    Didn't NASCAR use something last week in the Xfinity series that gave Playoff drivers first dibs on stalls based on their qualifying, then the rest of the field picked?

    Why couldn't they have just used that?

    The 18 still had to qualify 2nd for this to work. I don't get all the drama over it. I hope they don't change anything, it's an added benift to qualify good if your pit selection rest on your position.

    I'm sorry but that is bullshit. There is no rule against it that I know of. Every other race the polesitter always takes that #1 pit stall. Just good ol Joe Gibbs pulling more of his bullshit.

    I hope NASCAR could be competent for once and realize that a single deciding championship race is and has always been a dumb idea.

    Tony Stewart was interviewed and said he would have done the same for Harvick if another SHR driver won the pole What is bullshit is consistently blaming JGR and it's lead driver for everything that you personally don't agree with

    Yeah, me too... Imagine it: Joey Logano takes the white flag as the leader, with Truex and Busch close behind. In the last corner, Truex dumps Logano, but because he never races like that, he doesn't know how to do it right and takes himself out as well. End result - Kyle Busch wins. That would be a HUGE disappointment.

    I think I remember some races where the pole sitter had chosen the last pit stall instead of the first.... it doesn't happen a lot but I do think it's crazy especially with how Denny could cost himself a win and continue the streak of seasons of winning.... overall it's a smart move by JGR.... and if they were going all BS blah blah blah they would have just had Denny qualify a little slower and then Kyle would have been on the pole LOL

    Well 2 races so far have been pretty mild. Usually the Trucks and Xfinity have more action. Maybe this will mean tomorrow's race will be extra wild (one can only hope).

    Well, if we get a restart with a block on Logano, we might see some carnage.

    Something that boggles my mind during the race: On the restarts, no one had any real success restarting on the outside front row (Except for Joey Logano that one time), and with new tires, the bottom is pretty much the place to be, so what are they thinking on choosing the outside?

    I wondered that, too. And you saw on that last restart, KB seemed to launch off so slowly.
