Race was exciting start, exciting finish sandwiching 2 hrs of snoozefest.
Agree with earlier post. With 15 laps or so to go, Gordon/Martin starting marching through the field. Gordon was strongest car out there. Hendrick team was up front early and all but Johnson lead a lap. Then, they all dropped to back of field to nap until end of race.
Nascar will be in trouble if they cannot come up with something other than restrictor plate racing. Because of restrictor plates, they choose between the "pack" stuff from a few years ago, and the stuff we have seen lately.
Neither is that good and relies on luck more often than skill to win a race.

A bunch of good drivers get into the exact same car with different paint jobs. Hype will not keep the fans there forever

I dont understand how people think its any worse than watching them all get spread out with one guy leading by 5+ seconds on the cookie cutters.
Agreed. Say what you want, but the restrictor plate races are far more exciting than California/Texas/Vegas/Michigan/Chicago/Kansas City. IMO, the only races worth watching anymore are Short Tracks, Road Courses and Restrictor plate races. Everything else is boring and predictable.

Then it strung out a bit.
And now its 2 car drafting. At first i didn't like it but there is some added drama.
I imagine NASCAR is looking how to change it.
Anyway I was stoked to watch Gordon and Martin marching up and I think they would have won.
