Think I'll play a few games myself right now. Need to get my guy to at least 80 overall before NHL 13 comes out.
As for racing, I've always enjoyed F1 and I use to watch some NHRA and unlimited hydroplane racing when I was younger. Never really been much of a NASCAR fan. My dad has been involved in Dirt Late Model racing for the last 10 years or so and has sponsored a number of racers. Here's a short video from a number of years ago of hot laps (warm-ups) at Golden Isles Speedway in Florida. They had to shorten the track a couple years ago because it was too fast. The sheet metal was literally ripping off the cars.
The number 42 you see in the video is the guy my dad is currently sponsoring. My dad took a break from racing the last couple years but got back into it this year. You can see Terry (the driver) going into turn #3 too fast and he jumps the cushion.
