You know what I think would be really entertaining?  If an organization would start a truly STOCK CAR racing series, using full-size Ford Tauruses, Chevrolet Impalas and Dodge Chargers.  Outfit them with the safety requirements and let them run.  Wonder what that would be like?  Fun to watch if nothing else and probably a good crowd draw!  Manufacturers respond accordingly - just like the "good ol days".

 

 

 

I agree totally and only then I would start watching the races again.

Yes, looks that way.  We'll know for certain when they run the next 1.5 mile track.

It is interesting to note who she is ahead of and how she compares to her team mates.

Better yet, the team and shop is based here out of Denver, Colorado.  I was just over there a couple weeks ago at the shop.  Very happy for our little home town team.  Only team west of the Mississippi.  And self sponsored.

Yes! I supported Ron Bouchard back in the '80s. He was from Fitchburg Ma. One car team owned by Jack Bebee (school bus guy). Ron won but one race - Talladega in '81. An un-sponsored team (Race Hill Farm on the flanks). Jack picked up Valvoline for a couple of years, but never had much success. Ron was very successful in the NASCAR Modified series in the Northeast. (Geoff Bodine was also part of this era - as was Randy Lajoie)
