To be honest, I was aiming towards a 6. But the last two restarts and having Chastain racing Reddick and holding up Cindric...just a mess! I've never been big on road courses and I've always thought Sonoma and Watkins Glen were plenty.
3 - Just not a good venue for Cup. The access road thing should have been managed well before Ross took his diversion (that others had). Also Ross did not hold up Cindric. If anything his temp lead enabled the 2 to catch up to the 8. But Ross should have come to a stop, then started forward per the “Roval rules”…which apparently weren’t well defined here.
7.0. Could have been better but I like road courses and short tracks. Thought Ross's move was clever and a gamble but the man said he was only trying to stay out of the four wide mess, and it was a mess. Can't dispute his thought process because whether he did it intentionally or not, he was going for the win and that is why they pay him the big bucks. Would be good if they do something to the turns in order to prevent such a gaggle of cars all trying for the same opening at once. Reminded me when my son raced motocross and going for the hole shot.
