    I dont watch nascar but just saw a replay on espn and see what you guys are talking about. Hissing, you may be correct, I have never seen natural grass look so green, and there is no way a striping would have that much contrast in color between the darker and lighter areas. I say its paint now that Ive seen it.

    The thing I noticed watching the race the portion by the main straight-away looked like it was scalped everyother stripe and the uncut portion was tall. You could see dirt up close where it was mowed. From a distance it looked good.

    The stripe next to pit road was always dark... no matter if you were looking from the turn 1 side or turn 4 side. You would figure if it was real and had been rolled looking from one way the blades/stripe would be light. Either way it looked good.

    I bet it looked much better on TV than it looked in person. I thought it looked very thin in the stripes that were light green, like it had been seeded or sodded in stripes and fertilized or painted stripped too.
