    The Salt Flats are as real as it gets.NASCAR has become WWE on wheels.I too wish Speed Channel would do something,but I guess they're too busy pushing Meguiars and Haggerty to mess with the real stuff.
     
  2. I just hope that never stops happening.
    So many people get so much out of this "sport".

    Bonneville is on my bucket list.

    Perfection. As much as the adrenaline builds in me while I watch this video there is this sense of "calmness" that comes over my like that guy could just as well have a cup of coffee while he is driving a freaking msisle on the land.
     
  5. And nobody notices he doesn't flip his eyeshield down until 1:07 into teh run? Last gesture from the starter is shield down, then the wave off down course. No ill will but just something I have noticed in the 64 times I have watched this clip ;)
     
  6. it still amazes me that such a large amount of mass can be propelled to such a speed on the ground. fantastic!

    That was awesome... so glad they didn't put a music bed on it to take away from the killer 'going fast' sounds.

    Very cool that they put all the different cameras on there.

    ESPN was there all week shooting. They planned on a ten minute intro to one of the last NASCAR races, then a 30 or 60 minute show later on. The week it was to be shown, Kyle Bucsh wrecked someone in a truck race and the TV people spent the time talking about that instead. If it was ever shown in my town, I didnt see it. There was a link to it on Landracing.com It was very nice, but like most salt addicts, I want more.
    When your bucket list runs low, shovel in more dreams.
