G'racing day/night y'all.

 

https%3A%2F%2Fcdn.cnn.com%2Fcnnnext%2Fda

 

One of the most well known, important and mythical races of the whole Motorsport year is upon us if it doesn't rain so I came out of the Nascar room of the forum to make this thread in order to fish out some other lost souls for some turnleft fun.

 

Tune in all ye every other series fan refuge to the clusterbump that plate racing has become and witness hype & despair.

Here's a video to get you up to speed:

 

 

NOON

 

And on an actual serious note, this race marks 20 years from one of the most tragic days in Motorsport where, in the 2001 Daytona 500 we lost one of the legends of our beloved sport, so gather around and let's toast to one of the best doing fastest laps in the tracks in the sky. God speed, Dale.

Let's have a good one and *triple sacred boogity*

I didn’t know Harley Earl was the 2nd commissioner of Nascar.

At the risk of saying something I've said before, I miss the days when I'd just turn on the TV set, put it on WCAX Channel 3 (CBS, Burlington, VT) and five to ten minutes later the green flag had fallen.

Michael Waltrip is an actual cardboard cutout. I always knew.

 

I do love anthem time. Cannot wait to hear it in person.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The only reason Richard Petty has 200 wins is because David Pearson ran partial seasons.

Lovely, my first nascar race in ages and almost the first thing I see is a guy in the pitlane who makes the white supremacy fingercircle while raising his three fingers.

Their pre-race adage to Pitbull, shows that they won't.

Maybe one for the crazy stats thread, causing a caution on the 31st anniversary of winning said race? Lol

 Micheal Waltrip being Larry from Newhart in disguise would explain a great many things.

No, as Sterling Marlin learned in 2002.

 

This happened to Jimme Johnson for the same thing at Talladega in 2017:
