Haven't seen or heard anything to the contrary. I guess it'd be all over the place, if he could not run

Man Oh man, I think have never been so bored watching a NASCAR race. Just what the heck is going on? Where has all the appeal gone? I gotta refrain myself from tuning out, but I don't how long I can hold myself back.

Caution with roughly 30 to go. For what? A little piece of rubber, not even in the groove.
This is it, I'm gonna spend a significant amount of my time convincing sponsors to pull or reduce their involvement till NASCAR is just a pitiful shadow of its glorious past.

halfway through and still green at Indy, for Allen Bestwick of course its a real story, cause he not used to it covering nascar all the time.
So much fun to watch, if you don't know cautions are certain to wave, hope it stays green all the way 8)

Getting pretty close to going caution free, take note NASCAR.

Too abd cautions started coming out just when it got interesting, still a nice race though

My prediction for the 600 tonight, a minimum of 3 debris cautions

Apparently NASCAR has their cars so close to the ground they pick up the racing surface now.
And right away the pussies in the seats start menstruating about repaving the the track.
Of course it is entirely the track fault their "cars" can't race on anything that's not as smooth as a fukcin mirror

I also think Kyle Busch should have rearended Clint Bowyer big time, but since conformist nation is absolutely intolerant to display of rage and anger, we can't take pleasure in it.
What a bummer :cry:

That's what happens when you eliminate the minimum ride height and let the teams turn their cars into ground effect monsters.

Did you see how empty the grandstands were?

No, didn't watch the race yet, but I can imagine. I think Dover is one of the better tracks on the schedule, but it certainly suffers from JJ winning all the time. And they need a 500 miler, maybe invest in lights and race on Saturday night.

Of course all the debris cautions really harm the interest as well. I actually saw an article about it somewhere a few hours ago, because Bowyer blew off some steam about it. Was pretty glad about that.

NASCAR on FOX posted another survey: http://foxs.pt/1kGsu8p

Good chance for us all to blow off some steam as well. Just don't click non US, or it'll stop the survey.


NASCAR has really dug themselves a huge hole to get out of. They've damaged their credibility, everyone hates the Chase, the cars are bad and so is the racing.
And the economy isn't running in their favor either. If they do not adjust to the recession the US is in, they're really gonna go to hell in a handbasket.
They should look into shortening the schedule by a few races as well. Not that I'd like to see that, but I think it'd make sense.

Didn't you hear the news, the world is no longer in recession, we have growth, it's great, 0.012% growth a year.
</sarcasm>

NASCAR need to swallow their pride and admit they were wrong with the rules changes and change things back so the cars are more reliant on mechanical grip than aero, might save a few tracks from being damaged to if the cars are quiet literally not sucking themselves onto the road.

Most people have known since the 1970's that ground effects don't improve racing but rather make things worse, the theory of it is great, but it doesn't work in practice. When places like Dover have empty grandstands, you can only continue blaming the economy for so long before you have to start looking at the core product as being the problem. Iirc Dover is one of the cheapest tracks to get into.

I wonder if they're ever gonna do that. I have no clue why they made all those changes in the first place.
Did they wake up one morning and say hey these things need more downforce? Jeez

Of course all changes will be meaningless, if they continue throw cautions like there's no tomorrow :lmao:

LOL at the truck races. 27 starters, 20 are still running and 20 people in the stands.

I highly doubt they'll be back next year
