    I went searching for it when Modified veteran Mike Stefanik was killed in a plane crash earlier this month and couldn't find it.

    And Kyle Busch has said a lot of stupid things, but frankly, nobody cares any more.

    I also saw some story that NASCAR has hired Dallara to build something. Spec chassis? Spec bodywork? I didn't care enough to open the story but that's one more step away from "stock cars."

    Can only hope this is a safety issue. Otherwise, it smells of Car of Tomorrow, Part II. The original wasn't good enough to justify a sequel.

    And in either case, does that put another four dozen frame builders or sheetmetal guys on the unemployment line?

    That’s kind of an indictment on NASCAR. The guy won Rookie of the Year in the trucks when he was 40-something. I wonder what he could’ve done had he gotten a half decent Busch or Cup ride about five years earlier.

    I've gone from being a diehard fan, traveling NASCAR and NHRA writer to "Where they racin' this weekend?" and "Who won? Who?"

    I always enjoyed the NHRA event when it came to the track south of Richmond. Did more NASCAR races than I can count, enjoyed it more when the drivers were more accessible and less programmed.

    Mainly, it tells me that y’all started using the Dale Jr. plane crash thread as the NASCAR thread because the search function is broken.

  9. It's gotten so bad, there was a story that Paul Menard is retiring.

    The most high-dollar also-ran in NASCAR.

    When dafuq did the Charlotte Roval become a thing? It made for the most entertaining 20 minutes of NASCAR I’ve seen in years.

    Last year, if memory serves me right. This might have been the third year.

    So there is going to be a new New NASCAR car - love the paint job - but I'm curious, is this just the template NASCAR requires for each team in terms of body? How do the various teams incorporate the new template into whatever their models are supposed to represent (Camry, Mustang, Impala)? How do you do teams separate themselves if the car is supposedly uniform?
