i take it that 10 years ago you were a big gordon fan. and now it sucks because he's fallen off.


Umm... no. Honestly I didn't really have one favorite driver...

the racing as it is has been better than the last 10 years guys. i'm not sure where the comments are coming from. it's been easier to pass, goodyear has brought some better tires, all around it's a better product.

ticket prices are down. the only thing i see as a black eye is kentucky and the debacle up there. and high concession prices.

but the action on the track is considerably better than the last 10 years. passing is still at a premium at certain tracks but it's getting much better.

Now my wife was a big Gordon fan... she met him at Myrtle Beach speedway way back in like 1991 when they still raced Busch there.

There's a lot of things playing into it.

1. The economy is poo.

2. They're in the mid-summer stretch where there's nothing but shitty races.

3. Bruton Smith keeps buying shitty tracks and forces Nascar to give them 2 dates a year.

The Kentucky date was actually taken from one of Bruton's others tracks. As well as the 2nd Texas date. He forced nothing.

Yesterday was nationwide series, todays cup crowd looks pretty full.

And jim, basic cable doesnt cost $75, and tickets are cheaper than any time i can remember.


People bitched about the cup guys running all the nationwide races, but guess what? The ratings have fallen off since a lot of the cup guys started staying in the top series.


To watch all your teams games you need the NFL network as well as ESPN. Far as I know, you still can't get the NFL network on basic cable. Not too many people can go to all races. Race tickets may not be so expensive, but the travel would cost much more. My commitment to DISH has just 1 more month. After that I am going back to whatever TV cpmes through the air. Any cable of satelite package that covers all NFL games will cost 70 per month. I am just not doing it. You go right ahead.

The hell are you babbling about nfl network in a nascar thread for? We're talking about racing, and you can still watch every race with the cheapest programming package
