Gaytona.com... A site for gay NASCAR fans.

for both of them?

I cannot understand what needs a gay NASCAR fan could possibly have that would not be served by a regular NASCAR site. Everything you use doesn't have to be gay just because you are, you know.

jpoulos, you read my mind.

One day you'll get in your gay, drive to pick up your gay, then the both of you will go to the gay to buy more gay so you can gay the gay gay gay at gay gay and gay. Oh, and you'll marklar, too. Gayn't Malcovich that, now gay you?

That said, I love the ad for Gazzelle's and don't think I'd find such a one at any other Nascar-related site.

kindall, Maybe, just maybe given Nascar's reputation as a "redneck sport", gay people haven't given it a chance. Don't you think it might be a way to bring more people into the sport who might not appreciate it otherwise?

Not that I am any sort of expert, but it seems more like a drag queen site for NASCAR fans - my understanding is that not all gay men dress in women's clothes (someone may be able to correct me on this).

Isn't this the sort of thing that is doing more harm to gays than good? As with kindall, I think that this just segregates gay NASCAR fans from other NASCAR fans. Why? What is it FOR?

but what would gay nascar fans do at a race? well, when in rome...

"show me your tits!, er, i mean..."

the stereotypes excercised in this comment are not necessarily the stereotypes held to by the poster.

I think this is a great idea, but i'm not gay or into nascar. Can anyone point me to a good site about needlepoint for straight white guys between 5'11" and 6'1" of irish descent? The closest I can find is one for bisexual white guys between 5'11" and 6'2" of scottish descent, and frankly, I just don't want to associate with them.

According to most NASCAR fans I've met, any NASCAR fan that doesn't have a Calvin pissing on the number 24 logo on his website is obviously gay.

I want names, damn it. Who are these gay Nascar fans? I will immediately report them to Homo Central Command for immediate interrogation and expulsion from the order.

someone check to see if straightona.com and heterotona.com are available.

Alright, that's enough. We've had discussions recently about gay heavy metal, and now, gay NASCAR. What ever happened to traditional, gay values?

duckstab, you could always ask Rosey Grier...

Well, for one thing, I don't think your average NASCAR site would really be amenable to discussions of Jeff Gordon's pert young buttocks and lithe frame.

Nor would it be an appropriate place for Earnhardt / Martin fanfic. Or for *anyone* / Dick Trickle fanfic, for that matter.

OTOH, a discussion about the circumstances under which you should pull a rubber from your rear should be welcome at any NASCAR site.

I'm all for this.
I hope they gay up congress, next.

Right, and we really need to keep them together, because once they start to splinter off like that wiping them out will be so much more difficult.

What no 'all you NASCAR haters are elitist nancy-boys" flameouts yet?

How disappointing. If you don't get in your regular dose of NAPCAR bashing the mullets might start to think they don't actually suck, and then where do we draw the line?

I've always thought NASCAR was really gay. Oh wait, did I say NASCAR? I meant E! News Live host Steve Kmetko.

Oh, I wouldn't worry too much: the candelabras and pitchers of Cosmopolitans set out tastefully on linen picnic blankets will probably help you spot them pretty darned quick... Of course, you could just bomb every VW Beetle in the parking lot, too...

And will no one think of the lesbians? Drinkin' beer, drivin' pickups, eyein' some titties... Sounds like a dream come true for some of the gals I know...

Sounds smurfy to me.

Thanks for the multiple pop-ups and the attempt by Gator to re-colonize my computer. I'm glad I fixed my browser after my Xupiter infestation last month, or it probably would have gotten me. As it was, it crashed my browser. Please don't do that again. That's the angriest any link here has gotten me in months. Please don't link to sites that pop up that bad without warning.

Perhaps alumshubby was using a browser w/ pop-up blocking and didn't know about the pop-ups. I know I'd never check a site I'm linking to to see if it contained any pop-up ads.
