Great run by C.Buescher!

Good race, better than the IndyCar race here.

Absolutely brilliant drive by Chris Buescher, his strategy and his Fuel saving plan worked out perfectly. I was rooting for Brian Scott earlier in the Race but then he and Alex Tagliani came to blows. Overall, a pretty good Race, a bit more cleaner than last year's race which is better in my opinion.

Chris Buescher has actually probably the most underrated driver in Nationwide this year. To be that far up in points with one missed race is a massive effort from a rookie. If only a certain other rookie with a very similar career path would patient and drive steady like Chris (I'm looking at you Dyl).

Career best finish for Dakota Armstrong.

Looks like today's Michigan race will be under threat of rain. And I'm told there's already an 80% chance of rain for Bristol.

You know, in my experience, I don't recall there ever being a NASCAR season that was so often threatened by rain as the current one is. Not even 2009 was this bad.

But the races that have been effected by rain this year have had balls to the wall racing.

I just looked at multiple websites, the biggest threat of rain is indicated by the Weather Channel at 60%, but they are based out of Georgia and know almost nothing cause their predictions are so more out there then everyone else.

It's turning into a yellowfest now. Besides this streak of yellow it's been a pretty solid race.

Pretty solid race overall. Good job by Gordon to earn victory #91. If he's able to maintain this pace, he could get to the precious century mark, and he just might get to David Pearson... maybe.

The Pure Michigan 400 gets a 6.0/10.

Honest contender for worse race of the year, It seemed like the race peaked at lap 40 with some small excitement for 3 laps near the end.

Dude, let's be honest here. No race is beating the Coca-Cola 600 for worst race of the year.

And besides, this race wasn't that bad. To each his own, I guess.

Honestly Coke 600 wasn't good, but it was better than the year before so that really saved it. There wasn't a lot to redeem this race.
