Never Underestimate the Abject Stupidity of Nasal-ly Radio Talk Show Hosts

HilljacksThis afternoon on the way home from work I heard the single most idiotic racing-related poll question in the history of not only radio, but the entire sport. It was aimed at NASCAR fans and it was about the Brickyard 400.

The question:

‘Should NASCAR keep running at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway or build a new track on which to run in Indianapolis?’

General LeePerhaps there should be little surprise given the lowest common denominator crowd that is evidently their target. Some people actually answered yes. I am astounded. Chances are most never visited. Many who have still do not get it.

NASCAR Fans Headed for IndyThe Brickyard is the only place in Indy they should run. I know that many of the thought challenged individuals who answered yes are used to the cookie cutters NASCAR has installed throughout the country, and given the fact that NASCAR’s most legendary track has half the history and years of existence as Indy, why should anyone expect a different reaction.

Perhaps if I was not well into middle age I might understand that point of view. The first time I walked into IMS the Daytona track did not exist. Neither did the majority of others on which NASCAR runs.

To me, they either need to race at IMS and be grateful or leave town. Here’s hoping it does not rain and they bring tires that will last.

I will be trying to watch the Edmonton deal and Formula 1 as well.

Have an outstanding racing weekend!



  1. I’m sure they would be welcome at the Speedrome.

  2. It just goes to show you how challenged the NASCAR product is when tracks have to be built to suit the car rather than the car and driver mastering the course. Or perhaps could it be some of the fans that are challenged?

  3. I usually find your commentary trite and grossly lopsided, but for once I actually agree with every word you wrote. The world must be ending…
