    Personal Favorite moments

    Hey there buckeyes,

    Oh yeah.. I went to the Cup event at Kansas this year. I was sitting in the upper tier of turn four just about where the pit road entrance line is located when Carl pulled that balls out move on Jimmie..

    I gotta say it made a believer out of me that Carl is a championship type of driver! It was so awesome, the sound of impact echoed off the pits and through the stands.. It was a huge moment in NASCAR! Some people cheered and some of us groaned in unison.. It definitely brought us all to our feet!

    The ticket packages are really messed up in the "Land of Oz.." I've been to the truck races also where the shared event tickets are prevalent. I guess they had to come up with some way to sell tickets on IRL day, and what better way? Sell combo package tickets with the truck series.. Hell everybody knows the trucks will fill the stands. The little skateboards on steroids? Not so much.. Sitting through the IRL practice was enough for me to know I didn't want to sit through 3 hours of follow the leader by those guys and gals. They excellerate quick and are quite a bit faster, but hell it appears almost anyone can drive one. I mean dammit man! Even "One Problem", Carpantier, and Villinueve were dominant over there!! What does that say about the racing in that series? Must have something to do with ease of control.. IRL drivers rarely spin in the turns, however the IRL transplants are always sideways or shoving a fender into someone in NASCAR. I'd say the little cars must be easier to drive judging by the proformance of all the IRL greats who have tried thier hand in NASCAR!! (I bet that pisses some people off this morning!! LMAO!!!)
