9488

Could Joey Logano be one of the reasons Kentucky finally got a Cup race?

*10.* Home Depot really needed Joey Logano to win a race.

*9.* NASCAR looked at the schedule and decided there weren’t enough 1.5-mile racetracks. And since they are called “cookie” cutters… who doesn’t like cookies!

*8.* Brian France figured he could stick it to the folks at Indianapolis even more by taking their fans away.

*7.* Only a state without a stock car race would pay the exorbitant sanctioning fees that NASCAR wanted.

*6.* Bruton sent Brian France authentic Kentucky bourbon as a bribe.

*5.* NASCAR is trying to get their appeal to the redneck demographic back up.

*4.* Even Brian France had to admit racing at California was the worst thing the schedule had to offer.

*3.* Just another trial balloon to see if rural race tracks will work before they give a date to Iowa.

*2.* Another way to ensure a Cup race would not return to Rockingham or North Wilkesboro any time soon.

*1.* After two weeks of beatin’, bangin’, mayhem, chaos, and racing, it’s time to get back to our roots of calm, orderly, processional, single-file competition at a snoozer of a racetrack.
