For the record I cannot stand Kyle Busch, but he showed a great deal of class in that celebration. His interaction with Brexton was truly touching. This may be the first time he ever showed an ounce of humility. Congrats Rowdy Mation. Man that hurts to type... ;)

Man. This board is dead. It wasn't this dead in 2015. Is it the champion? Is it the race? Is it people coming around on the package?

The race could have been better.

Just the high-downforce and low power made it difficult for anything to happen. Once it spread out, it spreads out badly.

I would like to point out JGR bookended the season with 1,2,3 finishes, pretty damn cool. Also, shout out to Erik Jones to going from almost a lap down in stage 1 to finishing 3rd lol. He's gonna have a breakout year next season
Also saw where JGR set a new record for wins in a season with 19, breaking the record previously held by HMS with 18 in 2007. They had a helluva year.

That's how it's been all year.

I keep thinking back to 10 years ago where the dominant car wasn't always going to be fast until the end. Driver and in race adjustments could maximize corner speed and out run "the fastest car" at times.

Today, as long as you keep up with the track, if you unload fast, show up Sunday with the car to beat, you are the car to beat and there's nothing that 3rd place car can do to out run you.

Not to take anything away from Kyle cause he is good in any package, but it's just different racing.

Weird race. Pearn puts shoes on the wrong foot. Hamlin pushing water with maxi-tape plastered on his grill. Harvick gets desperate and puts himself at the mercy of a Caution that would never come. KyBu humbly tears-up riding to victory and is subdued in his track interview.

The broadcast is filled with emotional narratives and human interest stories. No raucous celebration, more like touchy-feely reflection with a positive yet somber mood.

Is Oprah running NASCAR?

It looked like all of the teams (except Larson) were just staying out of the way and letting the four contenders run for The Cup. It didn't feel like a real race. The contenders were just trying not to make mistakes (there were moments where they ran each other hard). Larson was the only one in the field trying to win the race. Congrats to Kyle and his team for running the race better than the three competitors. (I thought all four of the contenders were worthy of The Cup this year).
