    My interest in nascar is dying just like the sport. Was a huge fan for years. The 21st car is 3 laps down. Really?? I’d rather hang out with my wife that watch this nap inducing race

    Years ago I can guarantee you the 21st place car was three laps down….

    Yeah i get it. It just sucks to lose interest in something I looked forward to for many years. A night race at Darlington a few years ago I would be glued to the tv and now ive watched maybe 15 laps.

    Great job GJE! Had a good night thanks to Larson, thought he would be 30% owned so I wanted to be double at 60%. When he came in at 15% I was happy. In $139 out $375, not GJE but will take 2.5 return.
