Unfortunately, sometimes, plans change or emergencies arise. If you know of any NASCAR fans who have tickets for a race, but cannot attend, be sure to speak with them. They may have wanted to simply give their tickets away to someone that they know, but offer to buy the tickets instead.

Speaking of buying tickets from NASCAR fans who are ticket holders, but who are unable to attend the race in question, be sure to checkout your local newspapers. Those who wish to recoup a portion of their costs often turn to their newspaper classified section. This is where most will advertise any tickets that they have for sale. When using your newspaper classified section, as with online auction websites, you will want to proceed with caution. However, most individuals will ask for a fair amount for their tickets, if not an amount that is less than what they originally paid.

If that is the case with you, you may want to examine traditional public campgrounds. These are campgrounds that not only accept campers in motor homes, but those using tents as well. Most NASCAR races take place in warm weather, especially in the south. For that reason, the weather for the NASCAR race that you would like to attend may be perfect for a camping adventure. Generally speaking, camping is typically the most affordable overnight accommodation for NASCAR fans.As highlighted above, you have a number of overnight accommodation options when looking to attend a NASCAR race. As a recap, popular options include hotels, bed and breakfast inns, RV parks, and public campgrounds. Whichever option you choose, be sure to make your reservations well in advance, as they are usually more race fans looking for accommodations than there are rooms or camping sp[...]



Jimmie Johnson Nascar-Attending a Live NASCAR Race: What to Bring

Attending a Live NASCAR Race: What to Bring

Have you recently made arrangements to attend a live NASCAR race? If you have, is this your first time doing so? If it is, you may be unsure as to what you should bring to the track with you. While many items, including clothing and food, are readily available for sale at most NASCAR tracks, there are still a number of benefits to coming fully prepared.

Food, snacks, and drinks are just a few of the many items that you will want to bring with you to your next NASCAR race. As for full meals, you may want to consider grabbing a bite to eat before the race. In fact, you may even want to throw your own small tailgating party at the track before. As for drinks and snacks, you may want to bring a few items in with you to watch the race. Yes, these items can be purchased inside the track, but you may be put off by the costs of doing so. Most tracks allow a limited number of food, snacks, and drinks inside their gates.

Appropriate clothing is also important to bring with you, when attending a live NASCAR race. To ensure that you are properly prepared, in terms of clothing, you will want to check the weather forecast before you leave. If there is even a slight chance of rain, be sure to bring a raincoat or an umbrella with you. There is nothing worse than being stuck outdoors in bad weather. If the weather calls for a bright sunny day with warm temperatures, be sure to dress lightly, as well as wear and bring additional sunscreen with you.

Binoculars are another one of the many items that you may want to bring with you to your next NASCAR race. Binoculars are ideal for seeing as much of the race as possible. Even if you have good seats, like ones that are high up and give you a good view of the track, it may still be difficult for you to see all of the action, especially at the opposite end or side of the track. This is where binoculars can come in. Even those that are affordability priced will work.

Although completely optional, you may want to consider brining a NASCAR scanner or radio with you. Many are available for rent online. You may also be able to rent a NASCAR scanner right at the track. When you have the right NASCAR radio frequencies, you can listen to a NASCAR driver and members of their pit crew. This is the ultimate experience for many diehard NASCAR fans.

A camera is another item that you may want to bring with you on your next trip to attend a NASCAR race. If this is your first time attending a race, you will likely want to document the experience. Many times, this is the only way that you can do so. Many tracks and professional sporting events have strict bans that prohibit the use of camcorders. If possible, digital cameras should be used, as they often produce the best quality photographs.

Finally, it is important that you bring your excitement along with you. The best way to make sure that you have a fun time attending a NASCAR race is to enjoy yourself. You will want to remember to have fun. The good news is that this is relatively easy to do when you bring some of the previously mentioned items with you to the track.

Nascar Crashes

2009-08-31T23:21:19.531-04:00

Crashes are something which can happen at any NASCAR event; or for that matter, in any auto racing event. However, NASCAR is famous for crashes and at least one crash per race is not unheard of. Some tracks are particularly notorious for being the site of serious, even possibly fatal crashes, with such incidents occurring in nearly every event held at the venue. Some people find the high probability of serious crashes to be off-putting, while for others it is one of the biggest draws of NASCAR racing.As has always been the case in auto racing of any sort, there are a significant number of fans who are in it for the crashes. They thrill to the speed and the crashes and near-crashes; it's a drama which keeps them on the edge of their seats. However, crashes aren't actually a good thing for NASCAR's popularity over the long run - crashes can and have lead to the deaths of drivers and even fans.NASCAR has been working to implement safety protocols over the last ten to fifteen years which aim to make the sport safer and reduce the incidence of injuries and deaths. The organization was spurred to put these measures into place due to a tragedy at the Daytona 500; namely, the death of NASCAR's biggest star Dale Earnhardt. Following his untimely death, NASCAR began to add more padding to the walls of racetracks, stipulate certain safety features be added into the design of vehicles used in NASCAR racing and require drivers to use improved head and neck stabilization technologies.Of course, change rarely comes without some unintended consequences and in the case of the required redesign of racing vehicles; this has been a learning curve for drivers. Many of the drivers who compete in NASCAR events have spent their entire careers with one type of car and must now adapt to the new designs. Given the speeds at which NASCAR drivers must negotiate very crowded racetracks, the penalty for a wrong move can be extremely high.This is not to say that the added safety requirements put into place by NASCAR were not necessary; they were and are needed. However, there is still much work to be done to make the sport a safer one for drivers and spectators alike. Some drivers have opined that while improvements have been made, there are still many tragedies waiting to happen at many NASCAR racetracks and that the organization should take a proactive stance rather than waiting for another death before taking action.At one recent event, a car flipped and flew into the fence which separated the spectators from the track itself. Fortunately the car did not breach the fence and there were no fatalities, but flying debris did cause many minor injuries in the stands. It was an incredibly close call; one which came very close to being a catastrophe.Despite deaths, injuries and countless close calls, NASCAR racing is as popular as ever, with races regularly sold out - and many fans crowding to the front so as not to miss any crashes. NASCAR should act now to make their races as safe as humanly possible for both competitors and spectators; before more lives are lost, not after. Even though there are those NASCAR fans that live for the crashes, no one should have to die for the sake of an entertaining spectacle. One disaster could deal a blow to the sport which it could take a long time to recover from; if indeed it could come back from another serious tragedy.Article Source: http://www.a1-articledirectory.com Sports quotes will motivate you to be your best in any walk of life.

Nascar and Drug Use In The Sport

2009-08-20T10:04:36.904-04:00

Drugs In NASCAR RacingWhen examining other major sports, it seems that NASCAR has been spared the worst of the serious drug use controversies. The most notable driver to be suspended due to a failed drug test was 13-time race winner Tim Richmond in 1988.He became a part of Hendrick Motorsports and was well on the way to reaching superstar status, regularly appearing on the nascar schedule. In the aftermath, Richmond denied any drug use and it was later discovered that medications taken for cold symptoms were the cause of the positive testing.Regardless, NASCAR officials no longer wanted Richmond in the sport. He was losing weight due to an illness, but unbeknownst to NASCAR, Richmond was dying of AIDS. From NASCAR's perspective, the weight loss and subsequent health problems must be the result of drugs; rumors in the Cup garage supported this assumption.Richmond passed away in 1989 from AIDS-related complications.Since Tim Richmond's unceremonious removal from the sport two decades ago, very few drivers have faced the wrath of NASCAR because of illegal substances. Shane Hmiel, Kevin Grubb, Tyler Walker, and Aaron Fike have been suspended in recent years. Grubb and Hmiel received lifetime bans after failing drug screenings following reinstatements from a previous suspension due to drugs.Hmiel is the son of Steve Hmiel, a long-time mechanic who has worked for companies such as Roush Racing, Dale Earnhardt Inc., and Chip Ganassi Racing in recent years. Hmiel was a racer with serious talent and many described him as one of the more talented rookie drivers of the last decade, but his substance abuse issues were the undoing of his promising driving career.Grubb was another hot young racer back in the late 1990s. He enjoyed moderate success in the Busch, now Nationwide Series before failing a drug test in 2003. Grubb was reinstated in 2006, and suspended again in 2007. Grubb committed suicide in May 2009, drying of gunshot wound to the head.The driver Tyler Walker, suspended in 2006 for failing his drug test, is also friends with Spring Cup Series driver, Kasey Kahne. Tyler has yet to file for NASCAR reinstatement.For Aaron Fike, NASCAR suspension only came after a theme park arrest for heroin possession. While being interviewed by ESPN 'The Magazine,' he admitted to heroin use on the day of a race. Needless to say, the Fike interview was a shocking blow to NASCAR.Until this latest racing season, NASCAR officials had reserved drug testing for those drivers under suspicion for illicit drug abuse. Now, it is official policy for NASCAR to issue random screenings for both drivers and crewmembers during the course of the season using Aegis Science Corp. Labs, and overseen by Dr. David Black.Several crewmembers were recently suspended for testing positive for illegal drugs.Jeremy Mayfield, another big name in NASCAR has been put on indefinite suspension following a positive testing for drugs back on May 9 at Darlington Raceway.Mayfield's claim is that the positive result is due to a combination of Claritin-D, an allergy medication, and a legally prescribed medication. Nonetheless, NASCAR officials as well as Dr. Black have publically ruled against Mayfield in the matter.Mayfield is standing by his innocence, and has hired a lawyer, Bill Diehl. There appears to be a legal suit in NASCAR's very near future.Although NASCAR has not revealed the supposed substance, and Mayfield was totally ignorant of this illegal substance until recently. He and his lawyer received reports earlier in the week.Essentially, it comes down as Mayfield's word against theirs, and the case will probably be resolved outside of court. This latest event has many turning a critical eye tow[...]



How NASCAR Became a Major American "Sport"

2009-07-31T19:24:07.817-04:00

NASCAR, or the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, is known as the largest motorsports sanctioning body in the United States. The three series under the auspices of NASCAR include the Craftsman Truck Series, the Nationwide Series and the Sprint Cup. Some local races such as the Whelen Modified Tour and the All-American Series from Whelen are overseen by NASCAR. Overall, 1500 races at 100 tracks are considered NASCAR races.Originally, NASCAR was viewed as a regional sport coming from the Southeastern United States, but today it ranks second only to football in television rating in the U.S. In addition to broadcasts in the United States, races by NASCAR drivers are shown in 150 countries globally. Fans show support of the sport by purchasing licensed products in the amount of $3 billion annually. Fortune 500 companies recognize the power of NASCAR fans and sponsor the sports more than any other sponsorship role.The headquarters of NASCAR is at Daytona Beach, Florida. There are four local offices in North Carolina and regional offices in Arkansas, New York City and Los Angeles. Mexico City and Toronto Canada also have NASCAR offices. Additionally, most NASCAR teams consider North Carolina home.Originally, Daytona Beach was the location where world land speed records were set with eight consecutive records between 1927 and 1935. The Daytona Beach road course was the site of fifteen speed records before 1935. As the location for land speed records moved to Bonneville Salt Flats, Daytona Beach was already synonymous with fast cars both on the beach and on the coastal highway A1A.The years of Prohibition followed by the repeal in 1933 made use of fast cars with modified capacity driven at high speeds either to evade the police or later the revenuers. Much of this activity occurred near Wilkes County region of North Carolina, but also in other parts of the Southeastern United States. Races of the modified cars increased in numbers and popularity during those years.Three people were primary in the creation of the NASCAR governing body in 1948: William France, Sr., Erwin 'Cannonball' Baker, and Bob 'Barky' Barkhimer. William France wanted to protect the drivers from unscrupulous promoters who collected gate receipts and did not award winning to the drivers. The first intent was to race Roadsters, Modified, and Stock cars. Only the Modified division raced during the first year. The first season had 52 Modified dirt track races. By 1949, the Strictly Stock division made its debutOriginally, the cars raced had to be virtually factory models, but beginning in 1950 it was recognized that modifications for safety and performance were desirable and the Division was named 'Grand National’. By the mid 1960s, the races were run with race cars and a stock body.Only one of the original season race tracks is still on the circuit today-Martinsville Speedway. The Darlington Raceway and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway are both recognized world wide for their famous events in the world of NASCAR racing. Originally, the race tracks were oval and measured 0.5 to 1 miles per lap. Darlington was 1.366 miles and known as a Superspeedway following its construction in 1950. The track was wider and faster than other locales. In 1959 the Daytona International Speedway at 2.5 miles became the sport icon.During the early 1970's new sponsorship was found for the sport in the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company. The name of the series was changed from Grand National to the Winston Cup. The series today is known as the Sprint Cup. Prizes were increased significantly and a new points system was developed. The series dropped from 48 races during the seaso[...]

I have admired the racing abilities of Kurt Busch since he came up into Nascar Nextel
Cup Series. His Series Championship proves he is a great driver.

Not to be overlooked is his personality and what he has done and how he comes across to the public. Young, aggressive and driven besides trying to please sponsors, the media and fans can explain some of the antics.

In the following article you can see another side that des not make the news or headlines.
