Different circumstances - a berth in the finale and shot at the championship was at stake at Martinsville, and that was his only realistic chance at a win. Repeating the bump in a relatively meaningless early season race would have stirred up a lot of negative headlines.

 

Johnson had a respectable run at the Boston Marathon yesterday finishing in 3 hr 9 min (averaging 8 MPH). The timing worked out with the NASCAR race on Sat and the marathon on Monday.

Well, Baku was (relatively) tame, so who's ready for the chaos of Talladega?

Crowd looks good. Stenhouse showing signs of being a highlight film again. Looks like a lot of Penskes leading leading unless stage strategies mix things up.

Looks like they've worked to manage the race better after getting smoked in most recent superspeedway races.
Chevy vs Ford lanes now.

One thing I saw:  Much was made of the Chevys forming a train down low, then Fords, then (occasionally) Toyotas.  For a period of time, Fords had trains of 5 or so cars in both lanes.  It they'd finished like that, in a quasi-peloton finish, NASCAR would be screaming almost as much as Chevy/Toyota.  Thankfully it broke up.

Looked like it would start around the time IMSA finished, then another shower just before the green. Tough for fans
