alot of english club races and f1 races. the first thing he said when we went in was "wow, you can see the entire track". and they wouldnt let us within about 6' of the fence.
