The earth will be rocking and rolling again, but unlike Julys quake, this time, it wont be registering at Caltech. The Inland Empire epicenter may be the same, but in this case, all the rumbling is man-made. Its NASCAR, baby, the largest spectator sport outside the Olympics. Take that , China. If you couldnt make it to Beijing, you can head over to the Auto Club Speedway, where more than 100,000 fans are expected. This being the IE, itll be hot, but therell be plenty of misters and shade areas. Therell be no relief, however, from the adrenalin rush youll get from watching the racers take a nice, casual Sunday drive at more than 200 mph.
