Sad day for NASCAR.
The first fake "debris flag" was predictable because of who had just been lapped.
It's very important to keep that car on the lead lap as long as possible.

Another sad day for NASCAR.

Even Kyle Petty alluded to the fact that the cautions were bogus when he said that the last yellow of the day was really legit, he went on and on about carbon splinters, the car drove itself in and I didn't see anybody looking for carbon fiber splinters.

Mother fuckin NASCAR sure doesn't want Brad K to repeat as champ!Penalties every other week(his truck this week!) and they didn't even mention him on the "notables"finishes on NASCAR run Speed channel.(Danica made it tho!)They looked the other way when notable and past cheaters Knauss and Co. were underweight.DICKS!(okay,I feel better now).

I love Kyle Petty tho,he's not afraid to call it as it is!

Yesterday he was asked if the driver of the #10 car will ever win a NASCAR race. His answer was "no way......never going to happen"

That's telling it like it is alright.

Tim Richmond is my all-time fave racer. Nobody could race a loose car like him, just smokin' the right rear tire! He was the very fastest there was during his time. He went to stock cars after his Dad told him he was going to get killed in open wheelers. He was fast there too.

He owned Pocono. He owned the road courses. He owned all the talent there was.

#25 Folgers forever

I raced Modifieds at Bridgeport in the 80's & 90's and it is a scary fast 5/8 mile track.

Danny Lasosky's time trial lap last night was 16.46 sec. 136.66 MPH
