    I don't like the Playoff system either and don't like the Stage stuff either.

    I'm enjoying the #4 ....
    As long as the #18 is not winning, the world is ok.

    Also waiting on Elliot to win.

    Of all of the changes to the All Star Race over the years, I really wish they'd get rid of the Sympathy Vote. Second and third rate drivers like Danicant, Little Ralphie and now Clyde don't belong in the All Star Race useless they either actually win a points paying race, or race their way in from the Open. The racing was interesting with the plates, but it's essentially a slower and shorter Daytona. Next week, the most boring race of the year, second only to the Brickyard 400. Can't wait for the Fall Charlotte race though, that should be fun to watch.

    How many racers were in this All Star race ?
    What is it, 20 ish ?
    Why not get rid of about 10 of them as there really only about 10 racers that are gonna win anyways.

    Ya know Dale Earnhardt Jr. was VOTED in as well ... I have No Problem with the fans voting 1 person in.
    I would GUESS that Bill Elliot may have been Voted in at some time as well.

    Earn your way in by being a winner, not by who your daddy was.

    Elliot would win every race in Canada.
    But he is too polite for the USA Nascar drivers.

    So far.

    Dale Jr. would have won much more, but he too was too NICE on the track.

    I feel like Chase is one second place finish away from losing the nice, going full heel, and wrecking half the field to win one. :devilish

    (full disclosure...I'd probably enjoy watching that play out :D)

    Stage racing is the only reason I watch anymore. Got better things to do than watch them play follow the leader until the last 10 laps.

    Michigan...Easy as :first, :second, :third!

    A rare :hatsoff to Mother Nature's timing.

    Always refreshing to see Clint's over-ecstatic victory lane interviews, too! :D

    Yes I’d rather watch a good baseball game anytime now, at least they don’t have restrictors on riding around in oversized go-karts
