I love that Kid Rock couldn’t be bothered to put his drink down to give the command to start engines.

I didn’t love Mark Martin’s gnarly crash on pit road. That was crazy and scary. So glad it wasn’t worse.

Jeff Gordon got all huffy at Dale Earnhardt Jr. I found that to be cute.

And Greg Biffle won the race! I think that’s cool because Biffle is a nice dude.
