NASCAR: Race Day in Ft. Worth, TX 4-06-14- [Niedermeyer's Dead Horse]

Good afternoon and welcome to the NASCAR thread.

Today's race is brought to us by the fine folks at Duck Commander (God Bless their furry little selves.) and will be run at Texas Motor Speedway, a 1.5 mile track.

Last week was a doozy in Martinsville with, IIRC, a total of 14 caution flags on the track and a lot of bumping taking place in a very tight pit row.

Speaking of pit row, here's what Kenseth's 180 looked like from inside the pit:



Jimmie Johnson led for a total of 296 of 500 laps but lost the lead to Clint Bowyer in a beautiful move that saw Bowyer's lightning fast reflexes capitalize on the slightest error on Johnson's part. Bowyer, however, lost the lead with a big delay in pit row when the crew had trouble getting one of the tires off the car.

Between cautions flags, and chunks of rubber flying everywhere, drama was in abundance, but the most drama arose from an altercation between Keselowski and Kurt Busch following contact in pit row.

Here's what happened on pit row:

Acting like little babies, they took this one back out on the track.

And, for a little added drama, here's some uncensored audio from inside Busch's car.

In the end, Kurt Busch was the winner, his first win in 83 races.

Congrats to Kurt Busch and the Stewart-Haas Racing Team.

The excitement of the win, however, was short-lived as Busch suffered a tire issue which resulted in a fiery nose-first crash into the wall during qualifying in Texas, destroying the car. Thankfully, Busch is okay and will be participating in the race today.


Today's race looks to be plagued by rain but they have five of the new Titan dryer trucks on hand in case they are needed.

This week's pole position belongs to Tony Stewart posting a speed of 195.454 mph who edged out Brad Keselowski at 195.419 mph. The full lineup can be viewed here.

And, because it's the Duck Commander race, what would a post be without a little Uncle Si thrown into the mix?

Finally, for the Morons, the requisite elbows. Mrs. Kyle Busch, Samantha Sarcinella


Enjoy the race, folks.
