    This "official" race title is confusing this time. The spring race was titled "Bubba Burger 250". The current name was usually the fall's race name.

    So, last year's Spring race winner (Bubba Burger 250) was Denny Hamlin

    Last year's Fall Virginia 529 College Savings 250 winner was Kyle Busch

    Frankly, who pays attention to the "official" race name? Or maybe I'm in a very small minority. It's the spring Richmond and the fall Richmond to me. Same with Bristol and all the other tracks they go to twice. The "officlal" names of the races change year to year, but the location of the tracks don't.

    Hey, I was just trying to take the confusion out of it for people who follow the series intensely.

    I don't know many people who follow the series intensely who care about the official race name. They use the name of the track and if it has two races - the season.

    When I saw that on the racing news, all I could think of was "Oh no - say it isn't so!" Then, my second thought was that somebody must have some equipment they want to get rid of.

    He'll probably hit Travis Pastrana at some point tonight

    The Big Story of This Race,,, is Ryan Blaney, so far...

    Pit stops just killing him, but he has pass'd more cars
    than anyone...

    Princess Sparkling Pony, same old story, should of,
    could of, would of, but no numbers...

    And Travis putting on a good show, in fact very
    good, for the ? first time out....

    Blaney in the Casey Luna Ford,,, Reborn,,, in the Kid....

    Aloha All,,,

    Just another typical NASCAR show,,, you just wait all night...
    This was a great show, but again, it took all night...

    That Blaney Kid, what a personality he has got, Dad is a
    little dry, but both are great talents... Can the Kid be that
    much better than this Dad?... The Daddy was just great
    in the World of Outlaws... And I think his Daddy was good
    also....

    Cole Witt, Stenhouse, Dillion, some great talent... These
    kids can just race, and put on a great show... These Kids
    have had so much experience running wheel to wheel,
    great show of courage and talent... Very entertaining...

    Travis, speeding on the Pit Stop,,, that was cruel... Is
    he a ball of fire, or what...

    What a great finish, this is the type of action that Indy Car
    needs, but it will never happen... And for me, it's the talent
    level, the level of car control... Just Outstanding,,,

    Big,,,
