    Kyle seemed to be showing a lack of something last night. :dizzy: I see that Carl Edwards will be driving the fourth Joe Gibbs car, guess Elliot Sadler needs to either get used to being a permanent full time Nationwide Series driver or look elsewhere.

    Yes, but never was attendance anywhere near what it is for Sprint Cup Series races. Attendance for nearly all NASCAR events has been way down since the market crash of 2008.

    Looks like that one is the movie Memphis Belle. Beware, it seems the airport has laid down the rules about ground tours of her. From the Liberty Foundation website: Sept 5 Roanoke, VA Public Ground Tours Friday ONLY Sept 6-7 Roanoke, VA Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport (KROA) Landmark Aviation FBO 22 Waypoint Drive NW Roanoke, VA 24012 By order of the airport NO GROUND TOURS on 6-7th. Ground Tours are Friday ONLY B-17 Rides are Sat the 6th and Sun the 7th That is going to royally suck for those who have to work on Friday and might only have Saturday and Sunday to see her.

    That's not a car, that is a work of art, a masterpiece.

    Very interesting and worthwhile projects, Mick. Love the idea of '60s FS Jet Age too - would that be mainly military?

    If there is smoke inside the cockpit or if there is fire, get out and stay near the car. Drivers are not to walk across the track, just wait for the safety crew. This rule and the fire exception was demonstrated during Sunday's Pure Michigan 500.

    The P-51H was a design progression of the P-51 line. The H model, although based on the D model, was almost completely redesigned to be much lighter in weight and much faster than the D model. The P-51H was a successful redesign and entered production in 1945, but World War II ended before any H models entered combat. With the end of the war, the production contract was cut and only 555 were produced. The H model did not see combat in Korea, reason being the USAF had far more P-51D's still in service and plenty of spare parts for the D model and the H models were relegated to National Guard units.

    And we will have to settle for watching angry drivers bang their cars together and fight on pit lane or the garage area.

    I will have to agree with NASCAR on this one. Getting out of the car before a safety vehicle is positioned to protect the driver from other race cars is incredibly dangerous. I guess it means we will no longer see things like this. Tony Stewart at Bristol.

    That must be an awesome sight and not just something to see, but something to hear and feel. What an experience it must be.
