Lets stop and think what Keselowski did to Edwards last year. this year the first oppotunity that Keselowski got, he wreck Edwards again. Edwards car went airborne into the fence which injured a fan. Grant what Edwards done was not right, however, how many times does he need to be wrecked by this kid before Nascar does something? Nascar did nothing last year after that wreck. I would be sick and tired of it as well. I would probably retaliate too, the unfortunate thing is Keselowski's car went airborne.

I agree with your comments. No one got all bent last year when Edwards was airborne. Go Carl! Brat will get no respect until he gives it.

If it was not going to be Carl to retaliate, it would have been someone else....Brad needs to find something else to do!!!!

Agree with all of you. NASCAR said Let the drivers handle it. Ok, Carl handled it. I think they both learned something at Atlanta. If Brad chooses not to think twice before punting someone, I'm SURE that another driver will step up for the NEXT lesson. Just glad that no one got hurt on this one.

I just don't understand why Roger Penske hired Krashlousy in the first place. Generally, he hires squeeky clean, no nonsense, respectable talent. Krashlousy is arrogant, obnoxious, irreverant, and quite frankly, a guy you love to hate. It certanly wasn't because he's a superstar. He's got a long way to go before he reaches that level. IMHO, he never will.

I really don't like Carl Edwards but I thought it was great that someone finally let Brad know that he will get what he gives. I wish that Brad had not flipped over but I was glad to see him out of the race.

Kurt Busch.... Squeeky clean, no nonsense, respectable talent?? Did you forget Roush fired his azz because of the same exact reasons you give for why Penske shouldn't have hired BK?

Ah, who gives a f@#k! We can't go a single race without those pu##y heads up at NASCAR taking away the fun of the race. What Carl did was a little extreme but da@#it he was pissed! I would have done the same thing. NASCAR needs to go back to when no one gave a f@#k and just raced hard as hell and did whatever they could to win. NASCAR is run by f@gs and pu##ies now. It's just boring. It's become a god d@mn reality show. I'm sick with it!

I'm not defending either one. Edwards seems to have problems with a lot of guys even his own teammates. Keslowksi is a hard nose driver probably picked it up from the way his dad drove on the little tracks in Mich and Ohio. I understand his need to know that since he is a young guy drivers aren't going to push him around but he needs to give a little. He got a free pass though when he drove for Jr.

He needs to defend his driving ability. His winless streak is climbing. He's never been the same since JJ stuck it to him for the title in '08. The only descent Roush driver is Kenseth. At least he won a championship.

i hope the 3 dodge cars in all of nascar finish 1-2-3 at bristol ! with over 20 years more r&d and testing, u would think chevy and ford would be killing the dodges and the toy
cars ! dodge motorsports knows they can make better h.p. and torq, but everybody without a dodge will bitch little girls ! anyone remember the hemi they banned ! nascar is
a joke, they always find a way to make me not want to drive to brooklin again !
hey nascar, you should let the boys at nhra show how to run a motorsports program even if it dont put millions of dollars in your pockets you scammers !!! bet toyota paid a fat chunk of cash to get in!

[/QU
OTE] sorry for telling the truth, but i am upset with nascar and waiting for them to make things rite ! i want to see a real motor in the car like the old days! make them run whatever they build for production use in there cars! guess fraud would have to build a pushrod motor again! with all the rules and crap the teams and owners go through, you would think they would say enough of nascar and form a new organization to race under ! nascar dont own any track that im aware of ! nascar had done a pretty awsome job for years but that was overwith years ago! if i ran nascar i would wreck the whole program also, i am not a bussiness man by no means but some people out there could make it a great program again !!! would love a reason to
drive to m.i.s again!

how about busch's new turbo challenger drag car ! think he might get in to a prostock type car in the future! all that happens in nascar should stay there quietly ! make these teams run the hemi and l.s.type motors and fraud will jump on as usual or build a killer piece like they should have years ago! all they have is a bunch mod motor stuff that is junk which any mechanic can attest to! if nascar said ok, we are going to go back to factory parts, dodge will hurt the competition . genral motors l.s.motor would work awsome and where are fraud and toyo at, the back as usual , sorry ford and toyota!!!

Well, point well taken. I didn't think about Kurt. People that came to mind were Sam Hornish, Rick Mears, Ryan Briscoe, Al Unser, Jr. in Indy car. Roger seems to have gone a little more to the dark side in NASCAR.

This isn't the end of Carl Edwards trouble. He'll keep it clean for a while but some time down the road shortly, he'll loose his temper and it will be a similar story with someone else. Right now, Joey Logano needs to stuff a couple in the wall just to let the world know to back off and race him decent. He needs to start with Harvick. He needs to spin Harvick at Martinsville in both races just to get his attention.
