Bristol creates junk. If you’re not a NASCAR fan, Bristol Motor Speedway is a short, narrow track with one racing groove. So there is a lot of bumping and shoving. Fun to watch.
But this year’s winner says his car was junk before he started.
Under the guise of added safety, NASCAR has designed a car that all drivers must use. Called the Car of Tomorrow (did anyone think about the day it would be in use? Is it now the Car of Today?) the changes aren’t all that dramatic to the fan. But a few drivers hate them.
Kyle Busch won the race, but called his car a “milk crate.”
Let’s go back to racing on the sands of Daytona Beach where the drivers raced the family sedan. Crash and you walk home.
Now those were real men!
