I am all for adding Road Courses and I think the dirt track race will definitely be a plus rather than watching high speed drafting on a huge oval track.

My thoughts like others are that the schedule is much too long. It needs to be shortened. A shortened schedule benefits the sponsors, networks and the team owners as it would save some incredible money and perhaps help the sport become viable with the current financial bleeding and loss of fans.

The other big problem is now more tracks that were once NASCAR premier attractions are now being added to the abandoned list.

Again I applaud the changes but NASCAR has very little time left to remain relevant and some bigger changes though painful need to be made.

Has Justin Haley won a race that didn't have weird circumstances?

Gragson wrecked Briscoe about 3 times over the last 3 laps and Haley came from about 7th to win.

Kid is a hell of a plate racer. Gotta give him that. Always finds himself in the position to win.

11 gets the win after passing 2 cars while below the yellow lines? Then the 21 gets a penalty? Looks like no championship for the 11. Karma wins every time.

He was forced below the yellow line to avoid getting wrecked and passed while coming back up.

Lets be real... it is the 11, Hamlins destiny to win the championship this year! He is the latest SUPERSTAR of NASCAR destined for greatness dont you know? Be prepared to hear about that time he raced with a bad knee , ankle , foot or what ever it was ... add -nauseum. He is putting together a SUPERSTAR 1 car team with the greatest of all SUPERSTARS in the world of sports for the biggest SUPERSTAR driver of 2020. It is going to be SUPER-FRAGILISTIC for NASCAR and all those who have suffered from all those years of NASCAR being a white southern redneck sport....

He was destined to win it LAST year. JD Gibbs passing away in January.. That being JD's team and JD having picked Hamlin and JD's name being on the car all year. That was the 'destiny' year.

Good to see NASCAR rescinded Chase's penalty.

Glad to see more roadcourses in 2021. Too bad they can't bring back Riverside.

World of Outlaws did a dirt Bristol, but it's my understanding that it did too much damage to the pavement. I wonder if something is different now. Different sealer? Different method of adding/removing the dirt?

Really sucks that NBC went to local news before 2nd overtime at 'Dega. Since I DVR the race, I missed the ending.
