Well NASCAR out did themselves on stupid yesterday I think. Grim looking obviously about to rain and did so single digit minutes from the off with obvious results.

Last time I recollect such a dumb start decision was F1 about 20 years ago on a totally soaked Spa that led to a massive shunt. At least those guys had rain tyres!

It's something with Loudon and management of both series and track. Even Indy had problems with the track way back when. And NASCAR has had a few rounds of stupid at the track recently

Looking forward to the Glen this weekend, been starved of racing for a couple of weeks plus I love this track.

Instinct says it's Chase's race to lose, but Larson and his crew seem to be performing at a higher level than the other Hendrick teams.

Happy for Chastain that he's confirmed for next year, I think most drivers need a few seasons in Cup before they come good... I don't see him as the next Jeff Gordon but I reckon he's capable of a good solid career.

Older Busch at 23XI or the retirement home do we think?

Sad news, Bob Jenkins has passed away due to brain cancer.

Source: https://www.nascar.com/news-media/20...ster-obituary/

I pretty much grew up listening to him calling races on ABC and ESPN. Really good, in my opinion, at his job and he also had some great reactions to action happening at the track. Some of my favorites:

Lake Speed flips at Daytona in 1989:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9kasK10gRM

Davey Allison flips at Pocono in 1992:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pYxb5eJiBU

(Both clips are also an example of how much better the broadcasts sounded back in the day, when you could actually hear the cars for real. These days the engine sounds are turned down way too much. IMO, of course.)

Cancer sucks.

Great video with some of the best calls by Bob Jenkins:

https://youtu.be/rNjI_uY86QE

Mainly NASCAR, but some IndyCar. Sort of fitting, I guess, given the NASCAR/IndyCar double-header at the IMS road course coming up this weekend.

I like the classic Underbird white and orange but black works too. I'll try to follow some if Chase is still towards the front at the end....

Good job Nascar, FCKD up the race and half the field with the curbing. Cars RIPPED the curb up at 5 and half the field done with 5 to go

I'll amend that to screw you and the drivers for not staying ON the course. Constant cutting the corner and the inside curb and the corner cutting curb came up. Bryon has the bottom half of his car ripped off. Looks like oil and water made the corner slick.

No NBC, Indy cars go AROUND that curb not inside the curb off track. Slow shots and guys are inside with all 4 and younger Busch sister broke it last lap completely straight through

What a glorious sh*tshow lol.

I'd just remove the curb completely for the final laps.

They aren't using that curb as designed all day so might as well.

They already removed the outside curbs there because they can't stay within the bounds of the track. So remove instead of telling the drivers that's NOT THE FING TRACK aholes. Looks like they have pulled it, watch the straight line now and guys NAILING the sleeping policeman square to the corner.

The 74 fans who would attend love that idea. It was over of the worst rated races of the year on the oval.
