I don't generally make picks, but I'll make an exception and pick "Mr Indy 500", Kurt Busch.

I'll take that order of finish. The 4 car was "Freaky Fast!"

 

The #4 car used to be (and for DECADES) the Morgan McClure with Robby Gordon driving it.

 

Who owns it now?

Not sure -- but Ernie Ervan and Sterling Marlin also drove for McClure -- I think Runt Pitman was the engine builder.

Yes, they both did with Ernie being the most successful of the lot.  Robby was driving it last i knew, probably the last MM driver. David Ifft was his Crew Chief for awhile and I only have bad things to say about Ifft so I'll not say anything at all.

I hate to say it but it seems like the Chevy's have the drivers that have more desire to win.  Stewart, Harvick, Johnson, even Jeff Gordon can still be a hothead.  Toyota has Kyle Busch and Hamlin, both want to win.  Toyota has Matt Kenseth who likes to win.  It has been so long for Ford drivers to win they won't know how to act in Victory Lane.

Matt wanted to win with Ford...but had to move to Toyota to win, sadly.

The Penske boys are dominate on pole day. I watched a little of it today. They still need to tweak the format. #1 ban taping the front end. This cures the overheating issue. After Logano almost hit Ambrose in the first round, I feel they need to spread the cars out more. Vickers had a similar deal.

+1 . That has got to be a scary deal for these guys. NASCAR simply has to state that using tape on the front end will not be allowed during qualifying. This solves the safety and overheating issue at once. I think NASCAR is more focused on "A NEW TRACK RECORD" vs safety. They probably like the new attention this format is getting so they can charge more for advertising. As the article said, Bowyer almost took out JR. Can you imagine the backlash.

From the article it sounds like they have a way to cool them without NASCAR having to police open hoods.  Or else they can just tell the on-track drivers that they cannot under any circumstance get on the apron, and keep all the cooldown drivers below the apron line.  I hope they get it sorted out before someone gets hurt.

 

I can't imagine what a clusterf*** it's going to be at Bristol.

You're not kidding. Bristol will be a complete mess if they don't make a tweak to the rules now. Somebody's going to slip up and there going to lose two drivers for the weekend or worse. NASCAR can't sit back and wait like the article mentioned. That's just stupid. You can't place entertainment above safety, especially with this only being qualifying not the actual race.

... I think NASCAR is more focused on "A NEW TRACK RECORD" vs safety. They probably like the new attention this format is getting so they can charge more for advertising.


I disagree. As stated in the link...

"But the talk after Friday's qualifying centered around a safety issue which NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said the sanctioning body is still evaluating."

If there is a safety issue I believe NASCAR will address it.

Gee - Penske cars on the front row two weeks in a row?......

 

Unfortunately the Fords have 11 Chevy's and Toyotas faster than them during final practice.  Hopefully qualifying will be more indicative of race outcome!
