Riding season here is still a few months away but a sign spring is coming is the Daytona 500 in a couple of weeks. Anyone else here follow the Cup series? Any predictions for winners, champion or maybe new rivalries?
I'm not a big fan but I watch when I can. I'm more of a sports car fan. Not all left turns. Do you ever get down to Watkins Glen for that race? I flag corners there. It is fun to have those cars thunder by when you're standing at the rail. My favorite driver is Boris Said. My favorite regular is JJ, #48.
NASCAR has some substantial financial issues to deal with: the general economy of course, the auto industry, corporations reeling in ad dollars, an audience demographic which has been especially hard hit, etc.
I've never been a fan, but realize how important it is to many on a national level.
Maybe they should start racing hybrids?
Let's see if the big megabucks crowd playing in the F1 game can make it work first. They are experimenting with "energy recovery systems" at the moment. I'm thinking reliability will be the problem this year for F1.
You're thinking right, i was reading somewhere that F1 decided to make the recovery system optional this year, mandatory next. I think one or two of the teams have one that works and are going to try to use it. And yes, the new #14, i just hope he's the same old "Smoke".
