Man, just when it looked like it would tighten up.

Personally, I think the past twoTelledega races have just pointed out a massive flaw on the COT (other than that the racing sucks with them). When the car goes directly backwards at high speed, the wing allows the rear of the car to lift. This wreck started just like the Edwards wreck in that the back of the car got lifted. Of course Edwards car hit another one just right while in that position to give it a boost up into the fence and Newman just flipped. That was crazy seeing that and the Martin roll over.

I wonder if they can make the wing attachment loose at the back and on a pivot at the front so it is normally held down by the air, but when the car goes backwards it will flip back and form a vertical or even backwards surface to give downforce? Even if it just tore off, it would be better than what is happening.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

Congratulations to Kurt Busch on his win at Texas Motor Speedway

Jimmie Johnson was involved in a early crash which resulted in his finishing 38th and tightening the NASCAP CUP Race up considerably. Johnson now leads Mark Martin by 73 points with just 2 races remaining

Congratulations to Jimmie Johnson on his win at Phoenix International Speedway

Johnson has increased his lead in the Chase to 108 points and only needs to finish 25th or better next week in order to claim his 4th Championship

I hereby guarantee a Hendrick car will win the championship. ;-)

Seriously, is Jimmie Johnson even human?

Nascar will have to hope that BK is on Jimmie's rear bumper next year in as many races as possible. That may stop him from winning his fifth championship and the ratings from dropping even further.

Who the heck is BK? I don't think Brad Keslowski is any kind of threat to be the next NASCAR champion.

Now if you had said Junior, Tony, Juan Pablo, Kyle B., or Danica, then I would agree. Except I don't think Junior can win anything. Even with a Hendrick car under him, he has done nothing in two years. He's too busy being "the most popular driver" to actually concentrate on driving.

Well, it is not Johnsons fault that NASCAR ratings are down. IT is NASCAR and the economy.

I bet if the races were the least bit interesting and Johnson was still winning they would have tons more interest. Say take the entire setup from the mid to late nineties and have Johnson be going for his 4th championship and it would be ridiculous.

The COT and all the rest of the stupid rules from NASCAR which have only caused homogenization of the cars and drivers have to go.

I don't think the NASCAR season being divided up between 4 television partners helps with ratings either.

+1

Some of the announcers on some of those networks are lame. Can't wait to get DW back. I even sorta miss ole Digger, but I hope they produce some new episodes.

Neither do I but he likes to spin anyone within reach. Maybe BK and JJ will be a new rivalry. :lol:

Jimmie won the pole easily.

Here is a wild prediction: Jimmie will lead the most laps and win at Homestead.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz man this is boring.

The other teams should be ashamed that the 48 is slaughtering them. The 5 and 24 have all the 48 info and still can't touch him.

This chase will lose NASCAR a lot of fans for next year.

YES !
FOX (depends on your local), TNT, ESPN, and ABC (again, your local) all do NASCAR in HD.

In Addition, Speed is also available in HD with the Classic 200 package.
You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...

Tonights Nationwide race was a perfect example of why NASCAR should abandon the COT.

Excellent and entertaining racing with the "old" car.

What was up with Tony and Juan Pablo? That was the most entertaining part of the race. I didn't catch any interviews, but I bet Tony had a mouthful since he has no owner to placate any more. What can NASCAR do to him now, suspend him for the offseason?

WEll, I guess they could suspend him for Daytona if they really wanted to, or just put him on double secret probabtion.

Congrats to JJ for historically winning the most historic race in NASCAR history. (anyone who has seen the stupid ABC/ESPN commercials leading up to this week will know what I am saying here, historically speaking ;) I can't beleive they let that one out.)
