09:20 AM ET 12.11 | According to a tweet by Ramsey Poston, NASCAR's Managing Director of Corporate Communications, the organization is changing the required dress code for visitors in the pits at races next season: "Another fan friendly move - NASCAR dress code in garage & cold pits now includes: shorts, short sleeve/sleeve-less shirts & open-toed shoes". The rule will not apply to hot pits. In previous years, the policy required everyone to wear long pants, close-toed shoes and shirts that fully covered the shoulders.

Thank You Raistwalker; I don't look forward to them like I used to. LOL Thank you also to SLY 1 and Mr. Nice for the best wishes yesterday. Sorry, I didn't acknowledge them but I was on the go all day. I figure that as long as I keep moving, things will be alright. LOL
I wonder if T&R put that nice picture of the M&M's up there for my birthday. LOL Who doesn't love love ?

Not sure how safe a move this is with the dress code change, but at least it appears to be moving in a good direction.....it sounds like this is for distance viewing rather than being right in the actual car stall.

With all thats going on in Nascar, they give us a story about dress code, now thats Lame, good evening to everyone here, been a quiet day I see, that is good. LOL

December 11, 2010  11:25 PM ET

Wow, quiet here today and tonight. Just missed a big accident on the Interstate, saw the sparks and cars spinning and I was just getting near an exit. Off the exit I went, better than sitting up there for two hours. They love to shut roads down in Florida when they have an accident. Don't quite understand this new dress code, when I go on a pit pass, I can't get to the garage area anyway. Just the pits and you can watch them bring the cars out and park them on pit road. Everyone wears sandals and shorts etc.
Thanks svt, I try to forget the birthdays at this stage of the game.

another important article on nascar. I give up.

December 12, 2010  09:26 AM ET

Goodbye

Good evening to all = Float was the last ont to comment, Float, I get the impression jkindelray is either mad at you for some reason, or ignoring you, either way it's a shame, but it's none of my business so I won't go there, been another long day for me, so I will say good night to who ever is on, or comes on.

A little spam here, a little spam there. Here a spam, there a spam. Everywhere a spam.

Michael Vick looked pretty good tonight. Not an Eagle fan but I am glad to see Vick doing well.

December 13, 2010  08:18 AM ET

Good Morning all! Except the Spammers!

December 13, 2010  08:18 AM ET

I don't totally agree with this. It is for safety reasons. I've been in the garage areas on race days and qualifying. It is hectic there. It may be fan friendly, but it isn't in the best interest of safety for all.

December 13, 2010  08:56 AM ET

these rules were put in place at some point for good reason; at some point there will be an issue and a law suit and someone at nascar will scratch their head and remember why they never used to allow shorts and sandels in the garages...dumb.

Good Day to all the posters on FanNation, This SPAM thing has got out of hand, I remember in 06 - 09 we never had a problem like this, In my own way of thinking, if they can delete accounts of people on here, why can't they use the IP address's of these guys and close them down. Anyway, have a great day guys & gals if any, stay warm if you can.
