He sure did,raider! Can't believe it took them that long to put it out. That stuff was flowing like water out there right by the fuel intake tube. I kept thinking when are they going to extinguish that.

Last I seen on Facebook was that Newman is awake and talking. They haven’t said anything else but it’s way better news than what I was expecting last night. I can still remember 19 years ago when Mike Helton gave the announcement for Dale. So glad we didn’t get that news again.

Real good news. Just wonder if he will rest up a bit before racing again? Miss a couple races?

He’s out this weekend. They already announced Chastain is driving the 6

I figured he wouldn't climb back in the car right away, but glad he's ok. Hate to see anybody lose their life or injured in anyway. That crash was a violent one. I hate seeing them.

What do you guys think of some of the changes to the car next year? Getting rid of the H-Pattern 4 speed and going to a 6 speed sequential gearbox, getting rid of 15 inch 5 lug wheels and switching to 18 inch aluminum one lug wheels, and rumors are that sponsors want the number moved from the door. I’m not a fan of any of the changes. They are taking away parts of the sport that I’ve grown up watching to try to gain casual fans who watch occasionally when they are bored instead of the people like me who tune in every weekend to watch and spend 100s of dollars on tickets each year. Just my opinion

He does seem fine though, must still be a little shaken up. We probably won’t see him in the car for a while I’m guessing.

NASCAR returning May 17. Running I believe Darlington Sunday and Wednesday and Charlotte Sunday and Wednesday after that. Chicagoland and Sonoma lost there race date this year and Richmond lost a spring race. Also Ryan Newman will be back in the 6 car

It will be interesting to see how NASCAR handles social distancing as they resume racing. I no longer care for the sport but I will watch to see how the logistics are handled.

They seem to be doing okay with it. Post race celebration is kinda weird and not as many interviews, but other than that the racing’s been good. I like this no practice and qualifying they’ve been doing though

Yeah, the starting position by draw makes it a more interesting race.

And inverting the top 20 for the Wednesday race. See some driver up front who usually aren’t. Also Chase beat Kyle Busch in the truck race and won the bounty of $100,000 to charity. Kyle wasn’t happy. Might be a new rivalry haha
