    Default NASCAR Driver Predicts Another Daytona Death

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11316424/

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Defending Nextel Cup series champion Tony Stewart criticized superspeedway racing following his third-place finish in the Budweiser Shootout on Sunday, saying “we’re going to hurt somebody really, really bad.”

    Stewart said “bump drafting” was out of control, with drivers slamming into competitors heading into turns, running through them and coming out of them.

    “We’re sitting here watching TV before we came down here and they’re talking about the tribute to Dale Earnhardt,” Stewart said. “Well, five years from now we’re going to have to do another tribute to another driver because we’re probably going to kill somebody from Wednesday through Sunday."

    Rednecks still haven't learned how to drive in a circle?

    pfft, I leave my crease all the time. Though I do agree that goalies should be fair game if they venture behind the goal line. I would say that should be the case if they leave the crease at all, but sometimes you have to come out a bit farther to cut off the angle.

    He shoots he scores (Emu stays in the crease, but flopping around like a fish out of water as that is his other speciality while in between the pipes....):


    This statement is rich, considering it's coming from Tony Stewart. Pot meet kettle......

    I only flop in despiration. Other than that its pretty much all butterflly. 5 hole big enough that they can't not shoot at it, then just close it.

    You read my mind. That kid's an idiot. Kurt's not much better, either, although he seems like he wants to calm down after the police incident in Phoenix last year.

    I said on another message board last night that last year, Mark Martin complimented Kyle on running a great race at Dover. Wonder if he thinks the same thing now...

    Don't forget Jimmie Johnson that took out millions of dollars worth of competitor's equipment during the plate races last year.

    It really is those damn restrictor plates. They tried the smaller fuel cell to spread them out, but now all they do is form alliances and come in to the pits as a group, and eventually become one big pack again. The only real way to do it is to get rid of the plates so they can spread out again. It was a little better when it was the bigger plate, and the wicker over the spoiler and on the roof (and it's still used in the Busch Series) so that they could get better throttle response.

    That's a great aero package. I wish they still used it in Cup.

    Pepsi 400 weekend at Daytona for me (Rolex Sports Car Series & IROC race on the road course Thursday, Busch race Friday, Cup Saturday night). Always a ton of fun...just hope it doesn't storm. Again.

    I'd also like to go to the Busch & Truck races at IRP. I did that last year & it was fun. Wouldn't do the Brickyard 400 again...all I could see from my seats was the top of the cars as they'd shoot by. Thank God for Jumbotrons.

    Good deal. Do you camp down at Daytona?

    How about the truck race at Mansfield? Thought about going this year, but am driving to Charlotte for the Coke 600 that weekend.

    Probably Atlanta for the Spring and Fall races, and maybe Daytona in July (as much as I don't like restrictor plate racing)....I really should consider going Talladega, as it takes longer to drive to AMS from Snellville as it does out to 'Dega.

    We've got a house that we use a couple miles from the track.

    I think the Trucks at Mansfield would be pretty fun. Always wanted to go to a CTS race. Do you know if they're still selling tickets for that race? My dad & I were thinking of going to the first one in 2004 & it was standing room only, so we decided to stay home & watch it on TV.

    Looks like there's plenty of tickets available. Pretty cool booking engine with the graphical seating availability, much better than ticketmaster's.

    Thanks for the link. That graphic's better than Ticketmaster's, I agree. I bought our IRP tickets from them last year.
