I don't know what it is, but it just doesn't do it for me anymore.

Yesterday's race at Indy was pretty good. Lots of lead changes and a new guy got the win.
It's the loss of Dale Sr.


That did it for me.

Me too! For me, I guess Dale Sr. legitimized the sport. It just ain't the same without him! In retrospect, I can recall, when tuning into a race, asking, where's Dale? NASCAR, is not the same!

Takes a lot of skill to drive at those speeds'

But after a while it is like watching putt putt golf instaed of
PGA tournament.
Too much of the same thing.

Bring back the Cannonball.


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?
