  3. I was glad to see Jr. win Daytona myself, I was a fan of his fathers since i saw my first race back in '87. Dale Sr. was 3 laps down at Wilksborough. I had no idea who he was or anything about NASCAR, but I watched as this guy make up his laps and win the race. I was a Earnhardt fan from then on. I have been to the DEI shop in Kannapolis which any Earnhardt fan should go see, Jr. lives directly accross the street in a rather modest ranch style house, but has an AWESOME garage behind it. I bet you could put 4 of his houses in his garage. So back to the original question, way to go Jr. and I hope he finds the same success his father had and continues the Earnhardt tradition.

    I think it was good for Jr to get a win there just because of the history his family has there. More so than that, I was happy to see Stewart do so well at Daytona.

    Welcome Carl. I haven't followed racing since I let my license lapse, but used to do a little zooming.

    Ysacres, I think that is an awesome shot. It was in the Daytona paper, also.

    Armedandsafe, thanks for the welcome. What did you race? I used to do a little amateur sports car racing back in the days of MGA’s and Healy 3000’s. Never had the money to really pursue it. Just had a lot of fun. :D

    I ran Sprites on the European circuit as backup driver for a little while, then roadraced a 58 Ford Custom 300 (somewhat souped up) in New Mexico back in the days when the State Police used to block the highway for us. Ran Hound and Hare a couple of times growing up in Nevada, with the jet jockeys who were headed for Korea. Got two rides on a circle track in Las Vegas in '52. Broke a tie rod on the same car on the same corner in the same lap each time. Never got another ride from them, for some reason. :D

    I used to love watching NASCAR races. Now, I really don't care that much for it. It has become to "trendy" for my tastes. i did watch the Daytona 500 and tried to watch the Hershey's 300, but Mother Nature can be such a bitch. :lol:


    Plus, I love the American Le Mans, www.americanlemans.com , racing events much better. With the use of the four types of cars, including the LMP900, LMP675, GT-S and GT class cars, it is what I consider the greatest auto racing sport in the world. A close second would be, WRC Rally, British GT, German Touring Car, JGTC, F1, IRL, Daytona Prototype, etc... Yep, I'm a true racing car fan!

    Sebring is just one month away! Woo-hoo!
