It's Been a Wild Ride ......
« on: March 14, 2013, 01:32:16 AM »
It's been a crazy 6 years. Roughly 2500 members; nearly 100,000 posts. Lots of laughs. More than enough tears. Through it all, it was still about the Nascardiacs. :-)

Unfortunately, neither Scott nor I have the time to invest any longer, and so, with yet another renewal approaching, we've decided to pull the plug and let Nascardiac.com rest in peace (seems appropriate after losing a few of our founding members). Come March 27, 2013, Nascardiac.com will enter into the Interwebs Pearly Gates. It's a bittersweet pill to swallow, but it is what it is. :-(

Thanks for the ride, Nascardiacs. You guys have never ceased to amaze us. And MASSIVE thanks to Signholder and Signspotter for helping us with an epic rocket launch at Texas Motor Speedway, on SPEED Channel, in April 2007.


Quack & Scott

(P.S. Should someone wish to take over hosting and management, Scott and I would be happy to oblige. We hate to see it come to an end; we just simply do not have the time any more. Feel free to PM me if you are interested.)

This is sad, sad news!

I can understand but I find it hard to accept. I wish that I was in a position to do something about this but sadly, I am not.

I would not openly promote another NASCAR Forum here but under the circumstances, I would like to recommend http://racing-forums.com/ as an active alternative.

Thank you, Quack! Thank you, Scott!
We will remember Landscape. We will remember Herm.
We will remember the community.
I will miss it.

And thanks to all of the Nascardiacs who made this fun for me!
Thanks to MOON even!!  ;D Seriously, Thanks, MOON! You made things quite interesting with your insights and your opinions.

I have a facebook presence and I would invite any of you to send me a friend request. Some of y'all are already FB pals - but there is room for more!!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
SPIT!

 All good things must come to an end. I'm hoping the apathy on NASCAR online forums has more to do with Facebook and Twitter vs. fans just giving up on the sport. Thanks for letting me be a member. Y'all are some good folks. Take care.  8)

 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'

Ok, here is my email address:
jules.tunes@yahoo.com
I dont know how to figure out my facebook address
But, you can search it with
jules.tunes@sbcglobal.net  (I do Not use this as an email for contacts, its only for fb, therefore I never check it)
my pro picture of course is Jr. doing his burn out at Michigan.

And if any of you have other sites you are in let me know. I cant see losing contact with you. Especially when we are going to races and wanting to meet up.

As far as mod. I would have no idea what it takes to keep this going, or I would volunteer.

Go to your FB personal page and look at the browser info. It will be www.facebook.com/julie or something like that. Then you can copy and paste it with Ctrl C to copy and Ctrl V to paste.

I hope this helps. But we are already FB friends so... LOL
SPIT!

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
