Apparantly they just had a Debris for caution.

It was a damn good race. Damn good.

Would've liked to have seen Martin finish higher. Too bad for Reed Sorenson, too.

Reed was a longshot at best. It would have been cool to see him win, but it would have never been a 'real' win in his own eyes. Being the only car NOT to stop for a splash of fuel and make it on fumes was a big gamble, but then again, nothing to lose.

The broadcasting misques were due to the handoff from TNT back to NBC for the rest of the races. NBC needed a warmup. I guess tonights race was that for them.

I really hate having to search for the race every sunday between the 3 or 4 who show it. Could have the DVR record it, but that'll take a lot of space if i use the HD channels we try to watch network shows on.

Yeah i watched the first half, worked on homework for a while, then flipped back just before dale came in. DVR got it, but i wasn't terribly wanting to see the rest of it? Glad to see he got 2nd, those tires he picked up (how long was he on them? I was surprised he got new rubber with 11 laps).

I guess i've gotten used to the Formula 1 races as well. They do have their own mistakes, but overall it'* a fairly good presentation, jumping enough, but focusing on all the main stories. The big problem i have with Formula 1 broadcasts is that the feed is sent to the commentators at the race, and they can't look into anything on their own. Nascar'* almost boring now after watching every race of the Formula 1 season this year. However, the Race for the chase winding down is bringing me back to Nascar, and i'm sure i'll keep up in the next 11.

Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch can both go take a long drive off a short pier as far as I'm concerned. The Busch brothers are both little spoiled ********, and have very few friends in the garage.

Kahne, Martin, Junior, or Jeff Burton for the win in my book.

Mark Martin finished second to Dale Sr. at least 2 times, maybe three in the past. It would be good to see him go out with a bang, and finally get one.
