NASCAR NICKNAMES

Get real guys!
How can we be having at least two nascar puzzles in the last six months with no football golf, baseball or basketball WP? (I remember one about racecourses -- there may have been more.)
Does smoke20 have a secret link to the puzzle setters?
Id prefer Welsh towns please.
And I'm waiting for the cricket, or bridge nicknames.

This puzzle may have as well been about particle physics for me, but I don't insist that every puzzle be in my area of expertise. However, the necessity of using certain web search engines to have any chance of finishing this puzzle leads me to be able to point out that one of the names in one of the puzzles is not spelled correctly--and that's according to this person's own official website. Just thought I'd point that out.

Put it like this, I wish I had known even a miniscule amount about NASCAR before I attempted this WP (as my lowly score proves!). LOL!

I don't think "Just for Lunatics" is NASCAR.

Only God and these two know what Smoke did for Justin
to get TWO NASCAR Puzzles - almost in a row!!!!
I see you're winning the first one Smoke, and you'd
BETTER win the second as well to make it all worthwhile!!!!
ALL means the jealousy, envy.......and the hate for having
to do these damn puzzles....

I'm afraid "Just For Lunatics" might be the Welsh Potterized NASCAR punny WP that Sploofusaurus threatened.

All I did was crack a joke about wanting a NASCAR puzzle after the last Potter puzzle! I promise it was totally a joke and I had NO expectation of it happening. I had to beg and grovel to get one for Speed Weeks back in February, and given the reaction to that one I never expected to see another. Nobody was more shocked by what happened than I. I feel sorry for those who are clueless - I know exactly how you feel from recent experience. The last thing I'm interested in is making people even MORE hostile to a sport I love as much as anyone loves any sport.

Great puzzle bring em on in bulk. The Busch Brothers, and J. J. Yeley were my hardest i think. I am not very informed on Harry Potter jusT have to fill in letters on a lot of puzzles, but still have fun doing it, but I Nascar. To each their own I guess. RT

I was kidding about not wanting NASCAR! It was fun. Methinks we just want to tease you, Smoke!

And I was getting psyched about the next one ... bummer!

For the life of me,i can not figure out what the big deal is about NASCAR.No offence intended but it is like watching a hampster on a wheel.What is the point.I hate it,i detest it,to me i could be doing something constructive(destructive) with my time,lol.

Well, to those who are really knowledgeable about it, there's a LOT more to it than that. It's a tremendously complicated and interesting sport that only seems deceptively simple, otherwise it wouldn't have held my attention for more than 30 years. I guess it just depends on what your interests are.

I love NASCAR racing, any kind of racing actually, and golf, TV golf. Both of these diversions are soooo exciting I settle in my Lazy Boy and I'm off to sleep in seconds.

Oh wow -- so much hostility!

Let me see of the things that I would do badly on.
NASCAR
Boxing
Football
Basketball
Hockey

There are a few that I'm not fans of, but I would never say some of the things that have been said or intentionally insult something that someone else loves - obviously MILLIONS as it is so popular.

However, since my motto is "Learn something new every day" - taking these kinds of puzzles certainly helps me fill that quest.

I think it is SAD that an editor would feel the need to withdraw a puzzle they had worked so hard on because they would feel the backlash from the islanders.

Words spoken can never be taken back - words written (especially in here) stay to be seen by all. After seeing the impact on Smoke I will certainly think twice before putting things in writing again, even if I know I wrote them as a compliment and for fun...because it was most CERTAINLY not an opening to attack either other islanders, their passions OR our hard working puzzle writers!

Just my two "worthless" cents
