They had to drive their butts off when they were near one another. For the folks who like crashing over racing, Sunday will be a treat. The finish was great. Biff was going to steam right by and he came from the apron for the block without wrecking. Other than one mistake, letting Kesolowski commentate, I enjoyed it. He needs a little more spit and polish before he is ready for that gig. Looking forward to the Dual's.

They could not have asked for a bigger "buzz worthy" start to speedweeks than that. Now, if she can keep the car raceable after Thursday, it will be a major news point. I liked Barbie's quip, "well I can say I was the fastest guy today." Go Daddy.

Still no word on the injuries. Workers initially said it was 6 folks. With all that hot fluid flying through the air, at a minimum, there is no way there were not injuries. One report was a tire and wheel hit someone. Would have been much worse tomorrow when all those seats are full.

In the footage there is a guy standing with his back to the track, just before the front end disintegrates, hard to believe he did not suffer some type of injury.

Pastrana...showed some mettle and some power. Needs to learn to work with his drafting partner. He would get hooked up and then change lines. I am sure his next plate race will be much better result. He hung in there well while getting punted around. I was impressed, he may actually do this for real.

Wow, that was a spectacular crash. I suspect there were some spectator injuries there.

Last report 15 injured, from minor burns to more serious injuries requiring surgery.
