I think a simple rule to follow for Richmond is to always be the last person to pit. Seems every race people end up multiple laps down when they pit early and a caution comes out. Thanks Ryan Newman.

I wonder how long Rosch will stick with the Rocket Man? The last time Ryan tasted victory lane was 2017! Then before that it was 2013! He had a string of one victory per year before that, off and on. His best year was his 8 wins in 2003, which was very impressive. Too bad he wasn't able to keep that going.

I would like to see him in the winners circle again, but father time may have something to say about that.

He isn't the problem. Roush is the problem. They haven't won a non-plate race since 2014


Now, Newman isn't what he once was.. He's 43 now.. But if you put him on a solid team, he's much better than what he's showing now.


His heyday was with Penske, no question. He didn't do that great with SHR, but SHR wasn't exactly SHR at that time. Then several years with Childress.. He's been on.. Not great teams since 2013.

Happened to catch the end of the ARCA race yesterday. Horrible crash that involved a car becoming fully in flames. Always need to be reminded that this stuff is dangerous.

How in the world did Larson's crew forget the radiator protector?

Who was it a few years ago that left the protector in the cold air box to keep water out after a rain delay?


Someone had a job to do.. I'll bet 5 people saw and noticed it.. But none of them had it on their checklist.

That's what the announcers said.

Yeah, he was at like 315 after 1 lap. Larry Mac (And everyone else) was saying it had to be instrumentation that there was no way it could get that hot that fast, and the fact it wasn't pushing water out. But, it apparently had already pushed ALL the water out. Wasn't another.. What? 2 or 3 laps before he was blown up?

Busch wins the Buschy McBusch Race 500. It's RIGGED!


On a sad note.. Eric McClure passed away. He was.. A pretty horrible driver. But seemingly a pretty good person who had some serious health issues and concussion issues.
