Not a Kyle Busch fan but I would have like to see a split screen watching his charge to third place towards the end. I know the final laps were between first and second but dam Busch really cut his way through the field.

Again, great, great, great race!
I agree, I haven't watched a full race this year until this one. It started out wild and finished pretty much the same way.

Very happy to see Chase win. As I was watching the race at the beginning, I was thinking, could this be the day that Hendrick breaks it's losing streak? Looks like it was!

NASCAR could use more road courses. Fans love them, maybe not so much for the drivers.

i completely agree with this. nascar does need more road courses, and the drivers tend to like them as well.

I know that was meant to be funny, but.. Yes. Dead serious about that. He has a hard card, right? That should be pulled. Any team member would be suspended indefinitely, and he should be as well. Anyone with access to the garage area should be under the same rules.

He is taking an “indefinite” leave of absence. Jim France is taking over.

Brian's actions were detrimental to NASCAR, I expect some serious fines and be docked "owners" points!

If any other CEO, from any other company had done this, they would have already been fired.

Bummed I miss the road race and Chase's win. Good for him!
