    Man, I’m ultra proud to be Canadian (not just western), but the Americans can sure put in a patriotic show hahah.

    Fighter jets, the beast, Trump, military singing the anthem (really good too).

    I can hear the bald eagles. And Metallica crushing the speakers in the back ground!

    I liked the black guy playing and singing country songs wearing an Iron Maiden shirt. Not something you see everyday. Unless you follow nascar I guess.

    How much armour does the beast have to weigh 22,000 lbs haha.

    I fell for the same thing. Darius was wearing a Parliament(?) shirt.

    He use to be the singer for Hootie and the blowfish. Now he sings in snakeskin boots! Lol

    well, the floor pan of the beast is almost 6" thick AR steel, and the doors alone are like 12" thick. Have a close look if you ever see the president coming in or out of it on TV, and pay close attention to how he has to swing his legs over the door sills, or to how thick the doors actually are. It's pretty crazy.

    Oval racing in the rain would be so dumb. It would be like going to a metal show and the band plays an acoustic set. It's like yeah, that's kind of what it's supposed to be, but it's not what anybody wants.

    They do have them for road courses but 200mph in rain on a banked oval is quite a different thing.

    I'm not an engineer, (and I haven't watched the videos either, I'm just going off the titles) but that's two series that have a tremendous amount of aerodynamic grip that NASCAR doesn't have. Stock cars can barely hold onto the track when it's dry. Or maybe it has fuck all to do with that, I don't know. I don't like rain racing any time. It's always just so slow and stupid and who cares. I'm not watching any Daytona 500 where the cars are tiptoeing around at 100mph. Zero percent of the global population would rather see that than postpone it a day to run 200mph in the sunshine.

    You're either a hater or not, rage2 has already cast his vote.

    I’m not a hater. Rain tires on an oval on rain tires would genuinely be exciting imo. Sure it won’t be 200mph but it sure won’t be 100mph if you’ve got rain tires on. Let’s say 170-180mph laps on the limit would be phenomenal.

    To be fair I was a big indycar fan. They don’t run rain tires on ovals either and I’ve always criticized them for that.

    less grip is always a good thing for Nascar excitement. I still say the greatest moment of racing in that series was this:

    You're right that it probably wouldn't be 100mph, but I don't think it would be 170. I really don't think the grip would be there to hold that through the corners, and even worse through the tri-oval. They manage to crash on dry pavement at speeds slower than that.

    It would be a different dynamic, I'll give you that. They'd probably have to brake going into turns 1 and 3. But that's how they do it at Indianapolis, Michigan and California, and you'll never be as bored as you will be watching one of those races.
