NASCAR Sprint Cup Round 7: Texas

Well lets hope a Hendricks car dont win - be good to see a lesser team notch up a win, Gannassi perhaps? McMurray has been good & is due...

Conneticut Senator Christopher Murphy wanted to ban the showing of the race and actually wrote a nice cute little letter to Mr Murdoch about it.

Murdoch probably cast it aside to his junk folder but now Senator Murphy is getting lambasted by Facebook and Email posts from NASCAR fans and Texans in general. More people are going to watch this race because of this whole Gossage NRA Murphy debacle now.

I guess Senator Murphy and all the good folks in Washington are going to boycott the Coca Cola 600 for promoting childhood obesity.

I'd sooner do that actually because Coke is manky.

All that said boycottin' stuff just ain't my style.

TMS: Terrible Motor Speedway

Looking at the empty seats tonight makes me once again think that SMI is in huge trouble. Except for Las Vegas, New Hampshire and the Bristol Night race attendance at their races has crashed with no signs of improving and due to their high . ISC was able to fill Phoenix for what was a near-sellout, almost fill Martinsville for one of the best crowds there in years, get the best crowd since 2004/2005 at Auto Club, and despite slightly lower Daytona 500 attendance was able to make that up in increased corporate sponsorship. ISC has the advantage of more races, more exciting tracks, and smaller capacities.

SMI meanwhile is stuck with these massive superspeedways that simply have outdone their time. The Backstretch tonight was at most 20% full, and what's even more telling is that the ''Speedway Club'' seats in Turn 1 were almost totally 100% bare. 180,000 people aren't going to show up to watch boring racing like tonight at tracks like Texas, Charlotte, and Atlanta like they once had.


Bring on Kansas I say, and after that my favourite track in NASCAR Richmond.

Well Toyota's dominated that race with Kyle Busch & Martin Truex Jnr finishing 1-2... Not a bad race behind the top 2, plenty of cautions - frustrated for my man Ambrose who had a top 10 run before his incident with Gilliland, dunno what he broke to lose 2 laps by brushing the wall

Good drive by Almirola

Jimmie Johnson - 269
Brad Keselowski - 260
Kyle Busch - 251
Greg Biffle - 239

Kasey Kahne - 232
Clint Bowyer - 208
Joey Logano - 207
Paul Menard - 206
Matt Kenseth - 204
Kevin Harick - 192

I am no fan of Edwards and Roush, but I have to give them credit for a well earned third place finish after overcoming quite a few hurdles along the way.

Racing wasn't that great, some silly debris cautions as standard and Capt Snothead sweeps the weekend. Now why is it again the stands aren't that full and I am losing interest?

Best thing I saw was that the track and/or the car was making drivers actually drive. Lots of sideways cars and sawing at the wheel, but that didn't result in a whole lot of close racing.

Two words: Five Time

Fans got replaced by bare aluminum bleachers about halfway through Johnson's third consecutive Championship, and until he is out of the Championship picture, that is likely to remain the case. I can't quite put my finger on why, but fans don't like what seems to be favoritism towards the 48 team by the officials. Convenient yellows, minimal penalties for repeated rules infractions and the like have resulted in fans leaving the once thriving sport.
