Nascar at Watkins Glen

Even if you hate Nascar, watching them drive at the Glen is very entertaining. Xfinity race is today at 3pm est, Monster series tomorrow same time.

They are already driving themselves into the barriers.

Crazy race as usual with stupid drivers, many mistakes, rain and a few attitudes. Almendinger who made a huge mistake near the end of the race came back from a lap down, to 23rd, then finished 2nd. During the rain issues he was remarkable how well he was driving putting over 3 seconds between him and the others. Logano won barely over Keslowski who spun out at the end but to me Almendinger was amazing. marcus Ambrose use to be one of my favorites and Almendinger did him proud with his road course abilities. He should be driving IMSA,Indy or even Formula series with his abilities.

Monster cup race waas great as Kyle led early on. Elliot took over and he battled with Kyle but late race it was Truex chasing Elliot and running out of gas right at the end, good race.

Tomorrow at 2PM EST they will be racing on the Charlotte road course which should be interesting given they are in the playoffs.

Yeah, I actually am hoping to remember to program that to record. Should be interesting, because the "ro" part of the roval part of that course is NOT very wide...

I expect that you're right.

I actually just started watching the recording, although it's actually just about over.

Not as exciting so far as I expected.

Nothing really happened till the end then Keselowski crashed into the wall and took out a lot of drivers then Johnson took out himself and Truex letting Blaney win the race. Overall boring till the end. Love this kind of racing with Nascar. Rovals could be the future.
