    Six races into the season and what is no one talking about? Penalties!

    Aside from a handful of lug nut infractions each week the penalty report has been pretty nonchalant. I guess the clamping down on things has made a positive impact already.

    Pretty big shake-ups in the 2020 Schedule announcement today!

    Not a big fan of moving the Firecracker 400 away from July 4th, especially in favor of the annual Brickyard snoozer. Love the finale moving away from Homestead, with the rumor being that the finale starts moving to a different track each year in 2021. Bristol Night Race as a cutoff race should be interesting, too!

    I agree about moving Daytona. Nascar evidently doesn't care about tradition. I'm just glad the night race at Bristol the cut off race is early in the "playoffs". The 2 races we attend (Richmond) are at about the same date.

    At least they didn't try to move the Opening week from Daytona.

    It would make absolutely no sense whatsoever for NASCAR to do something like that, therefore I wouldn't be surprised in the least if they did it. We are talking about NASCAR here. :rolleyes:

    I understand but that's there bread and butter week, There would be such a uproar that might be the final nail in coffin for Nascar. At least they would lose me, After a long Winter I look forward to speed weeks and if it went away I would be so pissed they would lose me.

    The problem with Nascar it seems, is there are no adults in charge there.

    My condolences...as a 20+ year veteran of Bristol races Rain/Floods/Snow, I feel your pain. Hopefully it won't be a total washout tonight!

    Well, it's lightened up quite a bit in the last half hour. Radar shows rain may be over ,so I'll enjoy watching Kevin leading them to the green.
