If I had the time I'd watch them all. I always try to watch the cup races[listen to them on the radio when I can't] Have for over 20 yrs. I watch the trucks more often than the busch cars but when it comes to Bristol i watch them all ... and not because I live nearby. It is no wonder they figured out a way to put 160,000 seats aroung that little 1/2 mile!!

I did like the old NA$CAR better than the new. I especially dislike their new format of trying to get the races to end at 6pm on sundays - it means I often miss the end of the race because I go to church.

I like all of them but,

I watch the preraces

I watch the first 20 laps

I watch all the commercials

I watch all the good wrecks/car fires

I definitely watch the last 20 laps

and I always watch the after race comments/remarks/fights

Other than that, I have no favorite driver

I watched an ARCA race today and presently watching the Federated Auto Parts race (Busch Series)

Hi lexmarks567,

Is there more racing other than Nextel cup? Watching the cip races, you get to see at least a quarter of the Bush field anyway. (Bushwackers). The truck series is ok, but the rules are way different. Besides, I grew up watching the Winston Cup races, and Earnhardt Sr., D. W., Martin, Both Jarrett's, The King Richard Petty, Fireball Roberts, and way more than I can immidiately name. But, bottom line is, The cup is so evenly matched today, it comes down to driver skills, and pit stop times. Good racing.

SURE IS!!!!

It doesn't get much better than the saturday nite dirt tracks but I've gotten too old [maybe cheap,lazy] to go to the track every sat nite. Watching cup, I've got a good soft seat, easy access to refreshments and don't have to fight the traffic to get home.

I love to watch Busch and Nextel races. I am upset that Direct TV is calling themselves the Nextel network. I have to pay extra to watch the races that are on FOX or local channels. I get to watch them on FX. I "watch" the cup races on the Flash system on Nascar.com when I can't get them on TV. Did go to a 24 hour Rolex race when I lived near Daytona. What a weekend. Nothing quite like camping in the infield and seeing the tops of the cars on the high banked 3rd and 4th turn.

Yeah I like the nextel cup and the craftsman truck series. The bush race is to short and just does not interest me although I will Watch it sometimes.


BTW for those who don't know or are new to the sport

the bush series,the nextel cup and the craftsman truck series are all by NASCAR. Just on different days. The bush race is on saturdays, the nextel cup on sundays and the truck race on fridays the truck race is new they started that back in 95.

You're absolutely right, marksr. I had actually forgotten about the Saturday night local races. Here where I am, we haven't had a track in many years. It's now part of a housing project. Only thing that exists today is turn 3. Everything else is under the buildings. And I miss those days.

When NASCAR drivers are out on the public roads, do they freak out when they have to turn right ?

If you watch the news you have seen where cup drivers have gotten tickets from time to time - especially those brothers from Las Vegas
