I think these were the two worst, most boring ass races i've ever seen! Fuel won races are the worst and with the constant rain delays, it was a dull day for racing!

WELL,Nobody likes rain delay and or Fuel issues! But that's just the way the cookie crumbles!
It's the way each and every engine uses it's fuel! I will say it again...You take Ford,Chevy,Dodge and Toyota...give them the same amount of fuel and let them go at it..4 race cars...what those engines burn and how they burn it is entirely out of the hands of those driving that race car.The cars on that race track may look alike,but the engines underneath those hoods have a fingerprint all their own,never to be matched with another!

ya gotta be happy for Casey getting his first win! He's been pretty underrated and I'm glad he had his night to shine, finally. The entire top 5 was somewhat surprising, and very refreshing to see some new people getting to give interviews!

I didn't find the race boring whatsoever. Actually, it was pretty exciting. I thought Jimmie had the win for sure, than the mistake on pit road. Than Tony looked like the man. Alas, Casey took a chance and pulled off his first win (a well deserved win I might add.) He stayed in the top ten pretty much the whole day and the top five when it counted. It's always nice to see someone get their first win. All drivers sometimes get a little lucky, but sometimes you create your own luck by taking a chance. So go Casey. Enjoy, it was a well deserved and earned victory. No worries though, Lowe's is still Jimmie's house, but you can't win them all. Also nice job by Tony. Not a bad finish for someone who wasn't too happy with his car over the weekend. Those Hendrick guys sure are good. I know! I know! They cheated, the race was fixed, they got lucky, blah, blah, blah. If that last caution doesn't come out, than Jimmie probably wins anyway. So, they continue to shine. With and without the COT. Guess I'll also give a little shout out to Jr's. team. They did a good job without Eury. While I'm not a Jr. fan really, I appreciate a good effort under adversity. Gotta say too, they maybe all should thank God that Brian Vickers lost power steering. That guy was a rocket. Kudos to Kyle Petty too. I met him once and I gotta say, he is one helluva nice guy. I'm always happy to see him get a good finish, but it's been way to long.

Like most of the others here, I did not think the race was boring. How can a race be boring when you are clueless as to who is going to stay out or who is going to come in? I was so nervous during the last 5 laps! It is so nice to see different people in the top, I hope that we have a lot more races like the one last night!
