Not sure why I decided to stay up to watch the race from Michigan, because it certainly wasn't worth it, but here we are...

Anyway, nice to see Bowyer pick up his second win of the year. Also, it was pretty cool seeing them enter turn one going 220 mph - that's pretty dang quick!

Apparently NASCAR will apply the All-Star package on two other tracks later in the year. Looking forward to seeing how it plays out.

I do not see anything good coming from applying the "all-star" package to any other track. Another in the long line of gimmicks that is killing stock car racing!


Happy for Bowyer, but the race, itself left allot to be desired!

While I agree that in a perfect world there would be no need for such a package, but at this point I'm prepared to take whatever in order to make the racing closer. Because it hasn't exactly set the world on fire so far this year.

Thankfully aero won't make that much of a difference at Sonoma. Looking forward to seeing some right turns.

Me too... adds a welcome element of variety: and the odd road course racer to liven things up 😀

Well, Y'all enjoy it. I DO NOT like road-racing, so I won't be watching this Sunday. I have to buy a "Bluetooth device", since the "hands free" law goes into effect, here in Georgia on 1 July. Sunday afternoon sounds like the time to go look for one!

R.Lee,this may be one of 2 races I watch this year but the stages kill the strategy on the courses for me.

*I'm still okay with this kind of stuff...3 wheeling, banging off curbs and slinging a 3400 pound stockcar slideways out of each corner...


Good luck on the hands free deal. My cars are old so I'm going with earbuds.

Got to admit the first time I saw a NASCAR non-oval race I did a double take; at the time I had no idea NASCAR ran on anything other than ovals!

Rusty memory of it; definitely was Busch series, think it might have been in Mexico (but can't remember sadly - or when for that matter) and Boris Said was the stand out driver by a country mile.

Sound about right or am I mixing things up totally?!

Funny, I'm just the opposite. This, Watkins Glen, whatever they're doing for the fall race at Charlotte and ims are the only races that I won't be watching this year. I just cannot get into this, it is totally foreign to me. Guess that is one of those "too each his own" kind of things.

I am going to look at Wally World. A guy where I work got one there, for about $40.00 Bucks, said it works good. Guess we'll see. Same here, I drive a 2010 Toyoda Tundra, that was a couple of years before Blue Tooth became standard on cars and trucks.

Not sure if you got it right or not. My memory isn't the best anymore either. I do remember Boris Said being announced as a ringer for the road-course races, but I didn't watch them. I do remember him driving in an occasional Cup and Busch (Xfinity now) oval race for a couple of years. As I said, I just cannot get into road-racing, it does nothing for me. I just skip them and start watching again when they go back to ovals.

Pretty close. Boris won a race at the Circuit Giles Villeneuve in Montreal but it wasn't by a country mile. It may have been a runaway for him until a late caution. Thought he won more than 1 Busch race but nope!

Max Papis, Robby Gordon, Jacques Villeneuve, Colin Braun, Ron Fellows Patrick Carpentier, Marcos Ambrose, Tony Ave....field was stacked with road racers and what a finish!!

Zaxbys car!!!

I just heard Mike Joy, Darrell Waltrip and Jeff Gordon talk about the World Cup. If you're hearing something odd, it's hell freezing over

It's this new sporting event so they have to promote it to make sure it takes off. It will be a struggle but think it might survive
