sounds like to me Mr. Sorenson
is not too familiar with racing
or probably even watched the race
i watched it and carl edwards was already wrecking before junior ever got to him. better stick to something you know about mr. sorenson or come on down to carolina sometime and we'll see how far you get a nascar race talking smack about a good ol' country boy who likes to drive hard and win races! last time i checked that is what the sport is all about!

I think Mr. Sorenson should learn a little about racing. Racing as far back as I can remember has always had the bumb to push people out of the way. I'm seem to remember his daddy was a pro at it. Did you criticize Jeff Gordon when he did it earlier this year or when it has been done to other drivers? It seems to me that you have a problem with Jr personally. And why because he is so well respected and liked? And one more thing you think what Edwards did was ok? That after the race was over he hits an unexpected Jr while his arm was out the window and that is ok? And this isn't the first time he has done something like this, maybe he needs some anger management classes. Right or wrong what Jr did was racing what Edwards did was retalliation in anger which has no business on the race track.

jr was faster than edwards, maybe he should have waited to the last lap but its racing, how do you think his dad became so popular? nascar is fast becoming the biggest sissy sport around because of opinionated sports writers

It is very clear Sorenson has a problem with jr. Eddie Haskell could have taken jr's hand off with that childish act. All I keep reading is how jr RAMMED his car into Eddie, if that is so, why was there no damage to jr's front end? Hmmmmmmm...Sorenson I think just likes to write negative stuff to get his ratings up..Hmmmm..he knows jr fans are going to defend jr to the end.

Its scary that Cousin Carl is getting away with nothing more than a $20K Fine. There has to be consequences to actions not consequences only if something bad happens. What happens if Carl crushes Jr's hand into pieces and he is out for the year or even ends his career? Would the fine be the same? Carl likes to give that AW Schucks I am just glad to be here smile when he wrecks people and he has wrecked quite a few in the short time in the bigs. I guess when he wreck someone its just a mistake?
Can you say Eddie Haskel? Tony nailed it with him he is a phony who is out for himself and only knows the "Take" in the "Give and Take"

Sure if he keeps driving like he does..The announcers are the first to say that Jr. is the most forgiving driver out there, even when it's not his fault he takes the blame. Now if he starts driving like Eddie, he might just have that championship you don't think he can achieve. That's when Jr. turns into an uncaring blame every one else for his mistake driver..like Eddie.

LISTEN TO ME PEOPLE,EVERYONE HAS "THEIR" FAN,IT's all
good to like whoever,are we in america? I SAY sure its fun to bash other drivers and root for the home team of your choice,BUT lets not forget that everyone has a choice and we all agree to disagree and thats the fun on being here talking,right?but lets be careful not to
abuse that right by being totally abrasive and cruel,
we all want and like the same thing,racing and our drivers..:)

Sorenson knows who to mean mouth to get his name attention. What we should do is totaly ignore him and that is what he deserves. Who died and made you able to make NASCAR decisions?
