I think it's usually ~$30 for a full season, but I know they discount during the year, so you may be able to get it for around $15 right now. Just be aware that it's an automatic renewal (I think), so you'd have to call or chat or whatever to cancel if you decided not to continue with it next season. But as a new Nascar fan, I think you might enjoy it.

Unless he gets hurt, Kenseth will be running every race through the finale on November 22nd.

I haven't really decided if I'm a "fan" yet, but I enjoyed watching the one race I did. I will have to look into the scanner, I'm intrigued.

Thanks!!

Kenseth went from 14th to 3rd in the first 20 laps before he wrecked. 11 spots! I'm still bummed. He probably had the car to beat! Uggghhh. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Also, I love NBC for getting in on the throwback fun. The broadcasters were wearing 70s outfits and the network even played the old "Hey kid" Coke commercial! And it's sort of ironic that one of the few regular paint schemes won the throwback race.

Denny Hamlin wins first Chase race; Harvick left fuming at Johnson

Denny Hamlin punched his ticket into the next round of the Chase, winning despite a torn right ACL. Hamlin beat Kurt Busch and Jeff Gordon on the final restart with five laps remaining. Hamlin, who recovered from an early spin, did not pit on the last pit stop. Crew chief Dave Rogers took a chance and they stayed out on older tires. Hamlin hurt his knee Sept. 8 while playing basketball.

$5 part eliminates six-time Cup champ Johnson

There's no such thing as a lock since NASCAR created its elimination-style format for the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Just ask Jimmie Johnson.
