      Wrong thread? Unless you're implying that the SHR Fords will sandbag, which is a definite NO. Supposedly they've had a little bit of trouble adjusting their chassis but there's no point in sandbagging here. If a team is capable of winning they're going to show it, and they're going to try to win.

      Exactly. Honestly even if somebody gave me free tickets I wouldn't waste the time driving up there and back again.

      If you stay on site though, the party is pretty great for 3 days straight!

      You're not the first person who's said that to me, but if I'm camping at a track for the weekend somewhere in the Northeast then it will be at the Glen and I will be dining at Seneca Lodge.

      This is nothing new, but sometimes I watch these radio chatter compilations and I just love this stuff, especially Kurt. "Check the mutha****in' damage!".

      This is not safe for work or little kids.

      Unbelievable. Just gotta stand there and take in everything you're seeing.

      The night we went there, a buncha old locals had taken over the TV and were playing their home movies from the F1 races.

      That is exactly the kind of thing I was hoping you'd say.

      Sounds like you went on the wrong weekend hah.

      NASCAR weekend is hot garbage for any track you go to.

      With the downforce created by the flat-brimmed hat now installed, the cars should all dig pretty good early-on, but push mid-corner-on.

      Ditching the whole chase and adopting that format would be awesome. Double points at the crown jewel events would be cool and add to the importance of them even more. I feel like because a win at any track gets you in the title hunt anyway that the big weekends don't feel as special anymore.
