Doesn’t everyone go to Speed after the post-race interviews? The Top Ten describes me, except for the Prozac because There is usually a Truck or Busch race if there’s no Cup. It feeds the need.

Is there such a thing as watching too much Nascar? I know I could never get enough.

Too much NASCAR…???Never, you HAVE to go to SPEED channel, you need a slow withdrawl from the rush of the race. Especially after Sunday…Jr was too good!

These are the signs of a TRUE race fan.

here’s one:
When leaving for a trip you set two VCRs to tape the race (just in case one fails) and you avoid the tv, internet, newspaper, and family/friends until after watching it.
I’ve done it several times.
