Pye in the wall (softly) and he also has a penalty for doing who knows what during safety car time haha

Thought that was a bit harsh on brown considering pye was into the back of waters which slowed pye up.

SVG nearly hit the tyre stack with his victory burnout. Would've been pretty symbolic if he did

Pye going into the wall made no difference to his finishing position. His safety car infringement penalty meant that he was always going to finish last of the cars on the lead lap.

I'd rather watch paint dry. Have they come up with some right turning circles then?
Very original huh. All but one of the road courses are clockwise.
Stupid playoffs system aside, at least the series isn't a one horse race.

My apologies then... NASCAR drivers will need to learn how to turn left.

Regardless, it will still be a rude shock to their systems, having to turn the steering wheel in both directions.

They worked on his car and he came back out with blue tape all over the bonnet. They had someone jump on it to get it down.
He still got classified despite a drive through penalty

De Pasquale got disqualified for low tyre pressure, DJR have officially out-Ferraried Ferrari at pit stops this year.

Did you see the damage Courtney's car copped in the Golding incident? He literally drove it back to the pits on 3 wheels.

Forget the blue tape, that car needed to have the whole front right hand corner re-built, which they did and came out only 15 laps down.

How they repaired the suspension & steering damage, enough to attach a wheel, let alone get it in a condition where it could be safely driven around the track, is entirely beyond me.

They’ve had plenty of rebuild practice lately

They came out only 15 laps down because the race was red flagged for half and hour

Even so... that's a ridiculously short period of time to rebuild the whole front right hand corner of the car, given the magnitude of damage evident. The car was literally on 3 wheels.

Only 12 rounds, very bare bones calendar. I understand no NZ with Pukekohe closing but no Winton is baffling.

It does seem very light on. How many rounds do they ordinarily run?

Of those, the Grand Prix is crap, I don't love SMP or the Bend either.
