I tried to stick it out, but after the Bubba deal and his accusations I gave up. NASCARs reaction to the deal made me sick. Iíll never watch it again

There is no shortage of talent on the track currently. They are so refined in presentation and speaking there is an assumption they know very little about building cars unlike the vintage group of drivers.

I give the racing so far this season a 2.5 out of 5.

Funny thing, Nascar, on a way, got it's start in MD.
We had an insane amount of dirt tracks here back in the 40s and 50s.
Bill France raced here as a kid, growing up.
Even on the old, wooden " board tracks".

He moved to Florida, and the rest is, as they say, history.

Reds Kagle was a fixture at local tracks until he passed.
He had a sorta bad wreck 60 years ago.
Some of you old timers may recall him.

Elmo Langely was around a lot too.

Not quite that old but I remember a paved Dover and wooden bleachers that held about 3500 people. lol

I think NASCAR has always sucked, Stock car racing was much in the AAA. Earnhardt was a very over-rated as a driver.

I gotta say, that Kyle Larson is stunningly phenomenal. Guys that can do what he does in a race car only come around about once every 20 years or so. You won't get to witness much his talent watching him race jalopies, though.

Nascar has no draw to me. When I hear a loud car, I assume there is something wrong with it. Gives me a headache...

I have no idea how well Kyle Larson does at washing cars. Does that really matter? Dale Earnhardt couldn't ride a cushion if it was six feet wide.

You might want to check out some of Larson's in-car camera videos on the utubes - the ones where he drives racecars - not some roley-poley, overweight, underpowered, turtle car.

Yup those turtle cars are easy to drive. Look how many wins those open wheel guys Kinser, Blaney and Montoya rang up when they drove them.

Larson is a racer, make no mistake about that. Other things in life, he might not measure up, but as a racer he's top of any list.

From midgets at the chilli bowl when hundreds of the best professional midget drivers are there, to winged sprint race against the world of outlaws to the allstars which are the very best sprint car racers in the world to non-winged sprint cars against USAC's best to dirt latemodels against the very best touring drivers, he's won at them all in the last year or so.

He made his dirt latemodel debut at Port Royal against the Lucas oil series and was going for the lead on the last lap when he hit the fence, finishing 3rd, to winning the next night on his second ever start. Impressive to say the least about his talent driving ANY racecar against full timers in their genre.
