      I'm sitting here watching the Duel races and realized we have threads for Sportscar racing, Indy, and F1 but nothing for Murrica's greatest carbureted left hand turning stadium of speed.

      Let's fix that with a (possibly?) unpopular opinion. I think the #3 should be retired, or at the very least, not run in a Black, Silver, Red livery again. I don't care who owns the car and who's nephew is driving it, it's kind of disrespectful to see it out there.




      That being said, growing up a SR and Rusty Wallace fan, I don't have any real attachment to the #2 car anymore, so I may as well cheer Austin Dillon on

      But they aren't carbed anymore.

      Edit: I do tend to agree with retiring #3, but at the same time #43 isn't retired and still being used by Bubba Wallace, so perhaps it isn't really in NASCAR's interest to retire numbers.

      What is the top series called this year anyways?

      This is the last year for this spec car, so expect some rules-stretching. Soon there will be sequential shifters, rear diffusers, and cars that resemble Australian V8 supercars.

      This race is a snooze fest compared to 20 years ago.

      I tried to watch (which I have not done in many years) but have better things to do.

      POTUS parade lap, give me a break.

      It really doesn't matter since it's broken up into segments.

      It needs passes in the grass and a few fist fights.

      And many wrecks.

      Yeah, it seemed more like a campaign stop for MAGA.

      The most American thing i've seen in a few years, there were a lot of Muricans there, being American. Very proud of all the Muricans.

      Watched that second hit several times now, and after watching the entire chassis flex . That was one hell of a hit. Damn.

      They finally just showed the replay. LaJoie went right through the area of the car where Newman's head would've been. Initially I was like oh man he turned over when he hit the wall but never had any idea he got hit after.

      That doesn't look good. Not at all.
