    Byron's looking good so far. Let's hope he can keep it up.

    That chicane miss rule is kinda questionable IMHO,

    If you go through the chicane to avoid a wreck you shouldn't get a penalty. Bad call by NASCAR.

    IMHO, if a driver misses the chicane to avoid a crash, at most they should only get a time penalty

    The Roval is not cutting Truex any slack today.

    I'm not a fan of time penalties. If they miss the chicane and gain positions, they should have to give the positions back.
    If someone misses the chicane without gaining an advantage, there shouldn't be any penalty, IMO.

    Byron is as dominant as he was during stage 1 in the Sonoma race. I hope they have a better strategy today.

    That didn’t merit a yellow.

    Why was that a caution?

    Caution for Preece spinning in the backstretch chicane.
     
  22. donthaveanickname

    Since Preece's car was neither stalled nor in the way, this shouldn't have been a caution

    They gain time and save tire wear. They’re not driving the same course. They should be penalized.

    It looked like Menard started that all by getting into the back of Kurt

    These guys could do themselves a lot of favors if they didn't drive into 1 so hard. The risk just isn't worth it.

    So they never threw the yellow for Bowmans wreck but they threw it for Preece?

    issa joke

    "We love the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval and its 17 twists and turns. However, in re-watching last year’s race, we realized the only corner name people could remember was the TUMS Heartburn Turn — you know, the one where Brad Keselowski led half the field straight into the wall on a late-race restart."

    1 lap shootouts are stupid. Just have the stage under caution and go to stage 2.

    Network designed commercial breaks.

    Erik Jones has a punctured radiator due to that incident. He's going to the garage. This will eliminate him from the playoffs.

    He wasn’t going anyway; this just makes it official.

    Cloud cover for most of the stage. Air temp down 10 degrees.
