Re: OK fess up...
I am amazed at you guys that you would blow off something as complicated just because of the direction they travel? There's just as much physics and science in a nascar race as their are in our beloved motorcycle racing. It's funny to see the bias though when it comes to attitudes.
Maybe it's just the fact that I am a track photographer and get involved with teams on a more local level, but it's almost comical to see the reactions. Whether they turn left, right, or both, it's all about making the vehicle go as fast as possible while still maintaining control. Any event which has a national exposure and the media dollars involved is going to have an overproduced look. Hell look at the circus the SuperBowl has become..
For those of you who think it's so easy, turning left and all, why don't you put your money where your mouth is. Find a local nascar track, buy a used race car, and show the world how easy it is... Funny because we had a girl who was always on the local message board talking ****. Everyone convinced her that to actually be taken seriously anymore she had to get behind the wheel.. She finally bought a car and has been racing the last two years. Lets just say she discovered a new respect for the people she was putting down before, and she'll readily admit it. She hasn't won a main yet, but she will. It's not as easy as you chair jockeys make it out to be..
