    Default 2005 Nascar Nextel Cup Thread

    Here's the Nascar Thread, or to some, WWF on wheels...

    The new Dodge Charger cup car will be unveiled on the 11th of January and King Richard Petty himself will be in attendance...

    The front ends on all the makes this year are going to look funky. They are going for a bigger "greenhouse" to protect the driver.The real production Charger is the second pic...











    I really hope Kasey Kahne or Ryan Newman wins the Championship this year, but it could really be anybody with the Chase in place.

    I agree with Wray, go back to the old points system.

    Oh and change the name back to Winston Cup, I just cant get used to the Nextell Cup. Wasnt Nextell just bought out by another Cell Company??

    Do you guys feel NASCAR has sold it's roots for some bandwagon
    fans? It just seems so different than it used to be when I watched
    it for a few years in the 90's.

    It's different. But everything changes.

    I'm not 100% sold on the new points chase, but NASCAR loves it. Opens up new marketing strategies, you know, cash talks. They should drop the "Chase for the Cup" and call it the "Dash For The Cash".

    They certainly do seem to have gone down a much different path, and it's not one I'm much in favour of. I can see the need for progress, but some things should've been left alone. The Southern 500 is a good example. It's hard to argue the closeness of the points race going into Homestead, but still, one has to wonder, if you have to manufacture that closeness by starting over again with 10 races to go, is something maybe wrong somewhere else? Starting with Pontiac in the mid-90s, the cars have been allowed to drift farther and farther from looking like their street counterparts, even as it was attempted to look more like their street counterparts by adding faux headlights and taillights.
    Seeing "NASCAR" slathered all over anything anymore doesn't help either. I think I liked it when it was kind of an "exclusive" club - not saying anyone shouldn't be able to follow NASCAR, but to those of us that did, it was like our little secret. Now you can't miss it on billboards and cereal boxes and soap operas and every other part of society it's blasted into.
    I dunno. I'll probably watch some of the races this year, but I just don't rearrange my schedule to accommodate it like I used to...

    I think that the popularity factor has somewhat ruined the sport. I think a lot of diehard fans wish Nascar was more like NHRA, who hasn't grown that much bigger in the last few years, but is still popular and in touch with their fans.

    I just read on the Martinsville Speedway Website that they will only allow 6x6x12 soft sided coolers and one 8x12 clear plastic bag that cannot contain ice into the track. Since 1993 we have taken a Playmate cooler filled with water and beer into the track. Last year and years before a few cans were thrown out on the track. ISC owns the track now and while I enjoy my racin this sucks for the longtime fans. Believe me 500 laps is a long race. They said it would make it easier to get the fans in. I had a feeling last year after seeing a family and mom breaking out the tupperware with the wraps and grapes for the kids. My friend and I looked at each other and chuckled. It's going to be an interesting race this year.

    I wonder if they consider frozen water bottles to be "water" or "ice"?

    Have any of you guys seen the Dale Earnhart Story? I thought ESPN did a great job with this movie. I am sure they left some stuff out but all in all I thought it was a good film.

    Considering the complexity of telling the story in under two hours, and considering how awful this could have been, I thought it was a home run. Barry Pepper did a fantastic job. And the ending, when his old man walked out of the mill and picked him up, I lost it. But I'm a sap like that.

    I had a chance to be an extra, but I didn't want to go to the mall, stand in line for hours, have them say, "You a race fan? (Yeah) Okay....", all for a couple of split-second crowd shots, which is basically how it went, from what a couple of people told me who did it.
