I'm Not The Only One Who Thought Bristol Sucked...

From David Poole: "Maybe Saturday night’s race was so disappointing because of just how good Friday night’s Busch race was.

The tires for the Cup race were hard, but they were the same tires the Busch cars used. How do you explain that away? Could it be that it was the car of tomorrow’s fault?

If the new car makes clean air a trump card at Bristol, how can it possibly help anything at tracks where aero was already everything?

Somebody at NASCAR needs to be worried about what happened in the Sharpie 500."

His full article details almost exactly how I feel, check it out here.

Next, we have Matt Crossman: This was the second boresville night race at Bristol in a row. Last year, it was because too many drivers were worried about screwing up and losing their spot in the points race. This year, it was because Kasey Kahne (seriously!) thoroughly dominated the first three-quarters of the event, then Carl Edwards took over from there. Frankly, it was so boring I am taking back all the great things I've ever said about the night race at Bristol and will only start saying them again when the race is good again...

Finally, David Newton weighs in: The new and improved Bristol received rave reviews after the Truck and Busch Series events offered none of the typical pushing and banging that sends tempers flaring and keeps fans on the edge of their seats as the old one-groove track did. Sure there was more passing as two and sometimes three grooves opened up. But Carl Edwards' victory, which he called the "coolest win of my life," was anything but exciting. Some might call it boring...

Any other thoughts?

But you can't blame the ones who were trying to just finish the race so they didn't end up further back in the lineup. Sure, exchanging paint, pushing and shoving are a heck of a lot more exciting (I mean, does ANYBODY go to hockey games for anything other than the fights?), but you can't blame the guys for just wanting to finish the race and keep their standing or make it better.

Hard tires and a new surface and three or four hit the setup which what I figured would happen throw in the fact that it's close to the chase and you get what you get..The new surface took the character out ..Hopefully it will improve over time with some bumps and dips to challenge everyone a bit more....
