Default NASCAR adopts Auburndale Rule!

That's right, race fans, NASCAR will feature Auburndale's "pick your lane at the cone" rule for their allstar race at Bristol.

I thought it may have been the Auburndale rule about throwing helmets and steering wheels at your competitors after an incident. "Any object thrown in anger at another car must be hurled overhand. Any driver who throws underhand has to restart in the rear."

Kidding aside, good move by NASCAR, I love cone starts, but I still hate their woke corporate attitude and will ignore them until we get apologies and a different approach.

Of course, you have much better things to do that wait for that. Like, um, race...

Default NASCAR is once again jumping aboard to be fashionable

Which really makes me wonder a couple of things.Will they vote to "defund" the cone at a later time?Will the cone be required to take a knee during the National Anthem? Will the cone (and it's inevitable stand by replacements) try to establish their own autonomous zone inside the Speedway grounds? So many details left up in the air by that press release.

04, you may be pleased to know that Robert Yoho typically brings his Official Track Cone to it's Official Place in turn four in an electric golf cart.

But does he equip them with a mask? I'd hate to see the little feller get fined....or the blac...oops plague.

You know damn well some group out there will be offended by that cone. The FBI just might get called in to investigate.

Well, I dunno if NASCAR is going to use an actual cone, but rather the principle of the deal.

But hey, cone owners--what color is your cone?

Yes, that may be a problem.

Default Well beyond the issue of the cone

Apparently the NFL is adopting a new "national song" ---sorry can't bring myself to call it an anthem--- to be played before the National Anthem before all games this season.It was referred to on the news as "The Black National Anthem".So when it inevitably makes its way to NASCAR to appease Bubba and all the fan and sponsor money NASCAR can only ever dream of getting my question is it wrong of me to kneel?
