    Racing Today

    I guess that I will watch the Formula 1 race from COTA later today. I may even watch some of the NASCAR race as last week they almost never had any cars left to finish the race.

    I can see you watching the F1 race, Nascar! we don't need no stinking Nascar.

    Got to agree with James on this one.

    The friend that was visiting last week is a big CRAPCAR fan so I had to watch the race with him. I would rather buy a Do It Yourself Vasectomy kit and cut my nuts.

    I have a neighbor who is a huge NASCAR fan and he likes Kyle Larsen as he used to race here and in Chico before moving on to the big time and even my neighbor is getting fed up with the continual rule changes, letting Jimmy Johnson's crew break the rules and no penalty, and numerous other things. Week before last they let Johnson's crew tighten lug nuts when the wheel was in the next pit but his week they enforced the rule and penalized a different driver a lap because his front splitter was just on the pit line.

    Max drove one hell of a race today.

    Not a Hambone fan, so I was not happy to see him win.

    Well I watched the Formula 1 race and also some of the boring and really not very good NASCAR exhibition of stupidity. Another mid race rule change to protect a certain driver has a lot of people mad. With any luck NASCAR will self destruct in the next few years.

    Speaking of Crapcar rule changes, I can't believer how Verstappen was screwed out of a podium finish. He did the same thing that everyone else did and he got a 5 second penalty. FIA is getting just as bad.

    It seems that the rule enforcement in several venues of racing is haphazard at best. They kicked Kennseth out of the race for having to many men over the wall on a pit stop but let JJ have the same number as they decided that taking a tear off from the windshield was servicing the driver and not working on the car. Three straight races they have changed or ignored a rule to keep JJ in their so called chase and some drivers and teams are starting to say something about it on TV.
