2 in a row bishes!
Casey Kahne is gonna be rookie of the year. 3 races and 2 second place finishes?
Why yes, I am a Ferrari sackrider
its nascar. go fast, turn left...
show me some real racing, where they turn right, use DOHC engines, and have limited slip differentials.
and hardly go over 120mph, and never run in the U.S.
and NASCAR runs 2 road courses, with more coming each year
oo DOHC engines.. wow.. thats really cool must make them faster..
ok the only road course's they've done are sears point and watkins glen....FOR THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS. so when are more coming?
You've never heard of a NASCAR Road Track?
Who gives a fuck whether an engine is DOHC/SOHC/Pushrod?? The motors we built at Roush continuously put out 700+hp depending on what track we were setting it up for...
There is so much more reasearch, testing, and innovation that goes into NASCAR's than you realize...
the only thing that makes them faster is areodynamics and gearing.
but DOHC engines flow more volume of air then pushrods, equalling more HP.
oh yeah, I left out fuel injection. nascar needs to quit using carbs.
Kensith is awesome, but Harvick is mah man
depends on if the tracks can handle the attendence.
face it, people like seeing ~180mph races around a speedway more than watching some 4-cyl imports cruise around a road course.
a road course with an open diff is like an elephant in a china store
The reason they have the restrictions are to keep the cars below 200mph and also to make them more competitive.
We make plenty of RELIABLE power on carbs and pushrods...and before you break into the Redneck Hillbilly stereotyping, we also built Aurora Motors for IRL teams...
i prefer formula 1 at 220mph on road courses.
or if i want to see road cars race, I'll watch SCCA sport touring and world challenge GT on speedchannel.
If i want to watch pre-fab cars race, I'd watch nascar, but I don't care about prefab, pushrod, carb'ed, open diff cars going around in a circle for 3 hours.
carbs = more hp.. which in turn is more moving power to pass at 180mph
I'd like to point out that Pursuit is a benchracer that has never raced on a circle track, with the exception of a ford escort and some other econo cars. He has no racing expierence at all. This is confirmed in the P&M forum.
great, so you built IRL engines for indy cars that still go in a circle.
fuel injection is more efficient, better fuel economy, and provides more HP then carbs. and I can argue that fuel injection is more tunable as well, if you have a computer.
ive never seen an SCCA race packed like the daytona 500..
so i must be with those people at the 500 that are wrong for likeing nascar..
or better yet, I like when you have to let your teammate win.. that's great racing there!
watching amateurs race half-ass isn't interesting to most.
You're talking trash about prefab cars, yet you say you watch F1 and GT
F1 cars are built seperately by each team. And SCCA sport touring viewership is growing at an increasing rate. many people like to see the same cars they see on the street racing at the track. thats why you have the BMW and Porsche owner clubs that rent race tracks.
The "Chevy" engines in the IRL are built by Ford Cosworth in England
BTW, the IRL Sucks
I am an openwheel fan F1/Champcars, but I realize that Nascar is what it is. I don't hate it for being successful. I like it for what it is. I love their races at the Glen and Sears Pt. I also love the restrictor plate races. It puts on a very good show. It is very TV friendly which makes it easy for the 1st time fan to pick it up and follow it. It's only going to get bigger. Toyota is coming! Toyota is coming!
BTW, Casey Kahne is the next Jeff Gordon. He had an openwheel background. Ford tried to get him into the CART system, but it didn't pan out. Oh well... He'll be making millions and fucking big titted blondes.
