Restrictor plates at the All Star race.


Plates never end well.. The last time I recall them being used outside of Daytona/Talladega was New Hampshire in 2000.. Though it seems some Xfinity race did use them at some point?



For those that don't remember that race.. Certainly top-10 snoozefests in the past 20 years. As far as just BAD races, this and the Brickyard where they threw competition cautions ever dozen laps would be at the top of the list.

The empty seats are shocking. Yes it has rained but this isn’t a monday or a late start. I wonder now if Cup will survive.

I'm actually impressed that Larson stayed up there today.. Normally, you have a situation like this where the track conditions change so much, those that were at the front fall to the back. Good work on the part of his team to adjust.


Didn't talk about Bobby Labonte running the Euro series full time.. I don't know enough about that series.. They only ran 16 laps at Valencia, Spain.. It looks like they run all road courses and fairly short races. Started 20th, finished 14th
