    NASCAR on Dirt!

    anybody else watching this? NASAR Truck series having a points event at Tony Stewarts Eldora track live on Speed. Pretty exciting so far, I think the top two series should put in a dirt race or two.

    The A-Main has been pretty good, but the heats had little action. I think this race is a great idea.

    It'll be Dillon vs Larson for the win.

    NASCAR needs a figure-8 dirt track.

    Re: NASCAR on Dirt!

    I've just never gotten into NASCAR. I think it has to do with the fact that I was raised in a home that didn't have wheels on it.


    a/s/l?

    Nascar and Tony Stewart are just racking in the money on the event. Tons of fans in attendance and the TV rating have to be through the roof.

    Re: NASCAR on Dirt!

    No doubt, Eldora Speedway always has fans, no doubt they would support this event. I assume this race is a mainstay on the circuit. Was hoping Kenny Shrader would be more competitive but this will get interesting between Larson and Dillion.

    Re: NASCAR on Dirt!

    My only beef is they are counting the caution laps. I know that's what they do in Nascar, but they need to not count them, since it takes 5 or 6 laps to get back going.

    I don't have cable, luckily I'm on the road for work and the Hotel has Speed!

    Austin Dillion got the win. Good green.white.checkered finish.

    Re: NASCAR on Dirt!

    Great racing. No talk of aero-push, aero-loose, clean air, etc. Just old school, bang into the next person to pass them, type racing. The Last Chance Qualifier race was the highlight of the event for me...so many "no name" guys fighting to get into a NASCAR race for the first time ever. And it was really interesting to see how well the non-dirt track guys competed with the dirt track ringers.

    Ratings, at least for SPEED, had to be through the roof.

    Really disappointed in Scott Bloomquist's finish, was hoping he would run top 10.

    Re: NASCAR on Dirt!

    I sure hope NASCAR brings a race to Knoxville soon. Rumor has it they wanted to race on dirt for awhile and it was between Eldora and Knoxville, but Eldora won because Tony Stewart owns it. I would love to see the Nationwide/Sprint Series run on dirt for a race as well.


    Hooray for Metaphors!
