    I wasn't really paying attention, but just looked over at tv and saw them getting back in the cars. I was wondering how they got the track dry so fast.

    That was a big hit for Bowyer.

    Well if that wasn't the most eerie yet vaguely touching thing I've ever seen in a motor race. Kinda reminiscent of the 9/11 tribute from 2011. And also something that could only have happened under these circumstances in this year. May we all look back on this race in these times years from now. 2020. The oddest season in NASCAR history.


    PS, it would have been icing on the cake to have the track lights go off for the duration.

    RIP Chase Elliot winning this. Atleast it wasn't Ky B's fault

    3 laps to go, just as I was saying we need a caution, there was a caution! I root for Rowdy, Horseface and White Bread. Horseface might just win this one.

    A late William Byron spin likely has cost Chase Elliott the victory.

    Moronic call by Elliott & crew. A race where clean air is king and tires don’t matter, if you get the lead off the restart there’s zero chance you get passed in two laps.....so he pits. I don’t like Chase but even I’m :banghead:

    As Mike Joy said, "Damned if you do, damned if you don't" regarding pitting there. It seems to happen way too often at the end of these races. Always a caution with a handful of laps to go.

    I came back to NASCAR because I was thankful to have any kind of real motorsport. It's taken less than a week to remind me why I stopped watching it.

    Indycar and IMSA can't get here soon enough.

    Good thing Jimmie didn’t win, since him losing the win wouldn’t have been popular.

    It also (not really) could have been where Chase finished even if he didn't pit as he now finishes 2nd.

    I would be stunned if Gustafson still had a job by Wednesday in the 9 team after last night, absolutely horrendous call. HMS truly is the Ferrari of NASCAR at this point :banghead:

    Dude can’t catch a break. Hope things start to turn around very soon. The cars are fast but he’s gotten unlucky a number of times already this season.

    There was really no winning in that scenario since if he didn't pit everyone else would making him a sitting duck. I knew right when the caution came out he was screwed for that very reason.

    And now we got Kyle Busch running this race as well because life isn't hard enough I guess.

    I was getting ready to say the xfinity race was more entertaining then the 600. Then the last 50 laps turned into a cautionfest.

    Also Kyle Busch getting his 97th win is just nuts.

    I already saw his win coming when he was leading with 50 laps to go

    Every Xfinity race with Kyle Busch follows the same narrative. Starts at the back (or at least in the teens), drives to the front, dominates the middle part of the race, fans lose hope, miraculously always gets some sort of penalty or has a loose wheel and either has to pit under green or go to the back (and under rare circumstances he crashes or blows up), fans get excited again, is there enough time for Kyle to drive back to the front? Some races there is, some races there isn’t. And so on.

    That race at Phoenix (2008 or 2009?) was both sad and impressive at the same time. Kyle starts towards the front, gets a penalty that drops him to dead last and spends the rest of the race just driving by cars (Even gets abit of middle finger action towards the officials in there) and still wins the race.

    The sooner Kyle gets out of the lower series the better, seriously seeing him do this unnecessary and meaningless crap is like if Lebron James played in the G League or if Hamilton still raced in F2 after winning 6 world championships.
