Five car owners are all in for winning the championship. Penske is ahead at this point. He's got the most money AND the most experience. Money always wins, or so it seems. Therefore, IMO the racetracks should be no longer than 6,000 feet. Of course, the scientific solution can not be implemented because it's the people with the most money who OWN the superspeedways.

Yeah, but the Carousel is back. That should count for something.
This is one race I want to watch.

Your guy in the 18 is having all kinds of problems. I would put money on him winning the pole and the race. I think he’s learning things that the others aren’t.

I would have liked to see the outcome yesterday if Kyle had pitted with Truex.

IMO there's too many unknown-to-us factors which go into the decision to try a different pit stop strategy. I do not stay glued to the TV, I only watch segments of the race. But, it was obvious to me that Kyle's car had less traction accelerating out of the turn than the Truex car. Kudos to the crew yes, but Truex was very impressive in the way he drove.

Kyle did every thing he could to catch Truex but by the last 10 laps the tires were pretty well equalized,Martin drove a smart race by working lapped traffic to his benefit and he deserved to win that race. I am a huge fan of both Busch Bros. but Truex won that race cause he deserved to.

So, you win races because you deserve to? I've witnessed first hand, from the driver's seat (in the race), hundreds of races, AND I've WON hundreds of motor vehicle races, and I say that how well the vehicle PERFORMS has more to do with winning these races, THAN how well the driver performs. It's NOT like boxing. IMO if you truly follow auto racing, and don't know this, you're missing something. I've won championships, and YES I've enjoyed the limelight, while smiling a lot, knowing full well how it was that I was able to win. IMO there's no way to know how many potentially very good drivers are out there. But, we will select our favorites,.... regardless. Even DW has a favorit driver.

Truex won that race because he had a car equal to Kyles and maybe a little better but he also drove a smart race,thats why I think he deserved to win.

There's no doubt that Truex won the race and that he drove flawlessly.
I've learned that the tires on the #18 had significantly more laps on them than the tires on the Truex car. This explains what I saw in the last 10 laps. Kyle would gain on Truex as he approached the turns, and lose ground accelerating out of the turns. I also learned that Kyle's crew, during practice and also the first part of the race, had trouble finding the optimum set up on the chassis. Winning in NASCAR is a team effort. We all know that.
