    Harvick gets by Truex for the lead with less than 10 to go.

    The battle for the final spot at Homestead next week will be interesting with Keselowski 19 points up on Hamlin right now, but Johnson and Chase also potential threats to steal a win and the spot. Sorry Blaney, it's been a great run for the Wood Brothers this season, but I don't see you stealing a win to advance.

    Ah, Gopherfan, dude. Next week the NASCAR dog and pony show is in Phoenix (Nov 10-12). The following weekend is Homestead.

    I might actually get enough cash to go to one of these NASCAR races at the raceway here in Phoenix one of these years but I am not holding my breath or anything.

    How much do they charge? Most tracks are basically giving tickets away for Raceday walk ups. Like I'm talking 20 bucks. They've lowered the price at a ton of tracks trying to get people in the door in hopes they can upsell on amenities once in the gate.

    Last time I looked at Phoenix tickets I think it was like $125 per and the seats were not good(down low close to fence). It was basically sold out.

    Wasn't worth it to me. I didn't even look this time.

    Hell, the champion could be irrelevant. Imagine if Junior actually managed to win the damn race

    Yep, this miserable season has finally come to a close. Many newbies and youngsters next year. Don't know if that will change this sport's death spiral or not? Who knows.

    I'm just wondering who's going to be considered the big name now. The biggest three marketable names in the sport have all retired the past couple of years (Jr, Stewart and Gordon). It also makes me wonder how many of the old school fans will stop watching now that Jr has retired.
