    On Austin Dillon, I think he just rubs people the wrong way. I see him, and Ty, and it's like "Ehhh...no thanks."

    On the race, yeah I checked out at about 1/3 to 1/2 way in. Hornish was falling back, AD had just gotten the setup pointed the right way.

    Why is Kligerman getting a constant 'F-U' from NASCAR? Screwed in Trucks, Screwed in NNS, I don't think he ever got the ride he was supposed to coming out of ARCA in the first place.

    I think part of the hate for the Dillon's is that they have the image of rich kids that didn't have to work for their rides. Which I have never really got as there really aren't any "rags to riches" stories in modern day motorsports, you have to have quite a bit of money in the first place to get anywhere.

    It doesn't help. Seems like you have to be racing in some form from early childhood to even have a hope in hell of being recognized as a candidate for a seat in a development series, much less the main series.

    Problem is all the rags to riches stories are never seen because as you said they never make it to the big leagues.

    Would rather have seen Hornish win it. As for the fact that Austin hadn't won any races falls on to Busch, Keselowski and Logano winning everything this year.

    NASCAR just needs to get consistent with everything, and everyone. During one of the yellow flag pitstops, Dillon was speeding as he had gone from being behind a car that was already in the "fast lane" to being door-to-door with it.

    Kulwicki is the last driver that really fits that mold.

    What began in mid-February has now come down to this final race in mid-November. One last chance to finish the season on a positive note. Time to end the 2013 season of NASCAR racing with this Cup race around Homestead-Miami Speedway.

    Good luck to all drivers and teams in this season-ending race, and all congratulations to the series champion.

    And he did it by being stubborn as hell, refusing to give up and passing up opportunities to race for other teams.

    Thanks for that, cause this F1 race isn't really exciting and I'm not a big fan of Homestead but I hope it produces a good race.

    Just a thought, wasn't Homestead generally canned before they redid it?


    ALSO: Toby Keith gives the command. Not sure if into it already or drunk already.

    I always thought of the old Homestead as a mini-Indy. Now, new-Homestead is just like old-Atlanta, which used to be the last race of the season. What a mess.

    Wait, did they repaint the walls overnight?

    Every race at homestead has had a caution resulting from someone losing duct work this weekend.

    PK kind of did it to himself to some degree with his attitude, he called Penske out after they didn't have room for him or whatever happened with saying Brad's trucks weren't up to par basically and then Red Horse is known for self backed racers which they only had one who wasn't this year. KBM is what it is and he didn't exactly blow the doors off anyone neither did Kyle in that car though.

    Probably. They definitely repainted the yellow apron on the front straightaway.

    They always repaint walls/grass/track between races/overnight if needed.

    I have my back turned to the TV, which is playing the race, but I saw the replay, and man oh man was that close.
