The All Star Race

It's hard for me to admit but I was disappointed by Saturday's NASCAR All Star race. It wasn't a bad race like you consistently get at restrictor plate races. It was merely a good race. At the All Star race good racin' just isn't good enough. We have come to expect fireworks, partly because this race has given us fireworks in the past and partly because NASCAR's marketing promises us the fireworks every year. But sometimes you just don't get it. Carl Edwards drove off during the final ten lap segment on Saturday night, no one wrecked behind him to bring the field together and that was all she wrote. It wasn't a bad race but it wasn't spectacular and when the All Star isn't spectacular it's disappointing.
