Pretty much, these last two wrecks have decimated the field. I think Sadler got through without major damage as well but I'd count him as one of the scrubs in the back.

Well, sitting in a cloud of firework and wreck smoke agitated by humidity and mostly stagnant air was different.


It's kind of interesting (and never dawned on me until now) that there's so much going on at the track that it's easy to miss stuff until you get the chance to get caught up. I was actually getting updates in IRC during the red in part because I'd taken my headset off and missed that they'd penalized all those car for coming down and passing the leader.

Also, Regan Smith and his spotter were both commenting on all the "pushing" guys were getting away with. Apparently Logano and Dillon did it all the way down the backstretch early in the going.

Other thoughts- I listened to NBC for a while during the race. Rick Allen's overexcitement is somewhat grating to me and I think that's why I wasn't looking forward to him in this package.

Joy was saying earlier this week that there's still going to be a role for Larry where he'll play into their broadcasts greatly next year. Interesting to see what that involves.

And I never thought that this:

...would hold true as much as it did. Once I realized that Scott was the leader and that the 33 was about the only one to make it back around clean from the wreck, I shook my head and laughed.

It was pretty blatantly obvious that Logano was doing it towards the end of the race as well. I love rules that are very selectively enforced!

The Speedway didn't swap any flags out on Friday. Stats aren't in for Saturday activity.

News 13, which is an Orlando-based Bright House Networks-only news channel, interviewed fans about the issue. One of them camped in the infield said he wouldn't be coming back as long as the anti-Confederate policies were in place. I talked to one of the "gypsies" at the Daytona Flea Market who had come from South Carolina to sell stuff. She's talked to several people who think the biggest backlash might be at Darlington.

So, yeah. This is going well.

I approve of Mike Joy. He's a Class-A troll. If Jeff had even replaced just DW, the Waltrip situation is solved. I think it's the interaction between DW and Mikey (as well as DW by himself) that is the issue here.
