Didn't Ned Jarrett apologize to Dale Earnhardt, Sr. afterwards for cheering on his son? I remember Dale, Sr. saying something like, "Ned, I'm a daddy, too."

They're doing some sort of pre-order deal that will allow you to drive IndyCars in GRID 2, but nothing about a dedicated Indy game.

I think DW's call of the 2001 500 finish was worse than Ned in that.

I don't think either call was all that bad. I can understand why they would both cheer on family, so I won't bash them for that. I find it funny that during most ESPN broadcasts, Rusty Wallace doesn't acknowlage that Steven is his son.

Hello, I was once known as Rovenami on the EFR forums to say that I am deeply and most sincerely apologize for all the stuff I have posted prior to being banned from this forum, especially to the people I have ticked off in the Dan Wheldon thread and to the admins and moderators, most notably Cynon, Snake, antknee, Ceej, etc. What I did that got me banned from the EFR forums not only made me look like an immature noob, but it was also an insult to me, the EFR forums, the sim-racing community and worst of all...it was an insult to NR2003 itself. With this, I give to you, the members of the EFR forums, my apologies for all the damage I have caused that led me to be banned from the EFR forums.

Got our interwebs upgraded at the homestead. Was running the 3 mb/s AT&T DSL but now we've got the super-deluxe 11 mb/s dealie. (UVerse just arrived in my area, in case anyone was wondering.)

Upshot: pages load much faster. Also means that I might finally attempt online racing!

115 years ago, a young Italian was born in Modena. Known as "il Commendatore", he was the pioneer of Italian engineering creating such cars as the 125S, the 250, the 365 GTB/4 "Daytona" and the F40. His name was Enzo.

I think my school was one of the few school that were open today in Michigan. I had to walk out into the blizzard 3 times today just to get to my classes since my high school uses 2 buildings.
