Nascar's own rule says when there is a crash at the very end the race is supposed to be over. Nascar seems to be cheating so how can they teams what to do. The fans need to get a protest going to right a wrong.

No, I am not a Mark Martin fan.

Since when do we race back to the line when there is a wreck?? Waltrip said Nascar was right. The two drivers were ahead of the wreck. Well what about the other 20+ who were in the wreck and were racing back because of no caution!!! Later in the broadcast, they said the first two took the checkered and the rest finished under caution. What a joke!!!! If the race finished under caution, Martin is the winner. Nascar is beginning to be alot like wrestling. It's fun to watch, but the governing body decides the outcome. Congrats Mark Martin on your first Daytona 500 win. And by the way, I'm a Dale Jr. fan if you must know.

Thanks Nascar Forum
No thanks Nascar

The race should not have ended. What the hell is wrong with NASCAR ? Last week they were hardballing the drivers and owners, now they disregard their own rules !
Ending a race under caution ?
WTF ~ NASCAR !

there was a wreck at the end of the race, it was coming out of turn 4, im sure by the time they got the caution out they were past the start finish line already. im sure if it was coming out of turn 2 it would of been a different story.

How can NASCAR now look a team straight in the face and tell them not to cheat. Should NASCAR not look at their own rules and admit they made a mistake and change the Daytona results?

No, I am not a Mark Martin fan!

Mark was in front when all hell broke loose. It wasn't but a few years ago that a similar thing happened and the guy that thought he had won went to Victory Lane only to be told he lost. Nascar threw the yellow and at that moment he was behind the guy that won. He got screwed just like Mark got screwed today. Harvick will never have the class of a Mark Martin. Everyone Fox talked to after the race seemed to think Mark had it.

VERBAGE BELOW IS FROM THEIR OWN RULE BOOK,and NOTE FOX reported the race ended under the caution flag: Note the last sentence.

The yellow flag or caution flag indicates a hazard on the track. All cars must slow down and follow the pace car. Passing is not allowed under the yellow flag.

Nascar makes the rules but they only apply to some THE CAUTION FLAG SHOULD HAVE BEEN OUT!!!!!!!!!! MARK WON THE RACE AND THE WHOLE WORLDS RESPECT......
Believe it or not, I am on a dam boat between Memphis and Greenville and not a DAM Fox station to be had. Will have to watch the race on tape when I get home. How bad was the caution flag contreversy? On XM radio all the people did'nt take a stand either way. All the races I have seen have shown Nascar throwing the caution as soon as the wreck happens. How long did they wait. Alot of fans calling in on XM are pissed. I just don't know. Fill me in!!!

The crash occured 10 seconds before end of race ! The are travelling 200 feet per second, that's 2000 feet from finish line ! Almost a freaking half a lap of a 2.5 mile track!

Sorry to say Harvick is tool.

A few years back Johnny Sauter spun Kenseth to win a Busch race. In a post race interview Ole Kevie stated that it was ok to do to win a race.

The next night ole Kevie got spun out of first to lose the race. On the verge of tears he almost demanded a lifetime suspension for what happened.

Even die hard Harvick fans can't defend that.

All I wanna say is Mark Marin congratulations on you first Daytona 500 victory. Nobody ever expected you to be there and you did it. Mark Martin is a class act and he showed it today, Kevin Harvick is a wannabe. I celebrate Marks victory tonight it was awesome!!!

Darrel Waltrip said "I am glad they let them race to the finish.In my mind even though I did not see the race it sounds like Nascar did it differently than they normally do. I think all the fans ask for is to be consistent all the time so there is no doubt ever!

Either Mark and the field behind him Slowed Down, or Harvick had Nitros under his hood. I beleive Mark thought the caution was out, as the entire field behind him also slowed too. Watch the replay

BIll France Jr.~ get your act together pal!

For all of you who have nasty in your blood, I have to ask you, Why? Why not go tell all those people you hate face to face how you feel. Oh....and you might learn to spell also. Have a good day and try to be a decent human being
