Even though I wasn't a fan of NASCAR until 2007, I don't think that a Southern 500 race in the middle of May is the same as the traditional Labor Day weekend Southern 500. I'm probably not one to talk; it just doesn't seem very fitting to me. :s

I, too, would love to see that! I know it's Darrel Waltrip, but I find it hard to believe he mentioned Almirola as one of the names that could contend for the win last week just because it was a superspeedway. He's 7th in points!

I believe Almirola will be the next first time winner. However, I don't think he will win at Darlington.

More likely than not, but who knows? Regan Smith won there 2 years ago with a previous best finish of 17th.

I also did a little research; Smith and Lake Speed are the only drivers in 60+ years that have gotten their maiden wins at Darlington.

Disagree on Smith. He'll win one more time....Also he already has two wins remember!

Darlington Raceway requires driver skill more than anything. Regan Smith got his first win at that track 2 years ago so I don't why Almirola should get his first win their too.

their first pole since the spring Talladega race in 2008.

Kurt is having the best week so far, did an Indycar test and now has the pole for the Cup race.

Good job Kurt, way to turn your career around!

I feel like a bad person for not wanting Busch to succeed because he's definitely earning his comeback. I just still don't like him at all.

Matt Kenseth is the best driver in NASCAR.

And that's two years in a row the Southern 500 has failed to produce any sort of buzz. Other than Kahne getting the slightest of bumps from Boosh while racing for the lead, this race was kind of...... meh.

The Bojangles Southern 500 @ Darlington gets a 3.5/10.

I'm fine with Darlington having one date. I just think that date should be on Labor Day Weekend.
