  1. Why do the drivers all think that low downforce is the way to go? The stats for this season so far show that the quality passes are way down from three years ago. I can’t understand how, if my car isn’t handling the way that I want, that I’m supposed to want to go down into a corner side by side with someone. If more downforce means making it easier to get a car to a driver’s liking, wouldn’t it increase the competition and the number of possible winners in a race instead of the same five guys like it’s been this year? I just don’t understand.

  2. Debating the 3 PM start times on Yahoo….nobody east of the Mississippi likes it…neither do I….Sunday dinner is what is important to me and others…..one commenter had a very valid point…..televising on FS1 and NBCSN is a big reason for the ratings decline.

      1. Nobody there is cheering Hamlin either.

        He tried to wreck Byron 3 times.

        I wished that Sadler would have bumped Hamlin and spun him out when he had the chance!

        1. I hope that Bryon remembers this shit and the next time it comes down to this that he puts a bumper into Hamlin good!

      2. Can’t watch this shit anymore. Between the Cup guys in the kiddie pool and the terrible FoxWalcrap Brothers it just isn’t worth it.
