Nascar a dying Sport?
June 12, 2018
The sport is dying. Count the empty seats. Nobody cares about Nascar anymore. Just a bunch of hillbillies stuck in the 1950s doing laps is all it is. Just too boring. You have yourself a nice weekend. Lock him up. That is how Nascar was founded and they have done nothing to change and sooner or later Proctor and Gamble will walk away and the rest of the sponsors that need national attention. Half full stadiums and getting stuck up on obscure tv channels is not exactly a good investment. NASCAR has been working very hard for 20 years to get more minorities into the sport.The 2 biggest hurdles are the small # of minorities racing stock cars,which makes it very hard to find that 1 in 5000 who’s good enough to win,the other being that sponsors are reluctant to sponsor a black driver,and that’s not NASCAR’s fault.
It is these issues which will end Nascar. Even F1 has done a better job of diversity and that is Europe. It is time to catch up. F1 has a Black Champion and several Asian drivers and they are not having any problems finding advertisers or filling the stands up. Mind as well put up a hammock and see how this unfolds. The fan’s will not be a punching bag, hopefully things change but who knows. I’d rather watch my kid in a 4 wheeler.

He did not really have a problem with baguette the problem is with himself and his bike. Because they were more worried about the Supercross Championship they were not taking as much time to test for the outdoors as they wanted to. Once he gets his outdoor settings set to where he’s comfortable, if he can get the starts he will be the person to beat.
If bagget has the bike figured out that may be why he was running top 6, he wasn’t comfortable… Confidence In your raw speed and also in the bike is key, I think he has both of those things right now and he’s definitely fit. If he can get wins and stay on the podium nearly every round, he’ll be there in contention at the end I believe.
I’d love to see Webb with a podium. ET3 still seems capable of the fastest laps but Musquins talent will have him up front, regardless of the track. The wildcard is Baggett, if he gets dialed in he can be dominant. I’d really like to see Dean Wilson get some podiums this season too. Lotsa “ifs” there, should be fun. I love this sport.
Just the points leader in 250’s a few years back. They chose to run for east title and was never cleared to leave country.
That’s all that counts at the end of the series. Moto wins don’t mean squat unless u have won 24 of them… the point my comment made (that you obviously missed) is this is a different tomac than the guy who was there contending for the SX title.
Why Get Motor Bike Training?
February 24, 2018
Before anyone can lawfully ride around town on their brand new (or pre-owned, of course) motorbike or moped, they must complete something known as compulsory basic training, or more commonly referred to as CBT. It’s a motorbike training requirement for absolutely anyone who aims to ride a moped or motorcycle, and once you’ve completed it you must take the test for your proper license within two years. If you go the full two years without taking the test for your licence, you’ll have to re-take your CBT, and nobody wants that. It’s about as basic a motorbike training course as one could hope to endure, and will do a great job of educating you on the basics of operating your motorbike or moped safely.
Upon the completion of your compulsory basic training, you’ll get a certificate indicating you’ve completed the case, which is also known as a DL196. With this kind of permite, you can ride your motorbike or moped that’s up to as many as 125cc using L plates for that two years before you get your actual license. (These will be D plates if you’re in Wales.) The CBT course isn’t too incredibly rigorous. It will have you learning theory of driving, skills that just about any rider needs to know, and will teach you the basics of operating your bike. You might also have other learners along for the ride with you, as there can be a maximum of four students to an instructor at the practice site, while only two are allowed during on-road training.
As just indicated, the basic training course is divided between on-site instruction and on-road training, so you can get a good feel for the safe and proper operation of your motorbike in a relatively controlled setting before introducing the other variables that come with riding on the road. Together, the two courses are organised as five separate elements. Element A is the basic introduction to the course, which includes an eyesight test. Element B will introduce you to your actual motorbike, and familiarise you with the controls and instruments you’ll need to use. Element C involves things like breaking, shifting gears, and your standard manoeuvring, and how to use your indicators. Element D brings you into the classroom where you’ll go over the dangers of the road before Element E (the fifth element) brings you out on the road where you’ll encounter a variety of situations and hazards. You won’t have anything too extraordinary thrown your way, but a variety of everyday challenges will pop up. Compulsory basic training is a level of motorbike training that’s easy to go through, and when you’re done you’ll be well-informed and ready to earn your proper license in no time at all.
