10. A racetrack has never told me NO, tried to drag me to to a sappy movie or asked for jewelry

9. It beats the heck out of watching the grass grow/ice melt/paint dry

8. Them asphalt guys just don't know how to hike the LF wheel through the corners

7. Answering all the stupid questions that the pretty (inebriated) young ladies ask when they find out I work at a NASCAR-sanctioned dirt track. (Did Richard Petty win tonite?)

6. Watching an under financed driver (I won't say team, because they usually can't afford one!) fighting for the win.

5. Having a cop stop me outside a tavern at 3:30 AM....just to ask me who won!

4. Getting light headed while standing in the modified staging area on a warm muggy night.

3. A perfect slide job is more fun than a well executed squeeze play.

2. I don't have to worry what major crime my heroes will be accused of next.

1. Three wide for the lead with mud flying!

Well 31b, I'm glad you didn't combine #6 & 7 and come up with "watching Speedbump slip on the track while trying to line up cars"!

About 8 years ago I took a header on the BS of Farley that got a standing "O" from the crowd.....

1. Watching the vortex coming off a sprint's wing when the air is just right. 2. Spinning out on a caution trying to run in some oil while leading the feature. 3.Cleaning out the tear ducts after you pull up too close to someone in the staging lane. 4.The blues never sound so good after a bad night at theraces. 5. You can't tell if your wife is complaining on the ride home because of the ringing in your ears. 6. Racetrack steak (hotdogs) 7.There's no folks like racing folks. 8. Being best of freinds in the pits and feirce blood thirsy rivals on the track. 9. The feeling you get when you miraculously snaked thru the Big crash. 10.The feeling you get only a few times a year when your car is setup perfect and it's on rails and you can go in as hard as you want and it bites at full throttle without spinning coming off.

8. The drive home after a good night...unless its a 3 hour drive and I'm the only one left awake.
7. Watching the "underdog" make everyone else look like fools.

9.)Hauler ornaments
8.)Chicks who would like to become hauler ornaments
6.)Dirt boogers
5.)Standing beside a car and listening to it run, not with your ears but feeling it shake your insides.
3.)Being able to talk with the drivers instead of look at them through binoculars.
1.)Watching the last man that you would ever think would win, run all over everyone else, come from the back and wear their butts out.
