Today's Xfinity race has been incredibly bad. 70 minutes since the green flag flew and they're not even to lap 30. Two huge crashes have taken out 2/3 of the field. Under red for the second time cleaning up the carnage.

What a mess. I don't think I've ever seen clean-ups take that long, unless a wall was knocked down which I didn't see. Red flagging it seemed a bad choice.

All the points for this and that and the other seems messy, too. Anyhoo, thought Harvick did a good job.

Gorgeous cool day in the fla, should make for some good HP! Hopefully a better race.

Lots of young aggressive drivers out there today................the segments are keeping everyone together where traditionally you wind up with separate groupings of cars.

Not sure I like the chess game like strategy that comes with the segments and cautions now

Holy crap, what a suspenseful last 10 laps. Congrats to Kurt Busch.

What sucks, though, is that next week's race probably won't be as good.

Shocker.. Jamie McMurray caused a wreck today.

I was actually glad to hear Jeff Gordon, at least attempt to call him out on it.

I've been talking about him for years. He's too reckless on plate tracks.

And I'm disappointed.. No conspiracy theories running wild on here yet of how the Monster Energy sponsored car won the first Monster Energy Series race..

Haas was on the hood and Monster was the associate. However, with today's crashfest conspiracy theories pretty much went out the window.
On a side note the race and finish were interesting. This segment stuff may work but, a more finite strategic pattern will take about 6-10 races to form and provide a objective picture, IMO.
