  1. Logos associated with failure.

    A little different management....it may not have failed. In a way, it is still around today.

    It's already been a farce, like when Kyle Busch became champion* after only running 2/3 of the season.

    Or a guy who has missed 1/3 of the season and ends up as champion........

    I know there is a certain SiriusXM NASCAR radio host that asks all the time, "Do you really want a champion clinching with 2 or 3 races to go?" My answer would be..YES! When you have a season like Truex has had, HE DESERVES TO BE CHAMPION! This isn't a stick and ball sport where you can settle in on the field one on one in a playoff game. The whole playoff thing doesn't work with non-playoff teams on the field.

    Kinda violates the 4 team limit doesn't it?

    I said to my girlfriend sitting next to me, look, there is one slowing. I was surprised he banged the wall right in front of us. I don't know if he panicked trying to keep the car away from the traffic. Then it broke the control arms and Dixon hit him and Oh. My. God. There were people (women) crying because they thought Dixon was dead. I, myself, was shaking pretty bad.

  8. Crazy Coincidences

    The 2005 season opener for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks started with the Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee kicking off to Seahawks kick returner Josh Scobey.

    Headed out on my 13+ hour drive to Indianapolis. Weather is looking like I'll have to stay an extra day this year. My fifth Indianapolis 500.

    I love how you can race a handbuilt car 500 miles and fail a laser inspections. What a time to be alive.
  11. Where's the $3?

    The bigger mystery..... Where is the ORIGINAL Super Bowl V trophy? The Rosenbloom's owned the Colts then. Years later, there was a trade and the Rosenbloom's took over the Rams, and the Irsay's took over the Colts. The Colts bolted to Indianapolis. Did Rosenbloom take the trophy to LA? Did the Irsay's take it to Indy? I know the city of Baltimore ended up with a replacement, but it's not the original.
  12. General Mills Retro Cereal Boxes

    That reminds me of having breakfast at my great grandmothers house. I think companies should realize how important it is to keep their branding for nearly forever. Coca-Cola does this...and it works. I use to drink Pepsi, but it tasted different when they went to this new weird globe logo.
  13. I'm a racing fan. Don't really have a favorite driver.

    Just gotta get the people back that are gone to bring the younger kids. I am 36 and so much has changed since I watched as a little kid. - "Stock" bodies are gone. Which I could go on a whole other rant about which could get technical. -The variety of tracks is gone. How great would it be for a place like Las Vegas (or Kansas, or Chicago, or Kentucky, or Texas) to re-build into a 5/8 mile track with a stadium setup like Bristol. -The messing with the championship system for entertainment purposes and to be like other sports. -Classy television coverage. Darrell Waltrip and his buffoonery really hurts. Mike Joy is still good, but he can get sucked into the goofiness. Other than a couple Daytona 500's, you would have never known Dale Jarrett was the son of Ned Jarrett. Benny Parsons was goofy but lovable, and the same with Buddy Baker. Today there is a lot of treating the viewer like they have no knowledge. Which is fine to give little details, but not every week. Then there is the actual production of the race using too many tight shots and following the leader. -Race procedures. The Green White Checkered finish, while I understand everyone wants a green flag finish. Sometimes in sports, you just have to let the clock run out. Especially on plate tracks, I am sure car owners would love it didn't cost half a million bucks fighting for 20th place. The free pass. Not racing back to the caution is a good thing. Giving someone a free lap back is not. They should have to earn it. I am fine with the wave-around because there is a little penalty because you cannot pit. Racing shouldn't be easy. Which leads to double file restarts. Yes, I am probably the only one who doesn't like them. The lap cars should be on the inside and have a chance to earn their lap back. I am sure there is more that I forgot but you probably haven't read through it all anyways.

    And if you want to really make an impression, let the 12 and under in to Cup races. There is plenty of room.
