    we did alright with predictions peanut, we both got 3/4 correct. :thumb:
    That was a fun race. Add rain and make it a night race.

    Part of me can see why Johnson did what he did. I guess the need to win takes over logic.

    And Larson should have learned a big lesson. Never give up (at one point, he said "why continue?"). I think my favorite part of the race was watching the 42 slam into this wall, slam into that wall, cross the finish line to go onto the next round.

    Sad that the 20 didn't make it.

    3/4 is pretty good.

    • Got to feel so bad for almirola at this point because it seems like he is snake bitten or something...

      that had to be about the 3rd race this year that he had won but for something happening like a late caution or bad pitstop or something else...i thought they should have stayed out under the last caution, was only going to be about 5 or 6 laps to the finish

        Watched it tonight. He'll get his wins. At least he's in good equipment and with a good team.

        Weird stuff happening to the #48. Years like this humbles a person.

          I haven't watched the sport for like two years, as a Johnson hater, I enjoyed watching him eliminate himself from the chase. That was hilarious, especially since it came down to Larson's beat up car bouncing repeatedly off the wall to hobble its way past Jeffery Earnhardt.

          • I was concerned about this possibility. Prayers to Wickens and family.

            I'm not posting a link to the article because Yahoo changes them so much.

            IndyCar driver Robert Wickens has announced on his Instagram account that he’s paralyzed from the waist down.

            Wickens said in his post:

            “Did my first slide transfer as a paraplegic today. My upper body is getting stronger and stronger and hopefully I’ll be able to do it unassisted soon. I’ve only been posting videos of the small movement in my legs, but the reality is I am far away from walking on my own. Some people are a bit confused with the severity of my injury, so I wanted let you know the reality of it. I’ve never worked harder for anything in my life, and I am giving it all I’ve got to spark those nerves in my legs.”



            The 29-year-old Wickens suffered major critical injuries after being involved in a horrific crash August 19 in the early laps of the IndyCar race at Pocono Raceway. His car flew up into the catchfence, spun several times in mid-air and landed hard against the inside retaining wall.

            • I heard that the team is not going to appeal the penalties.

              The No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing team has been issued an L1-level penalty following driver Kevin Harvick’s win Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway, an infraction that carries major championship implications in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

              The team violated Section 20.4.12 of the NASCAR Rule Book that is specific to spoilers. Spoilers must be used exactly as supplied from the manufacturer and not altered. The infraction was discovered in post-race tear down at the NASCAR Research & Development Center.

              As a result, Harvick has been docked 40 driver points and the team loses 40 owner points as well. Harvick’s win at Texas no longer automatically qualifies the team for the Championship 4 in Miami. He will enter this weekend’s Round of 8 finale fourth among eight playoff drivers in the standings, three points above the cutline – should there be a tie for the final transfer spot, Harvick cannot use the Texas win in the tiebreaking procedure.

              Additionally, both crew chief Rodney Childers and car chief Robert Smith have been suspended for the next two races – ISM Raceway at Phoenix and the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Childers also has been fined $75,000.
              I feel bad for Johnson. They've had such a bad year, they really didn't need NASCAR to have a breakdown in communication that resulted in them starting from the back.

                I can't ever feel bad for Johnson, he's like the Raiders of Nascar racing.

                • Sucks for harvick & the #4 team but i honestly don't think it will matter, i think he will be more determined than ever & go out there & win at phoenix which happens to be his best track overall with 9 wins including earlier this season.

                  yeah the track has been reconfigured & all but i don't think it will make a difference...only thing that keeps the 4 team from advancing would be crash/mechanical failure or something along those lines.

                  i also still believe he wins at all at homestead.

                    3 out of 4 for both of us. Joey messed us up.

                    I'm going with Kyle. Surprised?

                      Yeah no surprise with the big 3 although it was dicey for harvick & of course i knew you were for kyle :thumb:

                      That was some race yesterday, filled with drama & i bet a lot of nervous people...hell i was nervous for harvick after he had the flat, but i always said that would be the only way he didn't make the final four was some sort of problem.

                      tough break for kurt to end that way because he had a strong car & also how bout almirola? didn't expect him to challenge & threaten that much...bright future for that 10 team

                        The flat happened so early in the race, I figured he would be okay (as long as there wasn't significant damage to the car). They did good by not panicking. It wasn't a must win for them.

                        Too bad for Kurt and the #9. Almirola has done really well. Last year, the 10 was like a mid-20's team.

                          • I'm out of the loop, just heard about the Silver Fox. RIP indeed. He was great for the sport and all those around him.

                            • Happy for Moffitt winning the Truck championship. I like it when underdogs win. Hope the team and Moffitt can continue next year.

                              I wanted Bell in Xfinity. Not totally unhappy that Reddick won, though. Apparently, he was the underdog in that series. Kind of odd since he drives for Jr.

                              PA, I think you know how I feel about Joey. If Kyle couldn't win, I was pulling for Truex (more for Furniture Row Racing, since it was their last race).

                              Logano is one of those drivers that I like at times and dislike at other times. Nice that it was his first championship and he won for Penske.

                              Someone said that this was the results under the classic points system:

                              1) @KyleBusch 1434 pts
                              2) @KevinHarvick -48
                              3) @MartinTruex_Jr -170
                              4) @joeylogano -187
                              5) @KurtBusch -218
                              6) @keselowski -282
                              7) @KyleLarsonRacin -328
                              8) @chaseelliott -332
                              9) @ClintBowyer -358
                              10) @Blaney -368

                              David Light:

                              Usually I relied on Jayski, but he stopped doing them after 2016. I did the same thing last year to keep track. After each race, Jayski posts race results that show how many points each driver earned. Take total points from race before Playoffs and keep a running total.

                              • I think I'm content with sliced bread getting his first championship. I'd have rather have seen Furniture Row go out on top, but I can live with Joey.
