Yuck.. I didn't enjoy that race very much yesterday. Don't have a problem with Byron winning or anything, but.. It just wasn't a great race. Think I spent most of the time fast forwarding through it and there weren't really any changes each time I stopped.

If you had really had some cautions that got different pit strategies going.. Like what happened in the Xfinity race.. I think it might have been a lot better.

Agreed. Pretty boring.

Kyle Busch, after a sub par 2020 for him, is not getting 2021 started in very good shape.

Point of view.



He's been running well. Just doesn't have the finishes. Now, yesterday.. He finished 10th, which was about right. Didn't run very well.


But, he was top 10 at least at Daytona, both courses, when he was taken out.

Not finishing where you run is far easier to fix than not running where you finish... I think that makes sense?

It's weird how you can just suddenly lose your groove. Kyle has on top of the racing world and we all expected him to blow away just about every NASCAR record there was. I certainly think he still can though.

Once he figures it out, he will be back on a tear I'm sure.

Probably, but that new crew chief takes some time to develop.

I ordered my COTA tickets today. I've seen damn near everything race there, including Robbie Gordon's off road trucks, but NASCAR will be a blast when they hit turn 12.

Now that was a good race! Hendrick chevys are off to a great start. Our house became divided when Larson put Harvick (my wifes driver) a lap down, but I just might stay tuned in for awhile at least to see that Bristol dirt race. By the way anybody see where the new Superstar toyota team finished ?

Yes, Vegas was a very entertaining race, at least until the 5 took over towards the end and paced the field. I was very happy to see Kyle Larson win. Redemption for Kyle.

The start of the 2021 season has certainly been fun and unpredictable. Hope it keeps up!

Let what go ? What does that have to do with my question. It took about 5 years for Danicas run to end as a Superstar of NASCAR, despite NEVER winning a race... Lets just be real. And why wouldnt Wallace congratulate him ? Thought it was a class act what Keslowski did and said.

Yeah.. The last.. 40 laps or so were something of a snoozer.. But it was very good prior to that.


The next 6 races should be good. Phoenix, Atlanta's a question mark, Dirt Bristol, Martinsville, Richmond and Talladega.


But I just noticed.. There's no title sponsor yet for the fall Phoenix race.. The championship race is still titled "Season Finale 500"


Darlington picked up Cook Out to sponsor it again.. That leaves fall Phoneix, Road America and the Indy Road Course with no title sponsors as of now.
