Nascar 2019

Post by brothers » Sun Feb 10, 2019 6:59 pm

One of my favorite drivers - Martin Truex Jr. - has been signed by Joe Gibbs Racing due to the fact that his former primary sponsor has discontinued his participation in Nascar. The first race event of the 2019 racing season takes place on February 17 at Daytona.

Sunday's Daytona 500 was quite a spectacle. Attendance was around 100,000. The super speedway races generate speeds in excess of 190 mph on a 2 1/2 mile track. That inevitably creates a high probability of human error, which results in massive wrecks. There were so many multi-car collisions that at the end there were only around 18 cars still on the track. The race went into overtime due to the high number of cautions that were called to deal with the wreckage. None of my favorites won, but there are about 35 more races scheduled. Looking forward to the next one. There were no injuries (this week). This is a dangerous sport and I certainly hope the safety record continues.

I suppose there aren't any electric cars in NASCAR yet, but they must be racing somewhere.

I imagine one day such a concept might be found in France or California. It's a sure thing that people will be racing their electric cars somewhere. It seems to be a candidate better suited for drag racing as opposed to a long distance oval raceway. On the other hand, maybe even some open-wheel competition. Regarding off-road electric vehicle use, we already know it's been tried successfully on the moon and on Mars.

Today's race is in Atlanta. My favorites for this 2019 season are Truex, Bowman, Newman, and Harvick.

Well, he didn't win yesterday, but Truex came in second. Next week at Las Vegas.

I like NASCAR because they know how to properly salute the Stars and Stripes. No kneeling, hats off, sing the words. =D>

Today's race is Martinsville VA. This year Toyota has frequently been in contention.

None of my preferred drivers are having any luck (defined as winning a race) so far this year. I'm going to keep watching! :oops:

It's been a while since my favorite driver Martin Truex, Jr. won a race but yesterday he won! His first for Joe Gibbs since he joined the team last year.
