    Toyota also has the top team. Look at their driver line up at Gibbs, and they have full sponsorship. Government motors has hendrick as their top team

    It’s a head injury. You can look fine with a brain injury. There most likely was nothing else to be gained in the hospital as they stated the bleeding was controlled. Just cause he’s out of the hospital doesn’t mean he’s fine. It’s still possible this was career ending

    The fans literally did ask for it. They had the field separated years ago and fans demanded we bring back pack racing. That’s why now in the xfinity series they can only lock on to each other for a short period of time

    20 years ago they would just ride the last 10 laps under yellow. Now we red flag it and have OT

    I don’t care for plate racing and it does wreck more cars. With that said you mentioned the faster tracks with no plates. We have to consider up until last year you had to lift at those faster large tracks. So they have had slower corner speeds. Last year they had the speeds restricted at those tracks to tighten the fields. Also, the big faster tracks have led to injuries as well. Hamlin and armirola each broke their backs. so while yes, plate racing causes more cars to crash it doesn’t necessarily cause more injuries opposed to the other tracks larger then 1.5 miles I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw tandem racing make a return

    You’re forgetting the safety of the fans if these cars are out there unrestricted

    The stages at least have drastically improved plate racing. Now it almost seems like the worst part of a plate race is the last 10 laps cause it takes an hour

    You remember the last time they didn’t restrict the Horsepower at these tracks? They didn’t just start restricting the power for the fun of it. Now imagine them doing it today with engineers building these cars. The track would need a 30 foot wall

    A couple of things: Brian France is no longer ceo so I doubt he’s loving it. They also had the second closest 500 finish in history so I’m sure they’d rather have that as the story taking the plates off will only make it more dangerous there’s no reason to bash Hamlin and team. There was no reason for them to suspect severe injury and they halted the celebration another thing of note, everyone is complaining they should reconfigure the track and calling it hypocritical that nascar won’t change the track. Where is all this complaining every summer to completely change sprint cars or do away with them?

    with those track conditions they should’ve just left it pavement
  11. Exactly. What this is is a great business decision
  12. Average. The thing is he’s only 12. So even if it takes him 4 years to win he just won a modified race at 16 and would suddenly be the next big thing. So although he wasn’t great in sportsman it’s a smart move in that aspect
  13. His age doesn’t matter from a competitive standpoint. Biologically he should be better then most of his competitors. From a maturity standpoint I don’t how you could say he’s less mature then anyone out there just cause his age. However if I own a track, no way I want that liability. God forbid something happens national media attention is now on the track asking how they could allow this and so on
  14. 2nd. Better then anyone thought. I expected Debennidetto to place 2nd in the voting
  15. These responses are mind blowing 🤯😢
  16. Or now you just hear about it more
  17. I’m 28 and don’t recall that ever not being the case
  18. Good move for them. Toyota is willing to put more in then the other manufacturers are and the results show
  19. Nascar penalized bubba for bringing out a yellow. Which begs the question when will DIRT and the local tracks finally step up. We see it at local tracks sometimes multiple times in a single races
  20. Blaney, Jones, Larson, Wallace, dibenetteto, Bell, reddick, Custer, chastain, Elliott just to name a few
  21. What?? Most talented from our corner of the country? Might be one of the most talented from Canada by default. He’s also no where close to one of the most talented drivers to enter nascar recently. Truck series maybe. Also, how is nascar trying to slow him down? Did they hit a button and make him screw up at Pocono? The guys winning and going to compete for a championship and you still think NASCAR is out to get him lol
  22. I don’t think you have to park guys when they purposely bring out a yellow. I think you could just do something like, if you bring out the yellow in a single car incident and don’t take assistance to the pits you get docked a lap. It’s still less then you’d lose under green
  23. I think it was meant for the person you had replied to saying he only won at Malta
  24. I have, NASCAR has been fantastic this year. I think what a lot of people here seem to be overlooking is that the trucks are 3rd tier. Most major sports don’t have that many levels down get any broadcast time at all. Yes they botched the ending but don’t expect post race race coverage when they run over into another live event
