Kahne admitted that had a run pulled from behind JJ,changed lanes and in front of Kyle. He said he thought Kyle had time to get off the throttle. therefore It was both their faults not 100% Kyle .

well thats what you get with restrictor plate racing ,they should get back to their roots , N.A.S.C.A.R. stands for National Assciation for Stock Car Auto Racing , is there anything that makes these cars stock , can you go buy the 3 cars they race with V8s . remember when they had to sell a certain amount of cars to race that model ..if they want to slow the cars down make them run V6s , I don't think people will care if they go 170 instead of 200 ....

Times have changed in 30 years...
This type of racing is exciting for tv...
Wrecks and rub'n, drama, feuds.... Nascar needs each for entertainment... Having 30 cars strung out over 2 miles is not entertaining

Sayn, you are right..that's why they have lucky dog and the wave around. They want to keep cars bunched up and especially keep the stars on lead lap if they have a problem early on.

Nascar has a new definition: Not Another Stupid Caution Again Really. If nascar what's to get people to watch mayhem, turn this thing into a 10 lap shoot out. There shouldn't be any qualifying, run what you brung type of format. Gathering the field together for the last handful of laps is going to really be bad one day. look at the final lap at the nationwide series at Daytona. Spectators were hurt. Just my thoughts. Don't want to see bad things happen to good people.

Nascar doesn't want to slow the cars down, they want to bunch them up. Better chance of wrecks , to keep the fans interested.

your right times have changed , 30 years ago you couldn't get a ticket to a race , they had a waiting list , now empty seats , good for tv but theres nothing like being there .. wish sombody would start a new stock car series , like the old one , I think if they did they could bury nascar in a few years ....

The stands were 1/4 the size of today's...w/o tv, no series can compete

I would like to see NASCAR do one dirt track a year, and cancel a road coarse
