I believe that Jimmy Johnson was the best car at the race yesterday and did deserve to win, but I have never set through such a boring terrible race.

It was ashame that the tire issue had not been resolved long before the running of the race. I will think hard about coming back next year.

JJ did have the best car. Even after coming out of the (million) pits 4th or 5th he would just fly right around the leaders.

but, if they would have allowed the guys who early pitted to continue to do so, he might not have won.. he might have been in the same shoes as a lot of other drivers each week with the best car that get "outsmarted" in the pits and I think NASCAR closing the pits for 3 laps before the cautions was totally unfair.. it put Bobby in a bad spot and he HAD to go in for his tire.. NASCAR SUCKS! AS ALWAYS!!!

Hubby, who is a Jimmie fan, felt that the 48 was speeding on pit road but never called on it. Didn't see the whole race, but that is his take.

If he was speeding so were all the other cars because they all followed him down pit road. He was in the 1st pit so it would have been impossible for him to speed off of pit road as the line is right there.
