I can't believe any true NASCAR fan enjoys this crap. Even if my favorite wins (which I doubt) it still sucks.

Yes sir, it's a mess for damn sure. I wonder if the drivers even care for this crud? I was reading an article the other day and Dale Jr was very out spoken against it.

Wow was the race exciting

~yawn~

The most exciting aspect of the race was waiting to see if the 20 car was going to self-destruct...

I usually enjoy the packs in plate racing, but I don't care for the this "Noah's Ark" style of racing (2x2).

That being said, I didn't get to watch the race today as we were traveling home from the mountains. Sounds like I didn't miss anything earth-shattering.

Well I guess I missed the race, either traveling home or watching the Rangers take care of business. Anyhow, it doesn't sound like I missed anything.

It was one of the worst restrictor plate/tandem races in history. Not because of who did or didn't win but because of who didn't race and chose to ride around at the back for most of the day. Most of the fastest qualifiers all finished 20th or worse but you can't blame the drivers or team owners. Blame those running NASCAR who think RP/Tandem races is good for business.

Jeff Gordon stop the crying, did you really think Bayne was going to go with you when Kenseth needed a drafting partner? Bayne is a Roush driver not a Hendrick driver.
