This week's video will be pretty straightforward -- just some videos I shot during the race that let you get up close and personal.

Sit back, enjoy, and get ready for Atlanta this weekend.

    Your position on the apex of that one turn looked exceptionally risky. Any car up into that fence would have made a mess of things (you).

    I'm surprised they'd let people stand there - almost like a European road rally.

    Personally, I don't really get it. Any type of car could run that course, but the NASCAR appeal is strong in this country. Still, thank you for posting those videos; I wouldn't have seen any of it otherwise.

    Do the ovals need to worry?

      I should add that you'd see a car that was about to hit the wall coming and be able to move back. It seems dangerous but it's really not. NASCAR has officials and security everywhere to make sure you don't stand in an unsafe spot -- I was pretty impressed with how they run things.

    The "Let's Go Brandon" part was awesome

  • SCE to AUX A question nobody asks is how Tesla sells so many EVs without charge-at-home incentives.Here are some options for you:[list][*]Tesla drivers don't charge at home; they just squat at Superchargers.[/*][*]Tesla drivers are rich, so they just pay for a $2000 charger installation with the loose change in their pocket.[/*][*]Tesla drivers don't actually drive their cars much; they plug into 110V and only manage about 32 miles/day.[/*][/list]
  • SCE to AUX "Despite the EV segment having enjoyed steady growth over the past several years, sales volumes have remained flatter through 2023."Not so. How can EV sales be increasing and flatter at the same time? and H/K/G are all up for EV sales, as are several other brands.
  • ToolGuy Here is an interesting graphic, if you're into that sort of thing.
  • ToolGuy Nice website you got there (even the glitches have glitches)
  • Namesakeone Actually, per the IIHS ratings, "Acceptable" is second best, not second worst. The ratings are "Good," "Acceptable," "Marginal" and "Poor."
