"… there is no such thing as nothing."

“This is a contact sport.”

“This is a contact sport. We want to see drivers mixing it up.”

– NASCAR Chairman Brian France, referring to ignoring rules prohibiting “bump drafting,” the practice of one car pushing the car in front of it, around the track

“Boys, have at it and have a good time. That’s all I can say.”

–  Robin Pemberton, NASCAR Competition Director

Ever since NASCAR put restrictor plates on the cars, fans have been responding to “boring” 500-mile “races.”

A restrictor plate is a a metal plate placed atop the carburetor, which effectively decreases the size of the opening, limiting power, slowing acceleration and top speed.

That’s right… reinforce the idea that NASCAR is redneck, and good-for-nothing-but-wrecks.


Just remember – you’re paying to watch millionaires play.

Who’s the idiot now?
