    Pretty sure the two of them had a run in at a plate track last year as well

    I could argue he didn't see the incident very well. I believe it was the third replay before DW said it was Johnson's fault. I could say some are just looking for anything to complain about. I know I was convinced when they got around to showing a replay from the back before I knew for sure Menard didn't come down but a bit and it looked like Jimmie's car pulled him over and lifted him up.

    It’s not relevant to anything, why are you even coming up with a number for attendance for an exhibition race that’s not even a full field.

    Jeff Gordon should not be in the booth because he has a financial stake in Hendrick Motorsports, not because he doesn't know what he's talking about.

    He ain't talking about you. Sorry he called you that, wasn't necessary, but he's aggravated about trying to post usefully amongst the troll blabber about attendance this and ratings that. You may be insane ;), but you are not a troll.

    Half ass drivers? lol. ok. As for what you paid for a ticket, thats up to you. They had many tickets under 50 bucks, hell they have tickets for the 500 for 100 bucks! Compare that to a damn pro football game.

    Critical Thinking is what leads to the truth that he has a financial stake in HMS and that THAT compromises his position as an impartial and neutral analyst/reporter providing commentary. Sorry if that wasn’t clear... :)

    Looks like we're going to have ourselves a hell of a year on here. 10 pages on a race that didn't go 150 miles. Just wait until Jimmie inevitably wrecks himself next Sunday, and the aero bitch races beginning at Atlanta. :)

    I’m surprised there are still tickets available for the 500.

    I paid $50 for a $120 ticket because I've been going there long enough to know that that is possible if you just wait. Some people don't know that and the track is taking advantage of those people by setting those crazy high prices. I have an issue with that when the product is subpar and watered down compared to their other events.

    I wasn't talking about the 500. But as a comparison to your example, is the NFL charging $120 for a preseason game? Cause that's essentially what The Clash is. Except it lasts half as long.

    Ah yes, what you see here is the effects of JDS going full swing.

    That dude is almost as bad as Truex Jr meting out street justice to Jimmie at the ROVAL.

    I get Bills tickets for less than $20. Outside of a select few teams (Packers, Patriots, Eagles, Seahawks couple more) teams NFL tickets can be had pretty cheap. I can generally get pretty solid upper deck (between the 20s) Steelers tickets for $50-$75.

    Daytona and Bristol tickets are insanely expensive relative to the rest of the circuit. The Clash use to be 20 laps and drew very well. The fact it was the first competitive Cup race of the year made it an "event" in its own right.

    Actually you were attempting to speak for others when you said " nobody" cares what the other poster thinks. Also the " its obvious to all" part suggests that you were speaking for more than just yourself. You don't speak for me when you say those things, I speak for myself. BTW . I am not yer bud

    I paid $38 for mine on stub hub Thursday night. For the coke 400 I couldn't get free rolex lounge tixs so I paid $450 for 2 and these are $1200 each.

    Jimmie got a run. Menard came down to block. The air disturbed Menards car enough to turn him. It was a racing incident. Get over it.

    So, he has some sort of influence over the sanctioning body because he’s a TV analyst? That’s a stupid statement.

    It just didn't seem right watching Jimmy and Chad on different teams.

    “It’s called THE TRASH for a reason.” Feel free to use that in the marketing, for truth in advertising.

    This whole Daytona festival of meaningless racing to start the year has outlived its appeal.

    It should be showcasing the new season and rules in the top three series — instead it is stale and uninspired.

    It didn’t seem right, watching Jimmie and Chad on the same team last year. Chad is a nagger, and Jimmie was looking for a new work-wife.

    Things change... :D
