9.5. We could only hope the rest of the 1.5 mile races are this good

As entertaining as any 1.5 race I can think of in quite awhile. Lots of lead changes and racing throughout the field. I'm giving it a 10.

9 for lots of hard racing, passing, multi-groove grooving’. Also happy for Larson getting back to victory!

So far pretty good ratings on here today. Only 2 low ratings and I knew as soon as I saw the name on one post that it was going to be low. :)

I won't assign ratings to races that use these flaccid motors and excessive downforce and drag, because they *always* leave me feeling grumpy and unsatisfied. Good racing is a stern test of driving skills... and the greater the degree of difficulty, the better I like it. When Larry Mac follows a driver's data stream for 30 laps and says he still hasn't lifted "since he shifted into 4th gear when the green flag dropped," well to me, that says it all.

I'm aware my views on the current state of Nascar Cup Series racing are distinctly a minority opinion. I regret that a majority of fans are happy with the illusion of good racing, and don't seem to mind the absence of the real thing. [End of rant.]

Despite my total disdain for cup series engine and aerodynamic rules, it was good to see Kyle Larson grab the trophy. He has earned his second chance. Also, a classy move by Brad K to run out to congratulate Kyle. And doubly classy for Bubba Wallace to do the same in victory lane.
