NASCAR Pennzoil 400 Thoughts

Just watched the NASCAR Cup race this week with the kiddo, skipping the lesser series competitions. Tomorrow, AEW Revolution will get my main focus but I'll catch up on everything else slowly after (like NJPW, NOAH, DDT, etc) as soon as I can. 

Just a heads up.

First thing of note is this felt pretty clean with a few nice touches of drama sprinkled in. I disliked the stage concept at first, but honestly it's growing on me. The set restarts help add some excitement that works well for the style of racing that NASCAR provides. Color me wrong on that one.

Chase Elliot had a good run for a large chunk, but it's how you finish more than anything else. Speaking of, Logano, Bowman, and Blaney had an entertaining end stretch here with the 22 taking the W in the end. That yellow is what really changed things here and the final lap itself was interesting to say the least.

Solid race, solid fun. Next up, Auto Club Speedway.

TOP FIVE STANDINGS
1.Blaney-85 points
2.Logano-82 points
3.Harvick-81 points
4.Larson-70 points
5.Stenhouse-66 points
