Did you get to see Bristol?

Was it worth watching in your eyes?

What was the highlight or lowlight of the race in your eyes?

A few of the drivers have locked into the Chase now.

I see Roby Gordon does not swant to give the number 7 to Danica. Robby says she should be happy with the 77 if she can get that one.

Good for Robby. he isn't getting caught up in the Danica Nation thing.

The race: was a bit boring, but still glad we saw it.

Highlight was Brad K winning.....liking him more and more.

Lowlight was Jr finishing 16th.....he has 1 win, 7 top 5's, and 12 top 10's here....but at least his position did not drop.

Robby Gordon not wanting to give up the 7: why should he?......it's his number....I would not give up my number to a newcomer or anyone.........Lots of drivers have different NW & Cup numbers......so Danica, compromise....if the 77 not available, go with 777.

Stewart is making the statement that I have made many times, it's tough to be an owner/driver.

I think I am getting convinced that brad is the real deal. Did the 24 make a single pit stop and not lose positions?

666 might be more appropriate! LOL

Now I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but it just doesn't seem like Rick is a driven for Jeff to win anymore. Took his crew, CC and left him to sink or swim...

Overall, I thought the race was OK, maybe there's some competition for Kyle now.

Yeah, finally people start to listen to what I've been sayin all year.

Over the past couple months, there hasn't been a better driver than Brad K.

He's improved from 23rd to 11th in the points, and if he keeps driving the way he does, and Stewart keeps driving the way he's been, Brad will easily make the top 10, and the wild card will go to someone else.

Gordon's interview afterward summed it up. He commented on the timing sections of pit road and how much more of an advantage certain pit stalls were. Brad K's stops all night were letting him pass at least 2 cars at a time in the timing zones. It was crazy how he was able to just fly past people and then slam on the brakes. The final pit stop is what won the race for Brad.

Oh...and good for Robby standing his ground on the 7, BUT if I'm Robby I might work some sort of deal with Hendrick in exchange for the number (whether it being able to buy engines or whatever).

Not so sure Jeff got shorted with Alan.

Naw .... it just that Go Daddy has not make an offer yet ... say $700,000 to Robby Start n' Park ...

Also remember ;) Numbers are Owned and Assigned by NASCAR, teams can request a number and hold the license ...

So NASCAR could just take the Number #7 from Robby, give him #07 ... basic on Robby being outside the Top35, a Sn'P ... or Whatever ;)

Good Old NASCAR fix the Ploblem after the fact ... Race winner Brad K. and others appeared to benefit from the location of their pits, giving them more room to move faster in certain sections of pit road. Other pit spots were not as advantageous. NASCAR director John Darby admitted after the race that the situation was not ideal and said NASCAR will address it. "We understand what happened, and we're already looking at it," he said. "We'll probably put in two more scoring loops on each side of pit road."
Based primarily on their pit locations, some drivers were positioned to "speed" along portions of pit road, then quickly hit their brakes before being detected. Additional loops should take care of that discrepancy.

But, I did miss the race. Wish I would have got to see it since Brad is my second favorite driver.

Definitely not if he continues to finish as low as he's been finishing, and Brad Keselowski keeps on driving out of his mind.

With winng two races so far this year, I have to agree. Jeffs hungry and I think Alan is also.
