I made it to about lap 110 of the Daytona 500 and promptly lost interest.
Back in the 80's and early 90's....I used to watch just about every race. Back then it wasn't uncommon for drivers to beat the shit out of each other after the race....I think they need to bring back a little bit of that-it's all to "corporate" for my taste.
Most of the drivers are too worried about pissing off their sponsors to say or do anything that is too far out of line. The sport needs someone to ram the pace car like Earnhardt used to do on occasion.
Maybe the drivers can say a few swear words once and awhile too.....it's just to damn boring to watch for 4 hours.
Hooking up a new Sony Bravia flat screen for a client today.....nice TV.
