This is interesting, at least Tony is honest and no fine yet. No mention of Vince russo either.

I can't say I necessarily blame him, whenever they do caution for debris, I would like to at least what they're cautioning for, they rarely show it unless it's the aftermath of a crash.

And how could NASCAR not have rules in there for criticism....refreshing, but surprised they dont take care of themselves, like NFL or NBA.

I can totally see where Tony is coming from, but the numbers don't back him up. (I stole this chart from jayski.)

Maybe it just seems like there are more phantom cautions, because Fox doesn't show the debris. They say they "try to find it and show it when they can", but wouldn't the obvious answer be to follow the truck and watch the guy pick up the debris? There are cameras covering every inch of the track, so it doesn't seem too difficult.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

I'm going to reserve judgment until we hear how Thurman Plugg reacts to this.

From what I know of NASCAR (More than most New Yorkers, less than most Carolinians), JJD is right. With roughly 670 cameras in the place, and with the advent of HD. This stuff shouldn't be too hard to see.

hmmm, Jeff Gordon has the pole in Talladega. Should be interesting to see if Gordon can pass Dale Sr. win record in one of the Earnhardt territories. How many beers will be thrown today if Gordon wins?

Wow I predicted it!

That victory lap looked like the end of a '96 Nitro after an nWo schmozz/beatdown finish, with all the beer thrown on the track. Is Gordon hated by NASCAR fans as much as Barry Bonds is by baseball fans?

People have given Paul Menard a lot of crap for buying his ride, but to be 9th in points after five races is nothing to sneeze at. The #26 being out of the top 35 doesn't bother me.
