3 laps at Texas Motor Speedway
A long time ago, my WONDERFUL wife bought me a 10-lap package with Team
Texas, where you get to drive a real NASCAR racecar around the same track
the real NASCAR drivers race on.
I've had the video of it for awhile, but it's about 150 MB... I finally
figured out how to cut out a portion of the file and made a clip of just
the three laps that were the most representative of the experience:
This was quite possibly the most fun I've ever had with my clothes on......

Spin after instuctor grabs my wheel
This video is from the Yellow group. So I am not a rookie. This was the
first event at this track and everyone had an instructor to show us the
layout. This in the first 10 laps on this track and I just forgot what was
coming and turned in late. I am not saying that the instuctor "caused the
spin". My car was out of shape, because I turned in late at turn 5 (now
renamed turn 4)at eagle's Canyon Raceway. But Its not the first time that
I have lost grip for one reason or another and have recovered from
situations far worse. So I am saying that he made it worse. The
instructor just seems to have panicked and made an error. Instructors are

This is a "fantasy" event, where you can actually drive a retired former
NASCAR Nextel Cup race car.
A relative of mine participated, and I went along to document the day.

Largest Crash in NASCAR History
Thanks to Rustyfan for this great capture. In 1960 Daytona Superspeedway
hosted this sportsman race. 68 cars entered into the race, back then there
were a maximum of 68 cars in a superspeedway race. Coming out of turn four
37 cars get into a massive wreck where at least six cars get on their
roofs. Amazingly, evryone walked away from this.
By the way, I am really getting tired of people having arguments that lead
to name calling and slander. If I see a comment that put another member
down or uses any derogatory language, I will delete it and any replies to
it immediately. Also, if you do not like racing or think it is a sport,
that's fine, but at least give some logical thought into a comment that you
post. I will once again delete any comment along the line of "nascar sucks"
or "nascar is for dumb rednecks LOL!!1!1".
All I ask is for some civilized conversation, and not trash talking.
