    I follow nascar quite a bit in the off season of the NFL.But once the pack start playing preseason,thats it for nascar. I am a fan of Jeff Gordon(I expect to hear from Junior fans on that!) Won't be long till Daytona starts up with a few races! Only been to the race track in the Pocono's,might go down to Dover Delware,if I am not working then. Any fans out there?

    Been down to the Daytona 500 2 times and Bristol night race once. I watched it for years but have slowly lost some interest after Big E died. That was my main man and the sport sure lost something with his passing!! :(

    He was the greatest!! That is why I root for Gordon,because everyone was a fan of his. I am just that way.I always rooted for the under dog. Thats how it was with the pack in the 70's and 80's. We have a race pool at the place my wife and I go to,so that keeps up the interest some.

    I always watch the Daytona 500; Dale Earnhardt Jr. is my favorite driver.

    Jr. will pick up where his father left off,I think.He's a good driver with a good pit crew.He will win a championship soon.I just hope that Gordon keeps winning too! :cross: :pals:

    I've followed NASCAR pretty regularly since I was about 6 or 7. That was Richard Petty's final year. He's still my favorite driver and I pull for Petty Enterprises. Although, it's been tough the last 5 years.

    I just got a new dvd called"IMAX NASCAR" it is really good! It tells alot about racing. The only thing I don't like is,it is only 48 minutes long.Great if you have a big screen tv! Cost is $15 :D

    you mean gordon's cup? maybe jimmy johnson? no one else has a shot.

    i actually prefer dirt track racing and LOVE the world of outlaws. we see them every year but maybe not this year with tickets getting jacked. last yr in fargo, me and the wife went for $72 for 3 nights. this yr, those 3 nights would cost us $240.

    Sixone220: why did it go up so much? That is a heck of an increase.

    uwbadger12000: Dale has the pole and jimmie Johnson has the outside position.The rest of the field will be decided on thursday,hopely,Jeff Gordon will get the inside on row 2. What else is there to watch now that football is done?

    Jeff Gordon is Gay. Ever hear that song? Lyrics were done by Miss Gordon herself.

    I don't care for Gordon, he's too mambie pambie. Needs to grow some nuts an say what he REALLY wants to say instead of what he is 'trained' to say.

    They all do that,or they get fined. He speaks his mind sometimes when he gets pissed off. He not like some that get into fist fights after the race. He is one of the best racers in nascar right now.believe it or not. If they did not change the way to win the cup last year,he would have won his 5th title.

    Man what a race!

    I was watching the last bout 100 laps an dale jr did nothing special at all, was in like 20-30th whole time til about 30 laps remaining he jumped to 8th and man did i get excited, i fell asleep most of the race so i was in my room on the bed an when he went up to like 5th i was yelling an pumpin my fists an all that jazz then he took fourth then third an suddenly went around gordon for the lead boy was i a yelling my *** off!! unfortunetly gordon got around him jus before the caution came out an won jr finished third. the funny part to this though, u know those little itchs u get on the side of yer ***? well when i went to itch it i felt nothing but CHEEK... some how i ripped my damn boxers!! how the heck?

    Oh well. I'm very happy Jr even got in the top five after how crappy his car was (i wasnt there but he said is car was crap) all is well til cali!!

    JR for the CUP!!!

    I just read on msn sports,that Gordon has 70 wins. I forgot how many he had,if he has a good year,it is possible to get a head of Dale Sr. by next year.

    Amen to that. Gordon only wishes he could have the fan base and respect... EARNED by Dale Earnhardt. The man will never be replaced in Nascar PERIOD. Even the so called king, Richard Petty knows he will never be higher than second when people ask who was the greatest driver ever in Nascar.
    I'm with you slick Jr. takes the cup!!!!!

    :confused: let met explain. Yes people I am a F.A.G. ...



    Fans
    Against
    Gordon!

    heh heh muwhahahaha ... lol

    On a serious note, I think he is a good driver, the thing I dont like about him, he says what he thinks he 'should' say, not what he really wants to say. I don't much like candyasspoozifooters. say what you feel ya it might get u in trouble but atleast ur not being a fake.
