For all things NASCAR 2020!

Back to racing on May 17th at Darlington! TV ratings should be quite good with the condensed schedule and the lack of other sports being available currently.

Current (Revised) May Schedule:
Sunday May 17th - Darlington - 3:30pm ET on FOX
Wednesday May 20th - Darlington - 7:30pm ET on FS1
Sunday May 24th - Charlotte - 6:00pm ET on FOX
Wednesday May 27 - Charlotte - 8:00pm ET on FOX

No race dates and times have been announced after May 27th. Although the full 36 races are intended to be had. Likely with a condensed schedule similar to May's.

Chase Elliott got screwed last night. BAD CALL by Gustafson - should not have come in for tires. You stay out when in the lead and only a few to go.
Bad call

I'll play the other side, which is what Gustafson did and you go on offense and pit and bring down as many as you can. If you stay out, you are banking on at least a handful of other cars staying out too, and that's not something you can control. As it were, Chase made up like 8 positions? You see what the guys who stayed out did? Only Kes, Blaney, and (for the time) JJ maintained anywhere close to their positions. Get the best car on fresh tires and eat up what you can. They made the right call, just had too many cars go opposite of the leader and stay out.

I agree, not great on Gustafson's part especially considering he had the best car at the end there. Chase Elliott is the driver who I root for and quite frankly he seems to have the worst luck. The other day Kyle Busch spun him when he was slicing through the field and was obviously going to win. Not to mention he has lost 3-4 races on late race restarts (I saw 2 of these in person) through the last few years and Denny Hamlin turned him 2 years ago with just a few laps left at Martinsville for Chase to advance to the championship race.

Whatever Chase did most of the field was going to do the opposite. If he would have stayed out, the rest of the field would have came to pit road for tires. I will say though, with a car like that, I want track position. Even on old tires he was still putting together better laps than anyone else. I believe on that last restart he started 11th and made it all the way up to 3rd. In just a couple laps that is very impressive. Jimmie Johnson lost the points because he failed inspection so Chase will get 2nd place points & money. Chase has a heck of a lot of talent and will be one of the best drivers in no time. He has 6 wins but should have more like 15 right now if the cards would fall his way even just half the time. That team has some bad luck and it sucks as a fan, I can only imagine how they feel.

Chase already is one of the best. Dude was robbed back to back races

I have only played fantasy NASCAR once. May have to get back into that. Not sure who even has the best fantasy platform these days.

After that virtual race a few weeks ago, it's a shame they can't run a real one at North Wilkesboro in this opening stretch of 'local' tracks.

Bristol (short track!) race here shortly, today at 3:30pm ET on FS1. Looking forward to the competitive and aggressive nature of short track racing.

Bristol is so fun to watch on TV. Going to a race there is high in my bucket list.

Likewise! I really would like to go to a race at Bristol, especially the night race.

I cut the cord and got rid of cable. I have internet and YouTube TV which gives me all the local channels and all the sports you would need.
