Can't argue with that, love those water cooled brakes!

Noticed that the 2013 chevy for Nascar is called the SS, I guess the consumer version is a 2014 Chevy SS, basically a G8 with Chevy nose and rear end.

Wow, you mean the race car will be actually based on a RWD, V8 street car?!? I wonder if it will be a 2 door?!

Pretty wild to associate racing with selling cars again, isn't it?

One of those Pontiacs was a coupe rwd and V-8, I'd imagine Chevy would do one of those too? Makes sense why the new Caprice is police only if they have plans for a cool V8 rwd car.

That race was pretty good until Stewart wrecked the entire field.

It was refreshing to see him own up to causing the mess instead of his usual whining and finger pointing.

He's the only real racer left.

No, there were about 7 racers left and he wasn't one of them.

Huh, just heard about Junior's concussion problems? I'd like to see him sit out the rest of the season, having suffered a concussion out on the trail and knowing how horrible it is, the more time you give yourself the better, is how I feel about it.

Amazing fact...that was the first Cup race without an Earnhardt since September 1979.

I really wouldn't be surprised to see Junior retire from driving in the near future.
