Did You Notice? NASCAR & Politics, Raining on Goodyear & Penske’s Nasty Divorce

Did You Notice? That if Matt Kenseth does fall out of the Chase, the two races he’ll look to that cost him his opportunity were a failed fuel mileage gamble at Pocono – the race won by track position, not pure speed – as well as an explosive tire failure at Indianapolis. That makes me think the sport shouldn’t count points from that race… if the results at Indy were that controlled, aren’t you controlling who makes and misses the Chase by shutting out guys who had poor performances there?
