    Unless drivers decide to try and make any moves, i see the field following the pied piper again.

    With all the non chasers able to get a good finish I don't see the chase drivers being able to follow the leader all race since they are literally only a few points apart. Its gunna be crazy. If the end of the race turns out to be boring I will be so shocked so many chase drivers just rolled over and accepted they are out of the championship because they didn't pass some cars and wanted to follow the leader single file.

    How about the rain this weekend? Any chance of it?

    Accuweather says clear for tomorrow and a thick cloud cover for Sunday. Only 15% chance of rain for the day though.

    "Read the blog"
    If there's anyone to trust for the forecast this week, it's James Spann and company over at AlabamaWx.com

    Less than 10 to go in the Truck race with a wreck between Stanton Barrett and Matt Crafton. Finish should be interesting in an otherwise tame race.

    5 bux says everyone starts pushing on the final lap as usual, and NASCAR doesn't call not a one.

    Big one (finally)...

    Also, yet another case of NASCAR inconsistency with Bell getting black flagged for pushing. #33 does NOT get flagged. Both drivers were flagged in the past....

    I think Brandon didn't want to be pushed. Remember when everyone called BS on Nemechek last year? This is their response to it.

    TBH. That was really obvious pushing. At least Nascar did something.

    Oh I remember that, just like I remember when James Beuscher was also penalized along with who ever it was pushing him at Daytona. Everyone called BS with that too but where was the response?

    Something always seems to happen to Crafton at Talladega doesn't it?

    No they won't, because they'll have another wreck before the white flag and end the race under caution... One of us will be right LOL ;)

    Maybe if NASCAR didn't have a bunch of unnecessary rules, all this controversy wouldn't exist. ;)

    I don't like the no pushing rule but... I think NASCAR called it right this time (and I don't normally say that). 33 tried to shake off the 54 hard, and NASCAR had warned the 54 multiple times, and was pretty much ignored.

    Now, let's see if this "fix-all GWC rule change" actually does anything to alleviate the "problem"....

    I'm betting it won't.
