    *** Official Brickyard 400 Thread *** Raceday

    NASCAR on ESPN 1:15 PM Ea.

    I have mixed emotions every year for stock cars on the big flat oval at Indy. The new Gen 6 cars have brought more speed and hopefully keep the cars closer to each other.

    let me know when they stop going fast and turning left.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    No sure what the crowd is, but very spread out and lots of open spaces. I know the stands hold 250k, but looks sparse.

    Attendance certainly doesn't look good. Half full is still 100k and more than any other sport attract for a single event. Most races out here on the east are still suffering in attendance as well, Bristol, Martinsville, Charlotte, etc. are well under what they were 10 years ago.

    I noticed a lot of empty seats as well.

    Here's something I don't get - do people go into the golf/baseball/any sport threads just to say how stupid/boring they think that sport is? I know there was a big golf thread a week or so ago, but I hate golf so I didn't read it, but I wonder if idiots do the same thing in there.

    I don't know if there is a sport with more avid fans for and against as NASCAR. It's actually good for the sport I believe. I grew up around racing and have always gotten negative feedback, but at the end of the day rating and attendance soared through the 90's at the same time no one would admit to liking or being a fan.

    was it Dale Sr.(and repeated by Kyle Busch) that used to say something to the extent of he'd rather the fans boo him than be silent cause that meant they cared? Probably the same kind of thing. I think for a lot of people it's not something they can watch and immediately understand. You have to watch for a while to understand some of the rules, strategy, and who's good at what tracks to really "get" it.

    Sounds like JJ is running away with it. No surprise there.

    Re: *** Official Brickyard 400 Thread *** Raceday

    That's always my response is you have to be involved to see what all plays into it. There is much more than going fast and turning left. Teams have hundreds of people working 60+ hours a week to make these things go, not to mention the drivers who families put everything they had to get to this level.

    Newman looks good but we will get a phantom caution for a G-W-C finish to Jimmies advantage. Unless someone is holding out.

    that's what I just told my husband. They'll throw a caution somewhere to let him catch up.
