09. You use the word, "Pit stop" in your daily conversation.
08. Your family car has flames painted down both sides.
07. You've ever sat in a car on blocks and made engine noises.
06. You've spent more time on top of a Winnebago than inside of one.
05. The word "Bank" makes you think of the third turn at Daytona.
04. You can change oil faster than you can a diaper.
03. You think the best way to advertise is on the hood of a car.
02. You couldn't get in at Talledega because you didn't have a cooler.
01. You think the last four words of THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, is

Well guys I like Nascar. Its the largest spectator sport in the world for a reason. If you take the time and watch a few, get to know the drivers names and numbers, maybe enter a pool for a season and follow it, you might think differently. I used to feel the same until I entered a p[ool for sh.ts and giggles. The next thing I new I was hooked. Now if all you guys are friends ( which seems to be the case ) than it probably won't take. But if you have one or two people to talk to about the last race, there might be a chance .
You know for a bunch of guys that run big blocks with through hull exhaust I'd think you would appreciate the power and speed these guys are playing with. But if its not for you its not for you. Like porn.....if you don't like it ......don't buy it! .........but don't walk around and bitch about it becuase theres nothing you can do about it:laugher:
CJ, We were just poking a little fun !
I'm one of the biggest fans of all racing, wether its Nascar, Cart, Irl, Nhra, etc, even that hi-tech F1 nonsense !
Many years ago I raced Nhra, Ihra, Ahra, Imca, and AMA events, and probably some that I have forgotten by now. Racing has been in my blood since I was a kid. I've even got family and friends that raced with "gilla" many moons ago. As far as drivers names and #'s, I know most in all the series and have met and even raced against a few. I have even sat and drank beers with Don Garlits while he was in his boxers, but thats another story. I could get into whats good and bad with each series, but this isn't quite the place.
I knew my comment would get this thread going, but figured it would be followed up by more humor. I'm sorry if I offended ya, but lets get back to the boating fun ! Besides we were both laughing at the end of the posts! :laugher:
CJ, if you ever want to talk racing, just send me a pm !
I'm poking fun too. Dover is only 40 miles from us. Karen's brother is a HUGE Nascar fan. He even bought a trailer just to spend weekends there.
I still remember us driving home last year listening to the Daytona 500 and then running up the steps to my place to watch the end of the race - only to see Dale hit the wall.....what a bummer that was....
No big story. It was at the Indy Nationals in 1977 or 78 and the motor had broken a fuel pump shaft and we didn't have a spare. Now,we're just a bunch of nobody's from Iowa and Garlits came walking by and overheard what we needed. He says to come over to his hauler, that he has spares. So towards evening, about 5 of us head over. (2 of the 5 are women) He invites us in, finds the part, and offers us drinks. We sit and drink Buds, but I believe Don had a coke. Well, its hotter than hell, Don stills had his drivers suit half on, doesn't say a word and pulls it off, while standing in the doorway. (he actually had on briefs and his t-shirt) He sits back down and cracks a few jokes and after 20 minutes or so, we head out.
Then the gals are giggling all the way back about Garlits sitting in his shorts.
So, no big story, except maybe for the women having something to talk about !
