Episode #1617- Throwbacks and Taming The Bojangles Southern 500 from a NASCAR Fan’s View

This episode is the latest from NascarFansView.com and JustAFansView.com and is a production of PodCastNorm dot Com with host Rusty Norman. It gives Rusty’s opinion of the race this weekend at The Darlington Raceway in Darlington South Carolina on Sunday evening September 4, 2016. The track at Darlington is legendary and has been around the NASCAR circuit since 1950. Because it is a fast and abrasive track along with being egg shaped it is a particular challenge for the drivers. It does make for interesting and intense racing and quite often the cars bounce off the wall gaining what is refered to as “the Darlington Stripe.” Like any other NASCAR Cup race, there are a lot of drivers to choose from to pick as a winner. This particular one is another special one because it is Tony Stewart’s last one, he is retiring at the end of this year. Jeff Gordon will be sitting in the driver’s seat for the recovering Dale Earnhardt Jr. once again as Dale has decided to take the rest of the year off to fully recover from his concussion symptoms and come back strong and ready for next season. As is always the case, consistent lap times, getting in and out of the pits with no problems or penalties and a strategy that maintains good track position throughout the day will once again result in one of the forty drivers sitting in Victory Lane. Darlington always seems to offer some great racing right down to the Checkered Flag if for no other reason than anything can happen at any time. It could be decided by being a fuel mileage and tire conservation race. As a general rule, it is a race where there is always the chance of a Big surprise along with a lot of drama right down to the drop of the checkered flag. These article/podcasts are usually once weekly podcasts and sometimes twice when events warrant it during the NASCAR season (which generally runs from February through the middle of November.)

imageRusty is a former hometown Stock Car driver and owner and his passion and love for the sport is evident as he shares his take and opinion of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series as the Season progresses from the season beginning at Daytona in February and ending with the Championship at Homestead, FL in November.
