  • During presser, Carl Edwards said he is walking away because he is become satisfied with his career, he has other interests outside of racing, and his health is a concern. He said he is totally health but racing is dangerous and he wants to protect himself and his health.

    Edwards did say he would be open to racing again but not full time.

      The new 2018 race car model, which will be used starting in the 2017 season,
      was unveiled Monday during the North American International Auto Show
      held at the Cobo Center in Detroit.

      I like it.

      Yes, there's an echo in here.

      there has to be more to this story than just to pursue other interests
      I was hoping that JGR wasn't "pushing" him out. I don't think that's how they work, but I know it's a business. Seems that Gibbs was surprised when he first found out.

      JGR has a lot of good drivers coming up. It's like "next driver up", you know? I kind of wish Jones got this ride instead of Suarez.

      He isnt a favorite driver of mine but I certainly dont dislike him either. He makes racing better and I hate to see him step away. Ive seen reports step away from the word "retiring" and are now pretty much just saying that Edwards wont race in 2017. So maybe, hopefully, Carl Edwards will be back in 2018 or 2019.
      He did leave it open for next year. This would have put a lot of teams in a bad place.

      • UPDATE: NASCAR is expected to announce Monday that it will change how it awards points during a race. NASCAR is expected to divide races into segments, and drivers would get points depending on their running order at the end of each segment, according to industry sources. The news conference Monday will detail the new points distribution system with the goal that drivers will have to compete for spots early in the event rather than having the option to bide their time until the end of the race before making a move. NASCAR currently awards points on a 40-to-1 scale from the highest to the lowest finisher among its 40 drivers. A driver who wins gets three bonus points, while a driver who leads a lap gets one bonus point and the driver who leads the most laps gets an additional bonus point. The way a driver qualifies to get into NASCAR's version of its playoffs - the regular-season champion and then 15 drivers based on wins with points as the tiebreaker - is not expected to change. NASCAR also has explored ways to make regular-season performance more meaningful in the playoffs, with the current format allowing drivers to carry over their bonus points from wins only into the first round.

        This is why I barely watch NASCAR now, stop changing stuff!!!!! This whole thing sounds dumb. Yes I haven't posted here in a while. Maybe this is why Carl is done, he can't take this crap anymore lol

          Announcement at 6PM.

          I understand that they're looking to try to get new viewers, but with too many changes, they're going to lose the "old-timers".

          I do like that they're trying to prevent the "pack at the back" at restrictor plates. I know why the drivers do that and I can't blame them, but it would be nice to see everyone racing from the start.

          It'll be interesting to see how it works out.

              • Im not loving all of the rule changes. Eliminating a bonus point for leading a lap is fine with me. Its to easy of an achievement during a race to be rewarded for doing it. Im not sure I like eliminating a bonus point for leading the most laps as I think that deserves some recognition.

                I certainly do not like predetermined stopping of the race (throwing a caution) 2 separate times mid race. I understand they wanna award points at the end of each segment, but why stop the race to do it? Just let the drivers keep racing and when a determined point in the race arrives, simply note who the top 10 are, award them, and let them to continue racing. You dont need to stop the race to figure out who is running first through tenth.

                Also, are they gonna eliminate competition cautions now that threes an automatic caution after segment 1? If they keep competition cautions then cautioning the race after 25 laps and then again just a handful of laps later at the end of segment 1 is just stupid.

                I dont mind so much that bonus points are awarded during a race but i HATE that theyre carried over to the playoff. The bonus points should just be added to their regular season point total only and thats it. No carrying over to the playoff. I hate it.

                    • Phoenix International Raceway is getting a make over, and I like it. The start/finish line is being moved from the straight away to just before the dogleg, and pit road is being moved from only on the straight away to partly on the straight away and stretching around to what is now turn 3 & 4 (old turn 1 & 2). This will create some interesting strategy and racing coming to the checkered flag. Addition grandstands will be added too as well as some removed.

                        There's going to be some interesting finishes with the start/finish line coming off a turn like that.

                              I saw your name in the NASCAR thread and thought, What's he doing in here.

                              About Tomlinson. I guess they couldn't find anyone else.

                              Okay. Okay. I'm putting myself in the corner. This isn't Smack and mine is weak because I don't smack.

                              Nice write up. Good work with the DAV. Should be an interesting movie. I like Sparks.

                              I like your sig and avy. I'm glad you're sticking with your team.

                                I guess it's because they want to promote LT's and Jordan Sparks' new movie.
                                I'm ok if he gets in the HOF if all 3 of our Broncos get in too.
                                If you tune in to watch LT start the race, why not watch the whole thing, you may enjoy it.
                                You can follow NASCAR all the way to the next NFL season.
