    If they could do that, they would. Test runs have shown the cars still able to hit 230-240 without any form of restriction at Talladega, and they don’t want to have a car flip into the grandstands like Bobby Allison almost did in 1987. The only track close to 220 was repaved Michigan, and that...

    To be fair, the Roval was in development long before Brian’s arrest and that’s more of an SMI thing, less of a NASCAR thing. They also announced the Sonoma layout change after the race last year in June That being said, Jim France is great and I think the high downforce package is mostly just a...

    Jay himself is set to retire after they get the site fully operational, so wait a couple of months to see that. Scott is going to take over most of the operations like he already kinda was in the last couple of years

    Honestly? Their best solution is to have five more races like we had Sunday there, and they’ll be alright. I don’t know about ever selling the place out again, but they could fill it back up again. All of those other problems I mentioned have always been problems. That didn’t stop it from being...

    Everything really. Track hasn’t had consistent quality in some time. Weather has been awful last few years for this race and there was rain in the forecast. Bruton thinks charging people an arm and a leg for tickets and only drawing 50,000 people is worth more than cheap tickets and packing...

    I’d put Ganassi above Hendrick for now, maybe flip if Hendrick continues to make progress. Also... come on guys. I put Kyle in the same tier as Terry Labonte, Bill Elliott, Rusty Wallace, Ned Jarrett, Junior Johnson, and Mark Martin. All Hall of Famers, but you’d think I grouped him with Brian...

    I feel like tiers are kinda the best way to go about that A Earnhardt Petty Johnson AB Pearson Gordon B Allison Cale Waltrip C Stewart Lee Petty Tim Flock D Thomas Rusty Elliott Terry Labonte Martin Kenseth Harvick Kyle Busch Ned Jarrett Junior Johnson Then you kinda have everybody else

    The only thing I’ve heard about 2021 is that the only sacred cows are Daytona in mid February, Charlotte on Memorial Day weekend (and by proxy the ROVAL in the fall), and Darlington on Labor Day weekend. And that Phoenix is very likely to stay as the finale track. Otherwise everything is on the...

    Both 200s are flawed and not comparable to anybody else’s numbers. Busch for getting a lot of those by racing in the lower series and Petty for winning a number of 50 milers against 20 other cars, of which he had significantly more resources than.

    One other thing Kyle, Keselowski, and Logano have going for them is that once Johnson and Harvick are gone, they’re going to be the new veterans of the sport even though Kyle is still under 34. So they’ll have years upon years of experience on their competition for the next five years before...

    I didn’t say that. I’d probably be mad about it too if I were Logano. But he didn’t need to go over to him on pit road, or just automatically assume that McDowell would cost himself what is probably going to be his only top 5 of the year. And at the end of the day, these guys are going 200 mph...

    Kyle also said in the bullpen post race that he didn’t think McDowell helped him much either, but at least he was mature enough not to go make a big stink about it on pit road

    You have to love Joey Logano, who is the defending series champion and a former Daytona 500 champion, throwing a hissy fit about McDowell not sacrificing himself ala Blaney in the Duels so that Logano can contend for a win.

    Stewart Friesen got a top 10 while watching the finish from the garage. Michael Self finished ninth in a Truck my Golf could probably beat in a race. And a Cope Twin finished ahead of both of them in eighth. Was this trucks or ARCA

    I honestly don’t know and that’s some valid points, but have heard they do have a lot in the vault. Plus, this experience tells you that most of the people who are uploading these full races to Youtube are only doing it for historical reference. I’m sure most of them would donate their...
