It's not much of a secret that many of us here at Autoblog don't follow NASCAR very closely. That said, we don't presume the same of you guys and gals in Readerland. So, if you're presently tuned in to the race and want to chat about the proceedings amongst yourselves, head on down to the comment section below. As always, we'll have a wrap-up post on the race either later tonight or sometime tomorrow. Keep it civil and enjoy the race.

      I've been a NASCAR fan since the 80's and the only way to see a race was to go to the track or the occasional ESPN coverage with Bob Jenkins.

      That said- What the hell? Digger's Adventures? I had to turn that crap off and listen to MRN radio coverage. Even my 7yr old son though that was stupid.

      Cut the carp and lets see some fender to fender racing.

        The ride I'm driving this week has Sirius, and I actually had MRN on during the pre-race coverage while I was out running errands. I hadn't ever listened to it before, and I have to say the coverage was both entertaining and good.

        As a nascar fan i will tell you Alex most weeks i just mute the TV and listen to the MRN guys. They are so much more easier on the ears than the TV clowns on all the networks.

        Thank you Jay... I thought it just might be me. WTF is the demographic for "Digger"??? FOX is helping reinforce bad stereotypes of NASCAR fans with this mindless, juvenile animation (IMO).

        I don't have kids & openly shouted at my TV that even children would find a reason to flip-off this cartoon crap. Your 7 year old seemed to agree (with no "bird" calls?)

      I haven't paid attention since Bill Elliott was driving a #9 Thunderbird....which actually looked like a Thunderbird.

      I just had to give up on NASCAR this year. I feel like killing Digger and making him into a scarf or something. The cars are all the same, most of the drivers, too. I liked it back in 1998-2002; now it's just like watching a football game, very hyped. Any everything is sponsored, EVERYTHING. The Verizon Speed Cam, etc. And Fox3D, the GPS-based cartoon versions of the car. What's the point? Why don't you just show the real cars?

        I worked during the whole race. Worked in the bar section so I got to watch some of it. So basicly I got to see the best parts of the race. The beginning. The crashes in the middle. And the ending. It was like watching your favorite movie on TV without commercials!

        Liveblogging sure would be a snap.

        I for one, am glad my ritual Sunday nap is back. I never really could make it through more than 5 laps. It's too bad Audi is pulling out of ALMS and F1 doesn't really air during normal human times.

        Am I the only one that always somehow manages to ruin the F1 results for himself? It's funny and sad that they'll put it on SpeedTV.com's main page as a huge spoiler before it's aired in the US. It took me 20 minutes the other day to find out the finishing order of those Gatorade Duels.

        Maybe I just need to find a F1 RSS torrent feed and just ignore the news (Hey, I already ignore 98% of it).

      I can't believe says blocking like that is legal. How ridiculous. I'd do it every time. No one would ever pass me without causing a wreck.
      • 5 Years Ago
      That would be far too interesting. I highly doubt the drivers would go for it anyway.

      Autoblog: I like NASCAR, but please, don't do this again.

      NBA All-Star Game festivities, or a new episode of "The Simpsons" in HD for the first time ever.

      Why must Fox and TNT plot against me like this?

      I was hoping to get interested again in NASCAR, but that race reminded me of why I stopped, years ago, going to races and watching the others.

      Why don't they run rain tires in the rain?
