    psssstttt...

    Of all the sports, Nascar really does have the longest season of them all & it isn’t like they get to go "home" for a few "races" like you do in say….baseball & basketball. The closest analogy I can come up with to compare that sport to is "the circus coming to town". Each week is a different town & EVERYTHING must be transported to that town for the show/race. Basically, the only thing each town provides is track…in very simple terms. I would really like to see a show doing a break down of how they get ready for each race across the board with all teams. Show the diversification between the big teams like Hendrick to small team like Finch. Last year after 1 of the races here, we got stuck in a very late night traffic jam on 635. People were actually getting out of their cars to see what was going on. The really cool thing was all the 18 wheelers stuck on the highway too that were leaving town from the race….I kid you not there had to be at least 200 trucks from what I could see…it is amazing what has to go into putting a race on. I’m sure you are correct in saying that there are tons of good stories to be told. As for that "mobile community"…basically that is what it is…The NASCAR Neighborhood. 10 months on the road & the other "people" in those buses are basically really who their neighbors are. The wives get to know each other & their kids grow up playing with one another. I’m really kind of surprised that Nascar does not do more short stories on this angle for the fans to see. As for the Final 4...so hard to pick when it comes down to this…they really are all great teams but I will go with Kentucky. Don’t forget to lock in your picks & have a good Friday Night :)
