Diamond in the Desert


Las Vegas Motor Speedway has been called the "Diamond in the Desert." So far everything I've heard and read about the new track design suggests a faster and more dangerous set up. It's likely to have many cautions. I only hope that if there are any bad hits like the one David Reutimann took at California Speedway that the network has the decency to go to a commercial.
I'm not even guessing who'll win this one!!
A fire at Watkins Glen International yesterday destroyed The Glen Club but spared the track any damage. A track in my home state and I've driven past it many a time but never attended a race there. Happy to hear that no one was injured.

The Busch brothers are snakes, so one of them will win Vegas!

Nice foto!

Hopefully Greg Biffle will drive out to turn two and erase his name from the wall under the "HIT ME HERE!" sign!

Hmmm, I really don't know what will happen at Vegas. Just a matter of how much practice time the teams get on the track in lieu of their testing and that horrible crash of Biffle's.

It is a shame that NASCAR has to go to a smaller fuel cell because they know the tires are horrible. What does that say for Goodyear and NASCAR?

Good luck to all the drivers this race weekend.

Thanks for stopping over and posting.

Take care,
Tom
