HAHA suck it up. Next time you want to trash a driver for a mistake, better make sure your own driver hasn't done the same thing!!!

Hey if you can't see that saying all the signs look the same and that NASCAR needs to look at a rule because he broke it, is an excuse there's not much I can do.
The signs look all the same could be the REASON he screwed up. He admitted he screwed up.

As for the comments about the line, I agree that was whinny. Rules are rules are rules. If the rule states that you cannot be on the line, then you cannot be on the line. I am surprised, though, that his crew did not understand the ramifications of continuing to work on the car AFTER the official pointed out the infraction. It seems to me that the lead guy out there should have told Jr to move. Jr cannot see the line so he was probably unaware of being on it. The crew should have signaled him to back up and move in and THEN work on the car. I am not shirking the blame off Jr, he should have pulled in better (that is completely JR's fault) but when the crew realized it, they should have signaled him to move. He would have lost some seconds, but it was better than losing a lap.

They go from 200mph to 55mph that's like moving in slow motion.
Each pit stall is roughly 25'- 30' long (almost twice the lenght of the car).
I feel pretty confident even little old me would be able to pull it off.
Jim,

I guess that little old man can pit better than GB today as he overshot the stop box in his pit stall causing an air hose issue. By the way, Bif was WAY more than an inch off. He was off by several FEET!!!!

I am not saying this to rub it in your face, just to show you that ALL drivers make mistakes sometimes.

It is a shame too, Bif had a strong car today.

Well guess we should bump this up. I think it is hilarious how many trashed Jr. I think Greg should get a standing ovation for missing his pitbox.

So how fast was the great Biff going when he blew his pit?
