I totally forgot about yesteday's Martinsville!  I just got so comfortable and lazy out in the side porch I forgot to go in and turn it on.

After checking the results I'm GLAD I did!   ;)

Then you would've HATED the 'good old days' like 1967, when Richard
Petty won 10 in a row.... Good drivers and teams have runs of success
that can last a decade. That's racin'.

Shanghai:

Richard Petty had more talent than Johnson ever will.  Johnson has more help from corporate collusion than Petty ever did!

Yes, it was a different world in many respects... but Johnson can still
wheel it. I'm no JJ fan, but he and that team consistently have what it
takes to win in the series. Jeff Gordon used to***me me off when he
did the same thing, but I didn't like Gordon. I'm still not going to
miss a race on TV. I may fall asleep in the middle of it (Pocono!) but I
won't miss it...

Ain't no such thing as a bad short track race.

Now, when you look at the 1.5 mile tracks, that's a
different story.

You're not the only one who falls asleep during Pocono.

Which 1.5 mile tracks do you consider bad?

All of them.  That's not to say there are never good races
at them, just that there are many many boring races at the
1.5 mile tracks.  And that is not so much the fault of the
track, as it is the excessive aero downforce in the cars.

The short tracks, Martinsville, Bristol, Richmond, the late
lamented N Wilks, are all too slow for aero to be the ***
factor.  That means cars can run side by side and nose to
tail.  Drivers can make bold moves in traffic, and daring
passes.  And when those bold moves turn out to be spectacular
errors in judgement, instead of broken vertebrae you get
wrinkled sheet metal and rankled tempers.

It's always a good show on the short tracks.  It's only on
the big tracks that you get everyone spaced out a second
apart, just droning around logging laps until the next pit
stop.  Nascar'd be a lot better off if they tore up every
track built in the last 20 years - Kansas, Joliet, Vegas,
Kentucky, Texas, Fontana - and replaced each of them with
a half or 3/4 mile track.
