    Oh man, I gotta getty up to Daytonner personally today to get my Jr. Jr. Jr. tickets!

    They're really shameless aren't they? The Q&A sessions will be like Star Trek conventions when
    Shattner answers the most ridiculous questions from Trek nerds. I can hear it now, "Dale! Dale!
    Dale!, when you spun out on lap 134 at Darlington in 2002, what were you thinking?".

    $199 does not seem too far-fetched for that.
    NFL would have probably been $999.

    I think they know the party is almost over. Based upon the classic "pump and dump" of the stock market, this appears to take on the shade of latter CART days. Dump it all before the house of cards folds. Stick to the people who have made it off your back. Comcast seems ripe considering their cash flow and net worth.

    Unfortunately when I look at F1, whoever buys NASCAR might just be worse than the devil we know.

    Depends on what business school you went to. But considering today's market, over pay for it, strip the guts out of it and run it into the ground while taking a sizeable tax deduction along the way. How my doing so far?

    And to quote Gordon Gekko....." because it's wreckable" ;)

    EA has managed to wreck the good content creation of a lot of gaming studios they have bought.

    I'm really hoping long term the new owners of F1 won't be like EA, but I am seeing similar signs.

    Not following F1 this year, and won't until signs improve. I'd rather find/invest something I can enjoy for the long term.

    Smaller racing that isn't on NBC is a good start.

    I liked the Sprint Cup girls.

    The gaggle of models Monster has not so much.

    NASCAR doesn't really have a "grid" for the grid girls. They line the cars up next to each other on pit road. There is a mass of "VIP's Guests" with hot passes, some crew, drivers, etc.

    I liked being one of those VIP guests with hot passes for the national anthem, really awesome to stand with the cars and teams. The rest of it was a lot folks mostly interested in taking and posting selfies from small rectangular devices. Not my thing.

    I do not think it would be in NASCAR's best interest to implement grid girls in the fashion Monster would go about it.

    Appears Danica got caught up in a big crash started by the top running cars and is out.

    I can't complain that the #3 won today as I was a big Dale fan long ago when I actually watched every lap of this race.

    you can complain when he dumped Almirola on the last lap...

    btw, Almirola nearly winning in his first race in the 10 car doesn't speak well for Danica. bye Felicia.

    nice run by Bubba Wallace in the 43

    Wallace pushed Dillon who ended up pushing Almirola and because he wasn't directly in front of him got spun out. That's pretty typical in in this "racing."

    Weasel wins by clipping the leader. Was hoping for DiBenedetto to finish top 5; good for Bubba.

    Almirola threw a couple of blocks, Dillon hooked him into the fence. blame on both sides but more on Dillon IMO.

    will be interesting to see if NASCAR adopts the "one move" block rule almost every other series uses. I doubt it, since NASCAR lives for this ****.
