More evidence that SMASHCAR is a joke. Bowyer's crew chief gets suspended while JG gets essentially nothing,lol. Gotta have those ratings and butts in the seats.

Somehow I don't think a 100K hit has much effect on someone that makes in excess of 20 million per year.

Crash on, SMASHCAR!!!

I will continue to support real racing-sprint cars, local late models, and sportsman drag racing. I hope others will do the same thing.

Agreed, I've turned to watching golf for more excitement.
I wonder if Danica and Joanna Long will ever get into a cat fight...

Bowyer crew chief Brian Pattie was fined $25,000 and placed on probation through the end of the year.

What I don't get is that Boyer, after being told with plenty of time that JG was waiting to take him out, didn't slow, fake high then just power by him low. Maybe he was playing a little chicken?

CB knew CB screwed up and CB was looking to get by JG without being noticed and get back to CB trailer and hide. But it didn't work, JG nailed him anyway.

unless it is a soap opera staged incident to bump up headlines and ratings....
It is the marketing/ propaganda guys with support of the accountants / bean counters who control NASCAR now.

Been mentioned above this used to happen with the 'old guys' yep it did, but the big difference was these days they always have camera crews right there basically setup as if premempted....even given these days the camera coverage is hugely better, but not that better..

If you want to see real racing watch the ALMS (American LeMans) next season. 5 (that's Five) classes of racing cars on the track at the same time and they turn left AND right! Constant passing and lead changes, takes real skill to drive with so many disparate groups.

And the nice thing about ALMS is they race in the rain...

My solution is if you don't like it, don't watch it. Easy...

That is my solution, too, and that is why I wrote that I support real racing-like sprint cars, local late models, and sportsman drag racing.

Perhaps you missed that post?

I like NASCAR. Fun to watch. Big JJ fan and my wife likes TS so we have a little friendly rivalry going on.

Took my wife to the Petty Ride Along. She rode 170 mph + 6" from the wall at Vegas Speedway. Had a great time. LOL she's grabbing handles when I just go a little strong thru a couple gears in my cars.

I also take my Vette once a year where we do a few paced laps for Children's Charity on the track.

I will tell you this. We ran about 110 single file in the turns and I really gained some respect for the guys doing it 2 and 3 wide at 200 mph. The banks are literally 3 stories high and I can only imagine the drivers rush when they swoop down.

That does sound like fun, and I bet it is a rush for anyone doing it. David Pearson was doing a 6-lap 'ride along' at Darlington a few years ago. He was running about half a second off the lap times of the Cup guys that particular year-wish I could have gone around The Lady in Black but my schedule didn't jive with the dates he was there.

Great Fun. Another friend did the Rookie Experience where you actually drive yourself.

You can always go to the Petty schools in Darlington or Charlotte. But Always a good excuse to come to Vegas.

We watch more dragracing around here instead of NASCRAP. It's getting way to silly.

I can't see what you guys are complaining about. Ever since there has been NASCAR there has been fights and retaliation on the track. The big problems I see NASCAR having is there are too many races in a season and they are too long. There is no reason other then track profits to have two races at the same track in one season. Look at the attendance at the Texas track, it was really bad. It was the second race at Texas and the fans can't afford or want to see two races there in one year.
I pretty much like all kinds of circle track racing. The open wheel racers more then the stocks. Then on dirt is better then anything.

There used to be 50 or more races a year, and when the sport was pretty much regional to the Southeastern US we had lots of tracks with 2 races a year, attendance was good then.

People build the tracks to make a profit, believe it or not. And I'm with ya on the dirt track racing, especially WoO.
