What is the best Race in May?

Post by BWard on Tue May 01, 2012 3:07 pm

A quote from NASCAR.com:

The temperature is getting hotter outside and so is the action on the track. Coming off a riveting race at Richmond, the Cup Series now heads into one of its most exciting months with four completely different events, yet very similar in heart-pounding action.

First up, pack racing at Talladega followed by a yearly visit to the Track Too Tough to Tame followed by two weeks in Charlotte with the All-Star Race and then the marathon 600-miler. But which race is your favorite?

Without any question it is the Indianapolis 500. It is truly the greatest spectacle in racing.

Indianapolis 500 is the single greatest race in the world. There's something about that race that sets it apart from the rest. Even in the crappy IRL era the Indy 500 still was special and it's even better now.

If you're talking auto racing in general in May, I think Indy is the obvious one.

But, I still like Darlington for the same reason as Indy. It's the history.

Really? I haven't enjoyed F1 at Monaco since I was 5 scratch

Formula 1 may provide some decent racing at Barcelona, not sure though. More likely the Indy 500 over any NASCAR or F1 event, I think..

I always enjoy the month of may because I get to see drivers take on the most difficult circuits in the world, tracks that always bring out the best of the best. Darlington, Indy, and Monaco will be enjoyable, just simply because of the talent it takes to be good there. They could be total snoozefests, but I will still enjoy them.

Always found Monaco exciting. Indy has more prestige no doubt but Monaco is also an enjoyable race.

I'll say Monaco Grand Prix, due to the fact that Formula 1 isn't dominated by the top 3 teams any more. Though this year will be my first time watching both in the Indy 500 and Coke 600 live.

Darlington is number 1 for sentimantal reasons. Monaco and Indy follow closely. Then the Coke 600, which I still enjoy for some reason. Then Talledega. And the Winston trails by a wide margin. Actually, I enjoy the Open far more than the main event. Aside from the time the Busch brothers wrecked each other, there hasn't been anything really interesting about the race since '96.

I suppose it was probably the fact I'm old enough to have seen Senna and Alesi at their prime. Nothing's comparable to that Very Happy

It all depends on what your definition of "best" is.

If you're talking about most prestigious, then it's, no doubt, the Indianapolis 500. And it always will be; It's the biggest race in the world. Even in the darkest days of CART/Indycar, it was huge, and that fact attests to it's status as a world-class race; The biggest, most famous race on the planet.

Of course, we can't forget the Grand Prix of Monaco. It's the most prestigious Formula One race of them all. So, realistically, it's going to be a huge race. Is it as big as the Indy 500? Absolutely not, but it's still a great spectacle. I expect this year's race to be pretty good.

Now, as far as racing quality, that's completely objective. There are so many races in May; You have your "big" races, such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Coca-Cola 600, and you have the "smaller" races like the All-Star race and the truck race at Charlotte. As to which one provides for the best racing? That's for everyone to decide for themselves.

Personally, I'm looking forward to Monaco the most, then Darlington (I have high hopes for my driver ^_^)
