NBC coverage has been worse this year and the only change is Bill Webber doing the Play-by-Play…is that just a coincidence?
Something very touching about hearing the Pledge of Allegiance with a backup group of over 100,00!
Race Grade B+
Not the best Richmond race ever but it was entertaining as usual.
F for Robby Gordon
wrecking early and often and getting into a duel with Sterling Marlin
off and on, it was another typical night for Robby.
D for Jeff Gordon and His Team
the driver lost his nerve? Any time this car is not perfect he drifts
back through the field. The team added to his problems by missing a lug
nut on an early pit stop too.
C for Mark Martin and His Team
the team and the driver showed heart by refusing to give up even though
they lost two laps early with a cut tire. Rallying to finish 13th
showed that this team is pumped up for the championship run!
B for Matt Kenseth and His Team
best pit crew in the business gained him spots in the pits almost every
stop and the driver kept his position. The rally to get into the Chase
by this team is one of the most remarkable comebacks in recent years!
A for Kurt Busch
a lame duck driver doesn’t seem to be distraction for this team or
driver. They have both returned to championship form just in time to
defend their title!

I’m hoping that Mark Martin will win and thinking that Biffle will. But I will be completely unsuprized if, despite the doomsayers prediction of a lame-duck team disintigration, Kurt’s focus carries him and his team to back-to-back championships.
