I'm rooting for more first-season-wins to see what bizarre rules NASCAR changes if a winner doesn't make the playoffs.

downstairs: I'm rooting for more first-season-wins to see what bizarre rules NASCAR changes if a winner doesn't make the playoffs.


I'm still not a fan of the entire playoff system, but if they wanted to make it fair and the "regular season" compelling - it should be a simple win-and-you're-in with no exceptions. if you don't win a race - you're not in the playoffs. if there are only five winners in the first 26 races - then there are only five playoff drivers. if there are 26 winners - then there are 26. hell - if one driver wins the first 26 races of the season - then the playoff field is one driver. if a driver like Justin Haley from a few years back gets a fluke rain out win - well he's in.

and while they're at it - end the dumb "one race" championship and go back to the total points at the end of the 10 races. and for the love of baby Jesus - stop with the stage racing. it's not interesting and having teams know when the caution is coming just ruins any kind of strategy.

anyway - there's my mid season rant. have a feeling today is going to be a shiatshow if they even get to run depending on the weather.

5pm Eastern is stupid.  Some night races are great, but this is just a dumb time.

No pre-race? I'm perfectly fine with that!

We don't get to see the invocation or the anthem? What are we supposed to complain about before the actual race starts? I can't gripe about a command that involves the Boys & Girls Clubs!

I bet NBC'S coverage is better than the tragedy that was FOX's coverage this year. Heck, NBC's coverage of the little SRX series was better than what FOX was doing this year.

Is it a this week thing because of track and field that preceeded? If it's a permanent thing oooooh boy can't wait for the reaction from the God-and-country folks!

You're right, point still stands that an event with probably 1 broadcast truck managed to have better coverage than whatever the heck happened to FOX this year, it's like they forgot everything they learned in the last 2 decades of covering racing.

Moving it back to 3:30 was bad enough.

I have that Pacedog on standby.  Yes, I know I could've used it on Fox, but USA is the true home of what MeekMahan calls sports entertainment.

I'd be upset about the move to USA but I'm actually booked for the next 4 weekends anyways with camping and concerts. The 2 in August on USA I'll just have to stream on Twitch.

I take it the irritation over "the switch to USA" is that it's going to be several in a row so soon after taking over from FOX?

At least we don't get to see ads for false network programming.

Unfortunately, I live in PA, and my NBC affiliate is owned by Sinclair.  I'll gladly take the USA Network races.

If you have a tv antennae like me FOX is better than USA.

My antenna can pick up PBS and, um, that's it.  Supposedly, it could pick up NBC, since they have a translator even closer than the PBS tower, but it's low power.  I can, however, pick up WDVE, which is roughly 80 miles away.
