Yard Sale in the truck series race right now. On a restart, too.

If we can do full stands, we can do actual qualifying too. Teams aren’t spreading the virus in the garages so what difference will qualifying make. I really think it’s about money and tires...saving resources. Since the top teams keep getting the poles, none of them are making a big deal about it. Not like it affected the champion last year (who had few poles), but the previous week’s success really helps get the pole the following week.

Friesen called restarts a “shitshow” on the radio interview with Mikey live on air.

And promptly crashed on a restart.

About 2/3 of the current Truck Series drivers shouldn’t be above the K&N Series. The races are a wreck fest most weeks.

Ridiculous how many caution laps NASCAR makes them run. A simple spin equals 4 or 5 caution laps.

Just got back from the race. Holy crap the cautions.

Does anyone have a link to the video of this restart cluster?

It's incredibly easy to spin the tires on a restart at Darlington.

You have to use an image hosting site and then post the embed code into the “image” button pop-up.

re: 2021 NASCAR Season Thread
I grew up as a Dale Jarrett fan, he is my all-time favorite driver. Today, there are two Dale Jarrett UPS throwback schemes in the Xfinity Series race.

First, is the throwback to DJ’s 2002 UPS paint scheme being run by Brandon Brown:

Next, there is the throwback to DJ’s 2006 paint scheme which was DJ’s final season with Robert Yates Racing, driven by Jeremy Clements:

I agree. It seems like the top 10-15 is the same every week. I think NASCAR needs to rethink this and do a practice session followed by a qualifying. Plus, hopefully it would get rid of the stupid competition caution.

I was a Davey and Bill Elliott fan growing up. When Davey died and Jarrett took the seat, I became a huge fan. Loved the blue Quality Care car and the UPS car. I miss those days and I miss Robert Yates Racing.

Beautiful car. Thinking about it brings back memories of the peak era of NASCAR.

I know I say it every week but these cup driver announcers just aren’t fun to listen to.
