Glad a friend of yours got it but that race has lost everything after 1995 for me.

everyone qualified LOL they cant even fill the field!!! tony george is goint to have to fund 4 cars himself by next weekend or atleast give incentives and push deals through what a joke... hell give me 5 days in a car w/ a good engineer i i could get in the show... oval racing is 10% skill 20% balls 20% driver feedback to the team and 50% the engineer coming up w/ the right setup.. example last year buddy rice fired from redbull cheever racing this year team rahal and gets the pole at homestead and indy
oval racing itself is a joke especially nascar! if you truely understand the ins and outs politics rule changes "templates" hero promotion etc it like WWF... last year at the 500 ward was going to bump the last person out of the field in the last minutes of bump day but because the 33rd qualifiers last name was foyt he was incouraged not to attempt notice al "over the hill" unser running w/o a sponser? tony george paying to have the last name in the field! every one complains cause they dont recognize the name of the new cart drivers from europe well the just came over and went faster then our heros.. nascar is entertainment not racing..if it were they would have a bunch of 25 yearolds getting the jobs of guys w/ name recognition mark martin rusty wallace etc half the guys out there made long careers w/o winning ****
