I know thats a stretch, but it takes away from the importance of winning a race when you take points away. Anyone else notice how Daytona doesn't mean **** anymore? It's a nice race to win for the drivers, but in the big picture of the season it's worthless...both races.
I agree tho, Talledega should be fun. You know Spencer, R.Gordon, Leffler, or any other of the 20 or so scrubs will cause a big one. Although last race at dega didn't have a big one. Damn football...It comes along and I stop watching Nascar. And I'll miss the end of this weeks race because of the late game for Denver...damnit.
You can wear out the recall button on the remote, Sideburn. That's what I do. Commercial on football, back to the race. My family just LOVES it.
I am reading Gordon is the pretty heavy favorite to win this Chase this year....hope that's not a jinx or something!
Oh and Talladega just isn't Talladega without the "big one". Unless of course my boy gets caught up in it.
