    Earnhardt also ran the #8 car as well as other numbers, I guess you guy's want all those retired too. While Dale's passing was unfortunate, the number 3 belongs to R.C.R and did before Dale drove for the organization.

    That's why so many people dislike Smoke, he is everything they want their effeminate metro sexual wanta be's to be, but they know deep down inside it will never be so.

    14 is the new 3. One of the few drivers left with any stones
    Gonna have to disagree with that statement.

    This is what makes for viewers nirvana when you see/hear/read of drivers, racers of both 2&4 wheel with the desire & determination to rehab and join the forces for more.

    I was just trying to make a point that there are other drivers with stones. Johnson, Busch, Edwards, Biffle, Harvick...

    Stewart has grown up. It was pain full watching it happen. But he is the real deal.

    I've gone a ton of times, but have had my own 2 seats since the early '90's. Sometimes I don't feel like going so I'll sell the tickets on StubHub. God-willing I'll keep buying them every year though.

    It might take a new car to make that happen. How long until we see a Gen 7 car? I am of the opinion that the racing needs to be taken out of the engineers hands and put back on the track.

    Remember when the bump pass was more prevalent than the bump draft?

    Someone else has a new paint job. Maybe they should have painted it to match the wall of the track. (LOL)

    That's because they all are busy carrying Jimmie's water. Soon Smoke will be as well.

    That would be great. Just what is needed. Take away their power steering while their at it, that'll thin out all the Sally's.

    So much for NASCAR measures to slow them down. Expect a rules revision before Daytona.

    Whats the deal with the bright light pointed on the track under the rear bumper during practice? Some kind of laser to measure the ride height of the spoiler?

    NASCAR allows the teams to equip the cars with all kinds of instruments and measuring devices, during testing sessions only. The light is part of that.
    Each team, and each automotive manufacturer has large teams of engineers analyzing the telemetry at the track. Of course NASCAR can poach that information as well.

    YEAh baby!!! i'm 4 pages late! so in short,

    - The #3: I love Dale Sr. and all that he has done before and after death. To me, I think it's about time it came back. I've mourned long enough for it to not affect me. For better or worse(?) like #10 it will might help with rating i guess.. to me Personally the #3 belongs to one man and one man alone. A man who established himself to be known as one of the greatest! So much so it took Boston 8.5 decades to defeat a mythical curse known as "Curse of the Bambino" after trading him and THAT is the one, the only, George "Babe" Ruth... but that's for the baseball threads! ( GO NYY! )
    - We'll just have to sit back and wait to see what Tony can do with his recovered leg
    - Danica, still is all show and no go
    - Eff YOU Letarte for screwing over Dale Jr.!!!! you piece of Sh!t !!
    - & Thegweed, You better post post pictures!!!!

    now who's ready for some MTBR's NASCAR Fantasy 2014!!!!

    There are dale sr fans and not so RCR choosing to make use of it again is his call.
    -danica has proven herself just fine
    -letarte seeking something diff for his life is his decision so respect it instead of blaming. dale jr didn't get screwed, doesn't matter anyway Jr doesn't have what it takes but that's nothing new.

    What gossip? Are there changes? FWIW, I think the chase should be scrapped and the points ladder be restructured. Wins should be heavily weighted. No points for leading one lap, weight the points for whomever leads the most laps. Points for fastest lap during the race. DNF's need to have far less points, no points just for starting.

    I like it, makes winning races important again. Still leaves the door open for multi-car teams to manipulate things though.

    Sounds cool to me. In F1 the qualifying is often more fun to watch than the race. I doubt it will be like that with Nascar since qualifying position really doesn't matter for most tracks but it has to be more interesting than the snore fest that qualifying is now. Doesn't seem like most fans agree going by the comments I read.

    The new Chase format isn't perfect but it looks better than it did. All in all, I wish they'd just scrap it. I'd also like to see the points restructured, like get rid of a point for leading a lap if it is under a caution flag, only award it for a green flag lap. Weighting points towards wins would be a good direction also, DNF's should be more punitive, as should running at the back.

    It should be simple. The driver with the most wins at the end of the season is the champion. If a tie, a race off for 50 laps.

    If they did that they could shorten the season by half.

    So, now teams that get a win early in the season can run at the back for the remainder of the first half. They secured their spot, no use in tearing up equipment. Sponsors just want the car to get television time, doesn't really matter if they run up front or in the back. Teams can still dump a race to ensure wins for win less team mates, MWR got sanctioned for it last season but apparently its okay this season. A win less driver could still win a championship on points, so that throws out the theory of making it about wins. When it gets to the elimination races, what is NASCAR going to do when a back running team mate wrecks someone that is in contention? I have come to the conclusion that NASCAR would rather the fans stay home, it would cut down on the overhead that negatively affects their bottom line.

    Thats what I was wondering about. How many different winners does NASCAR have every year? Usually around 10? So get your win, then sit in back and cruise. NASCAR could potentially have 26 different winners in the regular season, but thats unlikely. There will still be some points racing by those that have a win. They can't avoid that.
    And the Championship format has some loop holes in it. Drivers don't really have to win every week. Shoot, they don't even have to win at all. They could have a team mate take out their closest competitor, then just cruise the rest of the race.

    I don't know, I kind of like the idea. It means a lot of the smaller teams will try crazy things to pull off a win. I really doubt you will see the big teams sand bagging after they get a win anyway, sponsors won't like that. I also don't really have a problem with team strategy as long as you aren't wrecking somebody or yourself to help out those teammates.

    It should make for a lot more beating & banging, bent sheet metal and pissed off drivers.
