OT: Highlander and Nick Discuss NASCAR and Things

I know there is only a minority of people on here into this, but I feel like I have been clogging up the other forums talking about it.

What does everyone thing about the rest of this season? This past weekends Talladega race may be the best one that I have seen in awhile. Here's to hoping Martinsville is a good show next weekend.

As per usual, the good guy (Hamlin) finishes ahead of the bad guy (Logano).

Denny because he is from Va, Blaney because he raced the VT car

Blaney also drives for Woods Brothers Racing, who got started and still has some offices and a museum in Stuart, Va. (He's moving to Penske next season though...so enjoy it while it lasts.) But actually know the guy who was basically the sole reason Tech sponsored the car for a few races. Filthy, stinky rich.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Annnd, another little known fact: It was Bud Foster himself who convinced Whit Babcock(who was not in favor of it it first) to go for the VT sponsored car. God Bless Bud. I can just see him now in Babcock's office, explaining to him the true meaning of NASCAR.

I drove your boy down the the Intimidator at Kings Dominion on a golf cart. He wasn't as talkative as I would have hoped.

Excuse me sir this is a sports page, why are we talking about NASCAR? /s

Dega was insane. They moved that race a weekend up in hopes it would tone it down some, with it not being an elimination race. That was easily top 3 craziest races I've ever seen there. Just carnage lol

Martinsville is gonna be good. Probably a tick cold by checkers, but I don't care...seeing it finish under the lights is gonna be so damn hype.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

We have had really good luck with weather for the fall race. Much better than the spring race normally is. But I am being told that it is looking quite cool for next weekend, with an offhand chance at some flurries.

Extremely lucky. Haven't had a rainout since spring 2010 if I remember correctly, which leads into my ultimate pet peeve: folks who complain about the weather. I swear every other person in the area when asked if they're going or not "naw man! You know it's gonna rain!" They're calling for sunny and 68... "naw man, always rains for Martinsville!" Just say you're cheap you dumb sob oooooo it makes me so angry.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

It was definitely 2010 as that was the only Martinsville race I've ever been to only tailgated for

Was at the Modified race at Martinsville under the lights and it was a beautiful thing. Looking forward to next weekend. What year was it that it flurried on and off, was it Fall 2013 or Spring 2014?

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Spring. That was right before we started camping every race. We stayed at my families house with the intentions of camping. We all ended up in the basement that night it was so cold and windy.

That one was rough to sit through, I didn't have near enough layers. Only thing that kept me warm was the multitude of hot dogs.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

I believe they also did a double header for the Cup Race and then Truck race. We thought it was an awesome idea to stay for both, until it got crazy cold and windy.

We made it about half way through the truck race before we packed it in. It was brutal.

Were you at the modified race back in the mid 2000's when they brought in the temporary lights? That was pretty cool. Late Model last month was really cool too. Lights at the clip look awesome.

I was. Went to the game that day, then sprinted down the mountain for that. Open wheel mods are fassst here...but the track never could make a dime off those races, thus why they don't run here anymore

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Yeah that's why Martinsville doesn't get the weekend late model races like South Boston and the like.

I was at the spring race at Martinsville years ago when it was 100 degrees and a pothole opened up on the track. We had to sit in the heat for 3 hours under a red flag watching concrete dry. I think I'd take the flurries.

"We were at the pinnacle, and we did it for years," Foster says. He pauses, nods, takes a deep breath. "And I did it with the best guy in the business."

Nascar ain't that fun to me anymore Jeff Gordon was the only person I would cheer for

I feed off of nightmares

That's was my man till the day he retired. Crazy dominant from the mid 90s to early 2000s. But the sport has some damn good talent coming up. Very young, but good.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

When I do watch it I usually cheer for Chase Elliott or Kyle Larson

I feed off of nightmares

Chase made a move at Talladega sunday that gave evidence that he is in possession of basketball sized testicles.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Jeff Gordon IS a great race car driver. Equally as great statistically (ok, in my mind), but way better in NASCAR lore is Bill Elliott. Back when drivers helped manage their teams n were under the cars regularly (RIP Alan Kulwicki), and there wasn't a thing called restrictor plates, he won based on speed n guts (as did The Eliminator, God rest his soul). He came bak from 2 laps down in one of the best Daytona races EVER! He drove the fastest car EVER (212 mph lap)! And his son, Chase, has his gift. I'm lovin watchin Chase grow. NASCAR was better in the 80s...

Pain is Temporary, Chicks Dig Scars
Glory is Forever, Let's Go Hokies!!

Without restrictor plates, nascar wouldn't be a sport anymore, or at least not in the sense it is today. 200mph is incredibly dangerous even with the safety precautions they have in place. Let's say they were to build upon that 212 mark set back then, 230-240mph wouldn't be out of the realm of thought today...that's just scary. Take the Carl Edwards and Austin Dillon crashes. Had they not had the plates in place, just imagine where their cars could've and likely would've ended. While I'm not a fan of many of the rules the sanctioning body has placed on the sport over the years, I'd say that one has saved many more lives than it has cost.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Denny Hamlin...VT is why I got into Nascar, my friends and I would go to Martinsville for every race...start drinking at 8 am.

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

Haven't watched NASCAR in probably a season and a half.

"Stock" car racing my ass.

Endlessly changing rules.

Toyota threatens to pull out, then they start cleaning up? Yeah, that's not suspicious.

IOW, Get off my lawn.

NASCAR on tv is not the same. NBC is especially terrible coverage. NASCAR in person is still as glorious as it used to be. Hard to keep away. I do not disagree with what you said, though. Believe me I miss NASCAR of the late 90s and early 2000s

With so much rain last night, gonna be interesting to see what team can make the adjustments on a random line to get up there and knock off Truex. Having "multiple" lines is ok, but more times than not, one line ends up taking over. I'd love to see Blaney find it.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Kyle Larson just blew it. Literally. That sucks for him.

Really does. Truex has dominated the season, hands down. Larson has been right on his tail all year. Shame someone like Kenseth is still alive while he's done.

Maybe he has one last vengeful move on his mind for Martinsville.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

I have a feeling Martinsville is shaping up to be good this year. And I think it's going to be quite full cause of the whole Dale Jr thing.

The track is throwing out enough deals on tickets too, there's no excuse for folks not to show up. The 3pm start is badass for tailgating though. I'm gonna be s'turnt.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

With a finish user the lights, that whole place is gonna be s'turnt.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

And thus starts Martinsville Chase week. Lesssssgo.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Hell yes! I called JR winning this race as soon as he announced his retirement. Lets see what happens. If he does he will depart this earth on the back of a giant bald eagle, I'm sure.

It was, like, 2 years before he finally did win Martinsville with a out 20 to go. I looked around the suite *making it rain motion* and said "if he wins, they'll burn this track to ground. If someone wrecks his ass for the win, they'll burn this town to the ground."

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

I think that was our first time RV camping for Martinsville (growing up there I had no reason to and we just made day trips as I got older). That place was wild Sunday night after his win. That's what I want this time but even more.

Thank god Truex didnt have to answer questions about Sherry in that post race interview. He still had tough stuff to deal with, but man the bring that poor girl up every time and it really seems like he doesn't want to talk about it. It does seem like he can't ever just celebrate a win because it is a win.

I can totally understand why...but holy shit, propose already. They've been together forever, they've been thru hell together...and she's SUPER hot in my book

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

I cant confirm, but I feel like I read, or heard, or something..that it is her decision while facing the illness. Which if true is very sad and I really hope she can conquer it.

And I have to agree, very attractive and just seems super cool too. I feel like he would really open up personality wise too if not having to worry about that all the time.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Forecast ain't looking too hot for the weekend...might actually get a night race out of it lol

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

The models have been slowing the weekend rain (potentially flirting with a mix) down a bit. For right now, I think the race still starts on time, but if the trend continues...I'm all about a night race! It's gonna be cold, though.

Road by on my way home yesterday evening, looked like a hell of a crowd all around.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Rode through the campground today, it's a good looking crowd. If the rain keeps moving we might avoid it too! But if anything it might delay it which means more light time.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Just parked below the tracks, gonna walk thru the campground and try and spot a shakey key flag.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

We're here! No TKP flag though.

We put a Tech flag up, come find us!

Shit! Ok...Practice is over, running over

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

NASCAR!

Looks like the weather could make this race more of a night event than originally planned. Nobody get stuck in the mud out there.

I'm a casual fan at best these days, but the end of the Talladega race a few weeks ago was insane. Camping at Bristol last year for the game made me want to check out a race there one day.

We ran back down the mountain after the half to beat the rain in Martinsville. From the sound of it we made a good choice. Duck pond was spilling over into lot 18 from what I hear.

About 18in of water rolling between Lion's Club Lot and the Beamer Barn on that little path. Then nearly the whole bottom field of the lot was flooded...incredibly thankful we didn't have to park down there. BUT IT'S RACEDAYYYY. DING DONG!!!

Wow. I can't even describe my current hatred for Denny.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

I've never loved the kid more. Warms my heart seeing the 24 put into the wall, even if it's no longer Gordon.

I found my rival

I feed off of nightmares

Let's look at the replay....

Early on in the clip, Denny tries to pass Elliot on the turn but slides to the top behind him, then on the next turn, Denny tries to go inside, but Chase blocks him and puts on the brake. I understand the frustration, but I don't understand how you can claim what Denny did was egregious, but accept what Chase did almost two laps earlier to Kesolowski as "Hard Racing".
I also am pissed at Denny because he took out Ryan Blaney before the checkered flag and caused him to lose about 3 spots in the race, which is like 6 or 7 points
Also, Denny is a Virginian and I will forever question him being booed at his home track on a 50/50 wreck.

You put those words together, those are my favorite words, Popeyes and bahama
- Mike Burnup

but Chase blocks him and puts on the brake

I'm sorry but that is simply ridiculous. Chase is in the prime position to get his first NASCAR win ever, and lock his place into the playoff final at Homestead. No way is he going to brake check Hamlin. First of all, if you want to brake check someone you do it like Trevor Bayne did to chase earlier in the race: i.e. coming off the corner into the straightaway when everyone is accelerating. Brake checking into a corner is asking to be wrecked...again, no way Chase did that.

Hamlin had a run that chase blocked and hamlin never let up, sending chase into the corner. Hamlin is a 5 time winner at Martinsville and knew exactly what he was doing which is why it is egregious. Look no further than Harvick racing Blaney or Keselowski racing Chase before that run. They both were bumping and banging into the corners but backed off enough to not crash the leading driver. If hamlin bumped chase to get him loose that's one thing, but this time he 100% dumped him and that is why everyone is so pissed.

What Chase did to Keselowski was 100% short track racing, you get the inside, drive them up a lane and pass them down the stretch. You didn't see Kes coming over to confront chase after the race because he knows that's just aggressive short track racing. Dumping a play-off contender and effectively eliminating him from the finals unless he wins or other drivers have bad luck is just not classy. I guarantee you if Hamlin took that line and that speed going into the turn without Chase in front of him, he would not have been able to make it stick and would have shot up the track through the corner. He deliberately over drove it into the corner knowing he would hit chase and just never let up.

I will admit, that I am not the most knowledgeable person on NASCAR
A leg to you, good sir

I will say, three wide racing and passing on the outside at Martinsville is not something I have seen alot of at that place. The race it self was a ton of fun despite being cold.

Man. I just want Chase to win one, but I'm happy for Matt.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

I honestly hate that man. But he might be the most under appreciated driver of all time. He is a freakin wheelman, no if's ands or but's about it.

So...Truex, Rowdy, The Harv, and Bad Brad. The unprecented run Truex has been on 1.5milers this season, Kyle being the 1.5miler stud he's always been, Harvick always closing, and Kes having a knack for elimination races, who ya got going into Homestead??

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

If Truex can't win it this year I don't think he ever will. I feel like it will probably be Busch, though.

Forreal. Homestead be career defining one way or the other. He either becomes a champion and moves on with the chance of becoming a small legend, or someone else wins, becomes a legend, and he, likely, will have a slump next season.

I watched it once by myself, had a tear or two. Forced the wife to view it, I started tearing up, said "you get the idea" and closed it. The sport obviously has immense talent without Junior and Kenseth (and danica lolol) in there, but no one quite as endearing as Junior to pick up the torch, seemingly. NASCAR has struggled for nearly a decade, without their showpony out there, I'm worried. Fuck it. This is gonna be a great race. Let's go.

If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous! With treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid...

I'm married but brunch and hiking the shennadoah(?) that morning are involved. That'll be part of my apology come Saturday morning.

Yeah no girl has fallen into any of the traps I have set so far, so I am still rocking the single life. Got close a few times though.

How the hell are Larson's brakes on fire at a 1.5m ? Especially with the line he runs

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

I think we are setting up for a good finish. I will have been wrong if Harvick wins this.

Why is he so good?

I still cant believe Samantha let Kyle do that to her.

Brad going wring way...but so was Jimmie last year. Gots to be another caution.

'Bout time for some "debris".

Good for that dude. Talk about I guy I used to consider a no name

Coming out iof the Busch series, honestly thought he'd be lights out good...took him a while but holy shit, absurdly deserving.

Dude could not be stopped this year.

Okay. Them bringing back that gem of a commercial just capped off the whole night.

Been in the air all day, got to see the final few laps and man I'm happy for Martin. I think I'm even happier that Brad didn't win.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Glad you watched and fuck you.

Its Joey Logano that we hate. I have a crazy amount of number 2 diecasts. But they are all Rusty Wallace.

Hahaha Brad is a Pollock like myself. I have no beef with him.

I had the flu once in middle school during speed weeks. Happiest, terribly sick, I've ever been. 10/10 would have again.

Or even January, I'll take some Rolex 24 action.

In case you need more of a reason to love the guy

Watched that last night. Touching. And one of the few reporters who could get away with drinking on air lol

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

I will have to find the clip, but if you haven't seen the Jamie Little interview with Martin Truex, where his whole crew comes up and crashes it with a ton of drinks..it was a good one too.

South Terrace at Martinsville is official closed now. And we are all sad cause they were the best seats and we all had private porta potties.

Yeeeep. Our electricians are over there taking power out of parts of 3&4 too. Makes me sad. I can almost understand taking them out of 3&4, but the terrace makes zero sense to me.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Crap, we just re-seated over there. No concessions perhaps?

Planning on taking some of those seats out as well I believe. Not too sure where though, wasn't in that meeting, probably a good thing...I think I would've cried or fought someone.

The era of College Football has ended. Let the Age of NASCAR begin.

Seriously this is the most boring time of year for sports. NFL playoffs just don't really do it for me.

I can actually see the backside of 1 & 2 of Martinsville right now (sup). That's one of the many things I love about the sport...very, veryyy short offseason.

It better be fucking warm for the spring race, seeing as the fall race was one of the coldest i remember.

It'll probably be mid 60s all week, then upper 40s Sunday.

Idk, I've just never gotten into it. I'm sure it's a blast inside the car, but as a spectator it's very meh, at least for me.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

I never cared until I went two years ago. It was amazing especially at night.

I got up and checked TKP this morning and definitely do not remember posting this. But it about sums it up.

Maybe it was your brother. I hear that happens around here.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

Dumbass lol looking like a good crowd down there?
