Parrott getting whacked for drugs gives some pause. I currently have Eric on the team and don’t know if this is cause for a switch or not.

Give me anyone except JJ for the title. Nascar needs p-a-r-i-t-y very badly. Very badly. The domination of the mega-corporate teams weaken the weekly competition and hence the sport.

Once Nascar, years ago, went to the same-body cars for all makes, they were in trouble with a lot of fans. A Plymouth used to look different from a Ford from a Chevy from a Dodge.....

I saw Richard Petty race several times. The last time was at the Daytona 500 some time in the early/mid 1980’s. He hit the wall coming out of turn 2 and broke his shoulder. The hit was so hard I could feel it in my chest.

I’m sure you already knew this.

Ty Dillon is actually the grandson of NASCAR Hall of Famer and team owner Richard Childress, who owns Richard Childress Racing. Harvick, who was racing for a different team in the Camping World Truck Series, races for RCR in the Sprint Cup. He’s leaving to go to Stewart-Haas racing at the end of the year. Harvick is being replaced by Austin Dillon, Ty’s older brother, and Ty is moving up to replace Austin.

Hurray for Jeff Gordon. Long overdue.

Dozed through most of the race but did hear an action by a CC I’m wondering about. Did Jeff’s CC, Alan Gustafson, made an unsportsman like decision, at least according to a NASCAR ruling in the last race prior to the chase?

Twas obvious that you didn’t want to get slotted on the outside for a restart. Jeff coulda come out #2 on a pit stop but Alan had him hold until Montoya (I think) went by which Jeff acknowledged by saying “good job, good job” or something like that. Couldn’t that be construed as an action detrimental to racing - like repeated pitting, letting someone pass or spinning out your car?? Picky I know but he deliberately choose NOT to do his best and come out #2....

Congrats to BSR for reassuming the coveted lead for the FR Championship. I know the pressure must be great when you start considering all the booty for winning..

Didja know that if Matt & Jimmy are tied after the Homestead race Matt gets the championship since he has 7 wins vs Jimmy’s 5?
