If you watched Saturday night’s Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, the race last week was anything but exciting.
They all can’t be exciting, but this is a track where things tend to happen to make it exciting, kind of like Jeff Burton taking out Jeff Gordon and getting into a fist fight over the incident on the backstretch, oh and wait let’s also put them into the ambulance together too…HA!, I wish I was the medical escort for that one.
It seems as though the most exiting thing that had happened was a caution for a baseball cap that managed to find its way onto the track. I was almost hoping that it would happen again just to shorten the long monotonous green flag runs.
Let’s face it, it happens. I don’t think Texas needs to shorten the race at all, however they may want to get together with Good Year and test a softer compound tire, so that they wear out faster, causing the cars to have to make pit stops more often.
The tires that they ran on Saturday seemed to be to hard, enabling the drivers to make long green flag runs. It seemed as though that the only way to pass a guy during Saturdays race was to pass them in the pits, because once you got out on that track most of the cars seemed to be stuck in the positions that they were in.
