Great photos.

You know nascrap isn't racing, it's a rolling TV commercial for "Tide."

The only way Nascar and racing belong in the same sentence is with "isn't" between the two words. Maybe if they left the sport alone in the 60s so it continued to be a test bed for new technologies, and you could still go out and buy a very similar car right off the dealer's lot, then I might be interested.
If Speed hadn't dropped the WRC races, then I might still have cable. Of course, they went and ruled out Subaru since they were doing too well.

Yes that's awesome racing, I love the pic coming down that steep dune. That's crazy ***** . In Canada we aren't getting daily reports like last year, OLN carried the VERSUS program last year but I can't find it this year.
