I was at that Dega race. We had to run because the beers being thrown from the upper deck were like that scene from 300 where the arrows blotted out the sun. And some were falling short.

The real fun is going to be 25 races from now when McDowell is 24th in points but going to the playoffs and either Brad or Joey didn't get a win and had a marginal season and will miss the playoffs by like 3 points.

As I mentioned in Discord, 25 races from now will see us do the exact same thing over again in the hopes of the same outcome!

raring to post



Even though I've watched god knows how many NASCAR races, all I know about McDowell is that he ran in ChampCar briefly (cool!), ran in the Daytona 24 a bunch (cool!), is a big time religious nut (extremely not cool imo, your mileage may vary), he somehow still has a cup ride despite seemingly being notably bad, and basically every other driver in the field doesnt like him for one reason or other.

At least it took Daytona away from the big teams and thats very funny.

McDowell actually replaced RHR at Rocketsports. He did...poorly from what I remember but he only drove in maybe 3 races in 2005.

If you were wondering about how that new NASCAR sitcom is on Netflix, it all comes down to how you feel about Kevin James. Either it's a giant piece of poo poo built around an unfunny star so loving lazy his character has the same name, or it's an unfunny low effort sitcom with a couple of driver cameos and the actually funny Gary Anthony Williams.

Just close your eyes and imagine it's Uncle Ruckus playing their chief mechanic, and it's 20% funnier

Also it's hilarious that they cast a cheap Allison Brie lookalike

I'll watch it anyway for mindless "entertainment" and to see how far off it is from reality, which will, obviously, be a lot.

Everyone needs a dumb dumb show to watch once in a while.

if someone on brad or joey or whoever's level can't make it past 15th in points they probably don't deserve to be contending for a championship anyway

hell i'd say if you can't make it up to 1st in points you probably don't deserve a championship but what do i know

Yeah for sure, if you're fighting for the last spot there is a very good chance even if you get it you're probably going out really quickly but I can just imagine the anger when you see McDowell pass you by on the leaderboard because he was in the right place at the right time at Daytona and you've been struggling all year but still miles better than that team. Plus I'd bet at this point there have to be contract bonus for making the chase and/or each round of the chase that are lucrative enough even if you aren't going to sniff a championship.

you know maybe Brad should've thought about that before wrecking his team mate going into 3

I was going to suggest that McDowell could conceivably win his way into the second round of the chase if the Roval were in the first round, but it's not.

Had that been the case, he also conceivably could have been a threat at Talladega, which could have propelled him into the third round.

Now I'm bummed that chaos won't reign.
