2019 "I wanna go fast!" Thread

New year, new Racin' thread. January bring about the Rolex 24 and right after that we hop in to NASCAR Speedweeks. The Roar before the 24 is this weekend and it is making me a little itchy. Also, this year we should find out the 2020 NASCAR Schedule when many of the contracts are up and we should hopefully, finally see some date reorganization. Give me that Martinsville night race already!

That's what she said?!

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

I'm here for the memes, I just stay for the football.

why was this photoshopped with the same quote?

Honestly I can't believe Rolex sponsors a NASCAR race. Something tells me there are not too many fans in the NASCAR stands wearing a Rolex

Pssst...it's not a Nascar race.

What is the Rolex 24? Horse race? Bicycles? Catamarans?

It's a mixed field with different classes all racing at once.

They don't. The Rolex is IMSA(International Motor Sports Association), which is owned by NASCAR but Sports Car racing. It is quite a different crowd than NASCAR. Except for me of course.

Sitting in Martinsville's infield at the moment actually. CANT WAIT.

I opened this thinking it would be about the pace of the offense which has been slower than I hoped

If a tree falls in Scott Stadium does it make a sound?

Yep, came here to say the exact same thing.

Me try and start a discussion about football? Y'all lost your minds. I'm not French; I love cheese.

it's because Joe Lunardi anagrams to Dale Junior

Too bad Junior has no affiliation with the remnants of DEI...

Anagram connections run deeper than business connections, I'll have you know

So the football Schedule for this coming year leaves the dates open for Richmond Fall and Martinsville Fall. And just maybe since Duke is a Friday night, the Valleystar the night after it on that Saturday assuming the dates work out. I will take it.

And Dega weekend is @GT. Not too shabby.

And I started digging into old Daytona 500s on youtube last night (it's that time of year lol). I miss the sound of the old cars so bad. Sounded like fighter jets in the packs.

Any other open wheel racing fans out there? I'll be heading down to COTA in Austin for the IndyCar race this year, and I have been to the Formula 1 race there the last 4 years.

COTA is a great track and if get the chance to go I highly recommend it (night life in Austin is awesome, and all kinds of great BBQ)

I have not been to the Moto GP race there yet but definitely want to give it a shot. Formula 1 race is awesome and always packed.

I like it all, but one of our friends is super into Indy. He has been trying to get us to go to the Indy 500 for awhile now. The Sportscar racing is the more casual side of it all for me. Formula 1 is amazing in person but I have trouble with on TV.

I have been to the Indy 500 the last 3 years. My first year was the 100th running and it is absolutely insane. I highly recommend you find your way there for that race, it is definitely a spectacle.

I started watching F1 this year (something to do before the Cup race comes on) and I enjoyed it. The budgets those teams work of are staggering. Read a Business Insider article that said in 2014 that Ferrari's budget for that season was nearly $500mil. One season.

MotoGP races are pretty awesome. We went for two years when they still raced at Indy. Haven't been to COTA yet but we did the race at Mugello last year and are going to Le Mans this year. Motorcycle races in Europe are unreal, it's a four day party that happens to have some races. I cant think of anything in the US that compares and no famous person here gets the amount of adoration that Valentino Rossi gets in Europe. When Rossi got pole last year there was so much yellow smoke being shot off at the end of qualifying by the spectators that you could barely see him going around the track.

A local legend...I had the privilege of meeting Glen and Leonard many times; they are both prime role models in Auto Racing.
