I'm going to have a hard time caring what the hell NASCAR does next year if this is what we get for the final race. No bueno!
I didn't notice anything different. Which broadcast were you watching? NBCSN was carrying a different feed than NBC, which was the normal broadcast.

Can't take it away from Shrub. He won the big trophy fair and square under the rules set by Nascar.

Now, I personally think the rules are BS that allow a champion to miss a third of the season. But, that's my opinion. But you can't blame that on the driver.

And yes, there were two different feeds on NBC and NBC Sportschannel. My wife was going back and forth between the two channels trying to find the NBC Football highlights show.

Crap! That explains it. I was gone all day so I recorded the race on NBCSN because the post race was to be there.(was watching when I posted here) I had no idea the race had two different feeds.

NBCSN is replaying NBC's normal feed now and I'm embarrassed I thought what I saw last night was the main feed to the masses.

Cheers to Rowdy and the 18 team. I was rooting for my long time favorite, Jeff Gordon, but it wasn't meant to be.

Kyle deserves the Championship.

Looking forward to have more free Sundays next year.

#24Ever!!

I'm happy for Busch as he's certainly a great driver but it's still BS. The race was a bit dull and the last mystery caution was crap, as usual. Talk about manufacturing drama - not. Thought it was funny that the top 4 for the first handful of laps were the chase guys. Hmmm, interesting. lol I swear nascar has to lose the WWE junk or they are doomed.

Hard to believe the 24 is no longer the 24. Gordon has been the glue for nascar for a long time. Watching yesterday couldn't help but notice the ages of the main players. Going to be some massive retirements soon and I don't see the younger guys being up to the challenge of moving this sport forward. Time will tell but looks like the end game now.

Yeah.. I was flipping between the two, because I honestly thought they were going to switch the race over to NBCSN at 7pm to let Football Night in America come on. I logged about 5 minutes with the NBCSN feed before I started getting a headache.

Kudos to NBC for pre-empting the NFL pre-game show.

I think he will. He has the pedigree and the ability to do so. Winning a Nationwide/Xfinity and nearly repeating this year (down 15 points) would be a pretty good indicator. Of late we have seen future Cup champions be champions in that series (Keelowski and Busch.) I want it but I am not intending to watch the races to find out, until NASCAR makes it real racing. There's a problem when Monster Jam has a more legitmate point champion than NASCAR's premier series.

Now.. Hold on there.

There have only been 2 true "Busch" series champions that went on to win the Sprint/Winston/Nextel Cup in my mind. Harvick and Bobby Labonte.. And.. Harvick you could make a weak argument against.

Labonte won the Busch championship in 91. A true Busch series driver who later moved up to Cup and then won a championship there.

Harvick.. In 2001, he ran both series full time, minus Daytona, of course. But.. I give him that and count him as a true Busch series driver who went on to win a Cup title. I don't count his 2006 title as him being a true 'Busch" champion.

Busch and Keselowski (And Harvick's second Busch title)... They were Busch-whackers. They were full time Cup drivers who moonlighted. I don't count them the same as Labonte and Harvick.

Should Earnhardt ever win a cup title.. I would certainly count him, because he was a true Busch driver when he won his championships there. Same with Biffle, Truex and Vickers, and everyone since and including Stenhouse. But I don't count anyone from 2006-2010 as a true "Busch" champion, as they were all full time cup drivers at the time.


And.. Well, just throwing this in there.. Stewart is the only Winston Cup, Nextel Cup and Sprint Cup champion. All three of his championships came with a different title sponsor.

Stewart won in all but the current chase co figuration too.

I can agree with the Busch, Busch-Whacking but Brad wasn't that good that year in cup, partly because he got called up to replace David Streme and was only a top 10 car in Atlanta before Carl Edwards wrecked him. Brad's Busch-Whacking is a bit different as while he was a NASCAR Cup driver, he wasn't fresh. Plus he would have clearly won Nationwide twice under the modern rules too...
