    Nascar does run road courses. Watkins Glen, Sonoma, the roval at Charlotte. I also enjoy Nascar at the road races. But racing on ovals is not easy. Xfinity runs Road America and Mid Ohio, both road courses.

    Nashville 1/4 mile oval had a paved X. Saw someone killed at that. Last season for such races there.

    Add the oil spraying bumper from Thunder Road for real excitement.

    Yes, Roger Penske bought the Indy Motor Speedway and the Indycar series a few months ago.

    Do they really do this? What kind of "racing" is this, exactly? HH

    I grew up drag racing. We don't do that in the rain, either.

    You should have come up to South Conduit Avenue, Brooklyn where we raced in the snow. HH

    Well with about 16 laps to go the "Big One" happened. Looked to me like Amirola bumped the number 2 car which actually was running second in the field. Maybe 20 cars involved and I'm betting at least 10 cars will be out. Wholey Mackeral!!!

    Well another big crash with around 2 laps to go. 77 lost control mid pack, at least 8 cars involved with at least 2 totaled. War of attrition continues. 18 cars left approx.

    The last one was not good. Hope Newman is alright. They're not showing much.

    Newman's crash looked really bad. Announcers were very subdued. Prayers for him and his family.

    Newman took a shot right in the drivers side window. That was bad. Hope he will be ok.

    Yeah, I didn't think too much of it until I realized the hit, upside down, was to the drivers side window area.
