The Time Has Come
Alright, I’ve heard enough of the drivers telling us how great the racing is on that old worn out surface at Atlanta. It might be from where they sit. They need to see if from our perspective.
Kyle Larson absolutely dominated the Cup race at Atlanta…heck, he led by more than 10 seconds during the second stage. Yes, Ryan Blaney did chase Larson down and pass him with less than 8 laps to go. And, Blaney still won by more than two seconds.
If Martin Truex, Jr. doesn’t speed on pit road in the Xfinity race Saturday, he likely stinks up the show, pretty much like Kyle Busch did in the Truck race.
There have been some great finishes at Atlanta over the years, but few of them have occurred in recent years.
The arguments against a repave are: that it will lead to higher speeds and less competitive racing. Could it possibly be worse than what we saw last weekend?
We have figured out ways to age tracks faster. So, once the July race is over, let’s roll out the pavers and take care of this.
The drivers have had their say for about three years, now it’s time for common sense to take over and give the fans better racing.
