The NASCAR Sprint Cup series is making their return visit to the Monster Mile at Dover International Speedway. This is a mile track that, like New Hampshire, involves more finesse than horsepower. Those that hit their marks in the corners have the best chance at being around for the checkers at the end. Miss those marks and the Monster will chew you up in a hurry.
When the NSCS came to Dover earlier this year, it was right before we started our little website that could. In fact, we were still posting over at the Kitchen Sink. If you’d like a refresher in what Morgann and I had to say then, please feel free to click here for the preview and here for the post-race.
Let’s just summarize and say that both Morgann and I expected twisted sheet metal and endless drama. We were treated to hugs, flowers, and fluffy kittens and puppies. This was NOT the normal Monster race or mentality. Some of the boys were newly penalized for this race in May and everyone was big picture racing.
This will no longer be the case.
