Not sure how anyone could rig that crapshoot we saw Sunday. That was beyond stupid on so many levels. If so, Brian France is a genius. Props to Clint and Kurt for speaking the truth on what a joke hat whole qualifying session was.
Cowboy it was a hope and pray on NASCAR's part for him to make it without wrecking out. But once in the final run, It's not to hard to tweak a computer to flash a time and then a transponder number. So to say Brian is a genius is a far reach, but to say he made sure Jeff made the cut each sessioin isn't a reach at all.
Jimmie Johnson won the 500 pole in his rookie year, so these things do happen. Strictly coincidence.
I know most on this board won't put 2 and 2 together but here is something I want everyone to think about. 2013 years ago Danica Patrick made her Cup Debut for the 500. She won the pole among the fan fare2014 the 3 comes back to NASCAR and who wins the Pole, The 3 car with Austin Dillon Won the poll.2015 Jeff Gordon announces he is going to retire from NASCAR at the end of the season, Guess who won the poll? Call it what you want, but 3 major happenings at the start of the season and all 3 end up on the Poll. Don't tell me it isn't made for TV and ratings anymore. I can honestly say this is the 1st year in a long time that I'm not really excited about the upcoming season. The HMS/SHR bias and the overwhelming coverage of these teams and NASCAR's total BS on ruining the sport with their stupid made for TV rules is getting to me. So call me what you want. But facts speak for themselves and BTW Danica and Dillion never came close to a poll on the other restrictor plates since they won the pole at Daytona.
And yet you don't have an answer do you. Oh, wait, you'll copy cowboys response. I forgot.
And did you not notice how they were following real close the pack then all of a sudden the camera went high and away from the pack. But the thing i noticed was Jeff was a 1/2 car length behind the 11 when they went to the long shot and he was still a 1/2 car length behind at the Start Finish line. It's ok, It's Jeff Gordon and everyone knows he like Junior will be given the show. Also why was JJ slower if the car behind was the fastest in that group, in every instance except the 24 and 48? Try again. Cowboy. Nice pictures though.
While you two go at it. The main point is that this format stinks.
That's the biggest thing, IMO. That was my point on the first post I made here and I still can't believe anyone thought this was a good idea. I mean how many times has anyone seen me praise Clint Bowyer?The other thing nobody mentioned yet is the second round of qualifying. The Penske cars decided to slow down on the second lap and almost cause a wreck, which is supposed to be a clear violation of the qualifying rulers this year.
