    Cool NASCAR 2015 :burnout

    Yeah it that time again race fans, the season starts with the Daytona 500 on the 22nd of February. Looks like 1:00pm on Fox.
    While the sorta sitting watching hours of "goin' round" seem pointless to some, there is quite a bit of technical data that is discussed and if you happen to be mechanically inclined, paying attention will pay off.
    A good link for more info is here- http://www.nascar.com/en_us/sprint-c.../schedule.html
    The Camping World Truck Series season kicks off with their event, also at Daytona, on February 20th at 7:30 pm.

    So, enjoy and maybe learn a thing or two.....perhaps maybe even a nice nap next to the big screen while the gang roar by at 200 MPH

    Cool

    Dayton party happens every year in our neck of the woods...racing, food, buds, and beer! Next best thing to a rally! Oh yeah, plenty of race pools and side betting.

    Daytona is always my marker on the Calendar that Spring is around the corner!

    And as I sit here, looking out onto the patio with 3 foot of snow on it I need something to look forward too............

    I loose all interest in racing after the third or fourth race as its time to RIDE!

    Thumbs up

    Hey - if in the area (SE Wisconsin) around August 27-29, NASCAR comes again to Road America Race Track!

    4.1 mile road course and not an 'oval' in sight, so watch these powerful cars fight for position and often try to take some corners four-wide, which usually cannot be done and often results in one car being 'pitted' into the gravel run-off (just ask Danica Patrick!).

    http://www.roadamerica.com/buy-tickets.html

    Wander the grounds (640 acres) by foot, bike or golf-cart and view the race track from any venue you desire.

    Let's see. Jeff says this year will be his final season so NASCAR is probably going to fix it so that he can be on the pole for Daytona.

    But, the burning question is- What weight oil are they using?

    ...and are they using mineral oil, not synthetic, until the motors are broken-in?

    But where Good Year could totally control the race, by giving special tires to one team.
