OH GOOD! Sounds like this guy is mature enough to race NASCAR. How many more immature drivers do we have to train in NASCAR because their parents didn't do the job? Being a poor sport on a soccer field is one thing. Being a poor sport and ramming cars is something else. Glad he lost the championship. He didn't deserve it.

Demolition Derby! Now there is a sport. Ram all you want and no one calls you a poor sport.

Scott Speed lost the championship because Stenhouse deliberately wrecked him, not because he took Stenhouse out of the running when the officials chose to look the other way. Speed's car was not drivable after the wreck.

Stenhouse was driving FAR too aggressively for so early in the race. It was obvious that he had been coached so that he would pretend it was an accident. Right! Stenhouse drives a lot like the driver of the duck-sponsored Roush cup car.

I think that angry duck was riding with him.
Somebody needs to get rid of Roush's ducks.He thought if he could wreck Scoot he could win the championship. They should have stopped him from going back on the track since he started the wrecking..... Well we all know who had a ride this weekend.....
