Good move Nascar

Nascar finally figured out what to do with the boring races oil the track down with 2 laps to go and you will get a great finish

I agree as well. Brad should have won it. He sure has developed into quite a driver. Would have liked to have seen that American flag flying from his car again.

I saw Kyle motion a punch towards a reporter as he got into a golf cart. He's a sore looser and a poor sportsman. If I was his sponsor, I would think twice about how he represents a sport that they support. Montoya is another one I wouldn't want behind me. I saw him take out his own teammate on the last lap to win a road race. In a recent TransAm race, the other drivers commented that he better not try his usual stuff, or...

Well they have to do something... NASCAR (although they won't admit it) is losing it's fan base, the races for the most part are boring and the cars all look like the lumps of metal and fiberglass they are.Trying to make for closer racing has taken the "stock" out of stock car.

There should have been a caution. However, it was fun to watch. Maybe they should oil the track at the beginning of the race.

Go Kyle, Jr., Kurt, and Brad (in that order) Yep, I do like to watch the Busch brats, love 'em or hate 'em they add excitement. Jr. is just a nice guy, and Brad is a talented and calculating driver.

BK teammates Landon Cassill and Travis Kvapil featured the pictures of the missing and presumed abducted Iowa cousins who have now been missing one month on their cars during Nascar. I could not imagine the pain and uncertainty the parents are going through no matter who they are or their past.

Looks like Jimmy Johnson can join that same club (sore Loser) after last Sunday's race.

NASCAR screwed up the finsh of that race, usually a hot dog wrapper causes a caution and this time the cars were sliding all over the place and they chose to end it that way. I hate when races are won by something other than a drivers talent, and racing in oil isn't a talent its just plain luck how it ends up.

The commentary after the race said that no one could see the tell-tale black marks of oil.

ole 48 was sure upset...GOOD!! His arrogant smug smiles prior to all interviews really show he thinks he is above the rest. Granted he is a 5 timer...I won't take that from him....but he doesn't need to be so smug about it. He needs some acting classes as well...he looks SO out of place in every commercial he has done.

MIS had more folks in the stands than the past few races looked to have.

I agree NASCAR while still fun, is loosing its fans....pricing, silly looking cars, inconsistent rules based on who is involved etc etc.

Bristol will prove interesting...I just hope Bruton did the right thing and has made the track "fun" like it used to be.
