If it was about any other driver I would have changed the channel. I kept watching to see how he could possibly lose that race. Kudos to NASCAR for not throwing the yellow when Kyle Busch and Blaney blew tires at the end. I was thrilled Martin was finally able to break through!

Yeah glad nascar didn't throw the yellow, if it had been anyone else I bet the yellow comes out. Good for Truex! But he stunk up that race bigtime. haha

I was rooting for Jimmie Johnson to win and was really hoping for a yellow.
It's fine Truex won, better than a Bush or Logano!

Kudos to the #18 & #21 for not staying out and shredding rubber in hopes for a caution.

That too. I like Blaney, but I was yelling "Get on the apron!" As he went down the backstretch.

I sat in the stands at the Indy 500 this year and watched the 600 back at the hotel. My eyes are shot from 1,100 miles of race watching in one day.

NASCAR type win at INDY (gas mileage)

Snoozer at Charlotte but Truex finally got what he deserved.

350,000 fans, it was crowded. The final 10 laps were thrilling, the leaders coming in and giving up the lead.
It was on my bucket list so now I can check Indy off.
