The MORNING of the Talladega race, they implement a new rule:

No bump drafting, which essentially means 'No Passing' with the new car and plate.

This would be the rough equivalent of saying 'No Tackling' in American Tackle Football.

I wonder if there's any ladies figure skating on today. Devil

That's the problem, yes. There is NO WAY to pass at 'Dega or Daytona without bump drafting.

They cut in on somebody's scanner, and he was wondering about NoDoz for the fans, ROFLMAO.

This is really *goshdarn* beautiful. You neuter the event with a capricious and ill advised last minute rule change, and then when people note that the event is full of suckitude, you blame the network covering said event:

But NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston, in a blog posting on nascar.com, specifically knocked ESPN/ABC's coverage of Sunday's Sprint Cup race in Talladega, Ala. At issue: Whether the race was boring.

Usually, TV sports analysts go to great pains to avoid even hinting what they're showing is boring. But Poston suggested ESPN/ABC analysts, including Dale Jarrett, "certainly weren't happy with the race and felt compelled to remind viewers of that virtually every lap. ... And along the way, ABC missed a lot of very good racing."

On Sunday's race on a long track with steep banks, NASCAR cited safety reasons for prohibiting so-called bump-drafting to provide extra room between cars on turns.
