I wanted Harvick to win it, but his final pit strategy didn't work out.
Boring as . They should of told the other 35 cars not to show up.
I haven't watched any of it but it makes you think on more of an exciting way to finish the season by a Daytona or Talladega as the final race.
Thoughts on that?
No. Too random. Under the current format, I want a race where the best driver/car combo wins the championship. Not one where the championship is decided by who wrecked out last.
I think everyone in here knows that I’m a Kyle Busch fan. I’ve said before that there are certain points in his career that made it really hard to be a fan. But I was pulling for him today and I am happy. There are problems with this format and I feel like he got the shaft last year. I guess you have to take them however. I stayed off social media all day because I was 3 hours from home and finally watched it. I think the outcome could have been a lot worse.
I had the race saved on my DVR and I barely cared fast forwading through it. There is no incentive wasting 10 months of racing when only one matters.
The season-long, non-playoff points after 36 races (with stage points). What a snoozefest. No one would be interested in watching that old fashioned trash...
(6th place Keselowski is way off, almost 200 points behind, it had been a 5 driver race for most of the last part of the season.)
(Also Logano entered Homestead as the points leader so if this was for the real championship that team would’ve been trying a lot harder and it would’ve been even closer)
All I'm gonna say is that I'm glad I didn't invest any time in this aside from Darlington. And nothing that needs to change will until it's too late, or at least to me. It seems I'm in the minority anymore when I talk to people, so I accept I may be part of the problem, but the only thing I've seen in the last three years that I found any interest in were the Darlington races, and I'm done with hoping to see anything I might like again from NASCAR.
How many cars were on the track today? NBC only showed 4 all race...
Good runs for Jones, Bowyer, Dillon, Newman, Bowman all completely ignored.
It was not so much a race as a coronation. Few problems allowed Kyle to win and that result was just. But watching it was not my idea of fun.
I find this to be a solid explanation of Sunday, but also a prime "Arrrgggghhhh NASCAR!" moment. I would have loved to see Larson or somebody else race with the leaders all day instead of just "the championship 4".
Do you not think NASCAR let the championship 4 have some leeway with the rules for this race? We had stage racing and staged racing.
The thought of NASCAR turning off the rules for 4 cars for one race makes my eyes want to roll out of their sockets. Therefore for the sake of my health, I'm just gonna let this season actually end.
NASCAR knows ratings are dying so there is no doubt that they rigged it for the final four, just like they gave their Prince Chase the best car the previous weeks but he is so pathetic that he wrecked the car on back to back weeks. Kind of sad what they will do for ratings. But unless they go back to the roots, NASCAR will continue to die that slow death by becoming WWE on four wheels
The first retirement announcement of many this coming season.
Wonder what the chances are of a NASCAR All-Star entry (Johnson, Gordon, Earnhardt Jr) showing up at the Daytona 24h in the next few years are? Hopefully Jimmie runs Le Mans as well since Gordon never bothered to.
Can't say I'm surprised, but this is unfortunate. Personally I hope someone like Kyle Larson, Ross Chastain, or even Bubba Wallace gets the ride
Not all that shocked to see this to be honest.
I'm hoping this happens and they bring this to Baltimore as a joint bill with the Stadium Super Trucks. I miss the Baltimore GP and my friends and I would welcome the Baltimore NASCAR 350 with open arms. https://jalopnik.com/nascar-looking-at-the-potential-for-street-races-purpo-1840049152
NASCAR penalizes backmarkers for manipulating the end of year points standings for the top non-charter team.
yay! No more Monster shenanigans.
Great now Richard Petty will have another championship title yet again, he's not ran a race in over 20 years.
New thread for the 2020 Season is up.
