Yet you still hang out here and participate. You protest the activity and yet take part in it at the same time. Sounds like the definition of a politician.

Ok, I was busy watching ER, and should have typed "dough ass" instead. I couldn't remember how to spell dough - my bad.

Am I entitled to highjack my own thread? At least this is a somewhat related topic.

For your reading disgust:
http://sports.yahoo.com/nascar/news;...yhoo&type=lgns

Not being a NASCAR viewer, I had no idea any of this idiotic behavior went on. Talk about sore losers. I guess F1 fans should be happy that Schumi fans didn't act like that when Alonso won. Imagine the streets of Monte Carlo covered with broken bottles of Dom Perignon. Whew, what a sight.

Alcohol + Rednecks + Jeff Gordon Hatred = Trouble. Such a thing would never happen up in Chicagoland.

2005 USGP. There were a few morons doing the same thing.

Anyone throwing anything on a track is a complete idiot and should be banned fro life from all motorsports venues everywhere. No exceptions, no second chances, no appeal.

That was pretty cool to see. He drove a good race. It's irritating that the Road Course races have basically become fuel mileage races though.

Oh, also the COT's handle like absolute ****. I've never seen so much lock up.

He did that while conserving fuel. The pass for the lead had been set up for about 5 laps with JPM just playing with the leader until the pass.

You should go to Bristol. To get into the infield you have to walk under the stands and across the track. It gives the A-hole drunks a good clear shot at you. The last time I went I was working on the 48 car and was walking in with some friends on the 24. The drunks were throwing half full beers at us. Classy group of people. At least the car protects the driver. Crew members don't have any protection.

BTW, not all fans are that way. Probably only a small percentage in actuality but, they are like the soccer hooligans of the racing world.

I'm sure those are the same people who think Dale Jr. is a traitor for joining Hendrick.

I can't remember the exact quote, but when Jeff Gordon was asked about all the beer being thrown, he said "maybe if they were drinking something that tasted better they wouldn't be throwing it."

Help me out here. I'm not a big NASCAR fan, but I saw this same comment over on Speed TV's forum. What exactly do you mean? Aren't all races fuel mileage races to some degree? If you can get better mileage, while staying towards the front, isn't that a good thing?

Well, to a certain degree a lot of races are but, where it really screws you in NASCAR is at the road courses. Some teams can do it with two stops. Our cars could not so, we (24 &48) had to make one more stop than JPM, Harvick, Etc... Generally at most tracks there isn't a whole pit stop difference in fuel mileage. If they either lengthen or shorten the race by 5 laps it wouldn't be an issue at Sonoma either.

In these cars you don't gain enough time being light on fuel (because they weigh as much as a tank even with no fuel) to make up the disadvantage of having to stop more frequently.

Thanks for the explanation. Being a big F1 fan, I'm very used to fuel strategy being a major factor in the race. I don't watch NASCAR enough to pay attention to the details, though I am a Jeff Gordon fan (mostly because most NASCAR fans can't stand him!).
