Last weekend's 400 counted 51 laps under yellow. FIFTY-ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NASCAR's new green initiative I guess. ---> Maximize caution laps to cut down carbondioxide emissions.


Maybe I'm used to that watch BTCC where the ballast system makes it impossible to win every race ! Was it really that many? :shock: I watch the races whilst doing something else so maybe I don't notice it as much haha

Yea, too many to count, but racing reference says 51 run under yellow.

That almost rivals the famous V8Thunder Gateway incident :lmao:

I ragequit that day :rofl:

I think we also banned Gateway permanently from V8Thunder competition :lol:

Ran the race without a single break lol

Could've finished Top 10, but the yellow came out when I pitted under green with around 130 to go, just like at Darlington :roll:

Pit crew was flawless though, no one got fired.

I have actually thought about maybe looking for a GTR2 league to potentially run in.

Not sure I'm into team racing though, because I'd probabyl wreck the car :lmao:

A full distance cup series would be awesome, maybe we'll do that some day when I stumble over a suitcase of cash, cause you'd likely need a purse money incentive to fill the grid.

I just watched Kansas and man. NASCAR has really turned into a giant fraud.
You really feel like a moron for watching. You feel sorry for guys who earn millions racing autos.
Rick Allen, Jeff Burton and Steve Retard are such shitty commentators, they make it all even worse.
All you hear all race is play off, points and cut off line. Its so insane, I just wanna strangle them till they shut the f*ck up.
Back in Winston Cup, they hardly talked about points and stuff at all during the races, now it is all you hear about anymore. Do they not realize that there is no excitment in it anymore?
No one cares who wins a title thats worth nothing, because there is no fair contest.


And then you hear things like Kenseth not having a ride. I mean, come the f*ck on. If a driver like Kenseth does not get a ride, you can put a lid on this entire fraud circus.

The traditional points standings should speak for themselves:

Ahh what the hell, I guess I should not be such a whiner all the time. I mean, look at this car.
They could have done a lot worse. And then there are the bright sides of NASCAR like for example, at least they're still using awesome equipment such as murderous engines.
And most tracks are pretty awesome. It's actually to NASCAR's credit that they do not temper with the schedule too much all the time. Sure, they locked into contracts, but still.
Wish they had one or two more flatter track though like the old Homestead or Las Vegas, which were massively underrated imo and got bulldozed for no real good reason.
I'll still send out a letter or two before the year is over. Maybe NASCAR is still willing to make some tweaks here and there.

Nah, I disagree. What's everybody's deal and what was Hamlin's deal not defending himself post race? I would have dumped that little shit Chase Faggiot just like that.
He had the chance to clear him and run away with it, but the corner prior he ran Hamlin down and cut him off, so he had it coming in my opinion. Whatever I would've done to him if I was Hamlin when he ran into his car after the checkers would have ended my career.
Bunch of effin amateurs in the booth I tell ya.

Race was awesome though untill the overtime, then things went a little too far.
But up till then, it was really good, almost Winston Cup good.

Chase moved Kes a few laps before, just he didn't wreck him, this is what NASCAR wants, drama over Playoff places, they won't do anything (or maybe a financial fine for the bad comment after), it wasn't anything Chase wouldn't have done had the roles been reversed.
