Nice.

Win for the 43 last week, win for Bubba this week. Cool.

Missed it with all the football. I’ll try and find highlights.

So 43, then 45... so if we follow a numerical pattern then Wrecky Spinhouse next week.

And if that happens I'm getting me a #49 car for the week after

Well I liked Childress's watch gag.

Gonna be interesting to see if this more mature Busch is going to be permanent or if he'll become the angry teenager when things aren't going right.

This race is carnage. Tyres failing on multiple cars, power steering problems for multiple cars. Not even halfway and it feels like a race of survival.

Well happy to see Chris Buescher collect the win, tyre gamble worked.

Can't believe KFB lost another engine - what the heck are Toyota up to? I mean, I can't imagine driver error 2 weeks out of 3 for such an experienced hand.

Still hate this playoff crap, it's garbage. Go back to proper season amassed points like every other form of motor racing I can think of.

It feels like teams are messing with parts or otherwise trying to out think the car. Action Express helped with development of many of them and testing without problems and it's been generally the same cars over and over with problems and whinging. I understand car builders can't help but tinker but it seems they don't know what they are doing when they do

And Toyota has done something or down the wrong path, something is missing

Yeah, Chevy has hands down been the best so far this year, multiple drivers, multiple teams. Ford has generally been a bit off on the pace. Toyota are just terribly inconsistent, you can see pace, then it all goes to heck or a rubber band snaps. Ho hum!

Just read that Alex Bowman's concussion is keeping him out this weekend and Cody Ware's foot injury from Texas is ruling him out too.

So that's 3 Cup regulars crocked due to this car... am I being harsh?

Nope, there's a clear issue with the new car. Which is a shame, since I really like it and the racing it has produced. But it's obvious NASCAR has made it too much like a tank, much like vintage racing at Indianapolis where the belief was that a strong, sturdy car was the way to go when in reality it meant the driver took the brunt of the energy during crashes.

Yeah, glad I'm not alone in my thoughts.

In my opinion it needs to crumple up more to dissipate the energy, that way the drivers body doesn't take so much of a hit.

Rumour is that Noah Gragson is in the #48 for Vegas with the Dinger in the #16.

Get well soon Alex, Kurt and Cody.

Kurt Busch announced today that he'll miss the rest of the 2022 Cup Series season and will enter semi-retirement in 2023 and only run a partial schedule.

It's a bummer he wasn't allowed to take that decision on his own terms. All due to a hit that looked like nothing - and that's with the SAFER barrier.

I also just read that Bowman will miss at least another three races due to lingering concussion symptoms. Not good.

I sure hope NASCAR is taking a long, hard look at this.

They'd never admit it in a million years, but it's quite obvious the NBC crew is reacting more simply because it's Bubba Wallace. Of course the retaliation was a bad idea at those speeds, but I can guarantee you that the NBC crew hadn't put a spotlight on it and the following shove the way they did if it had been two white guys going at it.
