DAYTONA!!!!!!!!!! Ever hear the song Daytona by Chris Rea? It is awesome....I am not a racing fan, so I will continue working, but tax season is NEVER over...NOTHING IS OVER.... (to quote Rocky...hehehe)

I'm trying to finish my Sunday list so I can go home & watch in on a bigger TV - the 9" one I have at the office DOESN'T do justice to such a race!

Are we talking NASCAR???? or am I simply naive.... and you are making a euphamism for finishing tax season?

Belle (talk|edits) said:

Yes sir - NASCAR ! ! ! ! !

Altho, with further thought - I do like the analogy of tax season compared to a race. I'd compare it to a marathon (not that I've ever run a marathon, or ever will).

I thought you guys & gals were talking about pitchers and catchers reporting for Spring Training.

I live right here in the heart of NASCAR country, Charlotte NC. I have many clients involved in the biz, I have several clients along exit 36 (rte 77) in Mooresville, NC "called Racecity". machine shops, promo companies and the like. Yet, I have never been to a race. I have been here 14 years. The industry is in some serious trouble as the ad and sponsorship revenue dries up.

SP - just looked at your profile & was going to ask....HOW can you be in North Carolina and not know about NASCAR :-)

Yes, the industry is in trouble (name one that isn't right now, tho). I grew up close to Talladega, Alabama, while that track was being built. Almost got to drive my '68 GTO around the track before it opened - someone in charge of insurance and liability issues obviously stepped in after that idea proposed and nixed letting the public do such a crazy thing. Went to many races - always had a blast, but haven't been to a race in years.

For those who are interested, here's some interesting NASCAR history.http://www.legendsofnascar.com/Raymond_Parks.htm

Mr. Parks still owns a store on Northside Dr., though there were quite a few changes to the area in the late 90's. I used to see him quite often in the 1990's, always in tie and hat.

I am familiar with this because my father had his first office on what is now the Ga. Tech campus. That office was condemend in the early 1960's to make way for their aeronautical engineering building. My father moved his office in the sixties to, of all places, the corner of Hemphill and Northside Drive! This building is now occupied by Carlton McLendon Rare Woods. This whole area is located a stone's throw from the much larger Georgia Tech campus of today.

There was a lot of moonshine that floated the NASCAR we know now. The area of the beige building is the cradle of NASCAR. Sorry I couldn't get the google photo to show. It's the beige building at 1118-1130 Hemphill Ave.

And here we go again....YIPEE. (Trillium - probably should move this to chat?

Jamie MacMurray? Wow. Who picked him? Right. He was one of my faves like six years ago...but faded away. I was hoping that either Clint or the 29 would take it, or even Biff, since Tony was nowhere to be seen. The race that couldn't end.

Belle (talk|edits) said:

I doubt anyone picked him. That had to one of the longest, most drawn out races I've seen. I gave up & recorded the last two hours; so I least I was able to fast-forward thru the cautions at the end. By the time it ended, I didn't care who won.

LOL. No kidding. I enjoyed the naptime in the middle...that should be mandatory.

Belle (talk|edits) said:

February 15, 2010
One of the commentators (Darrell ?) said the fans are lobbying for half-time at all future races. I think he was kidding.
