    I hope this isn't like Fontana or Pocono...... Maybe like Kansas like Martin was saying

    Is this the weekend Chastain is forced to miss a top-series race? I assume he'll skip the Trucks.

    maybe so. I haven't heard after Kansas if he had any more races. Childress is racing a newbe in the Xfinity race this weekend is all I found different

    This could be a drafting type race with the grip that many thought Fontana could be. Either way it’s race weekend and I am ready

    Not much happening on the TV side. Three series, 5 events.

    Why though? That’s pretty much the preferred line there. IMO you get loose when going a little high and that’s where they should have put that. Is a tricky place to drive though because of the speeds you generate

    Bowyer has a rocket this weekend. If he wants to keep his ride he should probably not screw this up

    Helluva lap for an old, washed-up dude.

    Ten lap average wise, Denny caught my eye running his fastest laps 30+ laps into a run. Bowman as well looking fast over a long run, interesting stuff. A lot of good cars, SHR looks like they are primed to make something happen this week.

    Barely lifting in the corners.
    For shame :(

    Not surprised that Kurt is the fastest Chevrolet, he’s certainly the best driver currently in a Chevrolet.

    Harvick barely the fastest in the second practice.

    Chevrolet needs a new engine design, it’s at HP tracks like Michigan that it shows they are lacking.

    Chevrolet made improvement from where they started but the race finish Sunday will tell if they are any good.

    ChexOrWrex Ya gotta wanna

    Certainly not.

    KuBusch: 0 wins, 3 top 5s, 31 laps lead, avg fin 10.3

    C. Elliott: 1 win, 6 top 5s, 402 laps lead, avg fin 9.2. Also he has had 5 consecutive top 5 finishes.

    You can have an opinion but you cant have your own facts.

    How many championships does Elliott have?

    OK, then using your argument, Jimmie Johnson is currently the best driver in a Chevrolet

    Green wouldn't be any earlier than 2pm (need 24-hour notice to move race an hour earlier). It is raining at moment and there are more cells to southeast. No lights but can race until around 9:15 before darkness so need 90 minutes or so to dry track. Stages 60-60-80.

    I'm not sure if you just took advantage of an opportunity or if that was your goal all along and Kurt was just the bait. Either way, well played.
