NASCAR is dead to me.

I watched the Daytona 500 in hopes that the new "Car of Tomorrow" (which is now called the Car of Today, I think) would miraculously fix the fact that restrictor plate racing has become simply a game of roulette where all you must do is get your car in the top fifteen or so and then get lucky. But no, it seemed to make it worse.

So now I have a new favorite quote about NASCAR: "If I want to watch identically-shaped pretty colors go in circles all day I'll flush Skittles down my toilet." -P71, Grassroots Motorsports Forums. By the way, if you enjoy all things car racing, get a subscription to Grassroots Motorsports. Excellent magazine for race car enthusiasts.
