  1. WOW.

    There are a shitload of empty seats there today!

    It’s the worst that I have EVER seen it there!

    I’d say that it’s only a third of capacity or less?

    They have all of the seats in turn #1 covered up to a third back to the start finish line!


    1. That’s the seats in turn 2!
      They have half of them covered up!
      The rest of the grandstand seats are only a quarter to a third full!

      Looks like we’re not the only ones who have jumped ship?


  2. Thanks to the rain delay, they switched TV coverage over to FS1, which I don’t have.
    Just my luck?
    Thanks for nothing again, NA$CAR and Fox!

    1. NASCAR penalizes Kevin Harvick for illegal Las Vegas race-winning car
      5 days ago – NASCAR penalizes Kevin Harvick for illegal Vegas-winning car. … The Las Vegas win stands, but Harvick lost the seven playoff points that went with it, while Childers was fined $50,000 and car chief Robert Smith was suspended for two races.

    2. Yet he gets to keep the win but gets no extra points for it.
      NA$CAR won’t call it an “encumbered” win because the owners cried to make them remove that term.


    3. Looks like “Happy” won’t be very happy about that?
      If he were driving a Turdota instead, NA$CAR probably wouldn’t have done or said shit about it!


  4. UMM…. If memory serves….. Freaky-Fast Harvick is pretty good at Phoenix which happens to be this coming weekend….

    Still say Xfinity is lots more fun to watch…. if only the Cup guys would stop stinking up the party, including Larson…. its all about the $$ for these Cup guys, not the learning curve B/S the booth keeps trying to sell us fans…

    But too no one here wants to chat (post) during the Xfinity Race….I don’t get that. O’Well……

    1. If others are like myself, we don’t have FS1 or FS2, NBCSN etc. to watch the Xifinity races on?
      So not many will be able to post about them since we can’t watch them anymore?

      Plus I was working during the last one and I did not renew Raceview, so I couldn’t follow it. I do have satellite radio still, but it won’t work inside of the concrete building.


      1. Thanks RULES, I appreciate your feedback. Just gets to me at times…. Others comment on the race so I assumed they watched yet no one post… makes me think I’m the problem ..
        Now, today RobBob post new instructions for future post that I dont get at all ??? is he changing things???
        no biggie……. thanks


  5. Krylie took the lead in the truck race and I turned it off….Harvick had a 3.5 second lead and I flipped over to golf and watched my other favorite Phil in the whole world WIN in a playoff over one of the best young’uns …first win in 4 years !!! Best golf since the 1986 Masters !!

    Who will fine NASCAR for all the faulty guns ? Since Vegas was boring also maybe it is not just me ?

  6. What a boring assed race!

    Harvick lead about every lap in the race and the HMS cars all sucked!

    Larson finished 3rd for Chevy.


  7. Alex Bowman sure isn’t doing very well either?

    Junior has been vindicated in my opinion.

    JJ last car on the lead lap now.

    Our only Chevy hope right now is Larson.


    1. The lower rear height took away a lot of downforce and the taller spoiler didn’t make up for it and it made these cars get aero loose around other cars getting close to the rear of car ahead of them.


  8. Now that NA$CRAP issues all of the air guns, just look at how many are having a lot of trouble out of them? NA$CRAP has a reverse Midas touch! Everything that they touch turns to shit!

    JJ is now down 2 laps!


  9. well it looks like anther sub par showing for hms this weekend again . i see the rcr amd ecr chevys are ding better then hms i guess chevy wants them to have all the right stuff and left hms out to dry fords have got what they need , harvick put jimmy down a lap in 40 laps of the race . with a long way to go .. shammmmee


  10. NA$CAR must be paying all of the celebritards to show up and pretend/act like they like NA$CAR racing?

    When Mikey interviewed them, they were totally lost, didn’t know what to say at all.

    The only one in the bunch that actually likes and knows NA$CAR was Carrot Top.

    The actors were completely clueless.
