Tyler Reddick wins Xfinity Series opener at Daytona in overtime finish

Tyler Reddick beat teammate Elliott Sadler in a photo finish on the fifth overtime attempt.

"Just my humble opinion "

It is time to either limit the # of "overtime" re-starts (2-3 seems good), or END IT ALTOGETHER ! (I'd prefer that!)

All these overtime attempts usually lead to more damaged race cars, and INCREASES the chances of injuries to the drivers , and possibly the crew members , AND ... the fans !
" Just my humble opinion ? "

We shall see

What does Stewart-Ward case judge's decision mean for racing in general?

{ Very well written article.  I'm curious to see how this affects all the other racetracks around the country too.

 Drivers with multiple Monster Energy Series titles

{ I hate this era of something akin to "political correctness" !

 To this date, there has only been 0 ! NONE ! No one who has ever won a Monster Energy Cup title !

 All of the championships came under the Grand National , Winston Cup, Nextel, and Sprint Cup banners !

 I wish the world would stop being so "politically correct" !

 Remember the sports history, and use the titles that the various drivers won  under !

Bowyer wants more short tracks in NASCAR
NASCAR racer Clint Bowyer pleads for more short tracks in the league and reveals which track he wants to win the most

{  I agree with Clint, and I'm sure we're not alone.

 I think the best way to bring in more fans, young, and old , is short tracks.

Personal note.

Starting tomorrow, 9/26/17, I will do my darndest to limit, or even avoid posting any political articles relating to NASCAR !

I'm working this website, just for you folks to read the news, and have some fun doing it.

The politically charged furor of the last few days, has made me sick, and angry.

I'm already sick enough, and angry enough from other personal / health issues . So I don't need anymore of this.

I cannot quarantee that I will completely avoid that garbage. But I will , at least, tone it down.

Sincerely

Joe

 But I've been wrong before !

(10/21/17 ---update / belated update. Kasey Kahne is going to drive the 95 car for LFR, not the 10 for SHR as my cracked crystal ball had thought !!!)

Kyle Busch calls NASCAR’s restrictions on Cup drivers in other series ‘frustrating’
Kyle Busch tells SiriusXM NASCAR Radio that should NASCAR ever bar him from running any Truck races, 'you will no longer see Kyle Busch Motorsports.'

{ I like this new rule. It should help some of the other drivers in the Xfinity , and Truck series , get some more exposure to the fans, sponsors, and Tv. So I think this rule is necessary.

 But that's "just my humble opinion"

 Or is it just my opinion ?

 Joe}

(6/24/17)

My motto always is , and always will be  "SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL TRACK !"

Doesn't matter if it's a big track, small track, mid-sized track, Dirt, Paved, Concrete ,  Oval, road course, drag strip , indoor / outdoor ,or hill climb. Any day of the week. Anywhere in NJ., Pa., De., NY., Ca., Fl., or anywhere across the USA ! North America, and the world !

Without your support. These tracks  won't survive, and grow.

We simply have lost way to many of these tracks in the past, and continue to lose them.

So grab your seat cushions. Your coolers. Your relatives and friends , and go to your fan friendly tracks, and enjoy the races !

I am certain that this is not "Just my humble opinion"

 Kevin Harvick: Current state of Truck Series schedule ‘makes me mad’

Kevin Harvick, a 14-time Truck winner, believes the Truck Series schedule needs to be tailored to reach grassroots fans.

http://nascar.nbcsports.com/2017/05/24/kevin-harvick-current-state-of-truck-series-schedule-makes-me-mad/ 

{ I agree with Kevin .

 When the Truck Series started ,there was a lot more fan .  family friendly, short tracks on that schedule.

 It's time to go back to that kind of schedule.

" Just my humble opinion" : the new NASCAR competition rules changes ."

Update ... It is my understanding now ,  that "The Chase" , while somewhat altered (added to ), will remain this year.

I still remain adamant on my opinions of Brian France. Mike Helton, and etc.,etc., etc. ! So I will not retract my statement of 1/25/16.

I'm just stating what I now, know.

I made a mistake. My apologies .

Joe

" Just my humble opinion" : the new NASCAR competition rules changes .

While I think the changes should be okay . I do dread what the 2 additional cautions per race is likely to bring . Remember ? "Cautions breed cautions"

Where I disagree very strongly is the scrapping of " The Chase "

That format, with the elimination races , over the last few years , was just fine.

It should've been LEFT IN TACT !!!!

Also, I have lowered my personal view of Brian France, Mike Helton, and all of the drivers (current, and retired) and announcers who constantly kiss NASCAR's butts, saying, basically " This is great !"

NASCAR needs a spurt of new superstars to make racing fun


{ On a personal note. I think NASCAR already has them.  Elliott, Larson, the Dillon brothers, Blaney, Byron, Custer , etc. etc. Just to name a few. AND ... don't forget : Logano, Keselowski, and Kyle Busch, are all 30 or younger ,and winning races & titles .

The future of NASCAR is looking pretty good to me.

{ I'm thinking the same thing. Perhaps it is best that Dale Jr. sit out the rest of this season .Get back to good health, and come back in time for speedweeks , in February , at Daytona, 2017.
 Health is always more important than driving a race car !

I have come to the conclusion that NBC stands for : Nothing But Commercials !
  Did they actually concentrate on the Sprint Cup  race @ Daytona ?  Especially over the last 20-30 laps .
 It didn't seem that way
I came home from a great night of racing @ Wall Stadium Speedway , and turned on the Pepsi 400 @ Daytona, on NBC.

Instead , I got inundated by commercials .

That makes me angry !

Why doe's NASCAR CONSTANTLY ALLOW THIS ?

Bernie Ecclestone says drivers were wrong to raise objections about F1's governance because they are selfish and only care about "taking money out of the sport".
