If you'd have told me at the end of 2012 or in early 2013 that Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer would share the broadcast booth for Fox, I'd have thought you were insane.

Mike Joy is fine, hes been around forever and knows how to call a race and let a situation breathe when necessary. Hes actually been better since DW left.

NBC has too many people talking all the time. Burton and Letarte need to go I think, let it be Allen and Junior and its a solid booth.

This works except Bestwick instead of Allen.

Joy is fine and Bowyer will be ok I think. Gordon is like listening to paint dry.

Oh god yes bring back Bestwick, agreed.

Gordon will be much better with Bowyer. They had some pretty good chemistry during the iRacing phase of this year when Bowyer was on a sim in the studio. Gordon alone with Joy was pretty dry at times.

Reminder that NBC dispatched the finish of Talladega to cable with no warning less than a week ago.

I'd take FOX seven days a week over NBC. I've never seen a play-by-play person flub as many minor details as Rick Allen, yet they keep going with him. For ESPN's flaws, at least they made a change (twice).

I know, and yet I still rate them over Fox. I cant even pin down what it is but their coverage just seems so, so much worse to me and always has. Camera angles, cuts, etc just seem subpar in comparison. NBC coverage sucks with the changes in channels, but I think I'm just used to it at this point since they do it to every drat sport other than NFL and horse abuse.

Edit: that was also the best race of the season in all 3 series.

I've watched more Xfinity than Cup this year. Hopefully the 7th gen car can make cup as exciting as its feeder series.

Suffer not the unclean to live.

Xfinity is way more entertaining than cup, usually. Both series have their dominant drivers this year, with Briscoe/Cindric and Harvick/Hamlin standing out, but the racing itself is just more fun to watch in the lower rank.

Yeah I guess I have to start watching Xfinity as everyone else seems to be suggesting? Normally I'm like way too excited for road course racing but something about this track has a very homemade, backyard, we just made it up and that's what we're going with, vibe. I don't like the track, and that probably clouds my judgement a little bit, but I thought this race was particularly boring. The beginning was interesting with the 13 somehow hitting the setup perfectly and charging to the front and then the wet to slick tire switch out but all that happened so early it just felt like from lap like 50 on you could kind of feel like you knew how it was going to turn out? Maybe I'm crazy but because like 90% of the field had crushed bumpers it seemed like it showcased how unprepared they all were to race in those conditions it was just a sloppy race overall. Combine that with 109 laps I just didn't even care when they got to the last 25 or so laps. Did 109 laps seem like too many to anybody else? When I tuned into the prerace I was thinking in the back of my mind this should be fun, a nice quick 85 laps or so and hopefully most of it will be green. Then I saw 109 laps and honestly by the time they even got to halfway, to me, it felt like any other Kansas 1.5 mile slog race.

To follow up on all the cars with significant damage, I love some rough beat and bang road racing that finishes with cars covered in tape but I'm thinking more like Ambrose and Keselowski at the Glenn for the win not 109 laps of ooops! check up accordion wrecks with a side of slicks on wet pavement loop arounds.
