Based on my own experience, the dissimilar metal between the single large lug nut and the threads of the hub is necessary in order to prevent galling. The problem of the wheel coming apart obviously has to do with the force of impact versus the strength of the wheel. So, either build softer walls, or slow down the speed of the cars, or use heavier/stronger wheels. NASCAR will find the solution, sometimes. I'm OK with it as long as they don't tell me a big fat bold untruth.

My take was that aluminum from the center hole in the rim got into the threads on the hub,causing the nut to bind up. I can't see that one lug nut being aluminum.

Apparently Kyle didn't think Alex deserved the win.

You are making reference to what he said on the radio. Yes, it's true. BUT, what he said to the camera was a much cleaner/professional version. [emoticon]
Either way, he's a terrifically good driver. (perhaps not quite as good as Kyle Larson)

So, I read NASCAR is allowing damaged vehicles, particularly those with flat tires, to be towed to the pits because the undercarriage will be torn up?

The reason given is no inner liner is being used in the tires due to changes in wheel and tire size. Temporary "fix" says NASCAR. Laps down for a driver waiting for AAA as it were.......

They spent a fortune to turn the Atlanta racetrack into a super speedway (increased the banking significantly, straightened out the dog leg, and NARROWED the width). Plus, they lowered the horsepower of the cup engines, and changed the aero package. The result obviously increased the advantage of winning for the 4-car teams (the wealthy ones). AND turned the event into a non-race spectacle (with more "big ones").
All I can figure is that this means more money for NASCAR. I'll wait for the shorter tracks and the road courses to provide some racing.

I made the first 20 laps or so.... took a nap ...FOX's 'Krank it up krap' woke up and went outside to move the armadillo trap....filled some basket ball size holes caused by the 'dillo....change oil/filt on the blue tractor. Back to the house and made the last 40 or so laps. Kinda' exciting last few laps.
Good to see the newer bunch in the winners circle.

I thought that it was a good show overall. Let's face it guys it's no longer racing. It's become reality TV.
I also look forward to the short and road course races. It's also nice to see some new faces with the talent and the funding to run up front instead of Gibbs and Hendricks all the time.
I thought Harvick had a chance for a while but that didn't pan out. As always Blaney can't catch a break and Keslowski needs to put that plug wire back on.

Well COTA was mostly beyond boring except for the loose tire and pit road needing a new configuration.
The obligatory overtime did have some drama with the 'dinger pulling out the ole bump and run only to have Bowman almost steal the show and allowing Chastain to get back to Allmendinger and dump him and Bowman.
