So what happens if today late in the race,Johnson, or Harvick or Hamlin gets taken out (unintentionally or intentionally) by one of the other not in Chase front runners. Do we see an actual all out brawl on the front stretch?

The race was boring...... When Jarrett said on a TV show early in the morning "as soon as the flag drops Johnson will be ahead on points" I knew who was going to win the race....

Sure enough....

NASCAR needs to make this sport exciting again. I never used to like dirt track but lately I'd rather watch it than a NASCAR race... Don't have to listen to the endless stream of excuses from the drivers that their cars aren't handling right.

Maybe watching NASCAR on TV just isn't your thing. Have you tried golf?

It also sounds like plwhit doesn't comprehend very well how important handling is, even dirt track cars need to handle correctly.

Too many rules! It's getting too much like the IROC races used to be. The 60's & 70's were the last time Stock Car racing was actually FUN to watch.

As far as watching Golf, I can't handle watching that, but it just may be more fun to watch! That or Bowling. Thank God for college football!
