This sport needs a lot of fixing and one thing is getting some of these guys back in the sport. Thing is, they may be able to make more money going dirt track racing 90 times / year instead...

And welcome (or welcome back) to the NASCAR forum, guy!

It's not Cup but the second best race behind the trucks on the dirt at Eldora, the trucks around Mosport (sorry CTMP) this weekend in FS1.

It's Mosport, brought to us by Hoser Tires. I'd like to watch it, but I didn't even get to the IMSA race at Mosport Life's a B sometimes.

Bill Elliott has an easy answer to the question of why he is competing in an Xfinity Series race at 62 years old.

"Why not do it?" Elliott said.

Apparently it's Chase's part time car and he approached the owners to say why let him run and of course they said sure. Think they said it was the time away and reapplying for his license, no license means rookie. But for all NBC does for Indy and did for F1, they are TERRIBLE at whatever Busch is called this week. The fiance's response to watching was, is that why people like the Camaro now so I guess their stickers worked for her eyes. Was a good race with more than a few road course mistakes, there were a few turn in and late move spins but overall not bad.

The interview with Bill after the race was great, as usual:

"How was it out there today, Bill?"

Bill: " I feel like I hit everything but the lottery."

Gold!!

Oh man. That's losing in this house...

And it was a decent affair at Road America. Brendan Gaughn needs to have his license revoked, but that's nothing new..

Yeah, sadly that race wasn't one of his worst and in most series he'd have been parked years ago.
The truck race was a sh1tshow with moments of lucidity, sadly the last corner was not one of them and teammates committing the ultimate sin.

Nothing much but yes, it's a half mile track, that is something different and it WAS a long standing track from the yester years.

And it's Nashville.

NASCAR needs short tracks and just the discussion is promising.

Also the Indianapolis Raceway Park wants to bring back Nascar, not sure if Xfinity and/or Trucks.
