There's a Confederate flag with a bootleg #3 which says "In Memory" in the parking lot of one of the hotels near the speedway. Redneck as gently caress.

If you watch @NASCAR then you are supporting a gay parade. Time to #BoycottNascar & the offensive Brian France #tcot

Well, that sure is a convincing argument against watching NASCAR, right there, I tell ya what. Good job, Twitter man.

ďOn my dadís truck, he had this sticker with a rebel flag that said ĎAmerican by birth, Southern by the grace of God.í At the time, we had this housekeeper named Ann, and she was the most awesome lady. She was an African-American lady, and she asked my stepmother about my dadís rebel flag on the back of his truck.

ďAnd so the next thing we know my dadís out there with a knife and a razor blade, and heís cutting the rebel flag out of the sticker. He didnít want to offend anybody or make anybody mad in that manner. It was so sweet. It was a little kind-hearted thing. She just thought that was the best. Sheís like, ĎThatís just so awesome that you would do that.í He had a good heart, a big heart.Ē



Seriously. Like nearly every other southern "icon" has called that flag bullshit.

It's Central Florida in summer, it looks like that literally every afternoon down there. Race might get delayed a bit depending on how long the storms hang around over the speedway, but they'll fizzle out for sure once it gets dark.

Steering wheels? Where we're going we don't need steering wheels.

I think that a Sunday night race after a long holiday weekend is stupid to begin with but this is really getting stupid. I know we live in a dvr world, and I'll be watching it via dvr, but 11:35pm start time for one of the better races of the season is just plain lovely for anybody not able to watch it later and who has to return to reality tomorrow making the option of staying up until 4am a bad plan

Its time to bring up my scheduling idea since at after 10pm we are still waiting for the race to start.

You see. Having lived in Florida for roughly 25 years, I learned something.

It rains.

In July.

Late in the afternoon/evening if you are on the east coast.

Move the 400 to the start of the season. The week after the Super Bowl. Move Indy to the weekend of the 4th, light the track, run it on Saturday. Run the 500 as the last race, with a week break for qualifying, Shootout, and speed weeks. Ditch 2nd race at most tracks, add back Rockingham and Milwaukee/more short tracks, Road America or CotA in the chase... Ditch the cuts, win and in chase format, points for the title. All tracks with lights have Saturday night races.

For racing quality, wider and softer tires, lighter car, no splitter and spoiler, lose that loving dumb as hell tapered spacer.

Fire Darrel Waltrip into the sun. Hang Michael Waltrip from the new stands of Daytona.





HIRE ME NASCAR


Edit: Alternate option for 4th of July weekend.... Eldora.

Eddie D'Hondt (Gordon spotter) has been told that the Air Titan drivers estimate a Midnight-12:30am start based on what they need to do.

NBC's out of rain delay fluff. Second time I've seen this Kyle Busch bit. Also, why did they repave the section past the road course exit? In that wreck, Kyle tore through quite a bit of pavement before he got to the grass and the grass could've ripped the splitter off to kill his momentum had there been extra.

I'm just tired and it may not make sense, but it crossed my mind.
