Can’t we get decent tires at Lowe’s Motor Speedway? Charlotte used to give us the best racing around, and now it is just a wreckfest waiting to happen.
While this is NOT real racing, Talladega is sure an exciting event! This year featured over 60 lead changes, with 40 of them legitimate green-flag passes on the track. Now, if we can just get NASCAR to not play GOD with the results… we will be OK.
In the high-pressure world of the Chase, one can understand an engine failure like Kevin Harvick’s last week, where a team is pushing its equipment to the cutting edge to gain any advantage they can. But for a fuel pump to fail on Jeff Gordon’s car… how is that possible?
The multi-groove thing finally came into play late in the race, setting up a classic Dover dash for the lead with Matt Kenseth up high and Jeff Burton down low! Now, if we could just get TNT to take those commercial breaks earlier instead of ruining the flow in the last 150 laps every race!
Can we spend just a few minutes mentioning NASCAR’s non-Chasers, please? Otherwise, sponsors will leave and we will end up with fewer quality teams in a few years!
On Friday night for the Busch race, we got a classy rendition of the National Anthem by a military band. Saturday night, we got an out-of-tune rock band just there to promote their album. Classy addition, though, to include the Pledge of Allegiance in the pre-race festivities, way to go, Richmond!
