Do We Care?

  • Denny Hamlin says the Coca-Cola 600 is too long
    • “Tradition, shmadition,” Hamlin said. “All sports adapt and change. … I’m for whatever, but I certainly know that from my friends, they choose to come to All-Star week and not 600 week because it’s just too long. “They don’t want to sit here for five hours.”
    • “I’d be just as happy with a Coke 300 trophy as I would a Coke 600 trophy.”
    • This year’s race was four hours, 50 minutes and nine seconds
