    I say don't add anymore dirt races. Unless it's Cup and/or Xfinty and on the West coast. If you add more races to Eldora, it takes away the prestige, it takes away attendance (because they they can attend the race with the bigger names in it and ignore trucks), and it makes the purse plummet. The purse at Eldora is already the lowest of the year for the trucks. It's just not a solid decision and it takes the special feeling away from the one dirt race of the year.

    Even if more dirt events take some of the special feeling away, its not like all the mile and a halfs we have are special.

    I'd rather have more good racing throughout the year than a feeling of uniqueness.

    I think each series should have their own dirt race at completely different tracks and completely different times of the year to keep them all as special as possible

    Jesus Christ. It seems every couple races has a threat of rain.

    I know the chat box is about to close so...
    Notice the little boy in the Kyle Busch shirt on the far left... LOL :D:):p

    So this was, by far, my favorite race this year! As I've stated several times, it's all about who's standing in victory lane for me, and when that guy happens to be my favorite driver and he happened to move my least favorite driver out of the way to do it, I mean, that's just awesome... for me anyway. I loved it when Kevin said, "Same thing as Chicago." And then, as expected, Kryle Busch pretended not to hear it. Poor thing. :p I'm sure some (if not most) of you didn't like the outcome, but hey, I don't care! Kevin's got the most wins again and he's back on top!!! #4theWin

    So about the t-shirts... not a fan at all. Also looks like Jeff and Steve were uncomfortable in them, I mean it looks like they bought their shirts this week because they don’t typically wear shirts like that. I personally just prefer a more professional look for your professional job. Polos should be the furthest from suits that they go. Overall it was a good race though. Rick did a great job on pit road, I’d love to see him do more in that role.

    I bet that kid only likes #18 because its the M&M's car and not based on talent.. SMH.

    I didn't mind what the commentators were wearing, since 90% of the coverage wasn't showing their t-shirts and showing actual racing...so I dont see the big gripe over this.

    How can anyone gripe over someone wearing a Dick Trickle T-shirt

    Didn't like the booth setup. Rick is a play by play guy, he belongs in the booth. Jeff and Steve seemed awkward with doing play by play calls. Felt wrong not having a lead commentator.

    All this fuss over the commentating team and what they wore... What is this? Is this a fashion forum now? I guess half of you guys missed one great race yesterday worrying about the announcers and their outfits! For the record, Rick Allen did a great job in the pits though...

    My DVR stopped recording after stage 2 on Sunday since I forgot to record longer than the regular race time. Thankfully got to see the replay of the last stage on Monday. I could have just saw who won Sunday night on Nascar.com but that was a good race to see in the end.

    It has now been one year since Hendrick won their last points race.

    And neither has NBC shoved it down our throats like FOX did when JGR went winless for 12 races...

    Thank you NBC

    That’s because they’re so focused on the BIG 3!!! They don’t time to talk about anything else.
