    might be because their driver Jr is retiring. They might be thinking different next year

    They need to pick better drivers. ;)

    All kidding aside, the same thing happens in football and baseball.

    Did we ever learn exactly what was burning?

    Not exactly. In other sports, teams not eligible for the championship aren't out there still trying to improve their final standings and affecting the championship competitors.

    I understood it to be the styrofoam stuff inside the safer barrier. Set off by the extremely hot piece of brake rotor.

    Joey is going to be on Fast and Loud next week. Gas Monkey is building Kurt Busch a $ 200,000 +Pantera to race against whatever Joey has. Kurt had some of his Nascar team build part of it along with the Gas Monkeys.Joey's car is bad ass. I'm guessing it is a modernized Shelby Daytona Cobra. I think Kurt's car will be faster, they are sticking a Coyote motor in his.

    Anybody know if C1 will continue to sponsor Elliott Sadler?
     
  19. Yep......... Alan won it by leading the most laps........ Junior was pissed that Tim Brewer wasn't counting them...... Jr. accused Tim and Flossie for conniving to steal his race team from him and so he divorced Flossie and married a young girl....... that was a truly momentous day that had so many twists and turns and ramifications that we will more than likely never see again.........

    We've been robbed of a day like that ever having the opportunity to happen again. That moment was special because it was special..... naturally.

    Dang I thought this was the beginning of the end when they couldn't find tires..thought they might have to go with recaps..

    That'll be the gimmick for the 2018 All-Star race. They get two sets of tires and have to recap them in the pits after each use. Also, they'll run the first segment on the oval, the second segment on the road course, and the final segment will be chosen by IndyCar.

    I was fortunate to be at the Atlanta fall race the day Kulwicki won the title. Davey had it sewed up with about sixty laps to go, he got caught up in a wreck with Ernie Ervin, ended Daveys day. That was without a doubt the best race I've ever attended. Pettys last start, Gordons first start. And who would have ever knew, Davey and Alan would not be around for the next fall race at Atlanta? Bittersweet, to say the least.

  26. So many things that went on that day and that race........ things that had ramifications beyond that day...... as you mentioned..... Davey had it wrapped up... Ernie Irvan took him out.... When Alan was killed Davey said ..''I am so glad that Alan won the Championship..... I will have many more years''....... Davey died 3 months later....... and the driver that took Davey out of contention for the '92 Cup........ stepped into Davey's car........
