Welcome NASCAR race fans to my NASCAR blog. Here at the Dover International Speedway where it is raining on the Monster Mile. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks qualifying was cancelled and they will be lining up according to practice speeds in all practice sessions.
The NASCAR Nationwide Series 5-hour Energy 200 qualifying was also rained out. They will line up according to the Rule Book.
NASCAR Fan Commentary
While it is raining and stopping, I’d like to comment on the race last night. While Kyle Busch is proving to be the best Cup driver ever in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the NASCAR Nationwide Series, it makes for a lousy race to watch unless you are the media who are Kyle fans. Rookie Cole Whitt passed Kyle and pulled away. And may have won if there were no more cautions. But the Sprint Cup chase contender proved to be too much for the Rookie.
A much better ending would have been Kyle giving Cole a chance to race him and maybe beat him. Cole could have won his first ever Truck race as a Rookie. Now that would have been fun to watch. Two years ago one of my favorites, Brian Scott won the race. Last year another favorite Aric Almirola won. This year Kyle has to prove he can win them all at the expense of the regular Truck drivers who can’t compete at the Cup level. But then how can you blame him? He’s not a team player, just him winning. I remember Brad Keselowski “letting” team mate Justin Allgaier win at Bristol. That was the only win for a Nationwide driver last year. Cup drivers, Kyle in particular, are taking away the wins and money of the regular drivers in the lower Series’. I for one, do not like watching that.
