Now we find out if Nationwide is more fun baked instead of sober.

If this goes on for much longer there will be 10 cars on the lead lap.. (baked could be a good idea to enjoy this one)

Harvick builds 14 seconds lead on P2 in about 25laps before pitting, guess who's going to win...

No I was just telling Andrew what the first caution was for.
Just ran out to get some pork-chops, portabellos and beer.

Hehe. I reckon his fuggin head is going to explode if he doesn't win this. Pieces of shithead everywhere.

Yeh Logano is sick. mcDowell jumped in the car for practice, but driver TBD for the race.

Yep. Never run here before, doesn't have a regular drive, but jumps in and is running top 10 all night.

Further proof that JWT is a no-talent hack.
Btw Ryan Truex has been announced as the driver of the NNS #99 for Richmond and Dover. Maybe Benton's sick of bent cars.

Girl and I just got back from a pool party and are pleasantly surprised to find a NASCAR race on.

I can't stand Tab Boyd (Danica's spotter, formerly JPM's)

Jesus Hillbilly Christ.

The 33 is sponsored by that Super PAC of supposed spec ops people who are pissy with the President. I know NASCAR leans conservative but come on guys, let's keep it out.

The PAC is called Bad Boy Buggies?

My girl and I actually caught that live on Racebuddy--the "backstretch" cam was focusing on him. I thought I was watching another caution about to come out. That was Kyle Busch level.

Good timing for everyone then. On the TV broadcast they were doing one of those 'through the field' things, a sure sign nothing interesting is happening, and just as they cut to Pastrana from Annett he just comes sliding into view out of the corner.

Well I thought it was pretty naughty at first, but a) anything that keeps Harvick from winning is OK b) throwing your bottles out the window in an unobtrusive area is actually common and accepted practice and c) NASCAR now reports that's not what caused them to throw the caution.

So, it's just the TV people stirring up &*(#.

I don't know what is better, watching Harvick lose, or listening to him whine incorrectly after the race.

They even showed a truck going out and picking up a fairly significant piece of debris, and that was only one of two pieces they picked up--neither of which was a water bottle.

Oh well, Harvick just reaffirming what an idiot/jerk/whiner he is.

Keselowski looks shiftier as the interview goes on, Harvick ain't fooled by any of it, and Elliot Sadler sounds like an old Australian man for the first for or five words every time he talks.

What happened to Harvick? Did he pick up crap on his tires, or where other cars holding back until it counted?

That water bottle drop sure looked suspicious. If Brad wanted to the bottle to go to the inside of the track, he would probably:

1) Not drop it in the dog-leg portion of the track.
2) Not be pointed in the direction of the wall when he threw it.
3) Impart some force towards the inside of the track while throwing it, instead of just dropping it.

Then again, maybe physics wasn't one of Brad's stronger subjects.

Check Gluck's Twitter timeline.

Apparently,
-Brad threw no fewer than three water bottles out during the race
-He claims he threw the last one 10-15 laps before the last caution
-NASCAR explicitly clarified that drivers throw water bottles from their cars all the time and that it's never a caution

ESPN was just stirring things up and Harvick, being the hotheaded idiot he is, took the bait.

Also, I've seen drivers throwing water bottles from their cars and they always just drop them out the hole next to the window net.
