Last year's Dover spring race was incredible because it had actually good hard racing for the lead through the entire back half of the race. It's a shame that's such an outlier.

That was legitimately one of the best races of the last 10 years

i know this won't make many people around here too sad but:

losing stewart, biffle, and edwards in one year removes 96 cup wins, 706 top 10s, and 50 poles from the field. meanwhile, the "young guns" replacing them, like ty dillon, chris buescher, and daniel suarez have managed a combined 7 wins in 252 xfinity starts...

im holding out hope for Erik Jones, though

It's hard to take much stock in Xfinity wins when Busch/Keselowski/Logano etc have won like 80% of them in that timeframe.

Jones will definitely be championship-caliber fairly quickly I think. Suarez will be decent by virtue of his equipment alone and I think he has enough talent to back it up. Buescher has the talent and I really hope he makes the most of JTG equipment and can dip out on his Roush contract.

Does anyone here collect race programs? Been unpacking some old poo poo from my parents house and learned I've got a few Brickyard ones and a handful of CART ones from the late 90s. Would rather sell them to a goon than deal with eBay.

So, is there going to be someone else in the 16 car for the rest of the year, or is this probably more likely Roush failing to get sponsors and telling Biffle to go be a fall guy?

I asked in IRC for a year between 1979 and 97 and L_Harrison chose 1982.

The 1982 Busch Clash is on right here, right now: https://cytu.be/r/SASCARWinterHeat

So now you can get in the clash just by replacing someone that "qualified"? Next year, well this charter qualified last year so in goes SRA.

I mean, I'd give a poo poo if they just picked someone randomly and gave them a spot, but if NASCAR is gonna push the "team sport" thing on us, they kinda have to let a team that qualified based on the last year's performance in if the driver suddenly becomes unavailable.

NASCAR doesn't care either, which is why Daytona 500 Polesitter is an eligibility criteria for the race.

...or maybe they do and their apathy lies in the fact they don't care how obvious The Danica Patrick Rule is at this point.

The Clash should go back to two 10 lap segments with an inversion at halfway. With the racing we're seeing right now it'd be insane.
