This was Fox's answer to side-by-side coverage.

I can almost imagine that TNT isn't giving two shiats at this point and will make us all squint, no matter if we have a TV the size of the one installed in Cowboys Stadium or not.

Foaming: Five words: Wall to wall Kyle Petty



Are you not sports entertained?


www.hhweb.com

And its time once again for...


Commercials?  WE DON'T NEED NO STINKING COMMERCIALS!


Your weekly NASFARK checklist! Ever changing and updated on the fly, just like the NASCAR rulebook.


(Created by  DanZero &  bluorangefyre, with contributions from Professor Farksworth, QueenMamaBee, Mzltplx,and a bunch of other Fark racing fans!)

1) Every 25th post is "DANICA," every 500th post is "CHECKERED FLAG!" and every 1,100th post is, "Screw the gredunza, I just did the double!"
2) Somebody asking "ARE YOU NOT SPORTS ENTERTAINED?" before the 10th post
3) Somebody comes in with a humorous "left/right turn/going in circles" comment
4) BOOGITY in some form when race starts
5) Idols/Buddhas/Transformers/Reactors being fired up
6) Complaints about LOLTNT & ESPN race coverage (or if in TNT/ESPN coverage, how bad it is and how we pine for FOX again) ONLY VALID FOR 2014!
7) While we were away!
8) Green flag pit stops
9) The inevitable race commentator foul up
10) Phantom cautions
11) "Austin Dillon driving car number three... the number made famous by the late/great Dale Earnhardt."
12) MLP deployment ONLY in the following instances: sad Rainbow Dash when Princess Crumplefenders (AKA Danica) inevitably wrecks, happy Rainbow Dash if she's running in the top 20, charging Rainbow Dash if she's in the top 10, Nightmare Moon (thanks existing offspring for forcing me to learn that!) if we need some extra mojo to help the idols and Buddhas defeat car #48
13) Complaints and such if Jimmie Johnson wins again and celebrations from his fan(s)
14) Race is official when Kvapil, Reutimann, Wise or Danica bring out the caution (can be more than one)
15) BONUS OFFICIAL RACE: Mikey brings out the yellow
16) Something to do with potato salad and/or sugar free gummi bears
17) SPECIAL BONUS: One of us is actually at the track
18) Something not meant to catch fire does
19) We are reminded about how a track is famous for The Big One/Darlington Stripe/Eating tires/Fuel Mileage races.
20) "Because #3 car"
21) Race is boring... what are you drinking?
22) "Lord baby Jesus, smite Logano's engine!"
23) Somebody asking why they don't run in the rain followed by a quick explaination why its not a good idea
24) Idol collateral damage warning
25) DanZero's commercial/side-by-side recap from last week and running throughout the thread

It's amazing how as the NASCAR season progresses, the coverage gets worse.
And fox is no great shakes to begin with.

If tonight's race ends like last night's race it should be pretty good. I don't like G-W-C finishes typically, but I still don't know how everybody survived to the end last night. 4-wide banging and bashing all the way to the line is pretty hair-raising.

I think that was covered in the update to item #6 when it changed from TNT to LOLTNT.

how screwed up is today's starting grid?
-The top 4 (Gilliland, Sorenson, Cassill, B Labonte) have a combined 491 points. By comparison, Paul Menard has 488.
-The top 3 Toyotas are Kenseth (6th), Whitt (17th) and Vickers (30th)
-RyTru and A-Bow STILL somehow managed to qualify dead last (42nd and 43rd)

I had submitted a headline with the Firecracker 400, but since this one had 2-3 comments once submitted, it got picked up

Good. I have time for a shower.

I went out of town for four days and my hedges tripled in size and weeds sprouted all over my rock beds and stairs. It wasn't extremely hot today but I'm still quite fragrant.

I made a special effort to make sure I watched this race and now it rains!
   I did tons of yard work today and just got in.
 I will hang with it as long as I can fight off the effects of these pain meds.
 * Usually takes 30 minutes to get loopy so have fun kids!

Personally, I'm glad there's a rain delay. Some chuckle fark shot out a transformer in my neighborhood with a mortar last night. Might get power back soon.

"Chuckle fark" is great name of a first album.

What is the latest they have ever started a race at Daytona? I seem to recall the 500 had a "gotta start by" time of 9:00 pm, but that may have been a TV window issue.
