It did didn't it. You know what sucks is the overwhelming sentiment that none of the top five or so should have been up there. And they all knew it and admitted it. That sucks.

Doesn't really matter how the victory came about. He's credited with the win.

They took a chance, those top 5 or 6 drivers, and it paid off.

Sometimes you get either really lucky, or you don't. JMO.

Yeah but you'd think they'd not point out that they probably didn't deserve it.

Did you see Mikey was almost crying in the media center?

I missed the race. We went to see Wall-E.:) But congrats to KB...and yep, a win is a win. I agree. Many others have won with rain shortened races, Kurt should be able to as well.:)

Really? Well in that case God has been very active this season. In fact he God must have taken a day off when Wimphardt Jr. accidentally won a few weeks ago.
Yes maybe God will re appear and shut your mouth for you. Your one ole nasty person with a mouth that needs a zipper....

Didn't deserve it? What the hell is that supposed to mean? THIS IS A CONTEST OF WIN OR LOSE. Hell, the way Old Man Earnhardt used to win was CHEATING..........One could say HE didn't deserve it either but oh I get it........A lot of you Earnhardt lovers think he was an "OUTLAW" probably much the same as you think about Tim (Baldy) McGraw. Oh yeah, everybody thinks he's BAD now since he pulled that little stunt with a misbehaving audience member. Well guess what........With as much security and backup as McGraw had anyone could have done what he did. He's no badass........Hell, Richard Simmons could have done the same thing with as much backup as McGraw had.
Give'em hell....:)

Who was so crass as do to it like that? Did anyone point out to Gordon last year when he won a rain delay that he really didn't deserve it?

Wow......

And Kenny Wallace said on Victory Lane last night that people will be talking but remember, "JR DIDNT DESERVE TO WIN A COUPLE WEEKS AGO EITHER" Now watch it on rerun, he says it toward the end!!

Yeah, I watched that Granny, and I was rather shocked that it came out of Kenny's mouth. However, I think JR realized that he had been lucky to win, imo.

Some of the problem with that show afterwards, is that hosts are so busy sucking up to the winners that they throw the previous winners up to the lions.

I'm still trying to figure out what Tim McGraw, Dale Sr and Richard Simmons have to do with this race.
This was written by a total idiot.

A win is a win is a win..Mikey got one of his Daytona 500 wins because of rain.

This happens all the time...part of the game.

Will be seeing the boys at Daytona on Saturday!
