I still do not like the idea that the Chase affects every aspect of how races are covered. As long as this terrible system is around, it has to play some role, but it can't be the only thing. Prior to the race, only Chasers got any on-air interviews. Was the driver that ended up dominating much of the race a Chaser? Heck no. Say what you want about Spencer Gallagher, but that man had it going on Friday night. Likely the only reason he didn't either win or come very close to it was that his pit crew had some issues, especially on the last stop.
In addition to somewhat new information on Gallagher's background, we got comments from Sauter and Kennedy about the victories that locked them into the Chase. Admittedly, the content with Gallagher was what drew me in here. Also, Gallagher in general seems to be a really interesting person with quite the personality. I think NASCAR could do a better job in promoting him.
The race itself flew by since there was no real trouble in the event. I'm not a fan of these caution clocks because they break up the natural flow of races. Also, it raises costs for the teams (its much more expensive this year to rent pit crews because nearly every stop will be made under caution, meaning no margin for error.
