Don't like BK, but don't want HMS and JJ to get #6.
So guess pull for Dodge.
Glad Toyota is out of it.
BTW BK is a good driver but couldn't hold a candle to the "Intimidator", not even in the same league.
Just a from different age and class of drivers that have nothing in common with the drivers of the past.

as to Danica, two things, first , sitting high in turn four it looked like she made the decision to go down the front straight on fire instead of into the pits for a shot of fire extinguisher, her choice. Second, it all happened too fast for a NASCAR call.Oh, Ooops , third, several older women sitting behind me ask: what the deal was with Danica and were told " She aint never gonna win. The good ol boys wont let her."

Not defending Gordon or his choice of when to do it but Clint got what he had coming. Been building up for a while and If it weren't Gordon it would have been someone else sooner or later.
He said himself he didn't need to pass Gordon that he (Boyer) was just out there riding around. So it was just another example of him showing his butt!(which he does quite often)
BTW, would not be so quick to write Gordon off VS Boyer.

I don't follow at all, but looking at the video that Clint guy was stupid for trying to pass on the inside and so close to Jeff. I'm sure he knew that something was gonna happen. Probably didn't expect to get it into the wall.

I agree with what Kyle Petty said after the race. They should have thrown the yellow after Jeff got in the wall, he would have had to come down pit road for repairs and cooler heads would have prevailed. They also muffed it by not throwing a caution after Danica hit the wall (not her fault BTW, 31 'pooned her). But I have to admit things were happening fast. It would have saved a lot of carnage at the finish line. I thought it was cool that Newman crossed the line ahead of BK backwards!

I think Rask is the stronger tender. Thomas is great when he's on, but when he's off he's reaaaaaalllly off. I was anxious to see dougie Hamilton and chara together. 2 100+ mph slapshots from the blue line? Yes please.

And Clint Boyer's crew and crew chief got nothing for gang-jumping Jeff Gordon from behind??? :o


Who's running the penalty decisions, Kyle Busch?

You did not watch it very closely.

The 15 crew members jumped Jeff from behind after he got out of the car and removed his helmet. You could clearly see in the initial onslaught that the 15 crew knocked Jeff to the pavement ... it was Jeff they were piling on when the 24 crew joined in. His crew responded by taking on the 15 crew. It was then that Jeff was pulled out of the melee and hustled into the hauler.

One of the TV announcers said the 24 crew was holding Jeff back, but the guy he was talking about was one of the crew (he was wearing a helmet). Gordon had already removed his helmet and placed it on the roof of the 24 car, so he was not at the toolbox where the announcer thought he was. Jeff was never being held back ... hate to say it, but Jeff was being rescued.

Yep, there is no freedom of speech in NASCAR

Edit, I forgot, NASCAR did add to the NASCAR rule book after the Daytona 500 that no cell phones, or devices like it or allowed in the race car during any official on track timing sessions ( practice,qual,race) .

The reason why is that you can control a Traction control device through blue tooth, and a TC devices are smaller then a cell phone, so that is the reason for the phone ban in the cars. No TC allowed

So you have not watch very many race's this year have you?, so what Gordon did today has come from season's of hard racing between him and Bowyer, do you remember what Bowyer did at Martinsville's?, I am not taking sides here, but Gordon should of waited tell after the race.

What the crews did, sure that was over the line, but its expected, Bowyer still had a shot at winning the championship, and Gordon took that chance away, I dont blame the the #15 team for being pissed off, you would be too if you were a crew member, this not the first time crew members have gotten involved, and wont be last

I do see the #15 team being penalized this week, I am never looked forward tell Tuesday


Your right I dont watch very many Napcar races as Im more of an Open Wheel fan IE Formula 1 and IRL but a fan of anything that has four wheels and goes fast. I do however love to build Napcar models. I have watched enough to know that Jeff Gordon has been protected and catered too too many years now that he needs to have his binky taken from him and treated like a man for once. I totally agree with you GORDON should have waited till after the races to address any ill feelings he had with Boyer. Not handled it the way he did during the race. BUt that will never happen cuz hes the Napcar wonder boy, chosen one.

What the crews did was over the line and totally NOT to be expected during a race on National Television. Once again handle it after the races in the garages or hauler areas. Im on Boyers side here Martinfan. I woulda been jacked too but not have handled it like they did. Especially trying to sneek Gordon. Handle it like a man face to face and knukkle up. Its all part of racing IF handled properly.

Nascar better handle this properly and penalize BOTH teams or its just another prooven reason that the 24 team is the catered too chosen crew of Nascar.
