2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

Recommended Posts

Engines have started. Should be back to racing soon. I hope it's not rain shortened but the threat of rain should make for some good racing.

edit: Very good racing so far.

double edit: The commercial breaks every four minutes is more than just a little annoying, though.

Good grief what in the blue hell has kacey kahne ever done to piss off the gods? Every time, every race it's something that he has zero control over.

Happy Junior won and happy with Jeff Gordon's fourth place finish -- glad he had a shot there in the green-white-checker.

Great race, though. After the rain delay, they never went back to the single line racing they started the race with.

Also, I can't believe Austin Dillon got a top 10... involved in that first big wreck and then caused two others.

*long slow clap for Jr*

Eh, I'm not happy Junior won. Sure, it may be "good for the sport", but I think it would've been better had someone like Jeff Gordon won. Even though I really dislike Gordon, I'd have been happier seeing Gordon win then Junior, who I really despise.

NASCAR needs Junior to start winning and stop being just Mr. Popularity. If he can be in the chase until the last race it could be a fun season.

That was an intense race, the last 20 laps, it could've been anyone's race. Junior had the best car, but so did Keselowski, Hamlin, Kenseth, Johnson & Harvick amongst others. The rookie race is going to be rather interesting IMO. However, I'm hoping this is Junior's year, one can dream.

Top 10

1. Earnhardt Jr.

2. Hamlin

3. Keselowski

4. Gordon

5. Johnson

6. Kenseth

7. Stenhouse Jr.

8. Biffle

9. Dillon

10. Mears

I can't to see what happens in Phoenix.

Bumping for Phoenix:

Well we had our first knockout qualifying with a Penske 1-2 with Keselowski & Logano. It's interesting on how they're taking a system that's used & adapting to it. It'll take some getting used to but I think it has potential.

So what happened was cars would go out, run a quick lap, then coast around and cool the engine to pit and get the car worked on for another lap. It made the session kind of dangerous for everyone. When they taked to drvers after the 30 minute session they all said that was the problem. I know F1 has had something happen like this last year where teams found a loophole in the rules. I'm sure it'll be fixed soon.

I like the new qualifying very much, but raysox brings up a good point. Just imagine if this was at Martinsville or a road course? I wouldn't be surprised if NASCAR does step in and try to eliminate that loophole

Am I the only one who thinks they should enforce the out of bounds rule at Phoenix?

Great day all around for guys in Hendrick equipment. Second win in a row for Hendrick Motors as they get 5 of the top 11 spots (Kahne was 11th). Can't wait for Vegas!

Daytona and Talladega are the only two tracks with out of bounds rules.

But it just looks so beyond odd. I know it's cause of the dogleg but still....

Gordon actually used the dogleg to his advantage yesterday. Running 7th with 2 to go, he just divebombed into the dogleg and ended up 5th.

I'm all for using every bit of the race track, except at the superspeedways where it's both outta bounds (given) and could be disastrous considering how slick the apron is.
