    A single file parade ended by a driver attempting to advance because the weather held a metaphorical gun to his head. My score would be lower but I don't want to be the one that's dropped.

    Thanks Johali.

    I’m going with a 4 on this one. Good to see the cars back on the track, but the intermittent rain, freight training, and Jimmie’s bump and win made it a rather unsatisfying race.

  7. 4 just because it’s great to have cars back on track. Besides that there was little to nothing good with that

    Single file parade when it wasn't raining and then most of the field got wiped out and the skies opened up to end it.

    Too much single file racing and rain killed this race.

    I'll go with a 2.5, probably too high but at least we saw cars on track going fast again

    I'll go 1, and that's ONLY because one of my guys won the race, as ugly of a way to win as it was. As if the race itself wasn't dull enough, the rain wiped out any flow to the event it might have had. This is another race that would be MUCH better served to move to another venue.

    4. Great to see the Wood Brothers 21 kicking ass. JJ should have been too embarrassed to celebrate in victory lane.

    I say 1. The only time it got interesting is when Johnson tried to pass Meard for the lead and wrecked the whole field.

    1 - Calling these plate track travesty's a race is an insult to real racing

    The race wasn't as bad as the way it ended imo... u cant blame NASCAR or the cars for the drivers taking it easy. It's the nature of the beast. To finish first.. first you must finish

    Ride around and destroy the field on the last lap isn't racing

    I understand that there will be wrecks in racing but the stuff that goes on at plate tracks is a complete waste. When you factor in the potential for injury IDK what people see in them.

    I just hope the new rules don’t give us mini Daytona style races.

    I don't know that anybody was taking it easy, but for whatever reason, it was a one groove race track. Unless you were going to bulldoze somebody, it was going to be pretty hard to go anywhere.
