Valentino Rossi impresses in NASCAR test

Valentino Rossi indulged in his passion for four-wheeled motorsport in America yesterday when the Italian tested Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Toyota Camry at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Fresh from a disappointing sixth place in the inaugural Circuit of the Americas MotoGP race in Texas, Rossi got behind the wheel of the 650bhp NASCAR to put in a series of fast laps around...

It seems he's added a red neck to match his yellow belly

NASCAR? Any "sport" where the fans gorge on chocolate coated bacon on a stick ( http://www.google.com/search?num=10&hl=en&authuser=0&site=imghp&tbm=isch&q=chocolate%20coated%20bacon%20on%20a%20stick&oq=chocolate%20coated%20bacon%20on%20a%20stick&biw=1264&bih=899&sei=h9F3Uc-PNeme0QWZpIDYBA#imgrc=0kisExrCZW0A9M%3A%3BL-cF6VBf6ZeSxM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fcache.gawker.com%252Fassets%252Fimages%252F12%252F2009%252F12%252Fchocolate_covered_bacon_on_a_stick.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.grandiloquentbloviator.com%252F2009_12_01_archive.html%3B800%3B590 ) is worthy of his attention.

I'm pretty confident most of us on this forum could jump in a NASCAR and go pretty quick, just the 4 gears and at least one " Y " in your name is about all there is to it.

stoner would whip him again

and then the hoards of retards would make a thousand excuses for rossi's lack of talent again. Then rossi would blame it on the machine... and the engineers... and the manufacturer...

It's either drag or cabaret on a cruise ship

Perhaps he could combine the two? Or maybe Uccio could be Debbie McGee to Rossi's Paul Daniels? just throwing ideas out there...

Yes ElDiab...

...& yet again you click on the car thread you hate... yep, in fact in the 17 years (278 races) he's been racing he's had 105 really good days (wins)... a further 73 averagely good days (podiums)... that leaves 105 bad days (if you include the days he couldn't race)... of which 41 have happened in the last 3 years... almost half... the last 3 years have mostly been made up of what you call "one bad day"s.

Saying he's had one bad day & 9 years of good days doesn't really tell the whole story does it?

Oh, & his "2 years on a crappy ride"  was actually a choice he made... it's previous owner in 2 years & 36 races had 17 good days & 19 bad 'uns... nobody forced him to switch to a bike he couldn't ride.

He's now switched back to Yamaha but with only one good day to one bad one the jury's out on which will prevail... there is hope.

As i suspected you like Nosto's fav site, Wiki

Just looked on there me sen and dumped some stats into Excel just for you.  I brought in the stats for Rossi, Casey, MM and Jorge for their career so far in GP racing (all classes).  The results suggest Rossi has had far more better days than all of them so far.  All be it MM and Jorge are still hanging in there to improve their record (Gone Fishing)  Just thought you and Nostro would appreciate looking back!

Rider             Starts          Wins        Podiums      Win Rate %     Podium Rate %

Rossi              278             105            178                  37.77%             64.03%

Casey            176               45               89                   25.57%             50.57%

MM                  80                 27               41                   33.75%             51.25%

Jorge             180               45               99                   25.00%             55.00%
