Well, Speedweek is finally here, thank god:3gears:

I see we have a new member here who is on a race team. He might like this. Everyone has a favorite driver who watches Nascar, I wanted to share with you a poem of my favorite driver. I pray for a safe season this year for all of them.

The Heavenly 500

The Heavenly 500 was just getting started,

an all-star race for the racing departed.

Heroes of the track, with nerves of steel,

and sitting on the pole, a cat named Neil.

Adam Petty was there, with his beautiful smile,

Kenny Irwin was deyermined, to finish in style.

Lee Petty was glowing, with that grandfather pride,

with Davey and Clifford, both in a new ride.

Fireball Roberts floated in on a cloud,

while Tony Roper waved to the heavenly croud.

Morrosso and Nemecheck, then Tim Richmond appeared,

Kulwicki strapped in while the racing fans cheered.

The honorary starter, for this heavenly race,

Ralph Earnhardt was chosen with a tear on his face.

But the red flag flew: just before it begun,

and every eye was wide open looking at the sun.

A last minute entry was the cause of the delay,

while the fans were instructed to kneel down and pray.

The heavens turned back and the clouds turned dark.

The lightning was briliant, the thunder did bark.

Then out of the rumble, for all there to see,

the clouds they all formed a black number three.

The heavenly fans then erupted with pride,

and welcomed this star that recently died.

With a bolt of lightning Dale Earnhardt Sr arrived,

as he sttod before Jesus, his spirit revived.

Jesus hugged his precious child, then revealed his perfect plan.

" I brought you home to let you know I am your biggest fan!".

The intimidator was needed for this Heavenly Race,

leaving all your earthly fans with honor and grace.

Ralph Earnhardt stepped forward; embracing his son,

then whispered in Dale's ear, lets go have some fun.

As Ralph stood proud the green flag flew,

the cround went wild and the tensions grew.

And just like salvation the admission was free,

as every eye focused on the black number three.

When the checkered flag dropped, no dry eyes remained,

it was a photo finish, as Jesus explained.

He said "There are no loosers on this heavenly track,

this is a welcome home party for the man in black."

NASCAR ain't been the same for a long, long time!

Give me back North Wilkesboro, Rockingham, etc.....!

Sick and tired of all these cookie cutter tracks and hard tires. Put soft tires back on and let the drivers work on the set ups during the race like the good ole days.

Well said Dixie, Nascar has been catering a temporary fan base I call "fad-fans" People who were all into the sport because it became cool. These were famous and upper income people, willing and able to pay the absorbedant prices for race tickets and accommodations. What happened is it out grew the facilities were it was born and raised on. So greed took over and inverstors stepped in and built these mega tracks capible of holding over 160,000 people and now with the downturn in the economy no-one can afford or are willing to give any of there disposable income on racing.

What I'm trying to say is Nascar has alianated it's roots and are about to pay a big price for it. It's no differant why pro stick and ball sports don"t survive well down south, other than where there is a large influx of northeners to that region.

I'm with ya, give me back North Wilksboro, The Rock, 2nd Darlinton and so on.

BTW, Nascar will never be as it was when The Man (#3) was here. He had em by the balls, and they both Knew it. Once he was gone, they were never going to let anyone else do that ever again!!
