A field of Google Cars trundling around for five hundred miles might be a loooooong race.

DeanT - Posted - 03/17/2017:  14:34:35


I'm thinking 250 mph crashfest!

OM45GE - Posted - 03/18/2017:  03:33:37


Wouldn't it be embarrassing if they set faster lap times?

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2017:  06:35:01


they could get rid of restrictor plates and let em loose!

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/18/2017:  08:20:12


Better move the stands WAYYY back

OM45GE - Posted - 03/18/2017:  13:22:00


The fans like being up close. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2017:  15:58:28


and crashes

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/18/2017:  16:02:54


Some fans get mad if you say people go because they want to see crashes.  I guess I'm that way about hockey and fights.

I'll be the first to admit that I watch Nascar for the crashes. If they never crashed, I wouldn't watch. That would be boring as hell.

OM45GE - Posted - 03/18/2017:  16:57:54


I'm amazed by the huge crashes that drivers walk away from in F1.

DeanT - Posted - 03/18/2017:  17:14:02


Wow! That was amazing!

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/18/2017:  17:46:27


Incredible !

OM45GE - Posted - 03/18/2017:  18:11:23


F1 used to be much more dangerous. In the 50's 60's and 70's, if someone drove every race over five years, they had a 20% chance of dying in a race car. They started making changes and, since 1994, there's only been one driver fatality.

youtu.be/w6WxOdsMpm      Canadian driver Gilles Villeneuve died in a 1982 crash in Belgium

I still can't believe Dale Earnheart died at Daytona. That crash didn't look nearly as bad as some.

OM45GE - Posted - 03/19/2017:  06:14:56


A lot of people think he would have lived if he was using a HANS device.

DeanT - Posted - 03/19/2017:  06:56:30


I've heard that too. Interesting that Carl Edwards walked away from Nascar, saying he wanted to be around for his kids.


Edited by - DeanT on 03/19/2017 06:56:47

OM45GE - Posted - 03/19/2017:  11:36:55


Right after Dale's crash, NASCAR was saying HANS wouldn't have helped him. However, the drivers started wearing them on their own and started walking away from serious crashes.  A couple years later, NASCAR mandated them.

DeanT - Posted - 03/19/2017:  18:06:24


I actually like the short tracks better, Bristol is my favorite. Lots of crashes, but they are pretty harmless. 

OM45GE - Posted - 03/20/2017:  02:31:42


We used to have a great little short track near where I grew up. It's long gone now. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/20/2017:  05:00:32


Merrittville Speedway was on the outskirts of my home town,,a 1/4 mile dirt oval. Lots of action every Saturday night, including a demo derby. It was one of a series of small ovals in southern Ontario and western New York. I can still hear the roar of the engines and the smell of exhausts.



Fred Hurst was a local driver and a neighbour of my sis and BiL.

Wichita needs a short track!!!crying

OM45GE - Posted - 03/20/2017:  11:21:42


Here are a couple of photos. The town's offices are on the site now.

We do have a drag strip... but that's not the same

OM45GE - Posted - 03/21/2017:  03:21:29


Drag racing isn't my favorite Motorsport but it is fun to watch. LOUD!!!

DeanT - Posted - 03/21/2017:  06:40:07


those guys have some monster crashes!

OM45GE - Posted - 03/21/2017:  09:01:29


They're nuts.

DeanT - Posted - 03/21/2017:  16:23:17


I like the novelty jet cars

OM45GE - Posted - 03/22/2017:  02:53:37


I saw a peroxide rocket car once that was amazing. 

dmiller - Posted - 03/22/2017:  08:47:04


After my divorce in 1985, I dated a peroxide blonde gal briefly.  She was amazing too.  cool



 

DeanT - Posted - 03/22/2017:  11:16:28


I was married to one of those, she left me when I was in basic training. 

OM45GE - Posted - 03/22/2017:  17:45:00


I've always gone in for brunettes. I've been left by a few of them too.

DeanT - Posted - 03/22/2017:  18:02:40


I think I've been left by one of every color...

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/22/2017:  18:18:58


I never got near redheads...always figured they were hot headed

DeanT - Posted - 03/22/2017:  18:59:27


My college girlfriend was a Clairol redhead

OM45GE - Posted - 03/23/2017:  02:56:38


I had an interesting evening at the beach with a redhead and a brunette about 20 years ago. It still makes me smile. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/23/2017:  06:49:34


Was Tequila involved?

OM45GE - Posted - 03/23/2017:  06:58:26


Surprisingly, no. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/23/2017:  14:26:38


Then is must have been cherry vodka...

OM45GE - Posted - 03/23/2017:  18:47:26


We'd had a few beers with dinner at a Mexican restaurant. The rest was just hormones. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/24/2017:  02:24:41


The power of the taco

OM45GE - Posted - 03/24/2017:  02:56:13


That's so funny Dean, the redhead referred to a "red bearded taco" that night. Cracked me up. 

DeanT - Posted - 03/24/2017:  10:35:38


Oh my! Too much hot sauce...

OM45GE - Posted - 03/24/2017:  14:20:38


Like I said, it still makes me smile to think back about it some 20 years later.

DeanT - Posted - 03/24/2017:  14:25:45


I wish I could remember some of those days I had!

OM45GE - Posted - 03/24/2017:  14:27:20


I wasn't drinking much by then so my memory is pretty good.

DeanT - Posted - 03/25/2017:  05:26:00


I was drinking a lot when all the wild stuff happened. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 03/25/2017:  09:53:18


It was fun while it lasted

DeanT - Posted - 03/25/2017:  14:16:15


But I wouldn't do it again! 

OM45GE - Posted - 03/25/2017:  16:44:40


Would you do it again without the booze?
