Martin Truex Jr WINNER
NASCAR is trying to make it worth watching again.Stupid question here.
What the F are stages in the race? Sort of like heats. They pay bonus points for the chase. Encourages actual racing before the last 20 laps.(supposedly)
I don't watch NASCAR a lot, but this is the first I have seen it. This is the first year.
How long is a stage? Depends on the size of the track and length of the race. About 30%, 30%, 40%. Last stage winner wins the race
And how many are there? Supposed to be three, but NASCAR added a 4th for the 600 at Charlotte
Is it a piss break?More like a free caution for tires.

NASCAR is at least a bit more interesting to watch since the instituted stage racing. Everybody is now racing to win a/the most/even all of them. There's not so much just riding around waiting for the last handful of laps to make a move anymore. I didn't think I'd like it, but it's not too bad. JMO of course.....
Dover top 5:
Standings after Dover:
Anthony James 29+7=36
OldHillCrestGuy 27+6=33 (Charlotte picks)
HomeDepot20 18+0=18 (Charlotte picks)
Congrats AnthonyJames and OHCG for getting the win with Jimmie Johnson!
Thanks. I think HD20 actual got one point, he started a thread under "The Ride". Probably wondering why no one else picked.

It seems to me NASCAR suspending #18 Crew Chief Adam Stevens, the rear tire carrier, and the rear tire changer four races is a little harsh. Even the announcers at the time were 50/50 on whether there would be any penalties at all.
