The Pit Stop

Phoenix Thoughts....

Jimmie Johnson has 100% showed he is magic out on the race track.  He flat out dominated at Phoenix putting all but Carl Edwards out with a chance to win the championship.

Rain at Phoenix, never would have expected it.

Carl Edwards did not have that great of a race car, but did all he could to keep his championship hopes alive.

A.J. Allmendinger showed again that he really needs a full time ride in 2009. Reed Sorenson shows again why he is not really the one for the #10 car next year.


ABC to ESPN 2 thoughts...

I do not know what ABC was thinking.  They needed to show the race in its entirety.  Anything could have happened in those final laps like a Jimmie Johnson crash or a Carl Edwards crash.

Even the explanation handed out on the move to ESPN2 was a joke.

This was the ninth race out of 10 in the Chase for the Championship, not the fourth of fifth race of the year.  How many times has CBS aired Sunday night programming late because of NFL action..  Tons.....  BUT ABC could not do it!?!?!?!?!?!

I could see a move over to ESPN2 if you had like 150 laps left and be on air for a long time to finish the race, but you did not have many laps at all to finish on a one mile track.

Was showing America's Funniest Home Videos really that important???  I say it could wait one more week.

I feel this shows just how much ABC really cares about NASCAR, It just does not fully care about NASCAR.
