ATLANTA THOUGHTS:
The Sunday Night race was exciting, but that opening green flag run was too long for too many competitors.

Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Paul Menard, and Kasey Kahne all looked great before their day went to junk. Sucked...

Sure do like it when Tony Stewart wins.

Nice to see Jamie McMurray win even if it is in the Nationwide Series.

Looks like Dale Jr. is becoming the better car owner now than driver.

Bruton Smith wants to see two races at Atlanta again in the future. I do not see why we need to go to Atlanta twice year when Iowa really needs that Sprint Cup date first.
