“Smoke was very ‘measured’”...

LOL, yeah, I thought he sounded a bit uncharacteristically restrained. I thought NASCAR wanted the drivers to “be themselves” this year. “NASCAR is doing a good job...”????? C’mon, Smoke, tell us what you REALLY think!

How about a procession through the streets and finish the race at Indianapolis Raceway Park (or whatever they are calling it now)?

When ESPN does a race it usually ends up streaming on nascar.com.

He threw a ball at a seagull and got ‘im. Said, “I thought they were faster.” They tried to have him charged with animal cruelty.

A “measured” Tony. I was thinking the same thing! He doesn’t have to beat on Goodyear today, he’s not been shy to do so in the past and how could he not help but feel that those statements he made earlier in the season are being vindicated today, heh. Buuuut....if he’s in the lead coming down to the wire and his tire blows up, watch out!

The front three cars should just line up three abreast and drive that way at about 60mph for the rest of the race...send a message to Nutscar to stuff it!

“I think The Man put the word out.....”no GY bashing” “

No question. They were being very careful in qualifying and practice as well. Nobody would say a bad word about Goodyear.

Even before the race, NASCAR said, and I quote "The track is very abrasive because we don't run on it very often -- we don't test here. Goodyear's doing the best they can [but] it's a situation we do see probably every time that we come here."

When you have NASCAR saying "Goodyear is doing the best they can" on NASCAR.com, it's pretty clear that NASCAR has made up their minds and the drivers and crews don't know squat.

Well...duh. If they know they're going to run into this problem every time they're there, wouldn't it make sense to TEST there???? Maybe...just maybe...they could come up with a better product.

Good comment. I don't think it ever will be again because of the Car Of Tomorrow. It is just a truck compared to the old cars. It can't handle these turns.
