DDF DO: NASCAR Edition

Anyone here been to a NASCAR race?

Was thinking of going to the one on August 2 at Pocono Raceway, only 2 hours away. Anyone interested?

U wanna bake in the sun, next to a blacktop track, smelling gasoline and car exhaust fumes, watching cars go in circles?! U can't even eat any of the food there...
In what warped way is that fun?

Just by the way Pocono is one of the most (arguably the most) boring races on the circuit.

You guys plan on going for the stands or the infield?

it seems to be the closest one to NY though. besides, how can one be more boring than another? it's all cars going around a track.

we didn't plan that far yet.

I can make anything you consider fun sound just as bad
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

True, but Dover is not much farther. (for some reason it seems like everyone always considers Pocono, but not Dover for the "close to NYC" track.) I think things may have changed in recent years with repaving the track and/or the new car, but Dover was considered one of the most exciting races. (especially the night race)

besides, how can one be more boring than another? it's all cars going around a track.
lol.
It all depends on the layout of the track.
Some are faster, some are slower. Some have lots of passing, some almost none. Some are usually "fuel mileage" races i.e. it's all about who does the best job conserving fuel and timing his stops right.

oh and p.s. saying "it's just cars going around in circles" is like saying "basketball is just guys running back and forth throwing a ball in a hoop." or "football is just guys running back and forth carrying a ball from one end of a field to the other" etc.

If you really want the whole NASCAR experience you gotta go camp out in the infield from the night before. (well, earlier if you don't keep shabbos...)

So it seems you're the NASCAR expert, i think you should work on the planning.

It is the same as basketball and football. Just show up for the last few minutes. That is all that matters.  Green-White-Checker Finish ;)
