Stenhouse, Jr.,..........What a dumb ass! Tuned in to catch up on how Larson and Blaney were doing at Daytona just in time to see Stenhouse put on a ridiculous blocking move on Blaney, that ultimately took out several cars. And NASCAR officials still have their heads up their asses for not penalizing blocking.

Pretty much 90% of the field drives like that.    NASCAR rarely ever penalizes anyone for on track stuff.   That can't be a surprise to anyone.    If they blackflag blocking there wouldn't be any cars left for the last half of the race.

I’ll start watching when they 

1. Adopt a sprint car style heats and mains program, keeping only a few 500 mile races

2. Eliminate owner points

3. More tracks 1 mile or less

4. Get rid of crap playoffs that change constantly 

5. Add a temporary street course late in the year when points matter and then change location year to year

I like it! They'd be suprised how many more people would watch with a heat race program for starting positions and a shorter main event race.

Blocking?   I can't believe they are still doing that so obviously.  I still believe that Dale Ernhart was blocking for Jr. and Mikey and that is what got him killed.

just my opinon.

Earnhardt wasn't blocking and wasn't in a position to do that to begin with.   Junior and Mikey were actually way out in front.    He wasn't close enough to them.   With the position he was in he couldn't block because he already had Schrader beside him on the right.   The only position he was in was a position to get run over, and that's what triggered it more than anything else.

No disrespect at all towards you or Carol there MrZero, but at the point the big crash happened Junior and Mikey were at least 10 car lengths out in front with a very short distance to go to the checkered.  None of the cars behind them had a chance of getting there anyway.      Blocking wouldn't have been necessary even if he intended to, but on top of that he was three wide.    Hard to block when you're three wide.

Go back a little further in the replays.....no doubt Sr. was blocking.....maybe the first time ever in his career he tried to use his rear bumper rather than his front bumper.

I'm not saying he didn't block at all during the last lap.  I'm also not saying he wouldn't have blocked given the opportunity.   I'm saying that he wasn't blocking at the exact time of the accident, and I don't believe blocking got him killed.    By the time the crash happened nobody in that pack was going to get to Mikey and Junior at that point.   Even if they take each other out somehow one of them is going to slide across the finish line before anyone else can get there.

I see your point in that, but his initial blocking is what caused the cluster f--k around him and behind him and everybody involved was fighting for every position available. Had he not blocked I'm certain the cars involved would have been more strung out......just sayin.....they were all wadded up in a bunch there because of the initial blocking by Sr. That's ultimately what led to the contact.

Probably true on that.   What he did on the back straight probably did set it up for them to be three wide going into turn 3.  Overall though, I still wouldn't blame blocking.   I would blame the bump drafting that happens with restrictor plates.

If this is what it takes to get more people interested in NASCAR, why does'nt  sprint car races have 100,000 fans at races?  The trouble with ALL racing is that the fans are getting old and there are not many young people to take thier place.  There is not a auto craze with most fans.  All young people care about is how many gegs of beer will fit in back of a Tahoe.  People were nuts about cars starting right after WW2 for the next 30 years.  Now not so much.  In every race group car OWNERS are getting older.  Penske is in his 80's.  Who will take over when these guys are gone.  Will the new guys have the same passion and the the same relationship with advertisers.  There is no one around with enough money to buy these top teams out.  NASCAR has to many hours of practice, time trials and gabber before races.  You have to keep fans wanting more, not tire them out with all this other crap before races.
