    Only watched monster race. Seemed like a clean win for 18.
    Was kind of hoping truex was going to pull it off. I want to see him get the lock for the playoffs sooner than later this year.

    Simple solution, back it into your driveway.

    I wouldn’t mind ripping through Nahant proper and pissing off the rich folk with that nasty V8

    Nascar announced a lot of changes to the schedule for the 2020 season.
    Here are the highlights:
    The Brickyard (Indy) race will be the first week of July, moving the traditional Firecracker 400 Daytona night race to August.
    The season will end with the championship race in Phoenix, not Homestead.
    Martinsville installed lights and will have their first night race on Mothers Day.
    And the strangest change (IMHO) is the double-header weekend at Pocono.
    That's right, two Cup series races in late June, one on Saturday and another on Sunday.

    It's an interesting change they made , maybe a field trip to Pocono is in order.
    Not a fan of the Phoenix track and that being the championship race.
    We will have to see how it all works out.

    I think Rip Van Winkle started the Coca Cola 600 and just woke up to wave the checkered flag.

    Thought the 22 was going to hunt him down. At least make it interesting.

    Thus concludes another motorsports Christmas.
    All 3 races had their moments.

    Lots of empty seats at Pocono.
    I was there in June of 2000, it was worth going once, but it's really a horrible place to see a race.
    The sight lines suck, you can't see shit except them exiting turn 1 and entering turn 3.
    This is a much better race on TV, and the traffic getting in and out of there is one of the worst sh*tshows in Nascar, worse than Martinsville, Dover or NHMS.

    I agree with that, Pocono has the single longest straightaway in Nascar.
    It's one of the few paved places, other than airport runways, where you can really see what your street machine will do.

    Damn..Even when I was big time into NASCAR,sitting in front of the TV and watching every race start to finish, I hated Pocono with a passion.

    Now they add a double header at Pocono lol

    If anyone is watching the unintended night race in Chicago, number 18 has some issue with smoke in the cockpit. Says could be tire but in the pit no fire or issues and still smoking

    Great overtime finish at Kentucky!
    I can't remember the last time I saw the Busch brothers fighting it out for the win, and they were beatin' and bangin' on each other pretty good too. This time little brother didn't take home the hardware.

    Loudon better deliver.

    We'll see how the stands are tomorrow with the cup race. Can only imagine how hot the stands are.

    I'll watch both in the comfort of AC and a couch

    We'll it is the Xfinity series. Plus it's nuclear hot on those stands I'd bet.

    My daffy ass will wave to you as I'm the only clown in the stands tomorrow. Until heat stroke gets me....[wave][laugh]

    Just opened a ice cold beer. Used a nice clean bathroom and it’s 75 and dry in the house.

    I’ll bet those aluminum seats could cook an egg today.
