they'd have to reorganise the whole lineup. and usually more than one car goes to the back.

Junior wrecks in practice going to backup car.


It will be an even greater story and Nascar will make even more money when he comes from the back to win the Daytona 500 on the 10-year anniversary of his father's death.

Agreed. Hendrick, Nascar, the fans, ESPN all want him to win.

Nascar needs a kick in the arse. he could literally save the sport.


sports dont involve motorized vehicles, anyone of those little squeakers would be on a gurney in a real sport

Cool story bro. I guess you don't take into account that it is a physical skill to be able to drive at those speeds.

http://dd88.org/nasc...r-training.html

By the time a driver has earned a position as a NASCAR Sprint series driver he needs very little training on the best way to get around a race track. Many of them started driving as preteens in go-karts and have advanced through all kinds of race cars on all kinds of tracks.

Physical conditioning and training is another matter. You don’t think NASCAR drivers are athletes? Try their job. The season has 36 races that count for points toward the championship. There are 5 other races that most drivers participate in which don’t count in standings but have large financial and status rewards. Many of these races are 500 miles long and one is 600 miles. In car temperatures are routinely 120 degrees and you are wearing a five layer fire suit and gloves. Going into the high banked curves on the large tracks at speeds near 200 mph drivers are routinely pulling 3 g’s. That means that if you weigh 200 lbs you have 600 lbs pushing you sideways.
Most of the current NASCAR drivers have strenuous physical conditioning programs designed and sometimes supervised by physical training professionals. These programs often combine weight and aerobic programs for overall conditioning. Most drivers train 5-6 days a week and have diet programs that compliment the physical training.

Physical training promotes mental conditioning which is a large part of driver training. You cannot be thinking about the fishing trip you are going on Tuesday while going around a one mile oval at 180 mph with 43 other cars. The result of loosing focus and concentration can be dramatic



sounds pretty athletic to me

Dabo Swinney doesn't think so.



“I have a new appreciation for what those guys do,” Swinney said. “There is no doubt you have to be a conditioned athlete to do that for two to three hours on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon during a NASCAR race. That was quite an experience and we weren’t racing in traffic today.”

Running back Jamie Harper came out of his car and stood on his vehicle with his arms raised in triumph as if he had just won a race.

“It was like a roller coaster on that thing,” Harper said after his ride. “You think you are going to run into the wall, and then shoot down the track. It was crazy. There is nothing else like that. There is nothing else you can do and get that same feeling.”
