    really nice job nascar

    on the other hand i saw a golf outing on nbc & my oh my, the complete opposite...not a single person had a mask on & i did not see them distancing much at all. i hope they get criticized over that because compared to how nascar did it, that was a bad look on golf.
    NASCAR did a great job. You can tell that they put a lot of thought and research into it.

    Didn't really miss the crowd during the race with the engine noises and all. But the silence during Harvick's interview. So weird.

    Xfinity moved up to 6PM from 8PM because of possible rain. Storm coming up the coast.

    i think despite no fans at the track, this will be an absolute major tv ratings draw because they are the first to jump back in & i hope it's a big success!
    I agree. People are needing sports.

    I've enjoyed the iRacing. IndyCar, NASCAR and the Wednesday dirt tracks / IROC. It's not so much the "racing" but the behind the scenes look at the drivers. Although I enjoy the "crashes" more because no one gets hurt. Gordon's car stuck in the catch fence.

    Well that was smart of him... I am guessing he's done. Sponsors have all cut ties, Ganassi fired him...

    I've been following this all day. I'm surprised and disappointed. I mean, he comes from the Drive for Diversity program (or whatever it's called).

    He lost two main sponsors. Coke quietly dropped him early this year for a reason they're not revealing.

    Thing I don't understand is that he was talking to his spotter. Usually, drivers are friends with their spotters.

    Kyle Larson has been suspended indefinitely

    Chip Ganassi Racing driver Kyle Larson has been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR following his use of a racial slur on a live stream during an iRacing event Sunday night.

    The behavioral penalty NASCAR issued Monday cited Sections 12.1 (General Procedures) and 12.8 (NASCAR Member Conduct Guidelines) of the official Rule Book. Larson must also attend sensitivity training as directed by NASCAR.

    “NASCAR has made diversity and inclusion a priority and will not tolerate the type of language used by Kyle Larson during Sunday’s iRacing event,” a NASCAR statement read. “Our Member Conduct Guidelines are clear in this regard, and we will enforce these guidelines to maintain an inclusive environment for our entire industry and fan base.”


    Larson later posted a video on his social media handles, apologizing for his actions.

    I'm enjoying it.

    FS1 is doing a weekly series of iRacing (Wednesday). This week is World of Outlaws.

    The bad part of racing. He seems to be doing really good.
