 :< alright fellas it's the biggest racing weekend of the entire year and the Cup series is staying in CHARLOTTE for another week along with the Xfinity series on Saturday. Also  we got the Indy 500, coke 600 and the Monoco GP. This is gonna be a hell of a weekend!!!!!!

Charlotte is a 1.5 mile oval with banking in all 4 turns the exact same at 24 degrees and the straights are banked at 5 degrees.

After a lack luster all-star race from Charlotte last week, I honestly don't expect a whole lot but this race usually does have a ton of mechanical and tire issues considering it's a 600 mile marathon at 400 laps at this 1.5 mile cookie cutter and a ton of green flag runs. There have also been some really surprising winners over the years. Keep in mind we will also be adding a 4th stage sadly, all 4 stages will be 100 laps long. Little over Half the race will be run during the evening and the rest at night.

Just for the length alone and so many things can go wrong this is a very tough race to cap and first thing is just making go the end and having a shot at victory.  Not to mention the books have caught on to the few guys that are in contention every week on the intermediate racetracks.  So odds probably won't be very good

Gonna be tough but let's keep the ball rolling on a great 2017 season!!!!

GOODLUCK!!!

**IMPORTANT NEWS***

NASCAR just announced (I know more changes) that they will be adding VHT (substance used @ Bristol last month) to the upper groove for for additional grip for the coke 600 this week to try and help drivers use the high groove better. The high groove usually comes in at Charlotte anyways, they should have just left it alone. But nascar doesn't know how to do that most of the time. They can't fix the aero on the cars in less than a week

They are trying their best to come up with a situation to make the race more exciting. We saw last week, with everyone running at bottom of track, that you lost the nose of the car when you pulled behind someone which made passing very difficult and exemplified the importance of clean air. I understand what NASCAR is trying to do but the high groove usually comes in at Charlotte any way (obviously not enough laps to do so in the All-Star last week). Now more cars will be up there from the start so it will likely hurt the high groove towards the end of the race when the resin wears off.

People are so goddamn stupid. They're teenagers so at least they will kill anyone until they're 18 and get out of juvi.

The lesson here is don't eat sawdust filled burritos.

So the Brickyard 400 will now be the last race before the Chase, Richmond is now a part of the Chase, Las Vegas in now a part of the Chase, and they will include in the infield road course at Charlotte

If you are wondering what the road course will look like. It will basically be all of the 1.5 mile surface of Charlotte but with the road course included

Really wish they would have used one of the exsisting road courses for the chase myself. But another TV is always good just RC should be interesting.

I need a primary 5 Dimes account.

I went to 5D live lines when you guys posted and didn't see any Nascar.
Now I understand that you were quoting Greek lines (haven't been able to get an account at the Greek since they cut off from USA customers).

It was the very first book I had when I had 0 idea what I was doing. I was just a dumb kid that wanted to bet on forrest griffin. But you don't need an account to see the odds.
