  • Nascar - And Then There Were 12 - ATM Playoff Round At Charlotte

    After the cut race at Dover, 12 remaining contenders will be trying to race into the next round starting at Charlotte. A win by any will give a free pass while the 4 lowest in points will be eliminated in 2 weeks, just as Newman, ADillon, Kahne and Busch41 were.

    Along with Cup on Sunday, X-Men will attempt to race on Saturday. Attempt because Nate The Hurricane will probably have something to say about that. Weather doesn't look so good right now.

    40 in the entry list, a full field for qualifying and here is MRN's dry weather schedule;

    News and Notes
    • New rules for 2018 have been released - Spilitter and oil coolers are now standard. Also ride-height rule for super speedways Dega and Daytona is eliminated. On a safety note, data recorders will be running the entire race, not at the moment of impact.
    • Formula 1 TV is moving from NBC to ABC/ESPN - No cable junk, all broadcast next year.
    • Dover penalties - Only a couple of cars with 1 loose nut. Just fines.
    • TV ratings for Dover - 1.3/2M viewers and 2016 was 1.6/2.5M. 2015 was 1.9/3.2M and 2014 was 2.3/3.8M.

    Charlotte may be a fun race. In the first practice, Junior with the keys for a Yellow Vette in his pocket, hit the outside wall. He said the upper groove was treated with "track grip" and it's like oil. Jr. is going to his backup. He was 2nd fastest at that point. Hope the Vette keys weren't bent.

    Keso hit the wall later and then my fave driver was called to the Nascar hauler for the way he went down pit road. He later hit the wall. Viva La Twerp!

    No word on backups yet for the #2 and #18. Looking for some video of The Twerp being The Twerp.

        Qualifying results - Hamlin, Kenseth, Harvick, The Twerp, Bowyer, Keso, Elliott, Busch41, Kahne, Larson, Newman and Danica.

        7 of the top 12 are players and kinda interesting that 3 of the eliminees from Dover made the final round of Q'ing - Busch41, Kahne and Newman.

                  Missed the start of the Cup race. I don't know why? It isn't far to Charlotte and we were in the midst of a 2"+ rain dump from Nate. :duh:

                  Newman is smoking bad after spinning and eating the wall. Looks like Bowyer got a piece of the #31, too. 1st real yellow on lap 45.
