    Default 2012 Motorsports Thread

    I was surprised to see the 2011 edition still open...

    I'm so excited Formula One is returning to the United States next year on November 18th, 2012 to the outskirts of Austin, TX for the US Grand Prix.

    I'm even more excited that I am living less than a half hour from the new circuit that is currently being built.

    Anyone who is thinking of attending the race, pm me and I will do anything I can to help you figure out the best plan of action for being able to fully enjoy the race weekend here in TX...

    I'm so happy!!! This is a great day for American F1 fans!!!

    Not a fan of either Busch but both can wheel a car. I'm curious how he does in non-premeire equipment. No slight to Finch but Roush, Penske, etc he ain't. As for the 2-car tandems, yeah I hope they get that sorted so it's gone. Hopefully there will be a happy medium somewhere in there that we get actual racing as opposed to trains, be they 2 or 20 cars in length. NASCAR mandated some changes for off-season but I don't recall exactly what they were. Seems when I read them though that it made sense for breaking up the tandems.

    From what I read Nascar made a change to the radiators the cars will run at Daytona and Details. They made them smaller so the cars will over heat faster if they are tandem drafting.

    If I am wrong please correct me. I just skimmed the article.

    The Shrub at 202.402.... they were haulin it today. Plus at least thy tried to run by themselves. Plus got to see Richard Petty's 200th win on Speed. The shot of air force one landing with President Reagan landing during the race must have been so cool to see from the top of a motorhome and the stands during that race... Glad to see them running again.......

    NASCAR has eliminated car-to-car chatter. That's a good thing. I always felt that flew squarely in the face of competition. Should be "I'll put my car on the track, you put your car on the track, and let's see which one of us can go faster", not "ok, you get in front and lead for awhile"

    Glad to hear that Billy, when I watched the Petty 200th win special they talked with Petty and Yarborough about the last few laps and it was interesting to hear how he won that race. He actually slowed down and then mashed the gas on the last lap. I don't believe that would not occur with the radio to radio bull shit. Glad to see this happen!

    I really think kurt busch may have a good season with phoenix racing. My prediction is 1 win and either making the chase or just missing it. I didn't know phoenix ran Hendricks equipment. I think getting canned from penski and offers not pouring in was a huge wake up call.

    Not saying I'm a fan, just saying I think he is someone to watch.

    Anyone here know when the BTCC kicks off? I like to catch the races that get posted on youtube cause that stuff is just crazy fun to watch.

    Looking forward to the NASCAR season. Haven't gotten to keep track much with the winter testing due to not having Speed anymore, but glad it's back.

    Also looking forward to the F1 season. Bruno Senna in a Williams in interesting given the history, but he has his families blessing.

    No doubt he'll be watched a lot, if for no other reason than to see if he goes on a tirade.
