I THOUGHT we had a NASCAR thread but I can't find it.

That said, best Fark headline I've read in a while concerns the Daytona 500:

"Hello jet engine on a truck. My name is Juan Pablo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die"
"Parasitic wasps laying eggs in other insects is a better love story than Twilight." - :bitzero:
"Anyhow, it was the best sentient food movie since Killer Tomatoes Eat France." - :flipper:
"lee marvin in drag is no way to spread the gospel, son." - TFJ
"It failed. My enemies have been purged." - Sidious
"It's not like there was ever a time I didn't think Rudy Giuliani was a smug gibbering imbecile." - random axe
"*drags taint* Oh cool, I didn't know you could do that." - mo.d

I actually saw this as I was flipping through the channels. It preempted House.

Nice fire  :thumbsup: I was kind of curious if it destroyed the track, but not curious enough to follow up on it.
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

Yeah, I have mixed feelings about that, although mostly it doesn't affect me one way or the other.  It's a milestone, but I'm not sure what it means beyond that, if much of anything.  Although obviously it means a lot to her.


NASCAR doesn't do much for me, but it's better than F1, where an incredible array of insanely specific rules leave us with deeply ugly cars that cost $5 million and up (sometimes way up) that are extremely fragile and can go up to 220 MPH.  For that kind of money and engineering effort, I expect road-legal Bugatti Veyrons that can fly.  And hover.

Flying off the track by accident does not count.
