    "while maintaining their independence" my ass. NASCAR doesn't stop trying to shoehorn LEGITIMATE media, let alone Joe Blogger.

    Has the potential to be as horrific as a Talladega 'big one'.

    Of course, that's assuming many NASCAR fans can read and write, which may be an overly generous assumption.

    That was my first thought. They're not really reaching out to the best and brightest here, are they?

    TALLADEGA, Ala. - Jeff Gordon is a fag.

    What? NASCAR didn't have enough look-the-other-way, swallow-the-party-line pseudo journalists in its horde to begin with?

    "Providing access"? You mean the 10-minute hauler gangbangs and team/driver PR gestapos who specialize in saying no? And the governing body that wouldn't reveal what sauce Mayfield was on by saying "it's not relevant to the public interest"?

    Just checking.

    I was going to say it basically means they'll get access to the teleconference.
