Gilliland is sooo full of it! He and Juan have been knocking heads for weeks. He needs to practice his "Oh oops, my car got loose and slid up on him" manuver because it's not real believable. The tape doesn't lie. Hope NASCAR sits him down.

I'll be contacting gilligan's sponser's to see what they have to say about what happened this past weekend. Spinning Montoya into the wall while running 180+ could have seriously injured/killed him - Dale Earnhardt anyone... Once I get the sponser's comments - I'll be using my web 2.0/programming knowledge to post "press releases" on the sponser's positions to the web. In other words, you google one of the sponsers names - a video of gilligand wrecking Montoya along with the sponsers comments will be available for all to see. Should be fun ;)

Ol boy got parked and he's not even man enough to admit he made a wussy move. Not someone I would be a fan of but hey to each their own. I think people pick drivers by their own personality myself! I guess since the chump was so far behind he decided to be a Moron and risks the other drivers life as well. What a wuss!

I'm not in favor of knocking someone around going over 100MPH but I suspect about every driver on the circuit owes Juanwreckum a few.

Who's your driver may I ask? We'll see how many times he's wrecked! LOL! I got some crash data you could take a look at. If your driver is stewart you wont be happy he wrecked as many times as Juan did last year! After say 10 years in cup!

The end just doesn't justify the means here. He was wrong and coulda been DEAD WRONG. I hope NASCAR throws the book @ him.

I'd normally agree that there needs to be consistency in the rules but wrecking someone at a flat track and wrecking someone at a 1.5 mile speedway are too different to ignore. It's one of the few cases where you need judgement calls based on the situation.

But Gilliland's Cinderalla story is over, I don't see how he'll keep his ride over Kvapil when Menard goes over to YR next year. The best he's ever run in Cup has been at restrictor plate tracks and road courses so being competitive at just 4 out of 22 tracks doesn't cut it. But maybe he'll end up becoming a crew chief?
