(Started a flat track thread for future posts, my apologies NASCAR)

Looks like we might have to wait till July 2017 before
NBCSN will air the flat track races. I ran through
my dvr schedule and did not see it listed for this Thurs.
Keep us posted if you see any different. Here is a link I found
explaining the airing schedule.

Congrats to Larson on the Fontana win. Kid's on a roll.

Hi R.Lee, How are you? What are you up to?
I have not watched a lap of cup this year, and can't say I really miss it.
We have started getting the Xfinity and Trucks on free to air over here. I watched the Atlanta, Phoenix and Texas Xfinity races, they were OK but nothing remarkable. The truck race was good at Martinsville and Chase Elliot put on a display.
Watching highlights means the stages don't really affect ones viewing.
I have absolutely no idea what a driver has to do anymore to win a championship, there appears to be another new fangled system again. I tried reading the rules but my eyes glazed over and I began drooling. It seems there are now two point systems that I can't get my head around and I will just have to watch each race for what it is.
When the commentators start saying "PLAYOFF" every ninth word I shall probably stop watching.
We get the Bristol Xfinity race next Tuesday, so I will be looking forward to that.
Cheers #4.

I'm doing fairly well. About the only thing I've been up to is work. Not much else. Had a quiet Easter, hope yours was well. I've watched most of the races this year, but am not at all impressed with these stage races. They are nothing more than glorified heat races to me. Like you, I have no clue as to what a driver has to do to win a championship. This whole "playoff", chase, etc., is a joke. Auto racing is not a stick and ball sport. I wish that the powers that be would stop trying to make it into one! They just need to get back to a points system, get out of the way and let them race! Hopefully, Bristol won't be plagued with rain this weekend, but unfortunately, that is what they are forecasting. Glad that you are getting those races for free now! Not much else going on here. Have a Great day. I'll talk to you later.

Then don't watch the championship, just watch the races.

I don't. I just watch the races. If anything, I pull for the drivers that do not make the joke, called the chase, to win the races, instead of those that make the chase joke!

Well, they postponed Bristol, well before the green flag was scheduled to drop! Just too much rain coming down and it wasn't going to let up! Could be a problem again for tomorrow as well. This day SUCKED, big time! Ruined my day. It has been raining here all day along, as well. Not complaining about that, we need the rain, but it was too wet and raining to go anywhere or do anything. I had planned to watch the race today, but because it was rained out, it mean no racing for me to watch today. I wound up going back to bed, as there was nothing else to watch and nothing else to do! Not much more to day, wasted day and it just SUCKED!

I picked Keso and Truex in my group A for yahoo. Truex is on the bench and dominating the race. Keso was my choice and goes behind the wall. I suck at fantasy sports.....

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. wins Talladega! Who saw that coming? I know he had been running well, but just didn't think he break through this soon, this season. Happy for him! Congratulations Ricky!

I actually tuned in this evening for a little bit and saw one of the nastiest accidents I've seen in some time. Logano had a failure going into 1 and collected Danica into the fence. Aric Almirola had no traction and barreled into Joey at such a high rate of speed the rear of the car was lifted far into the air. AA was pulled from the car after the roof was removed and certainly hoping he'll be okay. He was conscious when removed....

AA suffered a compression fracture to a vertebrate, but has been released from the hospital. Video of the incident in article below.

That was a bad one. One of the worst I've seen in awhile. Thank God it wasn't worse. Danica is lucky that she didn't get severly burned, that car looked like it took the worst of it. Aric is very fortunate that his injuries were not a whole lot worse. The with the speed and the angle that he hit at, and with the height that the back of the car came off or the ground, I feared paralysis of lower extremities. Nothing that Logano could do, he was just along for the ride. Fortunately, the cars are far safer today. Shudder to think what might have happened had they been driving pre-COT cars. Aric will have a long and painful recovery, similar to what Tony Stewart went through, but he should make a full recovery. Prayers for him.

Danica's impact was one that ended careers 20 years ago.

Can't stand Joey, but his comments of concern for AA during the race prior to anything else speak loudly compared to Patrick's.

Same here, not a Logano fan, but he was visually shook up, it was obvious that it affected him badly. Maybe something like this is what it will take to straighten him out. He had no problem wrecking people and then being a jerk about it. Didn't help when NASCAR gave him a free pass, then SLAMED Kenseth, several years ago. He seemed to think he was immune to any kind of punishment and caused a lot more wrecks. Perhaps this one finally put the seriousness into the reality of accidents can do into him! Yes, you nailed it, that kind of accident did end careers on more than one occasion!

I've been watching racing all day but I had to cut it out for family and packing for a trip.

I see Chase was taken out by not fault of his own so I don't how much time I'll be watching the last race on the single greatest day in motor racing.

Edit: tuning in to see 58 laps to go in stage 2. How many laps to finish? They won't show that so they can keep me hooked? I think I see through their ploy now!

Edit x2. Lightning in the area. Red Flag.
