yeah, that was a great last two laps

I'm glad for Stenhouse, he's an ok dude.

I'm also glad 18 got beat. Was pumped when Stenhouse held him off.

good race.

11 cars failed to pass prequalifying inspection today (plus another who missed with an engine change). Some big names, Jr, Jimmie, Boyer, Kayne. NASCAR said the machine is calibrated properly and that the teams are "pushing the limits" on their set-ups.

First night race of the year tomorrow!

Thinking back to the stage discussion following Daytona...at Talladega the first stage ended at lap 55, they went green again at lap 63 losing 8 potential green flag laps on a 2.66 mile track. Stage 2 ended at lap 110 and they went green at lap 117. So, if the race had been run under last year's rules and if there was not a caution that would've otherwise put the race under yellow, we lost a potential of combined 15 laps of green flag racing. I don't mind the stage concept really, but still hate losing laps of actual racing.

I think in the interview I heard he says he was told they sell hemp oil that was legal in 50 states. Also said his wife handles that stuff. NASCAR no approve.

NASCAR Marijuana Sponsor Force Removed from Car by Series
Colorado-based Veedverks removed from NASCAR car

May 12, 2017 by Racing News
Colorado-based Veedverks removed from NASCAR car driven by Carl Long – NASCAR didn’t approve Marijuana vaping company

Carl Long has been banned from the NASCAR Cup Series garage since 2009. He walked into the MENCS garage for the first time in nearly a decade. Instantly, he’s was already in trouble, on his first weekend back. Before he could even get to tech inspection.

NASCAR sponsorship is hard to come by, especially for the mid-pack runners. Carl Long and MBM Motorsports signed a new sponsor. A NASCAR Marijuana sponsor had finally made it’s way onto the grid. Making history, the team scrambled to put the car together and get to the track.
Carl Long NASCAR Weed Sponsor

They made it there, at the last minute. But it turns out, that Colorado-based marijuana vaping company isn’t allowed in NASCAR. Series officials weren’t happy with Carl Long and the new branding, at all. At tech, they forced the team to remove the new sponsor logos from the car.

NASCAR said it violated rules governing sponsorship and paint schemes.

A silly move by NASCAR. We are at a point where Marijuana is widely accepted. It’s legal in many states across the US. Any sponsor can make or break a weekend for these little teams.

Until this weekend, Carl Long was prohibited from owning a NASCAR racecar or stepping foot in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage area. A ban that’s been in place since 2009. He had an unpaid fine, totaling $200,000 for an oversized engine.

He appealed that ruling, lost. Though, that was a very steep fine for such a low-budget NASCAR team. So. despite the appeal loss, Carl Long just refused to pay the fine. Time has gone by since that ruling, a lot of time.

This weekend, Carl Long was suddenly allowed back into the NASCAR garage. This weekend at Kansas Speedway was his first return, since 2009. On how he was allowed to come back, Long keeps it short and vague, stating the sanctioning body reached an “agreement” on the matter.

Carl Long returned for the first time this weekend at Kansas Speedway. Unfortunately, before he could even make it through the NASCAR tech line, NASCAR had an issue. The new NASCAR Marijuana sponsor logo had to be removed from the car.

Ahead of the weekend Carl Long thanked his new sponsor, “Thru social media we have a new company based in Colorado stepping up to take the hood. Veedverks. They produce vape cartridges.”

The Marijuana company was prepped for weekend promotion, “In support of #66 Carl Long and his return to Monster Energy Nascar Cup Series, we are having a sale! Shop now at www.veedverks.com and when you use Coupon Code ” LONGSHOT” receive $66 off each Start Kit. Don’t wait! This sale will be gone faster than a race car!”

NASCAR officials stated it will not adorn the car the rest of the weekend.

Way to go all and the new leader !

Danica's inteview out of the Care Center bothered me about her. She launched into "me, me, me" and her woes on the track, practically predicted herself getting injured in an upcoming wreck - oh - then towards the end, mentioned Almirola - told me a lot about her.

Brutal Kansas race for me and my lofty position, ha.

Big 600 this weekend.

I was kind of excited for the All Star race format last weekend, but the actual race wasn;t that great and neither was the optional soft tire. The race of the non-all stars beforehand had some pretty good moments.

They added some VHT to the high line at Charlotte to encourage a second line to be able to pass. Something is off on this track, once you get out front it is like nobody can catch you.

600 was painful too watch. Watching the end of race cheering for teams to run out of gas seems to goofy to me.

Why not have longer races on exciting courses and short races w cars going backwards on boring tracks?

I sort of agree there, winning by someone in front of you running out of gas always seemed, well, sort of like winning during a red flag for rain.

Anyhow, I generally like most drivers, but there is just something about Austin Dillon that rubs me wrong.

I won't complain if I never see that belly flop and whatever sort of twerking thing he does, again.

Edit: but then again, I am getting old and cranky, so it is probably just me.

Hate to mention this Alan, but my buddy, the guy in last, hasn't updated his picks in weeks and has been getting zero points for awhile due to the max start thing.

Well if nothing else, it is always see a poor loser like Kyle Busch have a melt down after a race. Screaming on his in car communications, walking out of a press conference...always the good sport that 18.

I've had mixed results on a fuel mileage wins. On one hand there is something about having the most deserving or the best cars win the race. Then on the other hand I like to see crew chiefs and drivers come up with different strategies that can capture a win even though they were not maybe one of the top cars out there. We all know the best team doesn't always win the game, or the best athlete doesn't always win the match, so it goes in auto racing too sometimes.

There were atleast 4 cars on somewhat of the same strategy, the 48, 3, 31, 22. The RCR cars made it work got to give them some credit for planning and executing.

Last stage for our fantasy league is Dover. Catch me if you can

I was sort of pulling for Larson. I am not sure what happened between him and Truex but I didn't think Larson was at fault on either of the incidents.

I think I said the same thing about this time last year, you win the league and I'm back to Chicago to buy you a pizza!

380 pts is a hell of a total. Somehow you pulled off such a feat last year as well. But it's a marathon not a sprint!

Gotta agree w 14 and 88 in regards to their comments about late yellow yesterday. NASCAR burned off a ton of quality racing laps and cost several teams some big dollars in repairs and or dollars in winnings.

Looking forward to Sonoma this week. Always a favourite. I need to get there one of these years.
