Yeah, the only thing is ... Gordon was 5 seconds slower than Montoya in a F1 car ... which is about 20 car lenghts ... Yeah, Jeff Gordon really can drive a F1 car ...

I thought it was absolutely hilarious that the Nascar drivers were complaining about having to juggle 5 radio channels, while F1 drivers make over 100 steering wheel inputs EVERY LAP, while doing a heckuvalot more than just turning left! Compare the steering wheel of an F1 car with that from a Nascar sometime.


F1 drivers Rule! Moonshiners drool!

Senna was a much better driver than Schumacher.


as for the comment about teams hiring Fellows and Said, etc and still beating them...you do realize that it's the lower tier teams hiring those guys, right? They don't have the cars on the same level as the big teams, yet those guys are still very competitive.

Fellows drove for dale earnhardt inc in most of his nascar road couse races... Not exactly a small team if you ask me! They had just as many sponser stickers on there cars as hendrick and roush cars did, not to mention the extra time, money, and effort they put in the cars when gettin fellows on contract! Yea he finished 2nd to JEFF GORDON in 99 at the glenn

I wont argue anymore, i sent you the proof between the times the same day they ran the same car, not 2 days later, 2 months later, but the same day! Read carefully, that was only 7 laps for gordon! Wonder what he couldve did the whole weekend eh? Hmmmmmmmm

If Gordon was that good, he would be driving F1, not NASCAR.
F1 is much more popular world-wide and he could be making much higher salary at F1 than NASCAR.

NASCAR (as well as Indy) is for drivers who can't succeed in F1.

My, oh, my. I thought my Original Post might draw some controversy, but nothing like this! Give me a break, guys. There are stock car fans (me) and there are open wheel fans (not me...and I track my GT around a road course, not the drag strip or ovals). Both are spectacular sports with great TV coverage. Like what you like, stop comparing 'mine is better than yours'...really? I love NASCAR because no where else can you see awesome in-depth coverage of 40+ stock cars, with 800+hp each, running three-wide at near-200mph, and hear that thunder. Like what you like.

You don't like it, you don't have to watch it. Stop complaining so much, and let others have their opinion. I don't write smack about open wheel (Indy & F1), why don't you do the same?

The drivers are a bunch of prima donna's for sure, but teams that do 3.5 - 4.5 second pits for tire changes... plus hardcore passing on left AND right corners, plus state of the art handling engineering with high revving small block V8's... that's top shelf viewing!

Hell the last time I watched a circle track pit stop, I went and grabbed a beer and when I came back they were still in the pit fussing with tires.


I got to see Long Beach in the late 70's and it sounded like a swarm of angry bees chasing through the city. IIRC, Monaco is this weekend. With that and the Brickyard, DVR's gonna be busy.
