So damn dark I can't see a thing.
Come on Will. Post some clips with a little more light.
If only I had a camera, I'd post some of me doing 128.

It doesn't seem that long ago, they were doing over 210 at Talladega...but safety rules prevailed. Lost too many good cars and drivers.

Yup. They raised the spoilers for tomorrow, but opened up the restrictor plates to make up for it. I think they'll be closing the plates a bit for next season again.

They keep finding new ways to squeak hp out of those engines, restrictor plates or not. There'* even some talk about going to a big bore V-6.
