Congrats to Tony. Finally that monkey is off his back! Hated it for Smith, but he had to know that the rule about the yellow line at Dega and Daytona means something entirely different than the white lines at every other track.

Was happy to see Tony get Dega in his 20 car. He'll be awesome next year with his own team.

I'm tickled for Smoke. I didn't want him leaving JGR on a winless season. When Smoke put the block on Smith and forced him below the yellow line, had Smith held his position and not completed the pass, he would have finished second. Somebody should have been on the radion hollering in the kids ear to hold his position. Second is better than last man on the lead lap.

Seems like his whole team forgot about the rule. I don't get it. Can you imagine what anything goes on the last lap racing would look like. It would be dangerous.

Sorry, delusional. Carl took out a bunch of chasers, including 2 of his own teammates. In denial much?

What is spelled with an h. You can use caps. There is such a little thing as an '. Maybe if you knew some of these things then it would make reading the rule book just a little easier.LMAO

He wins bonehead move of the race. As he said in the interview afterwards, he road around all day in the back trying to avoid the idiots taking him out. Then he turns out to be the idiot. I was happy to hear him take the responsibility.

Personally I think those drivers that try to avoid the big one are just asking to be caught up in it. You can never be safe at Talladega, how many times did the wrecks occur in the front yesterday? I think maybe three or four times the car in the first two or three spots ended up in trouble. What a wild race.

Regan Smith, where did he come from? Oh yeah, DEI the team that is losing it's drivers and a major sponsor and all of a sudden they are competitive.

Inconsistent NASCAR.... this was NASCARS ruling from last year.

The 'rule' was metnioned at the end of ABC's broadcast, but NASCAR ruled otherwise.
Drivers throughout the Craftsman Truck Series garage were still talking about last week's [Feb 2007] three-wide finish at Daytona International Speedway. While they admitted the finish was good for television, most wondered why NASCAR allowed Johnny Benson to drive below the yellow line - Daytona's out of bounds line - to jump from third to second in the final 200 yards. Benson wasn't penalized because "if you can see the checkered flag on the last lap, anything goes," according to NASCAR spokesman Owen Kearns.
