    GM Certified Mechanic

    200 Wins

    Kyle Busch got his 200th win today. In this day of racing this is unbelievable. Haters will hate, so be it. To me he is the best racecar driver I've ever seen.

    Just watched the last segment of qualifying. Last group took off too late and "nobody" made it back to the starting line for a timed lap. So this is what NASCAR has sunk to. Embarrassing.

    Boring NASCAR Sprintcup All Star Race

    Cars are too equal for a 1.5 mile track. Richmond would be a lot better. OR....... If keeping it at Charlotte I would suggest the following... 1. Any compression ratio in the engine. 2. Any angle on rear spoiler. 3. Any rear gear ratio. Put some "Hot Rod" back into the cars for one race.
