I think he has.

And this was a PERFECT example of how awesome the new point system is - last year Jr. would have conceded being a lap short and let BK go by and be content with a "good points day" finishing a couple seconds behind. Because of the point system, there was no reason not to go for it; even if he ran out a full lap short and finished 20th, it almost certainly wouldn't have made a difference in the Chase standings

Granted it is raining there, but NASCAR needs to take note about the crowd at Bristol. Once one of the hottest tickets in sports, now it looks like a Busch race. Rain isn't keep those stands from filling up, it's the product on the track.

it's also in the upper 30's and a winter storm advisory.....they shouldn't run these races this early in the season in areas weather weather can be a problem.

Yep this is on NASCAR because they are awful at scheduling. Attendance was already gonna be lower because of the cold, the rain only made it worse.

I think they need to address the scheduling issue. Maybe even shorten the season.

I also think they should have an extra point at the end of the race. Once regulation is completed they should line the field up and give them an optional pit stop. Then have a 3 lap shootout for an extra 5 points toward the chase. Or the car that wins the most number of "extra point" shootouts gets a spot in the chase.

I would want the contract for hauling wrecked cars off the track if they did that.

This race is ridiculous. They can't even go 20 laps without half of the field getting flat tires. And NASCAR tried to blame this on the teams after the same problem kept happening in practice.

That would not be good for Darlington.

Anyone going to The Lady in Black tonight or tomorrow? I was going to go tonight (I have a track meet in Columbia all day tomorrow) but everyone I asked said no and the one guy who said yeah just backed out. Guess I'll be watching on TV along with the USC game.

So how about Chase Elliott? I thought that maybe Rick signed him to a development contract just because of his last name. I was wrong. The kid can drive the wheels off a race car. He has won the last two races; Texas by out-driving Harvick and Kyle Busch, and then won at Darlington by running over Matt Kenseth and Elliott Sadler on the GWC finish (this on probably the hardest track on the circuit, where he had never driven before). He's been running second behind Harvick most of the night tonight.

This kid is the real deal.

Bill Elliott was my dad's favorite driver when I was growing up so I'm loving this. It's super easy for me to pull for him because of that. I also think it's really cool that the Dawsonville Pool Room sounds the siren when he wins, just like his father.

Anyone else embarrsed by the state of the sport? Im very saddened by what NASCAR has become. It runs much deeper for me. Than just a sport. For real nascar was part of my life. My grandfather (moms side) was a nascar sportsman champion in the 60s. Raced with Ralph Earnhardt. Richard petty at columbia speedway. All the greats. Won a race upside down on his roof. The trophy had the car upside down.


Dale Earnhardt as a kid hit my grandpa upside the head with a pepsi bottle for wrecking his dad out.

So its in my blood. I raced street stock at sumter speedway. Just hate to see what nascae is. All the no personality drivers. All the races are 1 by 1 for most the race. No sense of danger now. All the cars look the same. I miss those 85 monte carlo's. Best car to ever race in nascar. More wins then any other car. I miss all the good tracks. Hate those western cookie cutter tracks.

Ugh
