Kyle Larson won at Vegas. Only 4 races in to the season.

I got a little worn out from the post race news coverage.

A couple of articles on how Larson's win doesn't erase his mistake that got him banned/fired last year. No kidding? And another with Bubba Wallace congratulating him - anything for a photo op I guess.

Then unrelated to all that, some writers suggesting this was one of the finest, most entertaining races at Vegas, ever. Come on. There was little special about this race except it had a new winner, it looked the same as many races at 1.5 mile tracks to me. Which wasn't all that bad but it wasn't "great".

Well Kyle sure dominated today at Altlanta...that is until they ran too many laps on tires at the end and he faded.

Congrats to Ryan Blaney who stayed right there the last 50 laps to eventually pass him and take the win.

Even Nascar is promoting this year as "The greatest season ever".

Yeah, right. Try again.

I interpret that as a desperation to "try" to get some of the glory back. For many of us, it just ain't working. In my opinion, all the best days are behind us.

Talk about desperation, wait until you see the debacle at Bristol this week. And wait until you see the sport's longest cautions at COT and Road America.
