Jarret, here too. Was a big Harry Gant fan till he retired, then started pulling for 88. Looks like we'll have to find someone new soon though, I don't Dale will keep racing too much longer.

People can say what they want about Stock Car racing (left hand turns all day) not being a sport and the drivers are not atheletes. But those guys, as well as their pit crews have to be in tremendous shape (not including Jimmy Spencer) and have a 12 month fitness plan they go by through out the year. There is alot more physically and mentally to it than most folks think.

In high school an open wheel racer came and talked to the school about career, doing what you love, and religon(it was a private school). One of the points that was made was people always thought it was non-physically demanding however, the relation that was made was sitting there holding 10lb dumbbells and turning them for 3+ hours. It actually is probably one of the most physically demanding sports ever in my opinion.

Think about it football you have an offense and a defense only one is running(unless you are the Colts and your defense is so horrid you have to be on the field 13 minutes a quarter) plus there is a 25 second break in between plays. So you get to sit and rest however, in a car race the only break you get is maybe a 16 second pit stop every 30-45 minutes or a yellow fla(6 laps) but you are still going 60 and have to focus. Past that you are going 160-200 mph, focusing on the guy in front of you, beside you, behind you, have a spotter talking to you, and communicating with your crew chief. Oh yeah in football a linebackers hits you he may feel like a wall but in a race that is a wall you just hit.
WOW! Fantastic explanation! Thanks J
