    Regan Smith apparently had someone in his ear telling him to shut down when everything seemed to be working right.

    2008 all over again. 18 has always had the same sized "golden horseshoe" as the 48.

    He's just had it longer now

    No worries there. New for 2019 is that any winner that fails post race inspection will lose the win. Will never happen unless it is someone like Chris Buescher.

    Joey had the best car today. I can live with a loss from a bad pit call.. no matter what he does there the others do different. I'm happy to see Penske had the field covered.

    Pretty much a given that Nascar is going to twiddle their thumbs when a late caution comes out on any track. I don't think the booth called it right either. There were way more cars that stayed out than what they were saying.

    11th place for Chase is pretty damn good considering he had no or at times sporadic power steering 90% of the race.

    I can't believe Ty Dillon is 22nd in points with an average finish of 18.9, a top 10, 4 top 15's, & a stage win. Finishing 6 positions higher than last year.

    Ryan Newman looks significantly better than Trevor Bayne, and I see a Roush car getting into the top 16.

    Sheer joy on a Monday morning to see posts praising 11th place finisher Chasing History, 13th by Harvick rocking Rodney's magic, etc., etc.....If I just flew in from outer space, I would know how won simply by looking at posts like this. Outstanding. Hell yes Kyle Busch! Hell yes! First in points. Manufacturer first in points. I know....all luck. No skill. Got it. LOL.

    Newman not happy with young Blaney. Fenced me, fenced him
    Ryan Newman to Ryan Blaney: “The spotter can’t drive the car”

    When asked if he was happy for the first top 10 and upset about the incident, Newman didn’t leave anyone wondering with his answer.

    “Both,” he said. “You expect more out of him. If it’s a rookie, it’s one thing but the spotter can’t drive the car and the spotter has to see the runs, too. We had a car that was better than we ran most all day, just kind of got caught up there. (I’m) proud of the guys and they did a good job on pit road despite the penalty. We just have to keep digging.

    Blaney was trying to make the pass by Newman for position and collected the veteran in the process and took the blame after the race.

    “I put him in the fence off of (Turn) 2 by accident I tried to clear him myself just racing hard on a restart,” said Blaney. “My spotter said he was still out there but I stayed on the gas and tried to clear him myself and I fenced him and I feel bad about that.

    “He got me back and fenced me on the frontstretch. That’s hard racing and Ryan and I have always raced each other good and it’s nice to be able to laugh about it. It was my fault, I was just trying to clear it myself.”
