Again, Torts took him to a very high mountain and showed him Nationwide and all its splendor.

The Edwards rumor has been completely denied by Penske, which means we're going to have a press conference in August confirming it, aren't we?

Probably. I forget which thing they denied afew years ago, but Jayski referenced their denial and actually added something like "worth noting: they also denied moving from Pontiac to Ford, then to Dodge, Rusty retiring" and like 3 more things.

It just seems like most rumors met with immediate denial wind up being true with the exception of Harvick to Hendrick, which popped up last year.

We could watch some of the old Trans Am and one of the two IROC races that Cleveland hosted sometime.

hey NASCAR friends I'm ready to watch the one weekend of NASCAR per year as I usually do. well actually I'll watch Talladega too if I can remember when it's on.

the NASCAR calendar online is looking kind of sad. can they really not find sponsors for any of these races? currently laughing my butt off at both races in Loudon being called the "New Hampshire 301" and the "New Hampshire 300" respectively

They usually find one by the time the actual race rolls around.

Just from a random article on Jayski I realized Ford hasn't won a championship since 2004 and loving lol at that.

Also Forza 6 is probably the best NASCAR game out right now.

I've had an idea where the "teams" and "drivers" are two separate entities, and by some process the drivers rotate to a new team every week, and there is a team champion and a driver champion. It'd be loving fascinating to see who could adapt the best to shittier cars and equipment.

Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and Tony Stewart never win a title. Danica Patrick someday does (assuming she stays in longer than Junyer).

Have a lottery every December, picking a fan at random. Then, let the winner decide the rules for the following year.

When it turns out to be a garbage idea, have them publicly executed in Victory Lane at Homestead.

I put way more thought in how this could work. NASCAR takes all the sponsors to be the Official what the gently caress ever of NASCAR, give the drivers sponsors and let them race to whatever rule set. Would have to tear up any manufacturer contracts everyone has though.
