NASCAR needs to give Goodyear a swift kick out of the sport. The number of tire problems this year has been a disgrace. How many flat tires have we seen in the first six races of the season? Thankfully no one has been injured, but seeing races decided because of faulty tires is just plain studpid. They ran Hoosier out of the sport many years ago and got their butts kicked in open wheel racing by Firestone. It's time for Goodyear to take its show on the road - permanently.

I hope Jeff Gordon enjoys his unearned win Sunday. After running over Kurt Busch, who clearly had the position, he went on to win. If the shoe were on the other foot, what crying we'd be hearing today.

Tell Darrell Waltrip that not making Saturday's truck race is a sign from above. We don't need him back in the series. The trucks provide some of thebest racing NASCAR has to offer and the sideshow of DW trying to make the race is not needed any longer.

Is there a better story in all of sports right now than Mark Martin. One of the classiest people in NASCAR history is quietly putting together a solid season in what will be his final year as a full-time driver. If this performance were being done by one of the young pups, who don't have an ounce of respect for the history of the sport, the media would be all over it. Yet Mark goes on, with virtually no attention. Maybe he likes it that way, but here's one fan who has noticed.

Michael Waltrip is a disgrace. For someone who talks as much on television as he does, the performance on the track is laughable. Here's hoping he gets cut loose at the end of the year and DEI can find someone who is a driver first and spokesmodel later to sit behind the wheel.

Does FOX have to make every race an emotional tragedy with silence and tears? Yes, the Hendrick return to victory lane at the scene of last year's tragic plane crash was emotional, but the post-race coverage seemed to me to milk the situation, rather than celebrate it and serve respect for it. I'm counting down the days until NBC takes over.

I love the letters from people who HATE NASCAR racing. My advice, find something else to do with your time!

Martinsville is without a doubt the best track on the NASCAR schedule. How this track could even be considered as a possible place to lose a race while Pocono and New Hampshire, two of the worst tracks anywhere, would keep two events is beyond belief! Dump Pocono now and give Martinsville three races, one under the lights!
