NNS live blog

This entry was posted in the following categories: NASCAR

I'm watching the NASCAR Nationwide Series race in Texas and thought, what the heck. Let me try my first attempt at a live blog. I'm watching it on TIVO, so I've time-shifted. My computer says it's 3:56 PM (EDT), and my Tivo says we're 24 minutes into the race (lap 8 right now).

Start with, what's with this $15k bonus for throwing your helmet?? So does that mean NASCAR won't penalize drivers for throwing helmets? Is this a change in the rules, or is the bonus designed to offset penalties by NASCAR. Crazy. Absolutely crazy.

Also, don't get me started about that first caution in lap 2. Someone threw a T-SHIRT onto the TRACK?? Yikes...

Now lap 17, Harvick's still in the lead.

4:10:58 PM (44 minutes on Tivo): Had to restart Firefox to get this cool add-on that gives me the time-stamp. Not much changed yet, getting ready for green flag pits.

4:18:53 PM (53 min on Tivo): Ouch! Kevin Harvick just lost an axle. That'll ruin your whole day...

4:20:22 PM Got to admit. Tivo live blogging is rather silly. Unless you're actually in my living room right now, these times are absolutely meaningless (well, the XX minutes on Tivo time might mean something).
