Changes are needed at Indy.  Ever since the tire debacle during the 2008 race, there has not been one entertaining Cup race at the track.

It's a close race between this race and Pocono for the biggest snoozefest.

always hate it when the best car gets taken out no matter who it is. Truex didnt do that on purpose, but he sure took him out. They had better watch out for Blaney now.

It looked to me like Busch cut the corner too far inside and drifted up. I think Truex should have given him a little more room, however.

Wish I could see the race.  Channel 4 here in OKC breaks away every 5 minutes for a weather update.  Thunderstorms are moving across pieces of Oklahoma.  No hail or tornadoes reported, just storms.  These guys love putting themselves on tv.

you must not be watching the same race as the rest of the world then. Truex lost it and took Busch out, plain and simple. He even admitted it.

Nasty wreck.  Bowyer and Kurt Busch took some hard hits in that.

they would have thrown a debris caution anyway. No way they were letting Bayne win that one by 10 seconds.

Wow it happened again.  Too many cars in that one to count.  That's one thing I love about this track - the chaos on that narrow, enclosed front stretch when they all forget how to restart.

Eh, they've been trying to manufacture excitement for years now, and the harder they try, the lower the ratings go.  It's WWE on wheels anymore. 

I still get pissed when I think about that time they ran the last 4 laps at Talladega under a debris caution and gave the win to Jeff Gordon.

what chaps my ass more than anything else, is when the reporters try and push the drivers until they say something negative.

Did Nascar just delay a caution flag just long enough for Kahne to cross the overtime line?

I'd ask how a track like the Brickyard doesn't have lights, but after seeing the attendance today I'm not sure they could afford them.

its pretty simple actually, they start their races at noon, like all races should be. Im not sure what NASCAR is doing starting races at 3, but Im not a fan of it and apparently most of the drivers arent either.

No kidding.  At this point, I'm not sure what can be done to get people in the stands.  Decreasing the amount of races on the schedule should probably the first move, IMO.

it was a decent race after Truex took Busch out. It is what it is, but NASCAR is gonna have a black eye after this one. I had absolutely no problem with how it ended, but alot of people need something to argue about.

It'll be the same guys at the end of the season fighting it out.  The guys getting more aggressive are just causing wrecks.  I have gotten to like the race sequences, but wish each sequence didn't end in caution.

Some of us like the wrecks. I'll take todays race over almost all races we've seen this year. Kept me on edge waiting to see what happened next

Yeah they did.  I get it was because of lighting, but with a 2.5 mile track, they should have at least waited until every driver crossed the caution line.

Probably but even the guys on TV said the cameras on TV did not accurately portray how dark it was.  It stays green and the top 3 finish the same anyway, but you allowed those 3 across the line and then throw the caution and it freezes everyone else.  Even those who wrecked.

Ryan Newman finished 3rd.  I'd take his opinion of lighting conditions over the TV guys.

And had fresher tires than 1&2 but never did mount a serious battle for 1&2 on restarts.  He was not finishing any higher than 3rd.
