I actually remembered that Ragan was unusually fast in practice at Bristol last fall, but only now did I learn that he was the fastest in practice!

Maybe Front Row can get another top 10 this weekend. Ragan did finish 12th in that race, granted there were some large crashes near the end.

It's also sort of an inside joke as well. Razz

Xxxtreme Motorsports decided they were too xxxtreme for Bristol, so they withdrew. This exchange also occurred over Twitter:

Andrew Marsh ‏@marshandrew16 19h
@Xxxtremeracing why are you guys not running Bristol now,was it sponsors or getting ready for Auto Club or what?

@marshandrew16 Some Change with Crew Members and preparing cars a little different.

This may end being a Monday race from the sounds of things. Which means I may not be able to hear anything about this race until Thursday Sad

Something tells me there was a big issue that came up when they were going through tech inspection.

Timmy Hill is the Dennis Vitolo of NASCAR. I could have done a better job at avoiding that.

Also, Cole Whitt just wrecked himself. In no way is that Danica's fault, even though blaming Danica is the popular thing to do.

Timmy Hill, you no-good, rotten, four-flushing, low-life, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, dickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-ass, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, spotty-lipped, worm-headed sack of monkey shit.

EDIT: Kenseth has gone from 30th to 24th since the restart. This better mean he's still got something.

Anyway, anyone knows of a good live stream to use since FOX doesn't want to show the race? I got a live stream from FOX Sports 1 but it's laggy.

On an unrelated note, why does the FOX team keep calling the second-tier series the "Nationwide In-surance race"?

Hey, I might emphasize my own username in this context. Though I admit that move was a lot like something I would have done online in NR2003.

It still sucks that we've been screwed over by a backmarker. Stick to start-and-parking and iRacing, Timmy.

The caution was either for the caution light malfunction or the rain, but it wouldn't have mattered because it started pouring soon after. I don't know what to think of that, mostly because I was listening to the radio broadcast and they weren't saying it started raining until just about a minute after the caution came out...

On that note, one of the commentators said that the conspiracy theorists are gonna have a field day. I couldn't have said it better.

Also, first four races with four different winners? I like that. Now if we can just get a first time winner into victory lane.

Or Kenseth, because that works too... [/fanboy]

Pretty fun race. Best race of the Nascar season, Whether it be fun with laps cars actual racing or hilarious moments.

Bizarre end to that one with the caution lights malfunctioning.

I don't know what to think of that, mostly because I was listening to the radio broadcast and they weren't saying it started raining until just about a minute after the caution came out...

On that note, one of the commentators said that the conspiracy theorists are gonna have a field day. I couldn't have said it better.

Also, first four races with four different winners? I like that. Now if we can just get a first time winner into victory lane.

Or Kenseth, because that works too... [/fanboy]

Yep... This week, Carl Edwards is the beneficiary of NASCAR... after Dale Jr. was the beneficiary of NASCAR... after Jimmie Johnson has been the beneficiary of NASCAR... after...

NASCAR never said anything over the radio about the caution coming out when the caution lights went on, though, so I'm inclined to believe that was the actual problem. And from as far as I can tell, rain was out of the question at that point. If it weren't for the caution lights, I think they could've made it the last 30 seconds.

It's certainly unusual though that the caution lights would come on then and there without an explanation, though. But it's also happened before at Vegas, just much earlier in the race. I don't think there was any sort of conspiracy at play here.

The only thing that is funnier then this race, is who is the top 16 in points currently.

Definitely a weird ass race, this one was. Shenanigans on pit road, rain rain rain, guys you normally don't see at the front of the field, and the caution lights coming on with two laps to go... with no explanation why. Yep, we're at Bristol. Laughing

Good win for Carl, and he needed it badly. It's been quite a while since he last won a Cup race. Good runs by Stenhouse and Almirola.

The 2014 Food City 500 @ Bristol gets a 7.0/10. The rain delay sucked, and there were some parts that were kind of meh, but overall, this was a pretty solid race. Bristol seems to be the only track to put on good shows consistently right now. That and Phoenix. And the roadies.

Next race is.... California. Oh, budday. Is this race gonna go back to the shitastic racing its known for, or will it surprise us like last year's race did?

It sucks for Kenseth, Harvick, Truex, Stenhouse and Almirola, though.

Kenseth got nailed by a backmarker, got sent all the way back to 30th, worked his way back to the lead, only to hit the wall in the late stages while leading and finished 13th. For both Harvick and Truex, that's the second mechanical problem they've had all year. And had Mother Nature held out long enough to get us to a green-white-checkered, we might have seen either Stenhouse or Almirola as a first time winner.

Good win, Edwards. You were running away with it on that last run; you deserved it.

I think my sides imploded when I read this... What the hell...?

Anyway, the race was good. Missed the finish, but Edwards had a great car and deserved to win it.

According to NASCAR, there is a manual override switch on the flagstand at the track that, if the flagman sees a reason to hit it, will turn some of the track caution lights on. NASCAR says that this switch was hit, and then the flagman noticed it and waved the yellow. It is unknown who actually hit the button though.

After a $hit 2013, Ambrose has his first top 5 since the 2012 Bristol night race funnily enough. Bristol is the only oval where he has multiple top 5's. Could be a chance in the fall race. In the a pretty god day for RPM, Almirola gets his career best finish of 3rd.

But hitting Bowyer in the pits was 100% her fault. Would you give out a penalty if that sought of pit lane contact happened in the Master Cup Cy? Cause I do think she at the very least needs to be fined for that stupidity
