Another hyped nascar gimmick. There are plenty of actual proven dirt tracks that could have been used. But this is nascar.


I agree 100%. This may be fun to watch as an experiment. However, it should be like the All-Star race with no points awarded. If somebody like Chase Briscoe, Bubba Wallace or Austin Dillon wins his way into the Playoffs with this farce, it will merely keep a deserving driver out. It’s bad enough that Michael McDowell is in the playoffs with a fluke win.


We should expect to race on Monday, and wonder if behind the scenes this is Brian’s brain child.


Some of the decisions NA$CAR has made since Brian appeared to have done all the damage he could seem to have Brian’s stamp on them.
