I met up with PJ at the Nascar race yesterday. Great guy. I look forward to meeting other TT Members out here on the road.

I was the biggest NASCAR fan years ago. I went to a ton of races, including the '98 Daytona 500 that Earnhardt had won.

Nowadays, NASCAR would make an exceptional case study in how to completely destroy an entertainment brand, or how to watch your own ship sink slowly beneath you.

They asked a driver recently what they need to do to get the fans to come back to the races. He said he wasn't sure. Well that's obvious!

I am a dyed in the wool racing fan. Have been since I was about 10 years old. If it goes fast and makes lots of noise, I'm in. Cars, boats, planes. All good in my book.

I always was too. I used to watch NASCAR when it was on Wide World Of Sports in the 70's and they'd only show it a few minutes at a time. Grew up going to the local tracks. Even did a tiny bit of racing myself.

But NASCAR nowadays for me is completely unwatchable. I still love the cars themselves but the racing, the tracks they run, the points garbage, and the boring, generic cookie cutter drivers are unbearable.

I like NHRA a lot better.

I would still watch NASCAR if it was remotely like it used to be back in the day.

Hey, the cars are still super cool and I love racing! I don't mean to sound like a Debbie Downer but man, I just used to be such a huuuuuge fan and I wish it was like it used to be.

I wish they'd hire me to be the Director of Operations. I'd show em how it's done!

Hey, on the bright side, tickets are super easy to get now and once you get in you can choose almost any seat you like! You can move around and get all different views! The lines aren't long at the refreshment stands or the bathrooms, and it doesn't take so long to get in and out of the parking lots.

It's never been less of a hassle to be a NASCAR fan.

Good times.

Hate to say it, but I agree with Brett here. I watched all the races this year and complete garbage. The downforce package they have is basically get out front and drive away.....I am considering toss'n in the towel on watching it....

To each his own. I enjoy the hell out of it. Brett enjoys Mountain Climbing, you may enjoy football or basket ball. None of those are my cup of tea so to speak.

Brett,

You are invited to the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals, Friday September 27 at the Gateway International Raceway. Luxury box right behind the tree, all you want to eat and drink. And I can arrange for a personal meeting with Robert Hight.
