if the "altercation" had been between 2 male spotters or lap time keepers or pitcrew members this would never be a story. but it was 2 women who do something that happens amongst teams all the time - argue.

perhaps danica patrick and erin crocker should just observe the race from their designated area rather than getting involved.( sarcasm) after all, theyre not members of the "pit crew"

I'm not sure what the whole argument was about, but there is no way NASCAR will kick people out of the pits. They went as far as they could when they downgraded the hot passes a few years ago to keep spectators from getting run over during the race, but they will always let fans in the pit/gagarge area up until the race starts, and they will always let family and friends in the pits...it adds to the whole "Human interest" aspect of the sport.

I would never use the term "always" because, quite frankly, no one can say with 100% certainty if NASCAR will "always" let fans in the pits. My guess is that they won't "always" allow it. It's just a matter of time.

Just a nice discussion and Mr. Know-It-All thinking the teams rule the sport and not NASCAR. But then, I know how bitter he is about my being ahead of him in the SF NASCAR Fantasy League. It just sticks in his craw, and I know that.

me??? just cause its clearly evident that im right, is no reason to go calling names, now.

very poor attempt at psychoanalyzation. ill just consider this thread dead. cause of death? the inevitable deflective manuver of making it personal, when one is shown to be wrong.

i eagerly await the "kick the france family out of nascar" thread.

I think they will always allow people into the pits becuse it's part of the mystique of the sport, as well as consistent with NASCAR trying to be the most fan friendly sport it can be.

The only person who is wrong here is you, tony, because you can't control your behavior and don't think anyone else should either. Nice try, though.

So how you doin' in the SF NASCAR Fantasy League? Oh wait, I'm sure you won't answer that question either.

??? wrong once again.....so much for you being "sure":

1 Ford Rules 2,056
2 Jimmie's Jewel 1,956
3 Under10 1,911
4 MK Ultra 1,896
5 Darlington Motorsports 1,892
6 Whole Shots 1,814
7 RIT Racing 1,789
8 DeIntimid8tors 1,754
9 the MisFiTs 1,684
10 IA Hawgs 1,646
11 GridironGrace 1,609
12 Steel Wheelz 1,516
13 whodey wholigans 1,425
14 TeamTony 1,405
15 Team Pittsburgh 1,404
16 xxx 1,385
17 SteelWheels

not to be so blunt, but really youre just a bunch of letters and words on a computer screen so i really dont care if youre beating me in a fantasy league. theres no $10,000 prize, and no pride to be gained or lost (not for me anyways). ive seen chimps who can pick stocks and ive seen dogs who can pick winning horses at the track. now THATS impressive.

this thread has been effectively derailed, but the point still stands. nascar will not be removing friends and family from the pits. nor should they.

So who is that there in the #9 and #2 spots? I'm sure you're not the one with the username Jimmie's Jewel. That, of course, would be me. Ahhh... I love Jimmie so...(lol). Try to keep up, tony.
