Austin Dillon takes the #3 back to victory lane and gets his first win. Good for him and Mr. Childress.

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.

I'm not a fan of these glorified "heat races". I'd rather see them just run the full race, like they always have in the past. I watched the whole race. I played it smart, since the weather was threatening for the entire day here, after I got home from Church, I took a nap. Got up at 5:00 pm. had a bite to eat then watched the Pre-race show and then into the coverage for the race. Gut told me that there would be a rain delay, that would last around 1 1/2 to two hours and that the race would run long into the evening, early morning and I was right. Had I not taken the nap, I doubt seriously, that I would have made it to the end of the race. It is unfortunate that NASCAR has allowed sponsors and TV networks to dictate race starting times. This is the longest race of the season and it SHOULD NOT be run at night! NO 400, 500 or 600 mile race should be run at night! Fine with short tracks, where they run lap numbers instead of miles and fine for a superspeedway, like Phoenix, where they run 300 some odd miles, instead of 400 to 500 miles. Those races are short enough that baring rain or extended red flags, for accidents, finish at a reasonable time. This race NEEDS to revert back to it's original afternoon starting time!!! Had it started in the afternoon, like it did for most of it' history, it would have been finished, well before the rains/thunderstorms came! PUT THE 600 BACK TO AN AFTERNOON START TIME!

Happy for Austin Dillon getting his first win! He and Johnson gambled and the gamble for him, paid off, it didn't for Johnson! No doubt that Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch (What an childish JERK, his post race interview and microphone drop were inexcusable) were faster and were closing FAST. But Dillon was able to hang on and win. Yeah, bad luck for Chase, he seems to be "snake bitten", just can't catch a break, same with Ryan Blaney. They will both get wins, soon, they just need a change of luck. While I don't care for "fuel mileage" races, this one was interesting, seeing if Dillon could hang on or if the two rocket ships, of Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch would overhaul and pass him in the last lap and a half.

Darrell "Bubba" Wallace, Jr. will make his Cup debut at Pocono this weekend, becoming only the 4th black driver to race in the top series, joining Bill Lester, Wendell Scott and Willy T. Ribbs. He is subbing for the injured Aric Almirolla.

Green flag at 6pm means a possible 11pm finish. Not too bad for Sunday night TV before a holiday, although less favorable for a spectator.

Another young gun gets a win before Chase. That's fine; his day is coming.

Good for Ryan Blaney taking his first win and good for the Wood Brothers. Always neat seeing the 21 in victory lane. I watched a decent bit of this race as I still love Pocono.

JJ lost his brakes going into 1 and had a scary crash / hard hit. Glad he's okay. In the same incident, Jamie Mac got into junk from Jimmie's car and had a hard hit and a fire on the #1 car.

The segments are stupid, but the racing (when left alone) at good tracks is still as good as it gets.

It was a hot day in PA and Bubba Wallace passed out after his first race; not from the heat, but because he was mad. Finishing 26th in his debut.

Yeah, that seems a little convenient. Had that been the case, explain it to the boo birds, not some random camera in a clean environment.

Maybe this same thing has happened to others and DP just gets shade for it.

She makes more money than I do.

Interesting quote from Junior and some criticism finally coming from drivers on debris cautions:
http://www.cbssports.com/general/new...ebris-caution/

Quote:
"I don't know why they've got to throw so many damn debris yellows," Earnhardt said during a postrace Periscope broadcast. "The purpose of having stages was really because the networks want more cautions, more restarts, because people tune in when we have a caution. They tune in for a restart. That's the whole reason why we have the stages to try to create a little more drama, so I don't know why we keep throwing the damn debris yellows and stuff."
TV influencing the cautions??? Well, I never!!

For some reason, I thought I'd enjoy the race today at Sonoma, so I recorded and just finished it. The road course races are so chopped up and confusing with pitstop strategies because of the stages. Still fun to watch stockcars hustle through the esses and bound off curbs, but the actual race product is garbage.

Speaking of garbage, I guess this is the last race people have to deal with FOX for 2017. They have six people in suits covering the race and each is just as annoying as he other. Put more people in the pits and maybe out on the course / track. That's much more informative than listening to Mikey and Chris talk about whose hair has more product in it...

The good news is, it looks as though they have a contract through 2024

Some of it is, at least to me, the FOX guys almost resent the road courses and put zero effort in to the production. The TNT crew was a little better but still missed the leaders often and loved the mid-pack battles that often weren't for position, and of course the Robby Gordon late race charge watch.
