Dale Earnhardt Sr. would never have been able to win all of those championships today. We used to be NASCAR fans but that changed once Dale was gone and they started putting in all of these new rules. The NASCAR Dads thing was really the last straw.

While on vacation in Florida, we toured Daytona and was able to take a tram ride on the track itself. Also got to ride down pit road and go into the garages. During the tram ride, we stopped at one of the banked turns and you really have no concept of how banked they are until you are at the bottom and it seems like you are next to a wall. They said that for a car to not slide down, it had to be going at least 90 mph.

We are still NHRA fans.

Here's another DQ story.  I don't like the sound of this, but others might.
