I for one like the, "have at it", attitude NASCAR has implemented, its more like racing in the early days. Spinning somebody with just a couple laps left or on the last lap has always been a driver perogotive. Rough driving and cuss fights and fist fights were just part of the show, whether it was a Saturday night feature race at a local speedway or at the big track on Sunday with the NASCAR regulars. Some folks get confused and call it dirty driving, I dont call it dirty to turn another car if they turned you or did something to mess up your day. Retaliation is a big part of stockcar racing too. NASCAR layed down the sword and are allowing drivers to be themselves, I thought Joey Logano grew up a bunch after he got in Harvicks face, it was just good to see the kid stand up for himself when he felt he was wronged, its a dang wonder Kevin didnt warp him plum outta his frame, but Joey stood his ground and gained some respect that day. In all, this was the best move NASCAR has took in a while. Get rough and rowdy boys, NASCAR said it was alright!!!

The "have at it" is ok for short tracks but at the speeds these missiles are running on the large tracks today, a friendly nudge or love tap could result in someone getting killed. The drivers take too many chances today because they think they are bullet proof and their cars are indestructible. Lets hope 2011 doesn't see another tragedy.

Your right ThomasA, the large tracks are no place to be playin around. The bump draft even causes problems, but its sure fun to watch. Right on again with no tragedies this year. I hope for a safe 2011 for all NASCAR!!
