I really wish they didn't have the halfway rule, but I guess I understand they don't want to be racing on Tuesday with like 5 people in the stands.

Because #43 car at Daytona thirty years after The King's last win.

Thanks to the race being called for raina couple of wrecks that nearly took out half the field, the winner of the Coke Zero 400 is... this guy

fixed.

wasn't really about the rain

The important thing is that Johnson didn't win

Don't watch racing, but I can't imagine the rain had no hand in causing those wrecks, so there's at least a kernel of truth in the headline.

Aric??!?

He must be some mooslim sent by 0bama to turn North FL trailer trash into some sort of sister-farking militia.

Congratulations, Aric! You're now halfway to matching the win total of NASCAR legend Derrike Cope.

Funnily enough rain played no part in the crashes. Unless you count that everyone was racing hard leading up to the second crash because there was rain approaching and whoever was leading when the rain hit would probably win the race. The first crash came 20 laps in with no rain in the area, involved 16 cars. The second crash came on Lap 98 with rain possibly approaching (Race would not be called until Lap 113) and involved 26 cars some of which were in the first wreck. In all 37 of the 43 starters were involved in at least one of the two wrecks.

I imagine Almirola can at least match the win total of the immortal career of Steve Park.

I'm still disappointed that Crumplefenders didn't win it for the lulz. The good ol' boy head explosions would have been harder to clean up than the track after the Big One.
 
2014-07-06 09:58:10 PM
I think I'm more amazed that Michael McDowell got 7th. I actually thought it was a mistake at first.

Eh, if he's only going to win one race in his career, this is a helluva one race to win.

And I don't blame NASCAR for shutting down the race. The way the rain was coming and going, it could have taken days to end the race if they went the full 400, or it could have been perfect weather in an hour. There was just no telling. And with the lightning that kept coming, it was safer to wrap things up and get the fans out of there rather than keep them hanging.

Drivers in the Chase:

Gordon (1st in points)
Earnhardt Jr. (2nd)
Johnson (3rd)
Keselowski (4th)
Logano (6th)
Edwards (7th)
Kyle Busch (9th)
Harvick (11th)
Hamlin (14th)
Almirola (21st)
Kurt Busch (24th)

Five open spots left; currently they go to:
Kenseth (5th)
Newman (8th)
Menard (10th)
Bowyer (12th)
Dillon (13th)

Basically, with Almirola's win, Greg Biffle (15th) is bumped out of Chase position.

Know how I know you don't watch racing Green track and bad tires cause accidents

Seriously, what's up with those tires?  I get tires good for 70,000 miles at the corner shop and NASCAR can't make it halfway through a 400 mile race?

The red flags gave me the chance to keep up with the Indy race at Pocono today, wasn't super exciting action but seeing a speed record set for a 500mi Indy race was pretty cool. Avg speed of 207mph with speeds topping 220+ on the backstretch.

Thats right haters ol` fireball Montoya wins at Pocono!

At least this time, Almirola was actually driving the winning car.

Looking at that list with Almirola's name above Kurt's just make him look like a bigger douche after his after race interview, where he stated he felt it was his duty to keep guys like Almirola out of the Chase.  Almirola's name being on the list that high, means he his doing just a little better than Kurt.  Shut up Kurt, you can't even fulfill your basic duties.

Possibly because Dillon is so much of a douche that Summer's Eve is in talks to sponsor his car?

fatalvenom is a lot of things, but racist is not one of them.  Drunkard, asshole, dickhead, misogynist... yeah... but not a racist.  All-in-all, he's the type of guy you want to party and watch sports with, just not the type you want to talk politics or take to a formal dinner.

That pretty much sums it up.

wouldn't it be kinda funny if all of Richer Children's Racing made it in on points with none of them getting a win? (if the Chase started tomorrow, this would be the case)
