Couldn't have been Junyas fault. He is the worlds greatest driver. somebody better give him a blood test. Twice he missed his pit box then he runs into the back of someone.

Vickers has proven himself to be a dirty driver, Jr. has not. Paybacks are a *itch, intentional or not.

Jr. should have been held for 5 laps. Just because his Dad was a great driver, does not mean he is. Tried of all the Jr. excuses. Tired of everyone making excuses for him. No matter how much fans want him to be, he will never be the driver his dad was.

Jr didn't know that Vickers was a lap down, so he said.

Yep. It was both their faults, Vickers for blocking with that many laps to go and Jr. for not letting up a little so they could both get their cars straightened out.

Watch the replay, whiners. His hands move toward Vickers. He hit Vickers on purpose. Whether or not you think Vickers deserved it (and I don't), the fact is that Junior took out a lot of the best cars because he couldn't keep himself under control.

His hands move toward Vickers because he was trying to get back in line behind him but didn't have enough room to clear him

The only difference was Daddy wrecked 1 car a race.

You see, when that happens a clean, SMART driver eases pressure on that little skinny pedal to the right and gets in line. It happens all the time. Even Dale Sr. didn't operate that way.

Plus any rookie stock car driver knows you don't bump low in the corner. It never works out.

He should be ashamed of not being able to do it successfully.
If you get down there first, it is called blocking.
When the guy with the run on you gets his right front fender inside and in front of your left rear fender, before you get down there...it is called wrecking.
I think Brian found that out again.
Of course he blamed it on the other guy.

He was trying to gather in his car after being bumped to the left by Vickers. Of course your hands will go to the right when getting bumped left.

Yeah, Brian never should have moved left below the yellow line when someone else already had their front fender beside their left rear side.
If Brian would have held his line, Jr, would be over the line and not be able to pass legally anyway.
Stupid move on Brian's part for sure.

As I said on the OTHER thread about this, Below the yellow = no run. didn;t we cover this with the Stewart - Regan Smith finish last year. This is one rule NASCAR is pretty consistent about. Vickers was going low before Junior pulled alongside, and junior went below the line before he got to Vickers. Junior had no business being there. He thought he could sneak in and get away with it. not singling him out, a lot of drivers do it, but he got in over his head and caused a wreck. End of story.
