Someone was having the time of their life at the speedway this afternoon it sounded like. I was jealous.

eff Richard Petty and eff Richard Childress, dumb rough ridin' rednecks won't rough ridin' win anything anyway.

Petty and his flag waiving bullshit, is a hypocrite anyway with his Chinese owned primary sponsor.

The primary sponsor for Richard Petty Racing is Smithfield Foods, a subsidiary of a Chinese corporation called WH Group.

yes!  I played the crap outta a NASCAR game on my PS. If you continually restart the race over and over, eventually everyone would just drive around the track slow as crap.
Another one had a cheat that made your car turn indestructible. So i would just sit in the middle of the track and let cars hit and flip over me.

I don't think there have been any good NASCAR games for a long time (haven't played video games in years, so could be wrong). Thought about getting into iRacing (for paved and dirt racing) on PC, but appears it would cost way too much money for a competitive set up.

It's stunning to me that for as long as they've been doing this that fox is still as shot as they are covering these races. It's amazing how they just neglect storylines throughout the races, it's absolutely the fault of Mike Joy and Darryl Waltrip but they need a producer or something to get their crap straight.

I like Fox's graphics package.

I find myself rooting for Blaney and Elliot now.

Yeah, the graphics are fine although their sidebar makes no sense, we can't tell who is in what place beyond the top 10.

It's exactly why I posted that. It was the first time I heard him talk and I was unimpressed. I also will never ever ever roll with Richard Perry.

I've followed him for awhile and think he's a pretty likeable guy. Him and Blaney are bros. Have always liked Ryan and his family (Ryan's his dad and uncle are big dirt track guys, and his uncle was a stud basketball player at WVU) so would hear about him often.

I'm warming up to some of these younger dudes. Still team Larson, but Blaney and Bubba are good by me and I found myself pulling for them Sunday. Not so much Jones, Bowman, kid in the 24 car, etc., yet.

So glad I only watched for about 10 minutes.

Plate racing may simply be the stupidest thing in all of the top racing divisions.

The teams have to spend a ton to create a plate program.   If they're so afraid of the cars on the big tracks, then put a smaller motor in for those races.

Can be hard to watch for extended periods, but it's Daytona and I'm ok with it a few races a year. I rarely watch the 1.5 mile tri-ovals but will sometimes watch the Kansas races. Bristol, Martinsville, Darlington, Dover, New Hamp, and Richmond are more my style.

I think the Bristol night race and Darlington are the best two races of the year.

Man, last years champion and possibly this years as well (TBD obvi), can't even get enough sponsorship $$ to continue and is done after this year.

NASCAR is in serious trouble until they completely revamp the cars and bring some stock aspects back into stock car racing to lower costs.

The Car of Tomorrow sucks, the race stages suck, the season is too long (sucks), frequent changes to the points and Chase format suck, awesome drivers retiring and getting replaced with Kroger brand drivers sucks.  Other than that NASCAR is fine.

I don't think Jimmie Johnson has a 2019 and beyond sponsor either.

Next year there will be multiple dirt track races that have a better field of drivers than any NASCAR race.
