    Is it me or was the atlanta race a little strange.especially the crew guy running almost on to the track after the loose tire and put over half the field a lap down because of the caution.I know it killed me on my fantasy league team.I dont think it would have changed the outcome as far as the winner goes cause kurt bush and his team was in the zone but it could have changed the way the rest of the field finished the race.
    Ive never seen that happen before.

    They should let them chase tires all down the front stetch above the yellow line.
    It might make for some better racing.
    It's pretty bad when the "race topic" is about a guy chasing a tire rather then the cars on the tracks.
    Yea, NASCAR has done a fabulous job.

    I agree with you guys its pretty sad when the highlight from the race is a crew member chasing a tire.I hate to be a party pooper but everysince they switched to the crap cars oh i mean cot cars i dont think the racing has been as good.Now they wont let them test,there killing racing i think.And have you noticed the stupid rule for the trucks where you cant come in and get tires and fuel on the same stop?they have to go back around and come back in.whats that all about i think thats about the dumbest rule yet.Anyway thanks for letting me vent a little i feel better now i got that off my chest:wink:

    With any luck NASCAR will impose a mandatory bathroom break for the driver between changing left side and right side tires.
    Hopefully they'll have to push a roll of toilet paper with their nose from the portajon back to the car.

    That should give the talking heads in the booth something to comentate on besides explaining loose and tight over and over and over.
