Menard should have held on to his car. JJ didn't hit him that hard. Menard's not a real good driver IMO.

Johnson took out 16 cars.  The Clash is a joke.  Now I know why they no longer run it on Saturday night and call it the Bud Shootout.

 48 car pulled out, got loose and right into the 21. 21 car did not go down, even the view from the 1 right behind them shows that.

Johnson just trying out new ways to win a race.

Watching this Unrivaled special on Earnhardt vs. Gordon makes me wonder..... was that the peak of NASCAR?  Or is it actually better now and I'm stuck in the nostalgia?

Those were the days just before the mile and a halfs were all built and there were more short/medium tracks.

And Nascar hadn't started trying to turn the drivers into politically-correct, non-aggressive lifeforms.

That race last night was marred by young inexperienced drivers doing what young inexperienced drivers do. Those trucks are evil in those packs and the young and inexperienced couldn't handle it.

Xfinity wasn't too exciting.  Other than a couple of fleeting moments in P5, I don't think the Top-5 changed for the last 35 laps.

I don't get all those guys protecting their 7th place finish over 15th instead of trying to win. The bottom could go when organized but all those guys that would not risk going down there should be getting kicked in the pants for not trying to win.

After a boring weekend of single-file runs in the top groove, all of a sudden the bottom line is dominant early on.

Stenhouse took the lead on the bottom groove, moved to the top row, and lost the lead to Matt DiBenedetto.

Bubba Wallace, Kurt Busch, Jamie McMurray all damaged.

Kurt tried to pull down in front of Stenhouse but didn't quite have him cleared.

Harvick was getting tired of complaining about Stenhouse in front of him.  Stenhouse moved around too much for the line behind him to be able to build any momentum.  A lesson learned in the first stage is that tires make a HUGE difference.

With how Stenhouse is Stenhouse'ing, a lot of drivers are hoping he doesn't run out of luck.

Nice small one.  Stenhouse damaged, but surprisingly didn't cause it.  The 52 and 51 got tied up when one looked to be trying to pit.  The 48 with a lot of damage too.

Perfectly-timed caution.  With 20 to go, the entire field was running in a single line on the top side.

Shocking that with 50 laps to go they were running 2- and 3-wide all the way back.

Harvick and Logano avoided it by a hair.

The JD Gibbs emotional story is too much.  Nascar is arranging snipers around the  track right now in case anyone else feels like being the spoiler.

Wow, Kyle Busch had a full car-length lead over 2nd place when the race restarted.

Who cares, another caution.  There's #3 of the above prediction.

Harvick got caught up in that one, $@$!^*!!!!!!!.

Stenhouse's stupid ass is an accident waiting to happen on these tracks.  It's no wonder that dumb$*%! has trouble finding drafting partners.  No surprise Danica left him, he couldn't get to the finish with her either.
