After 500 miles they'll end up exactly where they started. Meh.

Not tonight the race's distance is 90 laps, 135 miles and is separated into four segments of 20 laps and a final 10 lap run to the finish. The winner ends up at the bank with $1,000,000.00.

With the safety features in the cars and on the drivers, not to mention the track modification after Dale's death, I can understand why fans like or at least enjoy crashes.

I don't know if anybody is awake and watching but the first segment is over. I think I can stay awake until the end, I've got the bourbon but I might be short on munchies.

Segment 2 is over and the good news is I found some popcorn I forgot I bought the last time the grand kids were here so I made some. I gave some to the dogs so they're not too pissed at me for not taking them out yet.

Okay...so enlighten me. I love high speed....and driving a hot car but driving an oval for hours on end just doesn't do it for me. What is it that draws you in????

I don't know, I've been into cars all my life. Have you ever seen a picture of my 47 year old baby, I built her back in 1967.

She is a beauty!! That still doesn't help me understand what is so awesome about watching cars go round and round on the same track for hours on end. What is so exciting about that???

I could say it's a lot more exciting then watching a bunch of overpaid guys standing around scratching their butts waiting for another overpaid over weight guy to try and hit a ball past them but I won't. It's the technology and engineering in the cars they're racing that fascinates me. Many of these cars are capable of exceeding 200 MPH on the race track. Do you have any idea of what it takes for an engine to be able to hit 9,000 rpm lap after lap for 500 miles? Have you seen a car flip 3 times in the air then travel a 1/4 mile on it's roof at speeds over 140 MPH and the driver gets out and walks away? Maybe it's a guy thing, but I enjoy it. I also enjoy women but I can't explain them either.

OK, I got tied up responding to GiGi's post but they've finished the 4th segment and are into the dash to the finish and Jamie McMurray has just won the all star race.
