I can't watch at the moment. Is the race going to happen on time or is it raining?
Not happening any time soon from the looks of things.
What happens on Redneck Hill (south end of Charlotte infield) stays on Redneck Hill. Lots of craziness going on since the 600 weekend is a long weekend. By all reports Dega is even crazier.
Dega is. The wagon races at Charlotte back in the day were pretty good though.
It doesn’t have to be black, as we saw from the 21
That's the point. He said because his car is mostly black, they always get the high res scans, so they can't/don't use the trickery. Clearly they do though.... not surprisingly.
NBC commentators probably, “And the NASCAR thoroughbreds are about to roar to life.”
"The big 3 are going for the trifecta."
These are great!! Mind telling me your equipment?
Thanks! D7200 and either a 24-70 or 70-200 2.8. Was going back and forth between them.
That initial Ryan Reed getting air after hitting the grass is an amazing shot! So is the 48 on Pit Road and post-wreck in the race.
Thank you! I just missed out on Cindrics flip. I was inside turn 2 at that point, and the cars came to rest just as they came into my field of view. Had it happened just a few hundred yards further around the corner I might have caught that one. Oh well.

Also bought the attached airport with plans to turn it into a road course.
I heard he wanted to buy it, but hadn't heard he actually got it. Heard he wanted to do drag races on the runway. Also heard he wants to have events and festivals there.
Dedication. Chase chugging a Mtn Dew to support his sponsors.
Hope he makes it. Very strange accident. Looks like something broke. He bobbled coming off 2, then entering 3 the thing just rolled over. But the weird part is that it rolled over to the left while entering the turn. Seems counterintuitive. No contact with anyone. I just have a hard time thinking of what might cause the car not to roll over to the right side. Probably just a freak accident. Again, hope he comes out of this ok.
Never seen a sprint car roll the opposite way entering a corner. Weird.
Yeah. And the update is that he didn't survive. Sad.
Edit: Watched the video again. Looks like maybe he clipped the end of the wall with the right rear as he started to make his arc into the corner and it started the roll in that direction. Hard to say for sure. The car didn't "jump" as if he hit it hard. But the car kind of turns right as it starts to roll as if it clipped the wall.
It's weird how my brain tried to make me think this picture is the esses at Watkins Glen.
Didn't a rider die from a crash at Isle of Man recently too? What a terrible year for moto racing.
That one rider died at the Macau (however it's spelled) Grand Prix.
And in F1, they threw the checkers early. Weird.
Ok, seriously who here doen't want clit to win?
Sadler needs to retire.
I hope if Grala gets back to the 3 that he wrecks him.
He’s a nutcase. He probably would be where Brad is if he wasn’t dumb enough to do things.
If anyone in the north east knows who he is, he’s Kelly Moore’s son.
My only experience with Ryan Moore was when he right reared my buddy at New Smyrna on the front straightaway near the end of a race. All but destroyed the car. During the ensuing red flag to clean up, my buddy (who was pissed, and rightfully so) began to head toward Ryan who was parked on the backstretch. He was stopped before he could get there. My friend says all he was going to do was reach in and rip the coil wire out of the car so that maybe Ryan couldn't finish the race at least, but who knows. Ryan went on to win the race.
So a while after the race, and once we managed to get the car loaded up, we are headed to the pay window and run into Ryan and Kelly. Things weren't too heated on our end at that point, but either my friend or the other guy with us said something about it being a dirty move, and Kelly (who looked to be a few beers in) wanted to fight about it. We didn't, although the one guy who was with us was willing to, and probably wanted to. So, I'm not a huge fan of the Moores after that experience.
Chris Myers really has a talent. Some of his one liners and jokes are a little played out. But he is really good at engaging with anyone. And he is quick on his feet, and is actually knowledgeable. I think he does a good job.
Wasn’t this the same year they had a CART race or something right after? It was a duel event ticket.
It was 2005. I went to that. Maybe they had it other years though. It was crazy how much faster the CART cars were than the trucks. I thought it was cool that for driver intros, they sent the Indy car drivers down through the stands.
Does Mike Joy know the Roval is being scored as its own track? Sooo Kyle hasn't won everywhere. ;)
Edit: Apparently I need to explicity add /s now
They haven't raced there yet..
Edit: I get that your comment wasn't serious. He's got a good chance of checking it off when they get there though.
Impressive that he has won everywhere with only 47 wins.
It was on ESPN.
Not sure. Someone earlier said something about it being moved from ABC to espn, and the response was that it was supposed to be on espn but some ABC stations were going to simulcast it? So I don't know.
Did fox ever cover this?
They made a comment about Josh Williams actually driving the car when it spun later in the race. They didn't know why Alex was not in the car, all they knew was that Josh was driving the team car and already out of the race, and for some reason was in the 36.
You can legit eat off the floors there, David Hasselhoff style.
This. is. a. mess.
Space on the C-pillar for the winners stickers could become a real problem on the 4 car this year.
Way to handle the interview by Larson.
Well that should have caved in the back window on the 42.
Well this is the only hope to keep Harvick from certain victory.
If Suarez can get to him, it will be interesting.
He clipped a car that was sitting sideways on the straightaway with the left side, and that's what shredded the body. Could have been a while lot worse had he actually made solid contact with the other car.
Big Bar Soft Springs. Referring to the sway bar and spring combination.
I would like to put $20 on Harvick please. Where do I pick up my winnings?
