Subject: Tire innovation for NASCAR

=========

Dear people of Fox NASCAR,

Half of the NASCAR broadcast on Fox is about tires. “he’s got clean tires.” “he needs new tires” “look at his right side tire!” Here’s a tire innovation for NASCAR…

The right side tire circumference is 87.375 inches. If the tires are not changed on a car, it would make 362,471 revolutions on a 500-mile track. That’s alotta wear. How about they go to a bigger tire. Say… a monster truck tire.

The world’s largest monster truck has a tire circumference of 377 inches. That’s just 84,033 revolutions. That’s over four times savings on revolutions.

Here’s some images of what this would look like.

After:

Can you imagine the pit crew trying to change four of those suckers?

MONSTER NASCAR! MONSTER NASCAR!

-a devoted NASCAR fan wishing to make the sport more efficient and monsterous,

actually, i remember several years ago, i was at your place using your scanner, and you were watching NASCAR, and we saw Dale Earnhardt crash, and it was when he died. it was so weird for me to witness such an event – it was the first time i had ever watched NASCAR, and one of the major people died! i haven’t watched since, just in case.
