Ok, so just curious...I'm a huge Nascar fan and wondered if any of you are too? If you are, who's your favorite drive?


Mark Martin

Also like, Dale Jr. and Jamie McMurray (NOT, I repeat NOT a Jeff Gordon fan!!)

Because of my love for Nascar, I just got a gift certificate from a friend to ride for 3 laps in a stock car at Pocono Speedway!! 120+miles an hour!! Should be a thrill!:woohoo: (http://www.weeklydavespeak.com/forums/misc.php?do=getsmilies&wysiwyg=1&forumid=68#)

No..ever heard of formula 1?
I was named after Ayrton Senna Da Silva..hell of a driver

Yes, of course I've heard of formula 1. Just don't love it like Nascar! No offense but Nascar is a little more all American for me. Nothing against foreigners - I grew up outside this country...just prefer Nascar.

So is Ayrton your first name? Unusual but cool!

yes it is..i love the name but meeting new people is a pain in the ass..they butcher the pronunciation..aye-air-ton

I know this is an older thread but I had to chime in... Libby - that's cool you like NASCAR. Me too! I'm a huge Dale Jr fan. I HATE Gordon so at least we agree on that little aspect! HA HA

hahah!! Good for you! - They are at BMS today!

I know. Did you watch the race last night? Jr. finished in the Top 10 so, TECHNICALLY, he's still in the Race for the Chase. I think he moved up one position after last night.

Did you hear that Mark Martin said he'd race one more year if Roush needed him?

08-28-2005, 02:30 PM
Yeah !!! I'm totally psyched. I like Jamie McMurray and am thrilled he'll be driving the 6 in '07 so if Mark will drive one more year it would be awesome!!

And no :( I missed most the race yesterday - busy getting ready for school and spending time time with my guy!!

Thats it blame me for missing the race LOL

im a Dale Jr fan.. not a big fan of nascar racing or anything like that.. But when I was younger i always liked Richard Petty #43 when i used to buy the racing games I would always be him..

I'm of the opinion that the only thinking sporting in the sport of NASCAR is that the drivers can hold their bladders for that great length of time! :somedevil

Bobby Labonte all the way!!! I also like Dale Jr. and despise Jeff Gordon!!!

09-07-2005, 04:25 AM
Yeah for all those who despise Jeff Gordon!!!!

And Damian - I think it takes a lot of stamina and strength to drive a standard with no power steering in and out of traffic at the speeds they do!! It's very sporting!!!

^^ I agree! There's a lot of muscle control involved with driving a stock car around a track at 180+ mph! And NOT bladder control! ha ha.... So....Dale Jr is out of the chase. :thumbsdow

10-09-2005, 02:25 PM
YEAH!!!!! Just had to celebrate!! Mark Martin just won the race!!!

I saw that yesterday...in between trying to watch like 4 football games at a time! ha ha Congrats to Martin! I was going for him since my Jr is out of the chase!
