All in all it was an A minus day for NASCAR with great racing, lots of passing and excitement, just what an entertainment venue should be.

Only the rain could keep this race from being an A plus, but as much power as NASCAR has, it has not "yet" figured out how to control the weather.

Rain and all, it was a great afternoon for NASCAR, this double-file start is the key to having a series that actually races.

NASCAR is fast becoming one of the only major racing series in the world where racing actually takes place, let me explain that statement further. The key word is "racing", please stay with me on this.

F1 is arguably the biggest and most popular racing series in the world, can we all agree on that?

When I sit and watch an F1 race, I'm just amazed at the beauty and power of those race cars.

Then after a few laps, I'm thinking, well what now, when are they going to "race"? Never. Most of the time there is no racing.

The other major racing league Indy, is about the same, I didn't get to see the last race, but a television report described it as "a snooze fest with only three lead changes".

I'm falling asleep just talking about it. I swear, I'm a fan of both series ,I'm not just bashing them, I just like to see them race.

I may be wrong, but it seems to me some comments from NASCAR drivers may be taken as negative in regards to the double-file starts.

I hope that's not the case.

I'm sure this new rule is hard on the drivers, but is a lot more fun for the paying customers.

And that my friends is the bottom line, fans got to be happy, drivers, well, no so much, they make plenty of money, that gives them the ability to be happy after the race.

If you're a multiple series race fan, as am I, you probably have noticed that lately NASCAR is where all the racing is happening.

Amen my brother ,amen.
