That is not. It's nice-looking, but it sucks functionally. I bet it gets changed.

e- We were waxing nostalgic the other night watching the '96 ARCA race from Daytona about how much we enjoyed ESPN's old scoring pylon. If they shrink it to that (Car number, driver name or manufacturer or speed/interval, it'd be awesome, but if it's going to take up a chunk of the screen, I hate it.

I still cant believe that the car that was basically built out of Bondo only lost 2 laps once it got going in an ARCA race at a super speedway with basically no cautions.

F1's works because it's a small field. Indy can get away with it, dunno if they could with the 500, though.

NASCAR would have to do the 10 ten and then scroll the "next 10" among the field throughout the race. It could work, but it wouldn't be the same.

That's what Fox is doing with their new pylon.

Did I see correctly that the margin of victory yesterday was 0.000 seconds and that the race was decided in at least ten-thousandths of a second?

A Good Race. It's crazy how GWC takes what looks like it could be a disastrous spin and winds up making it a good finish after all (SRA yesterday, Gordon going from 30th to 6th at Daytona in 2011). I like some of the wackiness we've gotten out of plate races in recent years, too, like Sadler winding up second after a late penalty and late spin.

Jeff Gluck did a good sitdown with Mike Joy on how he got into broadcasting and this was one of the highlights for me:


I'm curious as to who he's talking about. Ken Squier and Eli Gold were "company men" from MRN, but so were Joy and AB. I remember reading Rick Allen auditioned for it and didn't get it, but he was an outsider.

Seriously, did Kyle Busch get in serous poo poo for reversing on a live track? Did he go back out after that? Surely there was damage to his brakes or suspension.

To be fair, this was all NASCAR's decision.

NASCAR used their discretion to basically only penalize the crew chief for the fuckup. (They have to issue 3 race suspensions per the rulebook for a tire coming off)

The Jackman and tire changer are only suspended from Trucks. They're normally part of Cup crews anyway.

Wilson's death was just inherent to open wheel racing on ovals, it was unfortunate, but not like, totally preventable.

I am pretty far behind on my understanding of the Nascar rules, but why was Allgaier able to restart 4th after running out of gas and having to be pushed to pit road? Just because it was under caution?

Basically. The fact that he was the first and close to pit road after 6 or 7 of the cars behind him ran out of fuel helped as well.
