How did everyone like the race at Texas on Sunday?? Aside from our results, I thought the end of the race was AMAZING! Yes, the fight included! I am sure most everyone was uncertain about the new chase format. No doubt, there are still haters out there but bottom line….the past few weeks have been the best racing I have seen in a while. Not going to lie, I love a good NASCAR fight, I mean who doesn’t love the drama that it creates? However, it is not the fights I love seeing but it is the passion and competitiveness of the teams and drivers that is so awesome. Our sport has lacked this for some time and I think it is finally back, all thanks to the new chase format. It has created a must win or go home a loser situation for the teams, which is exactly what NASCAR has needed. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter whether you are a Brad K. fan or a Gordon fan, it was awesome to see the rage these two displayed over the final laps at Texas.
I actually had to leave the race early because we were flying back commercial with my daughter, Giselle. Of course our flight takes off right as the race ends but I paid the extra bucks to follow along on Twitter. My eyes were glued to Twitter as I read tweets about the drama unfolding. I watched the replay of the final laps and the fight several times when I got home. My husband and I actually watched in amazement as the crowd went NUTS when the fight started. Honestly, when is the last time, other than when Dale Junior wins a race, that the crowd stayed and cheered 10 minutes after the checkered flag dropped?
Love it or hate it, this chase has spiced things up and I can’t wait to see how everything plays out over the next two weeks. We honestly for once have ZERO clue who will win the championship, it can be 8 different drivers right now.
