    I hear you brother, but I have always seen him as a threat since he landed at Penske. I look at Joey's year last year as similar to the '78 Yankees (going way back). This was not the greatest team in Yankee history--in fact, many teams who never won it all were far better, but yet, they won the Championship, and that is all that matters. Again, I'll take 3 Kyle wins and a Championship every damn day.

    Yeah, and I get that, but Joey and Penske executed last year when it mattered the most, and that personally is my definition of greatness in sport. I understand the arguments against the current format, but it is what it is, and that is the target for the teams and drivers until it is changed.

    I hear that.. I definitely prefer 2018 with 3 and the cup to 2015 with 6 and no cup

    Absolutely, that's the target, therefore it was a great run he went on for the Championship.

    What made Logano's Champion run so great was the Final Four competition he had to beat -- and how it unfolded. Three Champions and Joey entered the race for the Championship, and they all had to suffer the ups and downs of the Homestead Bowl. Joey prevailed by driving to the front.

    IMHO

    "The Big Three and Me"

    I hope if all the same guys are in the final four this year he calls it "Me and The Big Three"

    I'd like to see the odds people give him under those same circumstances again. I bet he would have much less people counting him out like they did this time.

    Good quote from Logano on Pete Pistone's column. So many sociopaths on social media these days.

    So when Logano was asked in his post-race media availability why there was so much perceived complaining on Twitter after the checkered flag, he took the opportunity to share his thoughts that actually encapsulated a much wider assessment of the world today than simply a reaction of sports fans:

    Who’s complaining? Okay, here’s the thing: People love to complain. You want to get me going? Here we go. People love to talk about negative stories, and I don’t know why. I don’t understand it. There’s a lot of positive going on in our world, and I’m not just talking about NASCAR racing. But there is plenty of good things that happen, and every time we turn on the news I am sick of seeing negative stories because there’s all these good stories that get overshadowed by someone writing a negative story or someone getting on Twitter and being all big and bad and writing something that makes them feel better because they want something different. Sometimes I don’t think those people know what they want. That’s my opinion.

    You know, I think when I look at where we are as a sport, there’s a lot of great things coming down the pipeline for us. There’s a lot of great decisions that are being made. There’s a lot of collaboration of race teams and drivers and sponsors and racetracks. Everyone is working together. TV partners, media, all you guys, we’re all working together, and there’s a lot of good things happening because we’re all working together, and I think the fans are going to benefit from that.

    You know, I don’t know what else to tell you, man. When you have cars racing side by side to the start-finish line after — how many laps was that last run? A long run, 100 laps-ish?

    And a good quote from Pistone that sums it up
    Sports are meant to bring joy, happiness and pleasure to fans so they can take their minds off the trials and tribulations of real life. It’s a shame some have a hard time differentiating between the two.

    Negative people will always see things under a dark cloud.
    I listened to a lady say I would rather die that have my breast removed. An elder women said in response "I wish these dang things didn't always hang and get in my way."
    It is all about your perspective. Just like those who spent all winter telling us how bad the racing will be.

    People don’t like happy positive people. Usually due to their miserable lives...
