My grandparents have a bunch of those posters framed at their house too, including that one.

They are indeed

(I'm sure all 6 people who post itt are aware of the backstory, but if you're not, take a close look at Tim Richmond)

It would be hilarious if it was Penske that offered him the drive.

I wonder if Penske would've made him chop his stache off

My guess is John Menard made the offer

Alright, sure.


That track was always hilarious in NR2002/2003. The best part was the continuity, where the stands were being built in 2002 and completed in 2003.

Nah, it was a loving awesome fictitious track from the early Papyrus NASCAR PC games. That vid also owns though.

Won't tracks just tarp the backside of their speedways and just sell the frontstretch and the turns? Or even cut it in half, sell from Turn 4 down to Turn 1 and call it a day? Still I'm sure there are a few tracks that would struggle to hit 70% with even that but I can't imagine it would be too many.

Yeah it'd probably be like what the A's do with Mt Davis

Been watching racing most of my life, and this is one of like only 3 wrecks I've seen live where I immediately thought I just watched someone die. Thankfully that wasn't the case.

I saw that Grissom wreck live when I was a kid also. Thankfully it was clear that he was alright pretty quickly.

That Park/Foyt wreck still gets me, though. My jaw dropped when they came back from commercial and had the white sheets around Park's car.

I vaguely remember a Busch race or an ARCA race where someone went over a wall and landed outside the track but I have no idea who it would have been.

Probably Jimmy Horton at Talladega. Dude walked away pretty much unhurt while Stan Smith nearly died of a basilar skull fracture in the same crash.

I'd think natural grass would be the best thing to fall off into if you're a bike racer. Obv less abrasive than tarmac and less likely than gravel to send you violently tumbling.

How many tracks are stock cars and bikes sharing? I'm not being a smart rear end, I legitimately don't know.

Off the top of my head:
-Road America (which has a chicane before the kink for bikes)
-Indy (which goes the opposite direction of the Indy/Xfinity track and also has a separate bike loop)
-Daytona (only for the Daytona 200, which used to be a bfd but is now basically a club race since the big bikes outgrew it and began shredding tires on the banking)
-Mosport (Not sure if the Pinty's guys still race there, but that track is horribly dangerous for bikes)

This could be a golden opportunity for NASCAR to draw casual fans back because there sure as hell won't be much else on in the sports world this weekend.

Best case scenario, it'll be like when WWE got Smackdown on Fox. Big debut of people who realize "holy poo poo, this crap is awful" and don't come back.
